It has been brought to my attention that the page for purchasing a premium membership subscription is hard to locate on this site. Hopefully this link will help anyone who's interested to navigate there.

I’m pretty sure he’s referring to the regular, paid memberships. In the past it was exceedingly difficult to find. I had to email Bryan about my desire to get a paid membership; but, couldn’t find them. They got moved to a prominent spot, on the home page, at one time. Seems like it got moved and replaced by the link for club knives. Honestly, I would have given up, on a membership, if I hadn’t been “hooked”. I had searched everywhere and finally used the “ contact “ info. Seems like you would want the membership link pretty prominent and readily available. ::shrug::

Hey guys! A bit off topic...but I’m looking at joining the ranks of supporting members and when I went to pay for it, it added $12.95 for shipping. Just curious as to what that is for!?

Contact Bryan (owner of AAPK, user name "Bryan"), about that. Something is hosed up. That shouldn't happen.

This is a significant issue. The link to purchase a membership should definitely be on the AAPK Home page and prominent, easy to spot. I think this is especially import here as many knife collectors are a bit 'computer challenged' and might give up if the page for joining is hard to find.
Membership is of utmost importance. The more members, the more ideas and knowledge that will get posted in AAPK.

Even as I type this, I see the link right up there in the top right corner of the screen.
I went to the home page, right there in the top right corner.
Any and all pages I go to, top right corner of the screen.
You don't see it? ::shrug::

Yes i do see the 'subscription panel' at upper right of page. It seems the person wanting a membership was finding it difficult to join. Perhaps the 'subscription panel' link was temporarily not working ?
My point was simply that it needs to be an easy process to join AAPK. I think whatever the issue was is now remedied.

I believe some of the confusion relates to this thread being started in August. The web page design has changed, since original problems. The most recent post, causing the post to "resurface", regarded an additional "shipping" charge, added to the membership. I'm sure Bryan will find and correct the error.

The last time I went to pay for my membership, $12.95 for shipping was also added to my invoice. I think it may have something to do with us living in Canada? Although Roland did not mention having the same prioblem? I sent Bryan an email and he was going to look into it? However, he is very busy. So I went to my bank and got a cheque for $30 USD and mailed it to Bryan, which he was OK with.

Hi Dan, thanks for that...appreciate it!! I contacted Dan as well and we have come up with a solution. I tried it again tonight and it was still adding shipping, but will get it purchased tonight!
Take care, Bob
