So you pay $25 per year for this. Does that mean if you sign up now until the time the record comes out, you get the record? Or is based on a calendar year and anyone who signs up this year will get something different?

I would assume it's based on calendar year (or at least a cutoff date in Jan). That would be the easiest for them to track and would make the most sense. Anything else and you run into a problem with the next year's single possibly being ready within a year of someone's join date and them thinking they should get a second release. Sending people two singles in the same membership year wouldn't be very fiscally sound.

But obviously this is a question best asked directly to the fan club.

No doubt, that makes sense.

In that case, though, shouldn't I get charged another $25 really soon?

Why would you get charged anything really soon? It's January and the fan club was first offered in late June of last year with a yearly membership.

So $25 for a 2012 membership, now we are in 2013.

Or it is going to renew the first day that it was officially offered? That defines the year? So say that date is June 14th, if I sign up on June 13th am I going to get the 2012 package and then get charged another $25 the next day for the 2013?

What is the cutoff to get the 7" then? Has this passed already? Everyone signing up at different dates seems to make things complicated unless it is based on the calendar year (or on a 1 year cycle starting in June. Same thing).

you should just email the fan club if you're really that worried about it. no one else knows and would only be guessing.

My guess is that everyone would renew their membership on the anniversary of their joining date. So if you joined on June 14th, that's when you'd renew every year. If someone else joined on August 27th, they'd renew on that date. That way everyone gets the full year that they are paying for.

As far as the vinyl goes, I would think that if you joined in 2012, you'd get the vinyl for that year (acoustic version of Desire and Halloween). If you sign up on January 1st or later, you would get the 2013 holiday vinyl. I could definitely be wrong here, but that's what makes sense to me. Smile

I'm not really worried about it. Just saying that there are goofy situations that can arise using that method.

Like I subscribe on December 31st 2012, cancel on December 30th 2013, and essentially get 2 years worth of packages (assuming that the package next year would be sent out on time).

No big deal, though. In this for the long haul so there is no way to game it long term.

Nice! I just checked the tracking on Infinite Merch and mine should arrive tomorrow. I'm assuming the poster is not signed or you would have mentioned it.

Got my poster today. It's unsigned but that's okay with me, it wasn't advertised as signed and I like the art a lot.

I don't know why I have been so cynical lately, but if it's limited edition of 250 posters I really think it should be numbered as such. Such my 2 cents.

Great looking poster though, can't wait to get this framed.

I got my poster today! Smile I was pleasantly surprised that it got here so quickly. In the past, Infinite Merch has taken forever with my orders.

Any word on when the holiday vinyl is going to ship since, you know, it's after the holidays? I know there was a delay in production or something, but I hadn't heard if there was a date mentioned.

I'm kinda surprised, but the fan club poster appears to still be available. I expected it to sell out pretty quick.

It appears the remaining stock have been signed by Brian and Alex L.

That's what I get for ordering early. Oh well, I'm still happy with the purchase.

Without wanting to sound too negative: so my reward for buying the poster early is i get an unsigned copy, whereas if i'd waited around a few weeks, i could have had a signed one? Disappointing.

They're probably doing that to get rid of them.

Oh, I'm sure. I'm still surprised they didn't sell faster...but maybe that's just me.

Just ordered my copy.....excited for the signatures too. I think this and the Handwritten poster are going to be my last posters for a while.......while that is if they don't have a new poster at their March Tour.

the fact they are signing these posters to get rid of them pretty much confrims they were a little overpriced in the first place.

To be honest though, I wouldn't have really wanted mine signed anyhow...the signatures would interfere with the design.

Oh well...I love this Handwritten poster that is forthcoming but I think I'm done buying posters unless I like a show specific poster for a show I attend. Too much $$$, nowhere to hang them all anyhow.

Yep. I'm pretty annoyed about this too. I've been fairly supportive of the fan club up to now but this takes the piss.

I know they're only signing them to shift the final few but surely they should have signed a limited number and given them to those that bought first. Or signed a few and allocated them randomly, either way is fairer than this.

I'm disappointed too. I mean, it's not like it's a huge deal or anything, I still have an awesome poster that I love, but those of us who ordered right away should have received autographed copies. I bet they would have sold out quickly if they had had some signed ones right off the bat.

it is definitely a pretty raw deal because I know most would have loved signed posters.

Anyhow, while we are on the subject of the Fan Club, where is this Holiday 7"? AMy updates on that?
