    I've been on here for a while and have learned a lot and have shared a lot. Now, I feel that it is time to give back (financially) to BHW.

    I realize that there is a Donate link on top that discusses some of this, but is there any advantage other than new icons when it comes to being a Donor or Jr VIP?

    Jr VIP has it's own membership - I get that.

    If I want both, does that mean I pay $97 x2?

    I'd be more likely to pay $175 (one transactions) and have both than pay $97 twice.

    Any thoughts?

    you're a donor and a jrvip also, but you're completely wrong :)
    if you're "only" a donor, you can't access the jrvip forum
    and if you're "only" a jrvip, you don't have the donor tag

    but it easily can be that i'm wrong and you're right, as i'm neither a donor, nor a jrvip lol

    Thanks guys.

    @HoneyBird - You have very impressive stats but you are not a Jr VIP. Any particular reason why you have decided not to make the investment?

    I will donate as a way to say thank you, but i want Jr VIP membership to learn more.

    so you say if you're only a donor (you buy the premium membership and not the jrvip) you can access the jrvip section?
    and it seems i was wrong with the donor tags :)

    @theindiphile - Your stats go completely against the requirements for Jr VIP membership. haha

    If you have been a member of the forum for at least 60 days, and have made at least 100 posts

    @biz - If you are going to talk down to others, you can at least back it up with facts. You are right about the donor only not getting VIP membership.

    Now, to make it easy for you, I am posting the text from the Donate page. Simply copy and paste the section that "says everything nicely" regarding VIP's getting the donor tag. If you are right, great. If you are wrong, you will be wrong in front of everyone.

    Are you up for it?

    I told myself months ago that I'll become a Jr VIP once I have a Reputation of 40.

    I figured that at that point, I will not only be able to learn what is in the VIP section, but I will also be able to contribute.

    Only 10 to go... Not sure how long it will take to get to 40 but I'll keep helping others as much as I can and hope that it is sooner than later.
