Shaun does everything related to money and the two stores here, which require frequent updating and adding. I do visuals and new pages, all of which are one-time things. The page is made, and it's done. So it could be argued that Shaun will do more work in the long run, so I need to keep thinking of things to do.

At first I saw it and thought we could buy things using our Critique Points. I was like *gleam inside eyes* and then I figured out we had to use money.

But it's for a good cause

Hurray for the aStore

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

Thanks guys, we appreciate the support! I figure, if you guys are going to buy from Amazon anyway, might as well do so to help us

I'd argue that right now you're doing a lot more than I am because you're doing lots of things that I can't do. I don't know how to fiddle with code, I know very little HTML, CSS, and I know absolutely nothing about PHP. All the little gizmos that make our site great are either ideas you came up with and utilized or ideas I had that you did. So, you are doing more work right now, but perhaps once we get the site in a perfect state with all the features we could imagine on it, then, yeah, perhaps I'll be doing more. I have a lot of plans for the site that I hope we'll be able to do. A lot depend on whether or not we get a lot of members and how much activity we have. But, there are a lot of things I'm hoping to be able to do, hopefully by summer of next year, or sooner if possible.
I'm rambling. But, Andy, you're doing a lot of work, be happy about it. Anything you guys see visually is what he put up, even if it was my idea, or a combination of our ideas, or just his. He's doing so much work to keep this site afloat, and I'm glad to have him working with me. This site wouldn't exist without him...mostly cause I'm too stupid to do forum stuff :S

Just a side note.

Anyone who actually buys from the store, will you please let me know via a PM or here so that I can make sure that Amazon recognizes the sale? I'd really appreciate it. You don't have to give me financial info or anything like that. Just say "I bought this book on such and such day".

Oh, also, Shaun do you think you could explain to me how you would set up an amazon store and all of this...? It might be something I run by Nate on YWS to see what he thinks of it. (Yes! I'm stealing your amazing money making idea.)
