Release Update: Faile Book Covers - Sold Out

October 29th, 2013 Posted by: Paper Monster

** Thanks for the inquires. The Book Covers have sold out. Seems the site worked great for some people while others had issues with seeing the work. The only answer we understand seems technical, with the timing of the new and improved servers being updated and the rate at which ISPs perform new DNS look-ups for the site. While the servers seemed to handle the traffic, the work done to the site and the change over seemed to cause the effect of some not seeing the updated site for a delayed period. It's a frustration for us as we've tried hard to make sure the site wouldn't crash, in addition to avoiding any oversales. This new issue has been corrected for future releases and we do sincerely apologize for those that it effected. We thank everyone as always for being understanding and for the support of those that had a smooth and not so smooth experience. **

Paper Monster is very excited to announce the release of new original works by Faile. To be released Wednesday October 30th, Around 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time.

You guys screwed up this Faile release. I couldn't even see it go up on your web site and I have T3 internet so it's not my connection. I kept refreshing and nothing new shows up. Other people are experiencing the same thing. You're pros, get you act together.

Once again, Paper Monster f*cks up a Faile release. Every single time you guys find a way to screw the pooch in a major way. I can't believe the typical "it was an accident" or "unplanned" b.s.. This has to be the plan, so it drives the hype machine. But, at what point is the hype not worth the complete loss of trust and confidence of your customers. I actually came back, gave Paper Monster and Faile another chance, even after I have experienced screwup after screwup, disappointment after disappointment. But, forget it, I'm finished with both of them. Every single time it's the same story. Either they sell you a piece, and then take it away from you because they "oversold the item". Or, you cart an item, go to the payment screen, fill in your billing and shipping info, etc...only to have the screen crash/freeze, then get met with a message popping up saying 'no longer available'. Or, you just can't access the page. You log on an hour before the scheduled release, wait patiently, have the screen set up (and working perfectly), click refresh a zillion times...have everything as perfect as can be. And then, like f*cking magic, the second of the scheduled release, the site suddenly and magically goes down and crashes, or it freezes up. Usually (LIKE TODAY FOR CHRIST'S SAKE), the crash/freeze/delay/etc....lasts only a few minutes. But, not surprisingly, those few minutes are exactly the amount of time it takes for everything to magically disappear/sellout. How's that for timing. The sale page worked perfect for the hour before and the hour after the sale/release. But, those critical 3 minutes, and the site magically is unavailable. Paper Monster seems to have this happen every single time. Is all this a directive from Faile? Why does Faile continue to do business with people like Paper Monster, if they're obviously completely incompetent? Who knows, who really knows.


I'm done with Paper Monster and any of their future Faile releases. Are you guys are horrible or just have a horrible IT/Web department? I'm not that mad that I missed the release, more mad that I didn't even get a chance, the page never updated. Also I'm now $1250 richer thanks to your screw up. I could probably pick this up on the secondary market for the same price if not lower. Faile pieces doesn't hold up it's value.


Scored one on the drop!
