So according to Gamersenexus who doesnt spew BS like many sites we see

Regarding 3080 review date (which i believe is today woohoo)

Quote:
The date was moved because of global shipping delays causing some other regions (outside North America) to receive cards late for reviewers; in effort to keep it fair between reviewers around the world, NVIDIA pushed its review embargo date back.
I think there is a good deal of truth in that one.

So I like to now and then, Rarely though, Shop on OCUK for various bits and pieces, I've also got an account on their forum that I've had since 2007 which gives me free DPD shipping on anything over £50, Went to log into it today as it also has a very useful members market place that you can buy and sell, You have to be a member for at least a year though with 1000+ posts just to make sure you're not a scammer.

Anyway I go to login, Wrong password, Recheck my password, Wrong password, Click on the forgot password link, Password link never comes through, I send a message to the forum mods explaining this, Nothing, I wait 48 hours, Send another, Nothing, I also send a message to them over Facebook, The message is seen but I get no reply, I also go to login to my "Trust" which is your seller information, Rating etc... password invalid, I checked post history, Nothing has changed, This has happened before but various people with too much power on those forums like to mess around with peoples accounts for whatever reason they make up in their heads.

This brings me to this point, Over moderation and the god complex that some mods have is getting a little too much on multiple forums, So many forums have mods that have this "I am in charge" mindset, Toxic, So glad OC3D has human mods.

Firstly.

Your buying account will probably use a different email address to the forum. Mine does. My login for trust is the same as my login for buying ETC. It uses an email address I have had for 10 years. One I rarely even check let alone bother with.

However when buying I have to use that email, or lose all of my privs (MM, free shipping on anything etc).

If you ever have an issue with OCUK mate go here -



Don't send a web note, don't go on Facebook etc. There's no point even phoning because their service in that area is sodding awesome.

Funny you posted today because I ordered something that wasn't in stock. The res was, but not the HDD. Then I didn't know why it hadn't shipped because I didn't check that old email account etc. However, I went on the forum and asked them to refund the HDD which brought the order down to £38 for the res and they sent it DPD.

Which brings me back to this. Are you certain that the email you use for the shop is the one you are sending emails to? not your forum account, the actual shop email address?

Because I had the same issue. I'm like WTF why are these emails not arriving and then the penny dropped.

My forum and store emails are the exact same, Even the exact same passwords, This has happened twice over the last few years and always turned out to be something a mod fiddled with on the back end.
