    PARANOIA!!

    by meshuggah » Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:08 pm

    So, I'm getting paranoid. Allison & Blake left UMC. There has been a "payment system upgrade" for a LONG time now...where no $$ can be sent to UMC.

    Andy, please at least reassure us that this cruise is going to take place!!! A nonannouncement to that effect would be welcome! :? :? :?

    Allison still shows as the group leader?
    Blake is no longer listed

    I was told Bank transfers were ALWAYS welcome. We just can't pay by credit card.

    Oh please don't put that out there. Now I am going to be paranoid since I have already paid.

    Well my name's not Andy, but if I can help, here's some facts:
    "Ticketed passengers receiving their booking before July 27, 2013 will be able to vote on the destination for 70000TONS OF METAL 2014!" ...So voting will take place after July 27, 2013.
    Lapse in announcements so far: 43 days. Longest lapse in band announcements: Barge To Hell - July 27 - November 2 (98 days, if I calculate correctly).
    Bands announced so far: 14 out of 40. Bands cancelled so far: 0.
    Cruises departed: 4. Cruises cancelled: 0.
    Imagine it like this... day 2 of the cruise we are idle in the middle of the sea. Right now we are on day 2, and enjoy the calm. We'll get there, but not before January. Believe me, I want band announcements too but I know there's work to be done, so we'll just have to be patient.

    :viking: :cheers:

    According to Margie she spoke with UMC and they have a new payment system selected and they are in the process of setting it up. I'm sure they're going to announce a couple bands before the voting starts to hype it up a little but I wouldn't expect anything for at least a couple weeks at this point. No matter, I'm used to waiting. They're not dicking around, they're working their asses off wherever they are.

    In years past I have probably been one of the loudest people to bitch and complain during announcement droughts :) I guess, coming all the way from Australia (return flights cost about $2,000) we have to pay quite a bit more in airfares so we have a lot more to lose if something goes wrong.

    But I am not in the least bit worried. As mentioned by Malaka, its only been 43 days so far. Yes Allison and Blake may have left UMC, but there is a new admin already ("Mike") and Allison's name is still there (maybe still helping out due to her passion for metal and 70k?). They have 4 successful cruises under their belts, and the lineup is already killer for cruise number 5.
