If you received a “subscription ended” e-mail…
…here’s what that’s all about.
First of all… don’t worry — that was a poor choice of words on the part of the organization that created the subscription software I use. I read it at the same time you did and literally banged my head on the desk.
Here’s what’s up
- Your subscription has NOT expired.
- The auto-renewal on your subscription HAS expired
The subscription software wasn’t working properly. They fixed it, but it meant that your subscriptions will not auto-renew.
So you will automatically lose your ability to access exclusive content when your subscription has expired on the anniversary of your last payment. For $30 members, that’s one year. For $5 members, that’s one month.
So, here’s what’s going to happen. Your membership will continue until its original expiration date. Then you’ll come to the site one day, find that you can’t, and then decide whether you want to resubscribe.
My job is to keep updating this site with so much good stuff that you’ll decide yes.
Here’s their confusing-as-the-dickens message:
I just wanted to let you know that your subscription to Webcomics.com has expired.
Unfortunately, when we installed new subscription software to replace the one that was borking the site, we lost the ability to automatically renew your subscription.
So, if you’d like to cancel your subscription, do nothing. Your account will be deactivated on the anniversary of your original payment. (sad trombone)
If you’d like to continue your subscription, you’ll have to sign in to the site and subscribe again. The good news is that the new subscription will automatically renew in a year — unless, of course, you decide to cancel it!
Either way, thank you for subscribing and happy comic-making to you!
