Almost exactly one year ago, we published one of the bleakest updates on our industry we’ve ever written. A few weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic, the motorsports world was frozen, and institutions we’d always known seemed to be circling the drain.

That included our own company.

As a…

I normally hate the idea of website subscriptions, but there's no question in my mind that GRM is worth supporting financially. Even if you ignore the fantastic dead trees you guys send me monthly, the community and knowledge base you've created online is well worth the price of a large coffee every month. 
I'm looking forward to being a part of whatever coolness this becomes.

Loving that I can still have ample opportunity to support. Just went to get the subscription to GRM+ however and my webpage returned an error:

 

{"error": "get() returned more than one User -- it returned 2! It is possible you share an email with more than one account, which is not supported"}

 

Not sure how to recitfy, but once it is I'll be right back in line!

I'll add the + later today, but are you ending the Patreon thing?  So that will stop all by itself?

BTW, the ads here are not bad at all, so will there be a way to keep more ads so that you guys can get a few more pennies from my looking around?  Whatever ad system you use, it has a fraction of the effect of other pages, so it's not bad.  

Done

This should be fixed. You might have to log out and then log in again for the fix to take effect.

Yes, Patreon is on its way out. We'll be shutting it off later today. There doesn't appear to be a way to retain our ability to message Patreon people without also charging them, so this way they'll have a day to read our post announcing GRM+.

At this point, we're more focused on launching the program, squishing bugs, and thinking of other cool stuff we could add, and less focused on more precise control over showing more ads to GRM+ members. We want you all to have the best experience possible.

Sounds good.  I'll bring up letting the ads run in a few months when things are smooth.

I fully intend to subscribe to GRM+ and support the GRM world in every way possible, but just to clarify...

Does this mean that the Dead Tree format is going away?

Oh absolutely not. The print magazine is still growing and here to stay. This just means we might be able make the website make financial sense someday.

I think us Florida residents should get GRM++ since we have to pay 21 cents more.

That's to subsidize the convenience of having the Challenge in your own neighborhood.

I don't typically go for these types of things, but I will totally be supporting this! I was super worried when you guys sent the distress call in 2020 and, like many others, hurried to support GRM. Thanks for all the awesome content and the continued support of this awesome automotive forum!

I had a yellow box and "GRM+" for a moment and now it's gone.  How will people know I'm cool now?

Sorry about that! Looks like you and Stampie both had that happen. We're fixing it now.
