    I was trying to make a pre-order but the site never loads and times out. Anyone else having problems?

    The ShopTemp team is hoping to move the site to a dedicated server in the near future, so bear with them during these occasional minor hiccups. It's up and working again now. [​IMG]

    Finally loaded, paypal accepted the payment but page stopped loading after that (shoptemp not paypal). I logged in to look to see if my order was on my account and it does not show up.

    The issue isn't on ShopTemp's end, but rather the host. They're doing tests to fix a slowdown problem on the network. If all goes well the shop will be back up and faster than ever in no time.

    EDIT: It's back up. [​IMG]

    edit: Yes, apparently they're back up. Just wanted to add that the last sentence of the twitter post was, what I wanted to point out.

    Well folks, it seems the issue is fixed. And to compensate for the downtimes, the ShopTemp team and GBAtemp have decided to extend the offer on $29.95 DSTWO pre-orders to more than the initial 100 for a while. It will be at cost to both sites, but neither we nor ShopTemp mind taking a hit to apologize and benefit you guys. [​IMG]

    That is really cool of both ShopTemp and GBAtemp. Service like this makes a customer a regular.

    No it was actually down twice since I been on it. But I am sure that is one of the reasons it went down.

    @ joe_gamer
    Did you post it there? It was inevitable that someone would post it on deal sites.

    Can't the mods PM the discount to all the members at once instead of posting it?

    That would seem a better idea to me, but then it only takes one idiot to post it on again.
