Stamps from the Chalk.....

Have I spotted something I shouldn't......

Just checking the What's new page on the website and found some blank place holders for CHALK stamps 1 & 2 and LBE....

How long do we have to wait?

Oh yes, I see what you mean! I've just been over to the Shop and there are indeed 3 placeholder pages for them :)
Either Ian's been at the sherry again and done that by mistake, or we're being cruelly taunted with stamps that aren't due for another week :twisted:

Heehee!

Sometimes I'm not sure whether it's a good thing that you lot pay such close attention!!

We were conducting some tinkering on the site yesterday which nudified some of my preparatory pages (and lost quite a bit of 'em too, grr)! New Stamps dropping soooon!

All the best,

Reb

Hahahaha... Busted!

Old 'eagle-eyes' Elliot strikes again!

We were GOING to release these next week... but seeing as the cat is out of the bag, I think we'll just cancel the whole issue.

Mitchell, don't make me come down there and get them in person! :twisted: 'Cos you know I'll steal your brandy while I'm at it . . . but will, of course, leave a Guild receipt :wink:

I think that as just reward for my pre-emptive proof reading, I am deserving of something a little special :)

Well you've got to try haven't you

Agreed... you're hereby promoted from 'Rotter' to 'Jolly Rotten Rotter'... congratulations.


You MIGHT see an early release to due the fact that:
1. You've spotted the buggering things
2. We've got a lot of exciting stamps ready for release and
3. We're impatient.

It's a shame no notifications were sent out. I would have had these stamps last week.

I got the promo email as usual - have you accidentally un-subscribed or blocked them?

It was the email sent on the 19th - the Chalk It UP LBE is underneath the Discworld Diary. Upgrades often to weird things - have you checked your Spam folder?
