      I did not receive my Flipbookit and can't seem to log a request to find out what the problem is

      Hi Ying Zhu, Smart Duino Surveys did not go out yet. Hang tight, we will send them soon.

      Hi. I have not received any survey or my three pack.

      Hi, it has been almost a week and I have had no one respond to my concern about not receiving a survey. I know that things must be crazy trying to fulfill orders but I would feel much more at ease if I could get a response.... Please let me know how to get a survey, as I never received one. I pledged $298 for the smart duino flipbookitts. If there is an easier way to communicate with you all, please let me know.

      Congrats to the team for all your success. I'm a smart-duino level backer and I don't remember receiving a survey or giving my mailing address. Will I be sent one or is there somewhere I can check to see if I got one? If you can point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks.

      I backed motoflip and single flipbookit, not sure when it'll arrive, now or later.

      Congratulations on your success! However, I'm also a Smart-duino level backer and definitely never received a survey. I was hoping to have the kit as a Valentine's Day gift for my husband... When will I be sent a survey, and when can I expect my kit? Thanks...

      Hi the team, always a pleasure to read about your adventures!
      Just a question for you, i absolutely don't remember about filling the survey or give any information for the shipping... how can i check ?

      I am glad things have gone so well, however, I've still not received our Fab-Five! I've got projects with kids waiting! Can you please check on this and let me know? Thanks

      I think it would be cool if you had Steampunk upgrade kits that people could buy to add to already-owned Flipbook kits, instead of having to buy a completely new Flipbook. Or maybe other sorts of customization kits.

      I received my three pack! Thank you and best of luck.

      P.S. Haven't played with it yet but look forward too it and creating my own FlipBookKit story. :)

      I'm also a backer, at the Smart-duino level. I don't see either of the notices that you mentioned below to Jonathan. But, it does say "estimated delivery: feb 2013", so I assume that these are still in progress due to the additional electronics?

      If you can give an update on these when you get a moment, I'd appreciate it. Thanks very much! (If there's a survey that I missed & still need to fill out, can you point me in that direction?)

      @Jonathan -- you might want to send a message directly (using the "Contact me" link on the right). But, if you filled out the survey you can find your response by looking on the right for your selected pledge level (in green) and then for a line like "Survey sent: 11/23/12 • Your response" at the bottom of that box, with "Your response" being a link. If you haven't responded, there should be a yellow notice at the top of every Kickstarter page saying something like "Shinymind needs information from you" with a button.

      errrr - I'm a backer but I haven't filled in any surveys. please help!
