    @JohnG. Well said.

    Per lo kit #s. I've seen 2 four digit kits finished a couple weeks ago. One was batch 545.

    I signed up early for the Big Y test and I do not recall a contract that said "This will be done by ... ". It was clearly a volume Beta test, with a discount to encourage participation. The idea of a Beta is to get the bugs out of the system before a general release, and usually that is what happens, there are bugs and glitches. We who ordered the Big Y are all pioneers, early adopters, supposedly experienced users who understand the concept of Beta releases and willingly sign up to be on the almost bleeding edge of things. Pioneers like to get there and we will, but with a few interesting events along the way.

    I think major projects often have both scope creep and expectation creep. And lots of learning experiences.

    This is not a promise, this not a commitment. And this is very clear - we were not given a promise as to the which is the delivery date.

    If the expectations were wrong - then we will have a new date.
    Yes. This note was in reply to a question as to whether it is likely the 3/28 date will be met. The scheduled dates that have been provided have changed four times so far and cannot be depended upon. I wish it was otherwise.

    It is interesting that you noticed this. In my case, my sample was collected in Nov 2008. It was used for Y-37 and mtDNA Plus tests.

    Over the next few years my sample was used for upgraded tests such as Y-67, Y-111, WTY, FGS, Y-HAP Backbone, 7 advanced DYS, 10 SNP tests, and Family Finder. None of these items ever appeared to have a problem with my stored sample(s).

    In Nov 2014, I ordered the Big-Y test. It went into testing Batch 542. No problem notices were received (aside from revising test results due dates).

    Then a package appeared in the mail with a letter (3/6/14) and a sample kit. Essentially the letter stated, "...we noticed during this process that you might have an older or scare sample. As a precautionary measure to avoid future delays we are sending you a new kit." The new sample was returned the next day.

    Since then, nothing but silence. I know the new sample was delivered to FTDNA at Houston, TX and that's all. Queries to the FTDNA help desk have produced no additional information related to my Big-Y test results or the new sample.

    We expect that all samples ordered during the initial sale (last November & December) will be delivered by March 28th. We are processing samples in first come first serve order. If a sample doesn't pass quality control, we will place it in the next set of results to be processed as long as we have enough DNA sample. If we require an additional sample, we will send a new test kit and place the new sample in the first set to be processed when it is returned.
    This is not a promise, this not a commitment. And this is very clear - we were not given a promise as to the which is the delivery date.

    If the expectations were wrong - then we will have a new date.

    I ordered my Big Y on Nov 10 right after it was available in my FTDNA homepage thinking that I'll be among the first to get results. I was wrong

    Big Y Progress

    In my projects, we have 2 of 7 results received, so that's 28%.

    Four of the five remaining orders were placed on 11/11 and 11/12, in Batch 542, the first batch. No Batch 542 results have been received yet.

    Results have not been received in the order that orders were placed.

    No new samples have been requested.

    The last three scheduled completion dates for Big Y results have not been met. We have not been told why, so it is difficult to place any confidence in the currently scheduled 3/28 completion date.

    Incidentally, pending test results still show Big Y gDNAQC for most of these orders scheduled to complete on 1/2/2014.

    Could be one big release at the end of the month!

    How has the Clan Donald project fared? badly:
    we have gotten back only 8 out of 57 BigY tests.

    And they are NOT coming back in order sent: they outright lied. We still have only ONE of the 8 ordered the first
    three days.

    The good news is that one is an R1a: one of 17 of those
    has now been delivered.

    I now can see why some people are not as upset about this
    as I am. One in 17 is not 29% delivered. Some projects
    are being favored, knowingly or not. I we had 29% delivered we would be feeling a lot better.

    The Milligan/Milliken project now has results for three members. That brings us to half completed. One had formerly been R-M222, one R-L48 and one R-Z159. We're waiting for three more R-M222s.

    Before yesterday, the Polish Project had received only 12 BigY results.

    Yesterday and today, the project has received 14 BigY results.

    84 BigY orders remain outstanding, not counting full-price orders placed after the introductory period.

    Good news for Big Y customers, at least in the R1b-U106 Haplogroup Project. Between today and yesterday, more than a dozen project members have received Big Y results. We now have 45 (29%) of the 153 Big Y results expected.

    Also, one of the Sicily Project members (also a R1b-U106 Project member) received his results.

    How did other projects fare since yesterday?
