keep your elite business in your private elite section or maybe via Elite Members Only email ListServs

Every time I see something like this pop-up in the public forum, I can't help but to think about those annoying sales pitchers and all the teasing & pleasing they do to close the sale. Not trying to be rude or anything, but this has happened a lot in the past couple months. We already know it pays to be an elite and there is some cool stuff going on there. Is this teasing really necessary? Maybe the site is in financial trouble?

FusionX, I want to make something very clear and I'm going to do it publicly. It is neither yours, nor any other members place to instruct HP staff as to what and where to post ANYTHING! We post these alerts to inform our elite members of information that they should be immediately aware of. Our elite members have been kind enough to make a donation to our community. The same community that everyone is allowed to enjoy free of charge. It is their donations that keep us up and running and facilitate improvements to our site. The same site that you use FREE OF CHARGE! If, in the future you come across such alerts, AND YOU WILL, I would advize you simply pass it over and move on!
have a nice day! AR

So you don't do it in private messages or emails? Instead tease here?
And relax buddy I wasn't instructing you how to do your job. I was merely stating my personal feelings and even added a happy face at the end to loosen tension.
We are aware that you exist and some of the benefits that come with joining already.
These sales pitches remind me of the church collection baskets.

Have a nice day broski.

Posting in general section is so elite members can see if their is something new happening, just becuz we are EM doesn't mean we check that section all the time, The main section of the forums is the best place to give the heads up to everyone and yes to give some incentives for non elites to upgrade. If they miss out its fine with me more chances for me to join the fun.

Actually, I was quite glad that they posted that there. I just saw it, I might become an elite member now as I do have a bit of spare cash at the moment.

Go to the front page of the website and click on the the "donate button". It's a minimum $25 donation through paypal, but it's well worth it in the long run

I like pina coladas,
passing out candy in the van down by the river,
and long walks in the rain.

True if your new to the site you may not know about the status. If you don'y want to donate, then don't the forum is free but everything has a financial side, even church. If you really appreciate this place and want to give something back (for what you've learned and what you've saved with the discounts) then by all means donate, its surely appreciated. In my year of being on here I've learned more than in all three years of being an enthusiast of the nargile. Not only have I learned so much but I met some amazing people on here. This is a place for people of all walks of life from all over the world that are here because of a common hobby we all share and what info we learn from each others experiences on here we all pass on to newer members and the cycle continues. For me that seems like its worth giving back to and in return for your generousity you get some added benefits. So for an announcement for the people who have given back to this place to be posted in the public section about a special offer I see no problem with it and neither should anybody else. Like somebody said before, if you don't want to look at it then pass on over the thread. Cheers!

I think everyone on this site could pay to be an elite 5 times with the money they've saved with the discounts.
