    September 18, 2004 marks the one year anniversary of the opening of ObservedTrials.net. I am amazed at the community we all have been able to create in such a short period of time and I'm looking forward to our second year together. I've been preparing for this for the past 6 weeks and I am extremely proud to be able to offer more features.

    We are and always will be a free site, but in a neverending attempt to bring you the features you want while at the same time trying to cover server and software costs, I have implemented a new subscription system.

    Current users benefits won't change, but subscribers will receive the following additional benefits:

    1.) A customized [email protected] e-mail address. This e-mail box is protected against spam and virii and you receive 30mb of storage space for e-mails. Log in and view the demo: https://www.observedtrials.net/usermail

    username: test
    password: test

    Try right clicking on the folders on the left, be sure to check out the calendar, and look at all of the options in the preferences (though not all are available in the demo). Compose a new message, test the what you see is what you get interface and try the spell checker. Try toggling the folder tab (bottom left).

    When you have new mail, you will know about it on every page of the forums and homepage:
    [​IMG]

    2.) Larger avatars. When subscribed you can have avatars up to 150 x 250 pixels or roughly the same size as mine.

    3.) Your name appears in red. On every post you make, your name will appear in red - let everyone know you support the site!

    4.) A "supporter" image - [​IMG] - appears below your name on all of your posts - let everyone know you support the site!

    5.) An increased private message box. Current users are allowed to store 300 messages. This may seem like a lot, but when you count incoming and outgoing messages you can run through this space quickly. Subscribed users will receive storage space for 5000 privates messages!

    6.) More image attachments in threads. Current users can have up to 3mb of attachments spread out through all of their posts on the board. Subscribed users receive 10x that amount, 30mb of attachment space.

    7.) Increased gallery space. Current users are allowed to upload 10mb of pictures in their photo albums. Subscribed users receive 50mb of storage space in the galleries.

    8.) Large profile pictures. You can upload an up to 800x800 pixel wide picture to be seen in your profile.

    9.) Access to a subscribers only forum. This will give you access to chat only with other subscribers and Administrators/moderators. In special cases where I feel uncomfortable posting a video link for the rest of the forum I may re-host videos for these guys only as they will be considered a trusted group. These links won't be available outside of the trusted group.

    ***PLEASE NOTE THAT CURRENTLY THE E-MAIL INTEGRATION WITH THE FORUM SOFTWARE IS A BIT FLUNKY DUE TO THE UPGRADE OF VBULLETIN (our forum software) ON 10/8/05. I AM WORKING ON FIXING THIS, BUT NO GUARANTEES :hs: ***

    Sign up via paypal here: https://www.observedtrials.net/vb/payments.php.

    6 months = $20
    12 months = $35

    To insure your upgrade takes effect instantly, make sure the e-mail address you use on otn and paypal are the same.

    Alternatively, if you would like to pay by check or money order, you can send payment to

    Please include your username on the forums in the envelope.

    Thanks for supporting observedtrials.net!

    Thanks, Rush. So how do you guys like the e-mail system? I have to say, its the main reason I have to charge. Otherwise we would just be open to spammers, I'd be out a few hundred dollars in penalties for spamming, and the site would be shutdown with the quickness.

    Subscriptions will soon be going back down to 6 and 12 months instead of 9 and 18. If you want to get in on the extended time period for the same price you have until tomorrow evening. Anything postmarked by that date (if you're subscribing by mail) will also receive the discounted price.
