Paid Memberships are now available via your Control Panel -> Paid Subscriptions. Memberships run for 12 months and we currently have Gold and Platinum available. Below is a table that outlines the differences between the membership levels. Pro Users can earn tweaks to their account based on their activity in the forums. These happen automatically and the criteria is being kept a secret. Please note that all forums rules are still to be obeyed. These memberships give you greater access to certain features of the forums only. They do not entitle you to any special treatment by the Planet Arkadia Staff or by the forum admins/moderators. It is very rare that we ban people, but please be aware that if you do get banned there is no refund.
