Done! I think I was the first one. I have left a review of Sunburst previously as well. It is an excellent product.

As the post says only a verified ByFormica purchase and does not specify which Byformica product, how does a dirt box not qualify ?

If I can make a suggestion, add a number for how many are included in each entry to the photo on amazon. If you just do the search, it looks like you are buying 1 for $20. Many of the results are misnamed too, and don't reflect this, or say it's a combo (suggesting it's two for $20).

 

I suspect a lot of people hear about your products, but do not buy them for this reason.

I agree 100%.  Finding a way to make primary product photos that reflect the quantity of items included in the kit is a very high priority and something we should have done a long time ago.  It's just that with products this small, figuring out how to make the composition compelling and aesthetically attractive can be a challenge, even if just copying and pasting the same image multiple times in the frame.

I wonder how many people have written reviews that were never published for products they legitimately purchased? If this trend continues, I'm going to have to call for a Special Counsel Investigation to get to the bottom of it!

Actually, I went back to manually see if writing a review would do anything and it popped up with the entire form filled out like I still haven't sent in the review.  This is strange because I submitted it last night when I wrote the thing and no errors popped up.  This is what it said:

Review submitted - Thank you!

We’re processing your review. This may take several days, so we appreciate your patience. We’ll notify you when this is complete.

Apparently it doesn't take a few minutes to post something, it could take "several days," which is stupidly long.  I hope the review gets posted: good rating for a great product.

Well I submitted mine on Saturday or Sunday, and it got uploaded today, if that helps any for a time stamp.

On the typeform, I don't think it's possible to type in your shipping address. (question 5)

Step 2) Let us know about it via typeform OR U.S. customers may text keyword ANTS to 21000 to claim your gift

 

Edit: Sorry my mistake, I didn't see how the question was laid out.

I think it actually works, but you have to click the "Continue" button to go to the next address field. Too many people seem to be having trouble with it, so I may have to find an easier way for people to notify me.

You can just PM me or text keyword ANTS to 21000 from your mobile phone if you're having issues with the online form.

Gonna write a longer review for the Galileo feeders when I have some spare time (EU parliament just passed censorship law that limits access to free information on the internet which means protest preparations are top priority right now (again)...).
