joining TR

Sun May 05, 2019 8:38 pm

greetings:
I am trying to join TR and am finding it to
be very difficult for yours truly. My main
goal is to have a place to chat about hardware
and be a Patreon subscriber. I feel
like I have a new business after joining
Patreon. There has to be an easier way.

Join how?

And it's best not to publicize email addresses like that.

I thought joining a web site was still a thing. My goal here is to provide some support for what is left of our web. Patreon got me all confused. It happens easily :) Seems to me there are more roadblocks than open doors nowadays. Anyways, people like me need very simple but very specific instructions which I am not grasping. I just wanna help :)

Did you try the subscription page?

When I am logged in and viewing the main TR page, on the right are two different items related to subscriptions.

First, there is a text block that is | USERNAME | Subscribe | Log out |

Clicking "Subscribe" takes me to the subscription page.

Second, there is a graphic block that has the text "Support TR! Subscribe now" with two subscription medallions to its right, and what looks like a chipmunk holding a "Subscribe!" flag to the right of that. Clicking on this also takes me to the subscription page.


On the subscription page, you have to scroll down a little. The first page and a half (1440p) or page (4k) is detailing the various tiers and rewards for subscription. Below that is a section titled "Subscribe" that allows you to pick an amount with radio buttons ($10, 25, 100, 250, and Custom) and an autorenew checkbox. Select the amount you wish to contribute, whether you want it to autorenew annually, and then click the "Contribute!" button.

This will pop up a box allowing you to enter credit card information, with a "Contribute! $##.##" button at the bottom that validates CC information and then pops up a window that says "Congratulations, you are now a TR subscriber.

Thanks for your support!" with a "Close" button.

That should pretty much do it.

Hi Squito and Welcome to TR.

Things have been a bit slow on the site but the forums are always active and helpful.

Its good to support TR financially! (I guess I am overdue to renew.)

There is lots to learn and no doubt you have ideas to offer.
