@Tim I didn't mean to cause a big mess on here,
Sorry Jon.
But if they are batching these shipments by country Then it would make sense that I should already have mine. The majority of the orders are from the US with a good chunk in europe as well and a few more spaced out around the world. So it would make sense that most of the bulk shipments have been to America. And since my invoice number is so close to the shipped counter. It would be a safe assumption to believe that mine should have been shipped by now, Especially when I payed the extra crap load for express shipping (which we were told weeks ago would go out first). I understand how hard it is to get a new product to market. I'm sorry I caused a panic on here.

Honestly I'm fine waiting another week or 2 but It just gets aggravating seeing the counter go up and then seeing "in production". I just really want to get my box and start printing. I'm happy the counter is at least going up and at a good rate.

@Adam
I'm in the same boat. My number HAS been passed over (ordered June 21, invoice number 1279, order number in the "new system" 1333). I was SO excited when it was hovering just under 1200 hundred, like waiting your turn at a roller coaster, just a few heads ahead of me. Then I woke up the next day, my number has been BLASTED past so I excitedly looked for my ship number. I'm still listed as "Production" not transit, not packing. So, back to the roller coaster analogy, it's like they just stopped the line, and let a foreign tourist group cut in front of me. Not one, not a dozen, but a couple hundred. Which is FINE if it's the kids with cancer, hell, they might not live long enough to get through the line (it's been almost a year). But right now, I'm not seeing any wheel chairs, so I am seeing red.

@Richard - You are leaving out the many, many orders that were temporarily created as temporary shopping carts, etc. The numbers do not track together that closely. New orders are in the tens of thousand range, but we have perhaps a quarter of that in actual active orders. So, try to relax. We've given you all a production schedule based on your order date. If you see that we have said we've finished with a particular date range (like 2012) then drop customer_support@makible.com an email.

@Adam - Your order is probably in the express drop shipment batch from mid 2013 that we are putting together now.

@Tim J - Thanks!

@jon no no, I'm cool, just feels like a bit of a roller coaster, like I said, that's all. I over extended the analogy...but, if a only a quarter of the actual orders are shipping orders, shouldn't mine have shipped a long time ago? I mean, invoice number/anything would mean I was skipped more than 200 shipments ago, closer to 800 shipments ago if only 1/4 of the orders are "real". (I do NOT believe that's the case, btw--just doing bad math poorly). Unless the ship tracker is listing printers shipped, not orders shipped, that would make a bit more sense as some orders are multiprinter (schools, for example).

'When will then be now?'
'Soon.'

Just received my box today in Norway ;-) everything looks good. some flash on the moulded parts, but its moulded in China and approved by "QC" hehe .... As a small comment, why don't you put in a printed makibox M logo as a sample part ;-)
Thank's and looking forward to the assembly.

@Jon That sounds awesome! I'll keep my fingers crossed. Either way I'd like to say Good Job on the Makibox and Sorry for getting pissed it was unjustified. You're shipping out boxes and thats what counts.

@Richard - It lists printers shipped, so there is around 100 order difference I would guess. My point about the numbers not being equal was that it isn't not a linear relationship, there were periods where we got a lot of people poking around and ones where people were making orders. Just check the outlined shipping dates based on your order date. If you see you have been missed, write to customer_support@makible.com to let us know.
