    Hey all,

    We just launched all new Product Description Pages in the store - it's been a ton of work, but we think they've turned out really well and now give you much more of the information you need to make a good purchase decision.

    As you might assume we had a ton of manual data entry to get the data for existing products and while I'd love to assume we nailed it, with 300+ products and new code, etc. we likely missed a few.

    So...if you find any mistakes in the store for the next 5 days fill out this form:

    http://bit.ly/2LgBCG8

    You'll get $5 in store credit for each identified error.

    Tally HO!

    Not necessarily something wrong data entry-wise, but the show more/show less feature is formatting a little weird for Weezer - Pinkerton at least.

    Show more clicked in the top part, show less clicked in the bottom.

    Hey all, appreciate the grammar & punctuation catches, but intent here is more for product detail errors like showing 1LP when you know it's 2LP etc. We'll try to honor everything so far, but saying we forgot a space before a dash (though I give kudos for the eagle eye) isn't really the intent :)

    You could change the message to "kudos for minor mistake such as grammar and credit to major mistakes as wrong discs number, wrong speed etc."

    Just now read this after submitting a good handful of grammatical mistakes...whoops. I can still get that credit though?



    edit: also totally willing to be hired for a small fee to go in a fix all the grammatical errors. ;)

    Uh, is the Murder by Death "The Other Shore" in the store actually smoke vinyl? Because that was the Kickstarter exclusive, which cost, uh, significantly more than $20.

    Yup, I did. I'll be a little annoyed if it does turn out to be the same version.

    I highly doubt it. The standard version is also coloured, but it's red. They probably just got the colour wrong.

    If I wasn't in the midst of Tax Season, Part II: The Corporate Idiocy, and my life weren't completely the sticky pudding upside down - I would win all the moneys. I catch all typos, unless they're my own (clearly).

    I am sure it depends on if you were the first to report the issue

    Oh God, I would gladly freelance copy edit the VMP editorial stuff. Some of it--even in the Classics booklets, *printed*--is laughably bad and unprofessional.

    True but I assume they're fixing these as they receive them..at least I hope that's what they would do.

    I reported 5 or 6 things yesterday. It looks like most have been corrected, but I have no credits showing. Then again, someone else may have beat me to it.
