Sorry, but I have to add my own response to the way things really are here. Me answering the emails had nothing to do with it being posted here. Let me explain a few thing. During the week I have to deal with A LOT of people that I can only deal with during business hours through the week. This is the most important thing right now. If I sat at home and answered emails and phone calls all day as they came in, not a single drum would ever be made again. I had already planned on trying to get my emails current this past weekend (which I did). I answered over 250 of them yesterday alone!!!! The Friday before last I spent all day answering emails. How many people can say they had an email answered from me yesterday or last Friday? Hundreds! I do answer what I can through the week as well. But it is far from priority through the week for the reason stated above.
Also I rarely look at the forum during the week as well. I try to scan it each day to see if there is something that needs tended too such as this issue. But I don't recommend posting this type of thing here. This wasn't an urgent matter. We are well over a month away from a shipping date for the second run. I can see if I was going to start shipping in the next day or two.
Also to explain the plan that was spoke of.... The first email I received from networkr mentioned nothing of an address change. It only said he was moving and he wanted to cancel his order. Which I did per his request and issued a refund. As I worked through the list I came to other emails from him that stated he would like to change his address or cancel his order if he couldn't. It was after a few of these that I guess that they was from networkr. The plan was I said after he was moved and with a new address to let me know and I would update his address on the order and reinstate it. If you ask me it is more of a favor rather than a plan. This favor will take even more of my time and tending to make happen. I don't mind that one bit. But others should see and know that I really don't have to pull any favors to sell these drums. But I like to try and help all I can.
As far as this little poll... I'll allow it, not that it really matters or will change anything. I only have so much time as I've stated. Some may wonder about my , "I'll allow it" statement. Thats right... this is my section, I pay $300 a month for it. I can do with it as I wish... That means if I want to make something go bye-bye I can. This is an ad for my business, not a place where anyone has a right to bitch and moan. There is the whole rest of the internet for that. Now, many of you know and all can see that I don't make stuff go bye-bye. If I did there wouldn't be any of the many, many bitch, moan, and crybaby threads that linger from the delays of the first run. I am not about editing history is why I leave it. I know that way more people know my true character and situation and that is why I allow this stuff and don't remove it. 9 out of 10 times it shows that the poster is the unreasonable person and uninformed.
As far as contacting me here... It is not the best place. My email is your best bet.
In the past there has been a few people that thought they could call me out and make me bow down to them by posting certain things in my section. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm not that guy! The very most of these people have recieved a big slap in their own face when their order was canceled and I called them out right back. Upon reading networkr's thread I didn't think, "that's it, I'm canceling his order". I tried to make that clear to him in an email also. I told him I canceled his order because he asked me to. I will admit though that I wondered if I would have to cancel his order later. I have found that more often than not an impatient person is simply that, an impatient person. You can smooth them over but usually they are up in arms again before you even turn around.
I've said this before also but maybe I should say it again. I'm a nice guy.. If I can I'll bend over backwards to help someone, but I'm not nice to the point of weakness. I don't let people walk on me. I usually don't easily forget or forgive either. Not many that enter my watch list ever leave it.
I know some will read this and think, "this guy is crazy" and thats alright. Because I know that most that read it will think right on!!!
Guess saying I was satisfied wasn't good enough...
