I've finally tracked down the issue regarding subscriptions and corrected it.

There should not be any double payment. if something goes wonky, it will be reversed. please contact me. Do not hesitate. I want to get this sorted correctly.

i will be watching the forum/sites side of the ledger to make sure there isn't anything funny going on.

You're asking if I still see ads?  Yes, there's an ad above this as I type.

Yes, my account is not showing up as a Supporter anymore.
Also, as you suggested, I went ahead and stop my recurring PayPal payments and will re-subscribe in April when my current subscription is up.
As always, thanks for the help.

At the top under the Blog Shop Home line, and again (same ad) after the first post.  And I'm kidding, it doesn't bother me.

If you have been helped by the forum and all the amazing work our members have done, please consider a donation to help us continue helping folks like yourself.

While this community provides a way to meet up with other folks to share the joy of conventions, it takes a lot of time and energy to put together the buying groups as well as the hotel exchange documents and forms, in addition to maintaining the threads and forum areas.  There are also expenses that go with this venture, including hosting fees, outlays for lanyards, marketing to expand the community, etc.  Many plans for back-end improvements are in progress, which could potentially provide a more robust environment for the badge buying groups and the like.   

We would gladly appreciate your support as we strive to plan for the needs of the community going forward.



There are currently four ways of helping:
[1] a regular monthly donation via Patreon.com: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
[2] a donation through the forum's subscription portal:
     Go to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions
[3] a donation through PayPal without incentives: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
     If you just want to donate any amount (and aren't interested in the lanyard or ad-free option), this is the option for you.


Currently, the incentive options are:

Donate $20.00 USD and get no ads on the forum for 6 months.
*Please use the forum's subscription portal by going to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions.

Donate $40.00 USD and get no ads for 12 months.
*Please use the forum's subscription portal by going to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions.

Donate $50.00 USD and get no ads for 12 months, plus a complimentary (free!) Friends of Comic Con lanyard shipped to your door.
*The lanyard is a $12.00 USD value!
*Please use PayPal (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) and include your preferred shipping address in the "Notes" box.




Regardless of the incentives, any and all donations are gratefully accepted!

Thank you so much for your contribution and support to our wonderful community!
As so many have recently stated, no thank you is sufficient for all the time and dedication the core FoCC team has applied to creating this terrific forum.

I am not much good for helping out on the technical side of the forum, but I GLADLY just renewed my subscription!!  Hope that helps in some way!

Keep up the fantastic work!!

Done!  I'm good for a year, although the PayPal didn't allow for adding a note in the transaction.
