New membership, how, when , where

will everything be lost, all my forum posts , points etc?

i dont want it to go away because i want to purchase a new LPU membership soon
how do i do that, when is the right time to do that?

this is the first time i got into the LPU so no idea how this all works
please help :smiley:

Not sure since my gap between LPU 6 and LPU 10 had drastic changes all together, but most people I’ve known renew within a week of expiring. (:

As long as you renew within 3 months of your expiration date you’re good. You won’t lose anything :slight_smile:

http://groundctrl.com/terms-of-use/

i know, i sound like a noob but its just a little confusing because english ain’t my main language x]

btw how can the system know that i want this account back?
just by using the same info?

Also, if you renew BEFORE it expires, you don’t lose any time.

For example…if your LPU expires in MAY 2013, but you wanted to get the LPU12 while it was cheap in November/December 2012, it just adds the year from the initial expiry date and NOT from the date of purchase, so it would be show an expiry of MAY 2014.

It might be common sense, but I’m sure some people may assume it goes from date of purchase only

THIS! :slight_smile:
I always renew earlier cause a) I want the cd (which is since LPUX not included in the package) and b) cheaper and faster delivery of the package/goodies/whatever
