    I've been a Jr. VIP member for years now. I'm not as active as I once was but I still enjoy checking out the forum from time to time. I just logged in today and noticed I no longer have a Jr. VIP membership. Was there a forum upgrade/change recently that I missed? I'm not sure why I have a regular account now.

    Thanks!

    You need to renew the Jr VIP status annually with a subscription fees of $97.

    If you had it set to automatically renew, then you should have received an email letting you know that your subscription was cancelled. This didn't cancel your Jr. VIP membership (yours just expired), only the Paypal subscription.

    In case you're wondering why this happened, during the forum migration several months ago, the administrators of Black Hat World had to cancel everyone's subscriptions. You can read more about the forum migration to XenForo from vBulletin in this thread:

    @momoneynoproblems correct it if I am wrong but you seem to have only 81 posts. So how you were having a Jr. VIP status? Minimum requirement of 100 posts has been there for years.

    (1) Posts/threads get deleted sometimes, if you post in a thread which gets removed, your posts are gone too, which reflects in your post count.
    (2) There are a few people who won Jr. VIP membership before, years ago, if i'm not mistaken those didn't need to meet the Jr. VIP requirements.

    You need to renew your membership every year and also you should have altest 100 posts to become JuniorVip. May be your posts are deleted or you may had Donor membership.

    Check your emails, there was an email sent out informing everyone their auto payment subscriptions were being cancelled.
    That could be the reason.
