Status Change?

I’d like to change my status in order to advertise in the marketplace forum. How can I do this? Thanks!

Being able to post in the marketplace is one of the benefits of becoming a paid member here. This benefit is not available to guests.

To purchase a membership, click on the upper left where it says User CP (user control panel). From there, scroll down and click Paid Subscriptions (towards the bottom on the left side). This should bring you to the available subscriptions. Click on the drop down menu under the Straight Dope Board Membership section and choose 1 year or 2 years and follow the on-screen prompts from there.
