I renewed my Geekzone subscription recently and I have a receipt from PayPal dated 1/3/23 which shows a 'yearly' billing cycle and next payment due on 1/3/24. 


When logging in today there are ads everywhere and a prompt asking me to subscribe, so it looks like the system only renewed my subscription for a month when it was supposed to be for a year. Is anyone else having the same problem?

The Benign Dictator is probably doing gentleman's hours. Drop him a PM.

It seems to be okay now. The system must have just gone berserk for a brief time.

Fixed now. For a month the subscription code was wrong - I thought I fixed all subs in that period, obviously missed yours. It will happen again on next Feb/Mar renewals (code is fixed but existing year subs contain wrong code).


I can fix it again next year or cancel sub to create a new one later. Something to work on when it happens.
