    Yo yo!
    Just wanted to give all of you a heads up, as I am sure you have heard rumblings about changes being made to the subscription, and the member portal. So I just wanted to hop in here and explain it all really quickly :slightly_smiling_face:

    So we are rolling out Tracks this week, as its own, standalone thing! So this means new members and old members reactivating can sign up for just Classics if they wanted to, or just Rap and HipHop if they want. There is a fancy new sign up flow and everything for that as well.

    For existing members, you are now allowed to Change your track to either be just Classics, or just HipHop. You can even change to Classics, and then add Essentials back, if you wanted to always get Classics, but be on more of a month to month basis with Essentials. Basically, we are giving the members even more ways to make their membership more their own, and get the most out of the money that you all give us so graciously.

    We are doing a soft roll out, as we still have some bugs to work out on some small things, and edge cases that will continue to roll in as more and more people take advantage of these changes, but it will be out in the open finally, and you will be able to get exactly what you want, every month.

    There are some other questions that I am sure you will have, so we will do our best to answer any that come up!

    So basically, if you don't like the AOTM, you can switch to R&HH or Classics and then switch back the following month?

    This may already be possible, but if I switch to Hip Hop or Classics will that Track have it's own swaps available for that month?

    And the price will be the same? For example, if I change my track to Classics, it will be the same price as an Essentials sub, and vice-versa? I may want to dip in and out of Essentials.

    Also, how will swaptions work?

    there's only 1 SWAPS list so it'll be the same no matter which track you're on, i.e. there's not a RHH-specific SWAPS list

    the price of your primary sub will be $29/mo, $81 for 3-month, etc. and the price of any add-on subs will be $23/mo - the cost will update accordingly as you drop add-on's, change primary sub, etc.

    Thanks for the official update, this is really great news!

    One question - if one was to cancel their membership entirely, for a month or longer, are they still able to re-join VMP with the same price structures available?

    Can people grandfathered in on lower prices switch tracks without an increase?
