So I don't have a Paypal accnt, nor do I wish to have one. But I've bought a few parts here through my cousins accnt. Can I pay for a membership the same way??

One thing that I have seen over and over on the BMXmuseum is members willing to tarnish the reputation of another member by leaving nasty feedback before trying to resolve a problem like a reasonable human being.

In my 6 plus years as a staff member , this pisses me off almost as much as a scammer.

you can edit the text but not the title.  You can ask a mod to help you with that.

R there bigger donations to have different member status. Like centurion and others? Thanks, Crue

Some of the titles under your name are simply how many posts.. for example, over 100 posts makes you a centurion member..GAry

No but you have to have 20 posts to buy in the new for sale section.

Does being a Pro Member allow me to see the "Buy it now" button on for sale items?

Re: Be a "Pro Member" to use For Sale/Swap Meet areas & Support the Site

First i wanna say BIG UPS to GAry for the museum & the Admins/Mods who maintain it!

I'm just an average Joe & it doesn't happen often but as a paid member, i feel i should not have to deal with ads playing their lil video commercials at the bottom of some pages. I understand that helps to support the museum, but if i'm not mistaken i remember other non-BMX sites mentioning no ads for paid members, so i believe it can be fixed. Thanks

You can edit the title with in the first 5 minutes then you have to ask a mod to change it after that.

Re: Be a "Pro Member" to use For Sale/Swap Meet areas & Support the Site

My first yearly-renewal is coming up in November i believe. I wanted to propose a suggestion that first-time renewals be at a lower price? Say $15? That would be cool & entice members to renew. Then second renewals go back up to the usual $20 cool

GAry, please consider. Thank you!
