      Good for them, maybe theirs will actually work, not that bullshit that numbnuts put out.

      Look everyone a Chinese company copied them and I’m not shedding a tear

      when i first filled out the form, months ago, i wrote them and they did respond to me that i filled out everything correctly, so they DO respond....

      i dont know if they will respond to everyone, but im glad they did for you.

    4. Dana Jo 2 days ago

      Interesting... they literally JUST responded - I guess they are monitoring this thread closely - I wondering why...

    5. Robert Roeder 2 days ago

      Phil Watt, still want to come up and have you help me get my Tiko working. I can be reached by email at rcroeder @ az-technology dot com

    6. Dana Jo 2 days ago

      So I submitted the form by the deadline and got no response. I have since submitted three different emails asking for confirmation that they received and still no response - has anyone gotten any response or confirmation from BDO since the deadline?

      I did not submit...
      In the end, if all the assets come to a negative...
      you still owe them (lol)....

      People have been submitting forms since nov. 2017.

      Waiting for the moneyzzz 🤑

    10. James Prankard on

      Wow. I've just read this after a few months. I'm late to the party and the formal email from BDO slipped through my emails due to the unknown sender.
      And it's pretty poor it took years for this to fail and we get a month to submit a form with most of the information they already have.
      Shame TIKO didn't have the sense to make a formal post and let everyone know publicly...
      At least it was only $20 (although I suspect it might be more for the very few that actually did submit).

    11. Jerry Bocci on

      Would I fill out a single form & email it with a couple of attachments, for (maybe) $20? Hell, yes! I'm not so "proud" as to turn down free money! I do more than that to *give away* money! (After all, I *AM* a Kickstarter backer....)

      As a matter of fact, this pays for the THINGY, a campaign that seems to have completely disappeared (potentially because the woman who controls the KS account is now divorced from the engineer who would have been making the things... but that's just speculation.)

      @Martin, I did not fill out the form. I decided that the amount of effort to figure out the form was not worth the small amount I would get back.

      @RoyT, all the one who think it will actually work have already done it. At most they could send a copy to their credit card companies who probably then looked into the situation and told them to go pound sand.

    13. RoyT on

      Wow, no one has invoked their rights since May 23. Is common sense taking hold? Probably not.

    14. Slyde on

      i'm expecting my cut to be around 1.2 million.

      i've already purchased a mansion and a yacht based on that assumption, so i better be at least in the ballpark....

      Sooo... The long wait begins. I bet those who sent their form will receive... «finger counting» About USD 3.14 each? Because I like pie.

    16. Phillip Sabolta on

      @Martin Ive bought myself a printer since too. But considering he was one of the few that did receive one I was wondering has the design etc lived up to anything it was set out to do.

      @Philip Sabota. Let him be happy with his miniature 3D Tiko printer.
      In the mean time I have bought a Deltaprinter with a way larger print volume.
      Top quality printer.
      In this comment section there should not be place for 'disaster-tourists'.

    18. Phillip Sabolta on

      @Phil Watt - side-tracking from the disappointment that this project is, how does the Tiko perform these days? You seem to be snatching up as many as you can. You manage to get something decent out of it?

      (But for the curious, they're referring to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act: )

      I am not related to the debtor in any way. To the best of my knowledge. I sometimes wonder which Act they refer to; there are a lot of Acts out there, many of them with a section 4. Bah, legalese.

    21. phil watt on

      @Martin, no circling here, I was one of the few lucky ones. I got mine.

    22. James Whalen on

      Really, $20? That's best case? Thanks Tiko team.

      @Roy, Ricardo-reis, Tamarinen, Mac, Lubomir Plzik, Phill Watt, Norman Fair, Ricardo Armiento and Andres Aquilar what have you cicled at point 5, 'I am' or 'I am not' ?

    25. Andres Aguilar

      From the update, "The goal is to reach a 10-15% refund, however this is only a goal. The realized amount could vary substantially. " That's MAYBE $20, so Rickard is right, also they pretty much said no refund at all on the shipping

      Rickard Armiento on

      Alright, I did submit the form today...

      What saddens me in all this is that now they'll sell off some inventory and IP and in the best possible scenario maybe I'll get $20 back and that will be it.

      I would have been much more happy if they had instead open-sourced/declared as public domain every piece of design and every line of code they wrote. That way at least something good and useful would have come out of this experience.

      Lets keep a close eye on the end report that comes out from the bankruptcy handling, especially with regards to who (if any) bought the IP and code. (And if that turns out to be the old Tiko actors under a different name, I'm going to be pissed.) If no one bought the IP / code, does that mean that it is abandoned?...

      @Lubomir Plzik
      Yes, witness is someone who can sign that you've filled in the form correctly. I asked a colleague.

      Creditor ("your name" in the example) is you.

      @Alex Tutusaus, the best part is they are quoting Terms of Use that were no longer in effect during the Tiko campaign.

      @Mac: How do I contact you?

      Lubomir Plzik on

      thank you for help. I went through document, but I mean the part above the "General proxy". There is a "Witness" and I do not know who should put signature there? On the right side there is a creditor, there should be my signature am I right?

      @philwatt can you send me a message?

      The last part is for companies or if you want to use a proxy. Most things are explained in the document located at (linked to from ).

      Hello everyone... Do someone know how is mentioned point 5? What and in which case should be circled? And in the end of the document, there is a witness. My question is who should be signed there? Who is a witness? Thank you.

    35. ricardo-reis on

      hi guys,
      did anyone get any answers from the trustee? i've been trying for more than a week to get a simple confirmation from them, regarding the files i've submitted, just to know if it's all ok or not, and so far, no answer at all..
      i've some questions regarding the form, on how to fill in the points 3. and 4.A.
      any ideas would be appreciated.

    36. RoyT on

      Eek, make that June 25

    37. RoyT on

      Tiko declared bankruptcy a long time ago. You can file as a creditor but deadline is June 35.

      See Tamarien’s posts from June 7.

      You didn't get the BDO e-mail at May 22? It's from there. The attachment they mention is available at , but the documents you want are available at .

      @Tamarinen Hello I search in vain for the attachment you mentioned. Can you provide it? Even if it seems pointless, I would want to fill it. Please where can I find it?

      "Attached to this letter is a notice to all creditors informing creditors that all proof of claim forms (with supporting documentation) must be submitted to the Trustee no later than June 25, 2018 in order to be eligible for a dividend distribution."

    43. RoyT on

      Is there a deadline when to submit the creditor form?

      Anyone can give an explanation what to circle under pint 5 ?

    45. Kalus on

      My opinion: Any further actions about TIKO are a total waste of time. Even this post...
      I am happy with my CR10s and hope to get the BuildOne this year.
      @allBackers i wish you the best.

      Anyone remember the email that we received asking for us to pay the 55 for shipping? Where are the records?

      Make sure you submit the value as CAD$ at the exchange rate of 1.271 which will give you CAD$297.41.
