Wow, you want a partial refund on a donation because the number increased on your print, even though you're still getting a signed print?
Wow I'm glad you posted that because I couldn't think of a way to ask that question without using the words "greedy, selfish, and douchebag"....

I'd like a partial refund because my # is 702.

Sounds a little ridiculous, doesn't it.

That's all implied in the "Wow" portion of the post.

On the outside, this seems like a really immature move. :clap: You are donating to a political organization; this is not like hustling somebody on craigslist.

the way you said it made it sound like you wanted a replacement and a partial refund. you want to keep the damaged one and get a partial refund, that's different. merry donkeymas!

To me, your post made it sound like you wanted a replacement poster AND a partial refund because your replacement was going to be a higher number than your first poster. If that's not what you meant, then your request does appear to be more reasonable.

My poster arrived today and is in near perfect condition, # in the high 2000. There is a bit of wrinkle at the top end where it was rolled too tight, no creases.
A question for you experts. Can I remove those wrinkles with an iron? I heard of this being done before, Thanks

Agreed.
That isn't what he meant, you guys had it right the first time. AFTER receiving the response that he'll get a replacement he posted, that he asked if he could get a partial refund since his print was in the 500's (MoveOn stated they'd get him a print later in the series of a 1000). To quote him "We'll see what he says".

It'd be nice if the print arrived MINT but under the circumstances you should just be happy they have a replacement to send you. I am sure if they told you to send back the damage print postage paid by MoveOn and they'd refund your money 100% you'd be an unhappy donkeycamper.

i think its absolutely ridiculous for someone to think they should get a partial refund for a low numbered print.

I agree. They could have given him #999 in the first place. There should be no compensation for a higher serial number because no preference was implied with purchase. They simply said it would be 1-1000. Therefore if it is in that range, regardless of the the number, then you got exactly what you paid for.

The sad thing is that people like this ruin goodwill for everyone else with legitimate problems.

I hate DMB fans.

I got my "3 pack" today... all three came in one cardboard drinking straw (never seen such a thin tube) and there was quite a lot of scrunched edge damage (i knew that I should have filled out those damn surveys from moveon.org). I have not received my numbered print yet, but I hope to Jesus that it is in better shape than the three pack posters.
