      Micheal doesn't seem to respond to messages on facebook or twitter or from the Harvestgeek website, He is active on Reddit under the username " wangyo " ,

      Maybe we can pressure him to respond on the project status if enough of us contact him directly in public view to get him to fulfill the project deliverables or refund our contributions,this is really ridiculous !

      Hello, any updates? I'm putting together an aquaponics project and would love to incorporate HarvestGeek into it so I'm hoping that it's ready for shipping soon.

      @Mike what is going on?

      @everyone who pledged: if we don't get some kind of info SOON we all have to file complaints with Kickstarter. I sent them an e-mail allready and they replied some generic crap about some projects taking longer than expected bla bla (I'm fine with delays) I'm not fine with Mike not responding. I think we got screwed and we need to take action. Everyone file complaints and request you money back. Mike had an obligation! He did not fullfill it!

      Any updates since the move? Is this project still a go?

    5. Leonid Khodjayev on

      I believe this project failed.

    6. Jesse Hawkins on

      Please provide an update.

    7. James Bilodeau on

      Also, if these do ship soon, you should send out requests for shipping addresses for those that have moved, like myself. I do not think what you have in your records reflects my current address. Thanks

      Any new updates? It seemed like things were moving forward with the last update in September?

      "The cases and the LCD units are the last pieces were waiting for prior to assembly. The lead time the LCD mfr for those is end of October and will then probably take a couple weeks to be couriered. "

      So is this realistic or not? If so, you should have those LCD's in hand now.

      @Mike, I wouldn't hold your breath. I suspect we have been taken for a bit of a ride here.

      What's going on with this project? Will we ever see a product?

    11. Evolved Agriculture Creator on

      Thanks for commenting about Almond+, it looks like a really great piece of hardware and in the future we will likely look into integrating with it, and possibly even replacing our base station with it. It is quite a bit more expensive than our base and all the details on integration have not been released yet, so only time will tell.

      Christopher Meier on

      Would it be possible to: drop the base station, focus on the sensor hardware, and have backers buy an Almond+ instead? That may shorten your hw development time, hardware costs, and allow you to invest elsewhere (web, sensors, etc).

      Love the graphics on option number one, but absolutely have to be able to read the display so I vote for option number 2.

    14. Liz Spain on

      It's been two months since you posted any update, and 6 months since posting anything of substance (pics, video, etc). If you mis-budgeted this project and it's dead, please admit to it. These things happen and it's not good to leave your supporters hanging.

      Karl Rixon on

      It would be really good to get some updates on what is happening here. If there are issues delaying the hardware, it would be far better to communicate them, because I get the feeling people are rapidly losing confidence in you.

      Clayton Thornton on

      I know you apologized for your level of communication before but if you're failing as a company, a little communication in and of itself will bring a lot of forgiveness. So just talk to us and keep us in the loop.

      Any info guys? I've had one backed project that's failed and have gone silent, another that's stopped contact after promising me they'd send a unit out last month.. And now this one that's being slow to update , 7 months past it's expected shipping. I can't back any more kickstarter projects now, my confidence has dropped, even more so after the security breach. Please guys, don't let us down, keep us updated with what's happening!

      Tim Wright on

      Despite emailing 3 times in the last 6 months I've had no reply about when I can expect hardware - or indeed anything in return for my money. And now the website harvestgeek.com appears to have gone down. What's going on? This was such a good idea but I'm getting to the point where I feel a bit misled...

      Michael D Bell on

      I agree with James, before I backed this project I specifically asked about standalone operation. I was told it would run this way. I would very much prefer to not upload any data, anytime, anywhere. Please let us know what is going on. Not near enough updates. Is this gonna work?

    23. James Bilodeau on

      Why is the website development holding back the hardware from shipping? I understand that the vision for the product was to have the information directed back to harvestgeek.com where we are given detailed information from the sensors, but is there not standalone software that we could at least work with until the website is up and running?

      Just noticed that updates are being posted to the blog. For those like me that didn't know it existed, here is the link:

      I'm getting worried. This has happened with other projects that have yet to deliver.

      Dates get pushed back. New dates come and go without an update. Facebook page is a ghost town. Now the excuses begin to show up outside of Kickstarter on half assed product pages.

      Hey Mike, can we please get an update either on Kickstarter, or your blog -- or both? You're coming up on a year since successful backing, so can you start updating regularly?

      Here's some topics that you can cover:

      What have you been doing with our money?
      How's the hardware coming along?
      When's the website going up?
      When will the SensorStation+ get completed?
      When will the HydroStation get completed?
      Is the AutomationStation completed?
      When will everything be open source?

      I guess we are supposed to go over to the blog to find out info from now on.....

      Posted on Dec 5th - "November has come and gone and we are into the first week of December. We are nearly done with the testing of the units, but there is still a few things we have to cross off our list, primarily more range testing and lux calculation correction, before we can start shipping units. We will keep you posted with our progress as it changes!"

      So it looks like we may get this in time for the spring planting season

      Christmas is nearly here, how are we looking?

    29. James Bilodeau on

      Any new updates? Last update said most rewards would be shipped prior to Christmas. Just curious if you are still on schedule for that delivery . :)

    30. Mich S. on

      Just researched my emails from HarvestGeek and found the one about the t-shirts and how Mike is behind schedule -- likely December 2013. So answered my own question...

    31. Mich S. on

      Should I have received my T-shirt by now? Estimated delivery says May...

    32. Jesse Hawkins on

      Looking forward to the updates!

    33. Evolved Agriculture Creator on

      Lots of updates in the works, including hardware upgrades and pictures of our pre-manufacture run of the product. Stay tuned.

      Been pretty quiet, as usual. How's the new team? It's coming up on 6 mos since you were successfully backed. Has there been any progress that you can share with us? I am really looking forward to getting these into my garden.

      The site is throwing some rails errors. Bug or feature?

    45. BertDB on

      3,5K away from the stretch goal, with only 5 hours to go!
      Should be feasible, no ? :)

      Dani Colston on

      The reason the sensorstation+ is at the higher pick n mix pledges is due to high cost of Co2 sensor, which is understandable. Regards to an EU /Uk automationstation; Evolved agriculture are still looking into this so won't be possible through kickstarter, but may be possible through their website n the near future.

      Hope the answesr help Andrew.
