  • Want to help support KFN financially? Now you can.

    As of March 19, 2012, members who want to help support KFN financially can do so with a Paid Subscription. This is completely voluntary, and membership in KFN continues to be free. But for those who find KFN to be a resource worth supporting, and want to help, now you can.

    When you are logged in, click on your username (top right), then click on User Settings, then on Subscriptions. We have seven subscription levels:

    Active Supporter.........($ 12.00 USD per year)

    Sustaining Supporter.....($ 24.00 USD per year)

    Professional Supporter...($ 36.00 USD per year)

    Bronze Supporter.........($ 48.00 USD per year)

    Silver Supporter.........($ 60.00 USD per year)

    Gold Supporter...........($120.00 USD per year)

    Endowment Supporter......($250.00 USD per year)


    KFN isn't providing any premiums "at this time" for paid subscriptions other than our sincerest gratitude and the custom Rank Badge shown above, which will appear above your earned post count KFN icons.

    Hosting a forum isn't without costs, and those costs have to be paid. Hosting and Licensing costs take the lions share, but other expense exist as well.

    We have no idea how many members will want to help support KFN financially by purchasing a Paid Subscription. But every subscription purchased is gratefully received.

    We are sensitive to our members, and recognized that many don't want any sort of 'in your face' campaigns in KFN. Paid Subscriptions satisfies these concerns.

    Funds received from Paid Subscriptions go entirely to the running and maintenance of Kubuntu Forums.

    Thank you.

      Thanks.

      Case 2: You end up with two Paid Subscriptions, and two Badges.
      OK, so this takes care of the case where someone wishes to now and then (possibly at random) make ANY donation (a donation that is a multiple of $12 (or is $250)). Multiple badges may appear and disappear on schedule, running concurrently until each expires.

      And the other thing, the automatic renewal of subscriptions is NOT in effect (there are no asterisks as mentioned in that footnote, but I thought it strange it would be mentioned in the footnote) -- correct? not in effect? and not in effect, in any case, without permission?

      Validity periods marked with a * indicate that this subscription is recurring. After the initial subscription period is complete, the subscription will automatically be renewed with a new charge.

      Correct. None of our Paid Subscriptions are "recurring". The footnote is simply a default message, there to let members KNOW that UNLESS a Paid Subscription level is FLAGGED with an *, it is a SELF EXPIRING subscription.

      The 'multiples of 12' holds true up to the $60.00 "Silver Supporter" level ($12, $24, $36, $48, $60). Then $120 (Gold) and $250 (Endowment). There is one more level, but it hasn't been enabled: "Patron" ($500.00)

      Thanks. (Never hurts to post in this thread--it does draw attention, in lieu of advertising.)

  • What is Kubuntu Forums? Why Should I Join?
    by Snowhog
    What is Kubuntu Forums?

    We are, of course, a Kubuntu Linux Support Forum. But we are also much more.

    Established 2005-07-17, Kubuntu Forums was the idea made real by our host, Open Source. Little did he know then, that his idea would grow into the active community of Kubuntu Linux enthusiasts it has become. Why was KFN started? Why do people join? Why do they stay? Who are we?

    Why was KFN started? Open Source's inaugural post was short, direct, and to the point: ...
