    Motoring Alliance now has an uprated membership program with lots of extras for subscribers. First off, I feel it is important to note that none of the current access levels or features are going away. The Motoring Alliance Supporting Member Program simply offers more. More Gallery space, more image space, more PM's, more badges, just lots more of more.

    Why is there a Membership Program?

    Quite simply, it costs a bit to run this site and I'd rather offer a membership program than fill every blank space with ads.

    What do we get?

    Table of Benefits

    Avatar - Increased image size.

    Gallery Space - Increase in total space used.

    Garage Space- Greater number of Garage slots.

    Album Pictures - Upload more pictures to albums, no restriction on hot linking to other sites.

    Private Messages - Lots more, you'll never have to clean out that PM Box.

    M/A Stickers - 2 of them.

    [IMGR]http://www.motoringalliance.com/forums/images/1yrbadge.jpg[/IMGR]Grill Badge - Magnetic badge designed by Johngo. Every year you are member a new badge is sent to you with special badges at the 5 and 10 year mark.

    Custom User Title - Change the Stage number to whatever text you desire (within the bounds of the site guidelines).

    Recognition - Badge next to your name that shows the world you support Motoring Alliance.

    User Name in a different Color - All can see that you support Motoring Alliance with your name in a lovely Burnt Orange.

    "Supporting Member since 201#" designation - I'm still trying to figure out the code to do this, but I will!

    Top Gear in HD - Enjoy Top Gear downloads in both 720p and 1080i.

    [email protected] email address - What more need to be said about this unheard of perk.

    Discounts on M/A items - Tee Shirts, badges and other swag at discounted rates.

    Become a Member today!

    Please note there are 3 options.
    Lifetime - One time cost Member for life of the site. -$125.00
    Annual - NON-Recurring - $25.00
    Annual Recurring - Bills you every year at $25.00 - I've tried to make it very clear during the sign-up and checkout process that this is recurring.

    Thanks for your support of Motoring Alliance.

    That's a pretty valid question.

    Yes, one can still be banned, it is not a license to be an idiot and flaunt the fairly liberal Member Policy.

    Umm, no, this is different. The badge is for upgraded memberships and it will ship as soon as I have them from Cooper Flags.

    For some of our members (and I am not naming names) that would be a recurring fee. :lol:

    Quick question, so the difference between, recurring and not recurring would be that if one does the non recurring you will have to initiate the yearly fee yourself?
