I also need to remove the automatic recurring deduction from my credit card. I signed up for FREE membership, but didn't get feedback that it was successful.


How do I email an administrator? This is not as easy as it should be.


Thanks.

I did a premium just to get rid of the sidebar . Used paypal and then immediately went to paypal account and cancelled the recurring authorization so that they can't charge next year. If I decide I want no sidebar ads next year I'll renew myself. Having been through this crap before on another site, I can tell you that in that case I used a credit card. I called the CC company, told them the situation, they cancelled the card, issued a new one, and had to do something like is done with a stolen card to prevent preauthorized subscriptions from being accepted on the new card. I then had to individually reauthorize things like my cable and power bills.

I don't remember how I did it, but it was through my control panel somehow.
It was not readily apparent, and it SHOULD be.

Just one more reason I hate these corporate forums, with their unending advertisements.

The BMW forum I am on daily is privately owned, financial contributions ONLY, and is spam and ad free.

Like Wikipedia, I use it so much, I am happy to contribute every year.

Are you talking about the ads?

If so, People should know about the addon for browsers called AdBlock. Its free. If anything we should be paying that guy. He is a dad doing it on free time and it blocks ads on all pages. Even stuff from Youtube and all that. Even blocks my ads from watching TV on Comcast Online On Demand.

If you pay to get rid of ads, just get AdBlock. lol

S.O.B.! It works! Like magic! I sent him $5 (I'm broke, or it would have been more).

I had to contact the administrator when I first started because my account wasn't fully activated. They got back to me the same day. I used a link from the welcome email in my forum inbox.

The Administrator was very helpful and prompt in addressing the problem I had in my original post.
(As have been Moto Mike and all the other mods here.)
I suspect the "paid" option only was probably due to the browser I was using when I first joined and not the fault of the site.
Not sure how I contacted the Administrator at the time, but you can access a link to him here:

I wonder if I could get away with installing that here at work!

I've been trying to get [email protected] to respond to my email requests to refund the $15 removal of funds via Paypal for the Premium membership no longer wanted. It took me longer to figure out how to cancel the auto-renewal.

The big issue for me is the ONE DAY notice of auto-renewal, which is way too short for such a system. Yesterday I received an auto-renewal notice for my motorcycle insurance, some TWO WEEKS ahead of the due date. That's more how it should be.

The other issue was that last year I canceled the auto-renewal when I got billed twice. Well, it turned out that the auto-renewal from 2013 was still in effect.

The act of canceling the auto-renewal is buried deep within the Paypal account, too deep for what it is.

$15 is not much in the grand scheme of things, so it is the principle here that chaffs my hide. If I get the CB500X I've been looking at, it is doubtful I would support any forum with this type of auto-renewal system.
