Perhaps some of you have noticed that your name has changed color. Harry has been going through the membership lists and updating the status. I was horrified to learn that Stak only has 376 PAID Subscribers?

I'm curious why more folks don't have Stak Membership on their Christmas list of priorities.....

Obviously, I find the site worth the hassle and my $20. Sincere THANK YOU to those who have joined me.

Thanks
Beth

Same here!!! I found this site with all the info worth at least a being a sponsor.. Most out there are a lot smarter than me so it is worth that much in just the company I keep!!! Hopefully some of it I will retain.

I have in the past and will do again tonight. Harry, would you consider a "life" membership?

I had used this site many times before sending in to be a subscriber, that has to be one of the best things I have ever done! I haven't renewed my subscription to GEM because I find more interesting items on here than I ever found in the NEW GEM! THANKS for creating such a great site Harry!

I am a paying subscriber.

I have learned A LOT here.

My main complaint is the image size and restrictions on photos.

I have thought many times about starting a thread on this very subject. Darn cheap entertainment. Thank you Beth, and thank you for taking your time to be a moderator!

We need these threads once in a while to remind us to get caught up!

There are realities not reflected in the poll. Such as being out of work, bad economy, financial issues, health or family costs, etc, etc. They may have let EE and GEM go as well.

I am not complaining, doing fine myself, just saying some folks might not need it rubbed in their faces. Christmas was mentioned. The tone does not come across very Christmas like to me.

The photo benefit is wonderful.

I am fine with the flashing Ads, because it is for a good cause.

As for the edits, I take pride in my posting and yet being human I make mistakes. Does it bother Harry or the memberhsip that the forum looks messy? Beyond the typos, I also have the occasional brain fart. I can always post a retraction in that case. That all detracts from the website.

I have some limited success with the classifieds. There might be an opportunity to collect a fee? Perhaps, when you change the status to sold, you are asked/remined to remit a buck via what ever payment method available. Click this button to print a paper bill or another button for an electronic option?

Glad to be a sponsor. IMHO, ' Stak is the best thing on the internet. Without a doubt, it is the best thing to happen to the old iron hobbies since Reverend Elmer Ritzman started what became Iron Men Album. Thanks, Harry
