    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you know that you can remove all ads from the site now. You can do so by going to this link: http://www.orchidsforum.com/account/upgrades

    The cost is $10 per year. Once you purchase it you should have your account upgraded within an hour.

    I've been a member for 2/3 yrs. wud like to participate but don'l like facebook, twitter, etc. and have not conquered the navagation of the forums system so I come back and try periodically but become frustrated and give it up. If I cud learn how to work the system I'd gladly pay the $10 to eliminate the ads ! I'm a bit old ( 4 score and 8) for going back to school ! Is there a way, maybe a tutorial, or shud I just give it up??Came back this time because I just added a D. spectabile to my collection.

    Hi Tom. I'm happy to try to help. You were able to make this post so that means you know quite a bit. If you will let me know what you are having trouble with then I can hopefully help.

    There is a lot to learn here and a lot to see. I hope you don't give up. I remember feeling very lost at first but it is really worth taking the time to get comfortable here.

    Hi Brent, Just wondering if this is still in effect? I chose the $35.00 option about 2 weeks ago, paid through paypal, 11/16 and nothing has happened? Thanks Kipper

    Hey Tom, don't give up I haven't and know that I too have trouble navigating the forum. Pretty sure everyone was "New" at one time. Its kinda trial and error. I don't find the ads annoying..... I'm old too
