Just bought one! Can I buy two? ... Alas, I can't!
But I totally would, and I'm sure several others would too!

Just my two cents, or rather my $25, I think you should have different Supporter Tiers, and leave it uncapped.

Like, for $5, you get one month ad-free, $10 three months, $25 forever...
$50 or more = forever + some extra bonuses like those ever-elusive naked pics of you, Tom.

I think a lot of the websites, that aforementioned VCs are currently throwing money at, do this freemium model?
(Reddit Gold being the first example I can think of)

I wish Newgrounds all the best.
The community here is awesome, and I know together, we'll help NG pull through!

Considering shipping costs and customs charges, this supporter upgrade is actually the best value thing on the site for me

I am having difficulty with Checking out it says my cards either don't match up or are being declined WHEN I HAVE MONEY ON THEM. I even went to the store to buy a pre-paid debit card and tried and I still don't get it.

Adding to that, I can't purchase it because it's asking me for a state and province?

I don't really know what exactly a province and state refers to seeing as I'm in the UK. Is it my constituency, my sovereign?

I applied for my first credit card last week. Hopefully I'll get it and I'll be able to support NG :)

You guys have done a lot for me in the past, and I know $25 ain't much, but I hope it'll help!

So yeah, keeping fingers crossed for now.

Also my previous question still stands - will it be possible to remove or at least move the "supporter" banner on the profile. I know you want curious people to click it and maybe become supporters themselves but I really don't like the "I paid actual money for a premium account with silly bells and whistles" vibe of it.

We've been talking about finally adding Paypal. We have a fear of adding it, then having like 10 people use it and being like "Oh we could have just had them send it to our Paypal email instead of building an entire feature around it."

I'll see about adding a "Hide" button - it's just always tough to prioritize when other big features are being worked on.

How much does having Adblock off help the site? Does just letting the ads show up help?

Yea I know haha. It's just a tiny pet peeve of course but I thought I'd ask in case it'd be a quick thing to add

well alot of the younger users complain about not having a card and the possibility of Paypal. plus the real fear is the fact of PayPal freezing you account something they have been known to do. I use paypal now because I been having problems with my cards in the NG store and I have all the correct info and the money but it says CARD DECLINED.

I got the upgrade without even thinking twice about it. I've always supported NG, and this is another way I can help.
