    Thanks so much for the support! We really appreciate it. We are continually amazed at the support and the impact Overland Bound Members have on the Overlanding community and movement world-wide. It's amazing!

    I'll be the first to admit, membership, support, emblems, web site log-ins are NOT simple (yet) with Overland Bound. We will make this SIMPLE as we can. Here is an explanation of the different membership and support options:
    1. Members: This is the primary way to support us, and become a member of our crew! By purchasing an emblem, you get a unique member number that is your forever and all time. Since you can order from the store, OR in the forums, we have a manual process to update forum users with all member benefits. These benefits include:
      • 2-3/8″ Dia. Solid metal
      • Permanent adhesive back
      • Each numbered and registered to its owner
      • Signed certificate of authenticity included
      • A special Member banner on your forum profile
      • A special badge in the forums that identifies you as a "Supporter" for six months
      • Private access to the "Overland Bound Supporter" Forum for six months
    2. Supporters: This is for people to support the cost of the website and forums. It's a $3.99 re-occurring monthly payment to help us keep the lights on. We've committed to NOT having advertisements in the forums, so this is a voluntary way to help us out. That is why, with the member purchase, the supporter badge is a 6 month thing, not a lifetime thing.
    3. Contributor: Some people want to just slip us a $20 as a thank you, but don't want the reoccurring payment. This is for them! It includes Supporter Member Forum privileges for 6 Months
    4. Ultimate Member Pack: This is a discount for people who want to go, "all-in", AND many people want two badges. It includes a T-Shirt and Stickers as well. It is actually much easier from a production standpoint (and cheaper) to manufacture the emblems at the same time, so we offer a discount with this package.
    I hope this answers your questions, and thanks again for your interest and support. I think we are on to great things! If you have other questions, let us know!

    Michael and @CorrieOB

    Michael,

    Hello. I sent in my paypal payment for my two emblems on the 29th of April. I am not being inpatient, just curious as to when I should expect to receive them.

    Thanks!

    BTW, I've been a long time member of Ex-Portal and T4R.org and found out about this site thru another T4R.org member. I absolutely love the knowledge base here and supportive community!

    Thanks again.

    Tim

    Michael and Corrie are usually pretty prudent in their responses. click on their name and start a conversation. they will see that and respond. sometime posts get buried in other posts and they miss them. try that. hope this helps.

    Evidently if you are asking for a specific membership number, then that creates a bit of a delay accommodating you... For instance, I'm still waiting patiently as well :sunglasses: for a specific number.

    Nothing specific for me. Just my initial membership emblem (don't have it yet), and a duplicate of it.

    I was notified by Corrie that it was going to be shipped last week. Haven't received it yet. They are all at expo west this weekend so maybe I'll get it this week.

    How do I get the "member" banner on my profile? I purchased a membership/emblem a couple of weeks back. It's not a huge deal, was just curious.

    Hi Luis! Since this was a custom number request it takes longer since we have to have it custom manufactured. I think you and @Corrie emailed and got all squared away! All set?
