There are two ‘member’ listings. I admit it is confusing, but I’ll try to explain.

The paid membership of the 16ga. Society is a separate, confidential list. We don’t publish, share or sell the Society list to anyone. The 16ga. Society membership fee supports the website, mitigates the cost of maintaining and updating the site and pays for modest magazine advertising.

You can join the 16ga, Society by entering the website and clicking on the 'Join Us' icon. You can use the Paypal option or print out a mail-in form and send us a check. The 16ga. Society currently has 1,400 paid members. If they use the Bulletin Board then a blue members symbol appears with their posts. If you believe you have paid for a membership but haven't received your blue symbol even though you have joined the 16ga. Society, then send me a PM with your name and username and we will look you up and correct it.

The GunTalk Forum list is free and is simply the listing of contributors’ Usernames. We know you by your Username only. The GunTalk forum is a valuable forum for the exchange of information and attracts a wide range of contributors. We don’t limit participation on GunTalk to ‘16ga. Members only’ because it would limit the amount of information available. The tag on GunTalk registration referring to a Members list is confusing at best. It is a part of the forum software and we can't change it.

Sorry for the confusion and thank you for joining the Society. Without the one-time membership fee the website would go away, so we appreciate your support.

--Doug

I'm with Paul. I would like to join, but I see no "join us icon" I even logged out and logged back in again, just to see if I could find it that way. No Luck. I'm confident that there are others like myself that would like to pay to support the site, we just don't know how.
Thanks,
Dave

If you believe you have paid for a membership but haven't received your blue symbol even though you have joined the 16ga. Society, then send Doug a PM with your name and username and he will look you up and correct it.

He started this thread and is the site administrator. In other words, he is the only one who runs this place. No mods. Only Doug.

So please be patient.

Hang in there neighbor! What's going on at the ranch? Keeping the snow at bay? Hi to Don and Char.

Pulled the trigger today on the lifetime membership this morning. Kudos on the PayPal option, what a breeze that was. Over and done in 90 seconds, no check, no stamp!

OK, the tag din't appear. I joined years ago, then was inactive for a while. I rejoined the forums, but I have sent rmails three times over the last two years asking about my status per the society, but no one has ever responded to any of the emails. When I joined I got my 16 ga bag and other goodies, but can't seem to get an email response. What gives?

Don't quote me but I think that because you have the rights to post that you are electronically recognized as a member. Thanks for your contribution and patience with an organization run by volunteers that have real jobs elsewhere. They do the best they can and will get to your problem in due time.

Thanks again and have a great wingshooting season, and remember to take a kid and a 16 for a walk this fall.
