    Bike Forum Membership and Upgrade?

    I have really enjoyed the benefits of this forum for many years now.

    I understand there are "opportunities" to upgrade to a paid support level on the bike forum but for the life of me I can't find any details.

    Can someone direct me to the forum or link that discusses paid memberships and how to go about contributing?

    Go to your User Control Panel. On the left side, scroll down until you see 'Miscellaneous'. Click on 'Paid Subscriptions'.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the comments on how to get to the "paid subscriptions" area. I just signed up for $25. I have seen some comments about something called Titanium membership. Is Titanium membership something I have just signed up for or is there another category. The miscellaneous area in the control panel only provided one $25 option.

    BAL, you have the Titanium level. Red star is obsolete, and no longer offered as a membership option. The current red stars will run their benefits to the end of their subscription, though.

    So the red star and titanium are not the same thing? I have to wait until 2037 to upgrade?

    One question: I have been in the habit of contributing a $25 subscription every year or so... this option seems to be gone. Now my only option is to buy the annual subscription and have my account ding'ed annually?

    Hmmm.... I seem to prefer the push rather than pull method of payment. Any possibilities there?

    You can upgrade now, and if you want, we can return you to your Red Star status if you decide not to continue with Ti. Your Red Star will continue anyhoo tuil it's end of subscription, and I can keep it listed as a secondary user group tp preserve it. PM me and I'll explain further.

    Ok. I subscribed. Hopefully I won't have a major financial fiasco when you re-subscribe.

    Thanks for all. I really enjoy BF.
