Ok, so years ago, I donated - It was a One time donation, that unlocked "Donator privileges" that I didn't really mind.
A while ago, I donated again, Just what I had in my Paypal account. Mostly because I'd just like to see this site stick around, and I've gotten a lot of useful information, and wanted to pay it back.
I just got an e-mail, saying that "Your access to the paid subscription "AquariumAdvice.com Supporting Member ($15.02 Annually Recurring)" is about to expire."
I never signed up for an annually recurring, and found the entire thing to be one big forced money grab. If anything, this has done nothing but get my back up to the idea of donating, when I'd donate freely when I had the money.
I'll donate again, when I feel I would like to donate again. and don't really give a darn about the perks. But telling me that my subscription is going to expire, when really, I just was donating some money, kinda irks me. Not entirely sure why... but it does!
When I first donated, the donator badge was a permenant item that stuck with you forever. Now it can be stripped away?
I suppose you're only as good as your last "donation" (aka Subscription payment)
