8. Q: Where are the news headlines?
A: You will find our news section on redicecreations.com, as usual. The members website redicemembers.com holds all our prduced content but no news. The members website is very similar in design, but if you find it difficult to destinguish between the sites, look at the URL and the title of the site "Red Ice Members" is titled clearly at the top for the members website and "Red Ice Creations" and "Red Ice Radio" for redicecreations.com
From redicecreations.com click on "members" in the menu from any page and you'll be redirected to redicemembers.com. From the members website you can click the Red Ice logo button to the top right and you will get back to redicecreations.com with the news. You can bookmark both sites. It couldn't be easier!
If you still find it confusing, we recommend that you subscribe to the RSS feed(s) on redicemembers.com to get the news and radio programs come directley to your computer or mobile device, it's a great way to get notified when new programs and headlines are posted.
9. Q: Why is my membership expiration date set way in the future?
A: If you subscribed when we had our old members section on redicecreations.com you have been imported to our new system on the new website. We assigned an expiration date far into the future so that we can garantee recurring subscriptions to remain active without unexpected termination. If you originally signed up for a recurring subscription, it will continue until you cancel. If you signed up for a one time payment, we won't and can't charge you for more than the period you originally sign up for (3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year or 2 years).
The quick answer is: don't pay any attention to the expiration date - it's not accurate - but we want to be clear that it will not cause any problems or affect the functionality of your membership. When your subscription ends you will, just as usual, receive an email with more information and a link where you can go to signup again on the new members system.

23. Q: Why the name Red Ice?
A: The idea for Red Ice was first formed in 2000-2001. In the begining the website was a video, graphics and music project but quickly grew into a persuit of all things authentic, real and true. The name Red Ice has a lot of different symbolic meanings. Red Ice represents hot and cold, red and blue, north and south, non-physical and physical, basically two opposites. Not from a Marxist dialectic point of view, but from a perspective of creation. "Red" has nothing to do with the political association the color holds today. (No one "owns" the color red and we've decided to take it back). Red Ice has everything to do with the scandinavian background of the founder. The Norse creation myth tells how everything in the world came into existence in the gap between fire and ice. This is the essence of the name. Red represents heat, urgency and speed - short-term. Ice represents cold, patience and slowed down - long-term. Creation takes place in the right zone between these two powerful forces. A perfect balance between these two extremes creates the conditions for life and consequently it's in this very environment that our spirit can come into the physical world. This is the "Creations" part of our name. The heat of the sun and the coldness of space, we wouldn't be here if one overpowered the other.
24. Q: When I login, why does it say "username and password will be sent in an insecure manner" / "You password will be sent unencrypted"?
A: The username and password is being sent over HTTP and not HTTPS (secure communication). Thatís why the "unencrypted" or "insecure" message appears in certain browsers as you log in. It basically means that your username and password is being sent ďas isĒ and not in an encrypted manner. The majority of the communication online is not secure (HTTP), although an increasing amount of website are switching to secure (HTTPS).
If you are concerned with security, until we've aquired a SSL Certificates, make sure you use a unique password for redicemembers.com, one that you donít use anywhere else online for other accounts. You can edit your password under "My account" / "Edit Profile."
All monetary transactions are handled through PayPal who use HTTPS (secure communication). We do not store any of your PayPal information on our servers so when you sign up or adding/renew your subscription your data is secure with PayPal's service.
25. Q: Are you compatible with Kindle Fire HD?
A: Yes, the site has been tested and confirmed to function 100% with Kindle Fire HD. Downloading files to you computer and transfering them to your tablet is not a problem either.
For more information specific about help for Kindle Fire HD tablets go here.
26. Q: Why doesn't iTunes ask me for my username & password?
A: A bug in the new iTunes software is preventing some listeners from accessing the password protected RSS feed(s) when using iTunes. If you are experiencing this problem please check out our iTunes page for a solution here.
27. Q: Do you accept prepaid gift cards?
A: Yes, through PayPal you can use a prepaid gift card. More info here.
Keep in mind the following:
1. When you are signing up you can't use the recurring option (the top option we have on our sign up page.) Choose a one time payment.
2. If you have issues read how to resolve the address issue with the prepaid gift card. Since Red Ice is an international merchant (from a USA
perspective) an address is needed. Resolve issue by regestering your address with the card issuer. See the fourth question: "I'm using a prepaid
gift card, and I'm getting a declined message" at link for more information.
