[Olympus/phpBB3] Bertie is back! Get him before he's gone!

Post by SHS` »

The last year or so, phpBB have continued in our long slog in conquering "Olympus", so to celebrate the recent opening of the bug-tracker and the forthcoming Beta1 of "phpBB Olympus", we've decided to release a special edition of Bertie Bear!

There shall only be 100 and you can pre-order them now, though if for some strange reason they are all pre-ordered before the end or March 2006 or before phpBB "Olympus" Beta1 is released (whichever is sooner), we'll make available a further 100 phpBB "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bears.

Hopefully, everyone that wanted to get their furry paws on a Bertie after bearing with us in taking such a long time in developing the next phpBB, shall not be disappointed! ;)

All ready to order? Have a quick read of our FAQ and the PayPal button is right at the very bottom:

All I can say is "WOW". In the just a short 24 hours that "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bear has been available for pre-ordering, pretty much half the expected "lot" of 100 had been sold. Since there is a full 8 days before the end of the month, I've taken the assumption that we will pass the allotted amount so I have decided on putting the further 100 available for those wanting some phpBB Bertie Bear shaped furry goodness! :D

So now there is over 100 still up for grabs though do bear in mind they are going thick and fast. It is first-come-first-serve, so once this complete lot of 200 "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bears are gone, that will be it. In case you've forgotten where the purchase link is, it's right here:

Wooh! You guys & gals managed it! ;) The 100th Bertie was purchased just minutes before the 31st of March ended (the joy of time-zones!)

There are 90-ish remaining phpBB "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bears are available, so get 'em quick before Bertie goes back to his trek up Olympus Mons! :mrgreen:

Right, we've released phpBB2.0.20, though not quite phpBB3 Beta1...

Since a lot of your are patiently waiting for furry goodness, anybody that pre-orders a Bertie Bear before the end of the 16th of April (just 6 days away!), you'll start having your order sent out on the 17th! Why am I doing this? Just another little "thank you" for bearing with us yet again. ;)

Anway, Olympus Bertie Bear looks like he'll be getting about a bit before he goes back to conquering Olympus! ;)

For those of you that have pre-ordered a "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bear, he shall be making his way to you over the next few days. Want proof? How about "Bertie Mons", with Berties piled high ready to be packed and shipped!

Quite an impressive mass of bear-shaped furry goodness don't you think? ;) There probably won't be any left by the time phpBB3 Beta1 comes... so it's a race against the clock if you want to be an owner of a "Conquering Olympus" Bertie Bear!

There's already a discussion thread over at Area51, so feel free to discuss your new furry friend and give the next generation phpBB3 "Olympus" a little whirl at the same time! ;)
