It has been an exhausting few weeks for Bexxie and I. She had been working for months to get the website up and running, and I think we can all agree she has done an amazing job. At the same time, I had been uploading and getting the content together, so by the time the site went online last week, we were both completely knackered.
We are now recovering, and starting to sort out issues and add more to the site. I have designated each Monday as my “internet” day, just for writing and adding content.
So lets deal with things one at a time. It seems to me that the international postage for Tshirts etc is very expensive. We are using the USPS postage calculator and are trying to make sure the options are correct. We have added an option for international mail that is cheaper – we didn’t know this was available until recently – and we have removed the more expensive option, so now the only choice is the cheapest – First Class International Parcel.
That fixes that when you order a single shirt or item. But I am guessing that the site is combining orders and simply doubling the postage price for 2 shirts or whatever. Obviously this is no good, so I am going to look into that and see what can be done. In the meantime, if you have attempted to order more than one shirt, or a combination of items, and found the postage price has been too high to actually make the order, please email me. I will get your order together, check the exact postage price, and we can do it that way.
Either way, I will get it sorted out – and thanks in advance for your patience!
I also want to thank everyone who has found discrepancies and mistakes and let me know so I could fix them – thats been very helpful!
Next up – we will be adding the podcast to the site in the next few weeks or so – as soon as I have a new podcast mix done, basically. And we will be getting the RSS feed fixed too.
I am going to be uploading the D’n'B labels in the next few weeks. Once that is done, the shop will sort of function as the labels discography as well as a shop. I know some of you are sad that the “music” section on the old site is gone. It was a useful tool for the back catalogue, but it would involve a mad amount of reuploading to add that to this site, and it would be sort of pointless too lol. So for now, its going to stay as it is.
What next? Well…the next release for KFA is KFA53 – True Skool E.P part 8. This will come out on May 28th as the Executive Edition. Here are the soundclips…
Twin Time – The Beats Shook
Neglect Of Probability – Brand New Genius
Shive – A Black Sky
Ax-Is – Into The Dark
I have many big plans for the label, and an incredible amount of stuff is going on behind the scenes. I really want to tell you all about it, but for right now, I have to wait because not everything is finalized. But it has been pointed out to me that September 2012 marks the 20 year anniversary of Kniteforce Records, and if you think i am going to let that pass without doing something amazing, then you have lost your mind lol. So big plans for September!
I am working on the first “Hall Of Fame” thing, so that should go soon. And as said before, I am going to be doing more writing for the site. I intended to do some of that today, but its 2:30pm already, I have been working flat out all day just replying to emails and organizing cunning plans for the future, and doubt I will get a great deal of writing done. But what should happen in the future is that I will write a piece on a Monday, and a blog post like I am doing now, and then update the site on the Tuesday.
Okay, so thats where we are for now!
