Is Manafont Dead?

I’m a go for another round of order.
If Manafont is no longer servicing, it would be a shame as there are some solid stuff (like kneepads and half-gloves) that I need renewing after many months of usage.

They have a few things listed that I’d be interested in, I’ve bought stuff from them before the “New Management” scrolling announcement. It looks like they’re gone though.

They were already dead to me.

The low mode should be lower.

Dead? I don't get it. The page is loading fine for me. They even have some interesting new lights I've not seen anywhere else yet.. ?

I will confirm that it does not work because I tried to buy IR module there. You can not finish transaction. "New management" screen appears so don't even try.

Last order I placed never arrived.  Got no response on my inquiries.  Neither did Paypal.

What’s really strange is that deaths of these types of vendors is not more frequent.

+1.
Up to about mid-2012 I was regularly ordering stuff from Manafont. Then things started to sour, so I stopped using them.

Don’t think I’m ever going back.

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

I’ve had good experience with Manafont before. I wanted to place an order two months ago but the new management thing appeared. Goodbye and I have to look at somewhere else.

Tried contacting them 3 times now :   No reply ..  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

My guess is they went out of business and are keeping the site up hoping to sell the domain. Money Mouth

I think it's time to use all Mana points, before Manafont ends.

Light up the darkness.

I will try in the next two days. If I get nothing it's the same result as I wouldn't try to pay an order with Manapoint and the homepage get offline. I will not invest money for the order - only use manapoints (value round about $16).

Light up the darkness.

best reply in this thread so far

The Journal of Alternative Facts

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of Alternative Facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists."
