My turn,
L2 is BIG! Its senior members are remarkably adept and dedicated. The community at large is really talented at gathering intel and scoops from the prime movers in space flight. This includes the international space flight community as well. I can depend on well vetted information being accurate and, if needed, simplified. L2 is polite and tolerant of, “easy,” questions. At the same time, if you want to dive into an RD-180 turbo pump, you have also come to the right place. If you are not familiar with what’s going on in spaceflight but want to know, I know of no other, “better place.”
Your account is well managed, and the customer service is personal and nearly instantaneous. I signed up for two months to give it a try. I am more than impressed with both the breadth of content and the membership. I will be switching to an annual membership shortly.

I can't agree more! :)
After about half a year on the treasure trove called L2 I have only barely scratched the surface of all the information.

And the early and in-depth information from the community and industry people is sometimes just jaw-dropping.

So if you need any excuse to support the site and make it even better, that should be it. Well, that, or NSF's excellent coverage at press conferences which are also at least in part paid from the same L2 support fee...

I grew up during the Space Age with Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo and never learned as much about the Space industry in all the decades as what NSFC has provided in the past years. The main site is wonderful and L2 is amazing.

Plus, the people. Insights and viewpoints from around the world. The BTDTs (Been There, Done That) have enlarged my world. People like Jim have made me more thoughtful and less reactive.

I am more excited now than Sputnik, than Yuri, than the Mercury 7, the Twins, and the Moon. I feel hope for more to come past LEO and more to come with cooperation around the world.

L2 has grown my world and my hope for the world.

Thank You Chris for all the work to make this happen.

I'd like to say how much I've loved been in L2 for the past four years and for my student L2 scholarship sponsor Martin FL getting me in while I was studying. No longer a student, but still love L2 and happy to support the site. I would like the pay it forward and sponsor a student now I have disposable income and wonder if we could do a new round?

That's awesome. I have been meaning to do a new round and I can't believe it's been that long since the last, so I'll get on it and see if it's viable. After all, it's relying on people's generosity again and that's something one can never take for granted.

If you think the public areas of this forum are amazing, you owe it to yourself to give L2 a try.  Even if you're just a fan of one program or company, there's more than enough value in a subscription.  There is so much information that Chris has to employ an entire special team of highly-skilled server hamsters to keep things flowing smoothly.  If you don't do it for the amazing information, do it for the hamsters.  Otherwise...well, idle hands and all that...



A hamster mind is a terrible thing to waste.   ;D

I couldn't agree more with what everyone else has said, especially about the L2 "Lifetime" membership!  If it hadn't been for that, there's no way I could have joined!! 

I love everything about it EXCEPT for this one little thing......there needs to be a link for "New Posts Since Last Visit" because it's so difficult for me to keep up with the newer posts to the forum. 

Do you think that's something you could think about adding to the forum, Chris?? 

Thanks,
Tony Trout

Chris,

As I said, I am old.

 :)   What is a "PM" ? 

Some kind of message to you, obviously, but I do not know how to send it.  Maybe this will do ?

Cheers,  Bill Wheaton

Yo, I just paid for a year subscription (been watching Mary feeds for months and live feeds so felt I had to contribute) and haven't gotten access to L2. Please help. Thanks

You make the payment, then send me a message here on the forum via private message (PM - top bar of the menu), saying "Hey, made a payment for X months of L2 with the e-mail address....." and then I check our account and see it and then upgrade you.

Thanx, I understand. Well, new problem, no option to pay with debit or credit card (tried changing country, didn't help)



I really do not want to create paypal account. Is there anything I'm missing here? Is there any other payment option?

This is what it shows. Perhaps your country doesn't allow it?
