Support Worldwide Beekeeping Forum
« on: February 22, 2017, 01:16:42 pm »
Worldwide Beekeeping is a member supported forum. We incur costs associated with the operation and maintenance of the website and a 'free' forum for all to benefit from and want to keep it 'free'.  We have avoided the "in your face" annoying ads as a revenue source so far and hope to continue to.  We rely on the generosity of our members to help us pay those bills and keep our forum alive and growing strong. Member support provides our forum the financial resources to do so.  Without financial support we would not have this great forum and community.  Help us keep it going!

If you feel that the forum has been beneficial to you,  we hope you will consider making a contribution.

While all contributions towards the upkeep and maintenance of the forum are voluntary, and greatly appreciated, the team has discussed someway of publicly acknowledging those that do. With that in mind we have decided to offer those that choose to make a financial contribution two levels of support that will be displayed with their profile.

There is no obligation whatsoever and it is completely optional. Those wishing to instead contribute by continuing to share information, friendship, and knowledge on the forum are also appreciated.

Two types of contributors

Supporter - $25/year
  • Forum Supporter added to title in profile (above avatar)
  • Profile star bar -
  • PM Mailbox size increased to 30
Sponsor - $75/year
  • Forum Sponsor added to title in profile (above avatar)
  • Profile star bar -
  • PM Mailbox size increased to 50
  • Ad on front page of forum (optional)


Ad requirements and templates can be found here.  Please PM with Admin if you need help.

I added it for you,  however by not using the subscribe feature you will not get a reminder email when it expires, it will just disappear.
