Store... [lives again! It is reborn...]

posted by TelltaleTool on - last edited - Viewed by 754 users

Hi all,

We'll be taking the store offline for some work starting in about two hours. During the maintenance, only the store and shopping carts will be affected. The main page, forums, blogs, comics, etc. should remain available.

The bad news:
No, we're not releasing Homestar Ruiner today. Sorry. We'll be announcing a release date soon.

The good news: Instead, we'll be releasing the very newest version of our store, with lots of improvements that should please those of you who've had trouble in the past!

Right now I can't predict too closely how long the store will be down for. Assuming all goes smoothly, it shouldn't be more than an hour or two.

  • The fact that you are now handling your own processing is pretty sweet. Thanks for a bit more on the details of this update. I know it wont affect my daily life, but I still enjoy hearing what is going on behind the scenes of these updates.

  • We have yet to see how it works out, but this should (hopefully) put a stop to a lot of the weird in appropriate customs charges and mislabeled boxes people have been getting. We'll have to wait and see once things actually start shipping out. It's going to be a better experience for sure, but how much better is still TBD.

  • It should also mean more reliable shipping overseas. Also, better packaging and such. Now I sit here all day watching my error report mailbox to see what goes wrong that we didn't find in the last month of testing :)

    Edit: Right after I wrote this, our UK test subject let me know he got his test shipment. It shipped on 7/3 and got there today (7/7), so that should say something about the improvement :)

    *wipes tear* I love you guys.

    (also, shouldn't that be 3/7, since it is your UK test subject?) ;)

    Yea, right! That's what my surgeon tells me! Seriously though, any improvement is good. And the warehouse news just warms my heart.

    If you want to test how well it works when you send things to Sweden, you can always hit me with some complementary Sam & Max merchandise and I'll tell you all about when it got here. How does that sound?

  • Yes sir, that is some neato news. Personally, I find the Strong Bad merch link very awesome.:D

  • Yay, I can see all of the shipping prices without having to select each one individually to compare them. :D

    Small glitch with the Billing and Shipping Address forms: If you change the selected country, the State/Province combo is replaced by a textbox, but the value remains. So if you had, for instance "Florida", you'd get "FL".

    Major problem: The process crashed after entering my billing information and hitting "Proceed to Next Step".

    "Sorry, something went wrong with your request. Our tech people have been notified."

    Edit: My street name has an apostrophe: that broke your code. Adding a second apostrophe solved the problem (e.g.: O''Reilly)

  • The first one's actually intentional. We might change it, though, if it causes problems.

    The second problem should be fixed now.

  • @Jake said: Feel free to test it by buying as many things as you can afford!


    What? Like nothing?
