    Just want to thank the LavaCorp pros, for their assistance to us "newbies".

    It was pretty wild last night, very intense!

    I feel for those who didn't get a Lava Tank, but I guess that's what makes them even more special then simply how beautiful they are... the fact that you know, when you DO finally get one, that not everyone can simply go on the web and order one!

    Patience!

    Of course it's much easier to preach patience when you've lucked out.....

    I don't believe so. I think it was around 9:10CST that he said all previous PMs were null and void because of the server issues.

    With 105 peeps trying for a tank, odds are you won't get one unfortunately. If you didn't get a PM, you didn't. Don't feel bad man. I have missed out twice out of 5 sales.

I think I probably disqualified myself because I went ahead and sent the PM during the crash...couldn't tell if that went through, so between 9:00-9:04, I sent 4 more PMs because I didn't know the sale hadn't been launched and had no clue if the PMs went through! So when he changed it to 10:00, I sent the 10:00 PM at 10:01...Did he just boot my behind because of the previous PMs?

    Anyway, it was fun. I shall return for more nicotine overdoses and headaches.

    Thank you! I must have missed that post in the frenzy at the time. Okay... Now I know I have to be faster than one minute...and put "any" as my third tank choice. And pray for no server crash! OMG...that was intense, to say the least.

    I have a feeling last night was my "lucky first try". You can bet I'll be trying again, but with more and more people sending PMs... , it certainly adds to the excitement. It really is just plain fun to try. I can't remember the last time I felt that kind of rush. I hope I still feel that way when I'm not successful.

    Yep I love the rush. Reminds me of playing cards in huge pots. I just tend to lose less money this way. Lol! Jk I'm actually a really good card player.

    what I can tell you is, I also send a PM, during the crash. Now... I didn't send 5 of them, but I did send just one, because my browser wasn't refreshing, and I was worried that I would miss out, so I figured I'd just send it and see what happened.

    I then found out it was rescheduled, resubmitted a new PM at the rescheduled time after the post starting things, and I was lucky enough to win a Lava Tank.

    So apparently (and rightly, in my opinion), Jon did NOT disqualify anyone who sent a PM early, he just ignored 'em.

    It took me 5 tries exactly. I was even on the tankless list for 3 of them (I got home too late to get my choices in, so got booted to the next list 2 times). Never posted 1 message bitching about it, just tried again the next time. Just sayin!!
