Please note that we are discontinuing premium memberships and as such, you will not longer be able to purchase Premium status. The members who have already purchased premium memberships are being grandfathered into it as part of a new program that will grant you with certain perks. The original set of benefits were mostly broken or symbolic with the intention being to support this forum anyways so I believe that this is a reasonable offer to most of you.

We will make a further announcement on this once we have everything ready.

Exceptions: Those who filed or will file a PayPal dispute against XYD regarding premium membership will obviously be removed from this membership.

I believe he is saying that if you file a dispute about your RDF Lifetime membership, then you lose the benefits from the new membership (Because you in effect, didn't pay).
oh ok, thank you. I'm good then . Thank you for saying that in monkies lol

It’s possible due to exhaustion the communication may not have been clear as it could be. When @PY004 says, “Those who filed or will file a PayPal dispute against XYD will obviously be removed from this membership.” It sound like he means anyone who files any claim will be removed, which seems a little strange. But @Elcid2015 said he thinks it must be limited to only those who file a claim and seek reimbursement for their premium membership, which would make a lot more sense.

Yes, I think the key word here is "obviously." And that is the only scenario that seems obvious to me.

You'll have to wait a long while without that premium member badge....

Well I paid for a lifetime premium member badge, but rdf just stole my money and never gave me designation.

This happened when we switched over to this new website theme thingy.

There are a lot of changes happening at the moment, you may wish to simply PM @PY004 and hang tight, they are quite busy atm, so I would keep it in your mind and just give them some time to respond to you, and perhaps follow up a bit later.

actually @xydrine before things get settled, if you end up moving on, I am guessing you would perhaps have to verify this? Perhaps it can be handled in PM's or however? I may be wrong.

I will verify whatever I can to the max extent of my ability, and the new Administration will have to make the change to your account.

Provide a PayPal transaction ID and it will be easy to look up.

@holeinthehead I can't PM you, so tagging it is, but xyd is your verifying man, will probably make life easier to get it sorted out with his verification. Just wanted to make sure you saw this

That must have been when we were using chargebee I think, but yeah we've definitely gone through a few payment processors over time.

Anyway glad you got it situated and let me know if you need anything else from me regarding this.

I”ll gladly pay again for another premium membership. The lights don’t stay on all on their own. Maybe we can get a 2x premium member badge
