Wow....I feel completely ripped off. Honestly tho i'm not even mad about it really. Same crap different day, i'm used to it now. I've completely changed how i play and the amount of money i spend on this game because i frankly just don't care anymore.
Info about the countdown from the old board:
So yeah, 78 bps we spent for this "exclusive" holiday ensemble including the now non-exclusive dress. Way to go Playdom.day 7 - levelling to level 5 / 6 of City of Wonder

day 5 - levelling to level 2 of My Vineyard
day 4 -
day 3 - being over level 10 in sorority life

grr, it's unfair
Without going into how these are actually two different items, just with identical images; the dress was never exclusive, as the image was recycled from 6 months prior to the holiday countdown. It seems to me you spent 78 BPs for LE items and the promise of an exclusive holiday ensemble. You still have the LE items, so all Playdom owns you is an exclusive holiday outfit for the ensemble.
What you said about the recycled dress is also true, but we didn't know that we would be getting said recycled dress at the time this was going on until the countdown was completed and as you remember people were upset at this as well.
What makes this a rip off in my eyes is that in the end, even more so now in light of this dress under a different name and different stats being available in the VB for purchase, is the fact that a major component of the final prize is now available. Honestly if I could turn back time and know then what I know now, I would have never bought half of those items and would have waited it out until the only item I truly like from the final holiday ensemble to be available for purchase for what I view as a fraction of the total overall cost.
Now I agree with what you say, yes I do still have the LE items, and yes Playdom owes us an exclusive holiday outfit for the ensemble but will they deliver on that? If they do then I will be satisfied, if they don't (which will probably be the most likely outcome) at least a reimbursement for the outfit in bps at it's current cost should be given in my honest opinion.

I think a more appropriate outcome would be for them to credit the dress, bag and shoes to all of the characters of the players that fully participated in the countdown. I spoke with Whitney about this, and while she said that it was unlikely that the shoes and bag would be credited to my main, as the VIP illustrates, it is quite possible for them to issue several copies of the same item to all player characters.
Of course, I would be more that happy to eat crow if Playdom steps up.
Playdom has completely lost me as a paying customer. They might as well put the casino dresses (including the past SA casino dresses) and VIP outfits in there. They are exclusive too. Three words for you Playdom --- Stupid stupid stupid!!!
