Project Update: It's time! Survey Incoming Alert! 🚨🚨

It's time for our second post-campaign progress update!

tl;dr: our backers survey is ready! Expect it in your inboxes later this week. You'll have until the beginning of July to fill it, and we'll keep pestering you until you do.

And now... the deetz!

Recent Progress on our BackerKit Campaign

As a precursor to sending our backers survey, wherein backers will be able to confirm their rewards selection and add new ones, we made one last push to finalize all our add-ons. This included:

  • Creating two variations on the bonus IT’S OVER 9000! sticker design to celebrate the campaign’s final total
  • Confirming the art that will be used for the stickers themselves, which include comparing different-sized options and making final decisions about what sizes would fit best on everyone’s laptops and notebooks
  • Launching the sponsor wall we’d started coding during the campaign to showcase our higher-tier backers. (You can see it by inputting the konami code on our website, or by clicking the buttons in the footer!)
  • Visiting local screen printing shops to make a final decision about the size and fabric weight we’ll use for our tote bags (after the online samples we got failed to meet our quality standards)
  • Preparing our test containers of ✨Git’s catboy bathwater✨, personally filled & sealed by Ms Boba’s own hands (shown below)

Our sample bathwater, catboy not included
 
When all that was dialed in, we put together the backer survey and submitted it to BackerKit for review. They gave us a few minor improvements to make, and now the survey is finally ready to send!

We’ve also begun working with one of our longtime collaborators to build out the FujoCoded storefront, where much of the merchandise offered during our BackerKit campaign will eventually become available for purchase and help us start covering some of our recurring expenses. (You can always become a Patreon supporter if you’d like to contribute on an ongoing basis!

As you’ll learn in the next section, we haven’t been able to get shiny new contracts from our would-be lawyers yet, but our longtime collaborators know us well and are comfortable continuing to work under the same informal “we will pay you X money for Y money” contract agreements we’ve been able to make up on our own so far. We're chomping at the bit to hear back from our legal contacts so we can at long last offer official lawyerly contracts that fully reflect the respect we have for the work of our contributors.

What’s Next for our BackerKit Campaign

Now that the survey is ready, backers can expect it in their inboxes later this week. If you’re a backer who supported us at a tier with physical rewards, you’ll need to select your exact preferences—what color T-shirt, what tote bag design, which FujoBoard slogan you want paired with your charcuterie spread, etc. 

  • 👀 Heads up: Some of you will receive the survey early. You’re our test group! Please let us know if anything about the survey is confusing, so we can correct it before it goes out to every other backer. We’re counting on you!
  • The rest of you will receive the survey later next week. It will be sent out in shifts, so we can’t say exactly what day you’ll get it.
  • You’ll have until the beginning of July to fill it out.
  • (But we’ll keep pestering you about it the whole time so you don’t forget 😌)

Lawyering up: As we mentioned in our last edition, we did reach out to legal counsel, but lawyers tend to be busy folks and we’re still waiting on them to reply! We’re hopeful we’ll be able to make contact soon, and will continue pinging them in the meantime.

With that said, we would still love any additional lawyer recommendations in the following domains:

  • employment law (as it relates to 1099 contractors)
  • intellectual property law (as it relates to character design)
  • international law (as it relates to employment and intellectual property)
  • corporate law (as it relates to limited-liability corporations established in Wyoming.)

You can find a more detailed list of our needs in this lawyer search document we shared during the campaign.

Hang Out with FujoCoded on Twitch 💬✨

For the foreseeable future, Ms Boba will be streaming only once a week instead of twice. There may be an extra bonus stream here or there, so keep an eye on either social media or on our new permanent “streaming schedule” page.

Here’s the schedule for upcoming Twitch streams—nothing specific is currently planned, you just get to hang out with Ms Boba as she works on campaign fulfillment stuff and other company needs.

June 
  • Thursday, June 20 @ 3pm PDT: Coworking time!
  • Thursday, June 27 @ 3pm PDT: Coworking time!
July
  • Thursday, July 4 @ 3pm PDT: Coworking time!
  • Thursday, July 11 @ 3pm PDT: Coworking time!

Speaking of streams, we recently had a very exciting BobaBoard stream where Ms Boba walked viewers through launching their own BobaBoard realm. While a BobaBoard volunteer is working to add a summary to our documentation, the BobaBoard comms team is working on cutting the recording for time for those who prefer learning by watching. Our goal is to ensure that anyone interested in starting their own realm has an accessible tutorial ready to go. Watch this space!

Well, it looks like we’ve managed to stick the landing on another month as a real company. Hope you’re enjoying this peek into the activity under the anthill!

Project Update: Metal 3d printed trumpets?

Get a $400 3d metal print for only $50 before they become trumpets!

With just a few hours remaining on our campaign, we are excited to announce that production will begin next Monday! It's amazing that we can offer a $400 stainless steel top for only $50. 

This sounds too good to be true and that catch is that today is the last time pricing will be this low.
And imagine what the new trumpets will do for your performance!

Share our Momentum II spinning top project with your friends, family, and colleagues before they're sold out!

Project Update: 70% fulfilled!

Hi everyone!

Just a quick update. 

We are just passed the halfway point in terms of fulfillment. I anticipate shipping out the remaining rewards by next week. We are completely within schedule and the magnets are finishing just as I intended. 

Just to start a bit of discussion, what are some other designs that might be of interest to you?

Here are some that I either have in the works or am considering. 
  • Designs reminiscent of the Fallout video game series, or of Lord of the Rings. 
  • Small molecule designs (ie, caffeine, ethanol, penicillin, aspirin, or even basic baking ingredients like baking soda). These would probably be on aluminum magnets to make them more affordable. 
  • Flowers such as sakura and lotus. 
  • An expansion of the element series (magnesium, zinc, graphite)

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, thank you!

If I’m understand correctly, the only difference between the Music Shield and Dusk Sport is app access? Also, what happens to our extras if we do choose to switch to the Music Shield? I believe the reward I selected came with a charging case, FindMy strap, cleaning kit, microfiber cloth, soft carry case, and usb c-a charging cable. Will those still be included? If so, how do I go about requesting the dusk sport lite?

Project Update: Surveys are out! Production about halfway through!

Hi everyone!

This is just a quick update. Surveys are out, and production is about halfway through. Below is an image of the magnets in various stages of production. I might begin the bulk of shipping end of next week.

That's about it, thank you and have a good rest of the week!
