    Hey guys,

    Does one have to be a donor to become a Jr.Vip ?

    I mean all the Jr,Vip's I've seen so far have donated, so I wonder if I have to donate to premium membership to become Jr.Vip ?

    Sorry for the stupid question

    no, you don't need to be donor to become jr.vip

    all jrvips have donor status, because the fee we pay for jrvip is donorship as well

    Sorry, got it now : ) I just thought if you are a donor you could use links in your signature, everything's clear now : )

    yes, if you are a donor you can use links in your sig.. just donor is limited alternative or Jrvip which has no restrictions (like 100 posts rule) to apply in and take advantage of sig and etc..

    You may have seen some Jr VIPs without the Donor status because in 2008 once over I think 100 posts you automatically become a Jr VIP without donating.

    Hey,

    It costs the same amount of money, you don't have to buy donor and JR VIP. Basically if you don't yet meet the qualifications for JR VIP (membership time and post count) you can't purchase it but you can purchase donor. Donor allows extra benefits such as sig links and increased PM box, etc. Other people pay the $97 to become a donor because they got info/tools/etc. that made them a bunch of money and want to give back but don't have the requirements yet to be JR VIP.

    Once you hit the time and post count if you paid for donor status you can PM a mod and have your donor status upgraded for free to JR VIP (since you did already pay the $97; don't quote me on that I know it used to be the rule but there is new ownership so I'd def ask first).

    Not true, I've been here since early '07 (well that's when I signed up I browsed for many months before) and I was never upgraded to JR VIP for free even with around 1K posts at the time unless it was for people pre '07 which is possible but not that likely as they started in very late '05/early '06 and there are very very few pre '07 users and even less that are active so I'm sure you're not seeing them around all over the place (I actually don't know of any that are currently active with an '06 date although I'm sure there's a couple).

    Has that come about since the new owners took over? Because my understanding is that they are different items that come with different privileges, specifically that JrVIP still cannot use links or adverts in their signature - only donors can do this.

    Can a mod clarify this?

    They are different things but they cost the same amount both are $97. Also I'm 99.99999% certain that JR VIP can use links in their sigs; I mean look at all the JR VIPs with links in their sigs and all the topics there about buying/selling/trading sig link space with one another; I find it hard to believe that the vast majority of JR VIPs pay both of those subscriptions but again I dunno - I've never been a JR VIP I went from a regular to Exec VIP. That's why I said you should confirm with a mod first. I know people USED TO be able to get donor before JR VIP requirements and then when they hit the posts/time they could pm and get upgraded (I remember specifically it happened a couple of times) BUT we have a new owner and there is no written rule about this so I don't know if it is still like this, or maybe it was only done because these people had made a mistake actually only wanting JR VIP and the mods just changed their permissions from one to the other?

    The Jr. VIP process has been handled differently throughout the years depending on who was running the forum and what version of VB was in place when the upgrade occurred. There may be a few floating around without donor status but unless specifically noted, all Jr. VIPs are treated the same.

    You only need to pay $97 once to use get Jr. VIP status and use sig links.
