    I’m just patiently waiting for Channel Orange to pop up as an exclusive today only to have it link to buy Tabakin. Or better yet have people buy the CO exclusive and send them Tabakin instead. It’s only fair in the spirit of April Fools.

    I’m waiting...

    Question: in the absence of a spreadsheet or curated items list to muddy things, what’s the point of announcing these in a separate thread? Only asking because I rarely get notifications when there are updates in that thread, but I stay active in the store threads and am more likely to see updates here.

    Edit: although I do get the appeal of a single running list of announcements. Simpler for you guys...just harder to keep an eye on when notifications go wonky.

    The Channel Orange exclusive will be real but it'll be pressed by Plain Recordings and it'll be 1xLP

    I think the idea is to keep discussing about the exclusives since the Vinyl Me, Please Exclusives Announcement Thread is "not open for further replies".

    Right, but that’s my point, keeping that thread so limited actually makes it more difficult for me to get notifications when it gets updated. We’re going to discuss them here anyway...why not announce them here? There’s no other ‘store’ info for it to get lost in anymore.

    Just a thought...

    If you're not getting notifications anyway, does it not make it easier to have only one, much shorter thread to check up on? The store thread can get unwieldy and if you're off the forum for a while it's hard to navigate. An announcement-only thread is simple to check, not having to wade through our discussion about everything.

    Just click the "Watch Thread" link in the upper right corner so you'll get notifications. (y)

    I (and I believe a few others) have email notifs set up for the exclusives thread so you don't miss an exclusive even if you can't check the forum for a couple days. If the threads were combined I would have to turn off email notifs to avoid getting 10s-100s of emails a day and would inevitably miss something.

    it'll be a picture disc too...just a picture disc of solid orange printed on black vinyl instead of pressing the album on orange vinyl

    I’ve never missed an announcement and I don’t get any thread notifications. I kind of like it separate tbh. Keeps it organized.

    Fair enough. To be clear, though, my problem isn’t that I don’t get notifications, it’s that I do get notifications, and I get notifications on the exclusives thread *for a while,* but occasionally they just stop. I’ve always attributed that to the fact that I can’t maintain activity on a closed thread, but I’m not positive that’s why.

    Anyway—I hear you. I was assuming this thread was about to get a lot shorter than it’s been in previous months, which would make it easier to see what’s coming, but maybe that won’t be the case.

    @vinylmeplease any way we can get them posted in both threads, since the exclusive thread is locked we can't quote it to post over here so someone is always taking a screenshot to post here.

    Yes, it saves a click but at least it’s something we can all do and get used to.
