    One of the changes I am doing is going with less advertising. This makes your browsing much faster, and allows you to view the site in it's finest form.

    SuperFan members won't see any advertisement banners.

    Well, I'm not sure I can pay the power bill here with just advertisements, and becoming a Superfan certain helps out! Its o much more than a hosting bill (software, add-on's etc..)

    With that all being said, I'm bringing back the "Superfan" donation package.

    To keep it simple, and affordable, I'm going to offer TWO levels of Superfans:

    ~ $5/month (gives you a change to help us out with the bills, but on a monthly basis. (This WILL re-new each month; to cancel go to Paypal Subscriptions)
    OR
    ~ $25/year. This will NOT renew, but covers you all year round!

    While it's not easy for everyone to do, not hard feelings. Those who can help me pay for the site, I say Thank You!

    What I can offer in return is right now:

    - Gallery. We have the Gallery which will allow you to upload pictures and graphics. You can host pictures, and use that URL for other sites, this site etc. I host my signature image there.
    - Piece of mind that you are helping with the power bill here.
    - Superfan Tag (Shows you help support DaBears.com!)
    - I am looking into other ways to thank you for donating.
    - Superfans will have any future bells and whistles that I bring to the site.

    *UPDATE*
    See these posts for newly added features for Superfans:

    If you have any questions please let me know. Before you ask, if you are here to troll, this is not for you! So if you are banned, understand, I can only refund your donation after 30 days from the transaction.

    Thanks Again!

    And since Rick didnt specify, for those wondering, you make payment through your PayPal account. Safe and secure.

    Thanks! Much appreciated!

    You also don't need to have a paypal account either.

    Check out the Gallery.. You can upload everyone's adopt-a-Bear there, and get the code etc..

    Finding the code is tougher, but the lower right corner of each picture gives you the code...

    I dunno...talking smack isnt really effective when your references are so vague that they need to be looked up in a dictionary.
