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.

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
Posted by RPpirate at Tue Oct 23, 2012 5:52 pm Comments (0)
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.

Alright folks, get ready because it's UPDATE TIME!!!!!!

As of today, all but a select few of the sets have been mailed out. That means that in just under a week, everyone should have their set. The few of you that are the exception should be receiving an email from me in the next couple of days explaining what the delay is and it should be worked out relatively soon. On a more general note, almost $2000 was left over from shipping due to overestimated shipping costs and a $5 print cost reduction between the price freezing and the actual number of sets that were ordered. As stated towards the beginning of the project, everything that was leftover is going to go to a charity of the groups choosing. However, I want to hold on to the money for the next few weeks to make sure that if any problems arise from shipping errors we will have the funding to handle them. Start discussing the charity you want it to go to in the comments below. Also, if it's ok with everyone I would like to reimburse myself for the font I bought way back during formatting for the book. I didn't think back then that I was going to get paid back and I was fine with it but it was a big hit on my finances and getting that back would really help me out financially. At any rate, let me know what you guys think in the comments.

Hey there everyone,

Just thought I'd shout out a bit of an update. The international shipping was finished not too long ago and they should start arriving for all you internationals. Now this also means that domestic shipping has started! However the timing is such that Alex has to go back to school - this means that shipping will happen only on the weekends. (Fridays and Saturdays.) To give you guys an idea, about a hundred domestics have been sent out so there's between a hundred and two hundred books left before all of the shipping is done and the second printing begins.
