Guys, each set needs to hit 150, the main counter is how many orders they've received total...

All orders are good orders now, as far as I'm concerned.  I really hope this gets off the ground.

Any update on the extra spacebar "situation"?

If I order a 2nd spacebar kit I have to add another order which means another 5$ in shipping. Adding a 3rd spacabar kit is another 5$ for shipping.

This keeps me from buying the green spacebars in addition to my fullsize set :(

Someone raised the same question on MassDrop. I've emailed them on the same. Since MassDrop is hosting this, it's their decision on how to handle it.

Ok, thank you. As long as the main set makes it I'll be happy. Extra spacebars is just a bonus  ;)

So now that this tipped can you show us the other two designs you cooked up? Or has doing mockups for the pbt sets taken all of your design energy?

Well, I also was charged for my light-grey mod set. Whether it was an automatic process or not remains the looming question :/

Emailed Massdrop to see if I could alter my order slightly. Email sent less than 12 hours after drop ends.

Get email back saying the order has already been placed and nothing can be changed. I am slightly disappointed to hear it to say the least.

I was only looking to change a green mod pack to grey.  :(

Well I had the grey set in my inventory, but based on numbers it wasn't gonna happen at the time I went to bed.

I had seen the light long before a lot of people. Just got ****ed cause of assclowns who joined extremely late.

I did, they said, they are running the numbers to see what will be produced. The money was debited for the complete order for everyone by the system automatically, this doesn't ensure that every kit will be produced. Depending on if some kit is not produced, the remaining amount will be refunded, so don't worry. We are going to try and make sure that all three kits at very least do get produced.

Well now I am pissed at Massdrop. Their customer service said they already sent the numbers and that I couldn't alter my order.

What the **** is up on their end then?

Changing order now is going to complicate things. We want to try and make all three kits happen, that way no order changes will be required. We are in the process of aggregating orders from MassDrop, Chinese proxies and any vendor that might be interested in stocking some keycaps, this is all the make sure the gray mods reach a number which we can request GMK to produce as that is the only one that is going to be problematic. In the case that the grey mods don't happen, we'll work out a way to confirm orders from all the participants.

If we are short of 1 kit to reaching the grey, I'll ask for your order to be changed :))

Well the issue is I really wanted one of each mod kit and when I saw the numbers and that grey seemed like it wouldn't drop I changed my order to try to help the drop. I really want the grey mods as well though.  :(

The problem with refunds is those who are paying with non USD credit card/paypal account will still have to pay for currency exchange difference. I hope this doesn't happen. MD should process captures manually if the decision is still not final.

They really need to update their site to accommodate multiple kit drops and to update in real time.... Those are not features that should be difficult to implement, I am a web developer so I would know.

Don't Massdrop often have a few extra sets of whatever made?  They have a big sale every now and again where they sell off the few extra sets they have made of many of the group buys.  Perhaps there are a few extra sets of this that were made?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Interested to see how this pans out - I'd be pretty surprised at this point if MD cancelled the gray mods

Then again, their system isn't designed to have multiple MOQs in a "drop"

No, the drop isn't dead. I have been approached by a US based vendor as well who would be stocking up a sizable number of kits, so if you missed out there's still a chance.

We are just aggregating all the orders from the various sources.

No, the drop isn't dead. I have been approached by a US based vendor as well who would be stocking up a sizable number of kits, so if you missed out there's still a chance.

We are just aggregating all the orders from the various sources.

how will ordering work going forward?

Probably will have to wait until the sets are made and the vendor gets her/his stock.

Still no chance at changing an order done through MD though?

I admire your persistence :p
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I will be persistent. They finally said they placed the order with GMK today and when I asked them to change my order right after the drop ended they said they already placed the order. **** that. Let me change my damn order you bastards.

I mean really how I am supposed to be okay with being lied to.

Ordered both mods - more excited for the white than the green ones tbh

If MD paid for the extra quantity to be produced that is really cool of them

If they let a vendor place a large order after the fact which is what Moz seemed to indicate above then saying they can't change orders is completely bogus.

Most likely they just want to lock people in and not deal with changes because that messes with the numbers and takes time and people to handle but you would think they could be a little flexible.

I can't comment on whether the order count that was submitted to GMK incorporates the other vendors or not, as MassDrop is handling that; but yes, their system isn't designed to handle order changes once the drop has ended, doing it for one person and denying others is unfair. For larger orders from vendors is a totally different scenario. Again, this is my understanding, not facts.

I'd just like to clarify, that the TaoBao orders, vendor orders, etc were all placed previous to the drop ending, no changes were made after the drop ended.

Order has been placed with GMK, MassDrop did manage to work out with GMK to produce all the kits that were on offer.

As MOZ said and from what I've learned, Massdrop's system prevent them from doing pretty much anything after a drop. They can't even sell extra sets if a drop is inactive.

Great news that everything will be produced (I ordered everything :) ). I really think all the detractors and comment trolls will be kicking themselves for not getting in on this when pictures of the set on actual boards will come in.
Thank you MOZ for soldiering through all the hardship this GB has endured!
