    You get a yellow name (like Daddy W), and have the option of an avatar and signature and various other perks.

    Pretty soon, I'd think. Like within a day. I'm not sure if there's some elaborate hack in the system that sees you contribution and assigns you a new status, or if Greg does it manually. If the latter, it depends on how often Greg comes online and such, but I'd guess that this shouldn't take longer than a day.

    Why do you ask ?

    Haha, you got screwed.


    Really though, you should see if your payment went through.. because it seems you should be a member by now.

    Sometimes there is a glitch. PM Greg Bernhardt and give him the details and he will manually fix it. When I did it, it was instantaneous.

    Thanks for contributing! :approve:

    If one paid electronically, as in credit card or Paypal, it should be quick. If one paid by mail, then it happens when the check arrives and the fee is verified, or so I would imagine.

    I think mine took a few days - but that was last year, some time, IIRC.

    I'd say definitely PM Greg (unless you paid by check, then give it time to arrive and clear). I think when I first contributed, it was almost instantaneous. It shouldn't take a week. Greg might have to manually upgrade you if there was a glitch.

    Anyone that mails in a payment should send Greg a PM to let him know it's coming.

    It was paypal and it appears to be on my card statement.
    I'm going to double check to be absolutely without a shadow of a doubt that that payment is the right one and then I shall pm Greg with my sorrows :smile:

    thanks very much :wink:

    Well, I never had a 'card statement', whatever that is, but I also went by PayPal. It took almost a week to go through. It was worth the wait, though.

    When I paid I had wondered how long it may take then I logged back on right after paying and I was already upgraded.
    Yomamma, maybe you should get a job mowing lawns or delivering news papers. :biggrin:

    Kia, I'm trying to figure out what your avatar is (terrible they have to be so tiny). Is that a cat swimming with a rat? :bugeye: Nifty!

    Now you need a signature too! :biggrin:
     
  20. Jul 18, 2005 #19
    looks like the cat is saving the rat?

    hahaha a cat with a rodent (rat I think - too big to be a mouse) laying on the floor! :rofl: :rofl:

    Now that sig, hmmmmmmmmmmm well, none of my usual sigs would be applicable :rolleyes:

    Just the same as I don't think "Deviant Cyber Mastiff" would be a fitting custom title...... :eek:
