    A word of warning, it seems to be impossible to extend a current subscription. I have made 2 payments to RHP for the winners of my contest, but got this final word back from Russ this morning:

    "Dear Steve Willingham (Monty Moose),
    Thank you for your recent feedback.
    Both of these player have an active recurring subscription, ...[text shortened]... yone with an idea please pm me). A non-sub winner does not seem to be a problem."

    Best, Steve

    ....................................

    Thanks. Quick thought would be that 1) The Second Place Finisher's RHP Store purschase isn't affected; 2) First Place Winner (if already a subscriber)
    could a) Designate a non-subscriber friend to receive it; b) Redeem it at Russ' Store; or c) Be given a Gift Certificate at Amazon. Thoughts? -gb

    ......................................

    Mikelom:
    Gifting the prize to a non-subscriber or charity represents additional option.
    Please cease and desist from confusing potial member participation.


    Thank you.

    Basically, reading into the actual 'issue' with regard to recurring subs and 'subscription prizes', the subscriber would have to discontinue his recurring sub. This however would automatically lose his or her discount received for the loyalty scheme at RHP. It's fine for a new subscriber ( anyone continually subscribing after sometime in '08, I believe, when they stopped that scheme ) AND fine for non subs also. Also you cannot actually 'extend' a sub, you'd have to wait until that sub has finished before paying it...I asked about the chances of anyone extending their sub when the site offered 'discounted rates' for RHP's 10th anniversary last year. If the discount was available for only a month, why can't a recent subscriber just 'tack-on' the months they'd used, further extending their sub. Answer, they won;t do it..I'm afraid it unlikely the 'prize' will be of use to all..a shame as the site NEEDS subscribers !!
    Edit: Oh, as to the title of the thread; you'll have to send feedback as non subs can't notify directly from the forum, I believe...one must assume that non subs 'generated' far too many forum direct complaints ....

    Thank you, Rev.

    P.S. Sorry for the delays on the 64.
