I'm wondering if I should wait before I have 100 posts to pay for the membership.
No you cannot go from premium to JR VIP, its $97
Even I was wondering the same. I think it's really not fair to be made to make payments twice. We're early supporters.
While others who quickly spam and move to 100 posts get Jr. VIP status after a single payment.
I just realized it's not the same benefits.
There is really no guarantee that paid members don't spam. Go through the list of banned members.
I completely understand. However, I still think having to pay twice is a bit far-fetched.
Atleast a discount for Donors while upgrading to Jr. VIP should be present.
If $97 is a stretch for you just wait to renewal comes around. Cancel the old one now in your PayPal and buy the new one then?
Yeah, that's like a year away man.
I got the Donor membership a few days ago when I wasn't aware that there would be a seperate payment for Jr. VIP - I looked around and judging from the threads I saw, I thought that Donors simply upgraded to Jr. VIP once they reached 100 posts. Then once I got the membership, I was informed that the payment would have to be made again to become Jr. VIP.
I am just stating my thoughts. I have no other options, but to pay again, do I?
Try to message an admin or a mod I guess lol.
No problem - Can you point us to the threads where you read that "judging from the threads I saw, I thought that Donors simply upgraded to Jr. VIP once they reached 100 posts. " This has never been the case. We need to correct these.
As you can see from the screen shot below BHW make is clear Premium isn't the same as Jr. VIP.Plus you require 100 posts for full Jr. VIP.

I merely Googled how to become a Junior VIP on BHW and came across a plethora of threads.
Each mentioned that you need 100 posts and 60 days of membership and a $97 donation. I thought I've already done the $97 donation, I am already a member for more than 60 days. So now all I need is a 100 quality posts and I'll be on my way to a Jr. VIP. So I set out to share stuff, made and published guides etc. And then came cross a thread that stated that going from Pink to Blue requires another donation. That is what dejected me a bit.
Since essentially, that makes my first $97 pointless, right?
PleaseCancel the old one now in your PayPal.
Much thanks. Many wow. So answers!
Why would you google something when you can find it here.
and to be fair that was stated clearly even in the old version: thoses 2 memberships are seperated .
I went to donor once I had reached a fair level and felt comfortable that I wanted to be here long term. I then upgraded to Jr. VIP and yes it was another fee, but I happen to think it should be that way. this isn't a place you can just blast through in a month or two, and if you're planning on staying what's wrong with the fees? You're in a great place, so enjoy it, contribute and you'll see it's returned 10 fold.
@BlogPro maybe you should have fucking read what it said on the membership page, it clearly says that paying for Premium membership wont make you a Jr.VIP. Do you even know what being a "donor" means? Even the members that have been around for 2 months and have 100+ posts can become a premium member if they choose to, the $97 you give is just a donation, in turn, as a thank you, BHW gives you a pink username along with a donor badge and maybe one or two extra features.
Your argument is invalid, because if you had actually read what it said on the page before paying $97, you would know the difference between Jr.VIP and premium member. Seriously, do people even fucking read what it says before just paying for something, or is it a new trend to blindly pay for something and bitch about it because it didn't meet your imaginary expectations?
EDIT: "I merely Googled how to become a Junior VIP on BHW and came across a plethora of threads." Dude, what is wrong with you? It clearly says on the actual fucking membership page that paying for Premium membership won't make you a Jr.VIP, is that not clear enough? People like you piss me off so much.
It is never a good idea to argue with potential clients on a platform where you're a seller. Especially, when you have no business participating as such.
I have clearly stated above where the misconception happened. I have also stated that I will pay again and that is no issue. The beauty of a forum like this is that we're allowed to put forth our views. Which is exactly what I did.
So calm your tits! The discussion was over a couple hours ago.
The fact that I'm a seller is the reason why I jumped in, I've dealt with people who just skimmed past my sales thread and samples and just ordered, but when the work was delivered, they started bitching about something that was never promised in the first place, I hate these type of buyers. Oh and even if I hadn't posted a reply in this thread, I would have avoided doing any business with you after reading your above posts.
P.S: I don't have any active services on this forum at the moment, everything is either sold out or paused.
Anyways, I wish you the best of luck, sorry for sounding a bit too harsh.
Good for you man. And sorry to see you not interested in doing any business with me.
As far as my views are concerned - I still stand by them and zero apologies will be made for them. I never bitched about anything - I just pointed out as to how easily it is to be confused.
I have no qualms in paying the fee again and I will be doing so as soon as I hit 100. I did once and I will do it again. That doesn NOT make my opinions matter any less.
To each his own bud. Coz if we all agreed on the same things, won't life be a boring trip to death?
Fair enough man, I'm the one who should apologize for using bad language, sorry about that. See you around.
