Yeah but still, Flashcards aren't illegal in some countries. Like Canada, last I checked, they're legal. Shame ShopTemp can't be a site that ships to Canada or any other country that allows Flashcards.

Why can't they be named?

I don't wish to anger the powers that be, lol. Suffice it to say, if they can tell Paypal what to do, which is a very influential organization since more or less everyone online has to go through it at some point, I don't want to upset the people that wanted ShopTemp dead more than they already are. It isn't so much a matter of "can't" as it is "don't want to".
dont matter. I'm sure wikileaks will give us all the names in a couple of weeks.

Don't they have worldwide shipping? Being based in a country where they're considered legal is different, though I think they're probably legal in China anyway, just PayPal didn't like it.




I'm still wondering, might it be possible for the free shipping option to return so I can make an order using credit?

One door closes, another one opens.........a fact of life to start getting used to, kiddies.
Nothing to be depressed about, just move on (unless you've got outstanding orders, etc. of course).

I couldn't care less if I had no outstanding orders or cleared orders with them..

Then why post at all?

Also, can someone, preferably an admin or someone who is in contact with ShopTemp, check the status of my order?

I'm bitchin' not because I have nothing better to do. As you can see from a few posts up I still have an order which is supposed to be shipped since the 11th of last month. And the tracking is of little assurance that it's gonna reach me anytime

Speaking of which, I ordered this before the whole "WE TAKE NO MORE ORDERS" thing, and obviously before the "WE TAKE STORE CREDIT ORDERS", but it still says "Awaiting Fulfillment " Perhaps it's not working? Should I "re-order"... assuming I don't get charged again o.0
same thing with me, with the many problems they encountered i think it's normal they arent' as quick as the past; we have to wait, thanks to them for accepting more orders for store credit owners

I never got round to buying anything from there, but it was definitely an asset to the community while it existed in it's previous form.
Although the circumstances around the closure (although they will probably not be revealed to the `public`) are terrible news to us all, it's also indirectly a compliment to Costello and the ShopTemp Team, as obviously ShopTemp was regarded as a bigger threat then the countless other scammers who are out there.

Good job while it lasted

it was a cease and desist letter from the ESA,

that's what {some rom site} got

that's what DX Got

what Amazon got

and that's what the maker of the Chrono Trigger Sequel, Crimson Echoes SNES ROM Hacker got ( I will never forgive them for that)

that's how those alphabet government bastards work
No, it wasn't
I'm completely aware of what actually happened, it's just we're not allowed to say anything about it.
Although, you couldn't be more wrong.

no, because "the powers that be" i.e. GBAtemp Staff are keeping this under wraps.
Like I said, you couldn't be more wrong with your presumptions.
in fact I'd go as far as to say that it's rather humorous how you think you know anything beyond the OP in regards to this affair

Great.... I finally ordered a new flashcart on November 20th, and it's still not here. I guess I've been fucked over.
"They would also like to confirm that all orders that were paid for will be duly shipped, so there is no need to worry or to claim a refund. Customers who have store credit can spend it on ShopTemp before December 31st"
You're fine.

If that's the case, then I guess I should be expecting my DSTWO, as I ordered on the 21st of Nov and shipped the next day.

Providing it doesn't get lost or destroyed.

I should also be expecting my DSTWO as well. I ordered mine on Nov. 29th and shipped in less than 24 hours. Hopefully, it'll get here just in time.

No, they can't take any orders since every payment plan they've signed up for dropped support for their site. You can't add anything in your cart ATM.
