We’re talking gskt here. Wasn’t the original gb estimate like 90 days? I don’t care how easy tofu O-rings are to source, gskt O-rings will take 6-12 times that.

Because gskt.

He already paid for like 300 o-rings. What's he gonna do, keep them? Charge you shipping twice when they come in?

Keep them. O-rings are easy to source for people who are willing to take their boards now.

Why even argue this? It would require logistical coordination with buyers. That’s simply not happening in this gb.

I don't think buyers will mind so much if he simply keeps the orings we paid for. But then he'll have a bunch of random o rings lying around.... environmental waste for a couple of impatient guys.

What do you mean loss? GB runner has already been paid. There is no loss. It's a win for him if anything since he could always sell the o-rings or whatever.

I really don't understand how gaskets can take 4 months. Look at the J01-rev1 GB. It took Jae a week to resolve the gasket issue he ran into with the GB....A week...

Maybe time for a mod to step in and give Weaston a nudge again. He obviously has no respect for his customers...You know, the people that have given him 10's of thousands of dollars.

I don't want to tell you how to run your GB because I don't know the full context to your personal life, but with all the misinformation happening in this thread (that's spanning thousands of comments at this point), I think it will do both you and your customers a great favor if you setup some sort of monthly or bimonthly update cycle. Even if there is no news, it would help calm your customers down. It's mostly a trust thing.

It's easy to think that running a GB is simply sending the product to someone that gave you money, but only those that have ran GBs before know that it's almost a full-time job where you wear multiple hats including customer service when keeping everyone up to date.

Observing this thread, every few months there's a new thing that pops up here, both those that are genuinely concerned or people looking to eat some popcorn. Some of that is caused by your inactivity and absence, really.

Anyways, not my GB, and I know worldwide logistics + manufacturing right now is in the gutters due to COVID alongside you know, there being a pandemic that affects real lives..

Hope all is well on your side..

great news about the o-rings, but also curious if the address changes have been processed. i emailed the address associated with the paypal invoices with an address change and haven't heard back. not sure if they were processed in silence (or are actively being processed) but a heads-up on current status and deadline of when to get address changes in would be super appreciated.

Honestly at this point it's rather unimportant. People are more concerned about Weaston posting updates on the information that has been asked:
- ​Have the o-rings been delivered?
- If so when will the shipping start?
- If not when is the new ETA?
- Have the address changes been accounted for?

That would already be a step in the right direction.

Once the packaging form has arrived, we can place the order for the cardboard boxes. Can't wait!

Then after boxes arrive, Weaston can order tape! That should only take 5-6 more months, but it's ok! He'll show pics of the tape once it arrives.

After that, he can order bubble wrap! But he can only order 1 bubble at a time, and each bubble takes about a day to produce, too. Should have all the bubble wrap in...7 or so years.

This GB is ridiculous.

That would be pretty funny though.

On a serious note, gaskets are all here, sorry I haven't posted a picture yet (soon ^tm).

I went through today and updated all address changes I could find (from geekhack and discord, I still need to respond to direct emails).  If you did not get a response about an address change and you sent it on geekhack or discord then please send another.  Shipping is happening very very soon so if you have a new address change please let me know as well.

Again sorry for the wait, not much longer now.

Any details for those who elected to get their GSKT cerakoted? Done or currently underway?

I sent an e-mail some time ago requesting a change in my cerakote color, so I'm hoping that it can be addressed before everything is finalized.
