Sup Bunny. I'm an international order, and I was / am keen on assembly, if that's still on the cards.

Eagerly watching this thread - excited to see some plans are being made to fulfil all the orders!!

Made a post in classifieds, but getting rid of my order.  I believe swill's link still works for those who want to get rid of theirs as well.
Yes. It is still available and will be until things settle down after NA ships (so, indefinitely...).

Mashby and hoffmanmyster have their list as well :D

And just a general FYI the wheels are tentatively in motion.

We hope to get things moving as soon as possible.

Mashby is good with the words though so expect an actual update to come from him when the time is right.

It would still be nice to get an accounting of where all the money went since we're going to be paying for shipping a second time.

I have no problem with doing so as long as the money went to logistics and not someone's pocket.

I'm sorry I just got back online recently.  If you need more US proxies I would be happy to help; I'm in Florida if that matters.  I can probably persuade some of the Florida peeps to help and make it a ProxyPartay (did I just invent a word?).

I'm not in this buy but really want to see it completed.  If there's some other way I can help besides proxying, then that's fine too.
I'm back.

You just wait for your shipping proxy (HoffmanMyster, in your case) to contact you.

Thanks.  That's the clearest answer I've been given.  I'm just annoyed that it appears that a huge chunk of money went missing and no one is being held accountable for it.  I know you guys are just trying to pick up the pieces and I appreciate that.


If it helps you can blame me, nubbinator :)

I'm not looking for someone to blame, I'm just looking for an answer as to why we're in the place we're in.

why would the boards existing be in question


Mod edit >> In response to a snarky comment that has since been deleted:
its being sorted now, people have donated their time, new members have all the goods on hand, and perhaps a little respect for their time and effort in dealing with this thankless task is due, instead of treating them like they are the people who caused the issues in the first place

@turkishrambo I'll be glad to send you photos of your items before you pay shipping.


And in case anyone else missed Matteo's last update, samwisekoi is currently breaking everything out to get things on the way to us proxies.

There will be an official update from the USA/CA proxies soon from @mashby

For the rest of the world bunnylake mentioned a few posts back he's waiting on plates and other bits to get all the rest out.

Sorry for starting crap. Admittedly things are pretty tense for this GB. I did't want people to argue, nor do i think the people picking up the GB are not doing their absolute best. Ive already written the boards as a lost, i just sure as heck don't want to give up more money for false promises.

I just can't recall ever actually seeing the boards (just a pile of boxes). In my mind they don't exist. Maybe its because they should have been here by now if they did exist. (tin foil hat)

This is just my thoughts and I hope it doesn't discourage you guys from helping out. I just want it to be done so i can forget about all this. I feel like the wrong people are getting all the crap now, and its really just another product of how poorly everything has gone down.

I feel really bad. Matt3o, I'm sorry my comment may have been in poor taste. Try not to give up. Please set up a tip jar for parties involved in getting this moving, i would be happy to make things easier for you guys. Thank you aswell, SpamRay.

Proxy Shipping Status Update
« Reply #5743 on: Tue, 01 March 2016, 15:51:12 »
Hey guys! Before we dig into the details of this update, I first want to thank everyone for being patient while we worked on putting together a plan of action and nail down the details of how we're going to drag this group buy across the finish line. Rest assured that those volunteering and in the same boat as you. We're all waiting for our own orders as well and we want to wrap this up as fast as possible.

TL;DR
Three proxies are handling the shipment of the US and Canadian orders and you're going to have to pay for shipping again. Shipping will be a flat-rate of $15 and sent via USPS Priority Mail for US customers. Canadian order will be shipped via First-Class.



GH60 Group Buy Status
In case you haven't been keeping up with this thread, this group buy was started three years ago and it unfortunately fell apart. Details can be found within this thread, but the important point is that many volunteers have been working behind the scenes to repair this buy as much as possible and fulfill everyone's order. It's far from perfect, but we're doing our best with what we have left.

Proxy Shipping
Three volunteers are handling the shipment of the US and Candian orders. They are: mashby, HoffmanMyster and SpAmRaY. Our jobs are to handle the shipping of your order, as complete as we can make it, and to collect the funds for postage.

I Have To Pay For Shipping Again?
Yes. We would prefer that this wasn't the case, but given the status of this group buy we have no other option.

How Much Is Shipping?
$15 for US orders, which includes shipping, PayPal fees and handling charge. Canadian Customers will be sent First-Class for the exact postage + $2 handling fee.  In order to expedite your order we are shipping all US orders via USPS and using a Medium Flat-Rate box. In addition, we are including a $2 handling fee.

Why A Handling Fee?
We're trying to run this as lean as possible, but the handling fee is to offset the PayPal fees as well as incidental costs for packaging and shipping. Thankfully the boxes are free, but there are other costs to get your order to you and we don't want the proxies to lose money handling everyone's orders.

All of us will be keeping detailed records to account for all monies collected for shipping and although we don't expect their to be any, all profits will be donated to GeekHack for the operation of the forum.  For more details regarding on why GeekHack is accepting donations can be found here.

When Do I Have To Pay For Shipping?
After the proxy has your order ready to ship. We first need to receive the goods from Samwisekoi and sort them into individual orders. This will ensure that your order is as complete as possible and that we have the goods in hand first. Once that is complete, we'll invoice you via PayPal for the shipping costs.

What About Assembly?
Assembly was being coordinated by the original leader of the group buy -- WhiteFireDragon. His abandonment of the group buy is what put us in the position that we're in now.  All of the volunteers involved in this salvage process have attempted to recover what we could, but assembly is no longer available.

Your Options
1. You can choose to solder the keyboard yourself (link)
2. Hire a professional (link)
3. Ask someone to volunteer here in the thread.

What's The Plan?
Below is an outline of how we plan to process everyone's order. The good news is that some of these items are already completed, so we're already making progress.

1. Receive the most current spreadsheet available from Matt3o

2. Sort through the spreadsheet and send back totals for each order

3. Order Shipping Materials

4. Send Confirmation E-mail To Order Holders

5. Receive Goods From Samwisekoi & Confirm Numbers

6. Send Invoices via PayPal

7. Receive Payment & Ship

8. Wrap Up Exceptions / Problems


Next Steps
As you can see from the outline above, our next step is to send out confirmation e-mails. The purpose of this e-mail is to verify your current address and provide you with what we have as your order. We'll update the thread when these go out.

Once the confirmation phase is complete, we'll be waiting for the order to arrive from Samwisekoi. We'll keep everyone posted along the way and if you have any questions, please post them in the thread so that we can all keep track.

Are all the parts accounted for now? Plates, switches and stabs?


I ask because I believe someone said there was an issue with some or all of those parts.

Thanks for the awesome update.  I know I've been one of the more vocally pissed off ones in this thread, but in spite of all my complaining, I have nothing but thanks for those of you who picked up this mess from TJ and WFD.  If there are any profits, I wouldn't feel bad about any of you keeping them since you guys actually deserve thanks.  I'm pissed off and annoyed that the original two appear to have run off with a chunk of the money, but that's not on you.

I'd actually love to have an add a tip option or something for the proxy in the confirmation stage.  I'd love to send my proxy some beer money.

Thank you to everyone who has donated their time to get this project moving again!

I took over an order from someone a little over two years ago, and the order appears to still be under their username, but it should have my address now. Should I pm someone to confirm this?

That is what Samwisekoi is sorting through now. The proxies compiled the total switches, plates, pcbs and stabs needed to complete our orders and he's confirming what we have and what we don't have.

Thank you nubbinator for the offer, but I tell you what, I'll let you buy me a beer if we ever find ourselves at a meetup -- which I hope is soon.

Billnye -- please PM me with the name of the user you took over. I think I've got you.

Good news guys! All you still waiting on getting your PCB's will be pleased to know that techkeys have rev c PCB's ready for immediate shipment!

What a kick in the balls that is.

How's they get the rev c schematics? I didn't think they were getting published until everyone had received their orders?
