The rank offers a few perks besides the sexy color and icon; you're able to delete your own posts, increase PM limits, view hidden forums, participate in team-planning, as well as other forum based powers. For more complete information, see the subscription tab.

    III. Information: Donating
    Spoiler

    The easiest way to donate is to simply click the large "Donate" button on our Header. This will take you to a Paypal screen where you can insert the desired amount of money to donate.

    Please be aware that Paypal DOES charge fees for this type of transaction; it won't cost you anything, but instead of receiving $5.00 we might receive $4.50 (the difference is more significant for larger amounts) . In order to waive the fee (this method requires a paypal account with money already in it), you can send your donation as a GIFT to us. Please note that you do NOT use the donation button on our forums if using this method.

    IV. Information: Subscriptions
    Spoiler

    The subscription system is a way for us to encourage donating by offering some benefits back to the community. I hope that this will encourage members who otherwise wouldn't donate anything to contribute just a bit to help out with our costs. Now, to our major donors - this is not something that will replace donations. If you wish to donate an amount larger than what the subscription plans cost, or an amount inbetween pricing tiers, we still accept (and greatly encourage) regular donations through the "Donate" button.

    Plan Pricing
  • Time: Cost [ratio]
    1 Month: $2.99 [$2.99 per Month]
    3 Months: $7.49 [$2.49 per Month]
    6 Months: $11.99 [$1.99 per Month]
    1 Year: $19.99 [$1.66 per Month]

    Note: Paypal has fees (charged to us, not the buyer) that will take off about $0.42 per month from the original price.

    We're still working out the pricing tiers. If you think this is too expensive (or too cheap), post your thoughts! Keep in mind that the idea is to have the prices as efficient as possible without turning people away. The main point of this is to raise money to stay operational; not to sell a forum product with ridiculously low prices.



    V. Frequently Asked Questions
    Spoiler

    No, you do NOT have to donate to TRR to be a member of our community. Donating is simply highly... HIGHLY appreciated since it helps keep the clan operating.

    Do I still get "Exemplary/Exclusive Member" if I donate, but don't do it through the subscription system?
    Yes, our administrators will manually add you to the new group after the payment is received.

    Do you need Paypal or a credit card?
    As of right now, since we do everything through Paypal, yes (however, the subscription system may allow credit cards THROUGH Paypal, but shouldn't require a Paypal account). I'd be open to alternative methods should they be suggested.

ok so lets say we donated money for anouther clan members membership on runescape. Would it count towards our personal money count (mine is 5) since its helping someone in the clan, but not technically the whole clan? :P

Is there a way to turn cash from my wallet into a donation? There isn't a bank that I have an account with in the State I reside at the moment (transitioning from a move) and I have all this money and no means to donate D:

It depends. How long until you open a new bank account? It might be best to set whatever you intend to donate aside until you open it up. Do you still have an old account? I guess you could also send a check to the account that Paypal's linked to.How'd you donate before?

I transferred money from my Bank Account / Debit card to my Paypal and then donated. I could get a reloadable Walmart Card and then use that to send money to my Paypal. Would that work?
