That is a special discount for the season from the forum. All current forum members are receiving the offer. It is only good with that link as it's not just for someone registering now, unless they have the link.
I was coming in to make a post about it, and will still do so, later today or in the morning.

Thanks for bringing it up so quickly.

And that does not mean there is no free membership, just if you contribute you get a few more perks.

For the last few years members have had the opportunity to pay a small contribution to gain extra benefits, I took up the offer when it was first presented. I considered it worthwhile because of the information that I got from the forum.

I just paid up. This forum is well worth supporting, in my opinion.

The notice says I will receive the following benefits if subscribing.

- Turn off advertising!
- No mobile advertising.
- Larger Avatar & Profile Picture.
- The satisfaction that you are supporting a great community with a great cause that works hard to promote it and advocate for it.

I believe I already have the above benefits but have never subscribed.
Perhaps Austin can confirm if existing benefits enjoyed by forum members are being taken away if no subscription is made ?

I am surprised that you have all those features as you are not a supporting member. But we are taking nothing away from the members.

Since I'm one of those awkward sods that run an ad-blocker and haven't contributed much yet, I've made a contribution. Spend it wisely.
