Introducing Premium Subscriptions!

submitted by CrazyJ on Sunday, July 29 at 12:09 PM

Borrowing a page from our friends at Ars Technica, we have decided to implement a voluntary subscription plan for Premium Subscriptions. We have considered a voluntary donation plan but maintaining an impartial atmosphere with relation to user benefits would be very difficult. We feel that our subscription plan designed with explicity defined perks is most beneficial to everyone. The subscription includes :

- A custom status name of your choosing.
- HTML posting access in all message areas (message board, story comments, calendar comments, private mail). This means big fonts and COLORS!

We would like to emphasize that the motivation for subscribing should be centered around supporting The Wolf Web, not just the aquisition of the special benefits. We take pride in providing an open forum for students to talk without the influence of authority or special interest. If we can support ourselves then we can keep it that way! Sign up or find more info here!

Allowing HTML in messages may not be the smartest idea...

We will not tolerate abuse...appropriate measures will be taken against subscribers who abuse HTML, or do not follow the posting guidelines for that matter. They will not receive any special consideration with regards to moderation.

uhhh we don't have access to the account numbers...paypal is a third party that manages the exchange of money.

it would be SOOO much easier for us to exclusively accept payments through PayPal. they are very reliable and they keep track of all of our records (for tax purposes ). all accounts are insured up to $100,000 against unauthorized transactions. these guys are good. they won't fuck up. they have over a million CC numbers in their database. if they WOULD fuck up, it would be major news. go here for more info on their security policies.
