The money will all be used to pay for the server that runs the forum and to improve the forum. It's become quite expensive, and by buying a VIP package, you help keep PFF up and running!
Of course you do get something for it in return. A little overview of what VIP members get:
- 10 PFF points for a new post in the VIP area, instead of the 0.50 in other parts of the forum
- The ability to change your own username in your User Control Panel, instead of having to ask a Head Moderator or Headmaster
- No flood limit - for normal members this is 30 seconds
- 500 PFF points at the start of each month
- First access to PFF news
- First access to the new Quibbler
- VIP-only forum games - with post count!
And of course what the VIPs themselves suggest! We're always open to feedback and our VIPs will be a big part of keeping the forum up and running, as ads only support us a tiny bit.
VIP access can be bought through paypal and credit card, or by sending the money to ProfessorHagrid through snail mail - contact him for more information on this. We are currently looking into the possibility of other payment methods as we realise not everyone has paypal or a credit card.
