I got a 24 hour pass, but when I tried to gift it to another CR mamber I got told:
Invalid Issuing User Premium Status

The recipient is not a Premium user, he's a Normal user. I'm a Normal user and have received a 24 hour pass before, so I think a Normal user can get one. What is it whining about? Does the recipient have to be a Buddy so I can communicate a Gift?

The user issuing the pass must be a Premium user. If you received one from CR, instead of another user, it was either for your own use, or issued by mistake.

I got it at the end of my most recent Premium month. There's no mention of a restriction on gifting it. Is there a Help page about these things?

Nothing that I am aware of, other than the information on your Guest Pass page, which I note states at the end:


* Unredeemed Guest Passes will expire after 90 days, so don't forget to give them to your friends! Guest Passes will expire if your Premium Membership expires.


If you want, PM me the member name of the person you were trying to gift to, and I'll send them them one of mine.

Oh, I hadn't noticed that page. I clicked on the link in the Guest Pass notification PM, which took me to the three-option gifting page. I think the pass was issued on the day, or the day after, my Premium month ended... and the status says "All-Access Guest Pass - 24 Hours Valid 07/31/11 Not Redeemed Yet", so it doesn't seem to have expired. If it's not behaving the way CR intends, something isn't right... and if it was about to expire for whatever reason, I hope I'd get a PM similar to the gifting PM. I'll look at this again on Saturday.

Agh. I was going to use a Guest Pass which I had received, and see if I could Gift my new pass during that time. But the Guest Pass silently expired sometime. Maybe the message when you've received a Guest Pass should include the expiration date, in case you don't know about the page which lists your Passes.

Well, I still have this recent Pass, and I have $5 in CR credits, so it won't cost me much more to get a month and be able to gift this pass.
