Just subscribed


I just saw the lifetime option and ponied up.

I'd been meaning to subscribe for a while now, since I get such great info here, and with the LT option, I just had to pull the trigger.

That leads to the inevitable question of will you pro-rate the sub I've bought or should I just wait then do lifetime at re-up time.

I hadn't considered pro-rating, as the concept doesn't really apply in cases where the duration is infinite (ie. whether you wait or do not wait, you will be paying the same price for a lifetime subscription). That said, any member who is a current Contributing Member and would like to upgrade to lifetime can contact me offline and I'll look at each on an individual basis. Thanks again for the support.
