Donations to HSS go straight to my monthly costs of running this site and as a donating member you are assigned extra privileges. The biggest thing is your forums name is tagged as a donating member. Your name will be green in the members list and a special tag will be added to your name to indicate your donation. It doesn't matter if you donate $10 or $100 you still get the tag.
You will also be assigned to a new forum for Donating Members in which we discuss forum matters. This is the group that I turn to when I have a question about a feature, etc. I rely heavily on the opinions of the folks that have made donations as I see them as cornerstones of this community. If you are willing to donate it means you care about this board and what we do here. It means a lot to me that you donate your hard earned dollars to this community.
The real reason for this post is to inform Donating Members that I have a new assignment for you! Check the forum that I have setup for you and discuss the matter in there.
If you haven't made a donation you can via this link. Join us. (no kool-aid involved) Just some fine folks!
