I don't use the varient box for my foiles, I sleeved them and stuck them in a nice 4-card binder. I keep the foils box for my old sentinels cards, and have people play with them if I don't trust them to treat my foils properly.

Did you know that (9 * 12) + 2 = 110?

So, does anyone have any good suggestions on what to do when FedEx smart post consistently messes up deliveries? In particular, when the post office seems to mess up delivery?

 

I had an issue with the Sentinels Foil pack getting lost in the mail that got resolved with GTG's help (Thanks for being awesome, Craig!), and now a different Kickstarter that was supposed to arrive today is listed as "incorrect address" and being returned to sender. Verified the info in BackerKit and FedEx are correct, so I can't tell if it's a fluke, but 2 for 2 with Kickstarter packages within a month of each other is really concerning.

This should probably be it's own post, but if I'm making a deck of custom playing cards with the sentinels on them, do I need copyrights from >games? They'd only be for home use, and I thouught it a fun novelty.Took me forevertom  ake, but worth it. Would show pic, but size purposes...

People have made all sorts of creative things featuring Sentinels-related artwork (eg painting, crochet, sculpture) - there's a thread somewhere for fan art and other such creations. As long as you're not trying to make money out of it I'm pretty sure it's fine :).

Ha! Nice, Donner. wink

That looks great, Lord Flash Fire! Would you be willing to share who you used for which card? (If so, we can split it off to allow it to be its own thread of conversation, too.)

Today I'm leaving for  a planned vacation where there is little/no internet connection, I planned it a month ago or so, then a little while  later I hear that this is when the anniversry is happening. Grumble grumble. I hate watching reruns.

Yeah, I guesss I'm more impressed with the lack of security rather than the spambot itself.

"Thundersnow" would be a great name for a superhero.

Glancing up a couple posts, it occurs to me that "Spambot" would be a pretty good name for a mini-nemesis.

Was once walking past some bins and randomly thought that "General Waste" would be a good villain name - some kind of army general-type guy whose aim is causing pollution or generally making a mess :D.
