    The terms say You need to be a member for 60 days and you need over 100 posts. How come I see Jr Members all the time that have under 100 posts?

    Jr. VIP Membership
    If you have been a member of the forum for at least 60 days, and have made at least 100 posts, your $97 donation will promote you to a Jr. VIP membership, which allows you to access the hidden Jr. VIP forums.


    Did they get the hook up? :D

    I'm sure exceptions can be made when a mod or admin personally knows someone and can vouch for them.

    Perhaps they have connections with mods/admins or had more posts which got deleted when certain sections were deleted and banned for discussion

    I think if someone makes a post that gets moved to Jr VIP, the poster gets Jr VIP also.

    No this is not the true. If the post is moved to jr vip only jrvips will see it excluding the guy who made the post.

    I could be wrong, but I've seen it mentioned a couple times.

    Another reason can be, when CS and Ewho sections were deleted, the post count of those guys that were already vips decrased under 100 posts

    It's because the mods/admins don't care too much anymore.

    The donation of $97 indeed gets you the title "Jr. VIP." BUT, despite of the new title under your name
    You can't access the content of the VIP area UNTIL you have reached 100 posts and have been a membership for at least 60 days.:p

    So "what is the point?" you might be asking... some people don't like to be carrying the "newbie" title by itself and "Jr. VIP" does sound better for the ego:D

    If you are in the forum everyday (almost), contributing with posts and being of some help for others
    you will be able to reach the minimum quote with no problem and soon you'll be able to have access to content that is private to a smaller group of members.

    For those who don't mind the title but still can for the time being afford the fee, being a donor is a great choice.
    Somewhat you feel you are helping to maintain the forum up and running due to your contribution.:crackhead

    Not really.

    That section has easily added 5 figures to my income both directly and indirectly, so I reckon 97 bucks wasn't too bad ;)

    They have a button in there (VIP section) that saves a panda every time you press it. But if you press it too many times a Mexican dies (so I've been told).

    JR Vip, Exec Vip, and Staff sections are all mostly filled with different cooking recipes from top level members. This was inspired by Essential Clix in early 2008. Most of us enjoy cooking and barbecuing more than this. Most of the marketing stuff is right here.

    100 dollars isn't worth any more whether or not you have 100 posts :)

    If you're willing to pay for it, why the hell not

    By accident you can end up making more money with some of the knowledge in there as well as the relationships you can develop.

    The ROI on the 97 bucks can be very good!

    Think of the $97 as a, "Thank you BHW for putting together this great website that I spend so much time on and learn how to make money on my own. I am giving you $97 not because of the title but because I want to give back."

    PS - If anyone asks, I am holding out on donating/becoming a Jr VIP until HaRRo puts up the $150 Donor+JrVIP option. It should be up soon (per PM from him). If you are interested in this option, post your comment here to PM him so the he realizes there is a demand for it.

    Thanks!
