I wanted to give everyone who’s donated to support the site recently – and requested a magnet/sticker – a heads-up that I have been having trouble getting Sticker Mule to make the blankety-blank things. I’ve followed the usual protocol, as I have for years, of submitting the order and approving the proof – which previously triggered production and the items on my doorstep a week or so later.
Lately, though, I am not getting a confirmation from them – to approve the proof – apparently because of Yahoo email and its diddling with its spam filter software or whatever it is that keeps me from receiving these confirmation emails.
And so I go back to Sticker Mule and try to get the order rolling some other way. So far, all I have been able to do is get a PDF “invoice” – with no means to authorize the thing.
My teeth ache a lot lately. I wish for 1985. Technology – and the “convenience” it offers – is great…when it’s actually convenient. When it works. When it doesn’t, you’re as outta luck as an Eskimo without a parka. No way to contact and deal with a human. Instead, generic “customer satisfaction” forms to fill in and which seem to be universally ignored.
At any rate, I am working the problem and wanted to let you know and to apologize to those who have been expecting stickers/magnets and haven’t received them yet.
They’re coming – even if I have to order them from some other place.
Thanks, for bearing with – and for your support. I couldn’t Undiaper (and Diaper Report) without it!
