Why do you feel anyone who pre-ordered with Target should get special treatment...??Â Â :confused
Target jumped the gun with their solicitation.
Sheesh.Â Â :rolleyes
They weren't supposed to have their webpage up (much less take pre-orders) before MR had their own webpage/solicitation up.
Kudos to MR for actually honouring the pre-orders instead of having Target cancel and resolicit (which they could have done) but to think MR has an obligation to ship helmets to Target before taking care of their customers first...???
Once again, sheesh.
"Waiter? Reality check, please."Â :lol
"Ignored"... :lolOriginally posted by fettpride@Dec 30 2005, 12:19 AM
Actually, I would expect that MR would honor these orders first. Why? Because these orders were actually placed first. Common sense.Â Sheesh.Â :rolleyes
Otherwise the proper thing would have been to make Target send notification to these customers admitting to an error in advertising, after all they had MONTHS to do so. I for one would have been fine with hearing this early on ... I could have then set a REALISTIC expectation as to when I could actually place my order ... and would have been one of the first in line ordering it when everyone else did.Â Sheesh.Â :rolleyes
You don't penalize a your customer base for and advertising error. Just because it was Target that jumped the gun, doesn't mean that MR is not just as much at fault for not demanding a correction while there was still plenty of time to do so. You either fix it, or eat humble pie and honor it. And honoring it would be no different than if you were waiting in any other line, say at the theater, or fast food joint. First come, first serve. Our society is built on this. Wouldn't you be the first one to offer up a big fat lip to someone that cut in front of you in a line? I would hope so. It's not a matter of "Special Treatment" as you say ... Sheesh.Â :rolleyes
To come up here and blast those that are a little pissed about this with an attitude is ridiculous. We're all entitled to speak up about something if it upsets us. All we ever asked for was a response from MR about it. And we were ignored. We had just as much right to have such a small question answered, as those that asked why their Clone Helmets didn't have yellow mowhawks, knowing full well that MR and any other manufacturer disclaims that specifications may change without notice. Yet they sure jumped to answer those questions didn't they? :rolleyes
I think your post was uncalled for, and in poor taste.
Funny.Wouldn't you be the first one to offer up a big fat lip to someone that cut in front of you in a line? I would hope so.
Not necessarily.Actually, I would expect that MR would honor these orders first. Why? Because these orders were actually placed first. Common sense. Sheesh. rolleyes.gif

Sorry for the long and probably boring post.

It's people like you that screw with people at random up here for no reason that give the RPF a bad name. You should have been ignored ... my bad I suppose :lol

Well, apparently my reasoning as to 'Why" I felt Target orders should have been fulfilled first, didn't come across very clear. However, as I eluded to in an above post (between the pointless banter) , I do feel that the way Montagar explained it put in better perspective for me. It makes very reasonable sense. It's a real shame however, that Target early birds didn't have the "Common Sense" (err, uh psychic ability) to see that the Target orders were a blunder, so that they could have ordered it direct much later. But it is how the cookie crumbles as they say ...Originally posted by KevVader@Dec 29 2005, 07:59 PM
Well FP, I can understand your frustration with the wait....but I don't understand why those who ordered through Target would get 1st dibs. Like Montagar said, I think the issue is with Target and not MR.

Hopefully, the factory has cranked a bunch of the lids out and we'll all get them soon.
