So I purchased my LW11 upgrade on 11/10/11.

Now I'm getting an email signed by Rob Powers that their records show I haven't upgraded.
My account seems to be in order.

No links to marketing in that email to reply either. Only links to upgrade.
Way to annoy your User Base!

Yes, I'm still sitting on the fence and need to make a decision. The sticky in the Hardcore forums says that they'll give us a warning/reminder once the life cycle of the current release is coming to a close. I wonder if this is it. I'd certainly hate to lose my $395 upgrade if 12 should drop in the next several months.

I got the e-mail at work but not at home. Charter member with both licenses. I think they got their wires crossed somehow. :)

if 12 should drop in the next several months. I don't see that happening.

thanks. Im guessing that however their records are set up that they dont have a way to distinguish which charter members later upgraded so im guessing the email went out to every charter member.

Same here. Ill give the ma pass, since at least they are trying a more aggressive marketing approach. Now if they would just update LW text tools....

I've not gotten an email and I'm a charter member. So....

I did. However, it'd be great if they honored the offer and cut me a $100 refund, as the price quoted is $395. I'm in the second Charter tier; with a further second seat upgrade at the $695 price. Of course, if they'd move me into the first tier instead, that'd be great, too.

I got one, and I was please to discover my charter status. Since V.4 I think.

even though i think that is a great idea, and one that i fully support, there are plenty of areas to improve / choose from...

Yeah I can think of dozens of other things that are holding LW back before I would even consider text tools a priority.

We have two licenses here and both are up-to-date but I got the email too.

I think this is just an error with their mailing list and mailbot.

I don't think you should worry about it if your LightWave license is registered and visible in your account.

No, I'm pretty sure it means Rob wants me to have free upgrades, though I could be mistaken.
