Subscription deals

I took out a 2 month subscription to see if I liked CS and I do so am keen to renew as it is going to expire shortly.

However I can only see an option to pay in multiples of 5 USD per month. Are there any more cost effective ways of supporting CS longer term in return for a slightly better pro-rata monthly rate?

Yeah, monthly subscriptions go as low as $2/month

I might be hiding the monthly form for people who “already have a subscription” which would include one-time contributors during their months of access

I’ll look into that today

Sorry if this is answered somewhere else, but if one signs up for an ongoing recurring monthly subscription, how would you go about cancelling that in the future - if things say don’t work out between us :wink: … The subscription page doesn’t say whether this will be possible… it seems to indicate an open-ended forever and ever arrangement.

Only certain things in life are death, taxes and an on-going CityStrides subscription.

Seriously though there is a Cancel button in the Settings page. I hear that sends an electrical shock to James’ keyboard and he only gets to eat top ramen for the rest month.

Yeah it’s also wired up to a spray bottle that’s pointing at my cat & it spritzes him on every cancellation so you’re also making him feel real bad too.

That said, I’ll update the site to be clearer about cancellation. Thanks for the feedback!


@JamesChevalier Got any cat videos/pictures? Kinda serious, and yeah, off topic. We have 2 cats, Marco & Polo. :cat2: :cat2:

so you’ll update the site to mention the cat?


Got to know I can cancel and we all love cats!

First things first though I still can’t take out a subscription. Maybe I need to wait until 27th June when my current 2 month payment runs out?

Yeah, sorry, I didn’t build that UI in a way that considers this situation. :frowning:

There are two options (not counting the possibility of me redesigning this page in the meantime):

  • Wait until the 27th, and subscribe after that contribution resets
  • I can manually reset your status (‘cancelling’ your subscriber access) and you can subscribe right after I do that

Let me know if you’d like me to manually reset things; otherwise I’ll assume you’re ok to wait to the 27th.

I may unsub and resub just to torture James and his cat!

This is the type of need-to-know information that keeps me coming back to the forums!

Assuming I won’t lose anything else once have subscribed again, please go ahead and do a reset.

OK, you should be all set to subscribe - let me know if something doesn’t work right, I haven’t done this before. :grimacing:

Can’t see anything different. Still says am subscribed until 27th June.

Can you share your profile link, please? (top right menu)

I am

OK, how about now? :grimacing: :sweat_smile:

Ah yes that’s better. So how does this work now? Is that monthly and do I just select an amount that seems reasonable?

Yeah, pay what you’d like. :smile:
