If you wish to see your membership status, simply follow the steps in the next message to access the user control panel, where you can see your current status. Please do not follow ALL the steps - if you already have a membership, there's no need to purchase again, unless you wish to extend your membership.
Which of the tabs in the User CP will show current status ? I followed the instructions you listed for selecting either type of subscription, but didn't see current status shown.
PS: Thanks for getting this new system up and running.
