Sharon,

I did,  too.  But, we can still pop in on this forum, too, can't we?  A day without Sharon would be a day without sunshine.

I sure hope we can do both.  That's what I was planning to do.  I cannot imagine a day without checking the 100 most recent posts.

Not to worry Barry, we'll still be about to make sure you're doing your homework!  :knuppel2:    :2funny:   The challenges will still be here and just remember..... you'll always have me!  :o   You may take that as a promise, or a threat, whichever you feel most comfy with.  >:D
 
Cheers, Val

Wow, Nolan, your brain is always thinking up new ways to make us happy.  Hard to conceive of an even better Forum, but I'm open to the next big adventure!

he guys,
How did you do the migration?  I was not able to sign-in with my current password.  I thought Nolan said we would soon get an email to tell us when/how to migrate.   :1hug:
Cheers, Annie

Dear Annie;


I think the new site will give users broader access from more
devices.  (tablets, phones, ect.)


I think you will need to sign up as a new member as it is a new site.


I'll see you over on the new site in a few days!!!!!!

Hi Annie

May Lynn is correct you need to sign on as a new member in other words join the site. I just used my same user name as here  :) (and no fromoto is not my last name but saying I am from Oto which is short for Otorohanga in NZ as a member once asked me, i.e. Lisa from Oto :2funny: :2funny: )

Nolan question I have joined the new website and then cancelled my PB VIP membership (I think) I hit the red button but I can still watch the seascape lesson I was/am doing, which is just as well as the seascape with the rolling wave seems to be the only lesson that doesn't seem loaded on the new website  ;D  :whistle:

From what I understand we can use both sites if we want, we can wait for a while before migrating and if we enjoy the feedback and support from PB members then continue to use PB forum I know I will definitely still be using forum here until everyone can get over there as the each phase happens
Aroha! Lisa :-)

I understand from Nolan we can use both sites and soon there will be a forum on the site. I'm with Mea - a day without PB is never pleasant!
Cheers,
Sharon

Annie - I will contact all yearly VIP members, like yourself, in the week to migrate you over to the new site - this needs to be done manually

Lisa - Even though you have cancelled your membership on the PB site, it will still be valid until the end of the paying month. eg. if your club payment comes through on the 10th of each month your club access will run until the 10th of the next months. So for a time you may have access to the classes here and on OALessons. When your membership month expires here, you will then only have access on the OALessons site.

The forum on OALessons is members only.

This forum is open to any member. We did look at moving this forum over but the log in systems are different and the logistics just didn't work. This site was put together with an incredible amount of custom programming in order for everything to work together, which meant that eventually to change / improve something was a ton of behind the scenes programming. With the OALessons we didn't want to repeat those mistakes , so we decided to make clean start with the new site. What makes a forum a cool place to visit is the people, with everybody gradually moving over to the new site, you will see that it won't take long for the new forum to be just as much fun, except now everything will work a lot easier  O0

Okay guys, in excitement  :yippee:  we are jumping ahead of our horsies  :cowboy:, and adding headaches to the process.

Let's be patient  :stress: , I am sure it will be great.  :hug:
Cheers, Annie

I just joined the new site and now have to cancel my membership here but am hanging on for a few more days before I do that.  I feel a little sad to have to say "good-bye" to our former home which felt so safe. I guess as we age, change is always difficult, no matter how small but as the saying goes, "we have to go with the flow" and no doubt, in the end, we will be happy we did. Wishing Dennis and Nolan the very best with this new venture and to thank them both for always trying to do the best for us all. I am sure I speak for everyone in saying that we love and appreciate you both. Thank you and bless you both.

Patricia you can cancel now already by going to any of the class list pages, eg.
http://www.paintbasket.com/paintbaskettv/?stream=class-list&medium=pencil&subject=animals

scroll to the bottom and click the Cancel button

Your classes here will remain open until your next payment date O0

Patricia you can still come on forum and post any paintings the cancelling membership only means payment for lessons so until most everyone is over there for forum and everything and the next phase is up and running, I will do lessons through new site but still spend a lot of time on Paint Basket  :)

This is my understanding anyway  :blush:

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Nolan and Lisa for your messages. I stopped payment for my PB membership when I joined the new site and was surprised that I didn't have to cancel my membership here at PB for it was done for me with the payment stoppage.  Paypal however, was not sure how this would affect my membership at PB which still had three cycles (payments) to run but I am sure that that is O.K. as I am really just migrating to the new site. Perhaps you could confirm this Nolan, if it is not covered in the forthcoming new letter to VIP members. 


Many thanks,


Patricia

When you cancelled your Paypal subscription, it cancels your membership here too. You will however still have access until the month you have paid for expires. Eg. if your club payment is on the 13th of the month, your access will run to the 13th of the next month. Hope that makes sense

Dear Nolan;


Are you not still a member of PB even if your club ( or VIP membership) has expired.  And do you not still
have access to classes you have purchased outright over the years?  Do you have the ability to purchase more classes on an individual bases as they come on line?


Regards,


May lynn
