TST Supporter Membership Cancellations ReadMe

11 posts in this topic

A few of you are sending PMs and I'll be pointing you to this thread for answers.

Last January you'll recall we offered Supporter memberships for a low low price of $19, down from our normal price of $39, though we later settled on $29 and have left it there for quite some time, including for our April Supporter Drive and every other purchase made after about January 20, 2012.

The Supporter memberships were never supposed to be true "subscriptions." It was supposed to be set up so that you paid for one year, and after a year, your membership simply ended. No subscriptions, no tricks, etc. (Oddly enough, given the way it was supposed to work, Huddler [the forum platform we're using] has no capacity to email or PM members when their memberships are about to expire or when they do expire.)

Anyway, they were not supposed to be set up as subscriptions, but they were within PayPal. When these subscriptions automatically renewed, the Huddler software set your new expiration date as January XX, 2014.

So that your memberships would not auto-renew NEXT year too, Huddler canceled everyone's subscription with PayPal, but this had no effect on your expiration date here and you're all still set as Supporters through January XX, 2014. Nothing's been canceled here - you still have another 358 days or whatever.

Here's a screenshot of one such member's status who had this auto-renewal happen:

On the bright side, because you were one of the first people to sign up, you paid only $19 a year ago during the "introductory pricing" offer, and because of this bug, instead of paying $29 you only had to pay $19 to renew! :) So there's a small upside to it, at least.

I apologize for the confusion. Huddler screwed up, or PayPal screwed up, or something.

If you want me to personally verify your expiration date (so you can set a reminder in your calendar to renew next year, perhaps), post here or PM me to ask.

Y'all are fine. I just wanted to let everyone know why they got "cancellation" emails. If the transaction (renewal) went through, you're all set.

We don't need donations. If you want to give something, buy some more ball markers or ball mark repair tools and give them to your friends, and get them to join the site.

As others have said here, at $19, $29 or higher this is a great site and I'm happy to support and be a part of it.

When the divot repair tools are ready, let me know.  I'll place an order.

^^This.

I also got an e-mail; thanks for the explanation!  Love the way y'all run this site.  I'm still waiting for the chance to "member review" Cypress Point, though.

Not available yet. I have to order the divot repair tools. We'll have a poll on which one we want to buy soon.

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
