Habe gerade eine Mitteilung von www.whiskyauction.com bekommen, wonach man jetzt auch Rum, Cognac und Armagnac einliefern kann. Bin gespannt, ob es dann bei der nächsten Auktion Mitte Oktober schon losgeht.

Nö. “Degraded performance post release”

Edit: Aber immerhin haben sie im neuen Release die Location Icons in die Übersicht gepackt.

Edit2: Seite ist wieder erreichbar, immernoch sau-langsam und die Icons sind wieder weg. Sieht nach roll-back aus. Und das alles am letzten Tag der September-Auktion. Bravo!

Für die neue Webseite die Auktionsgebühren zu erhöhen ist schon bisschen nen „Stretch“ :rofl::rofl:

Looks like a massive fail for now. Wonder if it will take them hours or days to fix it, and if they will postpone auction end till then.

Ich verstehe es so, dass die Seite zum nächsten Freitag wieder zurückgesetzt wird und die Auktion wieder von neuen beginnt…

As many of you are aware, we had been looking forward to sharing new website developments that launched earlier this month, however, we have experienced significant issues.

This new website has been a significant undertaking and is a huge update. We want to make sure that the functionality that you know and love from our site is enhanced by the new features, but we realise that despite a huge effort from the development team, we haven’t fixed these satisfactorily and as such we’ll need to regretfully cancel the current auction.

We will be restarting this on the previous platform from Friday 22nd September – Monday 2nd October, which will provide a more stable experience for all users.

We completely understand your frustrations, and we regret that this is your first experience with the new site. We also greatly appreciate all of your feedback, continued support and patience whilst our development team have worked unbelievably hard over the last week to try and eradicate these difficulties.

We will keep you updated as progress continues on our new website development, and will reach out to many of you for your feedback and participation in future website testing.

We thank you again for your understanding and patience as we have navigated the last week and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this has caused. As a reminder, if you need to contact us, our opening hours are 10am to 5pm (GMT) Monday to Saturday and you can reach us via email at info@rumauctioneer.com.

Sincerely,
The Rum Auctioneer team

Schnell gepfuscht mal wieder. Da war mal wieder ein Fantast am Werk. Hatte das mal aus früherer Zeit so in Erinnerung, dass man das Zeug erstmal in Ruhe testet. Aber vermutlich war die Deadline dann doch wichtiger und siehe da ging wohl der Schuss in die Hose .
Zeugt echt von Professionalität.
:wink:

Auch schön: bei jedem Pups bekommt man ne Mail, wenn die ganze Auktion abgeblasen wird … nix.
