So what does it cost:
There are two different subscriptions available, monthly and annually.
The monthly subscription costs €7 euro and the annual subscription costs €75 euro.
We are planning to release more additional subscriber only features on our website in the near future. Currently we are thinking about a subscriber only RSS, subscribing to pages, newsletters and more.
Where to subscribe:

When you do not add your username to the subscription form and we can also not find your data in our database we will refund you the money and cancell your subscription! So yes, as a subscriber you need to be logged in to be able to use the subscription services.

In the past we have been forbidden by Bohemia to add donate links from any authors on our pages. This could be explained as if it was allowed to earn money with mods created with the Bohemia Interactive tools. As far as we know nothing has changed, however these days the BI forums are full of donate links (in release/wip topics as well as signatures), not to mention the SWS supported by Bohemia Interactive where people place ported (illegal or not) materials and even there they are allowed to ask for donations.
So, from this day we have decided to also support authors by allowing them to add donate links to the downloadpages here on Armaholic. When you have a paypal or a patreon donation account simply contact us and sent us the links. We will add those to all your content pages.
On your pages you will than find direct donate links! We do not take any money from donations you receive neither do we want that. Any and all donations sent to authors go 100% to those authors!
Content creators subscriber system:
We are also working on a subscriber sytem for content creators.
The project is still being developed, we first wanted to introduce the new newsstream system, once all works perfectly we will fine tune and release the author subscriber feature.
What it means is simple, when you create something and release it you will get a limitted time of free subscription. You will get the exact same features as a paying subscriber, afterall it is your content we are hosting and sharing. Every time you release something new or update your work this will be renewed.
Please note we reserve the right to exclude authors from this system for any reason!
Do not ask when this will be introduced, it will be activated when we are happy with its working and find no further bugs/issues.
When you, as an author, object the subscription system:
Although we hope this is not the case and you will allow us to do this to be able to improve our service which we have provided you and the entire community with for free for many years we understand some of you might have questions about this or maybe even object the Armaholic Subscription system. You can always contact us to talk things over and learn how we use this system to make things better for everyone.
When you really do not like the fact we provide paying subscribers with higher downloadspeeds and in the future their own server to download from, you can inform us and let us know you object our new approach. We will than block your downloadpages from being accessed by the subscriber file server (this module still needs to be written so allow us some time).
This does not block subscribers from downloading your work, it simply means their payment is not valid for your specific work and as such we do not gain additional money with your work. Subscribers will than simply download your work from the public server with the normal member downloadspeed as they would have before being part of the subscribing system.
You are free to dislike our subscription system as how you are free to use our website, our service and our bandwidth. When you do not like the subscription system nobody forces you to use it and you can simply continue using our website as you have done all those years we have made sure you could use it without forcing you to do anything or expecting anything in return.
But when you choose to not support the free service you are enjoying all we ask is that you do not complain about it.
