    paying membership fees

    It would be a boost to paid subscriptions if you included information on how to pay by check next to the pay pal choice to pay. Maybe make it a minimum membership of 6 months if paid by check as opposed to 3 months if paying by paypal. I do not want a paypal account and I would venture to say niether does a lot of old members that do not post in SGN since the change. Let me know what you think?

    I think you can do it as a one-time thing without creating an account. Am I wrong?

    Re: paying membership fees

    The "Tiered membership" thread in the reference section includes paying by check option and is a required read for new members and has been sent out to all members a couple months ago. There is no way for me to add that info to the membership sign up section. Anyone wishing to pay by check, is welcome to do so and can contact me for mailing info.

    Re: paying membership fees

    I think the idea is to recover some of the costs already expended for the site. Adding the cost of a P.O. Box would be antithetical to that.

    And you can't blame a guy for not wanting to put his personal addy on an open forum.

    It's not that easy. All that code would do would be to make a separate line with an address to send it to. The <p> are for paragraphing down. Also by members contacting Skidoo directly there is a copy of the username, how long their subscription should be and of what type. With just an address to send checks to people would likely forget to include the details needed to process the subscription.

    Using your girlfriends PayPal account shouldn't be an issue. There can be a delay depending on the type of payment method used via PayPal and server speeds. If you are not gold by this evening touch base with Skidoo or myself.

    You can pay without using a Paypal account

    Just a credit card is needed.
