1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I could go for a Brecon in Whiskey instead of the Chepstow. I would like to stay in the running for this boot, even though it is unlikely to commence for some months.

    Gentlemen,

    Please note the following:

    "We have 19 people that have paid now so we are just waiting for 4 more people min (5 if there is an additional person at all).

    I have been receiving e-mails that people may potentially be pulling out of this order so this therefore makes it harder to determine when the time estimation will be as then other people will have to fill these spots.

    I have had 2 e-mails this morning from other people adding on so hopefully the information from these will move through quickly.

    I shall keep you updated on this.

    Kindest regards,"

    This is just insane.

    I had no idea that this would develop into such a logistical monstrosity. My heart goes out to the shops like @Skoaktiebolaget that do GMTO's regularly, a new level of respect for them.

    What do you lads suppose we do?

    Thanks.

    If all parties would stop threatening to pull out of the order and bite the bullet until the end then all would be well.

    Welcome to America....the land of impatience....

    Thanks.

    People are horrible.

    In the future, GMTOs should be capped at 12.
    And the list of participants be known to all or at least to other participants so we know who to hate if they flake out.
    I was semi serious about a GMTO blacklist.

    The Shoe Healer Tricker's GMTOs are a lot smoother since they only require 6 and he only requires a 100GBP deposit and he can paypal invoice you.

    That is because you went AWOL for about 2 weeks when we in the midst of a headcount. We waited an additional 5 days for you to respond but did not receive any correspondence from you. Several members sent you PM's as well.

    Ok, I hear you. i was travelling. i had confirmed eariler, and then i believe you confirmed my message i sent around march 23rd "I hear you loud and clear". I think i sent both PM and responded in the thread.

    So what's the status?

    The status of what? As I've already stated, You did not reply during the final headcount and therefore your positioning in this GMTO has been forfeited.

    You've been moved to the wait-list. Should others drop out along the information collection process you may have a chance to reclaim a spot on this group order.

    Additionally I told you and everyone else explicitly not to PM me - yet you chose to do so anyhow.

    Failure to follow simple instructions. Good day sir.

    Might be a good idea to formally do a post to reopen the Warlow GMTO with relevant details again for the remaining 2 to 3 slots and wait list here, maybe ask Andy, and the Reddit GYW section. Competition for the remaining slots will force people to either ante up or lose out.

    Though this is a bit frustrating to say the least, thanks watchman1 for being the lead here.

    Unfortunately, I have to drop out of this GMTO. This should give an opportunity for @Falu_al to jump in however.

    Heard back after I emailed her today:

    "I now have all 12 participants ready so at the moment I am just going through and double checking everything with the Factory so it should not be too long now.

    I am hoping to get this done by tomorrow however I am getting sent to New York over the weekend so tomorrow is my last day in the office so I am really hoping it have it finalised if not then it will 100% be charged next Tuesday. I shall keep you posted on how I get on.

    I will try my hardest to have the cards charged before I go."

    Getting closer...
