Annnual subscription.

I just went to renew my annual subscription and the only availability through Paypal seems to be a "recurring" payment where my $20 subscription will automatically be deducted from my account every year.
No good.
I want to continue my membership but on a yearly basis only.
How do I do this?

Just make the payment then cancel the recurring part later I guess.

Seems a bit unwieldy KIWI. This is the first time this has happened. I'm keen to renew my subscription but I think the system should allow for payment on an annual basis as in the past. Is this the first time the "recurring" payment has been the only option to your knowledge?

The web site is owned by Verticalscope. The moderators are volunteers they do not make the rules and policies, don't shoot the messengers.

The renewal thing happened before Verticalscope took over afaik.
There have been numerous threads about it in the past.

Nothing in life is free.
This site costs money to run and it's not a charity. If you want to bludge and be an intermittent user then by all means use the free option. If you find this site useful and become a regular member then one years subscription will cost you less than one tank of fuel for your Strom plus you will get additional benefits and you will be contributing to keeping this site strong and viable.

This site is now a BUSINESS not a community, and I will never pay a cent towards it. But while it is FREE, I will hang around at my leisure.

The internet is a big place and will go on with or without this site.

Maybe I should pay for internet porn as well......lol.

Bingo!

We are now marketing tools.

The same debate is occurring on several of the 100 or so web forums that VScope owns.

Do as you please. It's your money.
