When will my board ship?

Kickstarter backers were told we'd have our boards by April (as the latest shipment option available).  People that backed for earliest delivery were told boards would ship in February.  So forgive us original backers that might be as much as 4 months behind and still not having product for not having any sympathy for those of you that came in after the fact.  You can not care about us all you want, but without us, you wouldn't even have the ability to pre-order a board.  WE funded this company, so it's 100% reasonable that we are taken care of first.  Don't like it?  Do like TL Lim suggests, and email the company for a refund.  No idea why you think you can request a refund from a forum.  I'm sick of seeing these idiotic posts.

And in the future, maybe people like you should avoid pre-orders all together, and wait for something to be established a full year before you bother ordering something.  Your entitled attitude makes me sick, and you sound like a spoiled brat.

I actually registered for the forum just to reply to this rant, I can understand your "entitlement", after all you paid in to the kick starter and gambled that it would come to be. 

However I cannot understand your hate and vitriol  for other people who purchased the product via sales rather than kickstarter, lets be frank and admit that people with so little empathy for other members of a to be community are not going to be adding much extra themselves and especially when they represent the community effort.

Yes you funded the kickstarter but in order for the product to continue to be developed then this is going to require new cash.

You, I presume got what you paid for but since the hardware is actually much less work than optimizing and maintaining the software then without continued funding, what you have now is all you will get EVER. 

If you really want just what you have and for it to be left behind as the software moves on then you should continue with your elitist attitude, however if you wish to see this product grow into more then can I suggest you limit your posts to those that are productive and in line with the professional image this endeavor deserves.

I ordered the top product with additional comms board and whilst it is still within the promised shipping period, the lack of continued communication is a little unsettling. I got an email with tracking  just after I ordered and nothing since, to be frank the minimal effort required to retain custom confidence by posting regular updates would have prevented all of these "Have you forgotten me?" posts

So rather than taking out the spite, you clearly feel, upon confused and isolated purchasers, wondering exactly what is happening perhaps you might use your kickstarter influence to improve the project's communication so people do not have to post here.

The sales/kickstart investors are only competing in your head but your negative posts can quickly remove their investment to make yours dead in the water.

If they took that guy's money then he has an equal right to expect what he has paid for, they haven't taken mine yet so until they do then I have only the right to cancel if it takes too long. That is how things should be and I agree that the effort should deal with those that have already paid before me. promises should be kept but investment demands return, kick starter or pre-sale doesn't matter only that money changed hands IMHO.
