At Yuku, we serve advertisements to cover the cost of servers and general maintenance of the platform. You can opt out of seeing ads by making a purchase towards your personal account (Yuku Supporter), or towards a community (Gold Ad-Free Community).
Before deciding to make this purchase, it is important to understand the difference between Yuku Supporter and Gold Ad-Free Community.
With Yuku Supporter you get a personal no-ads account. That means you will not see Yuku ads on any message board or profile page you visit. However, you may occasionally see ads that are served outside of the Yuku advertising platform by board administrators.
What Are The Benefits Of Yuku Supporter?
Ad-free browsing when visiting your favourite Yuku communities. Eleven extra profiles for a total of twelve profiles (great for role-players). Five extra signatures for a total of ten signatures. You can switch between them easily as you post within the communities. 100 MB of image hosting space. Non-Supporters receive only 30 MB. View as few as 10 or as many as 100 topics and replies per page with your supporter account. Sort replies in threads, last post first or first post last. Where allowed by admins, you can view the message boards in an "anonymous" mode that will hide your online status entirely.
By signing up for Yuku Supporter, you also help discussion boards that have enrolled in the Gold Ad-Free Community offering; your visits to Gold Ad-Free boards will not be counted against the Gold Community's ad impression quota.
Can I Purchase Yuku Supporter To Give To A Friend?
Yes you can. Our staff can provide you with a link through which you can purchase supporter for a friend. Simply submit a ticket at support.yuku.com and mention the profile you wish to purchase supporter for.
How Can I Check My Supporter Status?
Log in to Yuku and go to your Account Settings in the forum section.
If I Sign Up As A Yuku Supporter, Can I Upgrade My Level To A Gold Ad-Free Community?
Yuku Supporter is a user-level subscription while Gold Ad-Free Community is a community-level subscription. You will need to pay full price for the Gold Ad-Free Community service.
If I Have More Than One Profile Name, Do I Have To Pay For Yuku Supporter For Each One?
No. Each profile of your account will share your Yuku Supporter status.
What Is The Supporter Promo?
$7.00 for 6 months
$12.00 for 12 months
How Long Does It Take For A Purchase (Supporter Or Gold) To Be Applied?
When using a credit card or PayPal, your purchase will be applied instantly (except for eChecks through PayPal).
How Do We Pay?
Payments can be made using the PayPal Online Payment service. You can make a one-time payment, or you can make automated recurring payments. You can also make credit card payments through PayPal.
Where Do We Pay?
Making a contribution to a community happens at the community itself. You will find a "contribute now" link towards the top left of the communities. Clicking that link will take you to the contribution page. If you do not see a contribute link, it means that the community does not accept contributions. To purchase Yuku Supporter, go to your account. You will find the supporter link in the Forum section of your account settings.
Can I Cancel My Subscription?
If you have a subscription, you can cancel it at any time via your PayPal account.
Can I Get A Refund?
All purchases are final and non-refundable in whole or in part. You may, however, request a transfer of your remaining balance to any Yuku account (for supporter balance) or to any Yuku community (for gold balance).
