Part of the reason for this forum upgrade was that we came to realise that our member management software was well and truly broken.
We suspect that people had been joining ImmInst for months without their status being adjusted to full Member when they made a donation.
WE ARE VERY SORRY!
We hope the problem is now fixed.
If you have been affected by this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and post below.
IMPORTANT: you need to change the email that you use for paypal transaction to the one you use on the forums.
There may be a backlog of cases, please bear with us until we hopefully get this sorted out.
