Where in the RS line were you?

Wed Jun 13, 2012 9:05 am

Where are we up to in the line for receiving Pis from RS? Lots of people have already commented that they expressed an interest very early on and have received theirs. I expressed an interest on 3rd March and was wondering how close I am.

I expressed my interested on the 4th of March and was invited to order 2 weeks ago.
It sounds like you've been left behind or your invitation got lost somehow.

Expressed an interest on 3rd March
Got invite to order on 17th May (and ordered that day)
Delivered 7th June

I'd say you've been left behind - have you been getting regular weekly emails from RS?

This is what I thought although I still get update emails from RS.

The last email I received from RS said they were going allow us to see our position in the queue. Is that the last email they sent? If I have stopped receiving their emails then this is a sure sign my order email got lost!

I would suggest you contact [email protected] when I was inquiring about my invite status she was able to confirm my email address and which customers they were dealing with.
I'm sure if your invite got lost (check your spam folder if applicable) she should be able to sort you out with another invite request..

Thanks.
Armed with the details I got from this thread I fired an email off to RS and got the "look at the FAQ" reply.
I quoted the message reference number and resent it earlier this morning. I'll give them a day to reply to that then try again with a [email protected] email address.

Did you order any accessories with your RPi? Last time I looked EU power supplies were out of stock, which may be holding up some orders.

On release night after the sites came back online I got my interest registered. Not long after I was allowed to order and they took my credit card info. However RS halted the all shipping until standards testing was complete and my Pi never arrived. A week ago I finally got another invite to buy a Raspberry Pi but they had to take my credit card info again. So I'm hoping the second order will come through soon.

Despite the initial problems, the demand and production hurdles have been so exceptional I understand the huge undertaking this has been and applaud the hard work Raspberry Team and RS has done for getting this all going as quickly as they did with the hurdles they had to overcome.

If you don't hear it enough. Thanks to all of you! Gene

Thank you Gene - we really, really appreciate it when someone comes out with something like that, (especially in a thread about orders)!

I registered interest on March 9th, but I haven't heard from RS except news updates. Should I contact them or wait some more?

What was the last news update you received from RS. Mine was about the posibility of allowing people to see their position on line. Have there been more since that one?

Thanks

The last email I got from RS was on 30/05:

Dear customer,

As you will know by now, many people have been invited to place their orders. We know the big questions you are asking are: “where am I in your queue?” and “when will I be able to place my order?” We are currently working to give you an indication of where you are in the queue and likely delivery times and hope to share this with you shortly. We are also increasing our website capacity to enable us to invite you to place your order as soon as possible.

While you wait, why not check out just what the Raspberry Pi model B board is capable of by watching our compliance engineers have some fun demonstrating Quake, or see a Raspberry Pi-powered XBMC Media Centre. Also, find out what happened when Eben and Liz visited Maker Faire in the US.

Don’t forget to give us your views on DesignSpark and as always we will be regularly updating our FAQs

Thank you for your continued interest and patience.

If you ordered with RS I'd wait some more. This is what [email protected] emailed me:
We've located a registration in your name on 2012-03-06 at 10:12:30. You will be in the next batch of invitations we send out, which is likely to be next week.
Obviously, I don't know how big that batch is or how many orders were made between mine and yours but I'm sure they're coming. :)
