    Hi
    I was asked to post this message by the Directors of CD-WOW, who I work for.
    It was felt that it would be nice to give back to you guys. After PMing one of the moderators and not hearing anything I posted.

    Nevermind.

    Goodbye.

    I can't seem to get onto the CD Wow site at all - been trying on and off for an hour or two - using our own forum voucher link and my own link in my favourites!

    Is there a problem with the site?


    Quarksplace - can you tell us what was at the other end of the link or at least give us a clue?

    For future reference, you should use the contact link at the bottom of the forums to contact me about such things as the moderators moderate - they don't deal with the type of arrangement you are suggesting.
    Instead you have posted this message which I think sounds a bit petulant and so won't convey a good impression of CDWOW.
    If you do indeed work for them.

    cd-wow is down at the moment, the firewall server died and when it came up its not liking the port forwarding rules. We're working to fix it and hope to have it up later.

    I dont know if he works for them or he knows someone who does. But he seems to have detailed knowledge of their operation from the comments he has made in the past.

    Coming clean, I have worked for CD-WOW for over four years as Technical consultant to the Directors. I wrote the anti-fraud, shipping, warehouse, manangement systems that the company use. I regularly go out the HK warehouse and get called on to fix things. The whole sliders issue happened because of a glitch in my code and as such I wanted to keep an eye out here and help where I can.

    Best Wishes

    I've pm'd a couple of people, I got the link dates wrong, it actually expires 3/12 so when the next one appears I'll let some people know. What I'm also trying to get from Marius the marketing director is a list of what's on a mailout when it happens so it can be posted here and people that get it three days after the mailout begins have the same chance to get the deals.

    Cheers

    If this is some sort of apology to the people who ordered Sliders and had their order cancelled when others, (who had ordered later) got their Sliders DVDs, wouldn't it be better to contact us direct with an "apology".

    All all got when I phoned to complain was a promise to email me a replacement £1 e-voucher for the one I had used, (and I never got that either :( )

    On the up side I must compliment CD WOW on their excellent returns policy - I was sent prepaid packaging and told not to return the faulty item (Star Trek Box Set) until I had received my replacement :smashin:

    Sorry to hear about that, suggest you re-contact customer service about your voucher.

    basically what happened was cd-wow offered the sliders dvd box set on its site. Its supplier did not supply everything that was ordered so some people had their orders cancelled and refunded. Unfortunately due to a glitch in the shipping software the ones that did get their orders werent in the date order they were taken, so some people got it even though they ordered later. This has now been fixed in the shipping code so it cannot happen again.

    Best

    i was the original poster of the slider bargain on these forums and also on the dvdforums and the sliders farce has been the only time ive ever been disappointed in anything cdwow have done.

    i once bought a copy sex and the city (season5 i think) for a female colleague at work and when i took it in and she unwrapped it there were no discs. it was sorted out instantly.

    i guess that as cdwows customer service is of such a high standard that when something bad happens we all feel a bit more let down than perhaps we should because its something that we just wouldnt expect from cdwow.

    theres currently active threads on several boards regarding the indiana jones trilogy with the medallion and since the delay in posting was announced theres been a few murmurings of what happenned with sliders.

    until the sliders thing i dont anyone had a bad word to say against cdwow.

    Agreed. As I said at the time they do an excellent job really and we all end up getting some good deals. I certainly wasnt that bothered about it and was one of the people who ordered early doors and missed out.

    Some people are suing you :eek: just becuase you failed to deliver a DVD set. They all got refunds didn't they. I don't understand some people, what do they hope to gain from suing you. Don't you have something in your T&Cs to protect from this kind of thing?

    All things in perspective. Some people are just unreasonable at the end of the day. They sell stuff cheap, really cheap and the service is good.

    But the real issue is they sell alot of stuff. So things will go wrong occasionally. The companies we should be getting wound up about are the likes of Tesco who never admit they are wrong and wont make good when they make a mistake Unless they get a dressing down on Watchdog :devil:

    I cant understand the mindset of these idiots who will get letigious over a £15 DVD. It just dosnt make sense. They must have really sad boring lives to have the time and inclination to take such steps.

    but even with terms getting out of it - you can hardly say there's no contract and then take someone's money.

    this isn't aimed at cdwow in particular but online companies are very very quick to take the cash and worry about the problems later.

    hi quarksplace, cdwow are a top company to buy dvd's from and you guys provide a great service and great prices. discount vouchers are a nice bonus too.

    as for being sued by people ? thats just silly and those offending should be strung up.
