    That’s a good point. Folks can always opt out of the notifications once they see what is going on and opt back in later so they are ready for the next release. Similar to others, it was the fact that there were multiple notices that got my attention so one single notice wouldn’t be as helpful to me. FWIW, all the communications were pretty much done after about an hour. So it was pretty isolated around the event.

    Okay, so this might be another option.

    Perhaps we just see how the next release drop works out with the notification thread? Perhaps using a combo of slightly less messages and turning off notifications? Let's just see how it goes.

    What times have they been coming out? I remember someone posted, but I don't remember the times.

    1) Monday 7/13 @9:06am
    2) Friday 8/14 @10:17am
    3) Tuesday 9/15 @11:44am

    If there is a pattern the drop will happen 10/16 in the noon hour PT. ...Not sure if the hour of release is also a pattern? I will be interrupting myself all day to check as much as possible. :)

    Yes, that's fine.

    Although, I think that maybe every 15 minutes or so, someone might want to copy & paste the link into the DSSH Surprise Release chat too, just in case someone misses it the first time :)

    So how many people are hanging out on DSSH's Facebook page?

    Although, with all the talk of there being a pattern, I assume they will have noticed and will break the pattern. Especially, since I'm paying attention.

    I was, but now I have to pick up my kids. So prepare for a drop the moment I get behind the wheel.

    Yes, I alternate between:
    1) its going to happen per the pattern
    2) no way its going to happen per the pattern

    But refreshing anyway.

    8 minutes to go...

    Does a Friday surprise drop seem like an unlikely day for DSSH to do another drop?

    It's not a surprise if everyone knows it's coming.

    I’ve been checking at least every 3 minutes. I’m so mad I missed the last PTDs all because I drove somewhere to lunch for about 6 minutes.
    I’m just waiting for a Empire Strikes Back 40th anniversary release. Hope there’s a marquee

    I think once it’s 2 pm I’m going to stop refreshing.

    I’m wondering is it because of the PTD pick ups that they don’t have enough staff to take care of an online release/answer any phone calls about the release/address IT issues?

    Yes, if you stop at 2:00... the release will happen at 2:01. Hahaha

    Seriously though... I do agree its getting more and more unlikely the drop will happen today.

    I don’t blame them the employees. It’s Friday.

    You know, it’s been so long, I’ve forgotten how much I look forward to a new flier getting posted showing all the new releases. I like surprises, but I also like building up the anticipation and looking forward to a release with a set date.

    The stress of getting to the alley and checked in on time and then pulling a number from the drum is much less than the stress of having a surprise drop looming over us that could fall at any time and contain anything (except the odd pin preview teaser).

    The teaser was creating a perceived pattern for a surprise release. I fell victim to this pattern. I still feel a pin drop is coming very soon.
