Hanford,

Can I just pay you the $24/year amount without taking the pledge. I mean hey, I'm Bong!

(I've said for a long-time now we need to pay some sort of dues as it isn't cheap to run this show)

You don't have to ask me twice! The oath quickly allayed my initial star-bellied sneeches concerns. I get the star, without the snobbery! Huzzah!

This ride ain't free, even though it's been free for me. I'm happy to help pay for gas!

Thanks to everyone who has signed up so far!

Bong,

This isn't just about helping out Tiki Central financially, it's about making it a better place. If you want to paypal me 24 bucks I'll happily take it. But if you want to be a Grand Member, you have to abide by the Code of Conduct.

~Hanford

I'm just glad to be able to kick in something to help out ... at less than the cost of a Mystery Drink! Such a deal!

Cheers Hanford!

Without hesitation I'm going to contribute, but I think we lose something by automatically, for a few bucks, designating someone/anyone "Grand Member".

With our current system of designations, it takes a bit of loyalty to work your way up the luau food chain from Tiki Centralite to Tiki Socialite to Honorable Tiki Contributor, to the godhead of SPECIAL AGENT (but not if you're a mere mortal).

But now, even Sqwaker or mAdTiKi gets instant cult status by paypal'ing a small amount.

It's kinda like someone buying every single sacred tiki item there could be with a single transaction (including tattoos and musical ability!).

I remember once some professor in school was making some point or other, and he said "if everyone is rich (or poor) in a society, then no one is rich (or poor) in a society". If everyone is a 'Grand Member' than no one is a 'Grand Member'

(allright, start the Bong bashing)

I agree with that. I just passed 1000 posts and am proud to have achieved my title of Honorable Tiki Contributor. I would like to give but can we keep our "earned" member status as well?

I do agree with Bong on this. Even being one of the early members, it did take some time to work up to my Tiki Socialite status. Perhaps keeping the old designations and adding the star to those who are grand members is a good compromise?

Of course, I value Tiki Central greatly and am more than happy to contribute. I will do do forthwith.
