2014-2015 Officer Club Drive!
By Paul Ernst on May 23, 2014
Yes, It’s that time of year again folks!
We have arrived at another year! This one has meaning too, this is our *5th* anniversary! Who would have thought this lowly little ’12 member’ site would last 5+ years? Well, our continued existence is directly tied to all of our great members, and especially our yearly Officer-level members. The purpose of this drive is to help offset some of the yearly costs associated with the website.
We are 100% corporate advertising free, and expect to remain that way as long as we can continue to do so!
As the level of support has increased, it has allowed us to provide more contests, giveaways, and services to our Officer-level members. We even got a custom figure made last year, thanks to the Officers! We have even bigger goals for 2014-2015, and all of you are essential in helping us to make it happen.
I mean, look at what we accomplished THIS year? We got all of these!
.. and more!
( is my fav) Imagine what can we accomplish in another year??
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!):
