    Im not liking the new site for one reason. When I go to "My Account" my Kindle Fire is flagging it as not secure and Im getting a log in screen with HTTPS crossed out. Not sure I want to keep using this new site when my Fire is telling me not even the log in is secure. The older site had no flags at all.

    You also don't get you full history (orders, payments, credit, cancellations) anymore :(

    Mixed feelings.

    -I like the "modern" look, I suppose. Better than some other site designs.
    -$4 flat rate is welcome indeed.
    -the ability to customize a POL and ship a la carte is awesome.

    And the negatives:

    -don't see as many items on the front page.
    -really miss the side bar of properties/categories that made getting to what I want very easy.
    -the selection of scattered and random front pager items is weird. Only a small handful of people are gonna give a shit about new Bucky O'Hare toys.

    I'll get used to it, I guess.

    Does anyone know what the flat rate shipping speed is? I always used FedEx and with very few exceptions my loot got to me within 3 days of shipping.

    Same here and it's so annoying. I'm usually on the site more with my kindle.

    To me it looks like their FB page, and a Windows 10 screen. It's like they had to outdo TF Source or something.

    Also I am one of those people who give a shit about Bucky O'Hare, LoL.

    It's says 3-8 days and that they use different carriers for flat rate. You'll be notified of which before you ship.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but the preorders page needs to be sorted by release date, not order placed date. I emailed them to make this request. I liked being able to look at the old page and see what was coming out soon, so I could make sure my finances were in order.

    Same. I tend to have 15 preorders open on average at a time so this kind of thing is helpful for planning ahead.

    They should also allow you to choose how many to view on one page. I like to view all of them at once in order of release date. Hopefully they fix that. It's the only way to organize it to make any sense.

    Same here. I've got 61 preorders, and the last two on the list are released this month. The old PO page was quick and efficient.

    So the MP12+ that I cancelled (because I bought one from HLJ and one from AE), is now back in my preorders, and I can't cancel it. Thank Primus I have nothing else preordered for November, since it looks like I will now be paying for a third MP12+ o_O :eek:

    Don't like the redesign at all. There's still a few bugs they'll have to work out, but I greatly, greatly preferred being able to just see more stuff on the page.

    I think most of us actually liked the weird "this was cool...in the '90s" web design. I knew how to navigate it without any problems and get to what I wanted. This new design is...I don't know yet.

    Just ordered something to see how it worked. Gave me 89 days before shipping (added it to my POL). It did give me the option to "ship now" which was nice.

    Cool, not big on Fed-Ex, I generally stick to UPS. One of the least offensive types of Brownshirts.

    Mixed to outrage from the redesign is nice, but I like the old one better and now they took away the 10 day holding for money orders/personal checks as well as that option as well. (F#@K!!!) After all those years paying with that method and now they pulled this shit. I don't know what to think, I kind of feel betrayed. Still I might have to adapt to it one way or the other.

    I typically stick to UPS as well. I probably pay more just to stay with them.
