    We have been working hard behind the scenes at the Labrador Forum to make your new forums run smoothly and we think we are just about there!

    In addition to the new software upgrade our techie team have put together a new option for those who would like to be able to upload their photos directly to the forum instead of having to store them on flickr, or photo bucket for example.

    In order to access this new facility all you need to do is upgrade your membership to Forum Supporter. This upgrade is available from your profile page and costs £10 per annum (at the time of posting this is about $14.40 in USD or $20 Australian Dollars). Payment is by Paypal who convert the currency for you.

    Upgraded members also get a pretty forum banner across their avatar to show their support!

    There is absolutely no obligation to participate in the new scheme, and you won’t lose any of the functions you currently have, if you don’t want to join.

    Best wishes
    Pippa

    Credit cards generally work in Europe. :) Unless they are really strange US ones....

    Have you googled the exchange rate? It's about £1 of normal money to 1.4 of your dollar thingys...but I suppose the rate you pay will depend on the rate your card provider gives you....

    I'm in Australia and just paid through PayPal. It shows pounds and then the amount in your local currency before you hit pay.

    Many thanks to all for your support! Sorry for neglecting our international members. I have amended the post to include a rough idea of cost from USA or Australia. :)

    If you click on your username at the top right of the page, there's an "Account upgrades" link.

    Or, a little more helpfully, click here: http://thelabradorforum.com/account/upgrades :D
