It’s that time of year again folks!
The Fighting 1:18th is having our annual “Officers Club” membership drive. The purpose of this drive is to help offset some of the yearly costs associated with the website. We are 100% advertising and sponsor free, and expect to remain that way as long as we can continue to!
We have always felt that accepting money from manufacturers or retailers would cheapen or influence some of the reporting and reviews that we do, so we decided we’d go at it alone and do things out way whether people liked it or not. It gives us the freedom to do what we want, and say what we think, and so can you!
This site is completely paid for by the staff, and from donations by our members.
These are the benefits you get for becoming an Officer (Besides the warm fuzzy feeling inside!):
+ Fighting 1:18th Dog Tags*
+ Additional Private Message Space from 100 -> 250
+ Additional file hosting space from 15M/20M to 30M
+ Unique color tag for name
+ Access to Officer’s Club Exclusive Forum
+ Access to exclusive contests + prizes for Officers
+ “Yournamehere@forums.fighting118th.com” personalized email address**
+ Our undying love and admiration for helping us be the last, best place to BS without BS!
+ New this year! Partner Link! If you have a blog for customs/fanfiction/dio stories or a small business you can have a link to your website in our partner section for easy access to your work. Dimensions for picture are 180×135. This is not for e-tailers! (Contact with any questions before joining)
* The dogtags are currently in the works, and will be mailed out as soon as we have them in hand (Hopefully before SDCC!).
** Send NSA a PM if you are interested in setting up the Email address.
As of right now, all the perks will be year-to-year donation dependent, so they will last until your subscription runs out. This MAY (and most likely some will) change during the course of the year.
The price this year is $32/year (The $2 is to help with damn Paypal charges!). You can access the form through this link: http://www.fighting118th.com/forum/payments.php
If you do not have Paypal, would like to donate MORE than $32, or would like to donate through regular mail, please send me a message on the forums.
The donation period is from May 25th, 2012 though August 25th, 2012.
Thank you everyone who helps us out!
** ALSO NOTE ** all existing Officer Club memberships will expire on July 1st of each year unless renewed, regardless of when you sign up.
For all this site does with the helping of customization and the help of selling and buying Joe and 1:18th merchandise. Plus the tips as to where things are and to how to get them. In my opinion it’s worth the price of mere 32 a year to help keep this amazing website going. Granted financial times are hard. This website helped me go through a personal tragedy and continues to help during current personal health issues. I felt compelled to return to the favor for help the site has given me. I am not telling you what to do or preach. However, becoming an officer was a proud day for me because I gave back to the website that helped me.Contemplate on becoming an Officer. The site needs the funding and without the funding, this awesome website wouldn’t exist. Thank You
