UPDATE... So much for the positive review for membership renewal.
I HAD it set for an automatic upgrade and it took my money and have since changed it. It was fine yesterday but doesn't work worth a PHuck today. My status disappeared today and I am not offered to see the contributors page anymore. I won't spend another dime on membership until it works properly.
Updated and the system does work as it’s supposed to, the issue is old contributors not stopping their old subscriptions and resubscribing. This ends up with failures to update and then PayPal shuts down out payment notification system and that fucks everyone. The only reasonable solution on my end to fix the issue is to literally nuke everyone’s auto renewal from the PayPal side.

I've jumped through the necessary hoops and still haven't got my contributor status updated. Just about given up hope. Automatic transaction Sept. 6 and did ticket thingy. No love.~ss
Updated, I missed your ticket response with the PayPal info.

I stopped auto renewal and will hopefully remember to do it next year. Will PayPal still work or do we need to use another method to pay?

Thank you for the fix, love is back in the air.

paypal works, it’s just getting older contributors to cancel their old auto-renewals that’s causing the issue. Will likely crop up from time to time (every 2-3 months) due to PayPal errors with old subscriptions

Jen, with all due respect to you. FF, and your current medical issue, can you please arrange a way to make payment other than PayPal or Venmo, both confirmed wholly owned subsidiary of the Chicoms, for us Americans who have chosen to opt out of the program?
I mean literally , I'll mail it to a PO box, a generous contribution.
I just want to give the site money. I love this place. I've been through my own hell in the last few years, but this site has never failed me. Nor have the members.
I want to contribute, just not via a communist run paysite.
Take your time, get well soon, but please direct me on how to contribute. Thank you. God bless you and your family, the Files, and God bless America!

Mine was missing for a long while so you’re definitely not alone with the non-contributor status. It took over a month for me hopefully you get better taken care of

Did you two also submit tickets?

I renewed on 1-17, and submitted a ticket on 1-24. It doesn't look like Jen has been on since then, though.
