Wow. You people need to learn to have a little patience. He had family issues and has been dealing with extremely severe weather. It's just a shift knob. He's working as fast as he can and is keeping us updated. Calm down. People act as if you're waiting on a fully built motor.

I work in procurement professionally, and just a touch of advice. No one should be giving anyone a hard time about familial issues which have an impact on time frames. Those are things we have zero control over, so get over it. However, when you supply anything, don't give your customers expectations that you even conceivably cant meet. As soon as they have a date or a lead time in their minds, its impossible to back them off that. Give yourself a window to work within, and never tell anyone anything set in stone until your sure of it. On all of the last group buys, the knobs came quite a bit later than planned, so I personally thought the original date of the week before Christmas wasnt going to be met regardless of the other outstanding issues. Moving forward just detail that the lead time is like X-Y weeks, contingent upon your supply chain, and you will update them as soon as possible with new information. Even if it is a side job, and even if they are available at a price below normal retail value, you are still supplying a service, and people will have expectations regardless. Hold your own suppliers accountable to their deadlines, and keep the customers informed as such.

Regardless, I am excited to receive mine when it does come!

Unexpected medical issues - holidays - abnormal weather patterns

While I would like to have my order already installed and be done with it... stuff happens.

You were not part of the group buy.

Are you shipping them out to us directly, or are you sending them all to forman for them to sort and ship like last time?

About 11 more months, the first post on the first page says they will be here just in time for the holidays.

Hey Derrick - If we emailed you directly to purchase a knob, will you be sending an email once shipped? I'm assuming these batches (non group) won't be sent to Forman.


Thanks

Yes, exactly.

If purchased through this group buy it'll go through Forman. If purchased through me separately it'll be shipped directly and you'll get an email stating such.

A quick note for everyone in the group buy. We're very sorry about all the delays in this order being fulfilled. We know Anarchy Motive has been transparent in revealing the delays and letting everyone know about the bumps in the road they've had. We've been extremely fast in shipping the knobs out once we receive them. And the latest we know is that the knobs will ship out at the end of this week. So you can expect for them to be shipped out to you by the end of the following week. However, we would like to make sure everyone on the list knows that if in the event that you're looking for a refund, please let us know and the option is available. Please PM us if needed.

We thank you all for your participation and continued patience. We truly apologize for the lengthy delay. It's been out of our hands, but we understand your frustration.

-Team Forman
