The location for the cable is at PORCH, which I don't know what it means, but I think it means 'in front of the house'. The tracking site (ups.com) doesn't give the specific address of where it was shipped, but rather only the name of the city where it was shipped to.

I'm pretty sure I didn't input the wrong address, since I bought the other stuffs (which I already received) in the same run.

In any case, since you said that you lost it for '2 months' and complain for '4 times', does that mean newegg doesn't reply if the Order Status mentions that the package is already "successfully" delivered?
Oh no no no. I meant this for another site. Not newegg. All my business i've done with newegg, it's been quite good so far. Well... if you really want to know here it goes. I emailed them the first time, and told me to send them my Order ID, i did that. They emailed me back saying it was sent and it's up to the shipping company responsibilty to ensure it gets delivered, so I checked the status of it from start to end, saying it was delivered. I searched around the house asked my brother and sisters if they found/ seen a package with my name on it. My dad eventually said, "oh, i forgot, here's a package for you ***", having kept it in his truck for 2 freaking months. yup I have a 3 letter name ^^. Of course I didn't sent them an apology email, it would have been useless and I think it would've been more of a hassle for them anyway.

That aside...

For UPS, that's regular, a specific address for the cities doesn't matter. I'm more interested in the confirmed address, aka your house. Now newegg delivers the items in their original boxes with a bunch of stickers for their own tracking and merchandising purposes, correct?

And if not, then it would in a big cardboard box, which I don't think newegg does. Since that cable you bought is just a "generic" cable i'm not sure if it would come with it's own box and mostly would come in a shrink wrap or a simple plastic bag that's been heat sealed or stapled.

After rereading your response many many times. I think the shipping company may have just simply forgot it, but I can't be sure here because they usually have a checklist of sent items. Or simply the person who received/got the mail placed and misplaced the item of yours.

I personally think the someone misplaced it.

--another question

When ya guys/gals are using extractions/renders for sig making and walpaper making or what ever you may use it for, do you clean them up before you use them? Cause i've been cleaning mine since about 3 or 4 extractions ago and I wonder if anyone even care for the extra work I or others may do to improve to them. Cause I know cleaning them, about 90%+ free of jpeg artifacts without any filtering takes me about 75% longer than w/o it.

I never do... I mostly collect high res scans. So i downsize them till it looks acceptable to the eye and leave it at that. Or i just look for scans that are such high quality that there is no need to downsize it. Of course there are some exceptions. But that is the rule i go by for myself.

Well, it seems that they actually already sent it and the whole situation was simply me unable to find it. Anyway, today after I came home from school, following your advice I checked around the house and discovered it behind the bush in front of the house. The cable comes in with a small box, but it was put inside a really big plastic bag. The bush conveniently hid the box, so when I only saw the piece of plastic bag, I thought it was some kind of trash. In any case, sorry for the trouble and for making you write such a long reply...

I guess I won't send an apology email to newegg, either.

They hid your package in a bush? The delivery guys are getting more and more creative by the day!

I kid, I kid.

Hahaha ^^, that silly delivery boy ^^. I'm glad you found it. I told you, usually the package delivery company don't make mistakes due to a checklist they usually go by.

I only say this because, I wonder if the extra minute work I and others do are actually appreciated

To tell you truth, I don't think i've seen a single extraction that has been filtered of annoying jpeg before. I feel alone in this world again >.<

Well the difference is certainly noticable in most cases. I am personally too lazy to clean up the stocks before using them so instead just a method of "blind blending" (ie smudge) instead

Though by cleaning the stocks, you are getting more practice at using the pen tool

hahaha ^^. I think i'm plenty experienced with the pen tool (I think) , lol ^^. The smudge tool is what I use for cleaning, since I think there's really only a few ways to clean them. Clone tool = failure, Smudge at 50%-75% is the best since after than strength you drag too much of the unwanted pixels with you. The blur is ok at times, but never strong enough even at 100%. The brush is ok too, altering the opacity.

Yes, but try not to do it through PM.

Instead, check out places like Fan Creations <-- (request threads for both avie and siggies are stickies there). Lots of personal threads there focus on signatures and avies too.

You can also check the many avie and signature threads found in anime specific forums (i.e: the Clannad section)

Please do Not place request for making specific signatures in those threads, unless it's explicitly specified in the first post that you can; at most you should ask (in the thread) if it's ok, before posting a list of instructions. Some people find it annoying if you give them chores/solicit them in those threads.

(to clarify, asking to use an existing signature/avatar is a diffrent matter)

Hah, don't be so modest. If ANYONE'S work is experimental, it's MINE. I haven't even figured out how to put borders on rounded edges yet. If that's even possible.

Speaking of making borders, can anyone direct me to a tutorial post for making different kinds of border? Thanks.

Oh yes, when I mentioned other people's thread there, I intended for him to check the already existing works in the galleries.

This isn't for this forum, but for another one in which I cannot seem to get help from. It's hongfire.

On that site, for about a month or 2 now, many many of my threads in which I have not visited, they are being marked as "read" even though I know i have not visited that particular thread. Now it isn't life threatening but it is bothersome, and i've been wondering how to reset the settings or fix this issue. I've check my User CP and resetted/defaulted all of the settings but that didn't do anything for my sake.

This thread is not here to provide support for other forums, so if you have further questions after my reply, please find an alternative method and location in which to ask them.

That said, threads being marked as "read" automatically has long been a "feature" of vBulletin. Although they use "vBulletin 3.6.8", they may not have enabled the new thread marking method*, introduced in ~v3.5, that you will be used to here. Our FAQ page on Automatic Thread/Forum Read Marking Mode might also help explain the differences.

It means the rep-er is unable to influence your reputation at the time of given rep.
