    That's easy for you to say this on paper (PC/Mac screen) but to truly follow it is another thing.

    It is impossible to not hold some sort of favoritism towards some members on a PMB. I'm sure the other mods and you get into pissing matches, but do you give them "time outs?" I highly doubt it. It's part of working together and learning from each other, the same way as you can learn from the community.

    Actually we do hold them to the same standards.

    No, because we act like adults when we have disagreements and have open, productive discussions. People are chosen to be moderators for a reason, it's also why we keep our moderator ranks small and that helps ensure the highest level of quality in all the staff here.

    People with a history of receiving infractions are not chosen to be moderators.

    It's part of working together and learning from each other, the same way as you can learn from the community.
    I'm unsure of what this statement has to do with the rest of your statements.

    I do find it curious that almost all your posts since joining here are just to take digs or complain about the way things are done here.

    Actually they do hold them to the same standards. Problem is that people who pay their money often, for some inexplicable reason, expect some sort of special treatment. Silly folks thinking paying money should get them something.....

    I was having a rough week/time. I'm over that, and will be contributing to more discussions.

    I apologize for being such a Thorn.

    As a Mac convert of only 2.5 weeks (and counting) I can honestly say the you good folks here on mac-forums.com have made my transition from Windows a breeze. Although I've not posted much I've read lots and very useful indeed it has been .... thanks for that

    I've learned more on mac-forums that all other sources of info put together so had no hesitation in going 'premium' .... more to support the community than anything else.

    I've replaced my Laptop with a MacBook Pro, availed myself of an Apple offer to combine an iPod Touch alongside it (mostly to be used as a PDA) and, next year (when I get the hard earned spondoolas in place), I aim to replace my PC with an iMac desktop.

    Just thought I'd say both "hello" & "thanks".

    Stay happy, Dave B.

    Hey, daveb - glad we could be of help and thanks for supporting M-F!
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro. 2.66GHz. 8GB RAM. 256GB SSD. Hi-Res Antiglare Display
    Although I have been a Mac user since 2001, I recently acquired a new 17" MacBook Pro (utilized for work and pleasure) and am currently adjusting to Snow Leopard (coming from Tiger on a 15" PowerBook). I really don't join many open public forums but since my experiences over the years have been hit or miss on the (official?) Apple forum web pages, I thought I would search out a Mac forum that appealed to me.

    So with that said, I am happy to contribute to such a forum that will hopefully enhance my experiences here, now and in the future. Thank you.

    Gents,

    Any chance of paying the membership fee with Visa or Amex ( WITHOUT using Paypal )
    Asked the same question a year ago , maybe anything has changed in the mean time.

    I'm seriously contemplating becoming a paid member here. But only if:

    I don't get that little "I'm a premium member badge".
    I don't get access to the special premium members forum.

    In short I want to donate to the site because I can, and because I want to and for that warm fuzzy feeling inside telling me I did a good deed. I don't need a few carrots (or incentives) dangled infront of my face to tempt me one way or another. I know websites such as this have operating costs. But the poor who can't donate money should not feel like they are missing out on something special just cause they are poor.

    Gents,

    I have been wanting to pay the M-F membership and contribute, but ..... is it already possible to pay via Amex or Visa ?

    Don't have PayPal, nor do I want it based on the Belgian conditions.

    Cheers ... McBie
