The Candid Board Elite Subscription Membership Option

Please Click Here to View the Frequently Asked Questions

After 4 years of maintaining The Candid Board Forum as a completely free service, my escalating server bills, programming costs and recent legal fees have compelled me to begin charging a nominal fee to support TheCandidBoard Forum and Galleries.

The Candid Board Forum will REMAIN FREE to everyone to read and view comments and thumbnails. We offer Free Picture hosting and Video hosting for Elite Members. However, to view the photos in The Candid Board Elite Members area, use the Private Messaging system, and use the search function. I would ask that you buy a subscription. The price is only $19.99 for one month.

Regular Members will continue to enjoy reading and posting cooments and otherwise participating in The Candid Board Forum as before. I sincerely hope that the Regular Members will also support The Candid Board Forum by buying a subscription.

Established and respected members get a FREE membership ! Be a quality supporter by posting positive comments ! Be a upstanding member of the community and you qualify.

Subscriptions will be purchased via CCBill. Your credit card charge will not indicate that it's for a TheCandidBoard Membership in case anyone is checking your financial statements. To protect your privacy, any charges will discreetly appear as "CCBILL LLC" on your credit card statement.



I have started a new thread to discuss this subject. As always, I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Thanks,

TheCandidBoard Team
