    Got mine today, too. The letter had seemingly been opened (guess that's the post office for you), but everything was in there and intact. Thanks!

A few years ago I was supposed to receive pins from ocremix.org, and I received an empty opened letter. Be glad yours was only opened, your post office is definitely better than what we have here in Italy! :(
    People who trade stuff with Italians on eBay are horrified by our mail system. Only insured/traced packages have a slight chance to arrive safely (and even then, my 12" Sonic Statue I bought one year ago from First4Figures arrived with a damaged package).

    Just got mine, with a torn envelope and a "Sorry, we're incompetent bastards" slip to go with it. Still, everything else has arrived intact, and now I have snazzy pins!

    Mine came sometime in the last several days (don't always check my box too often as it's over a mile away from the house). :D

    I was wondering what that odd envelop with no return address was... I just opened it to find a nice card and some pins. Thanks!

    I'm sorry to say that my household has not been delivered a set of beautiful, shiny buttons. I initially suspected that the reason might be:

Having waited a week, now is an appropriate time to start calling the Royal Mail to ask what the heck might be up. I've also sent SS a PM with my billing address to see if it may have been incorrect somehow.

    I've not got them either, yet. I'm still gonna wait a li'l while, personally, unless anyone else thinks I should get to calling and complaining.

    I wonder if this person could be me, I have used mutiple PayPal accounts in the past, due to
    restrictions on the number of cards used. If you could possibly find the time to PM the email address used I could confirm if it was me or not.

    EDIT: broken quote box.

    Still don't have my pins :(
     
  10. I would donate if it were not for the fact that I have no credit card, am unemployed, and a minor.

    Still, I hope you receive the funding you need.

    Yeah, no luck here either. :(
     
  15. I can't really contribute cause I don't have PayPal or a debit card. But, I did come up with a advert slogan:
    "Make the site second best to Sega Retro, No. 1. Support Sonic Retro Now!"
