    I put my annual support on a credit card a couple weeks ago but still don't have an avatar? How long does it usually take? I don't want to bother Paul... :)
     
  2. It took me about a week (5-6 days I think) after credit card approval.

    BTW, does Paul send you an e-mail notification about the imminent expiration of the membership?

    Nope, you just show up as "Member" one day. That's fine.
     
  4. I'm gonna put that in the suggestion box.

    I got an email last year, but I don't know if he still sends them.

    Is there a way to find out when our supporting membership expires?
     
  7. I've been told by Paul that it lasts one full year, so if you remember when you got in, you should be able to renew your membership around the same date I suppose.

    Well if you look at the dateline under your Avatar as a clue. It may not be to the day, but it is to the month, so get out the checkbook, find a pen and...

    Phil,

    You may want to check to make sure your hotmail account is still active - that's where your renewal notice was sent before you were bumped back to "member" status, and that's where I sent a request for info after your credit card payment was received 3 weeks ago... Send me a PM and we'll get this worked out.
