    I must be particularly dense. I managed to find the account upgrade page and it tells me that I am a subscriber, and when that status runs out, but can't find any way to renew my subscription now/early. Do I have to wait for my current subscription to run out to be able to renew?

    Thanks, and thanks to the Admins and Mods for running a great site.

    You might have to wait to get closer. I don't know, because I don't always see the same AK as members do. If you have problems renewing, pm me, here, and I will get you sorted out.
    Thanks

    Two questions:
    Is it possible to pay for a subscription for someone else as a Xmas gift?

    Is there an updated list of Subscriber benefits? With the new forum software it appears that some of what's listed in post #1 may now be unavailable, irrelevant, or there may be new features.

    Okay, I have been getting emails from folks who get notified by Paypal that they paid their subscription to AK, but no update to their account.

    "What gives?" you may ask.

    Well, if you had an autorenew set up under the old software, Paypal doesn't know that we changed, and the old link no longer upgrades your account.

    "What do I do?"

    Go into your paypal, under My Money, and head to the My Pre-approved Payments section. Delete the audiokarma pre-approved payment. Audiokarma cannot do this for you. Only you can change your settings in paypal.

    When we get a new autorenew, you will be able to select it, and not worry about your subscription running out.

    As always, if you have any problems with your subscription or any AK account issues, pm me, here, or email me at luvvinvinyl@audiokarma.org Please don't wait, hoping for a miracle of healing. Your account won't fix itself. On the other hand, I want you to have the benefits that your subscription fee covers.

    Thanks for the support.

    Is AK now an all pay site? Do I have to be a subscriber to post? I have posted a couple of items in the last few days and the posts are not showing as being posted.

    Nope and it never will be. Audiokarma is and will remain a free site. What folks are talking about here is upgrading their accounts to subscriber status. You get more "perks" that way.

    I see you have many posts under your profile http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?members/olydan.59703/ Maybe the posts your looking for are there.

    Thanks

    Thanks Grumpy for the reply. I see that I have been able to make a recent post. Must have been a glitch in my computer.

    My subscription runs out on Valentine's Day and I see no way to re up on the page Grumpy linked. I would like to do so while I still have a few dollars. Could someone point me where I need to fo to do this? It sems odd to bug a Mod when you should be able to do so yourself. I was also interested in what a site sponsorship costs if one could afford it, I see no info on how to do it

    Regarding re-subscribing - if you are already a subscriber, I haven't checked whether this has been described before, if it has my apologies.

    When you see that your subscription is soon to expire don't worry, just wait for it to expire, and the system will send you an alert message (the following day in my case) saying one of your account upgrades (!) has expired. Click on the alert, which will automatically launch the Paypal page (if you have this as your payment method I guess?) - then simply follow the instructions for payment on the Paypal site - simple.

    I retained my nice red banner through all of this process :D

    That's been my experience over the years: subscription expires, I'm notified, I (re)subscribe, I am back @ full access and the subscriber's red banner.

    Sure, you might miss a day or two of BAP and BT, but once back in, you find you (usually) didn't miss much (sure, the occasional "interesting" thread that's been locked up), but you can catch up w/ everything that's remained intact.

    We used to get several days notice, but I can't find where to change that in XF. Now the notice is down to a couple of hours, and you only see that if you are watching and waiting for it.
