I know it is a group buy. I know China got a lot of problems. I know a lot. What i do not know is that you know nothing.

Code: [Select]
Delivering time will be confirmed at the end of GB by ePbt, we are targeting end of 2021.
This is delusional, or?

But i do not understand? Is it like it is not allowed to ask GMK or EPBT about current states? Is it like "you should never ask if you do +1Month". I do not get the point in initiating a group buy and be quiet for 1/2 Year just telling people asking "no news".
Sorry, but this goes not well in my business understanding.

Because there is no news. Everytime i ask ePbt for the prototypes i keep having the same answer as it's "in processing". And i can't do anything.

The lack of communication from manufacturers is a huge problem!

We are at the point where they seem to have nothing to do with leaving buyers and dealers without news for months.

I have only one desire, to be able to cancel all the GBs in which I participate in order to no longer support this kind of behavior!

GB runners can still improve communication. Periodically attempt updates from manufacturer, and report back even if the response is "your order is being processed" so that we know the GB runner is still engaged and committed to fulfillment. Too many GB runners don't think about the perspective of the customers. The GB runners who do this well tend to have loyal followers and repeat customers. Those who do not...

As for the customers, we can speak with our wallets. I've stopped joining new keyset GBs, and bought half dozen Akko and other KO sets that delivered within days/weeks.

Geekhack lacks an option to be notified only when OP posts, that would be very useful.

"Sample is expected to be completed next week (2021-12-11)"

From what I understand, the sample will be validated next week and from there if all is well the production will start?

Merry Xmas everyone. I received the samples today.
Here is a quick picture


At first glance everything looks fine. I'll take more time to take pictures and also send the samples to Biip for second approval as he helped me on this project.

It's dye sub, it will never be as aligned and consistent as doubleshot. Here's a super potato pic (took with my phone with awfull light):

For the people wondering about the halo on bars, it's present as it's 5 sided dyesub but it's pretty minimal:

I don't have any keyboard with standard bottom row.
Also the samples are at biip's home rn for the double check. We're addressing the required change to kbdfans.

The sample pics look a lot darker than the original GB renders. Is it due to the ambient lighting condition when the picture was taken or are they actually much darker?

Colors fit the pantone ref and as you have seen with all the pictures shown above this is not an easy set to capture the colors from.

Current colors have been validated by Biip and I, waiting for the full set of samples from ePbt.

That's a good new, i know it's hard to take a picture with correct color, so many parameters can vary. When you have the full set, can you make a picture with the pantone reference next to the keyset?
