### T

#### tier

This is short for "tier of service." Memberships at IAA are divided into tiers, with each tier containing all the benefits of the tiers below it while adding new ones.

"Benefits" means:
What types of actions you can perform,
What types of information you can access.

The current tiers are:
Guest (T1, free, may require guest login)
Active Member (T3, $10/month, login required) Interactive Member (T4,$20/month, login required)

You can subscribe to one of the paid tiers at Stanley Jordan's Pateron site.

The current tier groups are:

T1 (guest) or higher
T2 (observer) or higher
T3 (active) or higher
T4 (interactive) or higher
