As a magazine subscriber and a digital subscriber, I couldn't sign up fast enough. This forum is tops in people helping others and also in gaining knowledge for things we want to do, can't do and learning whom to send it to. No Where on the internet will you gain FRIENDS like here. I know one of the popular sites has you getting lots of FRIENDS but think of this please:

1. Here you can just remain quiet for free and observe

2. Here you can ask for help

3. here you can offer help

4. Here you find out you have friends that will actually communicate with you and help you or support you. They aren't in a list that you have to confirm then never hear from them.

5. Here your friends are really friends wanting to listen, Offer support or help and sometimes physically offer to come help out. You will not find that any where else and all for free.

I get the magazine and love it, I also get the digital and love it as it lets me do lots of things plus search previous issues of the magazine. It also has the same articles with MORE content.

Asking for $12.00 a year which is $1 a month is nothing. I don't drink coffee but I guzzle 7Up. I think I can do without 6 two liter bottles a year.

And as a final note:

Thank you all for being friends regardless of how stupid or dumb or ignorant (and sometimes but I hope few, Arrogant) I am.

What's Up? Seven of course! 7Up best drink to have with trains! Notch them up to 8 and run down the rails.

 

It must be Alan, my certificate is 10302.

My certificate number is 10305.  Was thinking it would have been higher.  

 

***Edited to Add***

Just saw that my certificate number is the same as the OGR WEB STORE Order Number.  Take that to mean certificate number is not really related to the number of Supporting Members.  Just a sequential number assigned to the web store order used to setup the certificate download.

Great idea!!  I am happy to contribute.  Such a great product!  Oh yes, I printed my certificate as well.  10307

Reminds me of all the various numbers I have on my architectural licenses across the western US.  10311 for me! 

Now that reminds me of the 12 hours of continuing education I need by October 31 to keep them all. 

This was a no-brainer for me.

I am glad I follow a bunch of people. For some reason when Alan originally posted this on the 31st, it was no where to be found(possibly I accidentally deleted it being confused it was another topic I was following that Alan started/commented on). Regardless of all that I am here to say, "Yes, count me in on that" The numbers are our order numbers, don't know if that is our certificate number. My order number is 10315, not bad.

I had seen Don comment on the other topic Arnold started and since I was at work I was wondering what he was talking about. Coming home I didn't get a chance to get a look as my eyelids covered my eyes for some strange reason. Since I had to come up here and order some other stuff(I still have to order work shoes, ugh), I popped my head in here to read a little better.

So, now this will be something else. I will have to get a picture frame for this so it doesn't get lost somewhere, can't have that happen. I am happy to join the ranks, I just thought the number would be higher. Is the clicker counter broken?

As long as it fits and doesn't float. My mom picked out a frame a great number of years ago. When the pictures came back, she never put any in the frame. She told one of her friends jokingly about the picture(was a grad stock picture) that it was her other son Joe. That became a running joke. I don't know what we did with "Joe". I don't remember if someone needed a frame and mom gave it away, or if he is still floating somewhere, lol.

Just so you understand the certificate numbers, they do NOT indicate the total number of Supporting Members. The certificate number is generated by our web server at the time you download your certificate. They are also not necessarily sequential. It’s just a number that is exclusively yours.

Rich, I am glad you put out the sign that says, "Guys, over here." as I would have been completely lost. Downloaded it, just have print it. Thanks Rich.

So, I (the most tech-non-savy person I know), just went on my computer (not my smartphone, which I am pretty good at thanks to my prolific Forum involvement) and I completed the application, paid the $12 online and am now officially a Supporting Member (Hooray), but for the life of me, I don't see on the computer screen staring at me how to access the Certificate!

I could have sworn I previously read here somewhere how to download the Certificate, but now can't find that info.

Help!

LOL, Arnold

In a nutshell, once you become a Supporting Member, how do you download the Certificate?

Arnold;

‘You should have received an email acknowledging your payment/membership. In that note is a link to get the certificate. One note... it will take you to the store and it will look like you are purchasing the certificate, but the cost is $0.00. You will be asked to input all your info like you did when you paid the $12, but there is no charge. Hope this helps.

Aha!

Thank you Paul. I just officially joined late this evening, so I never got that email, maybe because I applied so late in the evening.

The email came from FeePod Premium Memberships.

Aha! The email went into my spam!

Now I have the certificate and my number is, drum roll please (LOL): 10318.

I could not have gotten it without your help, Paul.

I think it is good that we spelled out the steps in the process of getting the certificate for other non-tech savvy Forum members like me.  Arnold 

Hey, this is Cool, really Cool: Digital Subscriber is shown in Red, Supporting Member is Blue, on a White background.  O Gauge Railroading is as American as Mom's Apple Pie.  As a vet who served three years (1964-1967) in the US Army Transportation Corps, I am extremely proud to be a Member in Good Standing with OGR, plus part of a bunch of really Good Old Boys and Girls!

Item: I have noticed that the women who engage in The World's Greatest Hobby are truly Professional Modelers who take their work seriously and enjoy sharing it with fellow model railroaders.  Regretfully, I wasn't blessed with such skills.  Ready-to-Run Forever...LOL

I just want to take this opportunity to personally thank all who have elected to become Supporting Members of this forum and, by extension, supporters of OGR magazine. Your loyalty to our organization--truly more of a family--is much appreciated. We are all living in especially difficult times at present, but I like to think that involvement in this great and diverse hobby has helped a good many of us "ride out the storm" and maintain a sense of emotional and mental stability in what most certainly are abnormal times. Wishing you all a safe and healthy future. Thanks again for your much appreciated support.

Alan: Done,  but how do I get the Digital Subscriber tag also I missed out when you run the post? Like John stated a buck a month for this great forum how can you go wrong. I have saved more than that just with what I have learned here.

 

Just got my certificate and my number is 10321.

 

Thank You 

OGR Staff for this great idea.
