Any suggestions about how to get this back on track?
Unfortunately not.

I do think we should have a quiet word with shuddle about his behaviour. He appears to have done this or something very similar in just about every chain he's joined over the last couple of days.

I know things have been rather confused with the sudden rush before the end, but he has been repeatedly told how to find the last person. I did it myself more than once.

He just doesn't seem to have taken any notice

Fortunately it's not as urgent as the backlist bundles.

I got the same impression. He jumped in on one with me and it was obvious, at least to me, that there were several people between me and the end of the list. I got the impression he was just PMing random people on the thread saying "Please send me a code".

I know it can be a little confusing the first time or two through but it isn't exactly rocket science and when you have people explaining things to you.

Well, let's just say that I agree.

shuddle then jumped in without looking and PMd jbcohen
then dcalder PMd shuddle
then I tried to get back in
then jbcohen mistakenly sent the code to shuddle

And from there it looks like it's gone nowhere. Seeing as shuddle can't seem to figure out how the system works, I don't even know if they know how to wait for a code from the next person and enter it to get a gift code. I'm really concerned that this thread may've just died with shuddle.

Shuddle if, you're out there, you broke line and you need to send the gift code to hwlester so that we can get back on track from where you tangled things up. Also, please look at the instructions for how these work so that you don't continue to mess things up for others.

Thanks.

I just PMd shuddle to try and get things going again but I don't have a good feeling about it for some reason...

jbcohen PM'd me the code and it had not yet been used, so I redeemed it and sent the new code to bfollowell. We are back on track (based on bfollowell's list):

Hey, great news to wake up to guys. I'm logging onto my email now and will get this one moving on. Hopefully, the rest of you will see a gift code sometime today.

And if everyone else wanted to skip shuddle completely, it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit.

I have to agree with you there. That might seem a bit unfair to some people but he's got no one to blame for this but himself.

I've just posted in the Jan 2013 thread suggesting they skip him and come back if he resurfaces again, in order to get the chain restarted as he seems to have done the exact same thing there.

Thanks, Howlingwolf, it seems I got the wrong end of the chain!

PM sent to dadalo.

[Edit:] Seems dadalo doesn't have the code...
