So what about bringing more price drops, MD? The mods have reached 5x quantity of the last drop point, novelties have reached 6x quantity of the last drop point. It's quite strange IMO.

<tinfoil hat speculation>: They might not do any more price drops because of the warning signs kit, I think they were meant to charge for each row instead of the whole kit but made a mistake yet chose to honour the price (except they removed the second price drop for it). They might still get lower rates for having a larger MOQ but the money will make up for the loss on warning signs. </tinfoil hat speculation>

Yeah, my guess as well. Or they simply want to make more money which is reasonable, since the kits are still selling.

Well there's a certain point where a product can't be sold for any less without either breaking even or incurring a loss. Keep in mind that Signature Plastics and Massdrop both have an operating cost to cover, and also want to make a profit on a product.

I agree with your statement entirely, however I do not believe the prices reflect that point as of right now (excluding Warning Signs, which seem to be an anomaly).
Although I am not aware of production costs in U.S., so my statement probably isn't entirely as grounded as some others with more insight. Other kits have been cheaper, that does seem to be in favor of some of the requests..

It's theirs mistake after all. The good practice is both to honour the price and provide more price drops. Otherwise it's just ridiculous: we're all about communities (till it brings us money) and the more people will join, the more price drops will follow (to some uncertain limit we state ourselves). I do understand that it's business after all, I just don't like the way community members are considered mindless zealots.

$12.99 for 36 keys that are essentially novelties is a pretty damn good price. I can totally understand why there aren't more drop points for it, mistake or not.

I agree with that but that shouldn't affect price drops for other kits IMO

This pretty much sums it up. You can't both honor a mistake and withhold more drop points at the same time.

Oh yeah I agree, I thought you guys were talking about *just* the hazards.
