Help support The Totally Triumph Network by upgrading your membership... and enjoy the benefits.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Totally Triumph Network TEAM supporter to help fund the ongoing operation, growth and long term survival of the The Totally Triumph Network. Originally created to provide all Triumph motorcar enthusiasts with an advanced discussion platform free of superfluous off-topic content and flame wars, the site debuted as The Totally Triumph Garage on September 7, 2000 and has grown steadily in membership.
As of November, 2001, this site had been visited by more than 23,000 unique visitors and is accessed over 11,000 times per week.
Originally, commercial vendor support of this site through banner advertising was anticipated, but after 14 months of operation funded entirely out of my own pocket, an optional, enhanced form of membership was desperately needed in order to continue the operation of this site and maintain the excellent level of service and discussion environment that our members have come to appreciate and expect. A secondary, but important purpose for this fundraising effort is to upgrade and expanding the network's offerings for the further enjoyment of our valued members.
To solve the increasing strain of funding this site, we've come up with a real win/win program whose benefits to each upgraded, or "Team" member, will far outweigh its investment by way of a very modest annual membership fee of $20 (U.S.) per year.
For your annual membership fee provides enhanced membership benefits which include:
- An immediate upgrade of your forum access. You'll receive a special "TTN Team" icon next to your name on all forum posts (retroactive), denoting your special "supporting" status as a valued member who is dedicated to the ongoing operation of this site.
- Instant, real-time e-mail notification of new messages in your subscribed forums the moment they are posted, replacing the truncated digest version which is only sent periodically to regular forum members. Your enhanced e-mail will contain the entire text message that's just been posted to subscribed forums, plus contain a hotlink directly to the new post or reply on the site.
- Full access to restricted Team Only forums on this site not available to the general public or regular non-supporting members, that contain valuable information including the most useful posts gleaned from our forum archives, advanced project and maintenance tips, upgrades, conversions and more.
- Special offers from the Totally Triumph Network Gift Shop and periodic discounts on merchandise from selected Triumph parts vendors. Only Team members qualify for these special offers and cash discounts.
- Your own personal website, hosted by the Totally Triumph Network. Upload and manage graphics and web page content within your own space for free! Click here to see Team member sites currently running or under construction.
- Enhanced forum features not available to regular members, like the ability to upload photos from your computer into your posts, insert smilies, and create custom Avatars that reflect your own, unique personality!
So, where does your membership fee go?
Towards the ongoing monthly connection fees and costs of maintaining the dedicated Totally Triumph Network Internet server and domain.
- Towards the purchase and installation of additional hardware including permanent storage and performance upgrades so that the archives and your ability to upload graphics to the site.
