    After I become a supporter, how long does it take for it to start?
    It’s been several days and I would think it should be faster than that?????

    Send a PM to C3. He seems to have the handle on the cattle prod around here.

    You get access to more places around here. Running a forum ain't easy or free so you help there too.

    I like that supporter badge under my I.D. too, it shows you have an appreciation for this place.

    You get access to a few forums not open to "the public."

    If you like what's going on here and decide to stop by regularly....it's a little like chipping in a couple of bucks when you drink coffee at the club..even though the sign says "Free coffee."
    It's not really free.
    Help carry the weight by being a supporter.
    $19.95 a year isn't a budget buster.

    Like dawg says....the badge looks good under your name.

    As said- there are a very few categories here that in order to post there, you need to be a supporting member. Now, about becoming a supporting member- the Easy way- pony up $19.95 a year. However- For members that are Active Duty members of the Armed Forces- they are our guests- no charge (and we have had members here posting from Iraq and Afghanistan- and the hospital) You can also write and submit original firearm articles- those that accepted for electronic publishing here get a supporting membership. We have also used them to recognize persons that thru their personal efforts have aided and supported the FTF community in various ways.

    We ARE part of a business enterprise- Carbon Media- which is part of VerticalScope. Supporting members have fewer ads to deal with. Yep- we do lease out advertising- bandwidth is not free, and we have to have a way to keep the lights on, and pay the Admins our munificent remuneration- and keep the Admin Lounge staffed and supplied.

    It would just break our hearts if we had to lay Helga off.

    Absolutely NOT. She is expected to be treated politely and with dignity. She is a PROFESSIONAL.
