BAD NEWS:
We have now come to the point where an adjustment of the GMC subscription price is necessary. The current rates were set three years ago.

GOOD NEWS:
It won't affect you. That's right - if you have got an active subscription you will keep getting full GMC access for the same, low fee.

In other words new members will soon pay more for GMC - but old members will enjoy further growth/development of the site without paying more.

On a sidenote I want to thank all the old-time members who have made it possible to take GMC from a site with ~five guitar lessons, to a full blown guitar community. You rock, GMC wouldn't be what it is today without you.

Does this mean, that:

a)When my 12 month subriction renews (is that a word) it will cost me the old prize? or the new?
b)When the credit card expires (is that a word) and the last 12-month subscription ends, i have to pay the increased prize to activate my account?

And yeah, how much do you increase the prize?
But I won't quit GMC unless you raise the prize to somewhere like 100 € month biggrin.gif

It will cost you the old price forever no matter how many times it renews.

If paypal cannot renew your subscription (usually because the card has expired) it will send you several warning emails before your subscription is terminated.

If you want to be on the safe side you can add a secondary credit card to your paypal account.

However - if you cancel your subscription and then sign up again (after the new prices are live) you will not be able to sign up for the old price.

The price levels we have discussed range from (depending on which billing cycle you choose):

most expensive:
29 usd / month (today 9,6 /month )

cheapest:
19 usd / month (today 7,5 /month )

This isn't quite set in stone yet - but to give you an impression.

Hmm, I quite don't understand that all smile.gif

But i know that the credit card had expired, but the paypal account is the same. So when i we bought the new subscription with the same e-mail, it refreshed the old one (Cause all my bookmarks were there cool.gif ). So if i do the same in future, will it cost the new prize or the old prize?

If you sign up again you get the new price (even if your bookmarks are still there) - if you let the subscription renew by itself you get the old price.

This adjustment seems very reasonable to me considering

keeping the same price for existing members is really cool. smile.gif

Oh man ! Does this mean I have to change the videos on YouTube with my referral link ? I doubt anybody's going to join because of me, but I don't want to be dishonest by putting ~$20/3 months...

Anyway, I probably shouldn't advertise for GMC at all, seeing as my playing will most likely give negative reputation to this wonderful site ! sad.gif

On the other hand, I'm glad we get to stay for twice as little ! biggrin.gif

I think the increase is logical because today there are more many lessons than 2- 3 years ago

Absolutely. Also the standards are higher. Larger video frame, more quality content etc...

Sounds like a great plan! ... I especially like the part where I don't have to pay more tongue.gif

GMC has evolved alot, though. So I can totally see why this is happening =)

Hey Kris are sure with this prices? I ask because at the moment i pay 29 USD for GMC after rejoining at June 09. Don't get me wrong i have nothing aganst a price adjustment but i think the prices you named here are the same as now?
But i don't know it maybe I'm wrong.

Now you pay 29 bucks for three months, while new members will pay 29 bucks each month if they pay one month at a time. Same as now, you get it cheaper if you pay for longer periods, I guess wink.gif
