Auto expire Subscribers (was) broke


Recommended Posts

Um. I bought a Tier 2 subscription update when it was launched; the subscription was to be valid until October 2010.

Just now I received the following email:

Mephistopheles,

I bought upgrade to Sub2, (27 March 2009), and sub1 (29 January 2009) on the promise that the sub2 would merely *extend* our time. Now it seems like I've been shafted from having my sub1 package... I know it's not alot of money and it's technically a donation etc, but I'm poor now and I liked having a yellow badge :(

Thanks alot, but I don't think I'll be subscribing again...

Oh wait, so when we first subscribed it was for a year, not two?

Edit: i'll happily resub if I need to, but I thought Tier 2 meant 2 years?

Yes, for some reason a bunch of subscriptions were set to TWO years, no-one was shafted here.

This probably is another glitch with the upgrade.

Sorry for the inconvenience but its not fair on other subscribers that some were getting two years when everyone else paid for one year.

Anyone that can email me proof that their sub is NOT actually expired please PM me, or email the subscription confirmation at neobond [at] neowin . net

Thanks.

Heres a history, you can see the last transaction for whatever reason was given two years instead of one.. So you haven't lost out at all really.

Not quite. You've given me back Tier 1 when I should be on Tier 2. Your own screenshot shows I was on Tier 2.

EditL you beat me to it and fixed that while I was writing this. Thanks. :)

I tried explaining clearly already, you can see that for whatever reason the period was from 16 Oct 2008 until 16 Oct 2010.. TWO years, this is incorrect, it should be one.. and we are fixing these irregularities.

Um. I purchased a Tier 1 sub on Oct 16, 2008. Upgraded to Tier 2 with the promise of 'buy the upgrade now, get 1 year + the rest of your current sub.'

Are you sure because there is no record of that.. as you can see from the dates It seems you didn't upgrade at all or there would be a record of it..

You were also on staff for a while, are you sure you're not confusing the groups here?

I think Mephistopheles is right.

For example - I subscribed on the 8th June 2008 which would have expired on the 8th June 2009 but on the 26th March 2009 I paid 20 euros to upgrade to Tier 2.

Therefore the promise was to compensate those that upgraded mid-subscription you would extend their tier 2 subscription by the difference of the date of the manual upgrade and the old subscribtion expiry date. Therefore my Tier 2 should expire on the 8th June 2010 (74 days after 26 March 2010) which is what your records show.

He's only going off what he can see. If it was some sort of agreement and not part of the system then... check PM's? But they were all deleted a while back. :shiftyninja:

I'm positive that I upgraded. Check your email - I forwarded you the confirmation of the Tier 1 sub I purchased in 2008 and the upgrade I purchased in March 2009.
