      I can navigate to all the pages now, but I have not tried actually building a flip book. I assume that works too.
      Now, all I need is an explanation for how to track the package with the order number you sent me.

      Ok Guys, Please try again. Our web host did a little repair work...

      Wow. I guess our site has a database error. Sorry I doubted you guys!
      It's weird. Some people see the pages and some don't.

      THANK YOU!
      We will fix it ASAP!

      hi, I've gotten two emails about the Steampunk flipitbook, asking for additional info. Both links on each email take me to a "404" error page. I'd love to give you my additional info - but how?

      Justin Butler on is the only link that works

      None of the links on the site work (about, build, share, community, news) except for the link to the store.

      Tried a different PC on my local network, same results.

    7. AGN1964 on

      Tried again. I think I clicked on every link. Only the store worked.

    8. AGN1964 on works for me today (first time it's worked for me).
 & do not work.

      None of the links from work (I tried 7 and stopped, all of about and the first 4 in build).

      Every error is the same 404, The webpage cannot be found.

      Hi Guys,
      These are the links from the update:

      This is our main FlipBooKit site:

      Which ones don't work?
      We keep checking them and they seem fine.

      The links wont work for me either. Hopefully that gets straightened out so I could get my design on!

      I just tested the links and they seem fine. Maker is running nicely... which links?
      Anyone else having problems with the links? In any case, thanks for the note AGN. We are really glad when any of the backers raises important issues or notices something not working. Anyone out there tried the maker tool?

    12. AGN1964 on

      I'm really pleased to get a tracking number, it should be here now. But none of the links (above) work for me. Is that going to be fixed soon?

      @Chris -- Why you no read the update? "Our fulfillment house is currently making the decision of what goes out first, but we imagine that all the kickstarter's that were promised for the holidays should be mailed by the weekend (with latest on Monday)."

    14. Chris Konrath on

      Hey there... Why you no reply to emails? Please can someone update me on my order? I pledged the early bird special and haven't heard a thing and I'm getting pretty frustrated about it now...

    15. Barbara Kozlowski on

      Neither of the links on my email today worked! Help!

    16. AGN1964 on

      Great news! I'm glad so many have left the building.

      Are you mailing us tracking numbers? At least mailing us that it has been shipped? Won't open for me. Error 404.

      Um, and the SteamPunk?
      I thought the SP would be the crowning glory beast, the one which all others aspired to....

      ...and you're proudly shipping out all the 'normal' ones and still haven't offered us even a picture of Dr Steampunk... WASSUP?

      I am really running out of patience, as your original plan of a Christmas delivery got waylaid, and I thought I'd be well in with a beautiful Steampunk for my wife's birthday at the end of January.... but now I'm getting scratchy, folks, as I still have no pointers from you about either the design or the function or even the delivery dates....

      Don't forget your early backers, as you've had our money, and now we need our Steampunks

      ETA please? and make it urgent if you can?

      Just got mine, so excited!
