Usually, logging out and back in is sufficient. Sometimes you need to clear cache and cookies.
Your account is showing the red banner. I presume this has resolved itself, yes?
BTW, anyone with an account problem, whether related to subscription or anything else, is asked to pm me, here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don't start a thread, or, worse, bury a post in an existing thread, even this one. I probably won't see it. I only saw this one because someone reported vinylisfinal's post.
Thanks for the support.
Bump for those looking for info on subscribing. Thanks
Subscribed! Thanks for providing this forum. It has already been of help to me and I'm just getting started!
Hey- I am planning to re-up online for the first time (I always had sent in checks in the past).
However, I am now wondering- is it possible to pay online with a M/C, if I don't have a Paypal account myself?
Also, are we still at the couple hours warning when the subscription expires? Fortunately, mine expires on a Sunday, when I can probably be on it pretty readily...
If I remember correctly, you don't need a PayPal account to send $, only to receive it.
Having trouble renewing my subscription, if I go under my Account Upgrades I do not find anything that says Subscriptions.
Excellent investment, superb site, great group!! I'm in.......
Just a couple of words to our subscribers
Thanks, very much, for the support.
The Account Upgrades section of your profile panel holds the renewal link, but it does not appear until very close to your expiry time. Think hours rather than days. (Yeah, I know, but I haven't found any way to extend the time. Yet.)
Re-upped, would like to regain access to Barter Town. I need to thin the herd due to recent flood-related damage to my house. No equipment lost, just need to pay fro very expensive damage that my insurance won't cover. Would rather sell yo a fellow AK'er than to some Flea bay flipper.
Let me know what you have
There may be improvements in xenForo 2.0 in that department (which should be rolled out later this year). If not, it might be a good thing for the suggestion box. I'll have to remember to take a look.
I re-upped in March, I think. I'm good for a while now.
My subscription ended today - just a little while ago in fact. I did renew once I saw that my subscription had expired. HOWEVER -
1. I never received any sort of notice that it was about to expire; and
2. I was not able to renew in advance, not even an hour or so.
A renewal link never appeared for me - until after my account had expired.
I was checking every hour or so this evening. No renewal link before expiration. Didn't happen.
I hate to complain, but I find this to be rather frustrating.
First, thanks for the support.
Second, I don't always see the same AK as a regular member, or subscriber. My Account upgrades link tells me, to the minute, when my subscription expires. Does it do the same for you? Either through the start time, or the end time?
It did tell me, to the minute, when my subscription expired.
I was on here a few times after the expiration time and there was still no link to renew - it just said "Expires Today at 5:45 PM". Finally, after 8:30pm EDT, I checked again and it said my subscription had expired and asked if I wanted to renew.
I just checked, and now it says "Expires: Jun 10, 2018 at 8:55 PM".
Some years ago I prolonged my subscription until February, 2020. However it would be reassuring to know getting a mail timely when my subscription is running out.
I re-subscribed just now, no problems. - except now you have to put up with me for another year.
I will gladly 'put up' with all of your effort and knowledge sharing!
How does one renew before expiration?
The "Account Upgrades" link just says I have another few days remaining.
Must I wait to renew until the subscription expires?
