I usually takes effect the same day they get the money from Paypal. They do no send an email.
You have to add your own lager avatar ... the system should allow the larger size to be uploaded now and if it does, you will know that you have the upgraded account. It will not resize the avatar you already have ... the avatars and profile pics stay whatever size the already are. You will also have lots more space to upload images to attach in posts and much more message space.
is there a way i can upgrade my profile only to be able to have a larger avatar? I do not need any of the other extras! And do members who contribute a lot to many threads have chances to have an upgrade for free?
This thread is about how to pay. For more information about Premium Accounts, there is another thread as noted in post #1 of this thread. Here is the thread about the details about how the Premium accounts work ... everything you need to know.
this was not helpful at all, did you read my post? I asked if members who contribute a lot in the threads can get some discounts or free upgrade??? It is easy to give information how to pay, we all know this is the easy part everybody cares for, but there are other details sometimes that people need to know and I would be very happy if you take a minute to answer my question, please!
Yeah ... I don't see it in your account yet, either.
First the funds must clear at Paypal, so if you didn't have a "confirmed" or "verified" account (whatever they call it ... I actually forget) when you send the money, they have a slight delay until they receive the funds from your bank. The funds could still be at Paypal for a few business days.
If it doesn't take effect by Monday afternoon, please take a screen shot of your paypal account where it shows that it was actually remitted to tFS, and send me a PM. I'll ask them to check it out.
