    Hey TDPRI,

    I purchased a gold membership a couple of weeks ago, right after the website went kablooey.

    I can see it in my account upgrades but it doesn’t show on my avatar. I’ve used the contact form several times to clarify if there is a problem but no replies.

    Can someone tell me what’s up. I really don’t care about showing the banner but it included entries for the contest and I do want to make sure I enter for them.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Yeah, I don’t want to be a pest but I’d just like a response. Just a hello, yup we’re working on it. It’s not you, it’s us. Your membership upgrade is all good and you’re entered in the contest.

    This is why I don't expect anything from places I donate. I don't expect letters from Save the Children, Don't bother with hats, magazines etc from the NRA.

    If I don't want anything back I don't set myself up for wonder and worry.

    Thought about that for getting chances in the contest. Then thought I really need another guitar like I need a hole in my head.

    I think I'll wait until I see how long this forum survives under new management.

    Well it's encouraging that it's not just me. My guess is that it went through ok but I do want to make sure my entries are in. I'd be more than happy to win a new Telecaster :D

    Per some advice on another thread, I checked my account and my silver supporter status was resolved on 11/2. Or at least it shows my membership is paid through 11/3/19.

    However, my banner doesn't show even though I've checked the box for it to display. I'm really not concerned about the banner - but I'd like for ads to disappear (without me installing adblock or using another browser).

    Last year the ads went away as soon as my made my contribution. I've asked admins if there's anything else I need to do. Still waiting to hear back on that...

    Sorry for the inconvenience. We have fixed the accounts here that did in fact purchase a member upgrade and were not having their banners displayed. You are all in the contest no worries there.

    @dkmw ad free is a separate purchase.

    Thanks for the info - last year I got ad-free with the entry/supporter contribution and figured things were the same. Or maybe I was the benefactor of a lucky-for-me mistake last year:)

    I'm having the same issue. I paid for the account Upgrade : 2018 Silver Membership on 27 oct. I have the Paypal receipt. I hope this doesn't stop my entry in the giveaway.
