I just got an update from Melissa- they're running a couple days behind, but will be ready to ship on Tuesday. An extra 2 work days is not bad considering we've had the estimated date for at least 4 months now. I wish I could plan my work so far ahead with such precision.  :cool:

Assuming the package(s) go out on Wednesday, and UPS takes the normal amount of time, I should have them in hand by the next Friday. From there we (my wife and I) will be breaking them down into ready-to-ship orders and weighing them. Shipping invoices will go out as we get individual orders weighed and ready to ship.

Better get those barnacles scraped, hoist the mainsail, and ensure your vessel is seaworthy, because Nantucket Selectric sets sail soon.
Exciting news! I cannot wait :D

Hopefully we are able to add a few more blank keys to the order before shipping the order to buyers. Since we need to pay for shipping cost once the order is ready, adding those additional blank keys into the invoice should be doable.

As this GB is before VE.A order, I missed out on ordering the 2.75u and 2u blank key as spacebars. Preferably yellow. Blue will work too.

skullydazed please let us know if we are able to do that, if you have those addition stock. Thank you!

Hey guys,
I just missed this group buy so now i wanna find someone can transfer the order to me. I can pay a bit higher for that. Please shot me a pm
I need a tkl base set  , homing keys, ergodox set, specialty key add-on , cape code , amity island.
Thank guys

Yah I am sad I missed this set by about a month:( Oh well, maybe next time unless somebody has a TKL they want to sell the spot for!

I recently and sadly (like so many others before me) have decided that SA is not for me. I will be parting with my set (Base, Numpad, Homing, Amity Island, Cape Cod, Yellow and Red spacebars, and yellow blank gamer keys).

If you would rather let me dole out sets and not have to deal with selling your spot yourself I'm happy to refund you (or anyone else.) I'm keeping a waiting of people who would like to get in on the buy. (PM if you want to be on that list.)

If you'd rather sell the spot yourself I'm cool with that too. In order to successfully transfer the order I will need to get a PM or email from both buyer and seller. Anyone buying someone else's spot in the group buy will be responsible for shipping costs, so please make sure the buyer knows that.

NS isn't my highest priority right now, so please be patient if you're asking me about any of this. When it gets closer to shipping time I will again be very responsive to NS requests, but for now I'm focusing on the other cool stuff I'm doing. :)

In other news... no news is good news! We continue to wait for manufacturing to happen and until production starts we won't have a firm idea of whether the 8/31 date will be met. So far every indication is that PuLSe and 1976 are on track, so I expect that shipping invoicing will happen in September as planned.

Skully, I'm already in for the plank and amity island kit. I'd love to pick up a homing set, cape cod, and anyone else's specialty kit.

Hi Everyone!

As some have noticed, it's finally shipping to me! I expect to receive it next week and begin packing orders immediately. Here's just one of the ways I've been preparing:



I've also been working on the shipping payment and tracking system. Within the next few days I'll post the first version to the https://nantucket.clueboard.co/ website. If you still have your invoice email from last February your invoice URL will continue to work. If you do not have that don't panic! In the next few days you will receive an email with updates and a link to your order status page.

While reconciling payments I've discovered a few irregularities, and I'm having to change a couple things to make my accountant happy. In the end, they all work out in your favor.

First, I know you think you've paid for your set(s) but you haven't. You've merely paid a deposit for your set(s). This is an important distinction that allows me to save some people a few bucks.

Second, some people ended up under-paying their deposit due to a mistake I made calculating the price. The good news is that none of you owe any more for the set(s) themselves. The only money you'll be asked to pay is for shipping charges, same as everyone else. Effectively you lucked into a discount. :)

Third, some people ended up over-paying their deposit. This will reduce the balance of your shipping charges to make up for the overpayment.

Fourth, if you are in California your sales tax burden has been reduced. I originally calculated that as 10% because I didn't want to worry about where you live. My accountant has instead moved me to the method where we calculate sales tax based on where Clueboard is operating, so you only owe 8.75%. The additional 1.75% will be applied to your shipping costs.

Last, but certainly not least, I will be adding an optional Geekhack Donation field. If you'd like to make a donation to Geekhack at the same time you pay for your Nantucket Selectric order you may do so here. ~97% of the money donated here will go to Geekhack, with the rest going toward paypal/credit card fees.

Prepare to board, Ladies and Gentleman, we set sail soon.

You should set up a Skully the Captain donation button as well. I'd be willing to spare a few bucks directly to you since we'll be sending a payment for the shipping anyways. Your design and GB has been a pleasure to be a part of. Or at least I hope you're profiting from the GB, you've spent a lot of time on it.. Doing a service to the community is great, but everyone needs to feed themselves..

I appreciate the sentiment. Every GB organizer puts a lot of time and money into these, and we should be asking this question to make sure that people don't overstretch themselves or do too much uncompensated work.

For Nantucket Selectric I baked in 5-10% extra on the key sets themselves to hedge against unforeseen problems. Some of that gets sopped up by things like the calculation mistake early in the paying process, but any money left over will go into the Clueboard business. I also have the retail sets to sell, and the GB helped me to get a lower price for those. Bottom line is while it's probably less than minimum wage on an hourly basis I do get some money from the GB.

More importantly I hope I'm demonstrating my ability to run these. There have been delays and mistakes like any group buy, but I've enjoyed the process and hope to run many more in the future. As time goes on the software I write to automate the process will improve, and that will translate into less time invested per group buy (and higher quality results.)

And if you'd like to do more, I have a online store (https://shop.clueboard.co/) and sell custom keyboards that would look fantastic with Nantucket Selectric. :D

It's fantastic to see such attention to detail and transparency in group buy administration. I've seen threads for older GBs that have gone sour, and for those who have been burnt in the past this must be greatly reassuring and a good thing for the community. Will definitely ensure I'm in on the next one! :thumb:

Hey there Skully, I (think) I PM'd you a few weeks ago about an address change, but I never heard back. I'd just like to check, in case that was missed. (If you've already printed my shipping slip, I'd be happy to repay for shipping if need be.)

Also, any chance you have a spare ergodox mod set? If at all possible, I would LOVE to add that to my order, as I just got my hands on an ergodox infinity.

Thanks!

(Oh, and if there is somewhere that all you wonderful geekhack people know of that I should be contacting skully through other than the forum, please let me know!)
