We have always felt that accepting money from the big 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 our 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!):
+ The Fighting 1:18th Exclusive “Wave 1” Challenge Coin*
+ Exclusive Officer Club rank badge
+ Additional Private Message Space from 100 -> 250
+ Additional file hosting space from 15M to 30M
+ Unique color for name
+ Access to the Officer’s Club Exclusive Forum
+ Access to the Officer’s Club Exclusive B/S/T & Sightings Access
+ Access to exclusive monthly contests + prizes only for Officers
+ First look at upcoming site exclusives and projects
+ 10% discount off merchandise at starwarsgeek’s shop for Officers!^
+ Our undying love and admiration for helping us be the last, best place to BS without BS!
+ And more…
As of right now, all the perks will be year-to-year donation dependent, so they will last until your subscription runs out.
* The Challenge Coins will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis.
^ See starwarsgeek for details on redeeming your discount.
