    Its probably me being a bit stu'pid but I hadn't realised I've not renewed my Site Supporter subscription. I presume I've either missed the reminder or it went in my Spam box. I also don't really pay to much attention to the banner on my profile nor clearly haven't thought that I've only paid once since originally joining a few years ago.

    I think, and I'm sure others will agree, this forum is a 'cut above' and whilst I tend to be a sporadic and certainly not a prolific poster I recognise the quality and also that it takes time, effort and I'm sure expense to run and maintain the forum. In view of this I am more than happy to pay the modest annual subscription if for no other reason as recognition and/or a small reward for the site owner.

    The specific reason for raising this is that there might be others on this forum who may be in the same position or not realise there is a facility to be a site supporter and who may also wish to show their appreciation.

    As a suggestion it could be worth reviewing the renewal process or posting a periodic reminder ?

    @Phil Thanks for your kind words, genuinely much appreciated. I can reassure you that every single penny generated goes into the running and development of the site, I don't pocket any of it although if it turns into an absolute monster I might consider it! Just kidding, I just think that everyone contributes for a decent site rather than lining my pocket and it should stay that way.

    Apologies for the non-reminder, I think I know what's happened there so I'll try and fix it over the next few days. The site continues to grow and I've noticed quite a lot of new members joining recently as word gets about which I think is great. Our USP is that we're not like PH or any other motoring website for that matter, there's a uniqueness to BMWLand and long may it stay that way.

    @edthefed It could be that you're using an old PayPal email address, can you PM me the one you're using?

    Cheers chaps.
