@Nanorider Here’s a fact…every kickstarter ever done that was over 20 bucks lasted at least a year. You complaints about time are irrelevant and unfounded.
@Photorph I’ve contacted the 4 people you suggested to the best of my ability, not a single one messaged me back. They either don’t care enough to get some resolution or it’s not a big deal.
For everyone else…
This all started calling out all DIY vendors. Turns out the only people @Photorph had issues with were @longhairedboy, @LEVer & @chaka. @longhairedboy has answered every question thrown at him and @Photorph seems satisfied. @I think @chaka has answered everything asked of him, gave quick refunds to those that wanted it.
@chaka & @OllinBoardCompany has decided to ignore this conversation. I honestly cannot say I blame them.
Point by point here are my issues with the arguments in this thread…
- I’ve explained over and over that kickstarter campaigns take a long time, its normal and to be expected.
- Sure some people made incorrect, even bad, estimates on delivery timelines but I haven’t seen any evidence of theft or even dishonesty.
- LHB had some welds break, 3 years ago when everyone here was still trying to figure out how to make a good battery.
This entire industry is in its infancy, these are experimental small-batch products, this aint Walmart. Understand that and you will be a happy customer 99% of the time. Keep acting like your ordering from Amazon, then your feeling are gonna get hurt and vendors are gonna stop selling to you.
In closing. I think you (@Photorph) owe the vendors here an apology for the way you handled this. I really can’t even imagine a worse way of trying to let people know that you have some issues with Vendors. There’s a reason why your supposed to look people in the eye when you argue. By trying to keep everything anonymous you looked dishonest and petty and were incredibly offensive. When you finally started talking TO people, instead about ghosts, questions got answered.
I still feel like you should be banned for this. You haven’t said anything in this thread or in PM’s between us to make me feel any different. The only think you achieved here is to make our community look a little worse than it did yesterday. We will recover but I doubt you will ever be welcome here again.
