So what's with the Patreon? Don't you already have donations?

Donations are for all our monthly costs. However, donations do not come close to covering the monthly bills here at vaping underground. When we upgraded to version 2.0 I really loved its look and feel. As I take more crazy ads out of the mix, the forum becomes even better and less cluttered. So I went and axed 1/2 the advertising on the forum. I'm sure some have noticed.

What would happen if we axed 95% of all the advertising? So, Patreon was born. As we get more patreons we can start chipping away at what we have remaining.

There is nothing special right now other than the badge until we get moving :). We started off at the lowest possible amount Patreon would allow us to charge. $3.00 a month.

Update: We know have a full ad-free experience you can buy for $5.95 a month as well. When you get this option and you get your badge, the forum will no longer display ads to you. This is particually great for those that use a cellphone or want a more eye pleasing experience.

$3.00 a month gets you the badge.
$5.95 a month gets you a complete ads free experience and the badge.

FOR THOSE THAT HAVE ALREADY JOINED PATREON:

Did you join the Vaping Underground Patreon? Let us know here and we will update your profile to reflect your badge. Unfortunately, there is no automatic way to do it. Just like one time donations, we have to do it manually. Once your badge is updated to your account you should have the "Vu Patreon" badge in red (like mine).

All members up to this point are grandfathered into ads free before it was an option.
