Gifting OLS Membership Question
Hi, I have a friend who is interested in starting sweeping and I would like to gift her a subscription to get her started. Is there a way to do this when they aren't already a member of OLS? The "gift" option requires an OLS user name. I guess the way around this is to have her sign up for a non-premium and then "upgrade" her but I'm wondering if there's a more direct way?

Thanks for any help!

They have to have a username. Your username is the same forever and always, whether you are premium or not. So they just need to sign up, then you can gift them with a membership!

You have a very lucky friend!

I wish my friends would have picked up on the (not so) subtle hints this year when my birthday rolled around! This is the first year since I joined that I am not green!
