Uncle E. is a great guy, but these server issues have been happening over and over again over the years. Not sure if it’s true here, but I have noticed over the years that businesses that have these problems, frequently have an immune from termination Incompetent employee (relative or good friend) in charge of the problem issue.

They really should do something. It happens every year at the worst possible times. When is the last time they were able to take part in November sales? Something's gotta give. People are really getting fed up of them being constantly down.

Seeing Batwaffel and King Lars in the same room at the same time? No deal is safe!

This is what I have been thinking, and saying on the forum here. It's back, but it still shows only my items purchased in 2018. Nothing before or since. And I have bought from them recently.

This is what I get (and been getting for what, two months now?) when I log in and click on order history.

It's is working at the moment but my order history only goes back to November 2018, same as @Grem

I also keep everything but it is also handy to be able to find a full purchase history in your account.

@Grem same for me. Support says they can find what you need from email. I’ve got the original emails too.

Yes I keep all my stuff too.

I was just showing what I (and others) have been seeing for a while now with the site, despite being told it was being fixed. If you have someone competent on the job, it would have been fixed by now.

I emailed support a long while ago about missing history and never heard back.   Now that they're back, clicking "Blowouts", blows up...

I once met one of the writers of that show and he said when they were spit balling ideas for a new show they were high and thought they should create a euphemism for a brothel (that would get past the censors). Apparently they succeeded.

Uncle Joe is piano player/bouncer, the three girls initials are all "B.J." (Bobby Jo, Billie Jo and Betty Jo) and the aunt (Kate) is the madam.

A lot of times when they build these store sites, they buy a certain level (simple store) and then they outgrow the original setup.  Only it means starting all over with a new setup if you want to do it right. Unfortunately, most of these guys don't have time, money, or knowledge to upgrade to a bigger setup, so they muddle along until it finally gives out. 

It happens a lot in retail as well.  There's a point you go from small to midsize to large.  If you don't do it right, it all collapses on you and you go out of business. There's a lot of competition out there and every year there's more. 

That said, JRRShop and Eric have always been great to work with for me. I will continue to buy from them.  Though probably not until Black Friday.  I have a couple things on my list that they don't sell and I should quit buying and start saving for the BF/Xmas sales.  😉

Agree with that reason Lizzi, seems more probable than my reason!!

 I more than likely will too. But I got to admit, I am hesitant. BTW, last BF they were down most of, if not all of, BF/CM. IIRC the year before that they had troubles, if not down too for that sale.

I'm waiting until BF only because I'm trying not to buy until then.  Of course, if something really great comes up for sale before then.....

 

I keep saying "No More!!!!"  Then a great deal comes along and I grab it!  The GAS gets me again.  😄

I'm saving up for Luftrum's Charity Auction (in October). Great fun every year. Some bargains, and always for a good cause.

Here was last years: https://go.rallyup.com/charity2019 (used to be on KVR, but was a lot of manual work for those in charge)
