    I'm checking it as frequently as I can remember to in case they drop the next set of PTDs.

    I think the initial run of the groupme text worked. Thanks to @disneykins for the initial text (I just went and pulled down the link.) It was all quite exciting to say the least.

    This week may have a high probability of another DSSH release (of the non-PTD variety). I know some are thinking there may be a pattern and I agree... there may be, but I will be checking when I have a moment all week since the broader pattern is mid-month. I cannot see why DSSH would create a pattern. If anyone has insight into why there would be a pattern... please weigh in.

    Also, I wanted to obtain DPF feedback on the texting via GroupMe today. Was the text chatting going on acceptable for everyone or should DPF members move the chatter into the forum once we all click the link to get into the queue? We definitely want to make the GroupMe texting work for everyone, so feedback is appreciated.

    As someone with a phone that is not "smart", receiving more than 123 text messages was a lot.

    I think it was great! Appreciated the notification and I was fine with the subsequent communications. It was convenient for me personally.

    I found it to be very convenient! I use the app and not the text version which was ideal!

    I was able to mute the chat after the initial notification, but the extra texts were a lot since I was at work. Thank you for doing this @TheMickeyMouseRules I didn’t need this particular release but I look forward to others. I’m off Friday so I will be watching like a hawk and will share in the groupme if I see anything posted.

    I liked it, too, although I was in the midst of meetings at work so couldn't do a whole lot. I didn't mind the level of messages, as it let me know things were still active.

    I thought it was great. I went to post the link but it appeared quickly, so I apologize on that. Also, I will need to set up pickups prior .

    The PTDs are dropping for local pick up only. Most of the non-PTDs pins are being released with shipping (as the only option.) Depending on what you want, sometimes DSSH will ship the pins to you.

    While I was fine with the number of texts yesterday (and I certainly joined in also.) On the other hand, I was very happy they did finally stop, since we did post as a rule in the first thread not to bombard the thread with texts. DPF members joined the GroupMe with the idea of receiving the link and probably not much else...

    Would anyone think we could move communication (during the DSSH releases) on DPF using:
    1) this thread or
    2) the PTD thread or
    3) the 2020 pin discussion thread or
    4) start a new thread just to chatter?
    5) or use the GroupMe @starry_solo set up for DPF communication/chatter? General Chat GroupMe?

    Thoughts?

    I would say after posting the link, move the discussion to Li's thread.

    As many have mentioned, I thought it worked well and I didn’t mind the hectic convos and real-time updates. While the release is happening, I think a text thread is much quicker than moving to a forum thread.

    I haven’t checked all of the links you posted, Anne @TheMickeyMouseRules, but if we move to Li’s GroupMe chat (which I think you mentioned?), then even more people might get notifications who might not have originally been interested? But maybe it’s ok since they already expect any kind of chat? Haha

    Edit: ok after thinking about it more, perhaps moving the chat to the general GroupMe is better. Then the link can stay “pinned” as a recent message in this text thread.

    I had somehow unjoined the group, so I missed all the excitement.

    The amount of messages is honestly what prompted me to look, one probably wouldn’t have caught my attention. If the texts were too much I’d also suggest changing your notifications setting to in the app which is less disruptive than a text. But I understand majority rules in this case.

    Oh yea I think I saw a notification that you were removed since you didn’t respond to any messages which I assume you didn’t cuz you didn’t want to spam the group.

    DH is working from home, and he kept asking what was going on with my phone. Luckily, he didn't have any meetings, otherwise I would have had to go upstairs. Turning off the notifications would defeat the purpose of signing up. So yeah, if we could clean this up a bit, that would be helpful. Updates about what pins have sold out is one thing, but the thank yous and updates on people's place in the queue.

    The DPF chatroom is also an option to talk more in real time.

    You assume correctly. :)

    Thanks for letting me know. Going forward I'll check now and then to make sure I'm still connected.

    I’ll probably just leave that group then, just because if the only thing posted is the link once, it doesn’t make it any different from the 2020 pin release thread which also had the link posted once.

    Sorry... the comments about the phone blowing up made me laugh. I'm just so used to my phone blowing up with messages from all kinds of group chats that it just feels so out of the ordinary when it's quiet.

    Let me clarify my vote (if it counts) with this caveat: I think we should change the DSSH rule to allow discussion after posting the link, but if we are keeping the only post link rule, that discussion should go over to Li's string after posting.

    It is clear most DPF members had no issues with the number of texts coming through yesterday (I had no issues either, very much enjoyed it... but trying to be considerate of those at work and in different places than the rest of us.)

    @starry_solo would using the groupme chat you set up be an acceptable use for chatter around a DSSH release? If yes, I will go ahead and join it with the plan to use it during any future DSSH release.

    I hope all our DPF friends stay on the GroupMe DSSH web link notification thread. The more members checking and engaging the faster DPF members will be notified. Teamwork! (and a bit of enabling;))

    ok tbh... it wasn't that bad! the notifications did get me kind of annoyed cuz they would block out notifications from my school about meetings or homework... but I fixed that by turning off notifications and checking the chat every few minutes!
