Would you like to remove the Google Ads from OrchidBoard posts? Now you can ! Instead of a DONATE button, like on every other forum, we've decided that it would be much better and cooler to actually give loyal forum supporters something in return.

OrchidBoard is and always will be free, however running OrchidBoard costs money, especially now that we've moved to a faster dedicated server and we get visited by hundreds of thousands of visitors per month.

Thus far OB has mainly been funded from my own pocket and supplemented with some sponsored advertising and google ads. Monthly dues for hosting and equipment costs now put a major dent in my budget and annual OB related expenses are now measured in thousands and not hundreds.

If you would like to support the growth and development of OrchidBoard, please become a Forum Supporter. As such, you will not only be actively aiding in continuing OrchidBoard growth, but you'll also be able to enjoy some additional perks:
  • Symbol next to your name in recognition of your generosity
  • No Google Ads in between posts
  • Double the Gallery Space
  • Access to special VIP Lounge (Visible only to Supporting Members)
  • Ability to set custom titles
  • Unlimited Private Messages
  • Ability to see invisible users
  • Larger avatars (120x120)
  • Can open and close own threads
  • Can move own threads
  • Can send Private Messages to 25 members at once
  • Can View what other members are reading on the forum
  • Increased Profile Picture size from 100x100 to 160x160
  • No Limit on number of attachments (normally 50MB)
  • More to come



This list will grow as functionality is added.

To become a Supporting Member, click HERE

Fee Structure:


NOTE: 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 1 year are all one time contributions. $9 is a recurring monthly contribution. For the super generous there's also a $19/month option. Since OB is an international site, you can contribute at your comfortable level in the currency of your preference.

by the way, you DO NOT need to have a PayPal Account. You can just check out with a credit card.

Big Thanks to all members that upgraded their accounts in order to support Orchid Board !!! Your loyal support and generosity is truly appreciated. OrchidBoard cannot continue to grow without you !!!
