Because there have been instances where I wanted to order something that'd be from the UK and the shipping alone was the same price if not more than the item I was looking at buying.

ask Gagsy. she's bought practically everything from the store. but yeah when she was wanting to get a mystery box she said she couldn't because of shipping.

That should come with subscription status imo. And as for price slashing the prices should keep lowering day by day till said close date so even poor us users can afford the items.

nope one time EXP Boost, increase your exp by say 5,000 exp (50 cents to the 10 EXP) with a limit of two packs per user. as for the prices on more slash so they actually make a profit and users can afford it.

Last I bought something from the NG Store was mid-last year, with store credit. If I remember correctly, shipping was $12.50 US. It's around that mark, somewhere.

Bear in mind though, that's the lowest-priced shipping option. As far as I remember, there were higher prices, the highest going to about $33 for next day delivery or something of the sort.

I last settled for the 2-3 week option when I got my Bitey tee, and it arrived in roughly two and a half weeks. I wasn't willing to expend more store credit than I felt necessary for me to get a Supporter upgrade in addition to what I was buying.

It's hard to think about that while you're watching your revenue fall while struggling to maintain it's levels.
This IS a big part of why I hesitate so much with the Pico Day parties, but we were at an extreme low point last year and went for it anyway and it ended up being a great time. My professional failings can't be an excuse for not getting everyone together.

Dude. Don't look at it as personal failings. You're a great guy with a solid head on your shoulders. I'm not basing this on kiss ass, but rather my personal experience in your company. No one can predict if an online code based product (flash) is going to fail or succeed. Just because it's been obsoleted by ever advancing products and technology doesn't mean that you failed somehow with this site and community. Moore's law and Kryder's law move so fast that no one can actually keep up. Those that can, live in a static clean jar and have no lives. Back in 2000 you were a god if you had a hard drive larger than 30 gigs. These days that's fucking peanuts. Ever watch shark tank? Inventors are often not good enterpreneurs. And that's not their fault, it's just how they are wired. Consider what you have accomplished so far. You started an online community and company from the ground up out of your basement practically. That's some Bill gates and Steve Wozniak shit right there. That right there is an achievement in and of itself. I don't know you very well personally other than through the informal pleasantries we've exchanged, but I believe the difference between you and say...Carnegie, is that you didn't sell your self short. Look at that faggot who sold his minecraft forum...citricsquid I think his name is? Totally fucked himself over. Shit blew up over night. You decided to stick with it regardless of the risk. That takes a lot of balls. And although I personally wished for something different than the path you took, I'm just an end user. This site is your life. You have poured countless hours, sweat, and tears into it. Who are we to really tell you what do to with something that you immaculately concepted and raised from the ground up? You've accomplished more in your short 30 something years than most of us accomplish in a life time. And who's to say you won't move on to bigger and better things?

Everyone here needs to acknowledge that Tom Fulp has bigger balls than Andrew Carnegie did. Citricsquid has little mincey faggot balls. Tom Fulp has great big brave balls.
