FFS found it hidden in a dark corner :thumbup:

Is that the 'Digi' forum skin you're using?, if so, how did you get blue text instead of the annoying orange? I assume sorcery was involved :eh: :)

Thanks Mum, I did try that, but get a mix of blue & orange (see screenshot), exactly the same as plain ol' 'Digi'. 'Digi Orange' gives a mix of grey & orange. Think I have a lemon subscription :? ;)

Sadly i can't do a lot about where the button is displayed or not within different skins.

I use the default skin and it's clearly obvious in several places where to donate, subscribe is a bit harder. Maybe i need to look into a more obvious solution.

I'm certainly curious as to how i can entice more to subscribe though, we're not exactly overflowing with subscribers out of the 315 members we have about 20 subscribers. But i'm not sure i can 'give' a lot more within the forum options to entice people to join. There's only things like attachments, private message quota etc that i can give as a 'benefit'.

I reckon on TRC that less than half were paid up members. Too many folk like everything for free.

Does the blue username indicate subscribership? (I'm using the 'Elegance SteelBlue' theme for reference)

How many users are actually 'regulars' who post daily?

I'm prepared to bung a bit more in and a few others will too.
But it would feel more like a community if everybody did their bit.

They're people who are subscribers.

I don't know if it's a bit over pretentious etc though and whether being anonymous as to who is or isn't a subscriber.

Cant say im bothered either way but if we dont get a automatic message in a year it might be a good reminder as im sure you would notice the change in font
I think you will, but no idea until we get to a year in

I'd happily increase the subscription to say £30 a year and we all get a t-shirt. But maybe I could set that as a 2nd tier sub option as no one apart from me has wanted to buy any of them yet, despite the fact I think they look cool.
