    For Superfans, I've added the ability to add your own custom smilies.

    The only thing, is right now you can't just simply upload them. You have to get the URL from the internet, and the site will move them over here.

    It's very simple:

    1.PNG Then.......

    2.PNG

    Lastly, you can use them....

    3.PNG

    As always, thanks for supporting DaBears.com!!

    Regards,
    Rick

    I've updated the User Smilies.

    If you have any issues with features, please let me know.

    Thanks for mentioning it. For some reason the system didn't recognize it.

    All good! Thanks for helping the site.

    And, you should now be able to pick an "all time" bear for your "Adopt a Bear" player, instead of just a current Bear. May not make a difference to you, but....

    In order to get this site bumping again, I have updated the Superfan package.

    You can help out monthly ($5) or yearly ($25).

    Now, one MAJOR addition is with advertising. I have turned on advertising with all members (even I see them). However, Superfan's do NOT see them.

    Sorry I had to turn it back on, but traffic is increasing with our great new changes, and with that I need to upgrade to a better server. Add the hosting and software (including add-on's) and I'm almost at a cheap car note per month.

    The advertising won't pay for the site, but it will help augment what I take off my dinner table.

    So please do NOT use ad-blockers. If you do, you will see the header of the site asking for you to please disable it for DaBears.com.

    As always, thanks for supporting the site. I STILL have more changes coming!!

    Speaking of bells and whistles... I'd noticed the Bear Bucks thing and didn't really watch it very much, but recently I noticed that it gives you a Bear Buck for every post but then stops doing it. How exactly does the thing work and should I even care?

    Thanks!! This does help out. I foot the server bill out of my pocket. I don't keep an active cost sheet, but I'm guessing this site costs me over $1200 per year to run. So far since I've upgraded the site to a bad ass server, we've been running solid. Then there are the software costs (for add-ons and the software)

    Thanks again for helping me foot the bill here!

    Just hover over your name at the top of the screen, when the drop down menu shows up, select "Account Upgrades" and you can use Paypal to choose between the monthly sub or the whole year one.
