Pulling this announcement into a separate topic from the Vault 16 announcement--
 

We are transitioning the Vault from being hosted by Modlife to being a part of the Third Man Records web properties beginning May 1st. Heres what you need to know: Your last subscription payment and your deadline to sign up for Vault Package #16 remains April 30th, business as usual. This is also the final day The Vault will be hosted by Modlife.

Beginning May 1st, all online Vault activity will move to thirdmanstore.com/thevault. In order to a) have access to online content, and b ) maintain a continuous subscription, you must subscribe to the new and improved Vault. Platinum subscriptions for the new Vault  purchased between May 1st and July 31st will assure your order of the Vault Package #17, which will be announced in July.

0408080611Screen%20Shot%202013-04-04%20a

 
Swank also discussed this in a Vault chat concurrent to the announcement. I'll pull that discussion over here when I get a longer break from work, unless someone wants to beat me to it. They're sure to fill in more details between now and May 1st, and all questions are bound to be answered.

Very exciting, both for us and for them!

Here's the Vault chat, courtesy of trickster over at White Swirl.  Have to do it in parts because it's so long--

 

Part I (read from bottom to top):
 

<BenSwank> drdano: yes
<BenSwank> there's an info graphic posted in the blog post which explains the timeline and deadlines for it all

<drdano> BenSwank: will there be a automatic payment through paypal like before ?
<Jettkoral> BenSwank: Thank you so much\
<dmdv1> cmelo: me too
<trickster> BenSwank: sounds sweet
<Tamtaro> Thank goodness...modlife was difficult :/
<cmelo> dmdv1: no it isn't. i'm still excited. icon_e_wink.gif
<VaultVillains> that'll be nice
<nursejenn> Ivana3: sorry, missed that
<21x3> BenSwank: cool
<Nimativ096> BenSwank: will you be charged as soon as you make a new subscription?
<Jettkoral> BenSwank: Awesome
<BenSwank> and this site will tie in with the shop... so you will no longer have separate log ins
<dmdv1> cmelo: too late
<cmelo> BenSwank: nonmodlife comment. OMG on vault 16.
<Ivana3> leem96: check rumors
<BenSwank> and then you will need to re-subscribe through our site
<leem96> BenSwank: whats the new vault packag
<BenSwank> everyone's service will be cancelled via modlife after this current period
<21x3> BenSwank: so we dont automatically come back in as ourselves, we have to start all over pretty much?
<HappyDad> 3 months to subscribe now?
<Ivana3> nursejenn: he said yes
<ChelseaBoots> dmdv1: charming
<Ivana3> BenSwank: oh really now?
<nursejenn> BenSwank: will it be the same price?
<dmdv1> BenSwank: vault 16 looks the dogs bollocks
<BenSwank> drdano: they will not keep charging anyone
<BenSwank> we will have some incentives in place to get everyone to re-subscribe as well

<drdano> BenSwank: is that so they don't keep charging us ?
<BenSwank> VaultVillains: we know
<VaultVillains> cause modlife isn't.
<BenSwank> drdano: yes, and re-subscribe
<Ivana3> BenSwank: cool
<drdano> BenSwank: will we have to cancel our subscription here ?
<BenSwank> but it will be cell phone friendly
<BenSwank> Ivana3: working on that, but not when it launches

<dmdv1> BenSwank: what about foreign shipping?
<BenSwank> 21x3: exactly
<21x3> BenSwank: so no friending bullshit?
<Ivana3> BenSwank: app for iphone?
<ChelseaBoots> BenSwank: will there be beer and chicks?
<VaultVillains> BenSwank: vault 16 looks sweet...
<BenSwank> same costs as of now...
<dmdv1> BenSwank: awsum
<BenSwank> Ivana3: no
<BenSwank> dmdv1: yes

<Ivana3> BenSwank: will you charge us more $$$?
<leem96> BenSwank: whats the new vault package!?
<dmdv1> BenSwank: will it be cell phone friendly?
<BenSwank> 21x3: sorry, an you make your question more clear?
<trickster> BenSwank: VAULT STORE WOOOHOOOOOO! icon_e_biggrin.gif
<Ivana3> BenSwank: elucidate please
<BenSwank> so i won't reveal everything
<BenSwank> saying that we still want there to be some surprises, etc...

<21x3> BenSwank: what do you mean?
<BenSwank> modmail, that kind of stuff will be gone
<BenSwank> but it won't be set up like modlife is... as in it won't be like a social network
<dmdv1> BenSwank: excellent
<Ivana3> BenSwank: I've had A TON of coffee this morning
<BenSwank> there will still be chat rooms etc...
<Ivana3> BenSwank: sorry
<dmdv1> ChelseaBoots: hilariarse
<BenSwank> Ivana3: give me a second
<Ivana3> BenSwank: like...
<ChelseaBoots> ya wanna hear a funny coincidence? my subscription ends on may 1
<drdano> BenSwank: will we have to cancel our paypal automatic payment with modlife or will it do it itself ?
<BenSwank> Ivana3: ok, so first off... yes. you should be able to. but there will be some differences
<21x3> BenSwank: will everything transfer, like fan archive pics?
<Ivana3> BenSwank: after we switch
<BenSwank> so we can help communicate everything EARLY and CLEARLY
<Ivana3> BenSwank: can I get my old name back?
<dmdv1> BenSwank: hi Ben
<BenSwank> but I wantedt o come in here and answer some questions about the new site and or package
<trickster> BenSwank: will the new site have a chat feature?
<dmdv1> impaler

<21x3> BenSwank: good, not yelling this time
<Ivana3> BenSwank: hows it going
<dmdv1> runofthemill: my new name will be Todd the I paler
<trickster> BenSwank: hey ben

Will May 1 be the beginning of the vault store to?

 

Dunno.  I haven't read the full chat yet, is it mentioned in there?   If not, I'm sure there will be more info soon.

Someone remind me to update the "Vault & Modlife questions" thread when this thing launches.  Or do we want to just un-pin that one and pin this one in its place?  Any issues or questions about the new Third Man Vault could be asked/explained in here.

I knew it!  :D  SOOOOOOOOOOO happy to see it happen!

 

 

Edit:  Ooh, and another improvement--they're changing the names of the levels to gold and platinum, so there won't be all this confusion over platinum and premium.  :)

That was one of the best things I caught in the conversation. Still need to read the rest of it later.  I'm getting absolutely no work done today.  All TMR's fault...

What's the Vault?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

no, but seriously.  I guess I'll just let the modlife cancel itself out, and then renew for the TMR vault.
