Bad Dragon Waiting Syndrome :P

Postby Rin » Mon Feb 03, 2014 3:08 pm

We all love Bad Dragon, right? Elsewise we wouldn't be here. Gorgeous and unique toys, the ability to fully customize said toys, great customer service, an awesome community... But there's one thing that vexes all BD customers.

That's right, it's Bad Dragon Waiting Syndrome! This is a "just for fun" thread - not knocking BD in the slightest for the wait times. They're a small company and much of that time is devoted to producing only the best of merchandise. Buuuut it doesn't change the fact that so many of us bounce in anticipation from the moment we decide to get a new toy to the first opening of the box when it arrives.

Update! Since BD no longer lets you see the stage-by-stage progress (the order page goes straight from "processing" to the toy being shipped), here's a revised version of the list!

The stages of Bad Dragon Waiting Syndrome are as follows:
1) Deciding on a toy.
2) Collecting funds for said toy.
3) Figuring out the features and deciding if you're really sure it's what you want, and perhaps ticketing for information or special requests.
(steps 1 through 3 are largely interchangeable)
4) Placing the order.
5) First few days: excitement, checking 10 times a day to see if your order went speedily
6) First 1-2 weeks: happy impatience, checking for progress at least once daily
7) If the order takes more than 2 weeks: Some anxiety, wondering if there's a long line for the model you picked

Odds are you might calm down after this point and become focused elsewhere. If not...
8) If the order takes more than 4 weeks: Notable anxiety. (but everything's fine, right?)
9) 5 weeks: Impatience, anxiety. (breathe in, breathe out...)
10) 6-7 weeks: Paranoia begins to set in (omgomgomgomgomgdidtheyforget?theyforgotdidn'ttheyomgomgomg)
11-1) 8 or more weeks: You begin to vibrate with impatience. Experts recommend a ticket at this point.
11-2) Waiting for reply to ticket: slight easing of symptoms, though they are liable to return during the wait.
11-3) Ticket's been replied to: In most cases, relief and easing of the majority of symptoms. However syndrome may instead escalate if a major roadblock on the way to toy creation and/or shipping has occurred.

Most folks, thankfully, go straight from stage 5, 6, or 7 to stage 12.
12) Checking the mail every time you pass the front door and frequently watching the online tracking once it's shipped.
12.5) Despair and/or rage if shipment is delayed.
13) Initial release of tension - your toy is on your front step!
14) Unpacking. Second build of tension. "Oh boy oh boy oh boy...!!!"
15) Minor release of tension, possibly followed by more building - you can now see your toy in all its glory.
15.5) Uh-oh! Something's wrong! Time to send a ticket! D:
16) Final release of tension. You know why. :fap:

My duke just hit ready for packaging after 3.3 weeks. Pretty excited. Picking was easy I have the hots for hot dragons with big peens so lol. Hardest part is deciding the color probably since it can get expensive

Heheh I guess I'm kind of on 3, as well. ^_^ I'm pretty certain of what colors I want on my Nox, but I want to know if the fade will turn out okay, and if a pearlescent effect could be added.

What toy and color are you hoping to get?

I'm on the waiting stage too. I spent a while chatting with BD on the color I wanted, and it's in production now. I'm really hoping the color comes out like I imagined.

I am currently on stage 6! All of my past orders have been flops until last Friday so this is a bit of a new BD shopping experience for me. It's a small Apollo in Blossom Pink and I can't wait~

Step 5 for me, I've been checking at least twice a day since I placed the order and then I try to convince myself that I'm being ridiculous because there is no way its going to be getting made yet xD

I'm just thinking, why would it take note than a day to be on the stage of prepared for packing lol. Logically because if I wanted to change it I guess I could still. That's just silly though... ship my pristine Dragon cock!

I've wondered that myself, but it occurs to me that the shop dragons might prefer to pack as many as they can at once, so some may sit on the shelf for just a bit while a few others get finished up and checked for quality.

Aw, that'd be awesome!!! ^_^

I know there's no way in heck I can expect to received the one I want quickly, but I'm hoping I get the money in soon so that I can at least order it by my birthday.

Modified. Go have a look. X3

I actually initially thought of throwing something like those in there, but was thinking too much on my own experiences. I tend to be significantly calmer once a much-anticipated delivery arrives, and don't mind if I need to wait a little bit to open the box. My head just goes, "Well, you have it now. It's not like anyone's going to take it from you." :laugh:

Noooo my order was ready to pack for a day or two, and now the order status is still ready to pack but the flint has reverted to 'being checked for quality' again. You guys. :psyduck:

edit: shipped! Thank goodness.
