Ok sorry about the delay folks. I have been slaving over my pc for two weeks now, day and night, trying to get the new site finished and needed to take a break. Give me a few more days to get fixes and more updates to the system, then I'll be taking suggestions to make it better. I'm no longer limited by the original programming so the sky is the limit.

For those of you using Netscape or Mozilla I'm going to apologize in advance if anything shows up kinda funny as I have not had time yet to make some compatibility changes. The site is also now a little bit more bulky with the thumbnails and CSS I plan on getting that taken care of also so no concerns.

Ok now for some fun stuff! Features! Woot! The new site is modular and thus skinnable. I'll be maintaining the current look for now but we have some graphic artists getting involved soon. User features will include skinnable web styles, Movable/Closable/Minimizable submenus, User Review statistics, support module. Other things you can expect soon are weekly newsletters, special offers, member discounts, and gift certificates. Somewhere down the road (not the immediate future) I want to put in a music sampler section and a archive of lyrics and DVD scripts. We will be putting in a better user review module allowing reviews of products other than DVDs. Cashan is moving the store soon so you can also expect to see a lot more product. Oh and we are also going to be putting in an E-bay module for rare anime items. A place to request to be emailed when out of stock items are back in stock. For all you dropshippers out there we are going to have an API for orders as well.

Thats it for now, I'll be sure to keep you all informed if any major changes happen. Trent

There are a lot of fixes and updates coming to the site tonight. Sorry about the thumbnails on the new products. I don't think Cashan realized that all updates to the system are now realtime changes that don't depend on a news update to show up. Anyways thanks everyone for your input!

Oh and I also wanted to let everyone know that alpha broswing is coming back. I'm redoing the page listing to be easier to use also.

Ok a list of updates

  • Mozilla based browsers should not be having any more problems with the site
  • Alpha Searching is back into effect (I am still working with this because I don't like the way it looks)
  • Completing orders on Mozilla based browsers should now be possible.
  • A lot of formatting changes have happened.


  • If you are using a non-standard browser and are having issues with anything please let me know what broswer andwhat issue you are having. I'm going to reformat the pages display in the catalog once I'm happy with the alpha search.

    Another thing that was brought up was the new items attached to the news updates. I need to talk with Cashan about this but I think we are going to replace this with a weekly newsletter. We want to remove some of the clutter off the site and only show the last 15 items added. Items can also be searched and sorted by date added under the catalog. We may also make a link to a new items only page. I'm starting to also poke around for a SSL key from a trusted provider to get rid of that stupid security message.

    I built a thumbnail generator into the system for Cashan so he can start adding items like mad again. Actually it may be a few days as we are moving the store soon. I'm hoping the weekly newsletter will be in full operation this weekend. I'm also getting a few more graphics on the site and the page and alpha browser finished. After that no updates for about 2 weeks as I am working to change over to the new inventory and order system. Please let me know if you see anything that needs fixing in the meantime. Trent

    Morning folks

    This is my first time updating on the new site and I will try to keep it really to the point. I have 130 emails and climbing piling up all of which are asking roughly the same question, which is "Where is my Order? What is taking so long?" I figure I will try to answer them all at once and get it over with so please bear with me.

    1. We have received an unusually high number of orders in the last two weeks. Don't misunderstand this, We really are grateful to all of our customers. We do, however, have a personnel and logistics problem at the moment. One of our People is out in California.

    2. We are in the process of moving to a bigger store and will be out of touch with the website and USPS shipping for the next two days until they reestablish our phone and DSL lines.

    3. Things have gotten so hectic that we have finally gotten a full-time person to man the store during normal hours as the rest of us have full-time jobs outside of the store. This will help us even out the flow of shipping and handling orders as well as make sure the store is available to customers during reasonably normal hours. He will also be taking on the task of answering emails which it is getting harder for me to do at work as they seem to have a disapproving attitude about outside interests and some of my Co-Workers are snitches.

    Once we have moved in, we'll be doing some extra hours to try and get all of the orders caught up so we can get back to a reasonably normal pace.

    Hope this explains the current situation. As for those with problems other than "where is my Order?", we'll be getting back to you about them shortly.

    Things at the new store location are going swimmingly (I think) and orders are pretty much caught up. Ok now that things have calmed down a bit I wanted to list several bug fixes.

  • We have had "Hacker Safe" come and look for security holes in the website. None found so their logo/certificate now appears on the site (Yay!)

  • Catalog limits issue has been fixed, Max allowed is now 200 and the system won't bug out if left blank (Thanks to Cashan the uber debugger for this one)

  • More fixes for visual issues with third party browsers.

  • Credit Card and Manual Orders now send out an order confirmation email when an order is completed.

  • The cart now clears itself out completely when a transaction has been completed. This will prevent all sorts of errors from occuring if a user trys to refresh the confirmation page after completing an order.


  • We are still working on the Paypal module. The Paypal lock for hentai transactions will be going back up soon. Also the module will be redone to return the customer to a confirmation page after the Paypal transaction itself has gone through.

    The newsletters module is almost done and I'm hoping that inventory piece will be done soon. Among a few other things that is on my list to do is a revamp of the review module (including spellcheck omg!).

    Anyways thats it for now!

    Just saying hello, letting people know I haven't dropped off the face of the planet! So cool it on the emails! Just a quick review up, Onegai Twins, it's a great series, but there were just too many problems that I've noticed on my set which disappointed me. More reviews coming soon! PLUR!

      Message From: CashanFeb 14, 2004 Minimize

       The "Where are my order?" emails have got to stop please. I understand many people's concerns but due to QWEST hosing our phone move the move had a lot more drag on shipping operations that we'd initially believed. We lost our phones for 2 days and our internet service for 5 days. Basically this put us about 6 days behind. We are caught up on the orders through the 6th and if you had something before that then feel free to be concerned, hell, feel free to call.

    Wangfu has made referencing your order history much more accessible as it appears once you are logged in in the login window.. please go there. If you call it's not gonna change anything other than to have a verbal confirmation that that is indeed your order status.

    I'd also like to note that many are shocked that we moved the store three doors down to STE 108. I checked to make sure before writing this but I made this VERY clear in detail on a news post on the 28th warning everyone that it was coming. I'm not sure how many have moved stores / businesses but the rest of you all I can say is that it's nothing like moving your apartment / house. We had to drill holes, lay new infrastructure for our network and even rewire our heater before the first two days were over and that was only to have QWEST tell us that apparently paying 500$ a month for business phone lines / DSL does not make us a priority.

    Some of you will take offense to this shot of reality but it needed to be said. The more "Where are my orders?" emails that we are answering when it's clear online what the status of your order is.. the less time we are spending pulling / labelling / stamping / shipping forementioned order.

    This has been your public service announcement from the owner.

    PS. Most of you have been very kind and sympathetic about the delay and we greatly appreciate that.. it's only the 6 - 10 of you.. and you know who you are.. who have written scathing and insulting emails trying to calling our normally high standrad of information relay to question that have prompted this response. Thanks to the rest of you for your patience.. we hope to be completely caught up by Sunday Evening. I will be pulling an all nighter tonight as far as order pulling and hope to get us up to at least the 9th by start of business tomorrow.

       Enjoy the Silence!

    Thanks go out to the entire user population for your kindess in observing a night of silence for me to get caught up. As of this post the last order I pulled was about halfway through the orders for the 10th and anything before that should have either had it's status change to "Restock" or "Pending Shipment" If your order has not been changed to either of those then I have not gotten to it yet.. though I'll be starting again on the pulls tonight / Sunday morning and we hope to have everything in one status or the other by tomorrow evening. The good news is that at least 95% of orders have been going out without issue and if you have a "Restock" instead of "Pending Shipment" and would like to switch out the item in question or just have a refund check sent with your package please email us.

    Again.. My Thanks.. We had ONE person take offense enough to call up and get their order refunded and the rest took the underlieing thing which was just back off let us breathe and we'll crack out 8 hours on the orders. It went about as I expected and we should be right on with my timeline of getting fully caught up by tomorrow night. Now I've rambled. Thanks! ^_^ It's only the 1% of the customer base that you ever see these rants about, the rest of you rock and are considerate understanding and willing to work with us. Also, we have only TWO emails that are unanswered or not being worked on. So if you have not received a reply.. we may never have gotten the email in the first place.

       Alright, another order update for everyone. We are currently pulled through the 15th as of my writing this. You can check online for the status of your order including which items are the hold up if there is any at all. Pulled - Pending Shipment means that all items have been reserved and it will be packed and shipped shortly. Pulled - Pending Restock means that one or more items have caused a delay in getting the package out and in these events you are always able to email us and get an item changed to another item to expediate the shipping.

    Hello, just wanted to say I'm very sorry for that nasty rudely quote that I had up a few days ago, I know I got some emails saying it wasn't very nice. So I changed it. I hope never to upset anyone ever again!

    Since everybody seems to be offending, well, everybody this year (from the Super Bowl to Conan), I figured now would be a good time to post up a review of Ichi The Killer: The Animation, a disc sure to offended everybody else.

    Morning Everyone

    I have a brief announcement so that we can keep the emails to a minimum and let everyone know we are aware of a situation.

    Turns out that the first disc of Outlaw Star in the current release has a major production flaw and it is currently being reproduced by the production company. Our supplier will be sending out replacement disc one's as soon as they are available, which should be in a week or so.

    I am asking you to hold off sending in the bad ones for replacement until I can get the others here. As soon as I do, I will post another update and let everyone know that they have arrived.

    Those of you who recently ordered the Outlaw Star set now know why they suddenly are a "Pending Restock" item.

    Be assured will we will take care of our customers in this issue, as always.

       Not sure if many of you are actually reading his email on keeping your forum account active but he gave a response address in there OTHER than animeniacsnet@yahoo.com.. please stop replying to there it's causing unecessary clutter when this is something havok is handling himself not the store email.
