Taken directly from the SCS website, here is some more information about becoming a Fan Club Member...
How does it work?
Each month, members of the Dirty Dozen are given a design challenge. The best of their creations are added to a special gallery that Fan Club members can visit for ideas and inspiration. We announce and open the new gallery on the 15th of each month.
What about the galleries from past months?
As a Fan Club member you have access to every gallery back to July, 2004 when we first launched the Fan Club.
What other benefits are there?
Fan Club members get instant (no approval required) upload privileges in the gallery, and access to a special forum containing templates and instructions for design team projects. (This is one of my favorite perks! :-) )
Will I need another password or something?
No extra passwords or anything complicated. Once you’ve joined, the Dirty Dozen gallery will show up alongside all the other gallery categories. You’ll be able to check out the new additions each month, leave your comments, ask questions, etc. just like any other gallery.
