Is that me trying to convince you it was 400?

Congrats to anyone who got one!

I do think it was really generous of Tyler to offer it at that price. I did know before hand, and promised to keep it on the down low. Knew the info would come out in few minutes anyway (I still reserve the right to call out the $400 claim as bogus though 8) )

Was that ever verified?

It seems crazy to me that

1) he seemed to have been able to verify the answers and respond to xx amount of people in the short amount of time before he posted the winners were notified

2) VERY FEW winners here and on LostARGs. What do we have between the two, 5 winners?

3) that every single one of them has paid

if there were 45-50 of them
Yeah it seems odd to me too, but I'm sure its right. I just cant believe only maybe two people between the two sites got in - I cant find more than 2, maybe 3.

Oh well -- another losing day on those posters. If only I could have those two+ hours back this afternoon though.

That is cool that Tyler told you before hand and that is cool that he sold it for only 70 bucks...really facking awesome. He could have easily sold them for 500 and sold out within minutes.

The real douche is the person that said it was 400.

Don't think it was a conspiracy theory. He probably got rid of a few of the 50 through the presale contest, then 5 for the "super" contest (so what, 40 left...) and he most likely had some people helping him. I don't find it that hard to believe, especially because the people that got answers out that fast are probably die hard and paid ASAP.

I wasnt trying to imply any sort of conspiracy. I just wasnt even sure that it was ever verified he was selling all 50 that were given to him. Thought maybe he gave half to family and friends or something and only sold 20 or so. Did he say he was selling all 50?

And yeah, I get that diehards may have gotten the emails and paid for them, I just thought between here and ARGs there would be a lot more people with the answers and quick fingers.

Good on him to sell them at $70!

Except when you're obligated not to tell! I wasn't concerned with being the fastest at telling anyone anything. A little patience, and a few minutes later the info would come out. And it did. Everyone's happy. Apology accepted. No worries. Anyway, back to the important stuff...

I'm sure it'll take some time to process everything, but there are a lot of happy people out there who did get the poster. Sorry to those who didnt... 8)

Yeah, it 'd be nice if the ones that sold tonight stayed in the hands of the people who bought 'em.
