    Post Our Donate Tab Is Now Active

    To all of our friends and members here at Whats Best Forum, this community we call home during the day, Ron and I wanted to announce that our Donate Bar is now active. It is always an awkward moment to discuss donations with members but the reality is nothing is for free and it costs money on a regular basis to keep this web site active. There are on going recurrent expenses as well as the expense of traveling to audio shows for reports and pictures. To that extent Ron and I are once again asking for annual donations to support this cause. The Donate tab has been simplified. It can be found at the top of the home page or clicking here....

    http://www.whatsbestforum.com/misc.php?do=donate

    Donations from $25 to $200 and if you want to donate an amount and stretch the payments this is an option as well. The Donate Bar will remain open for ongoing donations

    Please be certain to add your username here at WBF to gain user recognition as a VIP/Donor

    So again on behalf of Ron and I and the admin staff I want to thank you all for helping with whatever you can donate as well as all of your ongoing posts here

    I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who has graciously donated. Your contributions are most appreciated

    Several members however have donated but have not included their usernames at WBF in order that they may be recognized. Many I have found by email addresses but other email addresses don't match what we have in our database. To those who have donated but note seen their user group change please contact me so that I can make the amendment

    Hi John

    Some people have a different email address for PayPal than they do for WBF. If this is the case, when you donate, I have been asking people to include their username at WBF when they donate

    It has been brought to my attention that the VIP/Donor Usergroup lacked all of the permissions that they had in their previous user group. As a result avatars have been accidentally disabled. This is totally my fault and I amended the permissions in this VIP/Donor group as well as increasing permissions from their previous user group to this new VIP/Donor Group

    My apologizes to those affected. Things should be better now. Please let me know if there are still issues

    as microstrip just pointed out most members have lost their avatars and for that I am uncertain as to the cause so a ticket has been submitted.
