      TO THOSE REGISTERING FOR MEMBERSHIP ON UJ   01/06/2018

      To the Guests who have decided to register for Membership. PLEASE add more info than just  "hunting" or "Upland hunting" or "birds" or "outdoors" or similar nebulous terms in the required INTERESTS field. Despite this Boards strong spam filtering it is not bullet proof, so Spam registrations do sneak through. I need an inkling that you are a warm blooded human being not a Spam Bot tagging onto key words. Thank you.

MEMBER GROUPS DONATIONS & PRIVILEGES

Recommended Posts

Brad Eden

Member Groups for 2018 will stay relatively the same. They will be 2018 Contributing Members, Members, and of course Administrators and Moderators. (If unsure of Member Group look on your Profile or under your Avatar area on Posts.)

 

CONTRIBUTING MEMBERS are Members who have donated yearly to help keep the board online, and/or just appreciate this upland discussion community. This Group has Extra Perks; mainly they enjoy the ability to Upload Images. This Board has very advanced Uploading capabilities and Members can browse and place, or drag and drop, multiple photos to post in Replies...from their computers, tablets and smart phones. They can also post photos and videos via photohost sites and YouTube URL's directly into posts or through the Insert Other Media function. This Board is completely mobile friendly without the need for an outsourced app. Currently each C-Member has 100mb's of storage space for uploads and the max size for uploaded images is 6mb. I have enabled an auto resizing function so large photos will load to a post and to data at a web friendly size. C-Member can manage and prune their own uploads to stay within max storage limit. The C-Member Group has unlimited editing time for posts, posting privileges on the Swap & Trade Forum and other advanced capabilities. With advanced capabilities and cost of Data for Uploads with the new Board, I have adjusted the minimum donation-to $25/year...see below.

 

The MEMBERS Group maintains most all Member functionality, as always, with the exception of the Photo Upload Feature and a few other perks for the C-Member group. (I expect I will need to purchase more Data as more Members donate to be in Contributing Member Group.) This Members Group can attach Photo and Video URL's, etc from photohost sites. Of note....to help decide whether to donate to the UJ Discussion Community; Upland Journal is not Facebook, with a multimillionaire owner, a stable of programmers and warehouses full of servers, but is a privately owned and maintained and moderated Discussion Forum that pays monthly for Hosting, Server, Bandwidth, email, and data storage.

 

All Groups enjoy many of the same features because all Members are important regardless of donations, ambassadorship, or post count.

 

A minimum donation of $25 or above places a Member in the Contributing Member Group with enhanced privileges for 1 year. (Donation amounts above the minimum are ultimately determined by the individual Member and the value they place on UJ.)

 

If any Member wishes to donate and be added to the Contributing Member Group I've added a Link to the Donation Page and address for checks below:
