Seems like they are generally proceeding in order, but not exactly (still no word about $26 OtOoPCs package). And there is still a lot of intermediate levels between this and $67. So there's no reason to get anxious until people start mentioning receiving e-mails or packages of your level.
    Also bear in mind that signed and unsigned packages are sent by different people, so receiving signed packages gives no new info on Ookoodook's progress.
    Hopefully Rich will give more solid information on this in the next update.
    It might be helpful to have information like this on Page 1 so the same questions don't keep getting asked. As days go by, more and more people will start wondering where their stuff is and the same questions will get asked over and over again.

    That said, I can't even fathom what a huge undertaking it must be to have to process and deal with all this stuff. I'm really not complaining about the lead time. I was happy to support my favorite webcomic, and my order will get here when it gets here.

    I wish Ookoodook would give Rich some notes on their shipping progress so far then, maybe with a by package type list. I know its a lot of stuff to go through, but I am genuiely looking forward to my stuff coming in the mail.

    Basically, the more detailed the information, the more people it occupies. Right now, in order to get the location of one specific order, I need to talk to Okoodook's owner, who talks to his shipping manager, who talks to her shipping people, who have to find the package, then report to her, and she reports it back to the owner, who reports it to me. I would personally rather all of those people work at packing books than answering queries, so I haven't been asking for more detailed breakdowns at this point.

    Also, new update on KS.

    The Good News: My package arrived on Saturday! The Whole Story, Signed, complete with a little sketch in the front of each book, and an IOU for Sticky Shticks. No shipping e-mail ever received.

    The Bad News: The box had a large hole in it, and the magnet & patch are missing. (I've e-mailed Rich via Kickstarter).

    I received everything in perfect condition, and I'm not afraid to admit I squealed at the drawn Flumph for my DCF package.

    On the darker side of things: there was plenty of chuckling to be had when I circled Familicide in the coloring book's word search.

    Not sure on the date, but I do recall that the particular reward being planned was contingent on the plan working out, with the mystery staying a mystery in case that did not happen. If the intended date passed without notice, then it's either delayed, or other options are being pursued.

    Would you mind spoilering the coloring book stuff, please? I'm sure many people who haven't gotten it yet would like to see the best parts for themselves.

    As the latest update explains, they're way behind on shipping emails. I still haven't had mine and my package arrived two and a half weeks ago. There's no need to start worrying until Rich announces that all the packages have been sent.

    Others might have, but I'm still waiting for it.

    I'll be sending Rich a message about it if I don't get the package or email by the end of the month.

    I doubt that'll get you any more information than you'll get from the Kickstarter update comments, to wit: they're sending them out as quickly as they can, but they're not done yet.

    Since Ookoodook are handling the non-signed packages wouldn't it be quicker to contact them, anyway? Or has Rich asked that all Kickstarter communication go through him?

    That is one week old, so unless Rich says shipping is finished for your order-type, i think it would really do nothing to bother him.

    I will wait, but i at least know my packages are still on halt (one with Sticky Shticks and one with digital portrait - i should have included both in one )

    I've not gotten mine, but I also got the Sticky Shticks add on so that will likely delay my package a bit.
