    Hi,

    Looks like the link to become a supporting member is still not working, have they taken away this feature? Is there another way to become a supporting member?

    Hopefully moderators can help.

    Thank you.

    How did you go about becoming a moderator? Might it be a similar process?

    It sends me to a not functioning paypal page and always has. I've been trying to become a supporting member since last year. I tried sending email to the "contact us" link but never got a reply.

    Here's the deal
    We have been mods since before the merger, the buy out, and the switch over.
    Uh that's been about 8 or 9 years.
    I'm not sure we even know who owns us now lol
    We keep the forum ticking over and remove spam attacks but that's all we really know about.
    There were 3 other forums in the same buy out and as far as I can tell they are completely defunct and even the mods are gone on a couple.
    I spent a couple months trying to get a hold of someone, anyone, on DGI, it's completely blind/nonresponsive.
    I think we're a relic.

    Sounds like the forum has been abandoned.
    Thank you Mods for hanging in there

    Wow, that's too bad. Lets just hope we don't have some catastrophic technical difficulty no one can fix.:confused:

    The web hosting site is in charge of that part and apparently the rent is getting paid so, I think it will be fine. After all Goat Wisdom is still up and running and they haven't had administration for @15 years.

    Well said goathiker.

    We seem to be on our own, which is sad. :(

    So is there any way I can support this orphan website?
    Is there a need?

    That's so tough. Is there any way to take it over? To have someone purchase it from whoever currently owns it?

    I have reached out to have the Paypal page fixed, I am not sure what the issue is.

    Thank you for reporting this issue.

    On a different topic... Anyone know how to update your info on your profile? Just curious... A lot of my info isn’t valid anymore.

    Click on your profile, then profile page, at the top of the page, you will see your picture and name, click on that, it will drop down all categories you can go to to change things.

    Hope this helps.
