Member Status Question
What does the 'Platinum', 'Gold', and 'Silver' member status mean on the home page and why can I not seem to click on it?

Try to reply to the below thread...
https://rc.runryder.com/t829672p1/

A screen similar to the one below will pop up. After that it's a matter of picking a number and payment method.

Having finished contributing you will have to edit your post if you want it to saying anything other than the canned reply.

A one time change for a 365 day membership. Looking at the image above you see a credit applied when revisiting the sustaining membership page. This allows you to bump or recharge your membership back up to a full 365 days.

I want to say thanks to all the new contributing members.

By you. RR does not have access to your PayPal payment information. Again, this is a one-time payment to RR.

Part of me doesn't like the idea of "tiered" members. Personally, I want to be known as Bill the modeler. I'm not anybody other than a guy flying model helicopters. I've done it for a while and think there are times I can add to the conversation but I don't know how I feel about being a "Platinum" member.

What does it mean if someone contributes great posts but is a "wood" or "dirt" member?

Can I contribute and still be just Bill the modeler? Can we add a radio button to our profile that will hide our membership status - or would that undermine the goal of encouraging others to contribute? If everyone blocked their membership status, would anyone contribute?

If a member posts 20 times a week, will it matter if they are platinum x30 members or (new term) freeloaders?

I feel a paradigm shift.

Bill,
I’m with you in thinking that hiding the member status would probably defeat the purpose. However, I don’t like the teared system. Alternatively, identifying the member as simply “a contributor” would do ....

It shouldn’t be anyone’s business how much I contribute....

Okay here is a compromise for the better (see screenshot). I still want to show your membership status in your profile. Thanks to all for the feedback.

If you do that then there is really no compromise, IMHO
