I remember many people saying they'd love to donate (or purchase a subscription) to the site, they just didn't know how, or they would have done it sooner if they knew how to. I know Scott has no desire to ask people for money, but let's face it, he (and the rest of the moderation team) put in a lot of time, and money to keep this website as awesome as it is. I've been meaning to update my "subscription," and finally got around to it today. I've attached a step-by-step walkthrough with pictures so everyone can easily donate if they want to. Every picture links to a full size version so you can see exactly what to click on, and where to go.

1. From the home page, click on "My Controls"
Attached File  S_Donate_1.jpg ( 71.85K ) Number of downloads: 2


2. Scroll down, and on the left hand side, under the "Options" heading, click on "Donate"
Attached File  S_Donate_2.jpg ( 61.75K ) Number of downloads: 0


3. You will then see the "Available Subscriptions." Click on any of the circles to the left of the subscription you choose.

4. Click on "Continue to select a payment method"

5. Paypal is the only payment method, so click the little circle to the left of Paypal.
Attached File  S_Donate_5.jpg ( 69.87K ) Number of downloads: 0


6. Click "Continue"
Attached File  S_Donate_6.jpg ( 69.8K ) Number of downloads: 0


7. Click on the box that says "Paypal Click Here to Pay" to go to Paypal

8. Enter your Paypal email addres and password, then click "Log In"

9. This is the "Review Your Payment" page. Check to make sure everything is right, then click "Pay Now"
Attached File  S_Donate_9.jpg ( 43.34K ) Number of downloads: 1


10. You're all done with Paypal (and really with donating,) click on the yellow "Return to SKBB Group" button, which will bring you back to Z71tahoe-suburban.com
Attached File  S_Donate_10.jpg ( 42.66K ) Number of downloads: 0


11. You should see "Your Current Subscription" on the bottom right.
Attached File  S_Donate_11.jpg ( 73.94K ) Number of downloads: 1


12. Now, if you want to feel good about yourself, click on your member name in the top left, which will take you to your profile
Attached File  S_Donate_12.jpg ( 72.4K ) Number of downloads: 0


13. Under your member name and avatar on the left, you should see "Member Group: Supporting Member"
Attached File  S_Donate_13.jpg ( 63.02K ) Number of downloads: 1


14. Anytime you post within the next year, you'll see "Group: Supporting Member" under your member name and avatar in the post. This is also retroactive to any post you've ever made.

15. I almost forgot, you also get a pink pin on the member map, to signify your Supporting Member status! (What up East coast, big support there!)

Thank you to everybody that has and will donate to Scott to keep this site running. notworthy.gif

Nice step by step write up Matt. thumbsup.png thankyousign.gif

I have been a supporting member for the last 2 years, and was a member for several years before that, and in those early years, I never even knew there was a way to donate! blink.gif . As Matt said, Scott is very low profile, and would never think of requesting any funds from us. Heck, he doesn't even make it a prominent link on the Z71 home page to donate!

So, Matts write-up is a good reminder to all of us that appreciate the efforts done here by the owner, Scott, and his "band of merry men" gathering.gif , the Mods. thumbsup.png

I "re-enlist" biggrin2.gif around my birthday, so pretty soon I'll be able to show Scott a little token of my appreciation for all of the good info, and comradery, that I've found here!

Bump. I personally feel I have vested time and have had lots of fun with new friends on here. I feel it is the least I could do to donate to this great site. I have PayPal, just waiting for my income tax return.

Scott, this really should be more visible for us. I bet I am not the only one that would like a noticable link to donate. I got this link off of Matt's signature by the way. wink.gif

Yep, my date for "re-enlistment" is March 18th thumbsup.png ...... This forum is one thing that I find to be a fantastic bargain, and I am glad to be able to help out.

Thanks for posting this Matt, I actually thought about posting a thread like this when I found it...but didn't know how Scott would feel if I "solicited" for him, lol.

The information (and entertainment) along with the insight I get here is WELL WORTH any donation I could give.

Thanks to all!

Edit: I didn't know I had a little pin! I'll have to go back and see if it's still available to put down.

Scott - I'm trying to "re-enlist", but it still says my subscription is "current. I first tried it yesterday, but noticed that my subscription was listed as valid until March 18th, so I waited until this morning to try again, March 19th, but I'm still listed as current, and unable to donate again. Is there something else that's needed to be done for me to "re-enlist". Do I just need to wait a little while until later in the day?

As I've said before, donating to this great forum is the best $$$ I've ever spent on my trucks. Thank you. notworthy.gif

It generally takes 24 hours after the expiration time/date based on the hour so it'll happen some time today maybe? Thanks for your support Gary!

A-OK, I just checked, and was able to re-enlist! thumbsup.png groupwave.gif

Scott - This is the very best "Mod money" I've ever spent on my trucks. You and this forum are A+ in my book! beerchug.gif notworthy.gif

Donated as well. Had a small amount of spare cash left over after all of the "non-denominational gift giving season" shopping I did for my family. tongue.gif

I was going to donate a $1,000 but it won't let me do it more than once a year. I guess I will just have to wait and hope the money is still there. rolleyes.gif
