    You can renew your subscription anytime and it just adds right on to where the old subscription is supposed to end.

    For those who are on the fence about Supporting Memberships, I want you to know that Bob would love to add more features to the site such as Blogs, an IM service, an arcade and so many other cool things that would make the site run much smoother.

    Start 2009 the right way with a Supporting Memebership, it is the best $20.00 you will spend this year.

    I appreciate the kind words.

    I just reviewed our list of paid supporting members, and it was a bit disheartening.
    We have 1 Gold Key, and 15 Supporting members right now.
    1 paid sponsor.

    Cost of hosting goes up as we grow the site, and I don't like sticking my sites on cheap crappy discount gear. For one, I like them to be secure, and reliable.

    Cost of domain registrations has creeped up the last few years, and while that's pocket change, it's still a cost.

    Also, vBulletin recently raised their license rates, and ours is due in a couple weeks.

    Easiest thing for me to do is roll KT into MartialTalk and save the $1,500+ it costs each year to run. I'd rather not. I like having KT as a separate less moderated site than MT, and I think y'all do too.

    A Gold Key level sponsorship is only $9.95 a month. You get a bunch of perks with that, and you help me keep KT running. It's less than a couple of drinks at Starbucks.

    A Supporting Membership is $19.95 a year, less than most magazine subscriptions. We're cheaper than Black Belt Magazine and a whole lot more Kenpoy than them, and we have more readers too!

    I hate to ask, as I know, it's tight out there for everyone. But, I can use the help keeping the site running, growing, and expanding.

    Consider it...about to be done

    I can't paypal you the funds but I need to send a check to you for my personal project. I'll add an extra 19.95 to help keep the lights on here

    I just sent in a payment for 2009 membership it was a good deal. The cost is only $19.95 for 12 months. For you Anal Rententive types this means $1.6625 per month or 5.5 cents a day.

    JUST FYI lol.

    Hi Bob. I'm definitely a fan! Question, does the Gold Key Membership auto-renew? I know it says the 1 year does not, does the 2 month just auto-renew?

    Thanks!

    Hi Sean,
    The 2 month, 4 month and 6 month Gold Key memberships are auto-renewing (meaning the system will try to run a charge every 2/4/6 months through Paypal. The 12 month is not an auto renew.

    Great, thanks for the info, and thanks for all you've done for KenpoTalk. I'm in and out of here depending on how busy I am, but I ALWAYS gain something of value, and certainly I'm sure I've gained more than I've given. I just signed up for the Gold Key Membership to keep KenpoTalk its own entity, and since I'm not even a coffee drinker, I don't even have to give up my 2 cups a month

    Thanks!

    KenpoTalk is a tremendous resource, and I'm thankful it is available to the general public and those who cannot, at this time, afford or commit to a paid subscription.

    That said, subscription to a quality martial arts publication will cost more and provide far less than what you can receive daily on KenpoTalk. I'm glad to be a supporting member and enjoy the perks of being a paid member, and I would (and do) gladly support KT when compelled to choose between this site and subscribing to any other MA magazine or journal.
