After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

The paper we're using is actually on the thicker side of what people know as 'Bible paper.' We thought about going with the even thinner stuff, but then the books would only be like an inch thick.

While that'd be cool, it's a little smaller than what we're aiming for.

First it was 5 books, then it was 3 books and now it's 1. That's pretty neat. But I can't help but think that if I get this, I'm going to rip the pages just by the sheer fact that they're going to be super skinny and near tissue paper level of destructible... The book sounds awesome and I do want it, but...

How thick is this going to be with pages that skinny?

I'm super hype for the printing! I've been checking the site every few days waiting for an update. Everything sounds amazing about it.. except the bible paper. I really don't care for that stuff, it tears easy and it's a pain to turn, I always end up turning 3 pages and have to go back and pull the pages apart to get to the one I want.. Disappointed, but I'm still excited! Going to pick up a copy for sure!

On a side note, I really hope you go with regular paper when you get around to Project Horizons! I'm even more excited for that printing, Blackjack is best pony after all! :bwalk:

Thanks, guess I should have been more thorough :twilightblush:

I did get to the "Thanks for filling the form" screen (again, more than once...) so I'm sure it went through. I wouldn't want to add work for you by also sending you an email. Thanks for the response :twilightsmile:

Excellent! Finally in time for a printing and I have the funds. Wish either of those were true with the first printing. x]

The FAQ says it estimates about 1-2 months for production and shipping. Can we assume this is relatively close to the January 8th date (and therefore likely, at earliest, sometime mid February)? I'm moving in between now and near the end of January, and would like to verify which address to use.

After the 8th we'll get new quotes, then start taking payments. Once everyone has paid we can pay the manufacture. From there production and shipping (to us) will take 1-2 months, then probably another week or two for us to get the books shipped out to you guys.

So I would definitely put your new address down.

I hope the pages feel smooth rather than rough. Thanks for answering my other question, though!

Click on the link in the first post on this thread and fill out the form, they will send an invoice through email when they are ready to accept payments for books.
