A platinum membership.

Is this a trick question? :headscratch:

Your hair will stay thick and rich, your gut will vanish, your love-making stamina will improve, pheromones will trigger that make women swoon, your bank will begin to make errors in your favor, your boss will appreciate you like you deserve, kindly billionaire strangers will take you under their wing and teach you all their secrets, the GLOCK carbine will be named after you, your muscles will become chiselled and well-defined, your scruff if you choose not to shave will look manly instead of sloppy, your wife will find your snoring cute, your poop will smell like strawberries, your dog will never go potty inside ever again, your chosen candidate will win the next presidential election, and your car will get better gas mileage.

All that, and a snazzy title under your name and access to Glocktalk Blogs!

Well i'm just wondering what i'm supporting and what a membership entitles you to. I could not find anything, unless i'm not looking hard enough on this site. Just wondering. I'm intersted in being a member.

Did you trip over the post by Eric stating that he's not sure what each of the levels will bring yet but he'll let us know as soon as he comes up with it?

So, has the clock on membership officially started yet? It seems like it shouldn't start until we get the level appropriate benefits. Of course it's cool to get the labels early if it hasn't.

Ok. I remember reading about this months ago. In that time, I've deployed and I come back after being in country a month, and he still hasn't answered this question.

No offense, but this is silly. Absolutely silly. I won't be coming to this site anymore.

At the end of the week my ass. Ban me, please.

I'd kind of think that someone who's been "over there" for our country could do better than act like a whiny spoiled little girl over something he hasn't and doesn't even need to pay for if he does not want to, but...

Well,there's that "Marine" who threw a puppy off a cliff, and er... (thinking hard here...) ah, got it, General Wesley Clark. All those exceptions that prove the rule.

So I guess I'm not utterly shocked by you. Just a tad bit disappointed.

Tell ya what, I won't pretend to know whatever job it is you do over there, and you don't pretend to know enough IT to understand that a site the size of GT would be staffed full-time by anywhere from five to fifteen people, not counting data-center/hardware staff as opposed to just Eric and a handful of dedicated part-time volunteers.

I would just like to get acknowledged for having a membership. Whatever the $35.00 bought should have been my membership. Yes, it went through the bank, but I have yet to see it on the avitar. Oh well, I guess I just contributed to a great sight. At least with raffle tickets I have a chance to win something.

I don't need the recognition.

You can claim CLM #19 if it makes you feel better.

I get the benefits of the site regardless of what my avatar says.

That's what I paid for, not a title or perceived prestige.

Dang all I was asking is what benifits come with it. Like discounts on products, newsletters, etc. Would you pay for soemthing when you dont know what your getting? You dont throw money away for no reason do you? If so send me some money and I will print up a membership with photoshop and give you one. :supergrin:

All I did was ask a qeustion. I love this site but if this is the way you guys are going to treat people when they ask a simple question then whats the point. You are just running them off. Why does everything have to be a joke.

I just became disabled about a year ago from a major back injury that left me with limited movement in my legs and I cant work so I wanted to get involved with something and when I came on to this site I had a good feeling about learning more about the glock and the community of glocks and really enjoy this site. Alot of you guys have helped me with so much stuff like upgrades, the mechanism of the glock that I can work on my own guns. Its just really sad when I ask a simple question I get this.

Jake,

My post was not directed at you.

I want everyone to pay the lowest price they can for something and to not go into debt for anything.

My post was directed to glockess56.

If you're contributing to the site for recognition, you're doing it for the wrong reason, IMO

I contributed to the site because of the information I get a lot out of it.

I was going to subscribe to a paid membership today as well and have been searching for some answers. I am trying to figure out if there is any benefit to being a paid member, as well as what the difference in levels of membership are? For example, what are the benefits of a gold vs a silver membership? What benefits does a gold member have to upgrade to a platinum? Why should I choose platinum over silver? So far I haven't found any answers to those questions so I guess I'll hold onto my money until I can figure it out.

I'm not sure about the different levels, but getting membership helps to keep a good source of information readily available. I don't know about you but I don't want to see the same thing happen to Glocktalk as happend to Packing.org. Silver membership which is what I have gets you access to the casino and the arcade as well as supports the upkeep of the site so it's $40 well spent in my opinion.

Try not to take it too personal. Seriously. If you spend any time in GT, posting and exchanging thoughts & ideas, you're bound to get flamed on occasion. It comes with the territory. People have very strong beliefs and opinions when it comes to anything gun related. If your okay with that - post away. If not, might be better to just be a spectator.

Either way - welcome and good luck!

When you become a Moderator, you get $100,000 a year salary, secretary, private office, expense account, matching G18's, free ammo, and a Kawasaki ZX-14 (identical to Eric's).

:supergrin:

Salary is now indexed and adjusted on price of a barrel of crude jokes oil.


Oil is up 32% since this started, so Moderator salary is now down 32% to $0.11/hr.

But everything else is still inclusive.

Heartburn, headache, etc.

What Do You Want From Life
Spooner/Evans


What do you want from life
To kidnap an heiress
or threaten her with a knife?

What do you want from life
To get cable TV
and watch it every night?

There you sit
a lump in your chair
Where do you sleep
and what do you wear
when you're sleeping

What do you want from life?
An Indian guru
to show you the inner light?
What do you want from life
a meaningless love affair
with a girl that you met tonight?

How can you tell when you're doin' alright?
Does your bank account swell
While you're dreaming at night?
How do know when you're really in love?
Do violins play when you're touching the one
That you're loving?

What do you want from life?
Someone to love
and somebody that you can trust?
What do you want from life?
To try and be happy
while you do the nasty things you must?

Well, you can't have that, but if you're an American citizen you are entitled to:

a heated kidney shaped pool,

a microwave oven--don't watch the food cook,

a Dyna-Gym--I'll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home,

a king-size Titanic unsinkable Molly Brown waterbed with polybendum,

a foolproof plan and an airtight alibi,

real simulated Indian jewelry,

a Gucci shoetree,

a year's supply of antibiotics,

a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth
and Bob Dylan's new unlisted phone number,

a beautifully restored 3rd Reich swizzle stick,

Rosemary's baby,

a dream date in kneepads with Paul Williams,

a new Matador, a new mastodon,
a Maverick, a Mustang, a Montego,
a Merc Montclair, a Mark IV, a meteor,
a Mercedes, an MG, or a Malibu,
a Mort Moriarty, a Maserati, a Mac truck,
a Mazda, a new Monza, or a moped,
a Winnebago--Hell, a herd of Winnebago's we're giving 'em away,

or how about a McCulloch chainsaw,
a Las Vegas wedding,
a Mexican divorce,

a solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot,


or a baby's arm holding an apple.

I was looking into the benefits of a membership as well and was curious about the various levels. If the admin, senior members, moderators, etc. can't do anything but flame others for asking a simple *******ing question, screw it.

Jake, don't take the flames personally. Many people give funny answers because they lighten the mood and often make this a better place.

Many people get to be smart asses on the internet. On this or any other forum, those people flourish because they KNOW that there is no chance of having that smart ass handed to them as would be in "real life".

Yours is a question that many have asked.

Those of us who have been around a while consider Eric and the mods friends, and we don't really consider any benefit other than helping our buds pay the bills and keeping the site open.

For someone just finding the site, it IS unusual that there are no tangible benefits such as discounts, newsletters and such. Sometimes the old timers interpret "what do I get?" as a complaint.

Stick around. Eric is constantly working and I would not be surprised to find some "extras" continue to develop for those supporting the site financially as well as with their posts. At any rate, I give you free and complete permission to tell everyone that you are a member of the same forum as the legendary, the internet forum icon, the fount of all wisdom, the man with ALL the answers, the man truly responsible for making the internet great, the one guy that EVERYONE wants to be when they grow up (even if it means the ladies have to grow a beard and develop a beer belly).....Zoyter2. :supergrin:

It is a function of how many posts you make I believe. Make some posts and it goes away.
