Yes I should bold a remark above the list of post 1 NOT TO USE THAT NUMBER BUT THE ONE IN THE PM, ALREADY FILLED IN Wink
But I dare not edit a start post on my small phone screen, before ypu know it I unlock in pockey , delete the whole start post text and save while walking or something else, it’ll have to wait till later. Thanks for the suggestion!

The Miller I wouldn’t presume to tell you guys how to run this whole thing but the sheer number of people confused by the number differences between the interest list and the pm is baffling to me, and has to be adding tremendously to the work you guys have to do to double-check everything on the back end. I think I’d take that interest list down for now, or redact out the numbers or something, to avoid even more people sending you the wrong number in their payment. Or at least put a note above the list in the first post begging people not to change their reference number in the PM, no matter what this list may say.

And for all those coming along who are confused, stop over-thinking it. You got a PM with a number in it. That number came straight from whatever list the organizers are working with on the back-end. That’s your reference number for Neal to know you by. Nothing else matters, cause its not like the number is going to be lasered onto your light or anything.

I’ve been reading and following all this mess from the beginning, amazing it actually gets done amongst all the confusion!

I’m also finding, to my surprise! , that my wife has a lot of family here! (I can give my wife a few very basic instructions to do something, and she will invariably do it differently than requested. IE: Will you please put this candle on the left hand corner of the coffee table, on a leather coaster? Sure. Says she. Then I go find the candle in the middle of the table, on top of a stack of magazines. She likes to edit things, do it her way, or simply zoom-zooms and doesn’t pay close attention.) LOL

Any International shipment requires a phone number on the address label. This is a big thing to them, all started with all the terrorist stuff. But in the end, if the carrier can’t find your address or if something happened to the label, they can call and confirm where to send the item.

As usual, when you want something sent to you it’s normal to list your name and address so it’s sure to arrive where you want it. Simple everyday mail order.

Like several have said, calm down, make sure to read the instructions on the PM that was sent, and follow the instructions. If they sent an PM to Santa Claus with number 123 on the list, then Santa Claus should order number 123 on the list, that’s what they’ll be expecting and their list is the one that matters. The name and number will match, as they sent that instruction. Please avoid confusion by taking the time to clearly read the instruction and follow it through.

Remember, Almost all of us here at BLF that would order on this group buy are NOT CHINESE! We all speak different languages and Neal speaks Chinese, he has to sort it all out through translation so it’s far easier if the basic standards are followed, as requested.

No hurry, you’ve got 5 days to respond…. if you don’t want the light then after 5 days your number will be reassigned, then they’ll have 5 days to respond… see how that quickly turns into a couple of weeks on the pre-order status? No hurry. No worry.

If someone knows they will be out of town during this time frame, perhaps they could ask a friend to monitor this PM system for them and make that initial payment so they don’t lose the 5 day slot…

Good Luck!

Not much to add to what the two gentlemen above said… except.
This is not a race guys. You had/have 5 days to answer questions number 2 & 3 in the PM you received.

Questions 1 & 4 came to you already filled in with your user name & the correct number.

Going forward let us all just try to get it right from here on out and especially when the main buy comes around in a few weeks.

Read the PM, answer what is asked, do not speculated…..
Remember…. this is not a race. There is no first place. Take time to read and do it right. Smile

IF you are unsure about something……. ask before you do anything.

Thanks again to the entire GT Team & LT for making this possible…. Thumbs Up

Carry on……. Wink

edit: 1, 2, 3 simple as pie….. 170 done.

Can someone give me a good address to buy the cells for this light that ships to The Netherlands? I think there was a test somewhere too, but I cannot find it anymore.

If you want button top 30Qs,you can buy from Banggood typing “4PCS Samsung INR18650-30Q 3000mAh Unprotected Button Top 18650 Battery With Protected box”.
They send them worldwide.I ordered 2 boxes of 4.

“Lumintop offers their 3400mAh cells to be shipped with the GT for $7,- a piece. When ordering note your total when making the payment.”

a regular symptom of flasholism Big Smile

“Flasholism is the most severe form of flashlight use and involves the inability to manage your flashlight use habits. It is also commonly referred to as flashlight use disorder. Flashlight use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects. If left untreated, any type of flashlight use can spiral out of control.”

To keep things simpler I will add a symbol to people asking to be removed, this means Mr.Scott knows that name is not to receive a PM but it keeps the list intact so less chance of confusion Wink

If somebody forgets info,
Please reply this to the PM Neal also gets, so he sees it and can add 1 and 1 Wink
Thanks!

Yes, deleting people at this point will mess up the program generating the PMs. If you no longer want or no longer have the funds, then just don’t pay.

Thanks!

That would be because rvr’s correct number on the correct list is #41. Wink
