HEY!  it's Timmy  >xD  Now the party can start!  C'mover here Timmy, grab yourself a drink and sit with the guis.

It's not necessarily a problem Chuck desn't attract zombies, it just means he can't be used as bait.  So....when a tank attacks, he just has to run away while his buddies are gettin clobbered   Grin

Hey, question about the damaged books- instead of having them destroyed, why not try and sell them at a reduced price?

Poor Charlie is learning it early. They can smell the zombie in him. Berserkers and maybe Mercies are the only ones who might willfully attack him. Now he just looks like an outsider more...

Hey, question about the damaged books- instead of having them destroyed, why not try and sell them at a reduced price?

Well, the simplest answers are thus:

A) There were over two thousand of the damaged books.

B) Trust me, you wouldn't want them.

Basically, over two thirds of the order had to be destroyed. It might have been possible to sell off some of the books at a reduced rate, but I don't think it's likely that we could have sold *more* damaged books than good ones. Plus, the damage, for the most part, was pretty bad. We could maybe have cherry-picked out some of the less awful ones to sell in a damage sale, but it's hard to make a solid scale of 'this is awful but not too awful to sell' and then have to go through over two thousand books and apply that judgement evenly.

As it stands, we're simply not going to pay for the damaged books (other than the cost of labor, storage, and destruction, that is). In order to do a damage sale, we would have to grade the books as acceptable, from the printer, and then pay them full price. So it'd lose us money to handle it that way, and delay future products as well. We're trying to keep our losses to a minimum, there, and save money so that we can spend it with a different printer, later, to hopefully avoid the problem in the future.


(And yes, the books should be getting pulped for recycling, if you wondered).

Boo, they should be shot out of cannons at things.

Ah, I see. Hadn't realised it was quite that bad. Fair enough mate.

Nah, it's cool.

A lot of folks do the scratch and ding thing, so it was a reasonable suggestion. It's just the sheer volume that made it impractical. That, and the fact that a lot of the books look like someone used them to mop up jizz.

wow, that's quite a vivid description there Greg.

And yes, damaged books must be destroyed for the good of all books, it's cruel but there is no other way.

Yeah, suffice to say that wasn't something that really made us happy, when we started pulling them out of the boxes like that.

I feel like that situation would produce at least an hour of quality rage fueled hilarity.

Lol, I don't think Charlie likes being ignored. If I were him, I'd probably be relieved Timmy's not coming after me and let Sammie and Jenny take care of him.

I am reminded of some wise words spoken to me by Ensouls once upon a time:
