    I paid my $25 via paypal back on Dec 23rd to continue my "Supporting Addict" status and the blue banner was under my name but I just noticed that it has gone missing. What gives?

    I let mine lapse until it’s clearer what Carbon is going to do with this site.

    My supporting membership expires 2.24.19. I don't see my supporting member status reflected either.

    Okay, now it is appearing. Perhaps a system glitch.

    I'm going to make a suggestion as one who spent a lot of time at another site that was also sold to a media company. Remove the blurb below.

    Many folks who arrive here, like I did, decide they want to be "part of something" as I did and want to contribute to help keep the lights on.

    To me, having this (below) on the main page suggests one thing, when in reality our page views are being sold to advertisers as a "for profit" business. I don't expect this site, or others like it to be charity cases, but it seems less than straightforward the way it is being billed below, until we pay our annual dues, receive our receipt, and learn the site is owned by a media company, rather than by a guy who wanted to start an on-line community for firearm enthusiasts.

    Impressive response from our Mods. Nice work.

    In my case it was my error. Hope WC 145 gets squared away.

    Thanks, guys.

    I don't think any active forum, in any hobby, is owned by "some guy" anymore. The costs are to high with server space, cyber-security concerns, dealing with moderators, grumpy members and maintaining a business that is open 24/7.

    I won't be a supporting addict any further cause Carbon Media (or some other huge site consolidator) doesn't need my money but I still LOVE this site and it's members :)

    I think there are still some privately held forums out there. To my knowledge, a car forum I hang out at with 140,000 members is privately owned and basically run with the owner and two mods. I modded an extremely active gun forum that was privately owned with 20,000 members and modded by a dozen guys (all volunteers) who really fostered and cared about the on-line community. It was sold two years ago to the same parent that owns Carbon Media and has become nothing more than a buy, sell, trade venue. Zero community. I will leave it at that. Hopefully addicts won't go that way.

    I just paid up to be a supporting member last week. But truthfully I don’t know what that banner would look like. Scaramouche tried to school me on how to support a couple of times but his descriptions didn’t show up on my phone. But when I went on the laptop I got it done. I don’t so much care about the banner, just enjoy the forum and the people here. So maybe I’m out 25 bucks. I’ve spent more on dummer stuff. Hell I smoked cigarettes, reefer and ditch thistle for 30 years.
