To whom it may concern: I love TDPRI and was a lerker for probably 2 years before I finally joined. It was this forum that was largely responsible for my very sucessful builds of a 51 Nocaster and a 54 Strat. About a week or so ago I finally decided that I wanted to show my support and paid for Gold Membership. However, thus far, I have not seen any change to my account status nor the GM ribbon on my posts and threads. I emailed the staff but have received no reply to date. Is there something I need to do to turn this status on, or is there some problem with my payment, or some other technical issue? Any help you can provide me would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.
