So sorry for the necto post but..

I've been inactive for a number of years and I JUST realized I payed out for a few assembled GH60s like a lifetime ago and never got anything.  I see WFD went MIA.  Mashby was supposed to be taking care of the ConUS shipments? and he's MIA.  So I'm assuming I'm pretty much boned at this point? 

I just want to confirm, so I can move on from this **** show of a GB.

No prob bro, there are still a good handful of hopefuls... any updates @hoffmanmyster?

Still no word from mashby, sadly.  :|  I do still have extras as I mentioned last year, and am hoping to return to this in the near future.  Last summer and fall were pretty busy for me (wedding and all that), and I simply didn't have the bandwidth to make progress on this or any other keyboard project.  I feel terrible about that and want to get whatever I can wrapped up sooner than later, and appreciate everyone's patience.  It's been an interesting ride for all of us. 

Thanks for the update! It really does mean something, considering the journey this has taken. I'll check in, in a couple weeks again haha.

Is there a copy of the original GB order?  I know I bought a few pre-assembled ones and never received anything either.

There is a copy, but it contains a lot of personal info so I won't link it here.  You purchased 3 PCBs and ANSI 1.5x plates, assembled with an assortment of switches.  Your order was in mashby's grouping, which has still not been fulfilled (I haven't heard from him since the last time he responded saying he wanted to finish this up himself rather than have billnye take it over). 


I still owe everyone here an update about what I have left over so we can at least get some of you fine people your orders...  :-[

It was 6 years already? Not a surprise that GH's popularity is declining.

Looks like you were in the Europe group, which I believe was handled by bunnylake?  Did you ever hear from him or anyone else about it?

Once again I will offer to do the shipping for this group buy over my winter break. I will be back home doing an internship between December and March and would gladly ship the orders that mashby has. This is my last year of undergrad, so this is probably the last chance I will have a block of time that I can confidently volunteer my time.

Seems weird to say it was almost two years ago the first time I offered to take over the shipping from mashby :)). He's active on twitter if anyone wants to reach out and try to get in touch with him.

billnye - thank you so much for your generous offer.  I will reach out to mashby by any means I have available and ask that he take you up on this.  It's high time that the remaining participants get the parts they've been waiting years for.  **** happens, things fall through the cracks, and it sucks to admit it - at some point it's time to call in some help.

No response.  :( 

I haven't forgotten about my promise to dig through my leftover parts from proxying, by the way.  I just moved house once again (hopefully for the last time!) and am still settling in.  Once that's all wrapped up, I will be cataloging what I do still have and offering it up here as an attempt to at least sort of almost make things right with those who have been proxy-neglected thus far.

I still have several pcbs and plates (mostly universal ansi)
Let me know if you are interested to take them off my hands for the original price + shipping.

I'm moving in July and won't be near mashby anymore to be able to pick up the boards and do the shipping. This is the last time that I can offer to finish his part of the shipping myself. If anyone has heard from him recently or knows how to contact him, please let me know and I am more than happy wrap up this group buy.

Unlikely I'd say. I'm in the same boat... pretty sure it's a write off at this point.

To all the EU people, bunnylake is the proxy who will be able to help.  I just pinged him and he should have a chance to post here sometime next Monday or so - he is out of switches and stabilizers (we all were under-supplied most of those parts), but does still have some PCBs and plates to take care of some/most (?) outstanding EU orders.

It's also likely he will have some extras when all is said and done, since not everyone replied to the messages, so may be able to help out some mashby refugees as well.  :thumb:
