Hey guys, the Big Live Live Show is nearly upon us. It'll be starting on Friday morning at 10AM Pacific Daylight Time, and we've got a full day of stuff lined up for you, including the exclusive premium second stream, which, if I'm reading this show rundown correctly, will feature a whole lot of Dave bein' Dave.

But let's get a little housekeeping out of the way here, before the show begins. For those of you who joined us on the original launch date of September 9, your re-billing date is coming up tomorrow. Why September 12? Well, remember when Amazon exploded and you were without a website for that chunk of time? We credited everyone with a few extra days.

So in light of that, it's a good time to remind you of how to make changes to your account. This is handy if you've got an expired credit card that you need to update before the re-billing occurs, among other things. If you need to know your expiration date, you can find it right here on your history page. Keep in mind that, if you are an annual subscriber, this renewal will also generate you a new $15 store code, good for goods and services that include our brand-new 2013 membership shirt, shown here:

Find that shirt and the rest of our current designs over on the Store page.

If you're worried about your favorite design selling out before you get a code, don't be! We've made some changes to our merchandise process that make these designs slightly less limited than they've been in the past, so there should be more than enough for everybody.

Also, if you have any other questions about the membership process, how to access the premium RSS feeds, and the changes you can make to your account status, the Premium Member Hub is where you want to go. That FAQ should have what you're looking for.

OK, we have about a billion things to do between now and the Friday morning show kickoff, so I'm going to get back to that. We'll see ya Friday!

Bought a premium membership the first chance I got when my financial situation allowed for it. Best $50 I ever spent, especialy after enjoying all the free content here for countless hours. Really looking forward to this year's installment of the Big Live Live Show.

That looks like the Origin logo.

#4 Posted by Pox22 (342 posts) -

So excited, even though I'll be out of town this weekend. Can't wait to catch the archive.

#5 Posted by Womble (56 posts) -

Here's to another year of fun, lads!

Going to watch as much of the show as I can before I have to work. Looking forward to the craziness.

Gotta get a new shirt!

#8 Posted by Finstern (639 posts) -

Love the Wipeout themed logo and shirt!

#9 Posted by warxsnake (2639 posts) -

If EA's Origin had a Wipeout racing team, that would be their logo.

I might be asleep for the start of it. Haven't made my mind up yet. I really like sleeping.

#18 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Oh yes. Dave bein' Dave is all I need to know about the premium stream.

#19 Posted by Chtasm (445 posts) -

Were the extra 3 days for early adopters of Premium? My membership lapsed on the 9th.

#20 Posted by TrashMustache (451 posts) -

that shirt looks generic as hell, srry, not trolling, just my opinion

#21 Posted by Chemin (632 posts) -

That logo almost looks like the logo for TV6 in Sweden. That's interesting.

#22 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

@Jeff: Do you know anything about some people's renewal dates being pushed to September 22nd or 23rd last year? I don't quite remember how that happened, but I do remember emailing Dave and he told me that they gave a few extra days for whatever reason (not the amazon thing).

#23 Posted by Animasta (14648 posts) -

I wish you would make easier to know how to cancel the automatic billing.

#24 Posted by Vexxan (4616 posts) -

Members tee and Flight Club t-shirt ordered!

@Chtasm: If you weren't a member during Amazon's server implosion then you didn't get extra time.

#27 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

When should I get the confirmation email? 

#28 Posted by Demoskinos (14578 posts) -

Can't wait to have DUAL streams. Will be so much awesome. Sucks I don't get a shirt because I renewed early but... I also only paid $35 so... can't complain.

Pretty sure you will be bled dry. No escape. I reckon they might take your internet connection.

I'd prefer to be on the monthly option because (a) it lets me give you more money, and (b) I wouldn't even notice $5 deducting from my account each month so it'd be an easy way to support the site. Win-win, I'd think. But I would prefer to not see ads, and you can't opt out of them on the monthly plan.

Is there any way you guys would reconsider how the plans are broken down? I feel like the monthly option would be preferable for you guys but I'm not sure why I'd be a second class citizen for showing more support for the site (silver avatar medallion and all!)

#33 Posted by Chtasm (445 posts) -

@chilibean_3: ah, do you remember when that happened?

#34 Posted by Codeacious (960 posts) -

Jeff linking to the Premium Member's Hub reminded me that they need to do something with that Big Red Phone page. The Hub still links to it and everything.

#35 Posted by Maajin (1052 posts) -

Hey guys, it would be awesome if you also archived the premium stream, as I probably won't be able to catch everything live.

#36 Posted by WJist (313 posts) -

Re-subbed! Guess what? Not a lot of work is getting done Friday :) :) :)

#37 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

@sirchode: I imagine that this is because most silver members only sign up for the one month to see a few of the premium videos and then unsubscribe. Giving the same benefits as the people who've paid more to stay subscribed for an entire year would be a bit unfair. Even if there's a few users like yourself who're actually paying more, I'm certain that you're in the minority.

#38 Posted by Brandino (246 posts) -

That GerstMannia shirt is beyond amazing.

Kudos to the person(s) that designed it!

Yeah that shirt is ugly.

#44 Posted by GunstarRed (5040 posts) -

Didn't really need a reminder because there's been a unkillable/returning bar across the top of my screen for about a month saying "HEY, GIVE US MONEY!" oh, and the constant emails...

Seeing as I'm being a total whiner and I'm in a really bad mood today... If I buy a new T-shirt design and never receive it, will it take about ten years to get a "I'll look into it" with no updates and the rest of my emails ignored? And still end up with no refund or T-shirt...cool, great...

#45 Posted by bigbadron (24 posts) -

can we get some hardcore Dave shirts back in stock?

#46 Posted by procrasturbate (277 posts) -

BUMMER, my subs ending and i'm unemployed at the moment. Hope you guys get slammed with new subscribers, you guys deserve it.

Just updated my card info, and that was an awesome thing that happened =D

I agree, the logo looks like it's for a Petrol Station or something. It's not representative of Giant Bomb at all.
