If you have already paid, then immediately file a claim with the payor, PayPal, or credit card for refund.


There is no one to credit PayPal payments into Premium Membership.
Autorenewals will not credit into Premium Membership.
There is no one monitoring any of the OLS emails or mailboxes.
The volunteer mods/admins/editors have no other information on payment statuses.

There is no way to pay for premium membership. ALL methods of payment are not working.
The PO box is closed. The PayPal relationship is BROKEN.

Still Green, not for long
My premium expires end of this month, May. I wonder if it will be any different than it has been for the past year? I don’t get into any features except the forums.

UPDATE: As my Premium expired yesterday, I was curious what today on OLS would be like. For those of you lamenting being unable to be Premium, Fear Not. There are no changes, no better sweeps as Premium, no hidden extra sweeps, it’s the same as it’s been the last year! I have no interest in the sites features like Shazzam, although My Sweeps was one I used all the time. The sweeps selections are dreadful, but for ad free content and the best format, no complaints here.

I see your username as still green, so it looks like you are still in a Premium member status, at least as of June 1st.

Good information about the forums either way. if your primary focus at OLS is on the forums, there should be minimal impact from losing green status.

FYi, according to my count the number of green users on the site is 144.

Itís weird, I have been getting email alerts from OLS warning that my premium is expiring. First one said 3 days, then later same day, said 1 day, which explains how I ended up paying two years in advance. Get a bill, pay it! I just ignore the warnings now.

Yes, the onslaught of messages can be confusing, but your username is no longer green as of this morning, so your Premium status did expire overnight.
