1. What are the Changes?
1. What are the changes?

Here is a run-down of the changes:

-Version update, we went from version 3.6.7 to 3.7.5. This update incorporates many bug fixes and also adds some new privacy measures.

-Left hand column - The left navigation bar has now been enabled on all pages. The left nav contains advertisements, which in turn generate revenues to help support this community. If you do not like the left column, for your convenience, all registered members can turn-off the left-column in your User CP as follows:

Step 1: Click on your “User CP” (on the top “nav bar”)

Step 2: Click on “Edit Options” (in left menu)

Step 3: Click “Disable” on Sidebar option (under “Additional Information”)

- Google advertisement – we have added a new Google ad placement for “Guests only” between the 1st and 2nd post of each thread. This placement does NOT appear for registered members, and hopefully will encourage more of our guests to register for the website.

- A second ad placement can be found at the top of the page with our site sponsors banners rotating with page refreshes. This highlights our site supporters.

- Intellitext advertising – Another revenue generating measure to help cover the costs of operation. All registered users can disable the Intellitxt ads (highlighted words in green) in your User CP (under "Edit Profile") by clicking the "Disable" box

2. What is this Premium Membership? Do I have to pay now?
No you do not have to pay. However, we are now offering a Lifetime membership in addition to updating the 1 year option. This site has always been free, and will continue to be so.

Registered Users- As always, registered users will have free access to the site with our regular registration. Users can navigate the site, send private messages, and contribute to threads on the forums. Registered users can also turn the “left nav” off. Please see FAQ question #1 (above) for detailed instructions.

Premium Membership- The premium membership package offers the same level of access as above, with the addition of being able to have a larger avatar, more private message space, bigger gallery space, as well as the option to remove most of the ads. Also, you will receive a nice shiny new tag under your username. The premium membership costs $15 per year, and will help support further upgrades and better servers for Mini2.

Lifetime Membership- Lifetime Membership is a one-time donation to have everything which is included with a premium membership, and also includes a sticker package to show your MINI2 support on your car or toolbox. The lifetime membership costs a one-time fee of $40 and once again goes towards supporting Mini2 including further upgrades and better servers.

Memberships on Mini2.com are optional, and you should not feel obligated to pay – the economy is very tough right now, and we understand if now is not the best time. Hopefully this site has saved you more money then a premium membership will ever cost you. We certainly appreciate the contributions (posts, answering questions, etc.) that each of you has already provided. Your financial contribution would be appreciated, but is by no means a requirement.
