Donating/Premium Memberships
« on: October 03, 2010, 09:01:13 PM »
While we have yet to code the premium membership system on the new league, all old premium members still have their premium memberships on the new league.  And today DTA has worked  on the improved daily results page and for Premium members they now have the first of many added features.  Premium members will have access too 30 days of dailly results, while regular members will have just 7 days of results.

So anyone that wants to become a premium member or just donate to the league to help with our server and other costs can do so here at the CivPlayers PayPal Account  And please email DTA at gcpumc@hotmail.com  after you have sent money to our paypal account so he can confirm it was recieved and give you your premium membership in the player database.

After some long discussion among the Admin team we have decided that to cover our costs that Premium memberships will go from the $5 per year, we have charged for the last 2 years, to $10 per year.  We feel this is still pretty inexpensive and there will be plenty of advantages to being Premium as we continue to add to the league's code and feature list.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions please feel free to do so.

Yes we will have a Donate/Premium membership system setup, but we have alot to do and that is not near the top of the list yet, when we have the Admin Panel, Tournament system, and Clans system and CCC to code first.

This post will have to do in the mean time.

Dear Bantams,

Thank you for supporting CivPlayers and being a premium member, we hope that you like our plus featues and services.


This 2nd (and last) E-mail reminder is being sent to you because your premium membership is about to expire on Fri Feb 11, 2011 11:30:08.

If you want to extend your membership and keep on using our premium featues, you can visit our 'Premium Membership' section and renew your subscription using the PayPal payment service. Your account will be automatically set back to regular status if you don't extend your membership, so if you plan to stop being a premium member you can just ignore this E-mail. But remember, as a regular member your account is no longer protected from purging and you will lose access to all of your customized settings.

If you change your mind later and want to become a premium member again, all your stats, settings and customizations will be reactivated - you will NOT lose anything.

NOTE: Don't reply to this E-mail, it is sent automatically by the system. If you have any problems please write an extra E-mail to any admin.

Sincerely,
the C4P Admin Team


concidering I sent the money and emailed DTA last week how many un renewed premium accounts are there waiting to be renewed?

Bantams, can you check the IP address that that email came from, and post it here?  We are sure it is NOT coming from our server, but that it is coming from Phemon's server, because he never bothered to remove that code.

We do not have that code in League 2.0, and the old league 1.0 code is not active.

Yes apparently he doesn't even know he is reminding our players to renew their premium accounts on our league :-/  But don't worry as long as you use the info in post #1 of this thread you are donating to the real Civplayers Leagues, not some hacker.  He was just to lazy to remove this code from his league.

DTA is not a professional programmer he is a factory manager/team leader, Bantams.  He learned php and mysql solely to help the league and players like yourself.  Just like he learned to mod Proboards forums before that for C4P.

So try and be a little less critical about something you know nothing about, DTA donates much of his free time to coding this league.  And him and me are trying to make the code easily upgradable if we need to add leagues, and make the database design rock solid so that we do not run into the same issues we did with the original league 1.0 with the tournament and CCC system crashing after a year of data.

Not to mention that we learned alot about php/mysql security last year and we have to ensure that every line of code we write is secure and does not open any doors for hackers.

And if you want to blame someone for why we put X priority above Y priority, that person would be me, not DTA.   The premium membership code is not high on the priority list BECAUSE I was able to provide a stop gap measure that did the job.  Same with tournaments that we can run "on paper" in the forums.  But there is no replacement for the player profile data or the Admin panel functions, so that is what DTA is working on.

We can also provide the "seasonal league" functions at the same time as they are related code, but other stuff is going to take time.  You may not see stuff appearing every day, but that is because some functions take days or weeks to code all the back end code before you get to see some new UI or function.  Even one small function can take modifying/adding 20% or more to the code base.  And we want to do this right the first time.

So try and be patient, the emails you received were not from us, the PayPal system we use is secure and so is your $10 donation.  So I don't see what it is that you are concerned about anyway.

We are getting a little low in general revenue, so if there is anyone that would like a premium membership or just would like to donate to keep the league running please do.

Thank you

It's $10USD a year.  As for your luck, I can reset your skill/RD or your entire record if you like, but as for your luck in partners....sorry :P
