  1. According to the new membership system, you have an active membership until January 2023... Eric
  2. For the Forums >> https://forum.ipmsusa3.org/lostpassword/
  3. It... takes... time... to... handle... the... offline... membership... information....
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Its a De Agostini Model Space kit.... E
  7. Looks a bit like Gulf Blue. But looking through some of the Dodge paint colors in the 1960s, I'm not really sure. Seems lighter than 1962 powder blue - https://www.paintscratch.com/touch_up_paint/Dodge/1962-Dodge-All-Other-Models-Powder-Blue-CC-1-1962.html and 1964 Arctic Blue - https://www.paintscratch.com/touch_up_paint/Dodge/1964-Dodge-Trucks-Arctic-Blue-1640-1964.html Maybe one of the 1966 blues - https://www.paintscratch.com/touch_up_paint/Dodge/1966-Dodge-All-Models.html E
  8. I've posted the online results to the Office Manager... Eric
  9. Don't read much into the number of members vs the IPMS membership ID numbers... I would say a good many were lost, re-issued, etc. In a recent database file, there are roughly 19500 members listed (going back to Jim Sage at #0) but the IPMS# is at 54200ish. Another example, for the first 1000 members listed, the IPMS# goes to 11400.... Eric
  10. Due to a delay in the mailing of the latest Journal, we are extending the voting period for Executive Board and Staff members to October 1. Electronic votes and paper ballots postmarked by that date will be accepted.
  11. Its also part of the official IPMS minutes >> https://ipmsusa.org/about/executive-board-meeting-minutes/2021/august
  12. https://news.ipmsusa3.org/news/2021-ipmsusa-national-contest-preliminary-winners-list
  13. Making progress with the new theme.... E
  14. If you notice on SVSM's Chapter page, for example, there is a field for Next Meeting Time and Additional Meeting Information. Every year during the chapter recertification cycle we try to get each Chapter to check its page to make sure the information presented is accurate. Sometimes we get a response, sometimes we do not. Eric
  15. See https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter-map?title=&region=9&state=CA
  16. I'm doing a little work behind the scenes on the site so www.ipmsusa.org, www2.ipmsusa.org, and ipmsusa.org all are the same with www2 being the final page the others are being redirected to. Once I have that finished, www. will be the final destination. E
  17. Hmm... it was fixed. I need to look into this - something is not clearing the cache correctly and the calendar page is overriding things.. E
  18. Setting up a new Forums space for the 2021 National Convention
  19. Hi, I don't get such a box on the Checkout page - see attached. When I click on the yellow PayPal button at the bottom, I get a pop up to log into my PP account, but that's all. What browser are you using and which OS - with version numbers/names? Also, see if you have popup windows blocked in your browser. (As to why iOS likely works - mobile Safari likely shares little code with desktop Safari and other iOS browsers (Chrome, FF, Opera) all use the Webkit engine used by Safari, so those are different from their desktop counterparts.) Eric
  20. James - I checked the Voting site and it already had a ballot in for your account. I removed it so you can now try again. Also, you need to go to https://voting.ipmsusa3.org/form/2021-ipms-election-ballot to vote, you tried accessing the 2018 ballot once or twice. Michael - I'm not sure why you are having issue with the store. I see an abandoned order in the system but I cannot process any further. You should see the PayPal section right after the CC section - see below. If not, perhaps the security settings on your browser are blocking that part of the page. I'm not really sure. Eric
  21. Voting is now live - https://voting.ipmsusa3.org Eric
