I am testing a new payment model, for now on a limited basis to select number of users.

In a nutshell, it allows users who use Gixen infrequently to purchase 6 15-day "chunks" of Gixen Mirror subscription at the same price as annual subscription ($6) and activate each chunk at the time of their choosing. The benefit is that non-activated chunks do not expire, so for users who use Gixen once or twice a year it makes sense to buy chunks instead of annual subscription.

Having a different payment model brings considerable complication, so I will be testing what the interest in this option will be. If I find it favourable, I will extend it to all users.

Sounds very useful.

We can buy mirror chunks & still use the free main server without activating a mirror chunk? I usually buy low value items on ebay. It would be great to activate a mirror chunk only when a more important item comes along that I want to snipe.

That's correct, and exactly the idea behind this.

I thought I received a positive answer from you when I queried re applying my already paid(unused)$6 annual mirror to become chunks. Since I rarely bid on e-bay this made total sense.

Today I entered several bids and do not see any indication that they are mirrored. Also I am getting the "slightly annoying countdown".

Whassup???

I do not recall when I paid the $6, but it was quite recent to the chunk offer.

TIA
