    Delayed again. (fourth time)

    Delayed now until 11/22 - 12/6

    I do not know if I believe in FTDNA anymore.
    Still waiting on my batch 774 Big Y, but they haven't bumped it yet. Currently it still says 11/13/2017 - 11/27/2017. I won't be too surprised if it gets bumped again however - last time they waited until Friday to bump mine when they had already bumped others on Wednesday

      I still have no Big-Y (batch 774) results yet but they still haven't bumped me yet either (says 11/13/2017 - 11/27/2017). In any case, bump or not, it makes me cautiously optimistic that these results are not far away (pending completion of the hg.38 recalculation)

        And you will be continually delayed. This is all connected to the Big Y update. I haven't heard of any in-progress Big Y tests being completed after the upgrade started in October 10. Therefore FTDNA is likely working on the old tests first before finalizing the new ones. Just ignore the deadline. It is simply not a real deadline.

        There is just a long line of tests to process before any of the new ones. The good news is that it is getting shorter. The admin of the R1b project claims to have about 75% of the old tests converted from members of that huge project. It has been a month since the upgrade started. So if FTDNA can keep up with its current pace, hopefully in about two weeks they will be nearly done with the old tests. Then they can flood us with a whole boat load of new ones.

          1. This has been mentioned in the forums many times, but just a mass-mailed e-mail note to us would have been worth a ton of good will. We know that some of the project managers, of "European" haplogroups (R1a and R1b) anyhow, say that the delays are due to the reassessment of previous "big Y" results, and that they have now received most of the results they care about, but FTDNA has not told us anything. All we see officially are "expected" dates that slip over and over.
          2. We have now been waiting over 3 months. My family has tests in 771, 774, and 777, not all of them Y. We had planned to buy at least one more during the upcoming sale but --- FTDNA can't even bother to send an automated note of explanation? (I just received a friendly and assuring note from another commercial DNA company, plus the overnight shipment of a duplicate test kit - the contrast is shocking.)

          • Agreed, FTDNA should send out a clear mass email as people won't figure it out on their own what is wrong. I don't know why FTDNA handles communication on delays poorly.

            I'm just explaining that the deadline displayed is meaningless so other people don't keep getting their hopes up that it is a real deadline. I've seen results arrive way ahead of the deadlines. I've seen some results arrive a few days after a new deadline was posted. I've seen how a new sample was needed in some cases. While the person had not sent back the new kit with the fresh sample, a new deadline was continually being shown as if the test was in progress when it clearly was not.

            In one of the small surname project groups I follow, all the old results are already in and only the new ones are left (batches 771, 777).

                      Most likely those who ordered before the August sale period – batch 772 and lower. Delays are still reported here starting batch 773 (for Big Y).

                      • Same -- so it's probably the entire batch. At this rate, I'm wondering if the results even come in this year.

                          • I think something went wrong with mapping directly in hg38… missing regions, new SNPs that could not be detected before, old SNPs undetectable now… it’s a total mess. Probably they have to apply a two-step process with the new samples to be able to integrate them with the old ones. That’s why they cannot give any reaction… they don’t know yet how to integrate the new data.
