    Numbers are issues sequentially, as long as you order two of the same packages. There are no guarantees that this will happen, though. However, please note that one Overland Bound Membership is valid for you and your spouse to use. We have several folks sharing a number.

    Welcome guys! You'll need to talk to a moderator about the member numbers as they are assigned when you create an account even if you don't join right away.

    Thanks for the info...we joined (just got our ship to notification...FAST!) and bought one membership for now...still learning the ropes here, but Steve's insight was helpful as well.

    Waiting to get the "official" memberhsip # and swag pack...so until then, still enjoying the site and "posting lite." :grinning:

    He is talking about badge numbers. Those are automatically assigned upon placing an order. Forum member numbers and badge numbers are not related. The number shown under a Member's avatar is their badge number. Forum member numbers are not really shown anywhere other than in a member's profile link popup.

    Alrighty...we received our Ultimate Membership Package today...gotta say, really nice presentation. Everything was wrapped in tissue paper and stuck with a really nice OB logoed sticker...very impressive.

    Our membership certificate came in a really nice little cardboard sleeve, with a nice file binder string closure.

    It kinda felt like Christmas...

    So what do we do next...our membership # is 11626...thanks in advance @Steve

    Hi all,
    Yesterday I paid for Membership + One Emblem via PayPal. What are the next steps to get my membership number?

    Thank you.

    Much like a physician starting up a new practice...it's all about the patience. :wink:

    We recently joined OB, and I opted for text message updates...also received email updates on our order (Membership package, emblems, stickers, etc.) I was surprised that it arrived as quickly as it did, came in 5 days after purchase.

    Once you recieve your package, it will have a card with your new OB membership number. Once you have that in hand, post here @Steve and he will "upgrade" your forum account to reflect your membership # and place on the member map.

    Welcome to the crew! :sunglasses:

    Hello, and Happy 4th of July! Back in March of 2016 I thought I became a member when I purchased the (x2) badges and they arrived with the little certificate. However, later that year I became ill, and was out of work for 2.5 months, and my I pretty much quit all my hobbies and interests. I recently saw an OB link on FB, and was a little confused that I keep getting the "become a member" popups and links whenever I try to navigate. Am I doing something wrong? I may try again later, after a nap, as I am a bit tired after a 24 ending at 0700. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. IMG_3536.JPG IMG_3536.JPG IMG_3536.JPG

    Nope! Your Member banner never got toggles on. I just did that, so you should have access to the Member-only forums, the Member map, and other features.

    Welcome back!
