On the plus side the email also includes a link to allow those who were not sure if their order went through or not to confirm it. That's a very good thing.


In a bit of irony, I had to open my spam folder to even find the e-mail. I actually got several e-mails from them, one of which confirming that my order had in fact gone through. =P~

As far as the delay, I think the fandom would be far more forgiving if they didn't always have such a short window laid down by FunPub on the other end which in the past has included things such as a day or less for an exclusive (and this year the BotCon hotel, for the most part) and less than a week for last year's BotCon Primus packages.

I'd just like to formally say this is all my fault,...i was the guy who goaded them into starting the pre-order when they did,...(go look at their facebook page, and read the comments on the SG Drift picture on their wall,...I'm Jay) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=290913730967612&set=a.152760178116302.31570.151255348266785&type=1&ref=nf haha

anyways, to make a long story short, I at least got my order in,....i'm pretty sure my lightning fast fingers got the VERY first order in,...my order number is 60600,...and I double dog dare someone to have a lower number,...if ya do you win a nice shiny penny! (maybe we can have a mini-contest here to see who DID get the first order, i'm just kinda curious actually)

Well, my order still shows up using the link they provided, though I never did get a confirmation email. Hopefully my order did go through. I won't know for at least a few more days though most likely, because my bank is quite slow at updating recent transactions to my account. That means if it didn't go through, by the time I find out for certain, it will likely be too late as they'll be sold out.

I have two options here: 1. Leave it be and hope for the best (i.e., assume the order did go through as their website shows) 2. Purchase a second set and potentially end up with 2x the figures I wanted and end up wasting all that money.

I'm going with option 1. for now, I just hope I'm right :(.

edit: I just checked my email (again), and I finally DID get an order confirmation. Thank goodness. Looks like I was one of the lucky ones.

I hope that everyone else is able to get their figures as well once the site goes back up.

I knew something like this would happen so I'm glad I opted out this year, just never had the luck with picking up the popular exclusives and didnt really feel like stressing out on it.

God damnit. Another evening that I came straight home to preorder that I could have used for doing errands. This is whole ordering process is stupid.

Well my order is showing and I got an email yesterday confirming so I presume I'm in!

Strangely I have now received another email which appears to be a confirmation for a half completed transaction showing no shipping info 8-}

It appears to be an order status update so I'm guessing relates to the actual pre-order that has gone through. Other than my membership each year I've never actually purchased anything as the shipping costs to the uk are so high so I'm not sure how his will all work.

My membership update was screwed up as well, I had to call and they took care of it really quickly and pleasantly.


Unfortunately I was not able to get any of my attempts through before the shut down, so I have to try again.

fantastic.... they sold through 20% of their stock in 20min WITH massive credit card reading problems, I'd have to hazard a guess that the remainder will last an hour once pre-orders go live again, so effin glad that this is the first year I've ever signed up to TFCC and that I need both Runabout and Runamuck for my Infiltration set......

y'know guaranteeing 24 hour availability for pre-orders doesn"t seem like too much to ask for, does it? 1 full day of availability? Just 1 effin day?

Well, I won't get one then. I actually managed to find a job and start tomorrow- after three effing years and 1,046 applications in 20 states- and this happens.
:sad:
I quit. Damn you FunPub's credit card company. Damn you to the furthest, deepest depths of the 10th level of Hell for screwing this up. My only hope is that things fail tomorrow, too.

Fantabulous. Mine is due on Thursday, and I was hoping to get the pre-orders in and done long before that. (Actually, my subscription due date isn't supposed to be until April--yet another thing they messed up.)

I was one of the lucky ones. I got my order processed on my 3rd attempt. Damn those blasted "unknown error" messages I kept getting on my Mastercard, but my Visa worked and I got my confirmation e-mail. :D
