We are now offering SMF Premier Memberships for those who have asked for this! As always, the forum is absolutely FREE and there is no requirement or expectation, but when you "chip in" it is greatly appreciated. This forum comes at a cost and we try to offset this with ads and some affiliate links. The premier memberships help to defray the remaining amount. With a premier membership, you are not only supporting this forum but there are PERKS involved too. You get to turn off the Ads You can post a link to your website, facebook, etc. in your signature area You get a badge on your profile letting everyone know that you "chipped in". More than anything else, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the forum that you love. Once you get to the "account upgrade" area, you'll see the following (4) options: 1 year membership for $15 2 year membership for $25 3 year membership for $40 Lifetime membership for $100 Choose the one that you like and click on the "Purchase" button to go to Paypal where you can use your Paypal account or a credit/debit card (no paypal account or login required) to purchase your account upgrade.
