Exclamation Become a Premium Member! Additional Perks & Exclusive Membership! Help Support HT!

Hello All,

Recently, and after the positive feedback located here, Donation Membership, Hawaii Talks has setup a Premium Membership for those of you that decided to donate to support Hawaii Talks.

To subscribe, simply go to User CP - Edit Options - Paid Subscriptions

These "Premium Memberships" are for supporters of Hawaii Talks with perks & benefits unavailable to the normal member. These donations are used ONLY to pay for server, maintenance & future upgrade fees. If there are remaining funds left over, they will be put back into the forum through special community events, HT parties, giveaways, and any unique situations that may warrant it.

This is not to make HT a "Pay Site", rather it is intended to give a large "Thank You!" to those of you that have, will, and continue to donate in support of the forum.

There are three levels of Premium Membership, and they are categorized by length of subscription. Our subscription payment system is verified and secure through Paypal, but we will accept cash or checks if you prefer. They can be setup for one time only, or recurring.
  • - Gold - 1 Year or More Subscription - Current Rate - $20 per year.
  • - Silver - 6 Month Subscription - Current Rate - $10 per 6 months.
  • - Bronze - 1 Month Subscription - Current Rate - $4 per month.

All Gold (1-Year) Subscriptions will receive an official HawaiiTalks T-Shirt as seen below:

Each subscription is given access to the same features as the other levels, but the period of time is shorter. The following features are added for Premium Level Members:

There will be even more Premium Member features added as time goes on, so this is more of a "current" list of perks and abilities given to our donaters.

Upon expiration of your Premium Membership, your account will be returned to it's Pre-Subscription state. You will not lose any data, only the abilities. For example, If your PM box has 500 messages stored then you will be unable to send or receive PMs untill you have deleted the appropriate amount. However, you will not lose anything upon the revert. For those of you that would still like to donate and remain anonymous, but do not care to have Premium Memberships, you may still do that. If you want to donate, have the Membership, but remain anonymous, please indicate this in a PM to me.

Hawaii Talks wants to thank you for support. Without you, this community is nothing and we just want to say thanks. We hope that these additional perks will warrant and provide you with a little extra satisfaction for donating to the forum.

If you have any comments or suggestions, or have problems with the subscription service, please Contact Us! or post within the Forum News, Rules & Discussion section.

Mahalo, and thanks for your support!

REMEMBER...this is only offered as a THANK YOU for those of you that do want to support HT. It is NOT a requirement, nor shall it EVER be a requirement to post here. Do not ever feel like you need to donate to be a part of our community. Joining our community is reason enough for all of us at HT to thank you for your membership. We sincerely appreciate your membership...that's enough.

-The Hawaii Talks Staff
