    What does donating member status get you?

    I already donated. I like this place. But I'm curious what the details are. Anyone?

    Thanks.

    You get to go to where all the cool kids hang out.

    There are some off topic areas that are for donating members.

    The idea is that we, the members, support HF. And there are a few perks to say 'Thanks' to those that do -

    - Access to the Off-topic forums
    - Greatly expanded PM limit
    - Ability to disable banners
    - Donating Member title
    - Knowledge that you are supporting HF

    The on-topic hammock info on HF is free and open to anyone, regardless.

    Ok, you convinced me. I just bit the bullet. No small feat for a nonconformant like myself.
