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,

    Considering selling one of my full leather spots ($870 from Dec 21013), to put the funding into some other clothing items.
    (PM me if interested)


    BTW - Has anyone ever posted the guidelines for selling a spot? (Details on how to send paypal $, how to notify Charly, etc)

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson, you should have gone with the Charly Special.

    Last update was 1/19.
    I think it's time we get another update from the God himself.

    "Last update ended up being mostly lies. Another update full of lies would definitely make us feel better!"

    I dont understand why drew seems to prefer writing updates in a very optimistic (lying) tone, while in essence, we want transparency and honesty. I rather have him straight up tell us " I have no estimate on when your jacket is coming, but we are working on it"
    then check back in periodically like.. idk every two weeks? fuck it. he can tweet it and keep it under 140 characters and it would be amazing.

    I don't care if I'm being lied to or misled in the update, it's happened so many times already that I'm just numb to it all. At least we get to hear what he says and then somewhat hold him accountable for it.

    Also, hearing that Charly is not being compensated for his work makes this situation even more fucked up. I don't know what drives him to even deal with it anymore. I'm sure he knows things that we don't, but he hasn't crossed that threshold yet?

    Drew is already being held accountable for a lot of things. An update from him won't change anything unless you find some sort of excitement of being led on.

    When a transaction is going poorly, I'd rather be in regular communication with the seller than dealing with a silent merchant.

    People just want assurance/confirmation that things are moving along. Seeing a jacket pop up here and there is definitely helping, but why act like having Drew update is a pointless endevour? It's the only way to learn whats going on at TOJ at all

    Because you won't get a complete and/or honest answer. Then it will be another round of bitching and whining when expectations aren't met. It's a cycle that keeps happening. Either you wait it out or take @Two Shoes's advice.

    Also, his communication isn't regular. It's sporadic at best. I say fund @Distorbiant's trip to get those answers.

    I'm inclined to say that it's both of these things.

    Yea, I mean, I agree, I wasn't responding to you, but to those that were searching for a reason why charly would continue even without being handed a paycheck
