Checkin' in to see where the discussion is going.
Wanted to take a moment to thank Mark Walk for being so on top of fan questions and comments. I know we all appreciate it and I'm sure we know it's tiring for you amidst all this...frustrating for ohGr can't even begin to describe it. Oh, hey 'Pledge', if you're monitoring, one of my orders is still in limbo, the one that you even took my add'l money to upgrade to signed, yeah, I'd like us all to see that fulfilled ya know, when you set things right with the band. I don't want a refund - I want Pledge to own up. Godspeed with your new people on board, turn it around, it's a platform we all would like to thrive.

Really gutted really wanted the signed lyric book for Tricks... OhGr is my hero... I have just been struggling recently because I got hit by a car, and could only afford it now. And now it's SOLD OUT!!!... me being an idiot... if anyone has a spare please let me know.

Dan. The book is marked sold out because Pledge has mismanaged funds,
We are looking at some different options.
If you purchased a product from the ohGr pledge store you would be on our mailing list.
If not, are you in the ohGr Facebook group ?

Thanks to the ohGr crew for the email blast. I only hope that everybody (honestly, I'm pretty confident already does ;-) understand(s) the pain of dealing with a zukerberg-break-things-fail-fast mentality (that, case in point, obviously has yuuuuuge weaknesses). I know (for myself) that communication is key and can cut a ton of slack - so thank you!

The last update is gone entirely. Ohgr just sent an email saying that they are able to post any new updates. Hopefully it's just a glitch... a really convenient glitch....

I reported the issue to pledge. But emails work

JoAnna DellRuiz commented

It's better by email anyway since my phone alerts me. I really hope they aren't blocking you guys from posting. That would be really messed up to do on top of all this other crap they're pulling.

It’s dsicribed as a glitch.

There are some new people on board with pledge. Im cautiously hopeful they can solve the issues, and restore the platforms reputation.

Here's to hoping it works out for everyone involved!

Any chance there will be a reprint of the CD? I would love to have a physical version. It seems like there are some problems with PledgeMusic though. I would buy it wherever it was available! Thanks for making such a great album.

Mark Walk commented

Yes. We had plans for repressing everything.
We are just working out a way to do it since Pledge has spent our money on their business expansion..

OhGr Fan commented

So sorry to hear that. :( The album is great, and I am sure things will work out.

I recieved the T-shirt today. Still waiting on vinyl and lyric book. Just thought I would let you all know. I will continue to wait for other items until I hear otherwise. Thanks Mark for the update!!

Thanks for letting us know that..

We will be double checking every order after we get through this mess

May have been previously posted, but nevertheless an interesting read regarding PledgeMusic's delay in payments. This was back in mid-2018 and does not look like they are back on track - I would be nervous doing any business with these folks. Good luck with everything Mark.

Hey Pete.

Yes the issues started right before the end of our project, and continues today.

We are taking action behind the scenes.

It’s complicated, and we will be sharing all our information and future plans shortly.

Mark Walk commented

Where ?

Bryan Jackson

Bryan Jackson commented

The dates showed up at the bottom of each item in the "My Orders" page. Today (1/18/19) I received the items that were marked in the Orders page with a date but I still have a few things to go.

Thanks for keeping up on this, the items I've received look great and I'm excited to see how the others turned out!

Mark Walk commented

No this is a great idea, and we have every intention of doing this

However, we have felt that it’s unethical for us to sell any new product until we resolve issues wity people who pledged.

Also, not everyone uunderstands the situation we exointered with pledge.

Its not hard to imagine frustration on the part of a customer who sees a new store, while waiting for a book or record from Pledge.

Momentarily Paralyzed

I look forward to seeing what shape it takes and appreciate your thoughtful approach. I'm also waiting on the book and while the wait has been excessive, I also understand the situation and remain patient. Good luck.

I may be ignorant here or just daydreaming, but have you guys (Mark, Ogre) have considered setting up an ohGr Bandcamp page? Maybe throw up some remixes or rarities? I know I would gladly pay more than the asking price for such gems. I know they take 15% of digital sales, but offer more artist control. Should I wake up now?
