Wednesday marked the end of our Lifetime Subscriber awards. As reported here, as of midnight last night we have now moved to the new system of rewards for qualifying speed camera location reports.

What is most important is that the service continues and these changes were necessary to ensure it survives. Our Lifetime subscriber award was by far the most generous of its type and proved to be so successful that it risked the continued viability of the service, after all, a life membership would be of little value if the service folded and so change was necessary.

We hope that the new reward scheme will still encourage subscribers to report new cameras and rewards can be accrued thus rewarding the most active reporters.

We have also implemented a new donation system as requested by our life members and readers. The donation page can be found here. Anyone who wishes to make a donation can now do so. The funds will be put towards the running costs of the site, forums, free POIs and other services.

The last batch of new life members will be announced later today and, as always, your continued support is appreciated by all of us.

Donation Page: HERE

I already "donated" a month ago by paying to extend/renew my subscription.

Incidentally, what's the PayPay system?

Very Happy The PayPay system or Paipai system as it is in chinese is a organisational method created by Paipai Huang for organising his degree papers. Great system just doesn't work in any other language.

This is clearly a lie so don't take it seriously

I think you need to link to the donation page in the top menus and have a prominent button somewhere in the sidebar. At the moment the only links I can find to the donation page are the ones in the post above. Don't be shy.

It's also under the "My Accounts" tab at the top, which us what I used.

But like others I couldn't find it without a lot of looking. I know where it is now, but having it's own little tab/button on view all the time might be better and be a more visible reminder without going OTT.

And you knew that you could donate. What about others that might want to if they knew?

And it should be a clicky button on every newsletter too. It shouldn't be difficult to find - how many street collectors stand behind bushes or round the corner? C'mon pgpsw, rattle your tin!

Donation done. I can't complain as I've had a few years worth just for spotting one camera being erected. Very Happy

Quite a few. But then they JUMP OUT AT YOU and thrust their tins at your unsuspecting self

Not allowed to do that, it's scroungist! Not to mention noisy and annoying!
