  1. Are you ever going to fix your price guides? They take waaay too long to load, AND Hour of devastation is still not up. Come the hell on. You guys are really falling short of your priorities.

    1. Keith, I’m guessing the answer is “not for a good while”. The tech is overloaded with things that need doing, and hiring additional full time help is not sustainable, according to James and co. It’s definitely on the decline, especially since the promised tech related overhaul from several weeks ago is still not there yet.

        1. Another good question. At this point, this site doesn’t really offer much and certainly doesn’t encourage users to pay $5 a month to enjoy their so called benefits (which do not seem to pay off according to what I’ve heard from others).

        2. If you are referring to the podcast, its posted every week in the pro trader forums. If you are referring to something else, then I have no clue what you are referring to.

          1. One thing I want to put out there.

            I notice that it is fairly popular to come to the comments section for the articles to make grievances about the site. If what people want is to have their complaints ignored, or not even seen, then please continue. I’ve not seen where many people are getting any satisfaction from the MTGPrice crew by doing so.

            On the other hand, I have experienced myself, and have been told by others, that if you contact James directly, he deals with the problems quickly, or at least has an answer one way or the other.

            I am 100% serious and am not trying to be a dick to people who are frustrated. I understand and agree with most of the reasons people are frustrated about.

            If anyone said to me that things should work differently on this site, I would totally agree. The fact is, things haven’t worked that way since Alistair abandoned the site, and things will continue to be wrong for an indefinite amount of time.

            So, if the question of getting ones moneys worth is causing aggravation, it may be wise to consider the above paragraph, because, for anyone who chooses to stick around and is already frustrated, its going to be status quo for quite some time.

          2. When did they announce that change? Did management decide that it was no longer beneficial to release it to the public after 48 hours or so? This is very bad form, as they are taking away the already few (if any) hooks to Protrader membership.

  2. I was so heartbroken and don’t know what to do with myself but after 3 days of contacting dr_mack@yahoo. com , my Ex lover came back on his kneel begging me to take him back.
