Default Paid Subscription Expiry Notice

I got the following email from the forum. You better believe I'm renewing. I have a collection of smokers, rubs, tools, etc., but the subscription to this place has been the best investment I have made when it comes to BBQ - and even meeting some great people.

If you are not a subscribing member, I urge you to consider it. This site costs money to run. I believe you can subscribe for as little as $25/year.

________________________________

This is an automated message sent by the BBQ Brethren Forum Software.

Your access to the paid subscription "50$ Yearly Subscription" in the BBQ Brethren Forum is about to expire.

To renew this subscription you can visit http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/payments.php

If you choose not to renew your subscription, the extended features associated with the subscriptions will revert back to non-subscribers status. This includes extended features such as Custom Avatars, extended signatures, the enhanced search function, new post function and member searches, extended profiles, access to the social networking and more. You will still have full access to read and post in all our public forums.


Sweet blue to everyone
and thank you for helping to support our forum.

Just a single cooking class can cost you well over a hundred dollars. The Brethren is like a cooking UNIVERSITY available 24/7 without having to go to a classroom. I'd love to see you have a gold star and a bottle of Cabo Dan.

Guerry, I would too...it's well worth it - I can only do so much right now. Karen's medical bills are coming due and cancer isn't cheap. YET, I know that with the things I learn here, I'll be able to keep my customers happy and maybe keep winning a comp here and there - and that helps pay the bills.

Like I said, the subscription is a good investment...even for people who just want to cook better for their friends/family. OF course, I do have to put up with YOU! ;)

With y'all on the value of this place. After i got over the shock of realizing I really didn't know chit after years of cooking, it's been great!

I doubt if there's a bigger or better repository of outdoor cooking info anywhere in any form. The only catch is having to navigate these ^^^^^farkers to get to the info.

The info is free, folks. But the site upkeep isn't. The Admin still spends some $$$ to keep up here. He doesn't make any cash income off of this place.

However, most of that is going to keep the FCC off of our Woodpilin' arses.

The banana-thong-wearing-killer-of brisket has a good point. All the info IS free - although it is worth a small fortune, but to keep the hamsters running in their cages as to keep the lights on and the computers running, it takes some cash.

PLEASE GIVE....HELP FEED THE COMPUTER GENERATING HAMSTERS!!!!

I received my Subscription Expiry Notice yesterday. Hard to believe that it's been a year (tomorrow) since I subscribed to the Brethren. I got way more in value out of this site than what I spent on a subscription.

I didn't like that I only had one beer under my name so I've gladly upped my subscription to the Blue Star level for an extra beer. Maybe next year I can add some tequila!

Thanks Brethren for a great 1st year!

Actually Dan, once you pay, if you ever stop, all the knowledge that was implanted in your head is taken and those smokers become flower pots again.

I'd become a paying member if there were a onetime fee or lifetime membership....but an anual fee just seems too much. There are a BUNCH of members on here and can't see this site costing that much to run.

Don't get me wrong, LOVE the site there are some good cooks here and would like to see this place around for a long time but for average joe like me the cost isn't justified.

Wow, there is so much wrong with that statement I don't know where to start. How about here -- there is no cost. The information is always there. Send money once. Every one is better off for your contribution and you're not a, oh what's a nice name for freeloader. (A smile makes a snarky statement cute right?)

I think there's something wrong with both of your posts.

Camerman... namecalling isn't cool.

Kik... please realize that the costs are more than you think. A dedicated server with a commercial database can cost several hundred dollars per month, and I'm not even factoring in the costs associated with moderating and the various softwares it takes to interact. If you cannot afford to help, so be it. But please realize that without base support, the site will not continue.
