    Sorry if come across as a cheapskate, I do frequent this forum and have done for a few years, as a lurker obviously, but not so much the gear forum as I have very limited funds for gear, hence my disappointment in missing out on this deal. All the power to you guys for getting it happening with Slate and enjoy the plug. Must be nice when this sorta money is considered 'trivial'. Shame no doubt someone will have their way with it real soon, I support the developers. My $.02Aud

    To quite a lot of us here this sort of money is in no way considered 'trivial'. If it was, we wouldn't have requested a group buy. If you had followed the original thead you would see a lot of people had to make careful considerations as to whether they could invest in this group buy or not. And now some of the ones who were late in figuring out whether they could save enough money to join or not won't be able to because you broke the rules and posted about it at Gearslutz.

    can I be put on the "has an ilok but still wants another one" list as well? I want to get one for my friend for his birthday.

    edit: so wait, there's no way to confirm how many people are actually going to follow through before our cards are charged?

    Thanks for your appreciation of my lame sense of humor. Trying to keep this short: I used to work more than full time at a CD plant. I did all of their mastering and top level QC in the afternoon/evening, and then switched to relief operator, actually running the injection moulders, until my buddy came in to take over for the graveyard shift.

    He's a great guitar player, and has had a relatively well known metal band for a long time. He introduced me to a lot of excellent music and people like Sneap, etc. I used to kid him about the Tull thing, since I'm a longtime prog fan (ducking). He moved on to a better job and I eventually got laid off as the music industry went down the tubes.

    Okay, here's how my joke finally ties back into my problem. I'm still unemployed and my benefits and extensions have run out, so I really can't afford this even at $150. But, I wanted it bad enough that I thought I'd sign up after it hit 60. So, I did. Well, then gooberhead had to spoil it. I guess I'm just worried that there's not enough pad to insure the best price.

    I know that I don't have any authority on this, but dear mister Slate; Would it be possible for the acknowledged regulars like Trevoire520, iHate, lolzgreg and possibly some others who returned just to see they missed the group buy, to sign up till the original deadline of September 1?

    I have an Ilok. It pisses me off to carry this thing whenever I need a plugin, but whatever. I've got it :)

    For what it's worth I sincerely apologize for ruining your GB, I had never heard of a 'private' group buy and simply scanned the prices and jumped to see where it was at, oblivious to the rules. Regardless of some of the arguments raised over at the purgatory called gearslutz I do see the valid point of such a deal here and hope you all get and enjoy the plug.

    ...and that is why it was mainly meant for the regulars.

    Yeah I was planning on jumping in today... Kind of a bummer. I paid full price for SSD PLATINUM a couple years ago, and I rarely ever touch it :lol:

    What if there was at least a reserve list, so that if someone bails, their slot could be filled a regular. That could be based on sign-up order, number of posts, registration date, etc. This would also help insure the best price for everyone by keeping it over 60... just an idea.
