Hi all,

I received an incorrect order and I’m trying to find who got it so I can trade.

Did anyone order a: Purple Case, Brass Plate

But, instead received a: Everest White Case, PCB, Brass Plate

If you did, please let me know so we can swap. Thanks!

Ordered myself an Everest White but got myself a Black case.

Anyone ordered a Black case and got a White one?

Contact me on discord: RN00175#5813 or PM me if you do and am willing to trade it.

My package came in with my correct order had a minor issue that Louis fixed immediately. I hope everyone gets their order mix up resolved and I can't wait to see pictures of everyone's builds!

Hard to tell what % of people have incorrect orders. I check discord daily and it's always just a handful of people, but that is just discord. I am hoping for Alf and everyone elses sake that mistakes are not wide spread. My ordered was incorrect I am hoping the community comes together and does the right thing and redirects their orders properly.

Louis has been very responsive with PM's so I have faith everyone will be sorted out.

Anyone who receives.

- Purple DC60.
- Dark grey/greenish DC60
- Dark grey plate.

Message me please :(

Got mine today, all correct, looks and feels amazing!

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but what do I need to unscrew the screws? It looks like hex head, but I don't have any that are small enough for it. Hoping that someone can tell me so I can buy what I need correctly the first time  :))

Received my shipment on Saturday (east coast USA). Looks good, surprised how heavy the case is. The black pads on the bottom are much nicer than clear pads for this black case. Good GB.

I had the same problem with the DC60 brass plate so ended up using a spare KBDfans plate.

There are no layouts for the DC60 on https://config.qmk.fm/#/alf/dc60/
(Even though Alf's own website says there are -- https://alfstudio.club/dc60firmware/)

I tried flashing mine with a DZ60 layout, thinking it was similar enough, and that turned the board into a paperweight.
Does anyone have the DC60 firmware?

Edit: I was able to build firmware using the .json on Alf's site. Would still be nice if it were uploaded to QMK Configuration.

Unfortunately the DC60 group buy has been a nightmare.

I always give people the benefit of the doubt and there were some legitimate unavoidable delays last year. But the list of delays with little to no explanation is very long.

I received an incorrect order on the 21st of November (cases reported as finished and in Alf's possession in September for reference). Louis did a great job creating a private group for people with incorrect orders (over 30) todo swaps and try to rectify the issues. The swaps covered approx 10 people of the 30. Shipping paid for by Alf :)

For me personally I could not resolve my issues with swaps. After a week of negotiations on the 6th of Dec I resubmitted my shipping details for the replacement cases that had either never been made or disappeared. I was happy with the resolution which was to accept 1 case not of the finish I ordered and a Bstock case (I ordered 2 cases originally) with a partial refund for the missing plate and the compromise of a bstock case.

Originally manufacture of replacements was said not to be an option which is why I accepted a Bstock case in the finish I wanted as a replacement.

So the cases promised to me were left overs and defective units, on hand from manufacturing months prior. It is now the 11th of January over 1 month since those cases were promised which have not been shipped. The reason for the delay was that Alf did not want to make more than one trip to ship cases and I would have to wait for the manufacture of other peoples cases before mine would be shipped.

It seems Alf has plenty of time to create new group buys and accept money. But not enough to make a trip to the post office to rectify his mistakes from months ago.

Some will say.

"gRoUp BuYs AlWaYs HaVe DeLaYs" frankly this is an apologists attitude and mistakes of the past are something to be learned from. Not used as justification.

*Edit.

I would also like to add that currently iLouis the gb runner (who has done his best) was the middle man for exchanging money. Currently all refunds and reimbursed extra shipping costs have been taken care of by him and not Alf.

Mine was shipped to the wrong address after I got a confirmation email from Louis that they had the correct. I was lucky enough to pick my board up after swinging by the incorrect address. I didn’t realize how badly some people’s orders were messed up.

Phew. Close call.

It's all been going on privately for months now. Barely anything in public.

Funny I just got tagged by Alf that my replacements have been shipped... spooky timing. But my post is still relevant.

This is rly a long time. I totally feel everyone that did not get their order, yet. I  am still waiting for my case to arrive. 
My order was shipped out (in the first by already delayed batch) and had only the name on the address label was wrong.  I correctly got the request to pay customs by phone, so I did. Well the parcel service obviously could not find anyone living by the given name living at that address (he also is a customer but from another country) and shipped the case *back* to ALF.
ALF did personally promise to not let me wait for weeks. Well, now (one month later) I am trying to get a hold of him, again.

I originally wanted to get into the g60 group buy and used the dc60 as an in-between. however after how this went down..... I'm afraid that was my last gb from ALF. I paid in full, I paid customs, and still have no board, months after the promised delivery date. 

I just wanted to put my +1 out there. This is another messed up order.

Louis is my hero. Dude's a stand-up guy who took care of me as if I were his kid. Although I was around a month or so late to the "where's my DC60?" party, Louis and I got everything resolved in 6 days (December 7 - 15) from start to finish. It saddens me he had to have his GB tainted by ALF's logistical nightmare and lack of communication.

TL;DR
Louis is a homie.
Will participate from another Louis GB.
Will not participate in any ALF-shipped GB.

To be fair, ALF is just a manufacturer, and Louis is paid to run this GB on behalf of ALF :) The major issue here, of course, was SF messed up the shipping addresses, and ALF lost a lot of money for this GB, of course, Louis' wasted a bunch of time as well. But making the boards takes time and ALF has addressed or is addressing the problematic shipping and cases (I did not follow the most recent updates).

That said, Louis has been, and is my good friend, but please understand the situation and don't discredit ALF like that.

I hope people can still take a positive side for this, $80 a case at the quality of DC60 will probably never happen again.

I wasn't part of this GB but if you allow me to be curious, I'd like to understand this part.
I mean, how can the transporter mess up the shipping addresses? Isn't someone responsible for packing in between manufacturer and transporter? Or was SF paid to pack and put the shipping addresses stickers on them as well? Or maybe I'm missing something?

Yes SF comes to your home to pack in China, especially for this large number of orders.

Not saying ALF is not to be partially blamed, just saying that the guy is not slacking off, but he is working his butt off to address the issues, and some are out of his control, so give him some time if you please.

And kudos to Louis for the amazing service.

ALF GB's should not be trusted at all. If you want more proof, go look at the way the X1.1 GB was and still is, being run. A keyboard that was supposed to be delivered in 3 weeks is now not supposed to be to people until about the 7 month mark. The people that received theirs had boards that quite obviously had no QC done on them. The brass weights have terrible machining, swirl marks, spots from some liquid, dents and dings. On top of the fact that it's quite obvious he lied about shipping a huge portion of the boards. And now he's saying that the machining process is going to take until March-April to complete, even though he's showed videos of fixed plates already...The whole situation is ridiculous.
