This is day two of not being able to access the galleries, being constantly reminded that I am not a subscriber, and generally not feeling 'loved' around here.

Please take care of this Sean.

Sorry about that Tim, for some reason around 10% don't kick in like they are supposed to. I'll see if I can find some info on it.

Sean, I wonder if resubscribing before your old subscription expires may be the problem. I noticed that I resubscribed on 1/27, my old subscription didn't run out until 1/31. When it did, the system didn't recognize that I had resubscribed three days earlier. Just an idea.

Same here. I had two subscriptions for a day or two. I suspect that is part of the problem.

Sean -

Another example - my subscription was set to expire on 3 February, so I renewed on 2 Feb, and the subscription status thing indicates that I am in the club through 2 Feb 2007 - but as of this morning I am blocked out of the galleries and get the message that I have been banned to outer kushna for failing to renew.

I don't think my sub has run out, yet I, too, am blocked access.

Same here. No access since the previous subscription end date (2/4/06). The new subscription starting date (2/1/06) has not kicked in yet! :(

The subscription system seems to fail a lot with renewals. They have probably repaired these issues in the new version of the software but there is no way to upgrade to that for a while. I'll see what I can find. Best thing at this point is to use the 'contact us' form (I have added a new option for failed subscriptions). I'll look into those in this thread having problems. Thanks, Sean

I Have the same or similar problem. I first subscribed Feb 5, 2005. I then sent another larger amount in October of 2005. I thought the second would just replace the earlier subscription. My first subscription ran out on the 5th. My subscription status still shows an expiration of October 14, 2006. (one year from my second contribution/subscription). I think I sent the payment in as a subscription. Was it considered a contribution as opposed to a subscription? I had intended it to be for a one year subscription. If you could adjust it that would be great. My wife's current job status will preclude me from re-subscribing before the October date.

My renewal did not appear to have been activated. I renewed before my subscription ran out and I hear that can be a problem. I understand that Sean is away in San Francisco so will not expect this to be fixed right away. I do expect it to be fixed eventually but I'm in no hurray. I just can't post or look at photos right now. No problem, I can wait.

Thanks BWKate; we need more people with your attitude on APUG. I'm sure Sean will fix it as soon as he can.

Kate - pm Sean - he will fix it almost immediately (he fixed mine within a few hours of my PM). He is away, but not out of touch.

If he sees this thread, I am sure he'll fix it as well.

Matt,

Just after I posted my reply I got an email from Sean! He's fixing when he's able to.

Seems to be a common problem, I have the same issue. Exactly the same as Mr. Teague. Nothing to worry about, should be fixed soon.


Thanx!

Sean is to be commended once more. I just completed my annual renewal through PayPal, and as soon as I went back to the forums, my status reflected the change from member to subscriber. Can't get much quicker than that!!!

Logged in today to find I was no longer a subscriber. I checked my old emails and sure enuff, time to renew. Logged in to Paypal and after three tries, came to the conclusion that Paypal hates Firefox... Loaded up IE6 <spits: phwut... wheeeeeeeee... PING!> and all went well.

By the time I'd shut down IE6 <ditto> and came back to the forum in Firefox, I was once more one of the anointed ones ;) .

It would have been useful if the system had emailed me a week or so in advance (the system has my correct email address) but as one of those the system didn't renew properly last year, I was impressed with how quickly it worked this time.

Jolly good show, Bob.

DaveTypical! I'm in the bad graces of every bit of electronic equipment, wherever I go. On Friday, a ticket machine at a short-term car park at Heathrow spat out my perfectly valid credit card (with a distinct sound of mechanical contempt)...

Cheers, Bob.
