They look great. I just put in my order... Smile

Good on you for trying to maintain some semblance of autonomy. Best of luck!

So only two people have had theirs delivered so far? Lame! They went out the day after they were ordered for almost everyone so far. Stupid postal system.

Thanks for the orders that have come in online the last few days - I've been away since Thursday night, but I'll have them in the post to you tomorrow.

Everyone else: roll up, roll up! Buy yer postcards online or buy them at the merchandise table at gigs. I'm still a way from even breaking even right now, and if I end up making a loss, I'll be so massively out of pocket I might have to close the forum for a while until I can afford to put it back online. *tears*

Sorry to be dour, but is the truth. Sad

Yay! More recipients! I'm really happy the reaction to the actual product has been really positive - I would hate for people to shell out only to be disappointed. Smile

From the way he looks into the camera I doubt you will ever get back any of the postcards Wink

Yeah, just got two packs and they are absolutely amazing. The first impression is that of utmost professionalism, the photos are amazing and the quality is excellent. 10/10.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, guys!

This will most likely be a one-off project since I still haven't covered the out-lay costs let alone made any money for the forum. It's what I would call a noble failure right now. *stiff upper lip is stiff* But Kali, let me know how many more sets you think you would like and I will set them aside for you so they are there when you can afford them.

By the by, congrats to Ave B user GO GO L: you are officially my biggest customer yet! Actually, you sit in joint first place with Mr. Hutz, who came and purchased the same number of sets as you in one go. You both get a gold star. Wink

That he is! The picture is blocked at work and I only just got to see it. N'awww. Very Happy

On a slightly less happy note, the hosting bill is now overdue and I simply. cannot. pay. it. If you think the death of the forum is an empty threat, think again: this place is going dowwwwn. Again, sorry for being so dour, but this place has been going for 4 years and this is the first time I've properly gone about fundraising rather than just digging deep in my own pockets.

I can't do it this year. It's simply not viable. If you like this place and don't want to see it offline/handed over to Sony to run, please please PLEASE buy a packet or two or three or whatever. One sale can make all the difference.

I haven't gotten mine yet but I think I'll scrounge up some more to get another set anyway, try to do what I can to keep the forum up. There's almost 2,000 members here! Come on people, those look like nice freaking postcards!

You guys who have already purchased shouldn't feel any responsibility to prop up the shortfall. You've done your bit and I love you for it. <3

That's the kind of thing that makes running this place worth the debt.

Ah... it was actually just for people who didn't trust me enough to Paypal money to me direct. I think it got used once in the end, so I didn't repeat it. Wink

If you don't have Paypal, you could always post concealed cash, though I wouldn't advise it. Are you in the UK? If so, a cheque would be fine...
