    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad.

Hello to Angie!
I started to become a supporting memebr but when I got to Papal checkout it said the $$ was going to 7 Global Community Solutions . I expected to see Group Builder or something more identifiable. Nervous about the page being hi-jacked I couldn't find anything online that reassured me.

Could you please tell me if 7 Global Community Solutions is correct? And perhaps what their relationship is to Group Builder which I have been assuming represented the new owner?

Thanks!
I did a bit of digging and came up with this information:
Keith Ubben is the man behind both Companies, so on that basis I would say they are one of the same.

Sorry Angie if I trod on your toes.

Thanks for the info. I now see that 7 Global Community Solutions has the same 911 P.O. box number that Angie mentioned earlier. I think this is a self-renewing membership every year? I'm not really good with that for one reason being they could raise the membership more than I would want to pay & I wouldn't know about it until the transaction was complete. So I will be glad to donate $30 one shot.

Well the small group uses both names. Most often Group Builder. but in the past a few things have been listed under the 7 Global Community Solutions. Same few guys.

And since we use that same account for more than one forum, we have not figured out the explicit edit that will give more reassurance to those viewing it.

Actually on renewing it locks in a price and we cannot edit it. If you cancel it, then when you sign up on the next year it could be different, but we've not done that to any forum I've been on in the last 4 or 5 years.

Let me know when you do that and I'll be sure to upgrade your account. The system does not do the donations or mailed in ones automatically.

Angie - As far as I can tell "7 Global Community Solutions, Inc. " is a commercial organisation and not a charity, so why are subscriptions to it seemingly classed as 'donations' rather than 'payments'?

Donations are an amount you decide. A Supporting Member is a set amount, but the Commercial Organization is just the owner being a business rather than Joe Smith. It's a tax and legal thing. And you can call it either way, both classifications go to keeping the server online, and a good one. Many photos allowed, developer around for when something comes up. A couple of others contracted here and there for special projects, the add-on software that makes this better than just vanilla Xenforo. Things such as that is where the funds go.
