Hi everyone,

given that the year's first email reminding everyone to renew their
memberships was sent on Feb 7 when the renewal was NOT open yet, I
wonder how many people thought they had already renewed and are now
thinking they don't need to do anything?

I fell for that: On Feb 7, I went to members.x.org to check my status,
it said I was registered for "2023-2024" and there was no button to
renew, so I closed the page confident that I was a member for 2024.
After all, it said 2024. This was a mistake I realised only after being
personally poked to renew. I know for sure of one other person falling
for the same.

Now, the members page for this year says "Application for the period:
02/2024-02/2025". Thanks to the people adding the month to reduce
