Dumb question about subscriptions: What if we're already subscribed, does it add onto the end of the current subscription?

Not a dumb question at all. In fact, it's one of the most common ones. Answer: Yes it does. It'll just tack another year onto your sub.

Damn, pretty sure I just renewed. Any idea how long this will last this time?

Ordered mine last night. Do the stickers just have one level of dork or do you send out our level of dorkdom (ultima-, mega-, super-, etc)

How long this deal will last? It'll close on October 31.

In reply to KyAllroad:

Unfortunately we have to take a one size fits all approach to the stickers. You're free to make your own modifications, though.

I'd cut the word "DORK" off for starters. Who was the marketing genius who decided to give away stickers that don't actually spell out the name of the company or product and also have a slang term for cock on them?

Mine had GRM on it in small letters with a big white dork below it.

I don't care how cool the stickers are, I'm not putting one on my dork.

Sounds like you've been the victim of some kind of customer service foul-up. PM me your name and address and what happened and I will get you sorted out.

Speaking of, who do I talk to about a subscription that was bought as a birthday gift to me... except my crazy mother had the magazine sent to an address that I haven't lived at in like 8 years?

If you can't get in through Subscriber Services, give the office a call and ask for me. I can take it down and get it to the right place for you. Contact info.

I just assumed he doesn't post on the forums much. I think my Dork status is not too surprising considering that in the past i was the #2 overall poster on a forum with 10,000 registered users (at that time). I think everyone would be a little RELIEVED about my gradually dimming enthusiasm for forums if they only knew how prolific i USED to be.

Is this another 'murican thing only or can Canucks have access to this sweet deal?

It absolutely works for Canada. Just make sure you select that option between Domestic, Canada, and international.

Can I get one for a Classic Motorsports sub as well? I've got about 8 years left on the GRM, but I haven't ever subscribed to CM.

I went through what is left of my memory and I think it was only t-shirt I didn't get from here. I don't remember things like this unless I am away from a computer. I will PM when I am sure.

I haven't been here very long, and I don't post much because most of what I say gets ignore. I do post questions here, and I get lots of great help so maybe I will reach half-dork someday.

Got it. I'm here when you do reach out.

We do sometimes get questions about missing t-shirts from people who did bill-me subscriptions--even though we try to make it extra clear, they don't always read the order form and catch that you only get a t-shirt if you include payment when you order.

Well there's no Dork deal for Classic if that's what you're asking. However you can get a discounted subscription to Classic Motorsports right here.

Toyman, I know a guy. Drop me an email and I will make sure you get a Dork sticker with that Classic renewal. But shhhh, don't tell anyone I did this...

I don't check my mail often but checked today and found a hand addressed envelope with this inside.

Only problem is I can't decide what vehicle to put it on.

Sounds like dork decal indecision. It could lead to dork decal anxiety.

Happens to me when I get one anyway.

Mine showed up a few days ago just as I was about to email.
