Are ya'll trying to say it will be another DHM shitshow? It'll prolly be an email lottery anyway. They seem to love that fudge.

Yes...it was quite the fiasco. :roll:
you're right - they did a good job.
They kept people updated on the situation. It was a tall order to print all of those out, especially with the amount of ink I heard was used on the Whalens.

yes exactly. Not a fan of that at all.
It was never once stated before the lottery that if you bought a folio, you would be entitled to any future DHM drop you wanted. They did this after the fact to help satisfy the customers that were disappointed in the long shipping delays.

Personally don't see a problem with taking a negative situation and trying to turn it into a positive to keep their customers who invested hundreds of dollars into their product, happy.

Ok well that makes sense then. Thought it was like a "hey buy this and get this in the future" thing.

What did eelus do for me when my after the rain took 8 months :hanging:

They only love that fudge because they're site can't handle a drop. I remember with the LD - Metropolis drop, it took the site an hour on my end to update to "Sold Out' from "Coming Soon."

We all know that lotteries aren't the answer blue.

Does anyone's site actually run well during drops? I would say Mondo's is the best, but that's not saying much. I've only ever tried a few other sites and most of them are terrible.

you deem fulfilling one's legal obligation "a good job?"

so basically, in your mind, the only way one could do a "bad job" would be to never ship the goods?

No..I'm asking the question of how didn't they do a good job in communicating and ultimately delivering on their product and how the situation was, as you described, a "fiasco"? Does a delay in delivery equal a "fiasco" to you?

Stout said on his site that he had a print comping up, so could be for DHM. Guess we will find out soon

Yes.

changing your tune - you didn't say that, at all.

you asked if i received mine - implying that merely receiving the goods one pays for constitutes a "good job."

to answer your second question - one that makes a whole lot more sense/actually gets at whether or not they did a "good job:" i'll go out on a limb and posit that customers are chiefly concerned with receiving the goods they paid for - high quality screen prints. they are NOT interested in long winded emails explaining delays, progess updates, assurances about just how hard they're working, etc.

who gives a fudge? all of that is inconsequential - everyone can sit down and write excuses. you don't get "bonus points" for explaining why you're unable to deliver what you promised in a reasonable time-frame.

it's real simple: customers pay you for a product - deliver the product in a timely fashion.

is it better to update people and communicate when things go wrong? yes. does that mean you're doing a good job? absolutely not.

that's the baseline minimum. it's expected.

it's also worth noting that the delay wasn't a week, two weeks, three weeks, etc. people ordered these things in october :lol:

in summation: couple all of that with the fact that many of these are arriving damaged - yes, this was a fiasco.
