Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions Section. Scroll downward to find answers to common concerns regarding this website.
Q: Why become a Member?
A: By becoming a Member of this website, a Member Account will be automatically generated for you. You may personalize it and also have access to member features. Being a member also grants you access to subscription plans and purchase of physical products.
Other member features are as follows:
- My Account: This section holds your personal information such as Display Name and Profile Visability.
Note: Currently, it is not possible for you to edit your password from the Member Profile – you can edit your password externally via the login form. Just click “Forgot Password”.
- My Addresses: Complete this section as this information is needed to ship physical product to you when ordered through the store section.
- My Subscriptions: View and Manage your purchased Subscriptions.
- My Orders: Selecting this menu item will display the status of any product you have purchased with a status of fulfillment. Products may be physical items for sale, shipping details, and/or backorders.
- Stored Payment Profile: (Optional) Should you make a purchase using the site’s check-out process, your account will automatically save your method of payment here. You will see all pending and fulfilled orders in the My Orders or My Subscriptions sections. You may use the Stored Payment Profile section to save, update or remove your payment information at any time.
Q: As a Member, is the transfer of my personal and financial information safe?
A: Yes! The transfer of your personal information and financial data from your computer to this website, is secured. The “https:” within the address bar to the left of the domain name states you are using a secured connection. This is shown as a padlock graphic to the left of the scheme https: on the address bar as well. The closed padlock graphic also shows that the connection is secured. The “s” letter, at the end of the scheme “https:” stands for “secured”. Websites without the “s” do not have a secured connection and also show an open padlock graphic therefore, any transfer of critical information is likely to be seen by those attempting to steal your data. Your connection to this website is a secured connection and therefore, all transfer of critical data (such as passwords, credit card numbers or personal information) is encrypted. Data encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorized individuals to view information traveling between your computer and this website. This website uses a 128 bit encryption method.
Q: Do I need to become a Member in order to Subscribe or purchase physical products?
A: No, you do not need to register or become a Member first but you will indirectly become a Member as an account will be created once you enter your financial information for payment and shipping should you purchase physical or virtual products. Virtual products, such as subscriptions, do not require address information for shipping (as in the My Addresses Section of the Member’s Account) as they will either be emailed to you or automatically give you access to Member’s only subscription pages. It is recommended you become a Member first to enter critical information to allow for smoother transactions when making a purchase and shipping.

Q: I am a Member and have subscribed to one of the Plans but cannot access the pages I paid for. What should I do?
A: This is a resolvable, small quirk of this website – not all users encounter this. We have found by simply clicking “reload” (the “arrow in a circle formation” graphic to the left of the address bar in Firefox), resets the page and access is therefore established and the page operates normally. We have also found that different browsers and browser settings sometimes affect this issue. A dynamic, or rotating internet protocol (IP) may also cause an issue more-so than a static IP – most consumer or home based internet services provide a dynamic IP configuration therefore, more consumers may experience this issue - Again, not all users encounter this.
Q: I want to give a donation or tip using the website Tip Jar. Do I need to become a Member first for that?
A: No, Tips and website donations are considered a separate task transaction and no financial data is stored - only a record of a transaction with no details is noted therefore, no Member account will be automatically created. The only record of any transaction using the Tip Jar would be an emailed “thank you” from the website bot or Robert himself and through your financial institution as a notification.
Q: I am at one of Robert's performances and would like to buy a product from him directly using my credit or debit card. Can I pay for it using the Tip Jar section of the website?
A: Yes! In-person purchases are considered a separate task transaction and no financial data is stored - only a record of a transaction with no details is noted therefore, no Member account will be automatically created. The only record of any transaction using the Tip Jar would be an emailed “thank you” from the website bot or Robert himself and through your financial institution as a notification.
