When ShopTemp was first created, it brought that referral program. I thought that was a great program. You refer someone, you bring cash into ShopTemp and to help support GBAtemp, and you get a little reward for it. Sure a couple of cents might not seem like much, but when you build it up, it was great. And now we have ShopTemp.net. I'll admit, it's a great idea. Help keep the bad retailers away and bring up the good ones. It can also be treated just like Ebay I suppose if you're selling your items. I think it's a great idea, but it just doesn't appeal to me. Back when the site was first closed in early December, we were told to get our orders in if we have credit, and they'll ship them out. Seems fair right? After all, you're not exactly paying for it if you're using your credit. So I did that. I put my order in with my $63.00 in store credit. In fact, I think I brought the total up to $61,00 in credit, can't be sure, but I used the majority of my credit. I placed my order before the notice of "we can no longer accept orders" was posted. I never got the items so I contacted, waited a while, and finally got a reply. They told me they can't ship those items, so they would give me a refund. I thought, "Well, okay, needed a MicroSD for my other flashcard but I suppose I can wait until the shop opens up again." After all, I had $63.00 in credit that I could get something pretty that would be useful to me. I was looking forward to the re-opening. A little bummed that the MP3 player that I ordered for my mom and the headphones/microSD couldn't get shipped out for Xmas, but whatever, I'd make it up to her somehow. Then ShopTemp.net comes up. Okay cool, maybe there's something I can spend that hard earned credit on that I've been saving up since October. Afterall, I managed to bring in about $1400.00 in sales, so I thought I would treat myself to something. Then I find out what it is, and that our credit has been wiped clean. That sucks a lot. And while anybody who's reading this will go "oh god, really? Another fag who thinks he deserves something?" Okay, while I would agree with you, you can't deny the fact that I helped out a lot by bringing in high sales, whether it was annoying for people who hated referrals or not. I'm just a little bummed that, after racking up that high of credit, it was completely wiped clean, and now the site doesn't even appeal to me at all now. Sure it's a nice little idea to help differentiate what seller is good and what is bad, but when you already know the littlest amount, it's useless. I already know of a bunch of good resellers that I can order from, that's why I'm saying ShopTemp is now useless to me. Anyways, nice idea for the new opening (even though it's a totally different site and not really a shop anymore), just disappointed that I, along with many others who had gotten high enough credit to get something, got left high and dry. Not really any thanks either for those of us who helped out a lot.
