    I'm thinking of upgrading to a GFM. For all of you who already have, what are the benefits of upgrading? How do you like it?

    Other than being able to change your "title" under your username, i haven't noticed that much of a difference.

    You have more storage with messages and such.

    I got a GFM simply to support the forum and all the work it takes to maintain it [​IMG]

    I'm a bit confused...my 2 posts in the BTS sections switched to bump in a week (when I bumped them a week ago) and I noticed it last night. I checked when my GF membership was ending and it was today, so I renewed last night. My posts still say bump in a week, GF member isn't showing under my username, and I'm not sure what's going on. I did get confirmation that my membership renewal was complete.
    Help please?
    Thanks

    looks like it's all worked out. I didn't get any notice that my GFM was ending today...I just noticed that my title was different and my listings couldn't be bumped when i thought they needed it. Isn't there a way to notify members when their GFM/PPM is coming close to ending?
