I got my member status icon last night. I was very pleasantly surprised to see it. Is this worth an entire new thread? YUP!

Thanks to Monica Kern and all you other guys for putting my mind at ease regarding the little icon. Thanks, too to Bob Muir - I don't know if those emails to Frank helped... I think it was just a matter of time and priority backlog, and whenever administration got around to the next person....

All in all - I'm glad it's here!

Enjoy to beautiful weather - hope it's beautiful weather by you! \:D

Thanks for supporting this site Sharon. Its people like you who have to take up the slack for all the cheap bastards like me who take up all of piano worlds web-space and don't contribute any money!

Maybe I will do something good for this site some day, until then, I am just a cheap-bastard sloth parasite sucking down the web-space posting up my ridiculous home-made songs! :p

Here's a laugh or two for you: \:D \:D \:D

There are lots of different ways of showing support. You get mucho brownie points for being the AB forum ringleader.

p.s. and, no, not THOSE kind of brownies. ;\)

Yeah! Right on. I wasn't in the mood for being a cheap sloth parasite sucking down the web-space posting up my ridiculous antidotes and creations of my mind.... and so I bit the bullet! :p

Bob - I DO agree - the silver goes nicely.

Thanks you guys!

BTW: Bob (Muir) when I get the credit card statement, I'll bring it to Franks attention that I signed up twice. Or maybe I'll just let it ride - for the cause....And I didn't pay only $25 for silver, I paid $40. But really $80. But I like the silver because it goes well with the moonscape. Just talking out loud, really. I've blown money in the past (we all have) - no biggie. (Maybe). We'll see. Like I said - it's a good cause - PW is a rockin place - IMVHO.

\:o I didn't know anything about subscriptions until I read this thread. Thanks, Sharon!

I'm in!

\:D

I like the progressive notation incorporated in the icons.

Man, you got sharp eyes, OperaTenor! I didn't even notice that!

Incidentally, if you go to the MAIN piano forums page, not "our most popular forums," you'll see a forum labelled "For members only" or something like that, and once you go inside you'll see useful information about discounts available to contributing members.

Unfortunately I only discovered that AFTER I had bought my caster cups etc. from the piano supplies site. Oh well.

Ooooh, you mean I can go in there, now? \:D This is almost as good as knowing the secret handshake, or owning the decoder ring! \:D

Thank you for the information, Monica! It never occurred to me about that.

That's because you didn't perform the secret handshake first. ;\)

p.s. sounds like a software glitch? e-mail Frank, maybe.

It might be because your note isn't filled in....

Looking at the main page, the board "for suscribing members only" has the grand total of 3 threads, with a combined total of 9 posts, so they can't be having TOO much fun over there \:\)

(Incidentally, I WOULD suscribe, only I'm pretty broke at the moment, and I think I remember AJB having problems with payment from overseas)

Hey Sharon:

Maybe since you are paying TWICE for your subscription, you could just send a gold membership over my way!

Besides, I'm not a total sloth, I did pay to advertise my M&H "A" in the for sale sections, but that only costs seven bucks or so.

I guess that still does make me sort of a sloth. I really should toss over a few bucks seeing that I have learned so much from this site,and the people are so nice here.

Hey Euan, you should just have Adrian(AJB) pay for your subscription for you.

After all, I hear he's buying Boesendorfer!

:p

From what I've read, its not just a Bosendorfer - he was also eyeing up at Fazioli at the same time! And he drives a Ferrari 575...... \:\)

But I think the issue was that overseas payments couldn't be made. So, short of sticking a $100 bill in the post, we couldn't get to suscribe. I'm not sure - maybe those facts are inaccurate and someone will correct me, but thats the idea thats in my mind at the moment.

Euan.

"And I didn't pay only $25 for silver, I paid $40. But really $80." "Or maybe I'll just let it ride -"

Sharon, It's a subscription right. So you are signed up for two years (or at least you should be). You could make that happen.
Congratulations on your flag!
Mike
