4-5 weeks is unacceptable in my opinion. No deal should take longer than 2-3 wks max.

Depends on the obscurity of the country you're dealing with. I've had registered packages to and from places like Malaysia and South Africa take over a month. Registered shipping takes much longer than untracked airmail.

The member in question lives in the United States. There's no real excuse. Especially when he's dealing with a member who lives in Paris or any other metropolitan area. It's just laziness.

I'm still here. I have had a lot of other things going on, and only check the forums 3 or 4 times of week, instead of almost hourly.

My general slowless is the result, mainly, of disorganization.

Alexis: I did get your message, and I am fiar certain I responded to it. I will pay you either Friday or Saturday.

Valter: I sent the lands twice. The first time, I sent it unregistered, and it never got there or came back. I sent another lot of lands 5 or 6 weeks ago, registered. I am sorry to hear it never got there. I am now completely out of lands. Do you need anything else? If so, let me know, and I will ship it first thing Monday, express mail. Also, when I first saw this thread, I joined the IRC channel and asked Richard to tell you I wanted to get in touch with you as soon as possible.

psrex: we traded PMs back and forth for several weeks during the time of the Crystalline sliver trade, and I am fairly certain I offered you a refund at one point. The offer of the refund still stands - just tell me your paypal email. I did not obtain the third sliver until late March, our trade having been in early January.

All other members: I have traded with many of you. Yes, it often takes me a week or two to get off my butt and ship things. But, bottom line, I always do, if not promptly. I apologize for my general slowness.

Yes. Canada is slower than you'd expect. They also like to leave packages out in the rain :roll:

Celebrindor still owes me a dci soltari that he has owed me for almost a year. If he does not have it any more I would gladly accept a substitution, but this is rediculous.


And as for my left over trades, Gregtok please give me a link again so I can see what lands you still need. Thanks
