[14:04:31] <Bytram> I just noticed we had two more gift subs... have not yet checked expiration date for users... on my way to check that.
[14:05:19] <Bytram> checking "ilPapa"
[14:05:36] <Bytram> User "ilPapa" subscription ended 2016-12-17 UTC.
[14:05:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> can't figure that out unless they just want to send gift subs. every browser i load it in defaults to having sub for yourself as checked.
[14:06:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> meh, just give em the days. i can't be arsed to look into it today.
[14:06:31] <Bytram> I cannot think of a reason why someone would sign up for a subscription, having an *expired* subscription, and would prefer to give a gift sub instead of extending their own sub.
[14:06:37] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:06:51] <Bytram> but, I would like to find out what is happening so we can fix it.
[14:07:10] <Bytram> curiosity -- sign of a good QA/test guy... amirite? ;)
[14:07:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> is it only stripe subs that are doing it or paypal as well?
[14:08:08] <Bytram> last stripe sub was on 2018-02-20
[14:08:58] <Bytram> ilPapa paid $12.00 which netted us $11.35
[14:09:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> both then apparently
[14:09:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, that was a one month sub i guess
[14:09:55] <Bytram> note to self/posterity: $4.00 for 30 days; $12 for 180 days; $20 for 365 days
[14:10:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> anyway, i'm out for the day.
[14:10:07] <Bytram> nope... 3 'months'
[14:10:10] <Bytram> k
[14:11:01] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: you still here?
[14:11:19] <Bytram> the subscription page says that Stripe accepts BitCoin... didn't they drop that service?
[14:12:24] * Bytram just granted ilPapa 180 days subscription
[14:39:23] * Bytram sent him an e-mail asking for feedback as to what s/he saw and their intention, as well as notifying them that I granted them a 180-day extension
[14:39:53] <Bytram> oh.
[14:39:56] <Bytram> nice....
[14:40:45] <Bytram> the other subscription was by... "Anonymous Coward" -- don't see a way (at first blush) to grant 'em a renewal. Was in the amount of $20... which would have been a full year's sub.
[14:41:10] <Bytram> this is for subid: 829.
[14:41:44] <Bytram> 829 mcasadevall (6) Anonymous Coward 2018-03-03 22:29:17 $19.12 $20.00 ... paypal
[14:41:57] * Bytram has an idea
[14:50:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, AC can ONLY buy gift subs. that's entirely by design.
[14:51:04] <Bytram> IIRC, ACs do not see the subscribe link
[14:51:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> you don't RC then. log out and check.
[14:51:35] <Bytram> It's under the "You" sub-slashbox... okay
[14:52:32] <Bytram> ahhh, under the "Navigation" slashbox, I now see "Buy Gift Sub"
[14:52:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> gnawed gnawed
[14:53:07] * TheMightyBuzzard ponders giving AC a day worth of subscriber status
[14:54:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> naw, i ain't got time to test it on dev today.
[15:12:51] <Bytram> please check with me before doing that... it would mess up figuring how long people have gone w/o re-subscribing.
[15:13:22] * Bytram needs to head off... expecting a phone call
[15:13:24] <Bytram> laters
[16:19:43] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I'm thinking of updating the template for subscriptions to add a caution of some sort to help ensure that people are selecting the choice they really intend to.
[16:26:38] <Bytram> BTW, to answer my own question, Stripe will "stop processing Bitcoin transactions on April 23, 2018." cf: https://stripe.com
[16:26:38] <upstart> ^ 03Ending Bitcoin support
[16:26:38] <aqu4>  ^ "3429 Too Many Requests"
[16:26:41] <exec> └─ 13Ending Bitcoin support
[16:31:30] <Bytram> .
[16:32:07] <Bytram> hmmm, don't know if this affects us: https://stripe.com "We’ll be turning off support for all API requests to Stripe from servers using older versions of TLS on June 13, 2018."
[16:32:08] <upstart> ^ 03Completing an upgrade to TLS 1.2
[16:32:08] <aqu4>  ^ "3429 Too Many Requests"
[16:32:10] <exec> └─ 13Completing an upgrade to TLS 1.2
[16:32:40] <Bytram> .
[17:06:51] <Bytram> I dunno. I've been looking through the subscription template ( purchaseform;subscribe;default ) again, and it is not the clearest set of conditional statements I've ever seen, but it sure looks to me that we are selecting reasonable things in the *template*. I wonder if there may be an issue in subscribe.pl where it is expecting a particular string value and not seeing exactly what it is looking for?
[17:27:20] * Bytram found code for subscribe.pl on github, and read it through, and see no obvious issues. :P
[17:29:57] * Bytram notes stripe updated their docs and cleared out a whole bunch of test credit card numbers... happened to have a copy of the web page listing them before they got elided: %soydir%/Subscriptions/Stripe/docs/20151210a/stripe_testing.html
[17:30:56] <Bytram> .
[17:31:52] <Bytram> so, nothing obvious that I could tell. Think I'm gonna take a break this PM. we'll see how things work out.
