On January 4th I posted the following without receiving an answer. Like my poat befor with the same topic:
“One or 2 weeks ago I asked , if the rule “first come, first served” is still valid. But I received no answer…”
Now I can guess why this rule is no more valid: An email announced yesterday (my understanding) that one can buy a V right now and then it could be delivered at the end of march.
I bought mine in December and it also will be delivered in march - say EVE.
So the new rule is: First come, served when EVE decides?
Well, that’s how it works anywhere basically. It’s just common sense.
Let’s say you have a queue of 3 people waiting. The first one was originally supposed to receive things on day 1, the second on day 10 and the third on day 20 according to planned availability of components.
Now let’s say you receive (although later than expected) enough components to fulfill all 3 orders: what do you do? Do you fulfill all of them together or do you fulfill only the first and then pointlessly wait 10 days for the second and 20 days for the third? You fulfill all of them together, of course…
And then of course there’s the special cases where some particular issue is preventing to fulfill a specific order in the queue, like the address not existing, the money not received, legal compliance with some regulation missing and so on. In that case you don’t stop all the queue of course: you take out that specific item from the queue and continue as usual while the involved parties work on solving the problem.
So, assuming there are no problems related to the specific case, I’d say he’ll most likely receive his device either before any subsequently placed order or at the same time (minus the variability introduced by delivery, of course). If there’s any problem with a group of orders, (based on the location, for example), he’ll receive the device when those issues are solved and in the meantime delivery will continue where such problems doesn’t exist.
