    Made my payment as a Donor a bit ago and then WHAM! Donor status shows up almost immediately! Will do my Jr. VIP buy after a few shekels come in tomorrow. Blackhatworld ROCKS!

    How come you didn't go straight to JRvip then?

    It is my understanding that Donor and Jr. VIP are separate issues, each with its own buy-in. Take a look at the 'Unleash Your Donor Status NOW!" link which appears at the top of the page. Didn't really coinsider the order in which I was doing things maybe because today has been sort of randomized and chaotic by external BS!

    I've PM'd HaRRo a few times about making a combo (Donor + JrVIP) package. Charge $150 for it.

    Benefits Include
    Different Name Color
    No waiting between searches
    Less waiting between posts/ IM replies.
    More message storage
    VIP access

    He said it was a good idea but I haven't seen it posted. I'm waiting on it before I jump in.

    Nice idea and could well work but I'll tell you why I put up for Donor Status. The $97 USD that I paid to become a Donor represents only a very small portion of the value of the things I have learned here, including how to NOT get banned, as I did a thirty day stretch for very impolitely running off at the keyboard! LOL! I harbor no ill will over that one as had I been a Mod I'd have probably banned my ass also!

    When I hit 100 content-filled posts, which was the reason I did not pay for Jr. VIP (Only had 34 at the time I becamea a Donor!) , I will pony up another $97 USD and be very happy about it! I know value when I see it and membership in BHW is one of the greatest values I have found on the interent.

    Jr. VIP also requires that you have been apart of this forum for at least 60 days (which you clearly have) and then 100 posts as well....

    I agree 100% that it is worth it. It is worth much more. But other things are also worth something.

    I get a lot of PM's as I'm sure many others who post a lot do. When I have to wait 30-seconds between replies, it becomes annoying and causes me to skip some replies. Is that fair to you? If I (a Donor + Jr VIP) have a good reputation, why do I have to wait?

    The option is another form of revenue and creates a new status that will hopefully encourage others to desire. Not so much of a status thing as much as it is encouraging community growth within BHW.

    Yeppers and I will achieve my 100 post level with legitimate content-filled posts; this one will not count in my book.

    The site owner and the Mods make the rules but the rules can be changed if there are good reasons. I suggest politely approaching the Mods, et. al. with your suggetions and see what shakes out. I find the Mods here to be very level-headed and open to suggestion, so have at it!

    Oh, yeah! As I wrote, Monday was sort of a day-long clusterfuck for me and the 100 post count is why I went for Donor first.

    DOH!

    I am old, really old by BHW standards so I claim a freebie on that one!

    As I mentioned - I have already done this and received a response from HaRRo.

    PS - Your posts in the Lounge does not increase your posts count.

    Yep; I know that but thanks for the reminder. The Lounge is kind of like bullshit conversations at the local coffee shop!

    You pay for status? LOL. Something is just not right with that.

    Makes me grin anyway.

    You get what you pay for in life and anywhere else, as you do it every day in one way or another anyway and there is nothing wrong with purchasing levels of access in an internet forum. You should try it yourself. You would like the results.

    You get Donor status anyway when you become Jnr VIP
