    For quite some time I've been thinking. This website is AWESOME (DUH)!

    If I donate to this website, I know I'll be ad-free, but is that all I get? I just want to know what all features I could get by donating. I WILL be donating anyways, just want to know what kinda stuff to expect for this.



    Thanks!!

    If you're going to donate anyway, you'll soon find out what comes with it. Just click the button!

    But yes, the FAQ tells the story...you should be donating because you want to support the site and the community we have here.

    Wow. I probably will pay in the next few days.


    What title do you get for donating? Contributor or Demi-God?

    vniow forgot to mention that you can also choose the title Demi-Goddess. Maybe that's because you personally wouldn't care about that choice... or maybe because she didn't know about it. ;)

    Since others may come across this thread, it's worth clarifying: Paid subscribers may keep their current post-based title or have any one of these:
    macrumors Demi-God
    macrumors Demi-Goddess
    Contributor​
    Why isn't it "macrumors Contributor"? Nobody knows! It's just tradition.

    The bigger question might be why isn't it just "Demi-God" or "Demi-Goddess"

    Because the acquired omniscience is limited to the MR Universe, presumably.

    Glad to hear it nickelbackmac, becoming a contributor is the best possible way to spend $25. :D :)
