Nope, that's what "*ON* level up" means. Not retroactively. Same with the respecs. Everything is tied to the promotion missions at 10, 20, 30, 40, 45, 50, flipping a switch.

If so do you keep those benefits if the subscription expires, the extra bank and inventory slots.
Yes you do keep the slots earned.

As I understand it past gold members who have gone silver have the account bank feature as well, but I may be wrong.
Yes, I have 20 slots.

Oh and what does priority login mean? Is that possibly what is causing my server disconnects, the fact that I only have a silver account?
During the Season 6 launch there was about a 6 hour span where we saw login queues. Golds got in to play first. That's all that means. Has nothing to do with disconnects.

It made things pretty frustrating for fleets with leaders who are silvers and couldn't get in to set the permissions. But that's all gone now.

I went "gold for a month" and got the extra slots, even on already leveled characters. The only thing I didn't get retroactively was the respec tokens.

Thanks, yeah I am not very concerned with respec tokens, but am very curious about the additional storage space. If a 2nd person can confirm this I will most likely buy the 3 month gold membership.

The way I feel about the game at the moment and Cryptic/PWE I say my answer is a very firm NO will stay Silver

So Silver members can either spend $20 for 20 of the new Account bank slots (and how ever much else for the rest of the Gold perks) or they can spend $30 and get $15 worth of Zen as well as 20 Account Bank slots and all the purchasable Gold perks they would otherwise have to spend Zen for. Seems like a no brainer to me... Sadly I'm already a LTS

I'm tempted by this, but I also have no money at the moment. So what exactly is the definition of "limited time" here?

I was hoping for a sale on lifetime. Missed out on the previous one by just a dozen or so hours.

when I saw the Champions Online sale, I thought, well if we get it, this will be more expensive.
I am hope I am wrong, and might even get this subscription, for a new character to level

I can confirm. All gold perks are rewared retroactively, with the exception of respecctokens. If your toon is already captain or higher, I might add, you can ignore the ranking up quests, and keep them for times you sub. You will get respecctokens then, and captain ships are strong enough to advance till VA.
Having C-Store ships is a plus doing this.

I started a toon two days ago and resubbed for it. Had I known of the sale, I would have gotten it. Since I don't need any more ZEN, and won't play another toon for a long time, I don't mind though

If only the subscription was always 10 bucks per month, I might have considered subbing for several month in a row though. So, good catch on this one.

Anyone silver, who has 30 bucks to spare, use this opportunity, it is really worth it (this time)!
