    Because it's Valentine's Day, but mostly as a thanks for your contributions to the site, those who achieve the Beer Karma level that we loving refer to as Poo-Bah will automatically be awarded a complimentary membership to our Respect Beer Society.
    • Already a Poo-Bah? Account upgrades are rolling out now based on when you last logged in. So if you log in and don't see it, be patient.
    • Already a Society member? You don't need to do anything, and you'll still be a member when your current paid membership expires.
    • Upon reaching Poo-Bah, the system will automatically award your membership.
    • If your points drop below the Poo-Bah threshold (currently 1,500 or above), or we change the threshold, your membership will be removed until you meet the threshold again.
    Questions? Let me know.

    Love ya, Poo-Bahs! :heart_eyes:

    Now there's a nice perk. And it's strictly a reward for contributions made to BA. Nice job.
