Premium Members are members who have made a charitable donation to our site to help cover our operational costs. To show our gratitude we give our Premium members perks free of charge after your donation.
The Forum costs a fair amount of money to maintain every year with our servers and operational costs . These costs have been out of our own pocket for many years and we ask our kind members to help assist us to keep the site going.

Premium Members are never permitted any special treatment in regard to our competitions or following the forum rules. All members are subject to the rules they agreed to follow upon registration at all times. Donating money will not prevent a member from being disciplined if they break the Forum Rules. Donating money will likewise not serve to unban a banned member. These things should be obvious but we state them here just to be clear!
Payment is made via the online payment merchant PayPal (the worlds largest online payment method, owned by Ebay) which is a safe way to make payments online.

Please note that every charitable donation goes directly to the Forum's operational fund. This site is entirely financed by your donations. This is why we are so very grateful for your help! Also take note that your donation is NOT for the special perks - it is for the forum's operational fund ONLY. The perks are a gift that we give you in return. The donation and the perks are not inextricable - if you are interested in gaining the perks without the voluntary donation, or if you wish to donate but not receive the perks, please contact an Administrator.
Whether you choose to be a Premium Member or not, remember: it's just an option, and you don't need to. Either way... we hope you enjoy the forum!
