I'm here from the beginning too. I took a subscription to CO (6 months) to be in the closed beta. I have a lifetime subscription. However, I have only 179 days taken into account ...
While others have already more than 200 days ?
Why Cryptic ?
I *think* that for lifetime subscribers they start the counter when they made their lifetime sub purchase, and then count back another 30 days for every extra copy of STO they got. Which would be another level of 'all hosed up' if they can do that for lifetime members and not regular subscribers.
But in all likelihood the monkeys in billing decided to play 52-card pickup with all the files that were supposed to go in the database that identified when each subscriber paid for STO and how many of which types of codes were applied to each account.
