IMPORTANT - Forum Changes Being Made

27 posts in this topic

Hey all, we are in the process of making some changes, mainly regarding the benefits of being a Supporting Member, and other things regarding signatures (many other sites limit the length of signatures and the number of lines of text, we think that's a good idea also), etc. We want to give you a heads up before we implement the changes.

So, here are some changes that will go into affect in a couple days:

When you donate your minimum $20 per year as a Supporting Member, you will be able to:

  • Access the Members Only Forums without passwords.
  • Post items in the For Sale Section.
  • Have no minimum of Personal Messages stored in your Inbox.
  • Have up to 4 lines of text in your signature.
  • Be able to send a Personal Message to someone even if they're Inbox is full.
  • $10 off any SDAR organized dualsport event entry.
  • Certain discounts on SDAR merchandise (hats, shirts, stickers, etc.)
  • Discounts at participating Motorcycle Shops.
  • Be able to use the "reputation" buttons, similar to "Likes".
  • Can read and post in the "Good Karma, Free Gear" section.
  • Can attach photos to posts, if they meet the specific attachment criteria.

If you are not a Supporting Member:

  • No access to Members Only Forums.
  • Can't post items in For Sale Section.
  • Have a maximum of 100 stored Personal Messages in your Inbox.
  • Have only 1 line of text in your signature and limited number of characters.
  • Won't be able to send someone a Personal Message if they're Inbox is full.
  • No discounts
  • Limited use of the "reputation" buttons.
  • Cannot see the "Good Karma, Free Gear" section.
  • Cannot attach photos to posts.

These are just some of the things that will change at the moment....if we think of anything else, we'll let you know.

Thanks to all of you for supporting SDAR and being an active part of our dualsport community.

Randy,

Is there a thread/list that people can check to see if they are paid up? 

Thanks

Pro Tip:  The "discounts" can be HUGE... Motoworld gave me 20% off $600 knee braces recently!!  Couldn't believe it - was so pumped about that.  

Thanks, Admins, for making this a great community.  Many have helped me with bike maintenance projects (thank you), and I've met my favorite douchebag moto bros off SDAR (you know who you are).  I'll be contributing.

I didn't see that the sight was "secure" to make a donation. Am I just paranoid?

I sent in my donation a few months ago, but never received any acknowledgment of receipt. Is there any way to verify?

Thanks all admin staff for keeping SDAR running.

Question on the "Reputation" feature: What is it exactly and why is it being introduced?

1 person likes this

Like I mentioned, Reputation is similar to "likes"....seems many people wanted that. You'll be able to click a little heart to "like" someone's post.

  • Cannot see the "Good Karma, Free Gear" section.

I think these 2 items negatively impact Supporting Members in addition to Non Supporting Members. It's denying Supporting Members the opportunity for good deals or even free gear that might originate from Non Supporting members.

The goal of any changes made will be to benefit the Supporting Members. We would like Supporting Members to have first shot at items offered to other members whether for sale or free. This has been suggested by many in the past. It also limits those who treat us like CL.

These changes have been made.

Supporting members no longer need to enter passwords for the Members Only Forum, and the above changes should be working.

PLEASE LOG OUT, then LOG BACK IN for these changes to take effect.

Thanks to all the supporting members for your donations...and thanks to all who for being part of our dualsport community !
