So I will be moving within the next 3-ish months to an undecided location... so my address will not be what I put on the original form.

I've decided it will be easier to just use a friend to ship the board to, so how can I go about changing my shipping address? Should I wait until actual shipping is being charged?

I don't want to pay the invoice and then have it shipped to my current apartment to avoid it getting lost to the void :P

The current invoice is only for the price of the board.  Shipping has not been invoiced yet (as stated in the OP, shipping charge is separate).  You can PM me to specify your preferred shipping address.

so... the plan (according to OP) is that these will ship at the soonest - early June, and at the latest - early August?

Not really an update, but since it's been quiet, I thought I'd share that over 70% of invoices have been paid so far, according to our order spreadsheet.  ninjadoc is traveling due to a family health situation and doesn't have regular access to a computer until he returns by next week, but I've been passing along any questions I see asked here.

Got very worried because all of a sudden my invoice went from the top of the page to the second page. Anywho mines all paid up now!

Trying to pay some other invoices first, PAX and AB hotels on top of my Switch preorder being charged and GBs have made this a fun week.

I'll get the payment in by the deadline, though.

I'm guessing you have only one con to pay for this month, though. Two weeks after PAX is Anime Boston and my friends left it to me to front the money for the hotel rooms for both cons  :-\. Gonna bust some kneecaps if they don't pay up  :))

Maybe I'll run into ya at PAX?

Even though I live in Boston, for a few years in a row now I've missed Pax East because tickets sell out insanely fast (large percent to scalpers, it seems) :(

is there a % we are shooting for? like, does everyone have to pay their invoices in order for this to go through? just the 57?

Everyone who ordered has to pay by the deadline.  Unpaid orders will be cancelled.  That's how group buys work.  After payment deadline, collected funds are transferred to manufacturer along with the summaries of parts to produce and an order is placed to have those parts made.

We'll distribute them via random.org lottery as with the previous few that were unclaimed.  But there's actually only a handful of those left unpaid at this point :)

yeah, what i am asking is what % is MOQ? or did we already hit that with 75%

I think the MoQ's been achieved, yes.  If I remember correctly, ninjadoc posted something about producing in batches of about 60 at a time back during the IC thread, which may or may not be the case still, but I'm pretty sure we're good with the current number of people who've joined the GB and already paid.

They'll be packaged in a custom foam padded box, which itself is packaged in another foam padded box. I don't think this will be like the LZ-FE/Cheat shipping.

I hope I am not asking a stupid question, this is my first build and this is probably not the best place for this post, new to geekhack. What kind of stabilizers can I put on this keyboard, it appears that on the initial page that cherry stabilizers are being used? Can Costar stabs be used? Also I am assuming to purchase plate mounted switches. Thank you.

PCB mounted cherry stabilizers

Use PCB mounted switches. Although you can use plate mounted switches, PCB mounted switches will be much more sturdier

Unpaid orders will be cancelled--there are no "slots" (since there's no MoQ).
