    Well, I never managed to join that 3000-post club that Keegs was going on about, but now I'm going to be a V.I.P. on Patsfans.com. The good news is that I get to go into the V.I.P. lounge (the bad news, is that I'm going to have to share with PatsNUTME).

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, look at Ian's sticky at the top of the page and sign up! I reckon that at $18 a year, it still works out at under 5c an hour. What value!

    (Feel free to use this thread to shame others into paying up.)

    Yeah, I'm with you, I decided to sign as soon as I saw it. Heck, the distraction and extra information (I'm in a dead zone for good info here in SoFla) alone have been worth the $18 in the offseason. Now I just have to wait for that email telling me what to do after I hit "pay" :confused:

    This can give us troll relief during the coming season. Well, those of you who don't have to read the troll stuff that is.:mad:

    PS. Do any of you guys want me to re-post the Ladies Lounge threads in the V.I.P? What's that Ian? Not on your life? OK, sorry.

    First of all I really appreciate all the support from those who have donated, it means a lot. I had locked the original thread because I didn't want to make a big deal out of this, since I didn't want anyone to feel obligated. But after reading all these posts I wanted to post a quick "Thank You" to all of you...I really don't even know what to say.

    Regarding your account, please check first and see if your PM limit has increased to 1,000. If that has happened, you've been upgraded. I also changed it where VIP Member is listed below your username (a little extra status :cool:) But You can also change the custom user title below your name to whatever you want (within reason of course :) )

    You'll also be able to go into your Profile and increase your avatar by uploading a new one (it will be larger than all the others), as well as your signature image which has been increased in size. Not a huge deal, but for those who want to use those hopefully this adds a little to your unique personality here at the site.

    Next, I'm working on the VIP lounge which will hopefully be done by tomorrow night. It will be a nice little safe haven from Trolls, etc. and will be another place to hang out. The NFL News Room will be available this week, so hopefully you'll all find that useful as well. There are also new arcade games coming, and there will be some that will be available to the people who were kind enough to donate.

    So lots in the works, and thank you all so much for helping out. It honestly really means a lot, and I'll do my best to continue trying to make it better. But please always feel free to PM me with any suggestions!

    Thanks again, - Ian

    Oooh--I didn't see we'd be able to make our own tags. I kinda like VIP member, but I can see where a custom one would be cool. Thanks Ian.

    Oh, yes -- I can see it now! There's going to be a sticky thread with the title "Champagne and the drinking thereof", isn't there? :D

    Believe me, this means a lot to Ian. The chat room software should be great, especially for those who like me to give play-by-play for the preseason games. In fact, we as mods were told not to donate :D, but judging by the response Ian has already gotten, it won't even be needed.

    Great job guys, you don't know how much you are helping out Ian and the site. ;)
