You know this already, right?

MOO have started making MiniCards with LiveJournal!.

I'm guessing from the traffic to our site, that most of you know this already, via the LiveJournal announcement, but hey, we thought it might be nice to write about it here to, and say a little 'hello' of our own.

Hello.

Ok, now we've got that over with - a quick apology to those of you who've been having trouble on the site. We had a stack of traffic all in one go, but hopefully that should be sorted now. Please give the servers a chance, and if things are a little slow, give it a break and come back in a while.

If you'd like more information about the cards, check out the main MOO site, and if you need some inspiration or ideas about what to do with your cards once you've made them, scroll down and read the blog, or take a look at the Flickr pool. There's all kinds of stuff going on there, from swapping, to launching the cards off tall buildings...

And finally, as Krissy said, you can un-friend us later if you like, we wont be offended (much), but if you'd like to stick around, we'll be posting about new things here, as they happen.

Cheers!
MOO

PS: If you see a post from malbec he's one of the über-MOO coders. He knows what he talking about, so his advice is sound. (He's also pretty good at cooking, but you should probably ask him questions about that elsewhere).

I've been trying to make the cards and the error I keep getting is I don't have any photos. I have plenty loaded into scrapbook, and I have icons too. Just to let someone know, cause I know there are photos there but your site doesn't seem to find them, I know I have some that are public security too so I don't think that's the problem. Just keep getting an error that says "oops you don't seem to have any photos" but I do. Unless it's looking in photobucket instead of scrapbook.

I have been experiencing the exact same error! I uploaded my photos from my computer, set them all to public... everything is as correct as correct can be, and still it doesn't work.

I hope I don't miss out on my minicards!

Seems like an awesome service you guys are selling! I will definitely consider getting a pack of 100 for the hell of it.

I have been having a slightly different problem - I don't get an error but only 2 of my many galleries get their photos loaded into the selector. Do I talk to you about this or to LJ?

Someone on the news post said they were having the same problem, and they hid the galleries they didn't want and then just waited and the rest came in. Not sure if that would help you, but... there you go! *laugh*

I managed to get through in the morning, when you had less traffic since the Americans had gone to bed. XD

I do have one question: how soon can I use my Visa Electron to make payments? Approximately, of course; I figure it should work for us Europe-based LJ-ers who only have debit cards and no access to Paypal?

Hi, people do use their Visa Electron cards with us in Europe, but the only way we can support this at this time is via PayPal.
I'm not sure why you're unable to access PayPal... but just incase you weren't sure, it is available in Europe too.

Firstly, thanks for the free stuff!

Secondly, as you ship worldwide: Would it be possible to make letters from non-English languages available? For example, doing a "greetings" text in German, as I tried to, requires using an "ü" and an "ß", both of which I couldn't use. I'm sure there are similar issues in other languages, and supporting other letters might greatly increase your customer pool.

hello
You should find that for adding text to the back of the cards, all the given character sets in the Unicode Specifications are supported. That means everything from the full European set to African, Indic and Asian scripts - and hopefully German :)

For the more 'fancy' sets used on the textcards, we've tried to find fonts that have as many characters as possible - so some will support German for example, but others wont. 'Stencil' and 'Rounded' for both support 'ß' and 'ü'. Having said that, we've just noticed that 'Modern' should too - and is mis-behaving. We're just trying to fix that right now. Sorry about that.

Hope that helps.

The site seems to be loading quickly, but I am in a never ending loop on the select a photo page. I add my photo and click next step and it takes me right back to the choose a photo page.

I seem to be having the exact same problem. Happens when I use either Firefox or Internet Explorer. After selecting my images, it returns me to the select a photo page telling me that I will need to select at least one image first.

Couldn't get on the site last night, but it's working very smoothly this morning and I managed to order my 10 pack. As everyone else has said, thankyou for the free stuff! (and for allowing HTML on the text for the back of the cards ♥)

Have ordered my free 10-pack, and am considering ordering many more! Thanks for this offer! (And your site worked perfectly for me.)

Site worked fine for me and I've ordered my cards.. I reckon I'll probably be ordering many more if they turn out well..

Thanks for the freebies & Good Luck with it..

The site worked fine for me, but I had the same problem others did about having pictures in the scrapbook that weren't showing up. I solved the problem by getting text cards instead (which are equally as cool, in my opinion).

Thanks for this great offer! :)

Thanks for this! Free stuff is awesome. :D I'm really excited about getting my 10 photo cards, and I will definitely keep you guys in mind if I ever have to order cards for anything.

I tried and tried last night but kept getting an error message so I waited until this morning thinking that the site was just too busy. I'm still getting this same error message: "Sorry, an error occured when retrieving your images. Please try again."

Is it me or is it the site? I have photos and they're public.

Your scrapbook seems a little odd: http://pics.livejournal.com/reggiesgirl2. There's one public gallery with no images in it and that's all. Maybe you need to make the galleries that the images are in public?
