Question from a Massdrop newbie
« on: Wed, 06 January 2016, 20:44:12 »
So, I've been on GH a while now, but I've never done anything on Massdrop before.

I'm interested in the Royal Kludge RC930. I requested the drop, which was below the 200 threshold at the time. Now it's over the threshold, but there has been no response/update from Massdrop as of yet. Is this normal? How does this process work?

Is there an average delay between the threshold being passed, and a drop launching? Or is RK a slower vendor to work with than most?

They've got a whole subform here! You should ask there. Maybe a mod can move it for you.

But yes, this is totally normal. I'm sure it will come back soon enough. The MD team may be able to provide more insight.

Moved!  :thumb:

In my experience, massdrop will reach out after 200 requests, but it might take some time before it is actually dropped.

Normally they put the drop back up after the last drop ships but maybe for this one there is a delay from Royal Kludge

I guess they'll let me know when the drop is activated again. Now if  I could only find out whether it's true that it doesn't work at the OS X login screen, as I read in one review.

I'll probably get one anyway, and a wireless keyboard to use for logging in, if need be. I can't resist that ultra-quiet sound, even if it doesn't feel quite the same as genuine Topre (which I also own) :)
