    Hello!

    This morning we are converting to a new server. Please don't post in the
    forum until after noon eastern time as they are finishing the data comparison
    for all changed files from this morning.

    After luch today, please let us know if you see any broken links that didn't
    convert properly. You may have to wait for your ISP's DNS server to update to
    get back to the site so if you can't get to any mastercollector.com site, just
    give it a little more time to update.

    This update will allow us to make some changes in the store that will streamline
    the operations and make it faster.

    Thanks for your help and support,

    Brian

    How about making it more secure rather than "faster"?

    How about putting stuff in the store that would make the membership actually worthwhile?

    I was thinking about joining up here pretty soon. If I pay my $40 now, will that only take me until the end of this year like some clubs, or will my membership last until next September?

    As already suggested, I think people would be happier with a store that couldn't pass on their personal details to other customers.

    Well, since they're moving the store to a new server and changing it, that likely comes with the territory...

    Not sure what the heck you buy, then... they've had stuff before/soon after it came out quite a few times by now... heck, I've had Cryo-Scourge from them for going on 3 weeks now, and the toy still isn't out in stores yet. I also never would've found 2 or 3 Alts for retail if it wasn't for them.

    Nope, your membership will last for exactly one year, regardless of when you join up. However, your membership won't land you Landquake (though you can buy it form the Store for $20 after you register), it'll sign you up for next years' free exclusive.

    There's nothing in that mail which suggests the store code is going to be audited to ensure there can't be a repeat of the serious discrepancies in session-handling reported during the NP rush. Switching servers and tweaking throughput settings isn't going to fix owt.

    Follow-up e-mail from Brian:


    We are still experiencing some difficulties with the club store caused by the
    server move. We hope to have this problem fixed shortly. Please hold off on
    any orders. If you have placed an order and encountered a problem, we will be
    contacting you about completing your order for you.
