Knowing that rings is caused bu the two different plastics and in "between" the Slap and the encasement of the comic is nice to know.  I wasn't sure if it was oils agains the cover of the comic.  Which I would assume would freak people out more... but I'm pretty new to slabbing comics.

Reason to poof the threadhm

I was promised an announcement earlier this week which is why I held off posting. So this is either that announcement,  and is genuine, or a shill delivered coincidence. It seems genuine to me. Easy to prove - it just needs one of the known CGC /admin staff to confirm it.

Subject to it being confirmed, I'm glad they responded, regardless of the merits of the response, and I thank the member of staff who championed making the announcement behind the scenes. There are good people in the company who want to do the right thing. Good on them.

Thanks.

Just so I understand.  The old gen case was reholdered in July, and that case came back with newton rings.  Then you send it back for reholdering again (~3 weeks ago) to remove the newton rings, and when that case came back (on Monday) it still had newton rings.  Do I have that right?

Looks to me they haven't fixed anything. I'm seeing lots of these books coming back from different boardies and they look terrible. Why send it back to have the same thing come back. They haven't fixed anything with this problem.

Because this is caused by the two plastics coming in contact with one another, does that mean that the other guys don't use an inner well/sleeve? Can someone who knows explain how one company's product has a large amount of newton rings, while another company's doesn't?

we had a great thread on this back when and it got yanked because obviously it offended the powers to be and we never did get nothing but smoke and mirrors on how this problem was " fixed " but it was never " fixed ".

Ya but mine were definitely excessive and I sent the email with pics, and all I got was a blanket statement that these aren't causing damage, are on all their cases, and are considered normal and acceptable .... :shy: 

Either this was a "shill", or it came from the higher ups and no one in the correct department got the memo yet.... :sorry:

Maybe they just made this change yesterday(shrug)

What concerns me, is probably the same thing that concerned Ditch, @Ditch Fahrenheit

The person who posted the information did not have their name highlighted in a color. If you check the other administrators all post with red under their names. They used to be a different color on the old boards, but now it's red. When Mr. Harshen posted, it said "Director of Operations" under his name. 

There certainly might have been a change, but just seeing 2 posts and the words "just got here" seem a little unusual, so I'm waiting to hear from someone we know is definitely not a shill.

We made a new user name, but this is CGC

Great, then of course you don't mind if we ask for confirmation since your posts look  different from the other Admin ones.

@Scott =)

Hi Scott - could you confirm whether @CGC Comics is legitimate please or a wind up? I agree with Sharon that were it a genuine representative it would have a staff coded colour. 

Thanks

Before and after scans that I posted to the GA thread on Newton Rings.  I sent four books with very bad NRs in for reholdering.  Three of the four came back with essentially no NRs.  This one still has a couple (noticeable under her left eye).  Seems as if they now have a handle on the problem.
