★ ★ ★ Donating Removes Most Reminder Ads ★ ★ ★
How to Donate:
As you might imagine, due to the content on the site, companies that run credit card and payment processing have refused to work with us. So that rules out most of the convenient means of payment. At this time the preferred way to make is payment is via BitCoin, if you would like to know other options, please email me at email@example.com
Patreon: (Current Members Only)
This is the preferred method for anyone that already has an account and helps out the most on the site. The idea is you make a 10$ donation each month to keep the site going. If we reach 350 people on this program, this site becomes self sustaining. You can read more about it, or donate here.
Patreon: The Prefered Donation Method of Documenting Reality
You can donate via bitcoin below. If you are new to BitCoin, CoinBase is great, it's what I use. When donating below, please add your forum username where it asks for your Full Name. That way I know who to apply it to. If you are looking for a membership, please use the link on the register page. Either way, once you donate by bitcoin, please send me an email letting me know so I can get you going. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please contact me at chris@documentingreality for details.
Membership levels work like this:
Registered Users: (Black Names)
Registered users will be able to access the entire site and all content. This level of membership could have ads displayed or other means that keep costs low, such as bandwidth limiting, and stuff like that.
Supporting Member: (Blue Names)
Supporting members are members that have donated the suggested amount of 20$ to help support the site. They have no ads, and no restrictions placed on their accounts for a term of one year, once that year passes, their account will drop down to the Registered Users level. After that one year passes, if you donate the suggested amount again, your account will be moved back up to a Supporting Member for another year.
Legacy Member: (Blue Names)
Legacy members are just like Supporting Members, except they were grandfathered in, so they do not have to donate the 20$/Year to keep their upgraded status. They got this because they were early donators, and donated to the site when they got nothing in return.
Legacy Gold Member: (Green Names)
This is the highest level you can be here without being an admin. This level has no restrictions and elevated permissions and is reserved for people who continue to support the site via Patreon. This is also the area mods are plucked from.
