FAQ

FABULOUS AMIGA QUAINT

How does A1200NET operates (and how to support)

How does this all work?

Retro computer enthusiasts supports our team to create replacement parts
And it can be confusing on how we operate.

—–

The team uses Crowdfunding platforms to make new compatible parts for Amiga & retro hardware.

  • Crowdfunding campaigns helps us to build industrial tools to produce replacement parts.
  • These tools are necessary. Original tools are long gone and new ones are necessary to make new replacement parts for the Amiga classic line of computers and other products.
    ff
    IMPORTANT

    IndieGoGo or Kickstarter aren’t marketplaces nor online shops.

     

    • If you are not patient – please do not contribute
      – These industrial projects can take years to deliver!
    • When you pledge on any Crowdfunding campaign
      – You are NOT placing any order!– You are JUST financially supporting a project.
    • When said project reaches production
      – You will get the corresponding reward to your pledge.
    • Keep in mind that
      – You are only financially supporting a project.
      The nature of these projects (plastic injection) yield a risk of losing 100% of the funds you supported the project with.

Can we still support a Crowdfunding project when its Campaign is over?

-Yes,
When a campaign ends new contributors can still support it for the duration of the IndieGoGo InDemand feature.

IndieGoGo InDemand is a feature offered by IndieGoGo that allows new supporters to join the party once a campaign has ended and only if it reached its Goal.

Note:
By supporting a project on IndieGoGo or IndieGoGo Indemand you agree to following statements below:

  1. The contribution you made on said project is non refundable.
    Refund requests are possible under certain circumstances and prior tooling processes where your funds are engaged.
  2. A1200NET is a Team of passionate people running Amiga & retro computer related projects. They do this on their spare time and each team member has his own day job. As such there is no other time of delivery than the one available on the Crowdfunding campaign page.

    Due to the nature of these projects being in heavy industry, delays are part of the projects.
    When delays happen, they can expand the duration and wait time for your rewards to reach you by several months or years.

    – You are advised to always follow campaign updates thoroughly to stay informed and up to date with current progress.

  3. You agree you are not buying a finished nor currently available product. You are merely financially supporting its project.
  4. You agree you are supporting & helping A1200NET to build the tools necessary to produce this item.
  5. As IndieGoGo states it you understand that you do not directly buy a finished product, but only contribute to the process of creating the tools needed in said item production.
    Risk is always part of any crowdfunding project.
    Therefore you understand and agree that A1200.NET Team can’t be held responsible for external elements or events that could lead the Team to not being able to produce the item, and even that such events could render the project to a fail.
    But it’s unlikely to happen 🙂
