Hello ehMac.ca members! It's September 4th... my birthday!
Since June 3rd A LOT
of work has been done on ehMac.ca behind the scenes (And a lot of
being spent on design work, coding, developement and software upgrades).
But good news! Tomorrow *cross our fingers* we should start seeing the fruits of our labour.
To celebrate the (beta) opening, and my birthday, we're going to start offering ehMac.ca Sponsored Memberships tonight! ehMac.ca Sponsored Members receive:
1. An official ehMac.ca email address!
(firstname.lastname@example.org) Highlights include:
- Chose 1 of 3 webmail interfaces, included the Mac OS X like RoundCube
(Currently still in beta)
- 20MB of storage space!
- Use your own email client with full POP or IMAP Support
- Great for use with the ehMac.ca Classifieds as an extra assurance of your identity
- Help bring more people to ehMac.ca!
2. Discounts off the soon to open, ehMac.ca Store!
We'll be selling official ehMac.ca merchandise like T's, Mugs, Toque's etc.. but also other cool Mac shirts and products! Some really great rare T-shirts and rare Vintage
Longhorn shirts (The official launch of the ehMac.ca Store will be delayed, as we wait for the release of an exciting new product, but we will have a temporary store open this week)
3. More bandwidth and features!
Do you find your Private Message mailbox filling up? ehMac.ca Sponsoring Members will get to store up to 200 PM's instead of the default 50. You'll get more bandwidth everywhere:
- File attachments (and images) upgrade to 20MB from 10MB
- Gallery space
upgraded to 50MB from 10MB
- Gallery file size limit upgraded to 2MB from 300KB
- More bandwidth upgrades across the site!
As a bonus, you'll also have access to create your very own Online Journal.
Your Journal, which you can share with everyone, or just certain members or friends, differs from the regular boards in that it is a space dedicated just for you in which you can record daily events, or whatever you want that are more personal about you. Almost like an online diary. I think the Journals will become very popular and will be an excellent way for members to learn more about fellow members in our little online community!
The best part about the ehMac.ca Sponsored Membership, is you will be financially supporting ehMac.ca and allow us to continue to grow and improve!
A 1 Year ehMac.ca Sponsored Membership will only cost you a dime a day @ $36.50 per year. But to celebrate my birthday, membership for the next 12 hours will only cost $34. (I happen to know someone that age!
