Anytime soon is relativ. First the USA Tour is on the line.

I will put you in the new waiting list, if you are ok with it?

Not guys, guy....

You should make the rules more explicit, like :
Rules :
1. Do NOT change any of the packaging involved. Leave the box and foam intact(!)
2....

This happens when you have implicit rules. Or might I say 'good manner' rules....

or even you have idiots as participants.

I have assumed that the free participation in this try before buy something, let the people be a little bit respectful about the thing itself...

I think that's simple how a few people use things that they do not own!

Maybe i should add to rules:
- not for cooking, eating, jumping on, or kids under 18
- wash your hands before using
- could damage your fingers or hands if you use it excessive
- don't put it in your backdoor
- make you want more switches and boards
- could disclose that your are an asshole
- ....

I should give this thing to a manager (like you did it), than i could be more relaxed.

Please remove me from the queue, i think i already know everything the try boards could teach me.
Thank you and sorry for the trouble.

Very sorry to see how the parts are shipped. This is awful, can imagine how someone would lose interest in organizing such projects. When will there be decided if the boards go usa?
If someone in line ships to me, mail me instead of pm. Mail I read more often.

The packet was sent yesterday.
One brown switch was without any tactile feedback anymore. I checked it and it missed a little part of the stem.
Of course, the switch has been replaced.

@Jmneuv - no trouble, your are welcome.

Hey man, it came without a box, and some bubble wrap that was pretty borked. The post office had run out of bubble wrap, so this was the best I could do (there was bubble wrap in the letter)

I did not say that you took the box or something like that.... But I think it should be shipped in a box anyway.

Hey, if this is still ongoing. I would love to try this out, have yet to try a lot of switches on an actual keyboard.
I'm from NL, and actually not an asshole. ;)

Currently I have no status about the item. Maybe they were lost on the way to USA....

But I will add you anyway.

Is this still on? I'd be glad to be in the loop. I'm in France.

Last contact to TheQsanity was 29.08.2013. Until now they have not been here.

Still hoping that they are not lost...

Let's hope they show up again.
If yes, can you add me to the list?
heissler, Germany.

Thanks in advance :-)

Well, I have contacted TheQsanity to be over MP and e-mail, and so far no answer from him, even though he seems to be visiting the site regularly.

Hmm.

If they really happen to be lost I could help you put together a new set.
I have a couple of spare G80 PCBs and could throw in some switches (black, blue, clear, ergo clear).

Thank you for your kind offer.

Although, I really don't know if there is any interest left for those kind of projects.
The section "Try before you buy" isn't very active at all atm...

To my great surprise, I must say that the gaming pcb's had arrived to me 2 weeks ago. No info, but they are returned.

Nice to see those reappear !
Not sure if you're planning a new tour after what happened, but if you do I would love to try the switches (Barbie, France).

I've got a spare G80 PCB and I'd be happy to supply parts of it if more testers are needed.

Same here, I can provide a PCB (from IvanIvanovich's stabilizer GB) and a few spare switches (blacks, reds, browns, clears, tactile grey, greens).

Awesome. I can provide a g80 pcb as well.

I can throw some Nixdorf blacks at this if it's going to start going around again.
