This thread should be only used on PO nights for ANY new Macross release and should ONLY be used exclusively on PO night and for as many weeks as necessary after PO night....I am thinking 2-3 week window starting with PO night.....this window would be exclusively used to post ONLY PO info, but namely direct members to "spottings" of PO's at various online retailers as they become available bth during PO Night and 2-3 weeks post PO Night....

Going forward.....we would all come back to this thread for the next PO night and any future PO nights for ANY Macross-related PO product....

Additionally, mods can decide if it is worth locking and unlocking this thread as appropriate.....

I think this experiment can work if we all stick to these guidelines...more importantly, it will eliminate dozens of pages of PO related posts in the "regular" DX and other Macross product threads that are currently available or can become available going forward.....

Good luck Macross Worlders....I know you can do it! 

 

Suggestions/Ideas before the first PO Go-Live:

1. List pertinent info regarding the PO in the Subject line

2. Open thread a few days before the confirmed PO go-live date to try and capture and respond to FAQs

3. Come to a consensus on how long to keep it open after PO night....suggestions? thoughts?

4. The PO Night thread will be a recycled thread that will open/close with each new Macross product's PO announcement

5.  The PO Night thread is mainly for PO that last for "one night only" (mostly Bandai)...however, any Macross PO will be listed here when info becomes available

Good idea.

However it has been ages since I participated in a PO night for Macross since Bandai doesn’t seem to release any toys.

Or have I slept on various DX releases without even knowing that they are happening. Wait, is the DX YF-21 out already... :lazy:

Looking forward to all the Macross Delta: Zettai Live Valkyrie PO nights. ^_^

Updating first post with some of the suggestions/ideas submitted so far...

How long should the thread stay open after PO night?  What makes sense or what have we seen with other PO nights?  Essentially, it would makes sense to keep it open to capture related PO info like links to late-comer retailer links, etc....

Any thoughts regarding eBay and Amazon listings as these can go weeks and weeks into PO madness...

 

 

 

I'm thinking after 2-3 week, the PO Madness thread will gracefully close down until the next PO is announced....

At that point, listings can either be listed in an appropriate "item of Interest" thread found here:

 http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/forum/13-where-to-buy-macross-auctions-amp-dealers-specials/

Or....we can agree to allow listing to be posted in the appropriate toy's product thread for a reasonable amount of time afetr the PO thread closes and after actual release date.....for the example, the VF-1D's thread is here:

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/49031-bandai-dx-vf-1d-july-2021/?tab=comments#comment-1568182

 

Again, this is all a work in progress.....any suggestions are welcomed while we wait for the next PO to be announced...

Do we get another thread for release day or is that included in this? If the latter, update the title.

This is an example of what I was afraid of. Changing things to change them without a well thought out plan ........and making things worse.

We may also want to try opening it a few days before the po goes live to spot the random early bird listings and allow for the usual chatter like "what does NY mean?" :)

Will need to somehow sticky links to all the various retailer opinion threads.... Don't need to hear for the 1000th time the varying opinions of the various retailers. 

We all want confirmation that a retailer is going to deliver, especially when they appear to be the only option available at a reasonable (or not) price. However, there have been so many different experiences with the same retailers in question, the potential buyer really needs to understand under what circumstances things happened to make up their own mind on whether the risks are worthwhile to them.

I never heard of a plan that is flawless from day one...Have you?

Just take some time and start reading what has already been said and suggested so far.....

With that said, to answer your question...yes....the thought is to keep this "PO" thread active for 2-3 weeks after PO night....that is what we should all be trying to come to a consensus about...how many weeks after PO night would it make sense to keep this thread open?  1 week, 2...3 or more?  Most of us have been through this and have a general idea of long PO "chatter" lasts after PO night....the point of this thread is to keep all that noise out of the "dedicated" toy threads....

For release day, all you do is simply start posting on the toy's dedicated thread......remember, we are going to experiment with going back with how things were done before.........so the first "test case" will be for the release of the Bandai DX VF-1D, which a dedicated thread has already been created and waiting for release day...it is also currently is open for posting anything "new" regarding its release that may come up between now and release day...

Does this include TWE’s?

The PO Night thread will open/close for every PO that gets announced.....

If all goes well, a new dedicated toy topic will get created by the first member that learns of it.....then as soon as we find out when it's PO will open, we would kickoff the process to open up (unlock) the PO night thread and then close it (lock it) once it no longer needs to be open.....the whole process will repeat itself with each new Macross product that is announced...

The only problem with that is that Macross World does not make "suggestions" or "endorses" any particular vendor or retailer.....

If you want to know if a shop is worthy of your hard-earned cash....it is best to follow the Straight-Shooter thread and the Blacklist thread....

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/forum/9-for-sale-trade/

Or simply follow the various toy threads....that type of info gets around.....

Toy retailer links can be found here....again, do your own research...you are ultimately responsible for your purchasing decisions

Dumb question:  are the Arcadia preorders just as crazy, or is this just a Bandai thing?

Haven’t really order any Arcadia products before, so just curious.

Potential candidates could be the DX GBP set, another DYRL Skull Squadron VF-1A, final Vermillion Squadron member DX VF-1A Kakizaki TV....who knows, maybe the DX YF-21 as suggested......or how about the dang HMR Tomahawk or Phalanx...one can dream right? ;)

That's exactly what I meant but maybe put those link near the first post etc so people can find it.... I would also suggest the NY thread as no doubt they will come up in PO discussions :)

Man a DX YF-21 or a DX Kaki 1A TV would be great this year!

I had another idea for PO Night.......I was thinking if it would be a good idea to also "lock" the corresponding toy threads.....in the case of the NEXT announced PO....we could simultaneously lock the page that will be created for it for a day or two while the PO Night page remains open (which currently it would remain open for about 2-3 weeks)....thoughts?

My concern is that some members seem to NOT want this plan or "idea" to work....so I can see those individuals continuing to fill the pages we are trying to keep clean with the type of posts that should remain here in order for this experiment to have a shot at succeeding....thoughts?

Nah, that could make this place start feeling authoritarian. If you need to force people to do things it means it probably isn’t the best plan to begin with. Just leave it and see how it goes.

I agree. Let's just see how it goes

I'm late to the discussion, but wanted to say that I'm really into the new direction we're taking with this pinned pre-order thread and the separate toy threads. I'm hoping that it all works out, although I also understand how big changes like these get pushback from those who got used to the previous paradigm. I've seen it in the writing industry as everyone there is still slowly moving from printed publishing to the more modern digital methods of content delivery. There are a lot of parallels there, but it's all off-topic on this site, so I'll just summarize it by saying this: although there is push back early on, once your audience sees that the new system is working it's usually accepted by most. 

All that is to say that I don't think we need to worry about any hardline stubbornness in this case.

Anyway, I like the idea of a 2-3 week window for keeping this thread "live" so to speak. As long as there is an active pre-order going on during that window, this thread should be open to new posts—an accessible resource. If we enter a lull that's longer than that set time, then ideally all thread activity should die down naturally within the same short window. There may be some stragglers who stop in, but these forum members would be able to easily review the latest pre-order activity and go to the respective toy threads to wait for release day updates. If things get out of hand, and something happens whereas this thread dives way off topic, the moderators can certainly lock the thread as they do. That's a good backup option.

Basically, I'm thinking we should keep the purpose of this thread as simple and as focused as we can. I don't see any reason to make it complicated.

hey everyone

being away for a long time, im thinking in getting back to the P.O madness like old times!

It's gotten more brutal in some ways- Roy's DX was almost instantaneously gone at most sites. But we're seeing restock and drop in prices, so scalpers may have been beaten at their own game and things might return to ordinary PO madness.
