What is the FDL Membership Program?
The Firedoglake Membership Program is our community’s initiative to provide a sustainable, predictable source of revenue to give us the security we need to plan our future. You can become an annual recurring member to give us the financial stability we need to continue to make Firedoglake great.
What are the benefits of becoming a member?
We offer three levels at which you can become an annual member of Firedoglake. Every member receives a personalized membership card, discounts at progressive vendors, access to exclusive FDL chats and planning sessions, and more. Our “Benefactor” and “Gosprey Circle” members also receive benefits that can include t-shirts, tote bags, and access to an annual dinner. Learn more about our membership benefits.
How long will it take to receive my member reward(s)?
Your rewards for membership will arrive within 6-8 weeks of joining the program. If after 4 weeks you have not received an item you are supposed to be rewarded, please contact the membership program by email, email@example.com.
How long does my membership last?
Your membership will last one year and will automatically renew 12-months from the date you joined at the same price.
What is the difference between a MyFDL account and becoming a member?
By registering an account on MyFDL – our diary site and community at Firedoglake – you invest in FDL by contributing the amazing diary posts and insightful comments that keep the site popular, informative and fun. By becoming a member, you invest in our future by weighing in during planning sessions and making annual financial contributions.
Where can I submit suggestions to the membership program?
We want to know your thoughts on membership! Please submit any suggestions for the membership program by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or, you can contact your membership coordinator, who will be in contact with you after you have joined.
Who is Gosprey?
John Phillips Britton, who was known through FDL as ‘Gosprey,’ passed away a year ago. It was his suggestion to have a membership circle, and thus why we have decided to name it after him. He was an avid commenter and a real influence on the shape that FDL holds today. Click here to read Jane Hamsher’s eulogy of Gosprey on Firedoglake.
How can I get more involved with my membership?
There will be many ways to get involved with membership. You will have access to votes for website design, invites to online chats and phone conversations, along with many other features. Continue to follow firedoglake.com each day to see new membership actions.
What does FDL planning mean?
FDL planning is part of the benefits you receive as a member. At FDL, we are constantly changing things to better deliver information to our audience. As a member, you would get to take part in surveys, votes, and contests to help decide what we will do next.
