Some activities, such as playing games, allow players to earn virtual money (called Franks) which can be used to buy clothing, accessories, house stuff, musical instruments (and more) for their character.

How do I change my membership package?
To change your membership package, simply cancel your recurring monthly membership and purchase the new membership package of your choice. Any remaining time from your monthly recurring membership will be added to your new membership.
How do I renew my membership?
If you purchased a monthly membership ($5.99) your membership will automatically renew each month to ensure uninterrupted membership service. If you purchased a pass (monthly or annual) you can simply purchase the membership package of your choice. As long as you use the same screen name and password when renewing, your membership will pick up right where it left off.
Note: If you currently have an active monthly recurring membership, you will not be allowed to renew your membership. You must first cancel your recurring billing and then renew your membership.
How do I change my method of payment?
To change your monthly membership fees to a new credit card, simply cancel your current membership and purchase a new membership using your updated information. As long as you use the same screen name, none of your items will be lost and any remaining membership time on your original membership will be added to your new membership.
Will my membership automatically renew?
The only time a membership will automatically renew is when you choose the monthly membership option, and select Credit Card from the list of payment options. This membership will automatically renew to ensure uninterrupted service. You can cancel this membership at anytime.
One month memberships purchased through PayPal, Surfpin, and PayByCash do not automatically renew.
How do I cancel my membership?
To cancel your recurring membership, click on the MY ACCOUNT button below, login using your screen name and password, click the CANCEL option, and follow the instructions.
Note: Membership cancellations only apply to monthly recurring memberships purchased using a credit card. You may cancel your membership at any time. You will still receive the full membership period that you have purchased.
How soon will the cancellation take effect?
When you cancel your membership, it will automatically expire at the end of the 30 days you have purchased. For example, if you purchase a membership on the 10th day of a month, and then cancel your membership, (immediately or otherwise) you will be charged one time only, and your membership will automatically expire on the 10th day of the following month.
Cancellations can be made at any time during your billing period. You will not lose any membership time by canceling early.
What happens to my character's items after cancellation?
If your membership expires you will not lose any inventory or money acquired while you were a member. However the following changes will occur:
* You will no longer have access to the member-only items in your inventory, including your skateboard.
* You will no longer be able to buy member-only items in the world.
* Your Music Player reverts to the default song list and songs cannot be changed.
* You will have only limited access to videos
* You will no longer have access to the Member's Only areas of town.
Don't worry! All of your character's settings, privileges, and member-specific inventory will be automatically restored when you renew.
