      Has there been any response since Feb?

    10. Harold Hannon about 10 hours ago

      Just did a quick query on the comments section and if just the people that c/p that refund request have executed chargebacks then KS has lost 10% of its take on this one. I am guessing more have done it and more will. They could easily lose 50% of their cut on this project with a quickness. I am frankly stunned they haven't come into this comments section to calm people down in any way? My only guess is they aren't monitoring it at all.

      @Tiko. I understand that you must be receiving thousands of enquires at this point (probably somewhere in the region of 16,538 by now). But even with that said, I must ask or an update. Living in the UK and as backer 3,433, when if ever am I to expect delivery of a Tiko product?

      Kind regards,

      Steve

    13. Harold Hannon about 12 hours ago

      Wow, I just did some quick back of the napkin math. It looks like if about 800 people executed a chargeback then KS would go into the red. So my question then moves to where in 0-800 do you think they start getting actively involved? Tiko going silent and not living up to the TOS of transparency drives people to chargeback and if 800+ do it then KS starts to lose money on the deal.

    14. Harold Hannon about 12 hours ago

      I wonder how many chargebacks on the pledge it takes before the red flags kick off with kickstarter? I'm all down for chargebacks on the shipping but the pledge is such a sticky issue. That aside I am just curious what the magic number is for them. Once people realize that you can get your money back regardless of their TOS, they will start taking losses. They can't have a lot of employees since all they ever do is have automated replies to emails with form letters. Just wondering when something flags on the financials to get a real human to start looking? Legit question not a troll btw.

      Haha, what?! Team Tiko doesn't have time to address the thousands of comments here, but they have time to kick people off of their forum who were critical of their lack of management skills? Unbelievable. This story gets weirder and more frustrating every week.

      I have been waiting and waiting for very long time... When you guys can deliver the printer... keep saying this and that reason to delay it. Disappointed on Tiko and kickstarter. Empty promise, delay the shipping almost 1.5 years from the date committed.

      @Sven, there wasn't a whole lot of bashing going on in the Tiko forum. Generally it was people talking about their mods to get it working well. There's an alternative Tiko forum set up by one of the users, but I'm not sure if it'll be long lived. It seems that hacks can make it work "ok" but to really bring it to a state where it's as reliable as other printers, you might as well just build/buy one from scratch. Despite Tiko's insistence that they could use consumer grade components and tolerances and still get great prints, that doesn't seem to be the case. Even if you could hack the software/firmware, you're still going to have to deal with the fact that almost every part is "bespoke" (to use a Tiko favorite term), which turns out to be a disadvantage when the company is out of business.

      @Greg Frazier: I got the same initial answer but the merchant is not important, theit bank collected the money so they are challenged by your visa company if you proove that there was announcement of shipping, shipping cost request that you paid and announcement of project cancelation.
      First reaction of my bank was negative saying the payment was too long ago but finally what is important is the date they announced the cancellation. In my case sending screenshots of all that made them give me chargeback. good luck to you

      Maybe, a TIKO admin was trying to block certain people from the forum but blocked everyone by mistake including themselves. Nah TIKO doesn't make mistakes.

      I tried to get a chargeback through Chase Freedom Visa, but they said the "merchant" wouldn't respond to them. Since it happened so long ago, there is nothing they can do about it. Anyone have any other ideas?

      Wow, yeah the forum banning thing really doesnt look good for Tiko.


      Its is a technical glitch, it is REALLY badly timed. I'm not a big believer in coincidences, anyway...

      Honestly, i think that this is Tiko's typical, customer-service way to killing any bad PR.

      So what is going on with the banning on the forum for everyone, is that a glitch, was the forum hacked, or is it TIKO's way of saying FU?

    42. Brian Roush 2 days ago

      @Tiko, given that you've basically closed the forum that signals to me there's little hope that the company is going to remain open. As such, can you at least update plans for the server that provides the firmware/software updates? Are you able to provide any information how long it will be operational, and if/once it is taken offline, is there any option being considered to open up the software to allow users to tinker with it themselves? Any possibility of forcing manual updates to it? I am still waiting on a replacement printer as mine had odd power issues (had sent support a number of videos showing the issue) and the last response was that the whole unit needed replacement, but you weren't sure when it would be sent.

      Yea funny I got banned from their forum as well. Guess they don't want people talking about Tiko. I still check in to see how it is going. I'm very lucky as I got my Tiko and was able to sell it on ebay for the exact amount i put into it. I feel bad for those not as lucky
