Sign up, Step 1

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of our wonderful family.  Before you sign up, however, there are some things we should go over.  By signing up, you agree to the rules below (in the very big and ugly box).  These rules are consistent throughout the site and are easily accessible via the forums.

If you were a previous member on F3, please visit the RENEWAL page first.  If you do NOT see your name/username on that page, please contact us FIRST before you sign up OR include a note on the actual signup form with your old F3 username.  You can have a new username, if you want, or we can give you your old account.  We just want to make sure that you still have all of your original posts and post counts.

ALSO, and this is VERY important, you MUST be using the latest version of Netscape 6.x or higher, IE 5.02 or higher, Opera 6.x or higher, Mozilla 1.3 or higher, or any browser with XHTML/CSS2 capabilities.  If you're not, you will not be able to view the entire site correctly.  In order to keep the site updated and easily searchable via search engines, we've had to employ some of the latest technology available so that we can present the content to search engine robots easily.  If you're unsure of what browser you have, take a quick peek at TheRealms.Net's SysInfo page to get an idea of your browser type. This opens into a new window.

By clicking on any of the links/images below, you signify that you agree to the rules (on the left) and that you will follow them.  We reserve the right to adjust the rules as needed, with or without notice.  I'm not saying that we will, but that we may occasionally adjust the rules to make sure that everyone's having a fun time here, and that the rules are unilaterally fair for everyone.  In most cases, we WILL let you know before hand.

If you're signing up and paying for your membership with PayPal, please select the appropriate link below.  This is the preferred way of signing up, it's quick and easy. 

The first link is a 1 year membership via PayPal.  This gives you 365 days of access to all of the member's sections within our Fractured Frugal Friends community.  This membership is $12.50 per year.

The second and third links are a 2 year membership or a 1+1 membership via PayPal.  What we mean by a 1+1 membership is that you get a 1 year membership for yourself, and a 1 year membership for someone else (could be your friend, family, etc) or a sponsorship (can be known or anonymous).  We have several members that have opted for this one, out of the kindness of their hearts.  Both of these are $20.00.

The fourth link is a 1 year membership via Check/Money Order.  Due to systematic abuse of us trusting people to send in their payments, we've had to hold off on activating any check/money order accounts until we receive payment.  You will have 10 days to have your payment sent into us, otherwise we will delete your pending application to our site.  You will also receive our mailing address on the notification email we send to you, please print that out and include it with your payment.  Please ensure that your email address IS correct!

To sign up for a 1 year membership via PayPal, click HERE.
To sign up for a 2 year membership via PayPal, click HERE.
To sign up for a 1+1 membership via PayPal, click HERE.
To sign up for a 1 year membership via Check/Money Order, click HERE.

For the three PayPal options, if you are not redirected back to our site for any reason after making your PayPal payment, please come back to and select "Join Us" and then go to Sign Up Step 2 and fill out that form.  As always, if you have ANY questions, please use the "Contact Us" link under "About Us" to send any questions in.  We'll get right back to you ASAP!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of our wonderful family here.  We're looking forward to welcoming you soon!
