CBCS Turnaround 2.0 TimBildhauser 401 4 hoursesaravo (15640): My Terrificon order that I dropped off on 7/18, is listed as grading this morning (and the invoice says labels). I haven’t seen an email yet (I haven’t checked my junk mail folder). This order was 15 BA, CA, and a few Moderns. No pressing or fast pass.
CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 606 5 daysVenomade (97): Had 2 sigs added to my Secret wars 8 and got it pressed, was a 7.5 and it came back a 7.5 lol. I could have gotten a lower grade so I guess it could have been worse.

A letter from Jeromy Murray, VP of CBCS and Beckett SteveRicketts 112 7 daysBloodlikefire (160): Okay, I'm looking for an update on the progress of getting "Turn around Times under control". It has been more then 3 months since this letter was posted and TAT are still massively behind. How long does it take to get new staff into position and trained? Con season is over. When can we expect to see our books back!

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 1 yearJesse_O (7672): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...

What do you guys think of this? (Re: CGC Crossover) RyanHicks 39 20 hoursTedsaid (2002): The problem isn't that it is unethical in and of itself ... the problem is the appearance and possibility of unethical behavior. I think CGC has proven that they can be unethical on the margins. And I definitely believe they don't have any controls to watch for unconscious bias. They make lots of money through unconscious bias. For example, I've noticed a small but distinct difference between grades that were pressed by CCS and not pressed...
