Premium Membership changes

Hi all...

A couple of things to note:

Premium memberships have increased to $18/yr and $3/mo, but only for those people just subscribing, or renewing an expired premium. Those who have active subscriptions via PayPal will continue to pay $2/mo or $12/yr.

Also,... for quite sometime I have been VERY behind on auditing current premium members... and as a result many people have a Premium, and shouldn't. I am in the process of getting this up-to-date, and as a result.. some folks that haven't paid in awhile are losing their Premium until they renew it.

This process will take a week or two to complete at most. If you know you 'really' have an expired Premium Membership you may want to renew it now.

From this point fwd... this wont be an issue anymore.

Joel

There is a simple way to tell if you're Premium or not... Check to see if you can access Private Messages.... OR... look at one of your posts, under your name and status it should say Premium Member.

If neither are true, you need to renew.

another question about this...my paypal account has changed (or something?) and it's asking me to do some sort of verification thing, by getting a code off of my next credit card statement, etc.

I don't remember doing that before, is there an easier way to pay via credit or debit? I wouldn't be surprised if I'm overdue, even though I'm still premium, and I'd like to pay up if I can figure out how.

Uhm.... that 'code' thing is just part of how paypal verifies your credit card if you added or changed one.

PayPal is the only credit/debit method of payment that we accept.

ok, I guess I can't update my membership until next month when I get my next credit card statement then. I was just wondering if there was a quicker way to do that.

most credit card statements are available online.

Also, I'm fairly sure paypal doesnt require that to make a payment. Have you tried?

And I'm pretty sure you can just call your CC company and get the code that way.

yeah, I tried earlier and I just thought it was weird because I've used paypal before without doing that, including the last time I paid for my membership here. I don't know, I'm at work so I'll mess around with it more when I get home. Thanks for the info.

Well, up until I posted in the this forum asking how to tell I was premium. Now I'm not. It says I have to pay the whole $18 to renew? How was I suppose to know I was overdue when it just renewed automatically before?

IF you were subscribed via PayPal it would have automatically renewed if your credit card on file was still valid/didnt expire, your bank account information was valid, etc. From the looks of it, you haven't been subscribed via PayPal. Perhaps you had sent it via mail.

Well, I renewed it. Sort of hesistantly. I dont quite agree that others get to pay the lower older rate simply because you didnt get to check their subscriptions yet. I had no idea mine had lapsed. I paid by Paypal previously but I only used that account for this period. Appears my credit card expiration needed to be changed. Obviously I thought it was ok and still going through though as I was still Premium. So I pay extra while others benefit from you not getting to theirs yet.

Oh well, yet another in a long line of things I guess..........
