Hey guys. Just noticed that my silver subscriber badge didn't change to gold when I bought a gold subscription a while ago. No big deal or anything but I thought I'd just mention it.

What badge?

No Caption Provided

Actually I guess this has been going on for quite some time. Months at least? I just assumed the cache was behind but now that I think about it there's been a lot of this.

Accept the reality of GB forums being constantly broken. Like when polls wouldn't add up to 100% for like 3 months.

Hey @skanes and others who said they have the wrong badge: Looking into this!

Hey there folks (@skanes@gamerchicck@floomp), you should be all fixed up now! (might have to delete your cache). It was an issue having to do with buying the new annual membership while being in the grace period for the monthly memberships you previously had. Sorry for the issues, but you should be good now.

If anyone else has this issue, hit me up and I'll fix it.

@skanes You've actually found another bug, which is good. Your badge isn't showing up in this thread because you are the thread creator - which is a second bug. Your badge is working correctly elsewhere. That fix will be going out in the next couple of days, so that everyone in this thread will be GOLD.

Thanks guys.

I also have that issue. I wonder if this is because I was a monthly subscriber and switched to annual.

EDIT: Oh crap completely missed @jslack's post.

Oh sweet. Fixing that second bug is gonna take care of all the "well OP I don't see a medal so why are you talking about subscriber stuff" comments. Thanks @jslack!

@odstr0y: Hey there. Looks like you a monthly user (thanks!). Did you mean to sign up for yearly?

@jslack: Oh okay, so if you sign up yearly the gold badge appears, cool!

@odstr0y: Yep! There is a pretty good sale on now, think it's definitely cheaper for you if you plan on renewing for 12 months. Either way, equally appreciate it.

@jslack: My gold badge isn't showing up. I've cleared my cache with no change. I've been gold subscriber for quite a while now.

I've been a gold sub for two years and I still have a silver one.

@twolines: @hypnotoadbrwowrowrow: Indeed, both of you are on yearly subs and should be gold. You are now, might have to wait a few mins, but should be good to go. Sorry about that.

Hmm. Looks like others are doing it. I'm in the same boat.

@gruebacca: Indeed, you are yearly, and now set correctly. Will try to address this on Tuesday after Labor Day, and set everyone else's account straight who doesn't post here.

I guess I have the same issue as others before me - was a monthly subscriber for a while, switched to yearly back in May, I think, yet my badge is still silver.

Just noticed that after upgrading to a year sub during the BLLSL this year, I still have a silver medal....

It looks like you are a monthly subscriber? The gold icon is for yearly subs.
