Yeah I agree with the above, I don't think these guys should be forced to become vendors yet. At least give them the chance to successfully make a few cases. They have enough to deal with at the moment.

didn't the first case already get sent out?
there is a HUGE difference between the fitment issues seidio had with their case and the issues the carbon guys are having with theirs. a GIGANTIC difference. there's also a very BIG difference in price. if you look at the droid seidio case off the phone and the droid carbon case off the phone the differences are very clear. the carbon guys are better off not trying to compare or contrast their problems to other vendors.
now you're bickering over the supporting vendor fees? very classy.
carbon team - i hope your next "first" case for the droid is a freaking grand slam, you guys need a miracle about now.

What kind of problem does SIDIO have with their cases ? I have my case since December when they first launched the cases and it's been almost half year and didn't noticed any problems or degradation to the case , looks and works like the first day .
I am going to take off my Mod shoes (just got em today) and would like to make a comment from a different perspective, but directly related to your comment.
I am a Sponsor on a large automotive Forum and have been for over 12 years. The amount of money I have paid out in sponsorship over the years is nothing to sneeze at (think close to 6 figures).. and I do not begrudge it, BUT as a paying sponsor who always follows the rules.. NOTHING ticks me off more than other Vendors coming in and trying to sell products on that Forum WITHOUT paying sponsorship fees. Trust me, when I see it I make darn sure the Mods take care of QUICKLY... that is part of what I PAY for. It has nothing to do with fearing fair competition, as long everyone is on the same playing field (i.e. paying sponsor fees), I am cool with any competition there. It also has NOTHING to do with "extorting" revenue by the Mods!
I do not know the story here about any vendor issues (too new of a Mod), and I have no knowledge if any sponsor here has complained. BUT I do know I WOULD and something would be done immediately or they would lose my long time sponorship, period.
I see the "excuse", well we are just getting going or whatever, BUT if a Product is being Marketed here, Money is being solicited here AND collected, that's a VENDOR. there is NO gray area there.
The bottom line is making comments about Mods "extorting advertising Revenue" in this or any situation is so laughable it is not funny. As far as the timing (and again I kave no knowledge).. it would only take one PAYING SPONSOR to complain.. and in my book that would be more than enough, no matter what the timing is or not.
Do you really think, one person/company getting a free ride, while everyone else is not, is fair?? I don't think so.
I have watched the other thread from day one, and I will make no comment about it, IMHO it speaks for itself. But if I was a Mod before today I would have hinted to some people that it was out of control, and quite frankly I think the Mods have been very gracious and shown great patience.
OH, one other thing, in just what I have seen in being a Mod for less than 12 hours... you have no clue what those guys have to deal with constantly and I mean constantly... give them the benefit of the doubt, they work there butts off to try and make EVERYONE happy here at Droid Forums!
That just my peronal opinion, putting my new Mod shoes back on.
Please pm me.
