Dear LinkinPark.com community member,

We are getting ready to migrate LinkinPark.com to a brand new platform. Below is helpful information on what's to come in the upcoming weeks.

Please read carefully.

 

Your LinkinPark.com Account

Your account is currently registered under the email address where you received this message. You will need to use this same email address to activate your new account, and you have until August 14th to update any of your information. Making any changes to your account after August 14th will not be possible until on or around August 29th.

 

When will the migration take place?

On or around August 29th, you will receive an email with instructions on how to activate your new LinkinPark.com account. LinkinPark.com will look the same, and we are working on launching a brand new design for the near future.

 

I'm an LPU Member, how does this affect me?

Your membership expiration date won't change. We will be bringing over all of your LPU membership information onto the new platform. On August 15th, the LPU Store and all LPU Membership products will be unavailable for purchase until the launch of the new LPU Store. LinkinPark.com and the LPU Hub will look the same for now.

 

Can I still buy an LPU 15 Bundle or renew my membership before the migration?

If you haven't purchased an LPU 15 Bundle, or renewed your membership, we encourage you to do so before August 15th. You will also have the ability to purchase an LPU membership or LPU 15 Bundle after the new LPU Store launches.

Visit the LPU Store: LinkinPark.com/LPUStore

  • Fan Blogs
  • Older post comments won't be migrated

They should bring back the email feature, somehow link it with Outlook... it was really cool to have a @linkinpark.com address.

Yeah, it would be pretty nice to have that, I don't see why they don't bring that back

I hope the interface is improved. There has to be SOME reason why they are changing it in the middle of the LPU year. I just wish they would've listened to our DSP petition :(

I just tried to log in via the LPU using my Facebook login as the popup login box recommends, and got this:

 

"Hey,

Someone has requested to log in to Metallica via Facebook Login using an account associated with this email address. If you would like to allow access to your account click the link below.
Confirm Facebook Login
If this was not you, feel free to ignore this email. No further action is required to block access."
:lol:

I really don't care for whatever they did to the site. They got rid of all the photos from the Meet & Greets and Summits. They got rid of a shit ton of LPUTV. They got rid of all the LPU15 tracks that you can download by becoming a full member, even though the final LPU15 track still hasn't been released and anyone that joins now won't be able to get the full album, which sucks.

I think the missing content is temporary, to my knowledge they're still moving stuff over from the old system. The new system is a bit weird, but it's something I'm sure we'll get used to, here's the link to the free downloads though: https://linkinpark.com/store/free-downloads
