Increased benefits & functionality
Premium Forum Users have all of the same forum benefits and privileges enjoyed by Power Wagon Advertiser magazine subscribers.
One privilege has to do with images. Most forums currently do not directly host images, instead requiring that you use a web based image hosting service. This is because hosting images has, as database size grows, ever increasing cost with regard to site operation. The forum site's database has grown considerably in size since these forums began, and as you might guess, we cannot run the site at a loss.
Power Wagon Advertiser magazine subscribers and Premium Forum Users can host images for free, as it is for those subscribers who pay for this site. Along with, of course, those generous forum users who choose to donate in support of the forums. Their kindness is greatly appreciated.
Users who are not magazine subscribers or premium users cannot have their images hosted by the site. They may, however, link to remotely hosted images, as is the method with some sites.
Other privileges enjoyed by the Subscriber and Premium User groups are avatars, the search function, emailing other users, as well as access to all archival forums and the subscriber forum, Inner Circle.
....for more information on archival forums, go here:
Those who support the forums should be rewarded for their dedication and loyalty. This is our way of providing that reward.
Those wishing to receive these added benefits and functions may subscribe to Power Wagon Advertiser magazine,

....or become Premium Forum Users. Registered users accomplish that via their UserCP [user control panel].
Click here to become a premium user.
Once you are inside the UserCP, on the left, down low, you will see a link called Paid Subscriptions.
You will be provided a drop-down where you may choose a time period of one or two years. Continuing on, you will be provided a mechanism with which you may use a credit card to make payment.
It is administered by Paypal, but you need not be a Paypal member and you need not use a Paypal account. You may use a conventional credit card.
They have it set up so that is not immediately obvious, for apparent reasons that they promote themselves, but there is a continue link just above the credit card company logos that allows you to use a regular credit card.
This is not a recurring charge. The option to set it up that way was offered, but I feel that people most prefer circumstances that do not renew charges. This means that when your benefits expire, you need to go back in and subscribe again with your credit card.

Why is it that the inside of old truck cabs smell so good?
