It seems with my announcement and the following sorrow has woken up the other admins despite my reassurance of proof that this project was dead. I slapped Death in the face? Turned into a ghoul? no clue but we are back on. It won't be sudden as ourselves need to go into major overhaul so this doesn't happen again but I can share some info.

-All refunds have been completed, I have seen the account myself.
-Wepay(or whatever it is called) account will be coming within the week.
-Weekly Meetings/Announcement of where we are at so we do not dissapper again.

So on my part, I apologize for the doom and gloom story yesterday, though not quite sure if it was a bad thing cause fires were lit and plots were burnt. I don't like smiles but this somes up the situation.

December 16, 2011...Of course I started a little earlier than that, surfing the internet almost taking a week to find this group when it was not even hitting 100 members. We have come a long way from then, what started as nothing more than a novel idea into actual physical evidence. I make myself sound more important than I really was as while I put my time into it, there is not a single thing I could point at and say "I did that." However I was there with my stick poking and pressuring, helping to get the momentum(even if I had to jump in and get dirty myself) to get the work done, This project had its up and downs. Ups being able to have the book finished in my hands. The downs when I murdered the project in the first degree by chasing away the one person that made it possible. I don't think there has been any other time in my life when a consequence had me throwing up in a potty potty on the 45th floor of a high rise.

It was a great ride but this one has reached the end, at least with us being the ones driving it. Momentum has been at a stand still, it has been like this for months starting all the way from the first print. Many of us were so content just to have the project finished that it was hard to get back on the saddle. We pushed on regardless though not wanting to disappoint but sadly it wasn't to be. What would take days would take weeks, what took weeks would take months. Soon there was periods where admins wouldn't talk for months. When members come more active than the people running the show, you know things have gone into the deep end. XD

There is no one to blame. I myself went MIA for almost two months fighting my own demons. Life continues to move on no matter what you wants, sometimes the roadblocks are big enough to drag you with it. You people have been great to talk/work with and I would do it all over again if I had the chance.

For those hoping for the second print, I apologize too you, It was something we all wished but we can't fulfill it. I'm telling you all so you can make attempts to make other plans. I wish you all with the best of luck.

I said I would update when I got new info and I do finally have some. I have been given access to the Paypal account and will be sending out refunds, all I am missing at the moment is the list of who to refund but I have info on how and which order. Refunds are happening in order of received money and so far we have made it up to May 4th. I will spend a couple hours a night sending them out until we are finished.

Unfortunately paypal decided not to cooperate with us this year. And its too late in the season to reorganize things with Wepay. So here is what I am going to do:

A. I am going to refund everybody
B. I am going to set things up with OKpay
C. I am going to contact people that have orders placed currently and ask if they want to place an order in the new system
D. We'll take orders over the summer and that allows us all year to get organized for next summer
E. I'll sacrifice another year of no internships for doing books

Unfortunately the invoice requests have been scattered among so many different emails and lists that it is hard to keep track of who I have and haven't replied to. So for the interests of simplicity if you haven't heard back from me about invoices please send them to this email: foerequest@gmail.com I will work to respond to them as they come in this weekend.

Sorry my friends. You may have noticed that I have been rather inattentive for the last month and a half. It is because I was doing a project for senior level class I am in... and I am a freshman. Ironically the things I designed could appear in the fallout universe. You can see an image of the design here: http://imgur.com/a/m74XK

This project has is what has been sucking up all my time and caused me to go multiple days in a row without sleep. Now that the design is finished rest assured I will be able to send you guys your payment confirmations and do everything else that is needed for the project this summer.

P.S. If you are interested Nixie tubes are old displays that were invented in the 50's. Eventually I plan to integrate this project with a holotape player which I have half built.

Okay, looks like some slots opened up in the main list due to cancellations and duplicates. So, we are opening up a waiting list, first come, first serve. Being on the list is no guarantee of getting a set, just a chance. Signups will be pulled from the waiting list to fill in empty slots in the main list.

You can sign up here.

Posting this to Reddit would be helpful, if someone wants to :twilightsmile:

Please be patient though, I can only send 200 a day. Also, people ordering more then one set will get personalized invoices sent.

If you put special instructions in the shipping notes, like gift wrap and such, then we will try to send out updated invoices as we go through them manually.

Sorry for the long black out my friends. I am currently finalizing things with paypal, and Kayleen is getting quotes from the printers. The emails for pricing will come soon I promise. I am still learning the ropes from Alex on how to manage this massive project.
Posted by Autunite at Mon Apr 01, 2013 12:13 am Comments ()
Thanks for signing up everyone, emails will be sent out when we have the cost/shipping details.
Posted by Arcane_Scroll at Thu Mar 07, 2013 7:37 pm Comments ()
That's right guys, we've bumped our limit up to 800 thanks to the fellas over in San Diego willing to help us out with the shipping.

[strike]Head over to ******/ and sign up.[/strike]
Sign ups are closed up guys! We're at our 800 limit.

If you want to know if you are already on the list, check your inbox and junk folder for a confirmation email. If you can't find it in either of those send us an email, or pm on the forums or facebook.

Hey guys we are considering expanding a little so we can go over the limit I set earlier. What we really need is some people that live in the San Diego area. We still haven't agreed exactly on how we would do this but the basic facts remain. I need a guy to help me ship books. Depending on how we do this we may be able to continue to ship books when I go back to college in the fall. So if you live in the San Diego area or know somebody in the San Diego area please contact me here or on facebook. I am George Bushnell there.

We will No longer be accepting pre-orders since we have gone over our limit. Thankfully not by much but we have still gone over regardless.

However the waiting period is still the same. We will not be sending out quotes until late February. Thank you everyone who signed up. It's very appreciated. Happy waiting everybody. :cwalk:

Sorry for the confusion but there seems to be many people asking this question, either by asking or going as far as asking for the price. For us to have Pink Eye's hard covered, we need to have the sources which is the story actually formatted and the pics drawn for them. While I am glad you guys are excited, lets turn that excitement to productivity and get the first step done. XD

Check what needs to be done on the Pink Eyes page, there is nothing stopping us from formatting while the printing is going.

The time has come everyone. The second printing has begun. Before I get you all more info on how to order a set I just want to take the time to thank everyone for waiting so patiently. Myself and all of the admins thank you very much. Now, on to the second printing info!

For all of you who are getting a set, whether it's your first or your second set there are going to be some actual deadlines this time and some general rules.

[*]Starting from now until February the 17th, you will be able to sign up for a set.
[*]You do not have to pay now but Do not sign up if you will not be able to pay for your books. This makes it harder for everyone.
[*]The reason you do not pay now is because we will be getting a quote after we learn how many people have signed up for books.
[*]The last sets were 73 USD if you need a general idea.
[*]If you can please include your phone number in the sign up notes so we can contact you easier.
[*]When you sign up, remember to set the project as Fallout: Equestria [Second Printing]

Now that the rules have been established, to sign up for your set, go to:

Happy new year everypony.

Hey all, first of all, thanks for being patient through are silence and decided to give an update on where we are.

As for the second printing, this is something that is taking a little longer than we hoped to get ready. The problem is the people that made the first print successful isn't able to do it a second time due to life taking importance. This also includes the staff that we have moved around to fill positions. While this print will go smoother from knowing more, it is also going to take longer to accomplish because of having less time to dedicate to the project. We apologize we couldn't meet demand before the holidays but we are hoping we can get started very early(Jan-Feb) next year.

This doesn't mean we are dead however, while the site is an huge improvement over Facebook, we were saddened that we lost a huge amount of activity when we tried to shift over. The more activity this group has, the faster things get done as we build both momentum and motivation. Here is a list of things we are hoping to get started before the end of the year:

FAQ UPDATE: Sorry this is taking so long to do. XD

PRINTING TUTORIAL: A step by step guide for people so they can set up their own prints or print themselves. covering everything down to legality.

PINK EYES PROJECT: Will be making a detailed list of things we need, from pictures, logos, and fonts, contact with the author soon to get started.

Will add an edit if something has slipped my mind.

Pony on <3

Just a reminder for anyone who would like to try their hand at any of the dust jackets, there is now a template. Or of you'd like to just fix up the ones you already have, and check them.

You can find those here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=76

First thing's first. This is probably a method only those in the US can do, but this is a method that's been tried and has succeeded.

Go to: http://derpy.me/6QXb- This page will take you to office depots file upload page for banners.

Once you reach this page, start uploading the files of the dustjackets you want to print. I suggest doing all 5 at once and going and reading your books while you wait. It will probably take awhile due to how large the files are.

After your documents are uploaded and you continue, there will be a message that pops up asking if you have permission. It is just a formality, don't worry. Just press Yes and continue.

Now, here comes the fun part. You're going to click the blue "modify document" button. These inputs will be the same for any dust jacket you choose to use.

Format: Color - single sided
Paper: Glossy Elite 80lbs
Leave everything else at none.

Next you're going to want to go to modify output size.

On each one you're going to want to put in the dimensions

Book 1: 9.25in X 20.53in
Book 2: 9.25in X 20.59in
Book 3: 9.25in X 20.64in
Book 4: 9.25in X 20.94in
Book 5: 9.25in X 20.89in

Thanks to Charlie Corbett on the facebook page! :lwalk:

We're sorry that it had to come to this but it's far too disorganized. We welcome you all in with open arms, including all of you who are merely lurking and waiting for the second printing. Please bookmark this page and check back often.
