That's a great idea.

Heh, ain't that the truth! But then I have seen it get pretty deep over in IMO.

You know, there's still one thing about this "out of stock" business that bugs me -- you can't even get into the store to buy ONE thing; you just get the "out of stock" message and that's it. Certainly they can't run out of everything. I think the programming for this feature needs to be changed. I'd just as soon eliminate it and let everybody buy as much as they want, but if they want to limit the items sold, then there should be a separate limit and a separate out of stock status for each item. Then if you went to buy somebody something and the store was out of stock on that item, you'd be able to choose somethiing else instead. That would be more like real life which is the only rationale I can think of for having this limitation anyway.

I agree, but the problem is that the designer didn't conceive it that way. For a long time, vPlaza was "dead", meaning not updated at all. At least we can add gifts now.

I can't believe how many cows you guys have!!!

Hope you've had a good play.....

Can we have a dancing cow as a smilie? Or do we have one?

Can't vBulletin code be modified? phpBB forum code can be modified to add/change features.

You're asking a computer idiot that question! The store is now being replenished at frequent intervals, so I assume one of the administrators has already changed the settings. There usually isn't a problem, but this temporary "cow craze" has overtaxed vPlaza.

You could upload it to a photo host and insert it into a post:

I think I really started something! The cow was kind of an afterthought - I just wanted some cat gifts!

I usually come on site early to buy the gifts I wanted to give the previous day.
Planning is the key.

The gift shop is now restocked and open for business!

And no, I didn't purchase a dancing cow - even though I'm from the dairy state! (shame on me..) I'm just more partial to cats!

~KK~
