SALUTE THE SOLUTION!

You can finally support RC SCENE with a subscription or donation.


Setting yet another world record by having created the first ever very popular site that discusses NPS / RC vendors but nonetheless makes a loss because I told you I am not corrupt has successfully been achieved.

I spent working more than 2,000 hours for free and at your service. Now, I am officially out of money. I have less than the woman begging on the other side of the street who I give 5 or 20 from time to time. I am not kidding.

I do not plan to end up in a homeless shelter, of course. I have scripts and ideas prepared, actually. However, if nobody should care about RC SCENE, or, even worse, still refuse to accept that I am for real when I tell you that this is the only project of its kind, because not lying to you, then the rock won’t stop, because you can’t stop the rock, and bouncing to those beats Bob Villain rhymes is fun;

Still, arguing with Kino over whether to fight the Chinese Triads on Wednesday or better wait for and save money with a last-minute ticket opportunity, while hoping somebody might someday maybe donate 2 USD sure was fun, but I am none of those bored soccer moms blogging about food: Whatever I do better pays for food.

Just in case: Yes, flying Iceland to CA is almost as expensive as LA Shanghai (we landed at PVG and rented a DIY-rickshaw). Those bonus miles are a scam if you asked me. 650,000 Icelandair cashback bonus miles qualify for a 25% discount when buying a reindeer and two lawn mowers at Costco Wholesale hypermarket. For what Costco charges per reindeer, I can get 20 giraffes at Krónan and they will gladly add a lawn mower for free. Also, reindeer are notorious drunks whereas freshly ground giraffe sells like hot cakes in Canada, where they obviously never have seen actual Cocaine before, and would not even complain when I sometimes, by accident, ship cutting agent only with not even traces of giraffe in the slightly underweight bags because Krónan can hardly keep up with the demand for giraffe. If you live here and want high, you go with giraffe.


Friends with active subscriptions please make sure to “Log in”. There could be additional content waiting for you.


How does it work?

  • With a subscription, you not only support very few idealists (currently with 5 USD per month or 36 USD per year) but may also expect access to exclusive bonus content either via email or in the form of additional content here on the site that is hidden for everyone else.

  • Please note that I cannot promise there would be any updates or new content whatsoever added ever. Of course, I plan to offer bonus content exclusively available to subscribers.


    Allow me to remind you that RC SCENE is not-for-profit.
    Rest assured you will help an original idea happen/survive with your subscription and not by accident make anyone.

    THANK YOU for sticking with RC SCENE! 🙂

FAQ

  • What is the Login button for?
    [ A technical issue that would render different content with monthly and yearly subscriptions is currently being investigated and will be resolved soon. That includes the login buttons. ]

    Pages/Articles that show (slightly) different content to visitors and subscribers always contain a Login/Logout link. You need to be logged in to see the bonus content for subscribers only.

    An example: If you subscribed on your desktop computer you are not automatically logged in on your mobile. The Login link asks for your wordpress.com/Gravatar credentials and makes sure you see the content for subscribers also on your mobile.

    Monthly subscriptions are 5 USD now. Don’t get me wrong: I do not want you to send me 60 USD a year. The yearly subscription plan is still 36 USD.

    My problem is that WordPress does not offer an opion to address all and any subscribers. This means I have to create bonus content pages two or even three times – every time – so all of you can access them.

    That sucks big time and I told them but it won’t be consdered an issue within the next two years.

    While I do not want to hide anything anyway, but also learnt that you prefer to buy something over donating for something, and that not too have an idea of how expensive this thing here is, I’d like to direct you into yearly subscription plans, please. Would make things a lot easier on my side.

    You can always demand a refund. Your partner is Automattic but their partner is Stripe and Stripe has a contract with me meanining I can send you a (partly) refund eight days a week.

    Happy days!

    I’m rx’ed and would like to know where I should be looking for any new news on the frontier. Of any kind. Not pressing for a source mote like a community or info

    1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

      Reddit is usually a good place to discuss prescription meds, tobacco, headphons, headlines, countries, wars, and whatever. I recommend to avoid Discord chat rooms.

      https://quora.com is less obsessed by promoting substance abuse and prostitution, but a more mature and more entertaining community.

      If by frontier you mean NPS-related news, the trimbos.nl newsletter could be interesting. Also, I find Twitter a good resource. Maybe pick a few accounts from this list https://twitter.com/rc_scene/following/. Once you follow three or four accounts Twitter will recommend similar accounts to follow.

      I am sorry that no news was published lately. I worked quite a while on a newsletter prototype, but couldn’t send it yet, and didn’t feel like posting something I had planned for the newsletter here. That is hard to explain, but to me these news feel like they did not belong here… 😉

      Hi,

      Do not post your comments off-topic. Thank you.

      Thank you for your generous support!

      Please mind that the vendor has a page dedicated to discussing any issues with them. I believe the email address to get in touch with them is mentioned in the comments section and on the vendor’s site ( = the web shop).

      Make sure not to delete your correspondence with the vendor, and to have your payment receipts, etc. at hands.

      In general, I consider this vendor still a vendor, and not a scammer.

      A scammer needs to be reported to the police.
      Some payment interfaces allow claiming a refund. Could be a BTC payment interface, maybe your bank; Credit Cards are usually insured against fraud.

      With a vendor, we wait for 30 days, then send them a reminder and contact these folks which will try to reach the vendor for you: https://ec.europa.eu/info/policies/consumers/consumer-protection-policy/our-partners-consumer-issues/national-consumer-bodies_en

      I recommend talking to them before providing them with details.

      You either provide them details about your complaint via email or can use this form:
      https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=EN

      If they can’t reach the vendor, we have a scam which we report to the police.

      Please note: This is all theory. If the payment interface says you can demand a refund for 14 days the longest, then you won’t wait for 30 days, of course!

      The payment interface would definitely be my first choice if a vendor ignored my emails.

      With a subscription, you will receive an email as soon as the article describing my findings is ready.

      Again, thank you for your generous support, much appreciated! 🙂

    Great idea! It should help.

    1. Trusted RC Shops Avatar

      If all 250,000 of you should send 3 USD this year, then we will be fine for quite a while 😉

      That is not likely to happen, though.

      While those 36 per year I hope to find appealing to friends who value that we are independent, honest and fair (I know, many have still not realized) so to cover the costs for a team of three,

      Vendors who want something will have to cover the costs for producing articles, etc.

      I hope we can register an NPO which could help with fundraising for side-projects.

      Finally, I hope to win one or two media partners every year.

      IT licenses and three or four workers a quite big production actually.

      The alernative would be selling you to scammers like other forums do – so there is no alternative.

      THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE SUBSCRIBED ALREADY!

      I prefer the subscription model over one-time donations because the costs are recurring. I hope this helps you understand what we do here.

      PS: The 36 USD yearly would be very helpful because I started with less than nothing into this year, meaning I need money upfront, that’s my mistake, I am sorry.

      Don’t worry about the subscription model:

      If you get billed 36 USD next year but have found a better hobby or maybe have no money => Just contact me, you will of course be refunded! This is RC SCENE. I would never try to trick you into something.

      Kind regards,
      René

    Ad Donations/Supporting us:

    Friends who like the idea and want to help RC SCNE keep alive find 2 subscription plans now:

    3 USD for a month or 36 USD for a year.

    Those of you who sent 5 USD for a month will find a 2 USD refund on their credit card statements no later than in ten days.

    I believe the 3 USD to be more than fair also for everyone is new here.
    Those of you who know what we do here, ideally go with the 36 for a year, thank you!

    Kind regards,
    René

      yo, you guys need to add Euro currency for a donation option. You guys saved my ass twice so I wanna help for at least a couple of months. I can’t more cuz I am dirt poor but everybody’s gotta start somehow

        Hi,

        Thank you. 🙂

        It does not matter if your card says CHF, USD, EUR, or Pound of Antonio’s Flesh (only in Denmark… Someone please get me out of here!) – you get billed exactly what it says here.

        There are little fees for currency conversion, but only on my side. 😉

        If you have no money for food, please do not send what is not there to posh websites like this one.

        Have you heard about Ukraine?

        While Unicef is a good option, the city of Austria doubles all donations made to Nachbar in Not (the sky is the limit; they are bound to neutrality and must not send weapons, so they send more money). You donate 36 to Nachbar in Not, the city of Austria doubles up your donation, and these 72 are distributed among the Red Cross, Unicef, etc.

        Have a happy day!
