    Hi all,

    Sorry I know that price increases are never popular but this is the first across the board increase we have implemented since 2006.

    Therefore between April 14 2013 (7 days from today) and April 30 2013, the subscription prices will change as follows:

    Premier members 2 yearly subscription will rise by $8 USD

    Premier members 1 yearly subscription will rise by $4 USD

    Premier members 6 monthly subscription will rise by $2 USD

    Premier members 3 monthly subscription will rise by $1 USD

    The Season Pass subscription valid until 31st March 2014 for next season will rise from $10 USD to $15 USD to access competition forums. Note, these forums are currently now open to everyone but will be restricted from July 1 2013 as in previous years. (Note all season pass subscriptions bought prior to 20 March 2013 have now ended)

    Rates in other currencies will be updated with the current rates to reflect the change.

    Many thanks for reading and thank you for supporting FSU. Avoid the increases and renew within the next 7 days. :) If you're not due to renew yet and want to take advantage of the current price before the increase, do so and PM me and I will make sure the new subscription is added to your current one without you losing any days of your subscription.

    Other threads on premium membership are available to read elsewhere in this forum.

    It is still by far the absolute cheapest form of entertainment I have. I don't even think about it. I know tons of people who spend more in a week at Tim Hortons :rolleyes: than I do for an entire year for the privilege of having a membership here!:)

    Thanks for the heads up, Sharpie. It's still a bargain, imo.

    It is a great bargain. Can't imagine a competition without FSU.

    Thanks for the warning! I have a question - I was thinking on getting life subscription this year instead of renewing the yearly one, will it increase/be still available?

    I don't understand all the that information... but I'm all in. This is a wonderful "home" and cheap at twice the price!

    Second AxelAnnie's comment - worth every dollar/euro/...

    (How DO you parse "€250 USD"? 250 euros as converted and paid in the equivalent in US dollars? 250 euros or 250 dollars your choice?)

    I will get to your PMs this weekend guys and sort you all out. Sorry, been a mad week,work and giving myself 14 weeks to plan a wedding impedes on my FSU work a bit!

    Prices will probably increase on Sunday too.

    Replied to all outstanding PMS and have now increased the prices. Thanks for your understanding all - Hope it's at least another 7 years before I have to do this again.

    Sorry to do it after the 7 days (which was my minimum notice), it's a case of I have found myself with a spare afternoon and that is rare! LOL
