At this point I'm fairly certain this board is gonna end up as a (ugly) display piece. Received mine without the logo and haven't received any follow up yet. Haven't actually tested the PCB but judging from the reports here I'm 90% sure there's gonna be a problem...

Hello all, I spoke to Eve on behalf of the Moon GB.
[1] Per Eve's response, he is currently CNC'ing the replacement stripes.
[2] As for the PCB, he is also waiting to buy JJ's replacement PCB.

I am not sure on the timeline, but I will be glad to give any updates if there is any. (I am not the GB runner).

Edit: Eve's is a not a native English speaker, I am writing this update on his behalf.

Updates on the pcb timeline: At least 3 weeks more to go for  the PCB manufacturer to deliver. Since the replacement qty is small, smaller MOQs are shafted to the end of the production queue since July.
Eve has no intention to run away from this nor deny any responsibilities for moon GB. He sincerely apologizes for this mishap.
He has been busy with the recent GBs so far (I am pretty sure you guys can tell from the GBs) and has been trying to source for replacement PCBs.
He promises to conclude the buy properly and told you guys not to worry.

Thank you for the update :D Patience is one thing, but patience is so much harder when left in the dark.

I could feel you. Thus I went to Eve directly to see what I can help.

Are there any news regarding other pieces? My WKL top had defects and requires replacement.

Another possibility: this PCB group buy just went live:
https://shop.hineybush.com/product/h87a-gb

EVE still around? Would it be possible to just get a refund on the value of the PCB and we source an alternative ourselves such as the group buy listed above?

This arrangement would be me overstepping as "someone concerned" over the gb runner. I can't make such decisions on their behalf. Best to rope in Jay to the picture.
I will try to ask for updates, or keep the group updated if there are any news.

Sorry for not being clearer, the question was aimed at EVE, or failing that jay if he's still lurking around here :P

Anyone here had the issue that the pcb just shows up as 2 hid devices after resetting it? How do I get it to show up as atmega again?

has puddsy gotten an award for person most involved with things hes not involved in at all, yet?

Looks the same but it's just red and it doesn't have the SMD stuff on it... anyway, updates are good

My PCB was DOA as well. How are people securing replacement PCBs?

The original rma listing was sent out from jay some time back. I'm not the runner or the machinist, I dont have the full details.

These kind of contacts were the sketchiest on the original board. Hopefully they're better this time around.

I have spoken to Eve, and he will be sending me all Mira and Moon PCB replacements. I will try to get the list of names and address from those that requires replacement.
Once I receive them, I will invoice shipping cost out before delivering them to you guys.
Cheers.

Paper/rubber washers work well to isolate the stab screw from the switch pad.

I will follow up with Eve on your top case.
