    Mine says:
    "Your paid sub expires: 2011-08-24 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time.
    You'll receive a renewal notice approximately four weeks prior to that date."

    In this post, Brian says that "All Mods, VIPs, etc., are receiving the paid version at no charge indefinitely."

    I guess that you are more "indefinite" than I am.

    Is this related to an issue with the Lounge?

    I don't think post in Scuttlebutt need to be related to an issue with the Lounge ...do they?

    1. This was posted in SCUTTLEBUTT Forum.

    2.Leif is pointing out an obvious "goof" in the WS Newsletter subscription date.

    3.But Rebel quotes Brian saying: " In this post, Brian says that "All Mods, VIPs, etc., are receiving the paid version at no charge indefinitely."

    Take your choice.

    BTW, I got this trying to upload a smilie. Error The server returned an error during upload ???

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob, John & Jon,
    This thread was originally posted in Lounge Matters, hence Tony's question. I assume that Tony moved it to Scutt before you three read it or made your posts.

    But surely if that had been done, there would have been a Note to indicate that a move had taken place?

    I see a Move notice in the Lounge Matters Forum, and Tony's question in the thread explains why - this isn't a Lounge Matters issue. It could be argued it's a WS Columns issue though...

    Well, no. I did hover between Lounge Matters and Scuttlebutt, but decided I'd take the risk on LM as it probably ought to be brought to the attention of the WS Administration.
    (Yes, I could have used the contacts on the Contact an Administrator page but... :shrug

    So if 2208 is the definition of infinity, then should I leave this in my will so that future generations won't be so shocked when it happens?

    What's scarier is the little note above this that states "You can make 50 more posts today." So what happens at #51? Do the WSL police break down my door and confiscate my machine? Or does Lex slap me? Just wondering.....

    The 50 post limit is discussed in this thread.
