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.

    DR production might have the longest queue. My BCDR only arrived a couple weeks ago, after a 6 month wait. Well worth the time, though.

    All these recent posts about shortened lead times had me really excited...until I realised that I paid for bemberg on July 7th, which means neither of my jackets were in production before then :(

    2 months would be insane!

    I just have a sleeve of it: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=19233

    But IMO, it's a fantastic color, would look great as a jacket.

    I don't know if you understand how a queue works. Jacket production doesn't actually take that long. If your jacket went into production the day after you paid for the bemberg, you would probably have the jacket already.

    Most of the time is just waiting in line for your batch to get called up.

    You got me. I have no idea how queues work.

    Sure, the production time for a single jacket might not be that long, but these jackets are produces and shipped in batches, correct? And it takes time to produce, pack, and ship an entire batch of jackets. Also, as far as I'm aware, the type of jackets in production rotate also.

    I'm waiting on an MDR that I paid for on June 13th (2 days after the guy who received tracking for his 4-Zip Moto a couple pages back paid for his jacket). If my order was placed only 2 days after his, Can I assume my jacket will be in the next batch of jackets being produced, and I will therefore receive tracking imminently? I don't think so. If I'm lucky, it will be in the next batch of MDRs (assuming the quantity of MDRs ordered around that time period didn't exceed the production capability of a single batch).

    You're right that most of the time is spent waiting for your batch to come up, but it's still entirely useless to state that "if your jacket went into production on X date, you will receive your jacket on Y date" because none of us know when our jackets actually go into production.

    All I know is that it wasn't in production when I paid for the bemberg upgrade. That doesn't give me any idea when my jacket will actually be produced.

    I always wondered about the production process, like is a jacket finished per worker a day or is it more of a multiple day process in finishing a jacket. Just curius
