Because of the Group 2 issue with slots being available I figured it would be best for the break that we just have one set price for group 3 to get the break paid for, in which hester came in purchased all 10.

I bet if you ask hester nicely he will give up a slot or two either at cost or a couple bucks above.

A couple bucks above would be fair being everyone probably would have waited until the final price drop in which hester still would have gotten the 10 slots.
It would have been nice to find out though.... that was the whole point of this type of break, not?

So the price dropping format is still in effect.
sure...

Really though, I am fine with it...

I was waiting for the pricing too and all of a sudden it's $15 and all gone with one swoop.

With what happened with the price drops throughout the process, it just seemed going to the end made more sense.

Everyone was waiting to the end. Heck, Group 2 went beyond the final price drop. So it really didn't work out well.

I'll be going with a more stable format with the next break, which was posted on the first page of this thread.

3 groups. One set price for each.

Once again, my appologies to anyone who is upset about how the final group sold out. My interests were solely for the purpose of getting this break sold out so the break would happen. The price drop structure was an idea that didn't work out to well. We sold out most of the slots either in the final price drop or beyond the final drop. I was strongly considering cancelling the break entirely after the $28 bottom on Group 2 didn't sell out. I'm glad that the additional drop resulted in the final slots selling in that group. But at the same time, that final drop made me think that the final group wouldn't sell at $15. After all, it was only $10 less than group 2.

I will be going with the 3 group structure again, but will set it up with set prices that reflect the cost of having the break.

moved you active. You need to "report" the thread before collecting payments. This is clearly spelled out in the rules. Notifying a mod is not considering reporting as all mods need to know as does admin which is why we require the reporting.

Sorry about the confusion. Honestly. I never saw the rules page because I'm usually looking at only the testing waters page. I avoid clicking the "Group Breaks" link because the "testing waters" link is right below it.

Sorry about that, won't happen again. And I'll go over the rules more carefully. Just hate getting stuck with "can't pays" because it's 4 days after they committed.

Blowout is closed for the day so I will be buying this in the AM. I'll post a scan of the receipt when I get it. Looks like I'll be ok with the costs.

If we can get payment from alsjunk I can hold the draft on ustream.

IM'd to alsjunk2002

I need payment on those two slots. You are the only one we are waiting for. Then I can proceed with the draft on ustream.

Please let me know when payment via paypal is sent.

$73.00 to jonprelude@comcast.net

If you cannot make payment, please let me know. I have others who would be interested in your two spots.

If I don't receive payment or a message of your intentions by 9:00PM EST tonight I will put your slots up for anyone who wants them.

This is the second notice of payment sent
