I can't wait for the calendars to be ready.  I know what I'm getting everyone for Christmas.  :cheeky:

What happened to the concerns about Cafepress quality and copyright issues? I thought that the RFC Forum store there was closing.

I think an exception was made because the alternatives were all hella expensive.

That, and after Cafepress saw how much business they'd lose by changing their rules the way they did, the changed a lot of it back...

Will there be an Aussie outlet, for those of us who do not have American dollars?

Hope so!!!!

You can still get it if your aussie, I will certainly be getting one.
Open a paypal account and pay that way. That is how I pay anyone that is O/S.
Paypal is free to open and I only get charged $1 for using it per transaction.

I was going to close the CafePress store because of changes they had made to their terms of service and payment structure, but apparently, a LOT of other people were even MORE upset than I was, and they made some major changes to appease us. :)

As a result, I decided to keep the CafePress store open. As was also mentioned, they offer a few items that Zazzle does not (mugs, mousepads, baby items, stickers). So, for now, BOTH stores are open. :)

I am a newbie to this forum, as this is my fifth post.  :shocked2:I would like to let everyone know that had THIS been the FIRST thread I had read I never would have stayed/joined/learned.  :confused:

All this bickering among you is inexcusable and it is a put off to the new people you wish to impress your views upon. This calendar thread is your for-runner and ALL of you should be on your best behavior thus setting the mood for your entire board.

If anyone had a problem with the calendar Suebee has worked so hard on, DON'T buy one... Just about everyone here owns a computer so if you want different PICS on YOUR calendar MAKE YOUR OWN just QUIT bickering about someone else's hard work!  

My ratties sit in full view of my monitor and I feel guilty to have exposed them to all this bickering! :sad2:

This thread has been quite civil. I'm certainly not ashamed of anything I've said here.

Um... ok.

The only "issue" in this thread was resolved last week. There's been no other bickering that I'm aware of... and it's my job to be aware. ;)

Ok I didn't research the authors of the posts in question and it appears the skuttelbut was all caused by a "guest".

BTW my 4 rats (proofreaders) missed that too...

Well, they weren't a guest when they posted them, but yes. ;D

(when someone's account is deleted, either by the staff or by the member, they become a guest, and can't post anymore)

Yeah, um, gimme time! LOL!

When I narrowed everything down, I removed from my brain whose pics were whose... now I have to go through every single folder (one for each contributor) and match up. It could take me a couple hours.

I will try to do it Monday.

Stupid question, not that it really matters now, but I thought the cover poll was going to consist of all the 3rd place photos from each month?

Since Niveus is going to be on the cover, that means Ace will be on either March or April instead?

1. No. I never said that in the breakdown of voting. The cover should be a shining star, not a runner up. The way it went was the way I described it from the very beginning.

2. Yes. April, because Easter is on April 11. ;D

Ok then, I was just confused by the whole thing with alternates.   Do you know abouts when they will be available for purchase yet, or no?

I *hope* to have it up on Halloween. ;D

I have most of the photos that won already sized... I have to do Ace, and LSR is going to send me a better version of the cover so I have more pic to work with. Then, I have to add any text. :)
