Upcoming changes in Club FTE memberships

Due to the support intensive nature of the current Club FTE system we will be replacing it with a new system.

The new system is "forum centric", meaning that its features are based on enhancing forum usage.

Some of the things it will offer:

1. Access to a members only section of the forums. Discussions of a more mature manner will be allowed here because it cannot be viewed by the public.

2. Storage for up to 250 private messages.

3. Send private messages to up to 5 users at a time, instead of the current 1 user limiter.

4. No ads in the forums and image galleries.

5. Image uploads/attachments directly into your posts, up to 10 megabytes per Club FTE member.

6. Supporter graphic next to your user name in each of your posts.

7. Viewable on the member list as a supporter.

8. Enhanced forum search.

9. Custom Profile picture.

10. Larger album sizes and more albums in the galleries.

11. Displayed signature in posts.

12. Access to a faster, member's only server. Never have to deal with slower server response time during peak hours.

13. Instant-on of all Club FTE privileges.

14. Automated renewal notification and turning off of privileges for expiring accounts.

15. Club FTE members will have priority support for any web site problems they are experiencing, suggestions, etc.

16. Yearly members will receive an FTE bumper sticker upon request.

17. Members-only coupon codes for MotorHaven, and possibly with other vendors we work deals out with.

18. FTE T-shirt with 3-year signup.

Payment options will be:

1. $2.25 monthly subscription
2. $15.99 yearly subscription
3. $45.99 3 year subscription

As always, joining Club FTE is optional --- the web site is still free.

We will be implementing these features over the next 2 weeks. Current Club FTE members will be grand-fathered with their web space and email addresses. However, when their grand-fathered membership expires and is renewed they will need to pay for the web space and email address separately from Club FTE payment.

Great Ken that is a big change and sure will make things better. Will the changes go automatically or will we have to change anything? Thanks again for continuously working to make the site better.

Im so shocked I dont know what to say, my jaw dropped and I uttered a WOW to no one in particular at 4 in the morning.

Ken Payne, you have flat out one of the best sites on the net.

I will be signing my wife up (zellian) on payday, not only because of these benefits, but because I/we really want to support something that has led to me owning 3 ford trucks, and wanting to put a ford motor in our old suburban (dont ask not to mention the friends weve made.

once AGAIN, thanks, wow is all I can say.

No need for current members to sign-up. You'll be moved over to the new system, as well as keeping the old system (for the remainder of your time on the old system).

From my 2nd post above:
"Current Club FTE members will be migrated over to the new system and will keep the old system as well for the remainder of their current paid subscription."

From my first post above:

Sometimes I get the impression people aren't reading what I type.

I read the post and understood that part, I guess I was meaning if there were any setting changes or the need to dump cookies and reload? Or activation like when we had to login to ClubFTE to make the connection with the forums work. Should have been more direct in my question. oops

Well, I read your first post but by the time I got to the bottom, my eyes were blurry and the drool was starting to annoy me. But thanks for reiterating.
Much appreciated
