Is there still no update on this? I can't believe that it's been about 8 months since the con and I sent and email and never heard a response. This shirt was the only souvenir I bought at the entire con and I'd really like to wear it... Is anyone even still checking this thread that could do something about this? :( I'm really upset.

I'm not sure, i keep checking back weekly for a response but i think the mods and everyone are busy preparing for this years con, kinda tempted to message one of them to let them know that we still want a response.

Well with the youmacon t shirts( I have a 2009, im sure the 2010 were made similar)
the image on the tee is vinyl, and it will tend to crack if its pulled. Happens with any vinyl, even ones you buy from the store.
best thing you can do to reduce cracks/breakage i the shirts is to wash it inside out OR wash it by hand. ( i have some knowledge on this since i worked ina shirt printing factory for some months and i've work w/ vinyl many times)

Nope, I still haven't heard anything either and honestly it's starting to get extremely annoying. I check back here periodically but never see a single thing. It's honestly making me think hard if I truly want to come this year. :(

Okay, seriously, do you intend to do ANYTHING for all of us that are out money because of your shoddy shirts? If we're crap outta luck, could you at least tell us that we are, instead of ignoring us for the past almost nine months?

Quoting Ngsilver here:
ngsilver wrote:As for the t-shirt issue. I know this year we are fixing the problems of last year, namely changing printers, but when and what will be done I still don't know and haven't been able to get anything out. This is something that requires upper management, and so far I have not heard anything from them despite my (and others) attempts to get an answer. So unfortunately all I can say is stay tuned and hopefully we'll have an announcement for you, preferably before the con.

I have heard a few ideas being thrown around. Many of which for most will require some proof that you had bought a shirt last year (platinum are a different beast as we know who you are), be that a receipt or your damaged shirt or ect. and possibly a trade at-con. I can't say this is exactly how this will happen, but at least it's something.

As soon as I learn anything else I'll let you know.


Believe me, their are several of us staff that are getting just as frustrated over this as all of you, and have been asking on it since the issue was brought to our attention.
This is my normal voice.

Please, please, don't make me use the mod voice.

Face it...honestly I think all of us got screwed. It's been almost a year and all we ever get is, "Were still working on it." Thanks, but me and my fiance won't be attending Youmacon this year at all. Will be going to other cons instead.

Perhaps its time for attendees and some of the staff here to start bugging Morgan again maybe? I mean at this point, there should be some sort of general idea of what plans to be done. If there are fellow staff started to get annoyed about it, then perhaps these staffers should be putting pressure on the one dealing with the issue, and explain that 'Hey you got a boatload of pissed off people who want answers now, and are probably not far from coming and stabbing you with pitchforks and torches' pissed...so perhaps you need to decide what the deal is going to be for people on this issue.

Not to mention it just looks kinda bad in general for the con when you have something like this unresolved for this long and people are getting angry...

I'm just upset because there's a 99.9% chance I won't be at Youma this year because I'm moving out of state and student teaching, so I can't do an at-con trade. This shirt is the only souvenir I bought at the con. Whenever this gets figured out though, I still have my shirt...so maybe I could mail it in and get a replacement mailed back to me? This just really sucks...

Maybe whoever got a bad shirt last year should just bring their shirt to Youmacon and can trade it in for a free 2011 shirt? That way you can get your money's worth back, at least, and youma doesn't have to reorder all the 2010 shirts?

I'm sure if they see the shirt damage at the booth, it would be sufficient enough to proove you can get a new one. But you'd probably have to turn in the old shirt so people don't go getting like 10 free tshirts.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

This is mad unfortunate, I'm kinda fence sitting telling people not to buy youmacon shirts this year... I'm sure they probably fixed the issue, but they sure as heck haven't said anything about it.

Good to see we still have yet to hear anything for those that got the defective shirts.... :evil:
