What's up with all the red badges under Usernames? They're Subscribers! How do donations and subscriptions differ? Hitting the "Donate" button is just that - making a donation. AK appreciates it as it keeps the server running. A Subscription is available from your User Control Panel, and while it does benefit AK, it offers a few bonuses, as well: • Private forums only for Subscribers, including Barter Town. • PM capacity increases to 1250. • Picture storage increases to 50 MB (Reg. members get 1.5 MB.) • You can delete your own posts. • 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). To become a Subscriber, simply 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. The cost is $25.00 per year. You may also send your check or money order (with member name) to: AudioKarma LLC, 29488 Woodward Ave., Suite 160, Royal Oak, MI 48073 Although AK is a free web site, we rely heavily on donations to keep it 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! Thank you for your support.
