Here are the first 25 weeks of orders in 2016. If you were excited to order in the first week, you would have placed your order and immediately checked the graph. Maybe even posting to claim your estimated position.
So, it's time for week 25. We had 9 real orders last week; how many this week?
Code:
Week 01 (01/05-07/05): 563 pre-orders (000-563)

Week 03 (15/05-21/05):  53 pre-orders (645-698)
Week 04 (22/05-28/05):  28 pre-orders (698-726)
Week 05 (29/05-04/06):  29 pre-orders (726-755)
Week 06 (05/06-11/06):  16 pre-orders (755-771)
Week 07 (12/06-18/06):  16 pre-orders (771-787)
Week 08 (19/06-25/06):  15 pre-orders (787-793)
Week 09 (26/06-02/07):  10 pre-orders (793-803)
Week 10 (03/07-09/07):  20 pre-orders (803-823)

Week 12 (17/07-23/07):   7 pre-orders (833-840)

Week 25 (16/10-22/10):   7 pre-orders (908-915)
Now, you joined in 2021. You say that "Unfortunately i dont kept the date but must have passed two years at least" so at the earliest you may have placed it in 2019. Even at a 2018 order, you are at the end of the queue.
Well.. i understand the difficulties. Being supportive of an open project i guess means among other things patience.
But the 'openness' in my view should be extended and in some other processes like having a visible order queue .
I mean having patience and seeing the line in front of you is one thing, having patience and faith is another .
An order queue requires more work. How accurate does it need to be? Because effort would need to put in to account for the pre-preorders who secured their spot before the preorder began.
And then when ED finally catches up with preorders... all that work to display an order position is worthless.
It's really hard to justify 'side projects' if they aren't needed when you complete the main project.

In its place, I offer a poem:
https://allpoetry.com/T.T.T. said:
T.T.T.

Put up in a place
where it's easy to see
the cryptic admonishment
T.T.T.

When you feel how depressingly
slowly you climb,
it's well to remember that
Things Take Time.

Respecting other's time shouldn't be mutual ?
Anyway if i am at the end of the queue as you say there is no point in waiting and asking.

Hi, haven't been around here for quite some time. Can somebody give me a brief overview, about the project-status?
I have order-number 700ish. Any dates/plans when they are going to be shipped?

There have been a couple of setbacks and it appears that not much in terms of production has occurred in the past couple of months. However, I believe that progress is back underway (slowly), and I'm also hoping for a status update at some point soonish.

I think you would be lucky to get it this year though.

Thanks for the update! :) One thing a Pyrat can do is waiting... 2 months™
