People need to get off the site or she can't stock!! She just sent another plea. The site is running to slow for her to do anything b/c of all the shoppers!

ETA: Did she stock or not? I'm confused?

This is so dissappointing and such a waste of time! I wish she had a wait list-I would rather wait to get her product than to never get one and spend waste all my time getting all upset! Maybe she will create one. I am done. I just got to the cover page, and there are only small and xl categories-who knows when the med category will come up, and there are 159 shoppers.

What's with that attitude?? It's a diaper cover. It's not like you are on a transplant list and a kidney just became available!

it's not going to happen....especially when people come back telling us what they see/get. I've been refreshing every 5-10 min or so and still get nothing

I think a wait list and ebay would be good. This has got to be really annoying for Maria, too.

it's easy to lose perspective when you want something....i always freak out during and then my cheeks redden a little after. But i think the whole "it's just a diaper" thing has come up before and it's not a very welcome comment.

I had that darn gorgeous periwinkle cover in my cart and on the checkout 2 times before and won't get through.

this is too crazy.
it's not fair to anyone, including Maria.

i think she got some up... people are posting that they got smalls and that there are smalls and xlgs listed. so maybe she was able to get a few up in the past 90 mins...

this is insane. my dh thinks i'm nuts. oh and he wants me to buy a sewing machine to make wool covers LOL i WISH i could sew, then i wouldn't be doing this!

Okay, I sent this to the group too, and I will say it here:

let's all just agree to log off for one 1/2 hour. Maria needs to get this up. What a headache. She HAS to get it up-it's her business. We are just refershing for kicks and covers. Let's give her that time ladies. This has to be frustrating for her and her fam. She does not need to stay up for hours fighting the numbers. I am off now. I will check back later. Let's all follow suit...

my dh says the same thing...he's serious too. But i always try to explain to him how much effort these WAHMS put into their work and how little the make in the long run. It truly is supplemental. My dh sees 26.00 per cover and is like...20 covers a stocking is 520.00, if you stock 2x a month...yadda yadda. hello - you gotta buy the materials.

I wonder if she knows how to close the site to restock?

That would be a lot easier on her.

Well, some of those people might not be on MDC so they are still on because they did not get the message.

Honestly, it is alot to ask for people to log off. Think about all the lurkers here... there are not 127 people who have posted in this thread. I doubt the lurkers care a ton about what *we* all get. The kind people log off and lose out - the not so kind people stay on and snatch all the covers. If you want to lose everything, then log off, but I think it is expecting entirely too much to ask people here to log off when that means it is easier for others to snatch what they have been waiting all day for.

I have said it before and I will say it again. Had it not been posted to the boards, things would be going a lot differently! People who would not have cared before suddenly NEED a Kiwi if only to see what they hype is about! I mean, am I crazy in thinking this???

Off to feed my family some yummy dinner. Have fun girls.
