I've been making regular donations through my missus' paypal account. How do I go about switching the payments to come out of my own paypal account? Is it simply a case of cancelling the payment at one end then setting up a new payment or can I do it through the UMA forum?

Thanks for your support Kong! Switching PayPal accounts sounds like something at your end of the screen. Not sure of the process exactly, but it sounds like your wife's PayPal account is your primary account? There must be an option somewhere at PayPal under your settings to change things? Thanks again, my friend!

Thanks! It should be easy enough, just wasn't sure if I could do it on the forum by switching payment options or whatever.  ;)

There is no late. Donate whenever you want, as often as you want.  :)  I just made another (modest) donation.

Sure wish there were some cheap little UMA pin-back buttons to give one each to folks who donated. I gave anyway, but a cheap collectible would be a nice thank you and a cool keepsake we could display with our monster stuff. I know there are a few UMA collectibles floating around but I haven't gotten a chance to purchase anything to represent UMA in my collection.

Maybe we could work out something in the way of a membership kit?

Dude, that would rule! It would probably be a good incentive to bring in more money for those folks on the fence about donating.  :)

For a cool membership kit I would throw more into the till!  ;)

Terry is on board with the idea, so stay tuned!

I was thinking of a classic membership package of button, ID card and certificate.

Buttons and I.D. Cards are useful for getting the word out.  People would see a Button and I.D. Cards could be shown to interested parties.

Certificates would have to be framed and take up valuable wall space in monster rooms. 

Instead of a Certificate, how about a Luggage Sticker, Decal or Bumper Sticker that could be placed where that could be displayed people could see it and ask us about the group?

Just spit-balling out loud.

I agree with all the suggestions and would add a Glenn Strange Halloween bucket to the giftschool. Think of the generous contributions that would inspire.

Did anybody frame their FM Club cert?  :laugh:

I was just spit-balling, too. Thinking about the old monster mag membership kits. We're open to suggestions!  :)

Yeah, I was being a little sarcastic there.  I was just pointing out that Certificates are usually stuffed in drawers and forgotten.  Better to have something that remains visible.

(Does anybody use Travel stickers on luggage anymore?)

Hard to beat the old tried and true formula- Button, Card, Certificate. Seems appropriate as an homage to what we celebrate here.

I never hang certificates. I have a couple in Mylar and boarded that I lean as background in my shelves.

Maybe Terry could throw in bits of his collection to spice things up- you know, a Marx Frankie Robot here, a Strange Frank Bucket there...  >:D  Just joshin'  ;D

Whatever you guys come up with will be appreciated. We'll have a little chunk of UMA memorabilia in our collections to represent.  :)

A few weeks ago I lost the "Posts since last visit" feature even though I made no changes to my preferences/profile. I understand that I'm not the only one who has lost this convenient feature in the last few months.

What's going on? How can we reacquire this feature?

 ???

At the very top right of the page, where it says "WELCOME MONSTER LOVER", is the little arrow pointing up, or down?

This was more of a "Help Me" question, than a "Support the UMA" query.
