-August: was told No Acorn refunds, under any circumstance.  2 months later refunds for everyone (dont know why)

Short answer is supply chain issues. longer answers below. I have a (delayed) September pre-order; I received an email on 4-October asking if I wanted a refund or was willing to wait. I opted to wait. We'll see what happens.

Quote from: GPUHoarder on 31-August-2018 on the discord channel in the updates thread

Quote from: GPUHoarder on 24-September-2018 on the discord channel updates thread
Acorn Update: We still have not received our fans and heatsinks for final assembly, other than one tray of samples. We were able to confirm they shipped and are in customs, but have only been given a typical time it takes for them to clear. We have located a source for the Nest chips Broadcom wasn’t able to provide as ordered, and expect those to arrive this week to begin assembly. As soon as completed units are available we will begin shipping. At this time the supplier estimates we received have been inaccurate, so I can’t provide an exact date until components are all in our hands. Thank you for your patience.

Quote from: SQRL_Jess on 18-October-2018 on the discord channel gpuhoarder-products thread
The majority of Acorns and Nests will still ship in October, we have over 1000 complete Acorn kits at our facility already awaiting assembly and test behind the 1525s

"us people" are the ones not losing our ass in scams either.

I'll take that.

there's three separate threads here involving some kind of FPGA group buy, and they are all gigantic train wrecks.

This is not a scam as of today.  So don’t call it a scam.

I truly expect to be refunded next week.

Do you read discord if you did you would not post it as a scam.

What I will say it has been less then desired in terms of running it.

I truly do think they will deliver the gear and make the refunds no later then Veterans Day .

May I have the link for the Discord channel? thank you

I will go to my pc that has the links give me a bit of time.


Sorry dude the acorn are scam or what is your explanation that the guy who sell it don´t write anything in this thread here? Oh i must read on discord. Sorry but this is stupid, the seller start this thread here so he have to answer here and not on discord or where else.

The original thread starter does not come to this thread very often because of cancer filled comments. Want something answered? ask it on discord. Too many trolls and toxic people here calling it a scam, why should he have to waste his time arguing with people like you?

Bleh at the same time discord is nothing more then a bunch of fanboy groveling at everything said but issues seem to be brushed under the rug. At least here there is an unbiased opinion whether good or bad

It will all be settled pretty soon.

Way back when on this thread I asked a lot of hard questions.

So far  my fear of long delays did occur.

But I truly think  they will make good on the refunds  many requested.

I think they are not scammers but that they simply did not understand  the forces  they were working against.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Discord is a Circle Jerk where you get banned for not touting the party line. Freedom of speech comes with these drawbacks. Welcome to a place you can speak your mind and you won't be banned for it.

I've been on their discord channel for quite some time, and the only folks I saw get banned were the jerks who added nothing but ad hominem attacks and insults to anyone and everyone they could. Phil asked essentially the same hard questions he asked here and got some answers but not banned. He surely was not following the party line.

From Discord:   

Okay So I was wondering why my refund request does
not show on my 2 orders both show as paid and I requested
refunds for the two of them. One was order 0000004** for
$446.50 the other was order 000001*** for $344.74. I
requested refunds on the form sent to me and have waited
patiently for refunds. Last week it was mentioned they would
come this week. I think Jess did a post. This week it seems
that gpuhoarder has mentioned refunds are coming next week.
While I could complain that every week you delay refunds to
the next week I am not complaining about that in the least.
I am complaining that my orders simply don't show that I
requested a refund. So will they ever show the refund is
requested?(edited)

That is not true. I was banned for wanting to sell my 8x 1070ti rig for 1 fpga 1525. I thought it was a fair trade due to the high demand in refunds and I was willing to trade their risk. They got insulted and banned me. That is unacceptable and I expect more professional behavior if selling expensive products. That's not how you treat your future customers that want to buy in

Did you think you were communicating with some car dealership and SQRL was going set you up with a good finance deal on a FPGA for your trade-in?  Come on now, you were asking for a whoopin with that approach.   Cheesy

A car dealership equivalent would be trying to straight swap a used midrange Ford for a brand new Porsche. You'd have to be stark staring insane.
