    What's up with all the red badges under User names? They're Subscribers!

    How are donations and subscriptions different?

    Hitting the "Donate" button is just that - making a donation. AK appreciates it, it keeps the server running and the site up. (We use a little bandwidth, too. :D )

    A Subscription is set up through your User Control Panel, and while it does get money to AK, it also offers you a few bonuses, as well:

    • Private forums only for Subscribers (including Barter Town, for 'insider' buying and selling).
    • PM capacity increases to 1250.
    • Picture storage increases to 100 MB (Reg. members get 20 MB).
    • Create photo albums on your user profile page with 2.5 MB of storage space (Reg. members get 1 MB).
    • You can delete your own posts.
    • The ability to add a poll to a thread.
    • Bigger signature limit.
    • Choose to display your name in "Subscriber Red".
    • Use animated gifs as your Avatar.
    • Gain the ability to be "invisible" to the rest of the board. (No one can see when you're online).
    • Subscribers will not be kicked if Idle in chat. Means they can walk away from their computer without chat tossing them out.

    To become a Subscriber, go to your User Control Panel and check the menu under "Miscellaneous", there's a line item called "Subscriptions". Click the link and you'll be walked through signing up and paying with PayPal. Cost is $25.00 per year.

    Due to AK being a free web site, we rely heavily on donations to keep this site afloat. The donations do not cover all of our expenses, so we are offering you the opportunity to help AK, and get something in return by becoming an AK Subscriber!

    Please remember to use the link in your User Control Panel to Subscribe!

    I can't believe that of all the places someone would be telling people to try and get a free subscription that it would be in the Mac forum.

    Just trying to make everyone aware of the benefits of subscribing to AK with the positive of a chance to win a free subscription. Hopefully people will be inspired to become subscribers and with their support Audiokarma will continue to be one of the best sites on the web.

    Your negative post on the other hand benefits no one.

    It wasn't meant to be negative. It just seems kind of ironic is all. I would think that it would be more readily seen by most members if it was in the general audio section or something. I would guess that the people in the McIntosh forum would be the people who could afford McIntosh gear... Thus probably not really needing a free subscription. I mean I've been a subscriber to AK for years and I never look in this forum because there's no way I can afford this stuff.

    I'm just sayin...
