PayPal sent for textad, but no textads yet? August 6, 2002 10:28 PM   Subscribe

Possibly a bug, possibly not:
My PayPal payment for a text ad went through three days ago, yet no text ad in the queue. I say again: my money has left the building.

What gives?

I don't mean to be picky, well yes I do.

This probably would be one of those things best to e-mailed to matt, or at least that's what I would have done first. Seeing as how there's little discussion the community could add.

Since when did I turn into a metacop?

Since now, it seems. I was going to say the same thing, but didn't want to act "that way"

crap, sorry adam. I ok'd your ad last week, but forgot to set the "make live" flag. It's up now, and I quadrupled your impressions.

I quadrupled your impressions

Or maybe MetaTalk was the perfect place for it. Public shaming indeed.

matt, not too long ago, made an adjustment to the quantity one of my textads - simply because i ordered it on a holiday weekend and it was a few days before it went live. he never said anything about it. point being - matt really is a good guy - and i'm amazed at his patience, consistency and overall good nature with regard to the metafilter "enterprise". thanks matt, just thanks for metafilter.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Matt, we love you.

Agreed. Lest anyone think differently, I was referring to how cool it was that the impressions got quadrupled. I wish I could quadruple my impression. Ever since that Head and Shoulders campaign, I've been very conscious of it.

this thread cheered up my very sleepy wednesday morning at work.

Is that the real clavdivs?

We do love you, Matt. You're the bee's knees. :)

clavdivs - you were a big topic of convo at the NY mefi gathering.

i always wanted to take a poll: do people pronounce his name as written or do they call him 'claudius'? me, i alternate.
posted by mlang at 8:08 PM on August 8, 2002

I do both: I read it clav-dius and then instantly reread or resay it clau-dius. Spoken is always claudius, unless someday says "who?", which has never happened since I don't talk to people about metafilter--their eyes get a dull matte finish to them as soon as I bring it up. Their loss. My bad for living in a hick city.

I'm the only one to answer your poll so far--may I have a prize?

I say clavdivs. But a lot of the time, I also pronounce Claudius as clavdivs. I blame it on too much time spent watching I, Claudius in my youth.
