You can use a credit card with PayPal. They give you the option of opening an account with them or not.

Just follow the steps within PayPal, it's quite simple. They may ask for some details and your card details... If you have PayPal, you just login and click pay.

Ok many thanks, I will go for it then, I think to make a subscription to the forum is a good idea in this way, it is a brilliant forum and friendly and I will do it within the next 48 hours.

seems reasonable and as this is a very useful forum, worth some support. I constantly learn new stuff here particularly about DCC and ...............and................and.............

However, the 15 whatsits a year must refer to euros or perhaps some strange virtual or off planet currency.

I will assume it is euros.

Sorry for being a [email protected]

I've added a link to the Plus+ information from the Plus+ button on the users' profiles. I couldn't do this before, but as I have grown older and wiser, the force has grown stronger and my powers have increased. So for those seeking info on upgraded membership package, click the Plus+ button.

Hi Doug, I seem to be really inept at posting pictures. As you can see, I've joined the Members plus to try to make things easier but again I failed in my attempts to post pictures...it seems that I need step by step explanations about what proceedures to follow. I dont know the difference between URL or Jpeg or whatever, and I'm sure it's simple...there's something I'm missing somewhere but I dont know what it is!!!

This is what I do on ebay for example. When I'm selling something, There is a bit that says add pictures. I hit Browse and it goes straight into "my pictures" I then open the picture and the press the upload and it takes afew minutes but it's done...simples.
How is the proceedure different on here?

Thanks for your patience but I could do with some help....Cheers...jules

See here: http://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=25

As a Plus+ member you have a gallery. You need to set that up and upload photos there.

For help with the gallery, see here: http://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/index...E=01&HID=18

You can also upload photos and files to posts as attachments? See the area below the post text edit box. You click 'Browse' select a file, then place it into a post. But this is not the most efficient way to just show a photo. See the help above for that where the photo is in the gallery or on another internet photo site, then use the IMG tags to properly format the photo.

Sorry for not seeing this earlier.

Images on the forum don't need to be very big. If you upload only large photos you will use up the 25MB quite fast. Use free software like Google Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/) to resize your photos and save them for the web. A 800 pixel wide photo could be reduced to 40 to 50 kb without any visible loss of quality.

A reminder about Plus+

We'd like to raise some funds for forthcoming ToyFair expenses so if you don't have Plus+, please help support the forum.

The price of 15 Euros per annum (£12 / $19) has remained the same since the service was introduced in 2007 - how's that for inflation!

I keep thinking of signing up then the mean side of me urges me to wait till the Euro is at par with the Zimbabwe dollar - which cannot be very far off!

I really should be a plus member, but what with the cost of a new driving licence (£30.00) and passport (£75.00), both of which take priority, not to mention the cost of simple things like gas/electricity/ water....

Hmmm

Regards

When we started this service on 2007 it cost 15 Euros/£10. Today it is 15 Euros/£12. It is not the Euro that is loosing value in the grand scheme of things
Better do it now, next year it may be more

Please go ahead


I'll put up a Toyfair topic in the next week or two. Stay tuned.
