I don't disagree that it's been civil, but it seems like there is a thing that happens where someone checks in, says "Uh, any updates?" then the vendors check in and give an update. That's fine, but it seems to be that being proactive rather than reactive is the key to a good project. I'm not directing those remarks at this project in particular, but in general. 

 

I do think the communication for this project is trending upward, maybe 7/10 territory when all is said and done.

You're right, of course, but the ideal scenario presupposes that a retailer (in this case, Massdrop and Ed) are in constant communication and have control of the manufacturing process and schedule.  As someone has already stated, most of the time. the retailer has little to no control of the vendor, and no real information re. production and only a little more about shipping.  A lot of the time, you get what you get, when you get it.  And if you yell and shout, well, your requests are very likely to end up on the bottom of the pile, particularly if you are a smaller retailer.  I do know retailers who insist on things like being the first vendor to be shipped, but these are typically very large, or otherwise very powerful, retailers who buy a great deal.  

 

I dunno, I've gotten used to anything MTO or MTM being months late.  So, you'd better be buying something classic and timeless (tm).

May I float a request?  Probably just me but there might be others: depending on the shipping date and method, I might have to give a different address.  Could you please give us a heads up when they're ready to ship, so that I have a chance to amend it if needed.  It would be terrible not to get the ties after all this anticipation!

I'll just open the box on Christmas, works for me.

As Ed said, they're shipping very soon. If you need an address change you should put that in with Massdrop support at massdrop.com/support and they'll take care of you. 

 

If anyone is looking for more info on the status of this project, don't forget that the main conversation thread is happening on the Massdrop site - that said, Ed's done a great job of giving helpful updates here as they become available. Looking forward to my tie as well!

Well, the gods are truly against me: i have nine different deliveries; including this one, seven directly or indirectly linked to SF. All  have been delayed/ deferred etc. I depart tonight for the travels till the new year.

 

My wife might serve me divorce papers when she sees the total loot!

First order of business when the men are the shopaholics: deliver to the office. 😀

A shorter answer would have been "no".

 

"Soon" doesn't mean anything.  I just needed to know.  Two days or a week makes a difference, as does the method of shipping.

If you PM me with specific info on what dates the address would need to be changed and what the new address is, I can provide you with a more concrete answer beyond "soon" :)

 

I wasn't provided with any specific details, so it's hard for me to give any specific advice - when the ties would arrive depends on where you're located. That's why I suggested contacting support, but if you'd rather PM we can do that instead. 

post #386 of 504

I just want to know when they arrive with you. If possible.  Then I can amend, or not, quickly.  Sorry for the diversion.

fwiw, Ian, it might be good to either link or repost some info here just so that any information, particularly about delays, is on as many channels as possible.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

right now, it looks like they will reach Massdrop on Friday, hopefully. UPS decided to have the ties take the scenic route to NYC and pass through Philly. I'd like to think that they will be headed to NYC overnight and delivered to me tomorrow, but maybe UPS sends them to their Tennessee hub first confused.gif
