It is really frustrating to see these video card drops end as soon as it starts, presumably due to the miners. Why not limit it to 1 per customer so that everyone in the community can get a chance at it? It'd give loyal customers a chance to buy 1, and make the miners come back to the site again for repeat purchase which is a win in terms of customer retention.
As a gamer (and a hobby miner), I'd be cool with a 1 or 2 card limit per order. I have joined drops with 4 card limits... but I fear that it's not gamers or miners that are the issue here... From what I can tell, people seem to be buying cards and selling them on ebay for twice the price. It's the people that resell them that really burn me up. If you buy the card, use it for something at least. But alas, I missed this drop as well. I think the issue is that the email alert comes in after the drop is over. Maybe we could add text alerts as an option to drops for instant notifications?
It was limited to 2 per person.

Perfect! I think it would be helpful for all of us that miss the drop to know that there were limits set on them. Could you include that prominently in the description of the drop? It might prevent a lot of disgruntled comments from those of us that miss out. Seems like all of the complaining was done unnecessarily today. :)
Will do so in the future. Good suggestion.
Maybe you should base the purchase limit on shipping address. I gauurantee an account limit does nothing to stop mass purchase which in turn are just to markup to $1500+ and resell on eBay or cryptomining.
I was in bed asleep at that time... but I do appreciate the heads up. I think its good that you guys start drops at various times of the day so folks in different parts of the country can have a chance to buy! :)
Why does it burn you up for people to resell them? Some people enjoy play a video game, some people enjoy making money the easy way. I don't understand why it matters who does what with their purchase to anyone.
