    I got a new business-dedicated number now instead of my personal phone number, but I have like 1,000 business cards with the old number on xD

    A friend and I just placed an order for a new Canterlot Nights deck and one of the collectors tins each, so we're super excited for when those release.

    We had a couple of comments and observations about the new site, should I post them here or e-mail them in?

    Righto then, just a few relatively minor things, although the last point could potentially have been an issue.

    - The Luna Canterlot Nights deck seems to have a mistake in the item description, in that it is listed as being a Celestia deck. I'm assuming it originally copied from the Celestia deck description to save time, but switching 'Celestia' for 'Luna' was overlooked.

    - We felt that the search box along the top could possibly have been in a colour that wasn't the same as the page itself, so it stood out a little more and was easier to find with a cursory glance, maybe a grey backing for the box might work or a discrete border for it. That's just a very minor opinion on our part though regarding accessibility.

    - Lastly, when we both checked out and paid via Paypal, we were redirected to Paypal as the site said, but after payment was completed, we were returned to the very same screen redirection screen with the button to do it manually. Now it didn't redirect us again, but my friend wasn't entirely sure if the payment had completed or not as a result of this. I assumed it had and we had the Paypal receipts to confirm it, but I think it could've been an issue for someone less wary which may have lead to double payment. Not sure if this was just something we both happened to run into, or it's an outcome that can be reproduced, but it may be worth looking into it and setting up a post-transaction screen to make it clear everything is sorted (if there isn't one already).

    Really loving the site besides those points though, and I'll be glad to return when I'm in need of future miniature equine swag.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll fix the CN deck right now. As for the box, I'll see if I can tinker with the HTML code. I'll be contacting support today in order to find out why customers are not being redirected to a successful payment page.

    I should note I've had double-payments in the past that have been refunded ^w^

    EDIT - This has now been fixed. Customers are taken to a successful payment page after placing an order.

    With the recent push backs on releases by Enterplay, would it be possible to change our Canterlot Nights orders to be collected at London MCM? I'm not sure if Mareplay has a stall there this time around or not, or if collecting orders somewhere like that is a possibility. Thanks for your time.
