What is TMF+?
TMF+ was devised after many members expressed an interest in helping with the upkeep of the forum by way of donations. We were really touched by the offers, but we wanted to be able to offer some way of thanks for each donation given, so TMF+ was born. The idea behind it is that for just £5.00 a year, you can access discounts with the best companies in the Mini scene, basically at least one company to help with every aspect of owning a Mini; from repairing and maintaining it, to modifying, to getting it featured in a magazine to insuring it. We really do think that we've come up with something quite special.

What happens once I've paid for the subscription?
You'll automatically be placed in the TMF+ usergroup. This will give you access to the TMF+ section which details which discounts are available, and how to get them. You'll also automatically receive increased upload space and increased PM storage space. Once the transaction has gone through you'll be assigned a TMF+ subscription number. Once you have access to the TMF+ area you can start using your discounts almost immediately. For your Membership number please PM Minimadjonesy and he will provide it to you when he does the admin for TMF+ on the next friday. Should you require a TMF+ subscription card to confirm your membership with any companies then again PM Minimadjonesy and one will be provided electronically.

Can I still get the 5% discount with Minispares?

- If you've already the 5% discount setup on your Minispares account then you will still be able to use that. However, no more 5% discounts will be added to accounts. From now on you will have to subscribe to TMF+ in order to gain a discount with Minispares. (not available at the Midlands store)

What if I don't want to subscribe, will anything on the forum change?
No, no existing sections will be disappearing into the TMF+ section, nor will there be an exclusive chat section you can't get to if you don't wish to subscribe to TMF+.

I don't want to pay for the admin to go to the Bahamas, where does my £5.00 go?

- All of the money will be piled back into TMF for the use of the community. Whether it goes to paying for the server and hosting costs, general administration costs or paying for future events, stand equipment and supplies, or charity you can rest assured that the money will be put towards the betterment of the forum and the members.

Does my TMF+ subscription last forever?

- No, one subscription lasts for 12 months.

Can I cancel my subscription before the 12 months is up?

- You certainly can, however the £5.00 paid for the subscription is non-refundable.

I own a company producing top quality Mini products. How do I become part of the scheme?

- At the moment we approach any companies we'd like to involve with TMF+. If you would like to express your interest in becoming affliated with TMF+ please send a PM to Minimadjonesy (Alan)

Please add below any additional questions you have. As time goes by the relevant questions will be incorporated into this FAQ.

I don't get it.

How do you get a discount? What companies are involved already/will be involved? Will there be changes to the forum?

:thumbsup:

Basically, you pay currently £5.00 a year subscription, which gives you access to TMF+. You get a TMF+ membership number which you use to get discounts at the companies we've set up partnetships with. You also get access to more upload space for attachments in posts, and can store more PMs. In addition to that you get access to some more forum 'skins', which basically change all the colours of the forum, logos, etc.

Sorry, I realised about 2 minutes ago we hadn't actually put which companies we've setup discounts with, so here's the list:
  • Mini Spares - 7.5% discount (except Midlands branch)
  • KAD - 5% discount
  • Mini Magazine - 36% discount on a years subscription
  • Specialist Components - 15% discount
  • M Machine - discount varies
  • Minifilms - 10% discount on their own titles
  • Adrian Flux Insurance - 15% discount
  • Sureterm Insurance - 15% discount
  • More discounts on their way!

Even if our £10's do go towards the admin jetting off to the Bahamas, I would still support it - they probably deserve a good holiday having to keep everyone on here in order :thumbsup:

You won't be able to claim discounts for any policies or orders that have already gone through, sorry.

Well, if it wasn't for this forum, I'd still be driving around in a deathtrap... my knowledge of Minis would be still as much as a year ago (nothing :lol: )... I wouldn't know all the great people I know from here...

So yes I'm subscribing now :lol: and encourage anyone who appreciates the existence of TMF to subscribe too! :)
