Po box was listed as an issue for that?

I switched away from my FlexDelivery address the instant they mentioned UPS was the carrier.

 

Biggest annoyance for me is now I'll just get a notice card instead of a package, and it'll take 2-4 weeks to get said package through USPS, instead of less than a week and it actually being delivered to my door.  I currently have three packages waiting for me at the post office because of a lazy CanadaPost driver that we've put in a lot of complaints about regarding non-delivery over the past two and a half years (probably easily over 125 by now), and CanadaPost has done ~nothing~ about it.  Those packages are waiting because with current heat wave going out after 9am is not advisable unless necessary.

Well, guess I won't be able to write up a guide using UPS, as they shipped mine USPS for some strange reason.  Guess I'll get my package in two weeks to a month instead of a few days, but it's shipped.

 

For those curious, I'm wave 9.

 

Damn, and here was me at wave 12 thinking "a wave a day puts me at nearly two weeks out"! But I suppose I do have the runes and dragonfolk, so I suspect I am much further down the list than it seems at the moment.

 

.... I wonder what happens if they run out of shippable orders?

Discord is saying they heard regular pirate ship orders are now shipping tomorrow. Here’s to another hopeful day of waiting.

 

This information regarding the regular pirate ships beginning to ship tomorrow came from Justin on the most recent fulfillment stream. It is subject to change, as is everything regarding so many logistics and moving parts, but that is the most up to date expectation.

It was said that "smaller" orders would be going USPS.  Don't know what the cut off on that is. Also PO boxes as already mentioned.

I'm going to tongue in cheek say....  Like any other shipping department, that sounds like a great time for beer and BBQ!

So, do we know if the container's waiting for a berth,  on the train yet, or sitting in Customs purgatory? I don't get the chance to watch the Q&As really

 

The official information that we have for the final container is that it is "not here", if that changes there will be much rejoicing all around!

We know it's not held up in Customs, and not much else. 

 

It will get here when it gets here, and meanwhile there's certainly plenty of other pledges to ship.

To my knowledge, cold is not a problem for them, at least not at any range a normal storage unit would be in.

In my experience, freezing them over night, then dropping them on a hard tile floor while removing them from said freezer can lead to damaging your Bones mini.  ::(:

Three guesses as to how I know that, and the first two guesses don't count.

Dang, you're so hurting for space you're storing your bones in the freezer?! Your wife is a lot more understanding than mine.

i just hope we're not looking at months delay for our stuff lol

 

yes, yes , i know everyone, we WILL get our things eventually

 

yes yes i know, tehy have plenty to ship for other people and i shouldn't feel envious and jealous that i'm being skipped

 

yes yes, theyre trying

 

yes yes be patient

 

doesn't mean i can't be disappointed and sad taht a single item on a missing container that could be days, weeks, or months away (or lost at the bottom of the sea), is holding up the rest of my goodies that i've waited so long for lol

 

allow me my disappointment 😛

I don't know where you got those UPS Canadian brokerage rates from, but here is what they put on their website, and what I usually see them charge.

Hate them so much. Rather deal with USPS any day.

They're UPS's retail rates. Reaper's rates are something that they've negotiated with UPS for these shipments.

The container is already several weeks late.  We know that customs has been waived but no additional information.  I do not have any insider info, but based on other shipping information from the company I work at, it is probably another month away.  Those containers are piled up because their is also a trucking and rail shortage.  Depending on how big the queue is, it could be a month or more before it is shipped.  

 

At this point, nothing we can do but wait.  I am guessing end of July the earliest we see that container.

My Canadian order is set to ship right away. I'm being sent my parcel via mail, not courier, so I'm not expecting it until August. Weird, since I changed my address to the office, but maybe they printed the label before I did that. My house address is rural, so couriers won't deliver.

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Hello folks! AngerSmash will be launching in Kickstarter on September 15, 2021 and you may now follow the project with this pre-launch link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uncreatedspace/angersmash-a-game-making-fun-of-your-anger 
       
      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much!

      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂 
       
      Gonna leave the Kickstarter project page link here as well as the Instagram link

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.
