@gmarra36 Very Mediocre Person. It’s the old membership program which is no longer accepting new members (sorry). You pay $5, get free shipping, discounts on MorningSave (and possibly the other sites?), access to VMP only items during meh-rathons and sometimes other fun stuff.
@billlbo I’m glad you were released in time to WIN an IRK. They kept flashing me F’n grids of little boxes to check off. Couldn’t they hear me shouting while poking 'puter screen, I AM NOT A ROBOT! Yep, will try again cause this is fun, releases feel-good chemicals in zee brain. Your IRK will contain Amazing crap! Stuff you’re happy to have, that you’d never buy! Kindest regards,
@lwmctz VMP and the monthly membership are different. VMP was what it used to be. Then they ended it. You had to be grandfathered in, let it drop you can’t get it back. Membership is what they replaced it with.
@Mitymouse1371 Last Meh-athon I couldn’t buy one either. I thought I had been a VMP because I joined back when it all began. But when I was in the hospital during the summer of 2017 my credit card was compromised and after I got out it took a week or so to catch up on my various online accounts. That little blip blew me out of VMP status. I’m now back to the original VMP plan but not good enough for the VMP IRK. Hubby got 1 last time. So the moral of my story is: He got IRK and I got pissed.
It finally loaded, I got through the robot test, but then the loading bar just kept filling up over and over, it finally gave me an error saying too many people were trying to access right now and to try again soon, and then said sold out
@mypiesarepiff And these are the things that make no sense. No server issues here, other than initial slow load time and whatever other slowness, was able to click through to order and did the captcha right really quickly, but no luck.
@brakeforbeer I haven’t had that here with Safari but I have had that on a few other sites using safari. I switched to firefox for today as earlier people said it was loading with less issues back when the gif was still running on the home page.
Got one even though had to click on the “Buy” button 5 times and then it was slow going to the next screen and even though I had to click on all the traffic lights in the Capcha to prove I wasn’t a robot and it must have reloaded at least 4 times-thought I was dead in the water.
Wonders will never cease.
I had one in my cart, VMP since 2018, and it said I couldn’t have it because I’m not vmp. then I hit the try again button and it was sold out, so it’s not like I’m not connecting. the daily deals have been crap lately, and now this? what’s the fucking point?
@laurynwins You are a ‘Member’ - denoted by the ‘Heart’ shield next to your name in the comments. A true VMP has a ‘V’ shield. The VMP program was discontinued a couple of years ago, with existing VMP’s grandfathered in. We few remaining VMP’s are the ones stupid enough to have never let our VMP membership lapse.
@Kidsandliz@rpg714 Probably around a thousand or two, but the one thing that’s really good about “retirement” is that as time goes on, there are fewer and fewer people competing for the primo duck-watching window spots at the senior center, so just keep paying those dues to stave off the VMP reaper as long as you can.
They really need to distinguish between VMP and regular memberships more clearly, because every time this happens, we have a bunch of plebs coming in here and wondering why they didn’t score one even though they’re members, lol.
I would be willing to buy the bag. Maybe as an “option” with another item that I want. Increases item price by 2(?) dollars. The bag could be “clipped” like an old vinyl record cover so I can’t fake out people that I am a meh-VMP. Instead of a clip, maybe an “Irk” shaped hole punch.
@therealjrn And lo the meh-bots showed mercy upon a non-VMP as myself. I just got an IRK! Sooooo, no need to send your precioussss bag to me. Cherish it with very light and round-edged items so that it may not come to harm.
@dagirlgenius It is by intent, to make a lot of people compete for a very limited number of products. Without the captcha, clever assholes like myself could set up scripts to automate the purchasing process to guarantee a purchase ASAP, giving others no chance at all.
@mediocrebot Bullshit. You installed captcha because you’re addicted to automation. I mean look at you, you’re doing lines of AutoHotkey code right now as you’re talking to us, and you’re not even noticing it!
I think you have a problem, mediocrebot. Maybe it’s time we all got together and had a nice talk about it? We all love you, and we want you to get the help you need.
@tim878 That probably has to do with the captcha service itself. I’ve had that happen to me occasionally when I download copious amounts of hardcore, amateur pornography - 95% of the time the captcha functions normally, but sometimes I click the check box and it verifies without the usual puzzle.
No, I’m not addicted to porn, and am a perfectly normal, functional human being and meh.com shopper.
