We have now activated a vendor subscription service here on the Authentic Campaigner. In order for vendors, or anyone for that matter, to advertise commercially on the forums they will have to be subscribers and meet the authenticity requirements of the forum. This is done by making application to John Wickett. Do not send any money until you hear back from John that you are approved, and do not advertise your business unless you are an Approved Vendor.
The fee will be $100 for a year's subscription and Approved Vendor Subscribers will be able to advertise on the forums, use their company logo as an Avatar, have access to a private folder for discussion as well as list their company name and contact information in their signature area.
This is something that most of our Approved Vendors have been anxious to support and now we are activating it. Private sales will continue as normal (free) but if you're wanting to sell commercially you'll have to subscribe to the service.
To subscribe to the service, you'll find a "Paid Subscriptions" link in your User CP. Don't subscribe to the service unless you know you're Approved for membership. It should be tied to a PayPal account so you can use MC/VS/AX, etc. If you wish to pay with a check or money order, please send me an email and I'll get you an address.
If there are any problems getting signed up, please be patient and we'll work to get them resolved as quickly as possible.
We'll use these dollars to pay for the website and therefore be much less reliant on donations.
