Bartertown Plus, 2012 edition

Postby Linrandir » Sun Jan 15, 2012 3:00 am

Hello all!

First, let me apologize for running so late on posting this. The latter half of 2011 was consumed with back surgery and recovery, and certain things fell off my radar.

That said, here's the official update for BT+ in 2012:

Same everything as before - $25 for the year, all features remain constant. However, Plarzoid is working on new features and little fun extras. If you've got an idea, post it in the BT+ forums and we'll look into it.
One change - please send electronic payments to me instead of Trademaster Adam. My paypal address is linrandir [at-sign] bartertown.com. As always, please forward a copy of your receipt to MagickalMemories [at-sign] aol.com and he'll get you added to the group in case you don't see the forum a day or two after you send me the payment.

I'll establish 14 FEB 2012 as the "deadline" by which we'll start pulling people out who haven't renewed or told us they intend to. Important note: If you joined in October 2011 - December 2011, I'll roll your BT+ membership over to 2012 because a number of people were delayed entry thanks to my not paying attention post-surgery.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks again for all your support!

How do we find out when we became BT+ members and/or how much longer we have till we need to renew?


Thx

You should be able to find that in your PayPal transaction history. That's probably the fastest and easiest way.
I can't guarantee I'd have kept everyone's emails, or I'd offer to check, myself.

Linrandir,

I just send you the payment for my BT Plus Renewal good sir! Thanks for getting this posted up and reminding us all!
Lower Rating? You ship first unless we agree otherwise regardless whether it's a sale or trade of miniatures. Feedback is there for a reason. This ISN'T Ebay, your Ebay Refs DON'T matter here, this is Bartertown! If your feedback is significantly lower, I expect you to ship first, even if I'm buying- Money carries greater risks than minis: I can't buy groceries with a box of Tac Marines! Offers are good for 24 Hours, otherwise void.

Feedback owed to me by: reks6798,

OK, I had to double check to make sure.

Bartertown Plus runs annually from January to January. So, if you want to renew please let me know by 14 FEB 2012; and in the Paypal PLEASE include the following:

Your REAL NAME and your BARTERTOWN USER NAME. If I don't have these things, I can't renew your membership.

Thanks again to everyone for all your support. FYI, the membership fees last year went to getting a new dedicated server (I hope everyone's noticed the better speed). :-)

Heh. Found mine. March 29th. :D Okay, I plan on renewing, I'll pay by V-Day. :D Just wanna sell a few more things to get the bones to do it. :) But nice to know it's Jan to Jan. I gotta pay up my bank on my two safety deposit boxes Feb 1st, so this all ties together nicely. LOL

More information will be forthcoming;
Good news on the BT+ front. We're adding a SLEW of new MODs that are only available to BT+ members. Some are already in use, and others are yet to come.

Watch for an update here, as things get ironed out.

MODs as in moderators to enforce rules or MODs as in changing dragons in Skyrim to my little ponies? If it's the latter, which ones are currently available other than specially colored names?

LOL
MODs, as in Modifying the system. : )

Currently, BT+ members receive:
Special title
4 day posting limit, instead of 7
Ability to use colored ad titles
"Quick Reply" ability at the bottom of the thread
Hover your mouse over an Ad title for a teaser of the first bit of the ad.

Coming are:
PM Blocking by members (You can list any member, except staff, and it will block them from PMing you)
Profile Guestbook (Guestbook for people who visit your profile)
Safe gamer Tag (You can integrate your Xbox live, PSN network, Steam profile info into your BT profile)
New Rank themes (not just trade related)
POSSIBLY a Karma system (like a "Thanks" system), if we can make sure it cannot be confused with References.
Multiple File Upload (When adding pics to threads, you can add more than one at a time).

There are others coming to the general user base, but these are BT+ only.

We're also always open to suggestions, if you know of a PHPBB MOD you'd like integrated.
