iRV2 Supporters
 
iRV2 is pleased to announce the ability for members to show their support for our community by upgrading your account to be an "iRV2 Supporter". Click here to upgrade. By upgrading you will benefit from more features such as:

- One large Plak-R sized iRV2 Sticker (includes free shipping)
- Space for 25,000 private messages
- Larger Avatar: 120 x 120
- More profile album photos allowed
- Add a photo in your signature (468x60 pixels)
- More space for customized signatures.
- Ability to purchase branded merchandise at our cost
- A warm fuzzy feeling for helping support our community.
- More features and reasons to upgrade will be announced in the future...

Keep in mind, our community will remain free for all members.
This is an optional upgrade and not required for participation.

As this program matures iRV2 is hoping to work deals with vendors to offer discounts to upgraded members as well. iRV2 hopes that in the long run we will be able to create a significant amount of value that it will be a no brainer to go ahead and support our community by upgrading. For example if you can get 10% off your order at a certain vendor which will save you $100 it's more then worth it to spend the $15.03 to upgrade and get your personal coupon code. The program is still young so please be patient as we work to add new products and perks to this offering. If you don't see the value in upgrading at this time just wait and hopefully we will be able to create enough value that will entice you to upgrade as the program matures.

At this time the we have not ordered any branded merchandise but we plan to get t-shirts, hats and other high quality apparel embossed with our logo in the near future. Once this merchandise is available all iRV2 supporters will be able to purchase them at our cost with zero mark up. The merchandise will also be available to non-supporters but with a typical retail mark up.

iRV2 plans to give-a-way a significant amount of account upgrades to members who make significant contributions to the forums, photo gallery, and refer other RVers to our site. To launch the program we have upgraded a considerable amount of accounts based on tenure, post count, and some other undisclosed metrics used in an algorithm as a way of saying 'thank you' to these members for their significant contributions to the community to date.

I will post a more detailed overview of this program along with a comparison of the features & the e-commerce page where merchandise can be ordered in the near future.

The upgrade is processed through PayPal and is an annual upgrade.

The introductory cost of the Supporting Member upgrade is a modest $15.03/year. If you spend just 30 minutes a week on our community that equates to only $.58 per hour!

Keep in mind, our community will remain free for all members.

I've already set up my signature photo. It was the iRV2 header for a while. A shot looking down on the paved RV section of the Salt Creek Recreation Area, Olympic Peninsula, Washinton. Like having that :)

Thanks for the upgrade. I have 2 questions.

1. is the upgrade something we have to go to a particular website and and do an install from there or is it something that has already been done for us?

2. I would like to get the stickers but am not sure if they will be automatically sent out or will we have to request them?

Thanks again.
