    Hi, I'm new here and sort of confused. In order to view the Grand Prix and Jr. Grand Prix Events and the Kiss and Cry, do you have to by a paying member, or can you be a non-paying member? Because I just joined (non paying) and still can't view those threads. So the only way to view them is to pay?

    Yes. Because of the heavy traffic the board gets during the season the competition forums at that time are only available to those who help support the board. That includes premier members who have a subscription and those who just bought a season pass.

    Thank you WindSpirit. You said during "the season" does that mean next summer I could read them without a subscription or pass?

    The competition forums are all open during the off-season and can be viewed without a pass or a sub.

    I just bought a season pass (my premium membership ran out and I didn't have the money to renew it for a while) - I thought I would be able to see all the event boards but they are still showing up as private for me. Did I not buy the correct thing?

    I went in to purchase a "Season Pass" and it's still reading for the 2010-2011 season. If I renew now, will it automatically be for 2011-2012?

    Thanks.

    Hi Buzz! What a nice present to yourself :cool:

    http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=69854

    1. Enter your User CP (near top left corner of your screen).

    2. Down the left hand column under Miscellaneous enter "Paid Subscriptions"

    3. You are now looking at Available Subscriptions. Once you decide on your preferred subscription choose your currency (pull down menu under cost) and click on order.

    Season Pass will allow you access to the Kiss and Cry and Olympic Forums only.

    Any level of Premium Membership will also allow Kiss and Cry and Olympic Access and also access to the Premium Members section which includes 'Sekret Sources' and the Archives.

    4. Select Payment Method is what you should be seeing at this point. Click on order Using PayPal and away you go (you do NOT need to have a PayPal account, you can just use your credit card at that link).

    Please note that if you use the e-check option on PayPal, your subscription will NOT be processed until the check clears.

    If you require to send a payment by post then PM the following people:

    Prancer for the USA
    Dupa for Canada
    Allezfred for the Eurozone.
    Sharpie for all other.

    Hi, I have enjoyed being a member until encountering a few recent problems. But, by and large, it's been very enjoyable. I am calling it a day on the forum. What do I need to do next? Do I need to formally cancel my membership or do I just allow my membership to expire?

    Many thanks

    Hi,
    I know my membership is going to expire soon but I can't find where to find out when it actually is over. I know I'm just being brain dead. Where do I look to see when I expire? I'm thinking it's really soon!

    Go to UserCP then on the left, down at the bottom is "paid subscriptions." Click on that and you'll find your expiry.

    If you paid by an eCheck it can take between 3 and 5 business days for it to clear.

    I'm assuming it's a credit card and not a debit card. In which case it should have kicked in automatically. I've forwarded your inquiry to Sharpie, she'll look into it.

    Unfortunately, the event is now over and I still can't see the posts. I have not heard from Sharpie.

    SHARPIE may not be available for a bit, so I went ahead and cleared a one year basic sub for you until SHARPIE can look at your transaction.

    For IMMEDIATE Premier Member Access we prefer paypal - Log into your user CP and look at 'Paid Subscriptions' for info.

    For snail mail enquiries PM:

    Prancer in the US (Money Orders only (No Personal Checks) in US Dollars)
    dupa in Canada (Money Orders only (No Personal Checks) in US Dollars)
    AllezFred for the Eurozone (or if you wish to pay via Euros)
    Sharpie for all other.


    THANK YOU TO ALL PREMIER MEMBERS WHO HELP KEEP FSU RUNNING!

    huh? how do i just join?
