I am a pro member, however whenever i go to Forums, the status of my Notary Desk button changes from my name to orange with Register.
Clicking on register just brings me back to my profile showing that I am already a pro member.
I went and re-checked, and found that it showed I should go pro now. I pressed that on the off chance, and voila...
I now have 2 years of membership (729 days). There seems to be something a bit off with the forum/membership logic.
