    We're making a slight change on the monthly recurring supporting membership fee, increasing the price from $4/month to $5/month on Sept 1st. Folks with current active monthly subscriptions will not see any change, only new sign-ups.

    The one dollar difference is minor, and is to help cover the cost of time spent on customer service related to the monthly recurring sub offering (it's a lot of time, a lot of paypal disputes, and a lot of refund demands from folks who forget to cancel), as well as the high paypal fee ratio (because of per-transaction fees, 11% of the $4 payment goes to paypal, vs only 3.9% of a $30 yearly sub payment). At some point in the future we may go back to annual-only subscriptions. But we'll stick with it for now and keep offering the monthly recurring sub :)

    All annual subscriptions, gold subscriptions, and commercial sales licenses remain the same.

    And again, current active monthly recurring subscriptions will stay at $4, unless cancelled.
