Well up till now members subscribed because they wanted to support WIX and essentially sponsor what we do here. I appreciate all 18 of you that do so
However, there wasn't any real benefit for doing so except that warm and fuzzy feeling you get by supporting something you care about. I've been trying to figure out some way to reward subscribers for their support and today I am happy to announce that first benefit. It might not be much, and its still in beta while I work out the kinks, but it is probably the most requested feature. I have enabled attachments, which means you will be able to post pictures directly into your posts without having to go through a proxy like photobucket. I have attached a picture of an A-26 Invader as an example. Their are limits to the picture size and you can only add three pictures to a post but those are the initial restrictions. Once I get an idea of server usage I will consider raising the limits.
I can't open this up to everyone because with 5000+ members we would destroy the server and eat up all the available storage space. I figure that subscribers are helping to pay for the site and should get that benefit and the subsidize the additional costs.
So if you want the ability to put pictures directly into your posts then consider subscribing, it's voluntary and the basic subscription is only $2 a month, thats less than the costs of most magazine subscriptions. http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/donate.html
To the current subscribers, I will be adding the permissions to your account today, if tomorrow you still haven't seen the attachment option when you post messages let me know. I am going by my list and I don't have usernames recorded so I might miss you. Just drop me a PM and I'll get it sorted.
