TFCC has just sent out the following message:

Hello all,

Today we will be uploading our new set of store templates and testing them. Hopefully, if we don't find any major errors, we will be turning on the left over BotCon products, Runamuck, and other club items around noon CDT tomorrow.

Please note that you will be limited to ONE Runamuck and ONE Convention Pack (below) until we see how demand goes. Do not place a second order until we allow you, as we can see all of our orders by member and will cancel the order and charge a cancellation fee.

2012 Transformers Club Exclusive Runamuck (1 pc) $32.00

2012 BotCon Souvenir Combo Pack (Octopunch & Spinister 2pk, 2012 Comic Program, Trading Card Set) 4 pcs $110.00

We want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to get these pieces first hand without having to go to the secondary market. IF WE DON"T SELL OUT, as soon as the flurry abates, we will remove the limits.

I'll send out another email and we will tweet when the product is live.

Thanks for your patience!

Brian

Hmm... I did not get this email too...

Well, I never intended to get the Octopunch set, and I probably won't. Well, that probably cos it's the only one that never sold out. Spinister is cool, but not $110 cool. Could get the upcomming springger and repaint him myself. :lol:

Quick update on the status of the TFCC Club Store . As most of you already know TFCC's Club Store was brought back on-line today, and two high demand products were made available, Runamuck and the BotCon 2012 Souvenir Set Octopunch & Spinister. Apparently the demand for these two items was so high it crashed the store's server forcing the Club Store to be taken offline. They hope to have the necessary changes made and the Club Store back online in a few days.

Statement from the TFCC homepage:
Due to the high bandwidth demand for the Transformers' Club and BotCon products, we have been forced to take the store server for the Transformers Collectors' Club offline. The system our new store software was installed on will not support the bandwidth demands that are being placed on it. The store software company will be moving us to a different server with more capacity.

Thus, the Transformers Collectors' Club store will be offline for several days. We will let you know when we are operational again.

If you received a confirmation email or see a charge on your credit card, you have a good order in the system. This move will not affect any order that went through.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your enthusiasm about these products.


From the TFCC facebook page:
Our host had informed us that the store server has been taken offline as the heavy traffic kept causing it to crash. We will keep you posted as they address the issue on their end. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This happened before with Over run. You'd think they'll have prepared for this to happen again... but noooo....

PHASE ONE: Highly sought-after items in the club store.

PHASE TWO: Club Store crash after 'unexpected' surge in activity.

PHASE THREE: Everybody watch your credit card statements!

FunPub, didn't we learn our lesson in January when this happened?

My order went through, but the fact that the site crashed did nothing to inspire confidence in this sytem.

I will be watching my card again and probably will go ahead and just get a new card to avoid the crap from last time. I really don't want to deal with fraud on this in the event of a security leak.

If Mattycollector can handle a crap ton of people on their site on the 15th of each month then there is no reason you guys can't.

Why is it that servers never meet demands..With anything? Do people honestly always estimate the lowest number possible? If everyone was limited to 1 set of each item, How the heck could the server not handle it? It's not like Joe schmo scalper was sittin there throwin 20 of each set into his cart.

Myabe this was another "test" to see if it was going to work right..because you know, they might not have learned their lesson before...

Ah hell im tired of bitching about fun pub..its whatever at this point..

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Are they for real? First they have a system running on out dated software, so they move to one which can't handle a little bit of demand?

And I mean little bit ... I can't imagine there would be tens of thousands of people all clamouring at once to get onto the store.
