Do not automatically update renewal date when admin changes level

We use a separate membership level for board members (the need came up when we wanted to have a section of the web site reserved for board members and couldn't find another way to do it other than limiting a section to a specific membership level).

When a member comes on to the board, her/his membership renewal date changes automatically to a year from the date of the change itself. This is a problem for us as the membership renewal date is independent from the board service date (one should not drive the other).

What I would like is for WA to ask whether the membership renewal date should be advanced or remain as part of the process of assigning a member to a different level.

Thank you.

    I moderated a little bit - found a thread with a similar problem from another forum, moved it into Wishlist and moved your comments to this thread.

    I think I have a slightly different issue. If the admin goes in and changes someone's Membership Level in the Membership tab, maybe to correct an error, or switch to a different category but at the same fee, or in advance of renewals, the system automatically moves the renewal date on by a year. If this is not noticed, they get up to a year's extra term! I think the default should be to leave the renewal date as is, or at least there should be a warning flag that it has changed.

    But, a member who is elected to a Board office should not have their "member since" date change, either.
