Just a gentle reminder to make payments before 7 Nov 2020, as I targeted to send the orders to manu before 15.
Managed to contact PayPal to increase my limit. I will fork up the rest if insufficient and leave it in my PayPal balance.
Do contact me if you have any problems. Unpaid invoices will be cancelled and ended to ban list after 7 Nov 2020.

Well damn, missed the GB!

If anyone has second thoughts I am up for a Carbon colored one!

Spots are not transferrable. Best to wait in 2nd hand market.

Not looking for transfer, just making it obvious i am interested for any party that has second doubts, will need to sell as soon as they receive, run into bad luck, etc

Will definitely look at second hand market but most people seem to like flipping boards and there is no board worth more than its GB cost, IMO

Orders will be closed and finalized in 5 hours from the time of posting.
All unpaid invoices will be cancelled and will be barred from entering my future GBs.
There will be strictly no change of addresses, should you move, please provide me with proof of moving during time of shipping.

Thanks again for those that participated, will move onwards to consolidation of orders.
I will provide manufacturing updates like how I did for Nebula. Cheers.

Dec updates: not much going on here. Things are still moving on the CNC side and happy holidays to all.
Will try to provide an update if I receive anything substantial from China side.

even though not much substance, thanks for the update. I always appreciate it when gb runners drop in once in a while even just to say 'things are continuing to move along'.

I mean...this is the V2 after all  :D I'm sure there will be a V3 eventually but it won't happen until well after V2 has shipped. Oko has other projects they're working on as well.

Last time I looked in the discord it looked like Oko was working on shipping labels for everyone. I left the discord because I know I'll eventually get the board and I wanted to slim down on servers.

I check the discord every 48hrs or so. Oko had an illness in the family and then some lockdowns began. Haven’t heard much in the last month. Around the beginning of the western new year there were pics of boards and bags aplenty so reports that they’ve been made seem accurate. Happy to post back in here when there’s something concrete.

Will be 17 months later this week. The other boards of Fall 2020 (S75 U80a Iron 180 Bauer) are out. Vega was a few weeks later but maybe ~10x the number of units?

Been told there will be updates for months, and still nothing.

At least a few words explaining the situation would be nice, but then decided to mute discord channel instead.

Things are getting fishy….

The Discord has been locked down. Okonomiyaki does not acknowledge question and has not provided any updates for several months.  I don't think this is a scam or intentional, but Okonomiyaki has now held our money for 1.5 years with almost no updates. The refusal to provide a meaningful update is beyond frustrating and a big middle finger to your customers. There is NO excuse for this in my mind. I don't care if you think this is a "hobby" or a business - what I'm asking for is a basic level of respect and clear communication.


The fact that this is the only place I can vent (I don't expect a response) is a sad statement about the state of this hobby. I will reference the Vega here as it was a long wait with many delays, yet I never felt frustrated or cheated; because ai03 was transparent and communicated with customers respectfully.

Please do better, Okonomiyaki.

Unfortunately this type of thing happens all too often in this hobby. Good news is that there's lots of proof that manufacturing actually took place so it's most likely it's not a question of if but when.

As much as the delay seems unsettling and perhaps misleading (since the supposed call for shipping address confirmations was months ago), I think we're in good hands and there won't be an issue with the boards being fulfilled. I'm still stoked for this board.

An update on discord:

“ 12 May 2022 update: Will be verifying all the units in China with a partner of mine in CN.
The list is already finalized. Once this is done within the month, shipping and invoicing will happen within May 2022.”

In hope of hearing from some others in this GB, the May 2022 invoicing and shipping self-imposed deadline has come and gone without any public updates (to my knowledge). I personally haven't received a shipping invoice or any updates and the Discord is locked down. Has anyone received any news or a shipping invoice?

Thanks

Appreciate the responses. At this point, the money's probably long gone . I hope someday a keyboard shows up.

This has made me change my view on the hobby (probably because it's my first really bad one). I used to give the benefit of the doubt to designers and all the people involved in actually making these keyboards happen; niche hobby and people doing it for the love of it kind of thing - I accepted the financial risk and unreliable schedules while dealing with anonymous entities. I will be more careful going forward. I don't know how many GB runners publicly provide their real names or contact information, but I'll be looking for it from now on. I suspect I'll be disappointed. I don't pretend to fully understand why I never questioned committing thousands of dollars to people I had never met, known or could be sure even existed (going a bit overboard here, I get it).
My general point is maybe the hobby has grown enough to demand a little more as buyers?

To be fair to yourself, Okonomiyaki had a reputation for being extremely trustworthy and had a proven track record of delivering things smoothly. There isn't anything you could have really done as a buyer that would have helped or prevent this from happening. Hindsight always 20/20, but there were no red flags at the time. I'm sure we'll get boards eventually but I have a feeling they will be less than A-stock. It just doesn't make sense that'd we'd get photos of boards practically finished with machining and then never receive anything. Clearly something went wrong, just wish we could get an iota of information as to what the issue actually is. I will definitely not be recommending anyone join any future buys from Okonomiyaki.

Sounds like reasonable perspective.

Takes a long time to build a good reputation and an instant do ruin it. I really hope whatever the issues are she can resolve them without undue burden.
I for one am not planning to recover the money and will continue waiting.

But Oko, for the love of god, give us an update.
