Best thing about L2, apart from it being a wonderful resource, a way of supporting this wonderful site and how it's one of the last sensible and informative places on the internet for space flight? Jim is actually polite to people in there. Seeing that has to a catalyst for some people to take the plunge!
A question. Can I purchase a L2 subscription for my son? I want it as a stocking filler for him on Christmas Day, so any way to purchase it now, and on Christmas Day for it to be activated and for me to provide him with login details so he has access?Thanks,Danny. Space fan and father to a potential Mars astronaut.

Long answer is while an automated subscription system is often used by sites, ours has a human touch (i.e. me) where L2 subscription notifications are received by me and I then upgrade the member into L2. It allows me to correctly allocate the subscription and also thank the person for supporting the site (opening the line of communication should any member have any questions). We've worked gift subscriptions over the years and it's pretty easy. 1) Complete the L2 subscription process here: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=41197.0 2) Add your requirements in the PM (as shown on the above link), noting it's a gift, when it's going to be active from (in this case I'd activate it before Christmas, so he's ready to go on Christmas Day - the first day of the term). And if you want me to set up an account for him (or if you're going to do it, to which I'd only need the username for me to upgrade). 3) Your son's account will have the welcome and overview message PM ready for him to read from the moment he first logs in and that acts like the front day (welcome, rules and great first links to use, such as our L2 Hall Of Fame). Hope that helps! Chris.
