    The lifetime premium membership is about to DIE!...... But don?t worry everyone with a current lifetime premium membership will retain their status. However from 1st October the option to purchase a lifetime premium membership will no longer exist. THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE As a reward for your donation you'll receive a lifetime of these benefits: LARGER PM box (Over 500 PM Capacity), the ability to use links in your signature (for advertising), and a Donor icon next to your username (The Ultimate Status Symbol!). Any future benefits for this position will be grandfathered into existing Lifetime Premium Members.
    Annual premium membership will remain as an option.

    BHW is going to collect big revenue from this as i am sure many people will subscribe to lifetime membership!

    That's bad. Lifetime membership although a little uncertain and least chosen by members was a good option for those who wish to contribute more than just 100 bucks. But it could be a change for the good :)



    It is for people who would like to donate but don't want to become Jr.VIP. The features and benefits are all the same except that donors don't have access to Jr.VIP forum.

    Thats the confusion - Why !!

    Also not able to post BST now (as per new rule)

    Why not become Jr VIP when you get access to another set of private forum ... I will not even think twice and will buy the lifetime membership at BHW (this forum has given me a lott) .. But then it will not be of use since i wont have Jr VIP facilities...

    I joined after a fellow web-developer and fellow gamer friend of mind showed me around this place. He has Jr. VIP. He even let me browse (only) from his account before I signed up.
    I mean this in the most respectful way possible: I hope more is added to the "member only" areas as I can't really see the difference in the two. In fact he told me that "there really isn't much of one" when I asked if I needed to become a Jr.VIP. Again, VERY RESPECTFUL and honest opinion of my own.

    EDIT: Maybe if I was planning on selling services here or something? The comment above is coming from a guy who pretty much only reads the forums.

    That 'letting you browse through' is against the rules and will get him banned.

    isn't it possible the option still remain active to the members who joined the forum before 1st october, but members who joined after 1st October they can see only new options of yearly memberships. Because most members like me will agree we are in process of making money from 0, will love to buy lifetime in future when i have the bucks.

    donations are made without expectations..

    jr vips buy the blue for either bst or to access the hidden forum.. but the donors just want to donate to the forum without expecting anything in return.

    I hope its clear now.
