Actually, the subject line kinda says it all :)

Merry Christmas (in July!) You will find in your account a little gift of Tanga Cash. $1 for all users and $2 if you are a Super Tanga User (STU) We haven’t done something like this in quite some time and thought it was about time we said “Thank You!” for making Tanga such a cool place to hang out.
We also wanted to make you aware of some of the changes and improvements we’ve made on the site. We are now featuring a 24-hour Game/Toy-only deal which will make a lot of our game-crazy users very happy. There is also a new section called Good-Till-Gone which will feature a variety of different products that will be for sale until the inventory runs out. Here, we will also sell games that we have in smaller quantity as well as electronics, home products and other items.
If you haven’t done so already, please check out the excellent deals we have on our magazines and t-shirts on a daily basis.
Our notification system will be updated soon to allow you to choose which types of deals you want to be notified about. If you want our regular Tanga and Game sections only, you will have the option to choose that.
Have a great week!

Hey Tanganites – we have introduced two new categories to the site. One is a game only deal area and the other is good-till-gone. The watches and household items weren’t selling as well as I had hoped so we decided that we could still put up really good deals in those areas in the good-till-gone section as we get those types of deals in.
Game section: we will be featuring one new game deal a day at 7:00 p.m. PST. In the random occasion that we don’t have anything to sell, the deal will remain the same or remain in a sold out status. We’re hoping that doesn’t happen very often but it’s a possibility. Again, if you know of any game manufacturers that should be selling on Tanga, please let them know!
Good-Till-Gone: This will be a section where we can put up items we think are a good deal and they will be for sale from anywhere to minutes to hours to days. Just depending on how many we have left. It could be a few games that we have available and need to move them quickly, a cool electronic, a watch or whatever we have in stock.
We are working on the notification system so you can sign up to be notified of any of the deals we have on our site. That will make it easier for you to just get notified of the Game and Good-Till-Gone deals for example.
There may be a few bugs so please post them here if you find them!
Because we launched early tonight, the deals today will flow through until tomorrow evening.

It’s been over a year since we last looked for Puzzle Moderators (http://www.tanga.com/forum/blogs/b-list-closed-b-looking-for-puzzle-moderators), which is not bad when you consider the potential for burn-out :)
But we’ve definitely lost a few Mods – heck, I’m not even here as much as I used to be – and some extra hands would really be helpful.
I was going to just cull from the old list and send out a few Tangagrams, but then I saw: that was over a year ago! Man… is it possible that maybe time IS going faster? Like maybe the Earth has sped up its rotation slightly? Time is a man-made conceit, after all, so it’s not necessarily a “law” that’s set in stone, right? I mean…
Think you have what it takes to be a Moderator? Wanna approve puzzles? Nominate them? Work with puzzlemakers?
Then step right up and let us know.
We’re basically looking for Tangans who’ve had a decent track record as puzzlemakers, but… as long you understand puzzles, you don’t HAVE to be a puzzlemaker – RPardoe is a Mod, and has never made a single puzzle here.
Moderators will still be able to solve puzzles and get Tanga Points for solving them.
If interested, please post to this thread with the word INTERESTED.

See http://tech.slashdot.org/story/09/07/03/1637228/Seattle-Data-Center-Outage-Disrupts-E-Commerce for details. Apparently fire and servers don’t mix.
Use Paypal to order for the time being.

Make sure to come back and check it out! There will be a lot of stock so if you want it, you should be able to get it.

For some reason, the qty available was set to 0. It’s now ready to go – sorry for the inconvenience. We will be selling this for another day…

Hey Tanganites! A month or two back I picked a specific evening where you were to sit and visualize tons and tons of people coming to Tanga. I wanted to see if visualization worked and the results were astonishing. Looking back on all of those days, over a period of time, the number of visitors grew 100% from the previous time frames.
Let’s try something else and see what happens! People are always complaining about how they aren’t seeing the types of products that they want to buy on Tanga. Lets all visualize on Friday evening, June 5th, at 7:00 p.m. PST (10:00 p.m. EST) vendors contacting Tanga to sell their items. If you want more games, think of game vendors physically typing out an email to us and requesting to sell product. If you want cool electronics, think of those items being offered to us.
If we can get double the traffic in a day through visualization, this could work too. In fact, what I will do is put something in the heading of the product that shows if an item came through this exercise or not. Any item coming in from 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night until late next week will be labeled as a “visualization” item.
I know that we may have items come in that would have come in anyway, but I will know if there is an increase of activity!
Let’s give it a shot!

Would any of you be interested in creating a theme and designing a t-shirt around that theme? We could do have all sorts of themed contests like favorite board games, board game designers, political, holidays, etc. The winner could get a cut of the profits from the sale of the t-shirt. People could design the t-shirts and we could have a contest for the top 3 shirts and those would be printed.
Anyone interested? How would you like to see it setup and implemented?

Update: New email server in place – mail should be being sent to everyone except people with yahoo.com email addresses. Yahoo is blocking email form us.

We moved Tanga to some new beefy servers.
Post here or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you notice any glitches.
First glitch found and fixed: some stuff appears to be in the future.

After what we’ve decided to spin as a very long temporary leave of absence, RPardoe is once again a Tanga Mod. Which is very good for us.
Welcome back, Rich.

Sorry about that. I’ve contacted the systems people responsible and asked for their resignations and a prompt fix for the problem. In the meantime, retyping in your credit card should allow you to purchase all the Tanga goodies you desire.

I had a very uneventful April Fools Day. I didn’t have one trick played on me and I didn’t do anything to anyone this year. Lame!!!
Share your best tricks…
