    They never had an account-based system before, did they? I don't recall that. Which brings me to my next question: How do I create an account?

    Once you make a purchase, you have an account to log into, it will create a randomly generated password that you can log in with and then change.

    Hah... we've received a lot of similar emails, but it's because everyone was used to our old site. Once you try the new, you'll definitely prefer it as it allows you to manage and bring up any of your order history, shipping info, etc. and shortly you'll be able to do a lot more. So just give it a try, you won't regret it!

    As the man behind the company is on the boards ...

    Are orders placed via e-mail (with the old site) still valid, or is it like BBTS' upgrade when orders had to be resubmitted?

    Would items ordered from the old site be able to be grouped alongside items ordered from the new site, to save on shipping costs?

    Yup, & to have them in a giftset limited to 500 makes these even cooler! :thumb 

    A pity these were not done in original colors.

    Now what are my chances of getting 1 set without taking a pounding? Mm.. :sly2:

    Love the new sits and the new look.
    I love the new features (Bill Now/Bill Later, Ship together-separately)
    Still not a fan of their preorder cancelation policy. Thats usually a deal breaker for me.

    Also, is this giftset a TFSource exclusive?

    Old orders are valid, especially considering they are paid for :p 

    For the most part the preorders taken in the old system will ship in Sept/early Oct so we hope to be using the new system almost exclusively by sometime in October.

    If you want to add to your old preorder, we'll likely have you order everything in the new system and then cancel your old preorder.

    Let me know if you have more questions!
