Hey all,
I'm the happy new owner of a 2018 Crimson colored Limited OB.
LOVE this ride. Makes me so happy to have made this decision based on:
Function
Safety
Durability
and
Comfort for both driver and passenger

So my hubby tells me all about this great site and forum...

What I can't find is information on the levels of membership.Free is free, but if I pay for annual or lifetime, what does that get me? Anyone know?

what does it get you?

lifetime : a little gold label under your name.

annul: a little silver label under your name.

and a faceless corporation some of your money,...for zero reason whatsoever.

I have been on for like 4.5 years now. never paid. :nerd:

It does get you ZERO adds and faster response. The little gold label. Although many do not share my view. I feel it was the best $40 I ever spent. I have been around for a while as well. I have utilized this sight for repair advice, a cottage business conduit and even some food therapy.

The gold label also gets you a little decal, which I never got.

Faceless corporation.

I had to pay to play on LGT, My investment over here has been more enjoyable over the years. It does take some effort to keep all fun.

I run free ad blockers,...can't use much of the internet without them.

(not just here).

although, I find a nice stupid nag screen popping up now on "jalopnik, ...yahoo, accuweather,... whining about ad blocking).

LGT.com is not a autoguide / vertical scope forum,

looks like something that the one person admin known as SBT, runs quaintly out of his home.
(rounding up member bucks, and ad revenue,....WITHOUT clogging the site with ads).

you are a little guy, selling a few craft things like at a community yard sale
barely making enough money to buy some frozen vegetables, to go next to your hot dogs.

NOT. Discount Tire Direct, subaru online parts = the dealer in Hicksville, NY,
stealth hitches...

..those are "vendors" on autoguide/verticalscope....and you should not define yourself as such, EVER.

Very true, in spite of my Bravado regarding mu stuff ... I'm not getting $$$.

I spend as much developing new products.

I don't think it gets you much of anything. I kicked in $40 because I spent a few weeks scouring this forum for info to help me make a purchase decision, and to prepare me with knowledge about potential issues should I make the purchase. Felt like I got well more than $40 value from it, so I kicked in (even though we all "kick in" in the forms of traffic / ad serving / etc.)

Eagleeye's point is a different view, but that's fine, too. As a frequent forum user, sometimes I kick-in voluntary amounts and sometimes I don't -- depends on the forum and the knowledge / services each provides.

And, even though I was off forum for a while (had a 16 Forester), I came back with no loss of membership. Thanks.
