!!!!!! Important Note !!!!!!

Anyone who has expressed an interest in a lantern should verify that their BLF user name is correct in the Interest list by user names link. When the lanterns are ready for purchase the pm’s will be automatically generated based upon the user name in that file so if your name is incorrect then you won’t be getting a pm Sad

This is a one time only check so if your name is correct now then it will be correct going forward. In other words you only need to check once. Note that embedded spaces are valid characters so for example a name having one embedded space is not the same as a name having 2 embedded spaces.

Different letter cases in the user name doesn’t matter. Eg. Userxxx is the same as uSERXXX for the purposes of the pm’s.

If a name needs to be corrected send me a pm and don’t just post it in this thread because it could very well be missed.

DO NOT send me a pm saying that your name is fine.

Thanks

I can re-post this in the OP too just after the names list to get attention of any new members join in to add to the list.

No powerbank function, as it would make the build more complicated for the V1.

 

Just for info, is there a V2 in the works and if so what would be different?

What are the ca. dimensions of the lantern?

So people can search for transport pouches

I like this one for the
BOSE SOUNDLINK REVOLVE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
15,2 cm x 8,2 cm x 8,2 cm (HxBxT)

Has a little extra space for the charger. Is even tapered, but I don’t know if it fits. (probably a bit to wide)

There is a V1 in the works, that’s for sure Smile
We can have ideas and wishes for a V2, but it is up to Sofirn to think it feasable enough to actually make it, so it could happen but I would not bet on it at this point.

With some of the ideas for the v2 I have seen pop-up I sure hope they do though. Would probably end up with a lantern or two more.

I found myself on the list, #672, but I think I’m miss understanding the name check. It’s definitely correct, but I can’t click my name and go to my profile.

The name check is just to verify that it’s correct in my database as I don’t have any way to join my tables to SB’s server. When the lanterns are ready for purchase I will create the pm lists on my end that SB will execute on his end to send out the actual pm’s. If the name is incorrect in my table then that person won’t receive a pm.

Clicking on your name on the list won’t take you anywhere and is solely intended as a visual check. It’s a one-time only verification so since you saw that it’s right then you don’t have to do it again.

Btw the Entry number on my lists do not necessarily correspond to the one’s that DBSAR show for minor technical reasons (although 99% are the same). But the order they were loaded into his and mine are exactly the same for anyone who is curious or worried about that.

Have the feeling this lantern will be one of those legends that keeps getting refined.  Exciting project.

Not at all. I already entered you into my database for 2 per your prior post. You will see them next Sunday night when the updated lists are published.

And welcome to BLF Smile

You should. Just keep in mind they’re quite serious about the rules. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, though. If you don’t like/agree with something move along and you’ll be fine.

I’m interested in the lantern but this is very much dependent on price, any possible range?

Glad to see your choice! Here’s the pricing info so far and a convenient tool to search for pricing in your future browsing

You’re not too late.
The price is roughly $30 or $40, maybe, hopefully. It has not been finalized.

We’re glad to have you here!
In the future, if you look at the top left of any thread page here, you will see a button that says “search within thread”, you can get your answers much faster that way. In fact, I couldn’t remember the price, so I used it to find this answer for you by searching for “price”.

Thanks!:)

Were not exactly sure yet, but depends on once the final production model is set to go, were guessing between 45 to 55 range.

I’m #685 and haven’t seen any PMs yet. Does anyone have any idea what range on the list is being served now? Also, what is the price? I haven’t seen any posts with pricing and I can’t search all of the pages to find it. Thanks

I thought the earlier estimates were in the $30-40 range. Not that it matters but what has changed?
