Default How does one become a "Donor"

Hi Guys,

I noticed recently a lot of people have the status of "Donor" instead of "Senior Member", "Member", Junior Member etc.

How does one become a "Donor". I have donated to IV SEVERAL times in the past.

Our monthly subscription based model will help members get access to this area for that time period. In the coming days we will be consolidating all previous subscribers who are continuing their subscription at present to be added as well. If you are an old continuing subscriber, and do not have access, do send an email to info at immigrationvoice.org with your name, email, amount subscribed every month and your IV ID. We will verify it and add you. If you have given a one time payment this month more than $25, we will be dividing it by $25 and the system will calculate the number of months you are subscribed. If you have the old $20/month subscription, please continue that. We will add you in the Monthly subscribers as well.

If you wish to subscribe, please click on the donate now link, adjacent to the green progress bar above and subscribe.

From now we will post IV updates on the donor forum so that members who contribute get the privilege of getting the information. If the information can be released for public, we will release it on the main forums after a delay. Donor forum will have the first access to the information. All donors will be identified by a 'donor' status in their profiles instead of junior/senior members.

If members want to start a thread in the donor forum, please add 'Donor Forum' before the the thread title so that everyone knows it is in the restricted area.

Admins will visit this area more often and answer questions from members. This will also enable more close coordination and communication between committed members. It is sometimes difficult for us to to read every post on the forum or post certain information for public consumption.

Thank you for your continued support

No, it does not even do that. it does not let FOIA donors logon too.
First, the whole concept of donor based organisation is so stupid.
I mean really stupid.

If the donor based thing is ON, the future of IV is not good.
Yeah, IV does good work by talking to people all around, from different stratas of lawmaking and what not.

but get real, look around guys, information is everywhere, not only here. and you are working for the greater good of the community, only donors are not going to be benefitting from this.

Instead of making donor based posts, have a FOIA kinda drive every now and then.

unbelievable, and to top that, even donors cant access the so called 'DONOR posts'.
talk about low life bureaucracy, welcome to IV.

Not true. Anybody donates will get Donor status. This is started for last few days, so people who donated in last few days get this. Pappu mentioned that he is planning to cross reference this with old donations but not sure whats happening there.

Give the Core team a break. What you think they have nothing else to do?
They have families and above all they have a life. IV is not paying for their family or anything, so they have to work and earn for their livelihood. They do all this in their spare time, and not like you, who always end up criticizing.

Think before you start bashing or belittle anyone;s efforts.

Default cool it

It is very easy to contradict or find errors.

No body is getting paid here to have a tester test it.

Yes I like the idea of donor for paid members. There are 31000 members not even 2500 members are contributing. This is one way of making them pay for the services or the info you get from the forum.

I support you reddymjm. It is easy to criticize. Every one should understand this. I was supporting paid forums from the begining. Nothing comes FREE in this world.

Many of my known people who are paid as much as me or even more do not even think of contributing any amount. But they keep questioning when do we get green cards.

We were habituated to criticize others as we were grown to spoon feed by our parents.

I support IV on this.

Pappu,

I have a suggestion! I don't think forcing monthly $25 contribution to keep donor status alive is a very good idea, especially in current economy. Take an example of myself. It is decided that I am going to loose job on 17th March, may not be able to contribute every month.

Rethink!

This is SO wrong. I strongly disagree on this new initiative.
Desperation does not necessarily have to be shown.

Dear ItIsNotFunny,

For committed people like you, we can request IV core for some special consideration.

But I support this initiative. Just see the FOIA thread. We could not even pool up 5K and there are at least 5000 members out of which at least 500 active users.

Unless there is some intiative like this, it will be impossible for pushing any lobbying activities. There are many people who wants every thing free.

I support IV

I support the idea. Its just market is bad and people may not be able to contribute so regularly.
