donation and site feedback
Hello, regarding donations, I supported the St-owners.com forum when I was an avid ST1300 rider. Well, another year of support from me finally ran out and I received a friendly reminder, which in turn, made me think about this site. I tried to find a donation link here but after some hunting, I couldn't seem to find it. I used the link at the top of this thread, thinking it would lead me right to it but it took me to the main forum page. I did a word search on "donation" and came up with no hits. I'll eventually find it but I wanted to post here with some friendly feedback while it's fresh. St-owners.com site does a lot of things right, not that this site doesn't, just that Mellow, the site admin, really utilizes the forum tools that support a really good user experience. This forum and the ST forum appear to use the same forum framework/structure. I would guess a lot of their implementations could be taken advantage of here too. For instance, the way donations work. Even the user's badging changes just a little when a donation is made; the text for the username and in the avatar area, turn red, and included a small line reading, "Site supporter". Just that little thing, subtly reminds us that the site is supported by its members. I always took a little pride with my membership support and getting the badge-change brings awareness to the support cause. Just some friendly feedback. I went way off track here but I definitely recommend a visit and a little stay over at st-owners.com, take a look around--see the differences, see the similarities. They do have a great group of members, huge community, and I'll mention the high respect of the FJR troughout.
