Doing this as FCFS is pretty crappy in my opinion... They should have done RNG. I would have had to get up at 4am and I hear everything was still sold out.

Yea, rewarding commitment and dedication over pure luck and nothing else is definitely a mistake on their part.
Not really.

"commitment and dedication"? It plays a lot into time zone difference and Internet speed. Look at all of the people that got locked out at payment.

How's that not related to effort? Being up at 4am to grab a bunch of plastic keycaps for your keyboard or a kit to solder definitely qualifies as dedication in my book, if you were to be at work I'd understand why you'd be mad but otherwise, not really.
If your internet is slow most then that's unfortunate but if you're having trouble loading internet pages in 2017 then either you're living in a very rural town/country or you're just saving money by being on dial-up.
Some people are just faster than others, of course tons of people are gonna be locked out at payment, again - it's still way more fair than chucking it up to pure luck; not to mention they had like 2000 kits overall including caps, artisans and kits, how many entries do you think they'd have gotten if it was raffle? 5000? 10000? Processing that would be a full time job in and of itself, that was absolutely not the point of this garage sale.
