Subscription program ?
Can I ask what is happening to the Subscription program ?
I noticed this thread showthread.php?t=15327 discussing its imminent demise.
I haven't heard anything about it, no email, no official announcement..
Hi Graig, below is the text of the email sent out. It's also repeated in the subscriptions area of your account. HTH
Thanks for the link John
can you tell me when you received this , so i can check my mail properly.
I actually noticed it in my Subscriptions area about 4 hours before getting the email. I was in there as, like most of us, I knew the sub ran out soon and was looking to see the date and more importantly, how much it was going to cost.
I certainly didn't get a mailing, but I now have the link.
I can't believe its been nearly a year - I'd better start touting for some more business !!! :)
It is a bit concerning that you didn't receive the email. We regret having to cancel the program at all. We had hoped for a much greater adoption that would keep the program viable, but unfortunately it just didn't happen.
The details of the announcement are relatively simple. We will of course honor the contract we entered for the term of the subscription you have paid for if that is your choice. You just won't be able to renew the membership at that time.
In appreciation of the inconvenience this may cause to users, we have offered a few "buy out" options. Where you can cancel your membership immediately and take advantage of either a $199 store credit or purchase super suite for $199 (a $600 savings off the retail price).
Thanks for the reply Ray.
One thing the subscription was great for, was not having to worry about paying for new versions and new extensions.
On a purely selfish note, I notice there a couple of things in beta at the moment.
I have a couple of weeks before I need to take up the Supersuite offer,
Can I be rude and ask, is it worth my waiting ?
We won't be releasing anything before the Sept. 10 deadline. If you take the $199 store credit it should cover the purchase of the extensions in beta since you are a super suite owner you will automatically get 50% off on top of that so the $199 should go pretty far.
That sounds very good :)
