Well the webpage is having problems for sure. Got a first: We are busy processing orders. Try again later. Then even though the no robot box was checked told me I couldn’t by because i was a robot. Then got the robot thing expired. Checked again, then was told I can’t buy if I was a robot. Checked box again and then finally told me it was sold out. Please fix whatever the problem is!
@OnionSoup That can happen for a couple reasons. One, you clicked the green button before the checkmark animation was complete. Two, it could have timed out and you tried again by clicking the green button without refreshing the page and clicking the “I’m not a robot” checkbox all over again.
@OnionSoup@sammydog01 I had the out of order loading last time but not this time. When that happened I had to click not a robot twice (eg the second time after it loaded). This time one of the times I did time out but I didn’t need to refresh as the robot button was unclicked with a message it had expired. Then I clicked again and clicked buy and got the repeatedly loading green bar. The entire page is loading far more slowly than it has for a long time in the past with irks. I am thinking they have some sort of problem on their end.
@Kidsandliz@OnionSoup I would guess the problem is that they’re offering half the usual number of Irks per sale and there is probably more traffic than usual because it’s their birthday. Unless you’re a fan of the Vestibule of Patience over at Woot this is probably just the way it goes.
Huh I’ve missed a lot of IRKS but never had the site just totally hang like that and even got the “servers busy keep trying later” message upon trying to buy it. Site must be getting hammered way more than usual!
Tried on the computer, green bar just kept scrolling, but yet the signing up for a member apparently processed, so used my phone and IRK went through almost instantly, then I got the “these are selling fast” message on the computer.
What the Fuck meh? This is bullshit, 3 times already, I made sure I was ready, waited till the last second, refreshed the page and all of a sudden the site can’t be reached, then another time I actually clicked on time but the buy it bar kept filling up about 10 times to tell me at the end that it was sold out, and the first one the fucking I’m not a robot shit took so long to figure it out that of course it was sold out by the time it did, what’s up with this shit?
Sometimes it was 200 IRKs per time. Last time is was down to 100. Now on this crap-a-thon it is down to 50 a shot. Is meh spreading its crap too thin? BTW-green bar did its thing 3 times before it said I got one so you never know. Always like to go backwards to the meh page to see how many clicked on the deal before me. Mine said 51 so depends on who got to the buy button faster was certainly near enough to the 50 available for sale to snag one.
Even not on the irks the page is taking gazillion seconds to load and then once it is loaded and we can all see it is a t-shirt the click face meh button spins forever. Must be a server or other ‘their end’ kind of problem. Hope they fix it before the day is out.
I got one, I got one, I got one! And then the stomach-clenching feeling when I hear a “tinkle” of broken porcelain as I pick the box up off my porch.
Laughing Squid Tshirt - I’ve always wanted one of these!
Rocket RC Levicopter - like sporach said, wrapped like an xmas gift.
Asobu Porcelain Jewell Mug - handle broken off into several pieces. I don’t want to complain, but damn, that was a cool looking mug
Palm Coolers Tie-Down kit - which I can use for… …something!
