    A donation of 20 dollars or more gets you the following...and probably more
    1. a picture under your name
    2. the right to enter the talkbass live chat
    3. change the little title under your name
    4. I dunno if he's still doing it but you're automatically entered into a weekly drawing for a t-shirt

    Hey how come I signed up for this, gave TB 20 bucks, and I haven't got any of the cool stuff yet? How long does it take to kick in?

    I want to become a supporting member and almost did so until I remembered...I don't know what I want my avatar to be. I don't even know how to do it...I guess I will have to ask my computer/bass playing geek of a boyfriend:D

    How long ago did you send the payment?
     
  10. It takes a few weeks if you send your payment through snail mail.
     
  11. Just be patient, sometimes things fall through the cracks. I renewed my supporting membership a few months early and when my initial membership expired, it wasn't renewed. When made aware of it, Paul had it fixed in a matter of minutes. Once he's aware of the discrepancy, he'll take care of ya. :)
     
  12. I can't help you with choosing an avatar, but as far as the 'how' goes, just compress the image file (I think it's a 4 kb limit ???) and email it to Paul.

    Avatar requirements:
    -75 x 75 pixels
    -4 Kb

    any still image can be easily compressed down to 4kb... animated gifs are not that easy :/
     
  14. no s*** ! i sent some pot to Brokenangel 2 weeks ago.. and it still hasn't arrived.. me's starting to think the'm boys at customs are smoking my prime-grade grass now :(
     
  15. Your avatar creaps me out.

    ;)

    The sheer fact that you're asking that question tells me you don't need the product, Cap.:p
