Wasn't there just a thread for this like a week or two ago, with the answer being that you can renew at any time, and the badge now pops as soon as you do that second year renewal. So, pay for a year, then immediately renew, get your badges.
Yes I could, but would that register with the system or is the badge given out manually?
