It would have nice to have a little buffer between the last drop shipping and this new drop.
While I got a shipping notification for the missing stabilizers, I still only have half of the screws and posts that I need to complete my build. No response to the support ticket and this comment will likely get buried by the comments from those joining the new buy.
(I edited this comment, Yanbo replied to the comment before it was edited, so I changed it back to what he replied to. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

If you've reached out to support from your transactions tab, they will sort you out. Also, no worries about buried comments, I try to read everything that's posted.

Thanks, Yanbo! I'm glad that concern was unfounded. I'm excited to get this project underway.
Also, some other longer term Ergodox users and I have a project on GeekHack where we're trying to come up with a 'standard' Ergodox keyset with legends. While the results have been mixed, but if we end up coming up with a solid proposal, who would be the best person to make that pitch to for a potential buy? Would it be to you first or the manufacturer first? Massdrop seems to be a natural venue for such a keyset.

Standard? Perhaps you're better off coming up with multiple "variations" for java/c/programming, english typing, gaming, etc.

You should join us in the Geekhack discussion thread. We're in the Ergonomics forum.
Coming up with a "vanilla" set is challenging enough. I think if we could get something like that in place first, we could look at other specific kits to grow from it. But, trust me, even getting a "normal" QWERTY has been difficult process.

I browsed GeekHack and I don't see a thread about coming up with standard sets? Can you give a link?
One question: what is a "normal" set? Who would use a "normal" set? Writers? Programmers? Gamers?

You can shoot me a PM on geekhack! MassdropYanbo is the username. I think we can definitely arrange for an ergodox centric keycap set drop.

Here's the link: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=80885.msg2151749#new
Normal in this case are people that converted from the standard US ANSI QWERTY layout.
It's less about what you do and more about where you came from. Most Ergodox users, from the data I have collected, tend to keep keys in familiar places when switching to the Ergodox. For example, most users keep Tab, Pipe/Slash and Left Shift in the place that it would fall on a US ANSI keyboard.
The caveat to this is that the sample size is still much too small to say things with a high degree of confidence.. which is why I'm encouraging you to join in on our discussion.
This isn't an attempt to make everyone use the same layout. Ergodox users seem to like buying keysets as much as the average user and are even willing to pay a little more for a non-blank keyset.
