Pay Wall "Last Minute" Rush Expected - Patience Please

FeedbackBy DON WINNER for - A lot of people have subscribed to this website over the past ten days, since I announced that I would be moving the website behind a "pay wall" on 1 December. It was probably smart to get it done a few days ahead of time. Most people have been able to pay for the subscription via PayPal and establish their user accounts with no problems whatsoever.

However a few people have hit snags, mostly problems with credit cards not being accepted, or confusion over log in credentials (user name and password) for the user accounts on this website. It seems like those who use the same email address for PayPal and the user account have the least problems, and those who either can't or won't pay via PayPal, or who what to use a different email address are having the most problems I've been working through those issues one at a time, and eventually everyone has been taken care of.

Many people have also told me or otherwise indicated they intend to wait until 1 December to subscribe. It seems like there will be a bit of a "rush" at the last minute. If the past ten days have been any indication, there might be a bit of a delay (a day or two) if you wait until the last minute, until we can get the problems worked out.

Anyway, just a heads up. Don't be surprised if it takes me awhile to dig my way out of a sudden rush of service issues, as we get closer to 1 December 2012. If you are intending to subscribe anyway, please consider taking care of it ahead of time, to avoid those conflicts.

And to all those who have already or who are intending to subscribe - thank you very much.

Pay Wall \"Last Minute\" Rush Expected - Patience Please

For the amount of effort you put into your web site, I think $20 a year is cheap. Hell, I pay that much monthly to read the NY Times. True there is a big difference between the NY Times and Panama Guide, but on the whole I am more interested in whats going on locally.

Don - You do a great job and I am pleased I have already subscribed. I spent 27 months in Panama over at Ft. Kobbe Howard Field duriing WWII. It is great to see photos and stories of various changes and developments in Panama. To see all the changes in a lifetime is a blessing. Keep up the good work.
