Smile Update on Tomb Raider Forums donator ranks and perks

Greetings.

To those of you who have purchased a donator rank, thank you very much. I hope you'll find the following changes to your liking.

1. Silver rank has been removed. All of you are on Gold anyways.
2. Gold rank no longer has an annual renewal. It will remain applied to your account for the lifetime of the forum.

That's all.

Here's the FAQ from the old thread, updated to reflect the new changes.

Quote:
What are donator ranks?

Donator ranks are a means to show your support for Tomb Raider Forums. They are purely voluntary and offer no advantage over a free account other than visual perks.

Why are you introducing donator ranks?

To help pay for our services and bandwidth.

How much does it cost?

Gold donator rank is £25 and will last the lifetime of the forum.

What benefits will I receive for purchasing a donator rank?

Donator ranks come with three vanity perks. Your name will be in bold and your username will change colour to reflect your donator rank. You will also receive a title based on which donator rank you purchased.

Can I choose my own custom title?

No. Your title will change to 'Gold Contributor' or you can opt out of any changes. Custom titles will remain an exclusive honour we award extraordinary members.

Are there any other fringe benefits for purchasing a donator rank?

No. It's purely a visual perk and a way to show your support for Tomb Raider Forums.

Can I purchase a donator rank and opt out of any/all perks? (i.e. keep current title, display name... etc)

Yes.

Can I purchase a donator rank and gift to another member?

Yes.

Do the forum Terms and Conditions still apply to donators?

Indeed they do.

How do I purchase a donator rank?
  • Log into your PayPal account
  • Click Send Money at the top of the page
  • Enter donations (at) tombraiderforums.com in recipient email field
  • Enter 25 GBP (British Pounds) in amount field
  • Press continue and review your donation
  • In the message field type Donation to Tomb Raider Forums and then enter your forum username (or the username you are buying the rank for)
  • You are responsible for any fees incurred
  • Finalise your donation

Is PayPal the only method of payment?

Yes, at this time.

When will my donator rank be applied to my account?


I will do my utmost to apply donator ranks as soon as possible, typically within a few hours of receipt during office hours (GMT). Please be sure to let me know if you wish to opt out of any visual perks at the payment stage of the application.

Terms

Donator ranks are non-refundable. Donator ranks are donations with added visual perks. Please obtain permission from bill payer prior to making a donation. All donations are collectively used to help pay for our services and bandwidth.

Is it possible to pay extra for a username change because that'd be cool.

Yeah, but then people won't recongnize you - which is why Justin hasn't allowed this. It is already difficult with people changing avatars

Oh, so THIS is how you become a gold contributor? I've always wondered how some of the members have their names in bold and in gold colour. I thought Gold Contributors were people who are more popular or something hehehe. Pardon my ignorance.

Nah the popular ones/well liked ones have custom titles.
I can't think of any off the top of my head, but you'll see them around.

Actually, the Great Chi has a custom title

I'd soooo like a custom title though. (who doesn't, right? ) I've seen some members with custom titles but I can't recall. What is Great Chi's title?

I think 'Specialist' would be a neat title. XD Too military?

The Great Chi's title is "The Inscrutable One" I'm fairly sure
