Is there a way to remind subscribers that they are close to renewal date, so they won't get momentarily flummoxed when they see the Amazon banner asserting itself?

Sorry, the subscriptions are automated via Paypal.

Being flummoxed every now and then is probably a good thing. I think a regular flummoxing is a healthy thing. I try to flummox my kids and wife regularly.  Also work colleagues. I'm pretty sure I succeed.

If you want a chance at avoiding flummoxing, I recommend you tick the "Make subscription recurring" for automated renewals. (Even then, there is sometimes a few hours (of flummoxing) when the old subscription lapses and the new one kicks in).

cheers, and thanks for your ongoing support

Rob

I'd like to support the site, but I for one enjoy the advertisements. They're not obtrusive, and how am I supposed to know about all the new items coming out without them? There sure as hell aren't any record stores around here for me to go to anymore! Advertisements work, that's why they do them. It would be more of a detriment to not see the ads with this type of subject matter then to have the "privilege" of not seeing them.

Hey Rob, didn't subscriptions used to auto-renew? I just found out mine lapsed because ads started popping up.

EDIT: I'm a dope. This was discussed in the posts just above mine. Time to go renew. But mine automatically renewed from 2007-today, so I was surprised when that stopped.

Hmm...I'm more financially stable now...maybe I can up to a higher category!

EDIT II: hahahahaha, after 9 years subscribing, my PM box is now 1,048% full.

UPDATE

Hey Rob,
GMG says my subscription ended on Sept 20 and that I'm no longer enrolled.

On the other hand, PayPal says it automatically transferred a $50 subscription payment to you on Sept 21.

Please help!

Brian, I am not certain how often Rob checks in. It might be an idea to PM him.

Cheers,


Mike
