    [EN] Dear members and friends of ipernity! Some of you may have noticed that membership renewals via Skrill are not possible any more. We tried everything to keep this payment option.

It is common that other customers of Skrill suffered the same inconveniences. We are now exploring possible alternatives and their fea…
