so you're saying bots will score most of these now. Cool.

Worse than Etsy. At least seemed to have a chance from time to time on there. The new site looked pretty, and I saw them pop up, but shopify is notorious for the bots (thanks to Mondo and the other places that use it) and had no chance.

In the meantime, ISO today's peeks - please PM me!

methinks the ones hassling him to go the Shopify route might have been the bot havers :P

Would love to hear if ANYONE that normally gets these had luck? Or maybe Brad can let us know if he had anybody happy with the new system?
I get there will typically be more demand than supply...but haven't heard a single person say they got one so far.

The sad truth. I scored manual with my address saved in the account ahead of time and my CC auto filled via google chrome. Some people are just better at doing this than others.

Oh sorry again, I wasn't complaining as I didn't even try for the drop. Was just trying to get peoples reactions that did go for it.
Awesome if you both got one manually that sounds good!

Glad some people scored without a bot, but there were absolutely some bots being used on this drop. Not saying there were 60 bots out there, but...yeah.

Even if by some magic alchemy there were no bots used today, bots will be used for Peek drops in the future. A shopify bot is one of the eeeeeasiest bots you can acquire, and once people figure out that bot-buyin is cheaper than some of these aftermarket Peeks, well...you know.

Yeah, sorry... didn't mean you. Just the ones that jump straight to "I only missed because shopify caters to bots" type comments
