    What does the M-F and the heart represent?
    Fairly new here and still learning. I see it but not often and don't know what it represents?

    Thank you,
    Don

    M-F = Mac-Forums..the name of the forums you are on..

    And by heart I take it you mean the logo..that's just a play on the Apple logo..

    Regards

    Its in the Paid up members logo under your name. In other words you are saying You <3 Heart M-F

    As a paid up member you get the different logo under your name

    And on that thanks for supporting M-F

    Cheers

    Now that you mention it...

    And what does membership get you? I suppose now someone is going to tell me to look at another page I've never noticed the link to...

    It's not pushed or advertised. It's not even a sticky. Here's the thread about it in the Community Announcements forum - link.

    The offering of a Premium Membership came about during a time when a few of the members (myself included and before I was a mod) asked for an option of a paid membership when the inline advertising began a few years ago. It's there for those that feel like giving back monetarily. For myself, the primary benefit is still the ad free skin that is made available.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    This is just my personal opinion...

    The paid up membership means I'm supporting Mac-Forums and perhaps ensuring they remain available for others to use. For what our forums offer in the way of help and advice, it's well worth the price of a paid up membership even if the ads were to remain.

    Nice to see you supporting MF don.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I agree 100%
    But the sad part is the benifits of becoming a paid member and having the M-F heart are linked. ie. Can't pay to have the benefits but keep the member tag. You can still pay though and keep the member tag but you get no member benefits.

    My point is you can't anonymously donate to M-F. Without forgoing the benefits of donating.

    I thought you looked pretty cute with the heart M-F badge; I don't see what the big deal is.

    I'm pretty sure if you just wanted to anonymously donate, iNET would be more than happy to take a check.

    But anonymity is not the point of the premium membership program.

    But you're making an assumption that the only way to donate would be to join the premium member program.

    That's not the case. If you really feel strongly about donating, I'm sure other means can be arranged.

    Not everything is so black and white
