I have been sick the entire three-day weekend and I wasn’t able to keep up with the Meh-rathon today since I was still recovering, but I managed to snag this last-chance IRK, which is easily the highlight of my crap-tastic weekend.
Was all prepped, logged out and back into account just prior, ready to go! Order page lagged all to hell, the “I’m not a robot” refused to click and after it did it kept removing itself after a long pause, telling me I hadn’t checked the damn thing.
Leaped onto my desktop, can’t remember changed password!! F@#$! Back to phone, zero hope left it’s gonna happen, because, it’s been like almost 2 minutes now…but, refresh, check stupid robot box and try one last time…and, holy SchNikes, VICTORY!!!
@PHRoG I’m salty about this You had to time to enter your password, wrong, and still get it. I was logged in and trying my darndest the moment it rolled over and the site was giving me the middle finger in several different fashions.
@PHRoG If there were a Texas sized conspiracy it might almost be worth it… just frustrated that this is like two (maybe even three??) mehrathons in a row where I’ve failed to obtain a box of useless junk. Mostly annoyed with myself for even caring about it, since I know full well the contents will all just end up in my box o’ random stuff that I use for white elephants / filler when I mail people things.
Can’t believe I got one - when I first clicked on the button nothing happened. So I clicked again and again and again etc. Finally it worked and I actually was successful in getting one. I guess the majority of the people must have given up and gone to bed not expecting another one to come on. Only way I can think of getting one after being so late in getting through.
Large Solo cup box arrived! (Classy!) Contained 1x printer USB cord 1x windshield car phone mount and 1x Nespresso verisma coffee maker, recertified and recently used, hopefully it works! And 1x Irk bag.
Weird. It would never go through. Just always the bar endlessly loading and then eventually timing out “there must have been a problem.” Over and over until it sold out. I’ve never had a problem with servers or whatever on Meh. I’m on fiber. Captcha wasn’t an issue. Would just never go through.
Forgot to click the shipping option on the previous one, which was enough delay to sell out. But made it on this one - even though the multiple green moving bar made me doubt it would work. Now, if it only came with some of the items displayed in the photo of the bag!
I got the error twice, was able to open a second tab and click to buy but it errors out again… TWICE!
Man it’s frustrating to wait all day, refreshing and hoping to get one. Finally able to get it in the bag and click the necessary items like captcha and get the errors until sold out.
@support I understand those issues, but it doesn’t make me feel better. There are ways to handle extra loads during times like that. And if that’s not possible limiting the time before someone who did get one can get another at least helps spread it out better.
@rapture7@support People can’t get two. Meh won’t let them - they cancel them. However someone posted a screen where it told someone (who hadn’t gotten one though) that they can’t buy a second so maybe that is actually working for those who already had one too.
