How do I join the AFCA?

You can sign up with one of our many membership options depending on your situation.

Visit our Membership Info. page for more details.

How much does a membership in the AFCA cost?

It depends. Memberships are yearly, but we have different membership options for differing situations.

If you want to see the options, visit our Membership Info. page for more details. If you want to see the cost (per year) for those options, choose to sign‐up and then browse the pricing. You won’t be charged unless you choose to pay for a membership and then checkout through our system.

How long does it take to get my username and password after signing up for membership?

Because we are all volunteers, it can take up to a week for us to get your usernames and passwords to you so you can access all areas of the site?

If patience isn’t one of your strong characteristics, you might want to consider purchasing your membership closer to a weekend when most of the new memberships are processed.

Why isn’t my password working?

Your general Website username & password and your forum username & password are different. Are you using the correct username & password?

The username & password for the general Website is printed in the most current issue of the Fan Collector magazine. The username for the forum is unique to only you.

If you cannot remember your username for the forum, contact the Webmaster using the email found on our Contact Us page, and ask for assistance.

Why do my Website pages look all messed-up or why aren’t they loading correctly?

First of all, if you’ve insisted on using Internet Explorer, then I probably can’t help you. Our new Website was written for modern browsers and uses many coding features that are relatively new, and possibly not implemented by older browsers.

We suggest you use only the newest versions of either the Chrome or Firefox browsers as they have been around for a decent amount of time and generally accept many of the newest coding features.

If you are still having trouble viewing the site using these browsers, make sure that you have emptied your cache, deleted your cookies, and refreshed your pages. Also make sure you have Javascript activated in your browser.

How much is my fan worth?

It’s only worth what someone will pay for it.

Different fans are worth different amounts of money to different people.

Generally, the better condition something is in and the more rare it is, the more it will be worth to someone, but this isn’t always the case. Before selling a fan, decide what it’s value is to you and place a price on it for which you would be willing to part with it regardless of what someone else may or may not pay for the fan at the time.
