Hey @dan and co, suggestion for when you are really gearing up to get shipping going (on top of the million other things you already have on your plates of course!)
It would be great to know where we are in line for shipping and generally have a sense of how fast the line is being processed.
Basically I’d love a way to know what progress on shipping is like and be able to make an intelligent guess on when I’ll get my unit. I ask as I am a late purchaser (early January) which means your June window is not for me and “by the end of the year” is a pretty big window in which I have no idea where I stand in the wait time scheme of life.
A potential implementation might be: “you are currently 1,237 in line to receive your pro forge with filter” text somewhere on the account page, with a display of recent shipping data (maybe a bar chart with weekly units shipped?)
If the info in shipping needs to be kept under wraps, I get it. But if not, it might be a good way to let us late bloomers have a sense of when we might receive our boxes of awesome without your having to make specific predictions that invite user anger if not met.
Even being able to make a rough estimate would be so helpful - getting it by mid August opens a huge range of uses for a project in September, but a September/October arrival means that project will have to be forge-free, and if I know that rough window in June when shipping is in full swing I can plan accordingly…
