I'm in the same boat you are, just wondering about that myself.

I think many staff are still comatose from it being post-con. They may no longer be doing daily email check and may be moving to weekly checking. (I am totally guessing on how often email reading staff check email and may be wrong.)

I'd suggest going to typical business delay of 7-10 business days before getting antsy. The may be just collecting info for now and will send a mass mailing once they think they've been contacted by most of people who care enough to do so. For now just put the shirts in a place you won't lose them in case they need the messed up shirts back. I know the urge to re-email may be high, but just adding more stuff to an inbox that might have alot of stuff in it isn't always the best option.

Extended patience can be hard, I totally understand. ;_;

I got a staff shirt...and they did the same thing :x

I dunno personally what the status is on refunding the shirts. As Zrana said, many of the staff who would be in touch with the company who printed them, are still comatose or MIA for the time. I'll add my finger to the poking though, and see if I can get some response.

Yea, I haven't heard anything either and I sent my e-mail back when they first said to e-mail them with the issue. I've got both my fiance's and my shirt sitting in our room and it depresses me to look at 'em. :(

Just out of curiosity, should I e-mail them? I asked earlier, but got no response. I know everyone is working to solve the problem and I don't want to annoy them more if I send them an e-mail stating the problem. If someone could let me know if I should just watch the thread for now and wait to see what is said or if I should just go ahead and e-mail them, that would be wonderful -^__^- Thank you.

Just hammering out the final word on what is going to happen, and then it should be posted, here, and hopefully on the website as well.

I recommend, that if you still have the shirt, to hold onto it for now. If you've already tossed it or given it away, no big, but if you haven't, keep it somewhere for the time being.

Thanks!

And I'm guessing the same thing goes for those of us with the black Youmacon 2010 sweatshirts that the decal is fading/peeling off of? We just email the company, right?

I didn't get a shirt at all and I am pretty pissed off. Who do I contact? I still have my free shirt slip.

Hey, I think it would be awesome if you guys would maybe post some t-shirts and sweatshirts and stuff up for sale on your website. I really wanted to buy one this year, but when I went to the table, you were all sold out. :<

However, when I looked at mine, not thinking anything was different, I noticed that it does not have YoumaCon 2010 written anywhere on the shirt.

Again, we are working on getting things worked out.

I think I may have been at fault for selling the hoodie without the Youmacon 2010 on it. I didn't notice any were missing it at first, but after I did, Vessa told me to pull them. There may have been 2 or three like that... or more. I'm pretty sure I missed one or two being pulled. Sorry. :oops:

It's okay, I figured it was an accident, lol. I was just wondering if they were supposed to have the year on them or not, lol.

Just in case, I replied to the e-mail that was sent to us about placing our shirt sizes, but since I am not sure if you can reply to that e-mail, I was wondering if anyone knew if they're going to be replacing the sweatshirts too? of just the t-shirts? I am only asking this because I paid the $12 difference when I got mine (The free pass + $12 = Sweatshirt, lol). Just wondering. If not, the t-shirt is perfectly fine with me, I just thought I would ask and see.

If the reply to the e-mail makes it through, then I apologize for writing it here.

Thank you all so much for your help -^__^-

So...what exactly is going on with t-shirt replacements? I sent an e-mail a while ago and never heard anything back. And my shirt is a mess; it really sucks. :/ Are we supposed to get an e-mail back from them?

I agree. Every time i go into the dealers room it's always sold out, and i paid $100 just for the platinum too. So I can get free food, gaming, and t-shirt. I couldn't get a t-shirt. kinda pissed off about it.

Have we heard anything about the replacement shirts? I know the e-mail I received at the end of last year mentioned that we would hear something in January. Anything yet? :?
