Default Thanks

So after a two week alpha test, with many suggestions, a few errors, and a lot of hard work, I am very happy.

I wanted to congratulate Leon and Matt for all their fine work. It is my sincerest hope that we may finally have a legitimate option to fleabay for the buying and selling of our obsessions.

I wish you good fortune in the work ahead, and am ready for the Beta test whenever you are.


BTW, does Matt ever sleep? He seems to answer emails all the time. Leon, be careful, don't want to burn him out too soon.

Default Me too!

I also want to thank Matt & Leon for the opportunity to participate in the Alpha Test---It was fun & I sold a few things to boot!

I hope some, or all, of the suggestions can be implemented to add a little more refinement, but I don't think there were any huge glitches at all!

I'm sure there will be something surface down the line that we didn't run into this 1st time around, but I'm sure it will be minor & just require some fine tuning!

I'm ready to move on to Beta, Stage II or whatever may be next! I'll be more than willing to help out again!

I would love to hear a capsule report of what YOU (Leon & Matt) have to say about how the test went overall!
I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.

Default Thanks for the well wishes and....

Thanks for the well wishes, guys. Here is a quick email we sent out to all members of GSB...

Thanks to all of you for participating in the alpha testing phase of
Grand Slam Bids, which has successfully concluded. We could not be
happier with how the trial went. In fact, we are blown away by the
amount of encouragement and feedback you offered. If you have any
suggestions that you have not yet submitted, please do so in the next
few days, as we're trying to establish a time line and can only do so
once we've identified everything that we will be changing before we
launch. Our success is going to be proportional to the community's
response, and with what we have observed through this alpha test, we
are becoming increasingly encouraged.
Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
-Leon & Matt
