  1. A farewell worthy of a king. I wish I would have been able to make the Facebook page a little more active, but the last thing I wanted was the page to become another rehash of articles and posts shared, copied, and "borrowed" from other online sources. In hindsight, maybe that was the way to go. I met a few very nice people on those message boards and I'm happy to see many of those online friendships carry over to here.

    The time stamp isn't correct

    +1 It would be nice if this would be extended to the PMs as well.
  3. I don't think you can. I also do not think it shows if a PM has been edited. The only way I can think of is to have the PM notifications sent to email, and then go by the timestamp of the email. This would also be the only way (besides quoting or screen capture) to save the original, un-edited PM. This is a very good point that I hadn't thought of yet...and needs some discussion! I can't believe we haven't had serious drama (at least that I know of) stemming from this problem yet. So, even if we have PMs sent to e-mail, the imprecision of the software timing display still seems to be a problem. For example, suppose I'm running a sales thread per my usual "time stamp anywhere wins" rule. I go to sleep at 11pm, and wake up and check my sales thread at 6am. I have an e-mail of a PM "take it" notification with an e-mail time of, say, 1:20am. There's also a "take it" posted in the sales thread, and the only time information on that sales thread post says "5 hours ago" (which seems to be the precision with which this software displays post timing). Which one was first?? The sales thread post could have been at 1:15am...but it also could have been at 1:25am. What do we do??? It's crazy. The only thing I can think of is to make a stipulation in the rules of the sales thread that any book will be available for purchase until it is officially marked as claimed by either the buyer of the seller. Even then, The not being marked as edited bothers me as well. What's to stop someone from claiming a book via PM at a specific price, then going back later to alter the price. Unless the seller has PMs sent to email, there would be no way to know. An honest seller could technically be put on the PL by a dishonest buyer for not honoring the "fake" agreed upon price without proof to back it up. In this situation I would tell sellers to protect yourself by always quoting any price or stipulations given in a PM.... buyers too, I guess. Or just like everything else around here.

This would also be the only way (besides quoting or screen capture) to save the original, un-edited PM. In other words, be careful with the PM system on these new boards.

    How often do you buy from Mile High Comics?

    I purchased a nice stack of cheapie comics this past Memorial Day while their 60% off sale was going on, which actually brought the prices down to a more realistic number. My order confirmation was sent on May 28th My acknowledgement of order confirmation and order number was sent on June 1st A message telling me my order was being processed was sent on June 12th A message finalizing the processing of my order was sent on June 15th along with a separate message telling me my debit card was charged for the order. On June 20th I received my FedEx tracking number Package delivered on June 23rd. A little long from start to finish, but all-in-all not a bad transaction. The books looked just fine and were packaged well. I do think an update on their website would do them a world of good, to say the least.
