so i can come up with a crappy product and buy silence by becoming a sponsor, and continue to sell bad products to hobbyists in a place that is supposed to be FOR hobbyists, not business....

doesnt make sense.

I got a shipment in from them just few weeks ago.

It did take longer than usual for them to ship out (last year when I'd order, they'd have the order in the mail within a few days, this time it was almost 2 weeks).

I'd emailed about my order through their website and they did reply by the next business day, though.

If you sent your email through your personal email, I'd go back and try through the website, in case personal email gets caught as spam?

You might also check on AquaBid's forum to see if there's any update- I know they do a lot of business there.

If I had to guess, I'd guess that they're probably not keeping stuff in stock right now, and have to wait for orders to arrive from FAN before shipping out? That's just guesswork, though.

If the TPT staff become aware of chronic issues with a site sponsor, they'll boot the sponsor. It's happened several times.

Thanks, Laura. Couldn't say it better myself.

Nonconductive, we do monitor the sponsors/members. Just because someone becomes a member or a sponsor of the site doesn't mean they are above any moderation. If you have an issue with a transaction gone bad, it never hurts to pm a moderator or Kyle. While we do not step in every time, if there is a trend, we do take action. And like Laura said, there are consequences.

And this is why I started monitoring this thread, OP. Even though it started out innocently enough, the comments are now coming down to a review on the store. So as a result, this topic is now closed.
