It’s been a couple years since we started up the Meh daily teaser email and circuit breaker launch times, and we’re ready to make a couple little tweaks later this week:
We’ve always thought of Meh as an event-based site, and specifically the launches as a social event, so it makes sense to have them when most of America is up. It’s more fun when everyone can be up and about for the release, and we think this new time should work better across the time zones.
If you’re time zone challenged, this means the second launch and email will be at:
Oh. Did we mention that we now sell and ship (most things) to Alaska and Hawaii now? Anyway, as before, if we’re not selling out of the product, then we just continue selling through the day, so in those cases, this shift won’t change anything but the email send time. And there’s no shift to the midnight eastern or any other mysterious launch times we won’t be talking about.
I think that’s it. If nothing else, I think I’ve accomplished my primary goal of making this announcement a lot shorter than @snapster’s original..
