The cost of a burger/fries and drink at a burger joint is now about $7-8... come on, the subscription is two lunches!

It needs to be easy as life Aid, easy like a direct link to PayPal or something. I tried to sign up but it was too much and got to to sign up but it was too much and got too confusing for me to sign up but it was too much and got too confusing for me.

Joe,

 

Here's the easiest way I know:

 

PayPal the $13.95 subscription to greg@slotblog.net and mark it 'Sub' in the notes section.

 

I can't make it any easier than that...

It's done but it wants way too much information and it should ask about a auto reup every year not just add it.

 

I think more people would sign up if it were just a click onto PayPal and not asking all of your info.

 

That is why I aborted on my last attempt.

Joe,

 

That e-commerce function is an off-the-shelf package meant for many, many different industries, most of whom will be shipping you something so name and address is necessary. Using that software also automates everything, so I don't have to do it manually.

 

Anyone who finds the process onerous, intrusive, or complicated is welcome to use the procedure I mentioned in post #28 above.

You could try prohibiting non subscribers from posting pictures. Heck, Photobucket wants $400.

If you are a subscriber, the software underlying Slotblog sends you an email notifying you it is time to renew, assuming you haven't changed your email address. And also assuming you elected to be a continuing subscriber when you signed up.

If you are a subscriber, you will see that legend beneath your avatar at the left on any post you make.

And you can always PM me regarding your status.

As far as I remember once you subscribe with PayPal it auto-renews every year. At least that's what happened last year. :)

All this begs the question:
 
Why don't more people who frequently post to this blog pony up the measily $13.95 annual subscription to help pay for this invaluable source of slot car information. Well worth the $1.16 a month.....

All the cost for a year's subscription is a $1 more then a JK Retro Hawk..

 

Oh forgot with Mass sales tax added on it's only .25 cents more.  :)

I like to point out that a Slotblog sub costs less than 4 cents a day.

 

If it's not worth that to you... well, that's pretty depressing to me! LOL.
