  1. Given the laws enacted by Russia, social media platforms had no real choice but to cut access as they'd be liable for any posts that were deemed 'fake news' by the government. Which is pretty much everything that's actually happening in Ukraine, as opposed to what Russia says is happening. E
  2. First, you can print your own membership card in the new system. Its in your profile. The larger Member number is part of the new system - new members will get the eight digit number. Members prior to the system change still have their 1-5 digit membership number in their profile - they also have the eight digit number but that's not used as the IPMS # Eric

  4. You need to use the Advanced Search link https://ipmsu28.wildapricot.org/page-18051?&tab=2 and do this (see screenshot) Eric
  5. Looking at https://ipmsu28.wildapricot.org/page-18051 and https://ipmsusa.org/chapter-map?title=&region=All&state=MI , I count six active Chapters on each. There are a couple Chapters in the WA system that have lapsed and are no longer active. Eric
  6. That is the language selection button. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scale_model_kit_manufacturers , Riich is in Ukraine. Eric

  12. One thing to look at is the number of people involved in running a WorldCon - for example, https://chicon.org/home/about-worldcon/chicon-8-committee/ - there are easily over 100 people involved. I can't think of too many places in the US where we have a club, or clubs, with enough members to get 100 volunteers. And they all purchase memberships to the Con to become a volunteer. Yes, they may get all of that refunded, but it may not happen. As for the dealers, they pay $350 for a single 72" by 30" table with two chairs and a membership for the person at the table at $690.00 for DisCon III - there are some discounts for additional tables & memberships, I think. Also a number of past WorldCons have been part of established Sci-Fi cons which have run for decades.... I'd also look at the list on http://www.smofinfo.com/LL/TheLongList.html and look at the number that attended and the number that were members for each year. While there are some ideas we might be able to work into the Nats, WorldCon is really a different animal.... E
  13. The 'Processing' status is pretty meaningless with out store as we don't sell physical products. I manually move orders to 'Shipped' ... I will contact Marie about your membership. Eric
