Gotta get those $195 sets sold.

In all seriousness, I'm sure the clerical work is the last thing to be done. The peace of mind would be nice, though.

If I'm as lucky with being one of the first 100 as I am with artisans, my order will be shipped out last then lost in transit.

I'd bet he didn't ship any today. He has been saying he'd ship for the past two weeks now. No one has said they got shipping conf.  I know he spent some time today on the faux-BKE dome stuff; maybe he didn't have time for this. I just really want my set and am starting to be bummed by the delays. I am usually patient, but with group buys, I feel that merchants have an obligation to ship out the merchandise within a few days of receiving it from the manufacturer. Edit: especially when it's a vendor, rather than just a community member doing it for the love. I really didn't start to get bummed about this until today -- I think the two weeks is hard to swallow. :-[

Agreed.  I just don't get it.  There's several "I'm working on it today/Just did it" messages, and yet nothing has actually gotten done as far as I can tell.

I mean... I don't want to tell you how to run your business but... you're running a business.  We've had our money tied up in this set for over 6 months at this point and the hard part (manufacturing) is finished.  Let's get those sets over the finish line and into people's hands  :thumb:

Like $50 meaning what? I paid $40.06
I guess that's due to the GMK tray size.

Ordered a white and a gray set. I live in Germany, like my profile to the left states :D DHL Express you say? this is no way "express" shipping, if it takes the guy 2 weeks to ship it. they would be already here if as you state express dhl was to be used. oh wait, he didnt ship the sets yet.

ordered two sets of one grey, one white

given it took me more than two months to achieve a dead simple task of changing the shipping address to my new place by PM-ing him on reddit for lengthy amount of time,
this complete lack of communication and comical amount of shipping delays does not surprise me at all. it's confirmed he does not even check official support email inbox.

no matter what product they bring, my money will never go through keyclack nor JC, just my humble opinion purely based on how i treated as a customer.

also good luck if you have to change your shipping address at the last minute because oh boy, i forgot to count how many times I've reminded him to update mine.

The reason that he's using DHL for some country because he's avoiding package losing, not for the faster delivery time.

Same here, I just want my keys and then I'm done with KC.  I kinda sorta understand (but don't defend) the M65 situation, I think there's a lot of packaging required.  But this?  Throw them in a box and get them out.  Why sit on these for so long?

Because he's got more projects that have been waiting longer. I'm sure Oblivion is in the queue to go out.

I could buy that if he didn't already have several "working on it right now!" messages in this thread.

I will forget about this if he gets them out early next week. I'm stikm going to buy some of those domes. And I would still rather buy a set through him than Massdrop. I have much more faith in his ability to actually get us the right stuff we paid for. And the updates about production are better than what we'd get with MD. As i said, im bummed because i want my set. But as long as this gets resolved soon, I'll be a happy camper.

Ordered 6 set with some child kits. I am from Hong Kong. It costs about $100 for shipping. What can I say? I just dont wanna see the retail one shipped faster than us.

Yeah, in my opinion it doesn't create a good feeling in GB participants when the retail kits are even available for purchase before all GB sets are shipped.

That's just bad business. It was quoted on the site that 2-3 days before shipping was to be expected; if that can't be delivered on, why even make the promise in the first place?

I'm sure he's busy, but I'd rather hear what's actually happening, rather than what he thinks we want to hear.

GB runner(s) received the caps some 3 years ago and still have a couple that need to be shipped out.

I know the wait sucks, I'm waiting for several GB's myself that were supposed to ship out already, but it will be worth it. I don't doubt that jchan will deliver.

A GB that ran in 2013 or 2014 and is still finishing up some orders as of October 2017. We have a little more time until GMK Oblivion becomes that delayed. ;p

I'm used to group buy delays; massdrop's planck and xda canvas (lol at Godspeed and GMK Laser), and Ultimate Hacking Keyboard. Getting something within a 6 month timeframe is considered good news to me! I'm not surprised at all by Oblivion getting pushed back a little while all of the other group buys jchan has / had to ship that are or were still ongoing, especially M65-A and 1965.

@jchan: not all of us are so impatient. Thank you for running this group buy and helping to make MOQ happen with the extra orders.

It should create a good feeling to know you saved $60 more than retail buyers per kit and retail buyers are not getting their sets any faster.

This is one of the best looking GMK sets of all time and I will be surprised if it doesn't sell out of stock.

Hydro, and many other group buys that were hosted on Keyclack (new or old) have worked like this.

Hydro over a year, we purchased extra, and had the extras available throughout the buy (even up until and after delivery).

---

We'll be finished with Oblivion on Friday, but some packages may get sent "tracking" on Friday, but will be most likely given to whichever service is used next week. I believe most at Fedex.

Cheers.

I know we all want to get our kits but lets cut JC some slack. If it wasn't for him buying up the remaining orders to retail on keyclack this GB would have never hit MOQ to begin with.
