    Becoming a supporting member

    I've been toying with the idea of becoming a supporting member for over a year now but I keep getting put off the idea by a few site niggles.

    1. I can only send pm's to 2 people at a time
    2. I never get reminders when a thread I have subscribed to is updated. No matter which browser I am using (IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, insert browser name here...
    3. I am deleted from thread subscriptions all the time for no reason
    4. I am not auto subscribed to a thread when I contribute

    My question is; will all of this be rectified when I become a contributing (as in paying) member or do I have to suffer this no matter what?

    I can deal with the annoyances while I am a contributing (as in verbally to threads) member but wouldn't be thrilled if I was paying for the privilege.

    Thanks in advance

    This is one of those big expenses you really need our advice on.

    If we get banned do we get the money back , or do we get special powers and cannot be banned, now that would be worth €40
