Donate and become a VIP! (http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/misc.php?do=donate)

PaceAdvantage.com is now accepting member donations via PayPal. We will never require that a member donate, but thought it might be a good way for members to let us know they appreciate the man-hours and resources involved in keeping a website of this size running smoothly while expanding into the future.

Donations are tracked on a monthly basis and VIP status will expire after 30 days.

Current VIPs will enjoy the following benefits:


A snazzy VIP badge next to their user name!
Access to the VIP-only subforum!
Access to exclusive VIP-only Amazon.com Promo Codes - save money on selected products!
Exclusive handicapping contests with cash prizes (paid via PayPal) - only for VIPs!-Access to my proven Value Races & Horses selections!

Please allow 24-48 hours for your VIP-access to be granted after donation, although we'll strive to process it ASAP.

THANK YOU!

PS. You can donate anonymously if you wish. If you are not logged into the message board when you donate, your donation will be anonymous and you will not receive VIP status, but your generosity will be appreciated just the same!

I like this idea, very similar to Reddit gold. Would we be able to gift VIP status to other members? Is there a set dollar amount required to hit VIP status? Thanks for the site and all you do for it PA :ThmbUp:

No gifting I'm afraid. But the minimum donation is only $2, just like it used to be at the track...and that will be good enough to get you VIP.

Thanks!

You mean I'm not VIP already?? :eek:

Good idea, Mike - 'bout time you got a hand for all you for us.

Your check is in the mail!
No, really, it is!
Trust me! :D

Can it be a check in the mail rather than Paypal?

Sorry TR, going to keep it as simple and as automated as possible by using only PayPal for the time being.

Although if it's a big enough check, I might make an exception...;)

ANOTHER BIG SHOUT OUT TO

TAPE READER

Obviously, the current market downturn hasn't hit him very hard, given his gigantic show of support...thank you my man!

Just a word about the whole donate setup here...I see a number of you may have had something go awry when trying to donate, or were just testing the waters a bit on the PaceAdvantage side of things, which is perfectly fine.

But, unless you're actually logged into PayPal and finalize the payment, no donation goes through, even if you get a private message on here thanking you for your donation. That gets sent out the moment you decide on an amount and click the SUBMIT button here on PaceAdvantage...but the actual transaction isn't finalized until you complete the next step on PayPal...

So those of you who thought you actually donated and haven't received VIP status yet, check your PayPal accounts to make sure you actually made a payment.

There are about 11 of you out there who went through step 1 on this website, but never completed things on PayPal, and thus no donation was made.

I'm all caught up with things on my end, so if you thought you made a payment but haven't heard anything about VIP yet, please check your PayPal account. Odds are it never went through for whatever reason...if that's the case, just start over again at this link http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/misc.php?do=donate

Thanks, and sorry for any confusion or inconvenience...

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who made it possible to meet and beat our first monthly goal in a matter of HOURS...you guys and gals are, and have always been the best.

I think our first VIP handicapping contest will be during the holiday weekend...not sure whether it will be Saturday, Sunday or Monday yet...I want to have at least one contest a month, and maybe more.

I also want to play in these contests, but won't be eligible for any prize money...but if you win and you beat me in the process (which is bound to happen almost every time), you'll get a "Beat The Host" bonus...

Glad to see you finally do this. Now I just have to mail Tom some cash here in a bit so he can PayPal it to you for me. :D

Sir, what if we don't particularly care to use Paypal, but, would like to donate just the same. Can we send in a money order or something along those lines where the proceeds would be credited directly to you and your "one and only #1" in my estimation Pace Advantage Board. :)

Please let me know if something along these lines are in any way possible?

That reminds me.

When I was a “runner” we used to give our “clients” Christmas gifts that “fell off a truck.”

You don’t see OTB giving out gifts.

I'm going to add my Value Races & Horses selections to the VIP Forum as another perk, not that any of you seasoned VIP veterans need my help. :pound:

Come on JR, you know me and you've known me for a long time. Nothing ominous or odious about my request at all. It is totally straight forward. A M.O. is something easily tracked. To suggest otherwise is nothing short of silliness.

He was joking, at least that's how I took it...anyhoo...as I said to Tape Reader who I believe had the same question:

I am sorry Mike (PA) and JustRalph. I am certain that you are right and JR most certainly meant what he said to be in jest. :) I think the world of JR and of course your wonderful PA board. Once again, "my bad".
