Subscription System now active


Recommended Posts

Well now it looks suspicious that I uploaded here today.  I hadn't checked the announcements this week, honest!

Will be subscribing as soon as I'm at my computer again 👍

System is way too generous to the free level I think, but you know the site activity better than I do.

I am all good for a voluntary subscription model to help the site and the community in general, but keep it wide open for the non subscribers as if they are limited, they will seek their content somewhere else and we all know where that is.

Sent money your way for website costs - my way of leading by example.  Others have been helpful to me, so more than happy to ensure that this resource is available when I need it.  Thank you.

UPDATE:
Looks like PayPal doesn't like subscriptions that do not require a renewal, IE Lifetime.  I've added Stripe as a payment processor.  If you have problems using  PayPal; please select Stripe.

I'll donate again to subscribe but I think you are overpaying for storage/traffic by a large amount, but I don't know your infrastructure or site traffic so will assume you are doing what needs to be done. You might want to consider limiting the size of what you are willing to host as some of these table packages are getting stupidly big with either bloated pup packs or ridiculously sized media files. You shouldn't have to host tables packages that people are too lazy to optimize the size of a bit.

I'm pretty sure with changes that I made during my last maintenance; things are under control.  Downloads/traffic have more than quadrupled from prior to VPinball shutdown and I only foresee this increasing over time.  Things here are just now getting started.  My server is extremely stable, CDN is very fast and downloads are really fast.  I think being able to provide this kind of service to members is worth it.

Strange. Wondering why my badge shows "VIP - Class". Have not seen that on any other profiles.


Because you were VIP before VIP was cool... I think that was from previous donation or you did something/helped someone in the forums.  I don't recall...

I subscribed as soon as I saw the option. This hobby has been like therapy for me, it's well worth any cost. From the contributions of the talented  members of this community, I was inspired to build a complete cabinet from scratch to try and get the best experience possible from these fantastic recreations (and original) tables. I also really enjoy the tinkering aspect of this hobby, from adding and/or tweaking hardware to learning to get things working just right, it keeps me physically and mentally agile (therapy part). Your work in preserving this legacy is greatly appreciated. The talent of the artists and programmers who utterly amaze me with their work, needs to be preserved as a hobby. I can't thank you and the talented members that make up this fantastic community enough.

Wow...a lot has changed since I've been away.  Work is killing me right now.  Sad to say...not a lot of time for pinball 🙁.  I think this is all great and I will definitely continue to support this site as much as can.  It would be extremely sad to lose another key VP site.  VPinball was bad enough!

 

Thanks @Dazz!!!
