    The last panel of my dad's Y-111 upgrade (he was in batch 597) showed up this morning.

    Unfortunately for me, there weren't any matches at either 67 or 111 markers, so I'm still stuck when it comes to that particular line (but then, I've been stuck at my gg-grandpa on that line for the last 22+ years, so that's nothing new to me). Maybe someday...

    It's amazing how these kits can languish untouched for the better part of a year, then when one makes enough noise about them, the results start rolling in...

    I think one thing we have to remember is that we can't compare the wait time for the different kinds of test to each other.

    A Family Finder test is going to be different from one of the Y tests and even the Y test time frames could be different if they are upgrades and then the Big Y is a different ballgame. You can't compare apples to oranges.
    And a test that is in 'ceased production' status for an unspecified period of time due to missing components as were the ySTR panel tests, but which were still available for sale as if there were no problems, is in a whole different league. In fact, that's just plain underhanded. Granted this is a technical area, but that's no excuse for lack of notice to customers of supply issues and temporary unavailability of a product that will affect processing times. That changes the equation for me and I am having to consider the unpleasant prospect of pursuing the complaint route. The website suggested average wait times of four to six weeks for such tests, if I remember correctly, or something along those lines, but that failed to take into account the "ceased production" status of the test late last year, and the formulating of a new workaround procedure or the upgrading of equipment or whatever was done and tested to get around the lack of the needed unspecified component.

    You are correct that kit numbers are not "top-secret"--they appear in project web site Y-DNA results.

    But in this particular case, we were discussing tests that are not yet complete and therefore not yet public; and in fact, Big Y participation is not specifically indicated in project listings (although a savvy investigator can usually figure it out from SNP results, category, etc.).

    Besides, an FTDNA employee was asking the question, and he (quite correctly) decided that discretion is the safer approach in such a matter.

    He only takes care of these kits.

    If I were him, I would not share the kit numbers either, even if the owners said that they are giving him all the rights.

    If you are writing on your own behalf, it's o.k. to post your own kit number. But a project administrator can't do so for a project member without their consent

    My father's Y-37, batch 600, ordered 12/6 from an existing FF sample, resulted yesterday. Oodles of GD 1 and 2 matches at 25 that all fall apart to leave zero matches at 37. Boo.

Seems to be a computer system thing. [----]
    Your observation is 100% right.

    Last night official posts from FTDNA (presented here by Darren) actually confirmed that the individual kits completion dates are not tracked, but the automatic timer keeps adjusting the ETA.
