Gold Memberships are given to those who make contributions toward the cost of running this site. These memberships do expire after a period of time to ensure continued contributions (and to ensure the continued existence of the site).
The easiest way to make a donation is via PayPal. When you do this, your membership and expiry date are set immediately and you get access to the goodies with no delay.
£12 Donation = One-year Gold Membership
$50 Donation = five-year Gold Membership
£150 Donation = Life-time Gold Membership.
If you make a donation and you already have time left on your membership, the membership is extended by the appropriate period of time.
Finally, please keep in mind that this is a donation-based arrangement, not fee-based. We (The Dark Blues Forum) welcome donations in order to keep this website alive and running, and those donations are rewarded with a Gold Membership. However, we cannot make any promises or guarantees of any kind with regard to service levels, feature requests, or anything else.
All donations will only be used towards the running of this website, the server and software costs and nothing more.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support,
