Yes, thank you Lori for the information and for all the hard work!

For reference, we live in Chicago and we have gotten our VTD treasure anywhere from Thursday-Monday. It usually shows up on Fri/Sat, but there was one time it was delayed until the following Monday. I will of course be setting up tracking as soon as there's a tracking number. :laugh:

What, if anything, can we do to make this easier for the people working for TD?

So.ething like adding street, place or avenue to our addresses seems quite simple.

Should it be St, Street, or so.ething else?

Probably best to abbreviate Street, Avenue, etc. Tho post office seems to like it that way.

I've noticed a lot of places have moved to a system where you start to enter your address then pick it from a list of "known good" addresses. Would something like that help with the street, avenue, etc. issue?

Edited to add:
The peek behind the scenes here is one of the things I really appreciate about TD. The powers that be do a tremendous amount of work to keep us happy. Going the extra mile to explain the process is really awesome!

Thank you for the information, Lori!

This batch of tokens will be fun to wait for since we've already decided when it comes in that we are shoving it under the Christmas tree so we can have ourselves a true dungeon Christmas XD

I have to get the report downloaded after all the runs are done, make any corrections to the report from people who didn't select Rogues or whatever, then group by address to combine shipping. I have to do a decent amount of work on the spreadsheet before we're ready to go.

Then I have to print the pick labels. I also have to import the orders into Shipping Easy. Unfortunately, the import doesn't like some of your addresses (if you don't put Street or Avenue or whatever) so those all have to be fixed before the import will complete.

If there's any help you need in automating data cleanup, I'm sure there are plenty of us here who live and breathe data analysis/modeling that could help you. Maybe post some anonymized data samples with common problems and we can offer suggestions on macros, etc to help.

(Obviously something you could consider for the future, in what I'm sure is your massive amounts of free time :laugh: )

As always, thanks for all the hard work and dedication y'all put into making these events to help us keep what little sanity we have left!

About 60% of my job is building macros or queries to clean data. I'd be more than happy to help build out something for True Dungeon.

Rather than cleaning and re-cleaning as new addresses get entered, maybe it'd be useful to get the tech team to connect td.events into an address API (such as the one the USPS provides )? That would allow TD to have correct addresses from the start instead of cleaning them up later.

Thanks, Lori! It would be great to have the Platinum Nuggets in time for V3B, but no worries if the timing doesn't work out for that. :)

Thanks Lori, Jeff, volunteers and all of the TD folks. VTD 3a was awesome! We are so happy to have these events and this one happening right before Christmas adds some excitement for everyone.

Lori, thanks for sharing the update and for all the hard work you and everyone at TD do.

I don't envy you this week working to get treasure out and then turning around to get out codes for V4 sales a few days later.

Thankfully the codes are for a full year. So unless someone buys tokens between when the first codes went out and now, they don't need new ones.
