Burn Unit 2.0

Infogalactic is pleased to announce that it is now possible to join the Burn Unit and support the Planetary Knowledge Core through the Arkhaven store. Three levels of subscription are available, Bronze, Silver, and Gold, and all three come with enhanced features and capabilities on our new SocialGalactic system, to which Alpha access will be announced this week to all Burn Unit and Brainstorm members.

We're also working on providing a coupon to a discounted Burn Unit t-shirt at Crypto.Fashion.

Please note that if you are already a member of the Burn Unit, there is absolutely no need to switch over unless you prefer to use your credit card instead of Paypal. All current members of the Burn Unit will receive the same access to SocialGalactic as the new members.

In answer to anticipated questions, yes, we will soon be able to offer support for the Darkstream and Voxiversity through the Arkhaven store, although I have to see about delivering the promised benefits to the existing supporters before setting that up. We are also working on an Audible-style system of purchasing audiobooks, but that is turning out to be more complicated if we do not wish to have a system that is not entirely manual.

Thank you for your staunch support of the Planetary Knowledge Core. In an age of endless historical revision and SJW memory-holing, we believe it is a vital tool for the preservation of the history and knowledge of Western civilization. Please note that by doing so, you are not only supporting the technology fronts, but are also helping provide strong infrastructural independence to Castalia House and Arkhaven as well.

Nice. I've been using the infogalactic transporter on my phone, tablet and laptop. Wikipedia is now a thing of the past. It's a programming project I would enjoy working on if I could, right now I am very interested in seeing these alternatives develop.

I don't want a discount on my Burn Unit t-shirt.

I want to pay extra for the Gold level t-shirt.

Copy that. We'll come up with something.

Does the Burn Unit get the same amount with both cc and PayPal?

Blogger VD February 05, 2019 9:01 AM  

CC is preferred for several reasons.

Blogger James Dixon February 05, 2019 9:21 AM  

Excellent. This will make it much easier to contribute when I have some spare money, rare though that is.

Blogger James Dixon February 05, 2019 9:22 AM  

Actually, no it doesn't. It only allows for monthly contributions, which I can't work. You should add a one time contribution option.

Blogger Mike MacArthur February 05, 2019 9:56 AM  

Seconding the request for a one-time contribution option.

Re-upped for the Burn Unit. Thank you.

I just cancelled my silver PayPal automatic payment for next month and signed up for gold level on my credit card, so you got a 50% bonus this month.

Looking forward to adding another conversation starter t-shirt to my collection. For those readers who don't have one, the InfoGalactic Burn Unit tees are both good quality and a visually striking design. I get questions every time I wear mine.

Proud to be an Original Galaxian adding my request for a one time donation option.

Re-upped for the Burn Unit. Thank you.

Not at all. Thank you guys.

By the way, there are specific feature options at the three different levels now specified on the store. They won't all be applicable right away, but they will be soon enough. And there will be more benefits too.

Thank you for that. I was going to ask when I hit refresh.

I'll have to go digging in Infogalactic again, because I may have missed it. But if that is not the case it would be really helpful to have tutorials for non-obvious edits. Not just updating existing pages, but creating links across the wiki, and building new pages from scratch.

In boca all lupo!

What is the best way to upgrade from Bronze to Silver? I have wanted for some time to contribute more, but now seems the perfect opportunity.

Blogger doctrev February 05, 2019 6:39 PM  

The credit card page for the Burn Unit is listed as Not Secure when I try logging in with an updated version of Pale Moon. Is that a problem for anyone else?

Blogger VD February 05, 2019 8:10 PM  

What is the best way to upgrade from Bronze to Silver?

1) Buy a Silver subscription with your credit card.
2) Cancel your recurring Paypal payment.

And thank you for your continued support.

I had tried earlier in the week but couldn't get through to pay while at work. So I am home today so I tried the links to support the Burn Unit but ended up with "No products were found matching your selection." Did you take it down already?
