    On average how long does it take to get the permissions of the good member after purchasing them.

    Thanks

    if youre allready a gold member its a renewal not an upgrade so its not intuitive thats the right button.

    Hi Boss. I made a Donation on 4/17/18 because I didn't want to wait until the last minute, but when I look at the upgrade options it still shows my Gold status expiring on 5/31/18. Will it auto update or should I have done something differently?
    Thanks

    I'm contributing $10 per month with an automatic payment. I just got a notification that my Gold status expired...

    Thoughts?

    Guys,
    Please be patient for a few days -- while we work. We had roughly 600 memberships expire at end of May. If people do the general donation (rather than automated Upgrade membership button), everything has to be done manually -- we have to find the donation on PayPal, log the donation in our history (with 7 data fields), go to the Forum admin center, find the account, annotate the account, manually upgrade the account, and set the end date.

    That can take up to 15 minutes (sometimes longer if the Forum name wasn't noted). If 150 guys donate manually, that's potentially 2250 minutes of of work -- 37.5 hours of labor.

    Here is the Upgrade Link to use -- this should accomplish the renewal for you automatically, extending your membership by one year.
