Anybody know where they have what the actual variant covers look like? Was curious what the variant cover for the Flash was.

Those people are wrong. He said he was scared doing Batman #1 and it showed in his art but by #3 and #4 he was firing on all cylinders.

@hayfro: That is the variant cover for Flash this week done by Capullo. I happened to see it at my LCBS.

So how did we decide we’re going to do the variant page going forward. Wait until thursday to avoid the F5 key mash – crash site problem?

Yes – there will be no F5ing on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, sorry. At least for now – several months from now we might migrate to a sturdier server / hosting service.

DAN WILL orders generate on friday instead of wednesday..to take in incentive covers……

Pat, good question, I’m not sure of the answer. It may be that incentive purchases will ship the following week. I’ll ask Travis tomorrow morning.

Generating orders on Friday would mean stuff wouldn’t get shipped until the following Monday, no? In any case, I certainly wouldn’t be getting shipments on Friday anymore.

My guess is that we would still process orders on Tuesdays and the incentives would wrap to the following next week shipments.

Wait, What! I haven’t been around for a few days and everything looks different (not that it’s a bad thing) and am I reading this right that variants are no longer going to drop on Tuesday? What did I miss on this?

The effect of all the F5ing on the server is making receiving and processing shipments too difficult, so we’re going to drop variants on Thursdays, after that stuff is done. This means they won’t go into this week’s shipments.

Travis replaced the old stand-alone forum with a new version of it that plugs into the site software, so it runs better and is easier for him to manage… it just looks slightly different.

Okay, Thanks Dan. I like the new look.

Thursday variants is pretty smart since it will help prevent crashing __ I’m too slow( aka sleeping) to ever check the variants in time lol

Are shipping orders processing correctly this week? or is a bug still skrewing with some of them?

Yeah, I was just wondering about that too. When are shipments being generated? Also, could one of the Admins verify whether Uncanny X-Men #1 Cover #4 is the blank one? Thanks.

Last week Cover 4 of wolverine and X-men was the blank one, so I believe C-4 of UXM is the blank as well. I like the blank covers. You can get the artist to sketch your very own original cover.

@Anzuelo and @Tess – re shipments, see my shipping newsflash thread – http://heavyink.com/forums/1/topics/2653

I’ll have to check on the C4 UXM thing later (note that that sort of question for admins is best put in the new support thread – http://heavyink.com/forums/1/topics/2636 … I’m trying to get everyone to start using it ;)

@Tess – cover 4 is the blank one. And, good news, we can order all we want of the blank cover variant, no restrictions! ;)
