Thanks for posting the letter Fattrain, as I have not yet one. It addresses a number of concerns.
They mention again that Rodger is handling licensing AND that that they have hired a CPA, presumably for accounting and business management (would be nice to know his official role and whether he is an equity partner. I doubt an employee will have the pull necessary to be in control of the process otherwise). They are working towards controlling the the DP-USA situation but don't have a final solution yet, as refund requests are still outstanding. They also mention John Goodman will be on the translite, playfield and in feature clips and call outs. Finally, they state the project is proceeding and still targeted for Spring production. True - not all concerns have been addressed, but it is a start, and is a pretty good update.
Three primary questions are still being worked and may need to be resolved before funding starts flowing again into DP. 1) is my money safe? - people want to hear that DP is standing behind their orders and that if they paid in, that money is properly credited. 2) where's my refund? - confirmation that anyone requesting a refund will be granted one in a reasonable time frame (one month). 3) where's my BOP 2.0? - since US orders are set to ship soon, what is status of the current software.
These items need to be addressed before I would personally feel comfortable sending more money, but to others these concerns might not be a big deal. I sense that DP might prefer not getting into the weeds on the matter, and will chose instead to proceed with fewer pre-orders and to pick up regular orders during production. Who knows, people are crazy for this pin, and once it is production ready, will be happy to snap one up. Keep your heads up DP, some in Pinside are hoping for a messy crash and burn, but they are few in number, 95% of us are rooting for you. The theme itself and execution so far make this the pin to watch. Hoping to add one to my collection in Fall of 2015.
