    My question is this. If you had a sub at the start of the month, but cancel it before that months livestream, but then after the midnight of the livestream I start the sub up again, do I still get the rewards ? :p:D

    If you cancel. It starts up where you left off. For example you cancel after 3 months and you decide to start again after a break then you still have those 3 months when you come back counted and you won't lose those.

    If you are not subbed at the time of a livestream then my guess is you don't qualify but @DarkStarr can advise if you qualify for the whole month. And yes I agree with your statement. The wording could be clearer.

    If you wish to game the system in that manner, have at.
    You will have saved a dollar.

    Do you get 2 rewards if you purchase 2 things worth $5 each?

    But, what if you're a subscriber, and you cancel your sub at 10:43am, and then 18 minutes later you start it up again while your internet is not working? THEN... what if you play (approximately) 2 hours, 13 minutes, and 43 seconds later in offline mode and you don't see any other avatars running around... that means you're subscribed, right? Where are my COTOS?!

    If I start a $9 sub today do I get the rewards from last week Friday post mortem? I forgot about the post mortem and did not buy anything last Friday.

    Subs work for the whole month.

    But I too have a sub question. I'd rather it was firing on the 2nd of the month instead of the 6th. Now that the 6th is done, if I cancel and resub next month on the 2nd, that's not going to screw up the 3 month counter? Or cause a bunch of headaches for Portalarium?

    They are too busy for me to waste their time on that. If it's a quick "Yeah go for it!" here I'll cancel and resub at the start of next month, otherwise I'm not going to waste their time. :)

    I think you are meaning the cumulative effect of subs towards the extended term rewards - and as I understand it you are probably right - but I was wondering about what the effects are if you cancel then resub again soon after, but a livestream period happens during the break between the two, which is quite possible if the livestream 'sale' period of 'some Fridays' is very short. Math suggests it's quite possible the 'cumulative Friday totals' can actually be one Friday, because calendar dates don't match with telethon periods.

    My only question...

    I looked into my awards and while I have the subscription... I also purchased an item during the telethon, because I love this game... anyway... I do not see a note stating that I have the R56 Telethon Awards coming my way, which is something that shows up after each telethon, all of the time, previously.

    Is this because of the change?

    To my understanding, under the current set up.

    If you activate your rewards program during the Post Release livestream within the window, or activate it on a Friday during the window, you will be eligible for livestream rewards from the current Release (currently R56)

    If you rewards program is already active during a Post Release Livestream, or already active any Friday after, up until the Next Release (upcoming R57) you I'll be eligible for R56 livestream rewards.

    The only way to "miss" livestream rewards would be to activate your rewards program on a Saturday, and cancel it on Thursday..

    You would miss current release rewards of you start you rewards program the Saturday after the last Friday, before the Next Release is launched, and did not have it activated, or active, on any other Friday leading up to it..

    Ok folks my question is a simple one so a simple yes or no will suffice. I joined the rewards program at inception. Do I have to pay again each month to keep it current or will it bill automatically so I don’t have to take action unless I want to stop it. Your clarification is appreciated. R/Boris/El Pirata.

    Bills automatically each month the same day (of the month) as when you started it.

    And yes as as mentioned it is billed automatically unless you cancel at any time. It shows on your account page under the subscription tab after you have chosen to join the rewards program.

    I wonder if i have to worry.
    I know of some people who are not on the reward program and bought stuff in the shop during the last telethon and they have a notification about the R56 livestream rewards on their account page.
    When i check my "special rewards" on the account page it shows nothing and i am on the 2nd subscription month...

    It's not showing for me either. @DarkStarr can we get feedback on this?
