    I like the changes but you might want to do something nicer when there are no posts waiting to go live. Seeing just this "Phoronix Premium - Upcoming Articles:" with nothing else is really annoying to us obsessive compulsive types.

    I wish you will add more payment options like via VISA without paypal.

    Default RSS links

    When the content management system / vBulletin subscription issue gets resolved, will we be able to get the premium view just by clicking the RSS link without visiting the forums for a log-in first?

    I prefer RSS and I was premium member. But this bug made that subscription useless and the fact that after so many years it's still here made me a bit bitter.

    Unfortunately that's not easily possible. vBulletin handles our subscription management.

    I noticed this morning that, indeed the timeout session is extended, and I got a mostly ad-free experience this morning on the first visit to an article.

    The one outlier was the intellitext in articles, which still showed up until I visited the forums once. Not sure if that's an easy one to fix or not.

    Thanks for the work Michael. These recent improvements should hopefully help to bump the premium subscriber rate up quite a bit, and it'll definitely keep me in the subscriber bucket.

    Fixed, thanks.
