Information and Updates

CHECK ORDER HERE: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQMHo2QqRLlHx63qiji9BAJ_hCQ99DZ18Yz0rWARaZU7BEm1prhhhWArGpeGd2hQhtdz0dJ-jkFGhZz/pubhtml?gid=0&single=true

Information about changes on Page 13


Thank you all for the interest in the GSKT-00.  Supplemental information from the GB will not be repeated here, so please see the Interest Check thread for more in-depth information.

Some options are still being decided on privately (pcb colors, alps plate layouts) but the practice form will have the most up to date options when it is released.  Be prepared for a long form because of all the options.

The GB will open on January 20th.  I am in the US-EST time zone and I am shooting for the form to open sometime in the late afternoon or early evening.  This should give most of the US a good chance for it and the people in Europe and Asia shouldn't have to stray too far outside their schedules either.  I will update with the official time on Monday morning.

Opening at 5pm EST.

One more thing is I had to raise the international shipping price to $50 after checking a lot of estimates, hopefully this isn't too much of a deterrent.  Only $5 but worth mentioning.  2 units will also be an additional $15 charge regardless of location.

Practice Form: CLOSED

Official Form, opens 1/22 at 5pm EST: CLOSED

Timeline

For 200 boards and plates it is looking like up to 90ish business days of manufacturing time.  Can't really get this lower, so it will be a bit of a wait, but that's to be expected at that high of a unit count and with all the plates.  If for whatever reason we don't hit the maximum then it will of course take less time.  PCB turnaround should be some time less than the boards and gaskets and screws are a trivial amount of time to acquire so no worries there.  Again cerakoting will add another 3-4 weeks of time (potentially longer depending on how many people want it) so be prepared for that as well.  But that will only affect those who are getting a board koted.

As far as what to expect out of me for updates, I will not update with any information unless something is happening.  Meaning when boards ship to me, pcbs ship, we get components, etc then there will be an update.  Otherwise, I will not have anything to say.  Having weekly updates that are nothing more than me saying "still waiting" are not useful and will be forgone.

Form Submission and Invoicing

Please take your time to fill out the form carefully and accurately.  For such a large potential unit count I do not have the time or patience to edit/change much (if any) information filled incorrectly.  I would appreciate if you make sure the information you submit is accurate and complete so it saves me time in getting orders to the factory and to you as quick as I can.  If you fill out the form really quickly without the right info just to get a spot, then try to have me change it all after the fact, then I will cancel your order.  If it's a small thing we'll make it work, but please try to submit it right the first time.  Please help me make this as smooth as possible and get these boards to you all with as little headache as possible. Thank you.

The form will stay open as long as the maximum has not been hit.  If we don't have the maximum in 2 weeks time then it will be closed and run with the amount received.


Invoices will be sent as I create them so expect a week or so of me sending invoices out.  Invoices should be paid as quickly as possible, the sooner everyone submits, the sooner we can send an order to the factory.  You will have 2 weeks to pay from the time you receive your invoice.  If you have not paid by then, your spot will be passed to the next person in line and so on. 

Submission to the factory will not happen until all orders are paid for.

There are no refunds of any kind.  Once you have paid the money, you will not be getting it back unless there is some failure on my end at which point probably everyone would be refunded, but that is an absolute worst case scenario.  Worth mentioning in the spirit of Caveat Emptor.

Pricing

- Case: $225

- Plate: $25 Half - $30 Full

  - Materials: Aluminum (Silver, Gray, Black, Red), Stainless Steel (Brushed), POM (black transparent, expect potential slight warping and/or very small misalignment), Acrylic (Clear), Polycarbonate (Frosted)

- PCB: $25

- Shipping: $25 CONUS - $50 International

- Cerakote (any non-custom color): $50


A final thank you to all the friends who have used this board and those who have expressed interest in it.  You are appreciated.  :thumb:

Seems I have a brain that is stupid. None of the swatches I uploaded were Light Sand 🙃

I have one somewhere, i'll see if i can find it and show something before the form opens on Monday.

For the POM plate, will the warping be some what fixed when fully built? Also, what kind of misalignment?

If there is any it will be very slight, such that you might need to make sure the plate is pressed a bit more flat whilr you solder. There have also been a few pom plates i've order that have a cut or two off my fractions of a mm that i had to file slightly. It's all very small problems that don't actually affect a build but just something to be aware of. I'll check they're within spec before i ship it and if i think it's enough of a problem i'll replace it and it won't matter.
What payment methods will you be accepting? Paypal?

The invoice will be generated by Shopify so whatever they support including Paypal. You will still order through the form so there's no storefront to worry about. Just using Shopify for invoicing and keeping track of things better.

Just as a heads up, these chips are fairly inaccurate. They are made of a really cheap pliable metal and it coats and takes color fairly differently from aluminum. It is a good basis for understanding, but really only use these as a loose guide, not a 1:1 comparison.

Quite right. Your the man. Never had anything cerakoted before so I have no clue. It is nice feeling the finish though, which I imagine will be closer to the real thing even if colors aren't completely. I might go with stormtrooper white just because of the glassy smooth finish.

I own both, which is the correct choice to make. The spacebar from the half plate is really nice. But the alphas from a full plate are also good.

The half plate really shows off the flex cut in the pcb which really offers a responsive typing experience. The full plate is a more traditional aluminum plate feel with a unique sound.

It does look like a cool off white. It's not stormtrooper white white but it's got a little bit of cream. If you go too warm or yellow it looks like aged plastic rather than a color choice. The snow white could look good with a lot of caps.

Earlier than expected, practice form here: https://forms.gle/T8tZfmLbdwiSecMq9

This form is only representative of the option selections, not the overall length of the form or a complete order.  This is stripped down to only show selections for 1 case, 1 pcb and 1 plate.  The real form will use the same option selections but have more sections.

Sharing this early to help clear up any confusion people have with the current setup.  Any helpful feedback is appreciated.

Official start time will be released on Monday morning (EST).

Blargh, Good thing this was put up. Now I gotta decide ANSI vs ISO.

My current take:

HHKB + ANSI
Standard + ISO

I just like symmetry when it comes to WKL or HHKB, and think ISO breaks up the standard look a little.

Yep it'll be there, it's a simple thing that I didn't think needed to be seen beforehand. Like I said i stripped this one down a lot, if you can handle the plate selection then the rest will be easy.

Ooohh Alps plates! Nice!
Hey weasto can you provide the various possible Alps layouts? Thanks.
For ex, I assume "Alps - Multistation' is something like this? ↓

And I also wonder, between these 2 layouts, which one is "Alps - ANSI Split Right Shift":

Alps Multistation is basically JIS layout, looks like this, but for the 00 plate we will use the normal split right shift setup not the stock inverted one.  So the 00 plate will have the 1U closest to the case wall: http://i.imgur.com/VPZzj1m.jpg

The picture you showed are multistation caps with some other supplemental caps (on E3E's Miramasa) but they are in an ANSI layout.

When I say split right shift it is only that, not the traditional HHKB layout with split backspace.  I personally think split backspace with Alps is more pain than it's worth because you pretty much never have a cap with a good legend for it and the rest of the top row caps are never really right either.  That is of course unless you own a lot of random sets and could piece something together, but I'd rather keep the options to standard backspace for Alps since it works for more people and helps keep me from drowning in options.

It would show your dedication to grabbing one. I'm kind of a fan of unknown launch. Especially since I'll be working. Means the window won't be instant. And if I run a minute or two late getting back to my desk I might get one.

You have to realise that for some people in EU and Asia that’s odd hours for them, so they’re gonna just have to go with no sleep for the next day or take an entire day off just for this. I’ve got kids so I can’t commit to staying up all night, so it means I don’t have a shot at it anymore if it becomes an unknown launch time.

Please keep it at the current GB format for EU and Asia people :(

Not rushing you or anything, but since you're obviously here watching this thread, it would be nice if you have people an update.

IIRC, the time was supposed to be announced today AM. Just telling people that you'll announce it later or tomorrow AM would stop the unrest.

News flash. It's not Monday morning EST in the US yet.

I don't mind people wanting to know when the GB is, but it annoys me when people don't read the thread or think about people living elsewhere in the world. Sure you can't please everyones time zone but demanding updates for a day that isn't even here yet seems extreme. Lol.

Jeez, if you're so upset about a GB, don't buy and spend your money elsewhere. The entitlement is crazy. You want the board, adjust your schedule to get it, if it matters to you, if it doesn't, then don't but don't expect someone to bend for every single person because people will still complain.

It's why I buy mostly aftermarket, flip prices. Maybe I woke up from the wrong side of the bed today. I'm not entitled, promise. I'm only making sure that any claims to fairness are fair. Some GBs have been announced in a similar fashion, where even before the GB thread got updated, slots are already filled up because of discord.

I'm not in any discord servers except some with my friends, i'm not giving updates elsewhere.

Thanks for letting us know. This is greatly appreciated.

Fair enough, I think it was an overall view of the previous comments here. I genuinely do hope you get a chance of getting the board.

Thanks! I'm hopeful as well, though I've already prepared myself to pay aftermarket prices for this. I'm just happy that more will be in circulation after fulfillment happens for the GB.

True. But the form is multipage and complex enough boting is probably overkill and too much work. More than likely most people will try to grab 2, but that's also a lot of money up front for something that won't be in their hands for 2/3 months. Who knows. Guess we'll see.

Not rushing you or anything, but since you're obviously here watching this thread, it would be nice if you have people an update.

IIRC, the time was supposed to be announced today AM. Just telling people that you'll announce it later or tomorrow AM would stop the unrest.

In the OP for this thread I said I would announce on Monday morning EST.  It is currently Sunday night.
ah sorry, that's my bad then. I was under the impression that it would be today morning est, turns out that was for the practice Google form.

From what I read, there is no Alps plate layout option one could use IBM 5140 keycaps with. Besides the wkl 7u bottom row, you would need split backspace, split right shift and big ass enter but would be missing the split backspace cuts. Is that right?

Ok I guess that's a little restrictive for me. I prefer it to more upgradable or in case I messed up with the soldering.

5pm EST. Good Luck :thumb:

One last pricing update, the shipping price I quoted was only meant for 1 unit, so if you got 2 units you were meant to pay it twice. I very obviously forgot to mention that (the original GB was the same way) so if you get 2 it will only be $15 extra for the second board. Totally my bad forgetting to mention, lots of moving parts here. Hopefully not too horrible of news, good luck all.

Sorry to be that guy weaston but since it different on every GB form, I'd rather play dumb and ask the question: what is the policy on form edits? Should I submit as fast as possible or should I care about the boxes I'm ticking? Or asked more subtly, will you accept edits after the form closes, and will it change my position in the FCFS ranking?

Also, I really can not decide on what I want. What are you guys going for and why?

The shipping prices are a flat rate that you'll get charged on your invoice. No separate shipping invoices. Makes it easier for me so when I have boards in hand I don't have to wait for shipping payments and can ship as quick as I can.

Hey not sure if this was answered before but I see there was four colors in the practice form for the case but one of the options has:
Cerakote (any non-custom color): $50
So does this mean we can chose other colors like white? I dont recall being able to put anything like that in the practice form

Hey weaston - thanks again for doing this. Any chance you would consider releasing the plate files after the GB so we could get our own custom material plates done (I'd like cf personally)?

Many thanks!

I agree with this - there's always the option of allowing a second round of purchases if it doesn't reach 200 with 1 per person.

The unknown schedule nature of this gb makes it feel like a friends, family, and discord cool kids gb only.

I think calling it an “unknown schedule” might be a tad dramatic, it’s in the OP

You mean the "I'll announce it when I feel like it on the day itself" schedule? And probably in one of the kool kidz discord channels first before GH? Ok, cool!

I'm not in any discord servers except some with my friends, i'm not giving updates elsewhere.

I mean obviously that's gonna have to be re-done - plenty of people on GH are not in many (or any) discord servers, as well as not being able to communicate with others who may be able to invite them via other means.

Surely Weaston is not going to just go with a form released on a random discord server after a week/weeks of preparation and anticipation on geekhack specifically, so I don't think there is much reason for panic (though it sucks for people who were staying awake/waking up to fill it at 5 EST of course).

This makes very little sense to me - why would someone apologise for not planning for GH being down? If there's anything to apologise for in the instance that the form was indeed released and has now been closed it's for the absolute bait and switch that was the whole "I'm not in any discords apart from the ones with my friends, nothing to fear" turning into literally doing it on a random discord server just because Geekhack is down for 20 minutes.

It's easy to reschedule, but if the GB was indeed ran on discord I'm sure the people who got in through that would not be too happy if it did happen.

I wouldn't be surprised if Weaston couldn't even access his own thread to edit it. The website was 504/503'd for a solid 10 minutes for me.

he def couldn't access GH. He was trying for like 10 minutes while on discord. Ultimately decided to post the google form link in mechkeys.

The fairest option would be to just run a raffle for 250 units. The group buy was supposed to be EXCLUSIVE to this geek hack thread yet the link was released on discord without warning. Sadly no point in *****ing, nothing is ever fair in the world and people are never held to their word.

I hope other GB runners will learn from Weaston's monumental mistake here.

Locking this temporarily.

Talked to weaston and he will give a post soon, GH was indeed down due to all the traffic to the site. GB link was shared in the r/mk discord in the kb-kustoms section. Don't PM please!

weaston or other mods can unlock when needed.

GSKT-00 GB Update

I would like to apologize for the confusion and the chaos.  As I said before I wanted to have this GB here and I would like to be known as someone who sticks to my word.

I was unable to access GH starting at 4:25.  Nothing would load on any browser I had, I was going to post the link to the form and have the entries disabled until 5.  I kept refreshing and refreshing and nothing happened so I joined the mechkeys discord (which I have been in previously) and said I would post the form there.

I didn't want to postpone the buy because that felt unfair to people that were up outside their normal schedules to try to submit and I felt like there was good overlap between Geekhack users and Discord users.

So here's what's going to happen.

It would be unfair to cancel the orders of the people who already submitted albeit by my error in judgement, so i am keeping the first 200 boards from the Discord sale, but I am also going to post another form here and take the first 100 boards ordered.

The form will open at 5pm EST on January 22nd.  I will update here with a list of users who have a spot in the first 200 before the new form is live.  Anything I said on Discord about 250 units or anything else is nullified.  There will be 200 Discord units and 100 Geekhack units.

That way the people who already ordered will have their submissions respected and those people who were trying to submit on Geekhack will still have a large enough chance.

I am willing to take on the substantial increase in order size so I can make it more fair to everyone and also as an apology for the way it unfolded.  This will of course increase the lead time of the group buy by at least a month if not more, but it is something I am willing to do to make sure those people that were only on Geekhack had a chance, especially after me saying I would run it here only. 

I did mean to run it here only and did not factor in people flooding Geekhack over 30 minutes early stopping me from uploading the form.  I will upload the form a few minutes after this is posted and my inbox is open here and on Discord for any questions or concerns.

Thank you all.

Nothing about the first round was fair so who is to say that the second round will be any better. Regardless it is what it, just wait for the 22nd at 5pm and pray to your gods.

Understandable. I only got on the discord link by luck. Hopefully I'm in that first set, but if not I'll be trying again on this one. It's unfortunate GH couldn't handle the traffic. I get wanting to do it here instead. But I'm glad those that didn't even get to submit will have a second chance. Def need to post the form link an hour in advance and hope that's enough XD.

GSKT-00 GB Update

You were between a rock and a hard place and made a decision. The only thing that matters is how you ultimately decided to handle it once the dust settled. You could have wiped the discord orders clean or doubled down on them. I think both present problems once the initial decision to put it up on discord was made. On the spectrum of fairness, I think your decision runs closest to the most equitable.

Thank you all.

Nah, thank you for considering both sides before coming back with an answer. A lot of people would have probably doubled down once they decided.

Actually it would be fairer if it was 200 for GH and 100 for discord, since GH was the promised official channel.

Next time it’s better to reschedule (since that’s similar to what’s happening now anyway).

This is still good. Betting a big chunk of buyers are in it for flip profit. And now, we have 300 units entering the market.

We all make mistakes from time to time. I definitely agree that there were better alternatives to handle the issue but at least there was some reconciliation. I personally believe that Discord has made group buys worse. There are too many servers to keep track of and it seems that the updates are always scattered between sources.

Might have more to do with schedule. He probably wants to get this done and move on to the next thing. Every delay is additional time until final delivery. Considering the first round of gskt-00 weren't available for sale at all, I'm just happy some more made it into the wild. Even if I didn't get one.

Yeah. It's tough clearly GH doesn't have the bandwidth to handle popular traffic as well. And on Reddit it's easy to lose things or get things burried. Raffle is probably the best way to handle a limited GB, but nothing builds hype like a FCFS. The advantage of discord is just that it's built to handle high volume of traffic.

Haha. Too true. There was probably a slight sliver of panic mixed in. Shoot. I panicked when I realized GH was hosed. Lucked out and saw him post on the discord general that he'd post the link in the kustom channel at 5. Sadly when GH is down, there's no way to communicate with thread watchers anymore.

A schedule that can't absorb a small delay is a schedule that's destined to be reworked a hundred times.

I do hope everyone who wants one badly enough is able to get one, I only recently saw the IC for this and am curious if the gasket design is one that's going to stick.

Or it's just a small run schedule with open ended delivery. Which is what this is. I mean it's just a single man working with a manufacturer. Applying large scale business principals is folly. Not to mention getting manufacturing underway might have been the more pressing concern, possibly due to available windows, then actual delivery. Small custom batch manufacturing like this can be flexible but also personally constraining.

Developing schedules that can absorb some delay isn't exclusively a large scale business principle, it's just practical. I don't think this conversation needs to delve too deep into the manufacturing process and the associated logistics, it can be kept pretty high level.

A post delaying the GB start by 24 hours shouldn't be debilitating to a GB schedule (and wasn't a mistake made by OP as is apparent now).

I think OP is offering an agreeable solution for most, I just also think it's beneficial to get a better solution for next time. GH isn't going to get less busy and there aren't going to be fewer GB's (hopefully).

Usually this is when Puddsy would casually pop in and drop some profound knowledge
Here's an unsolicited one: Nobody here is entitled to anything. Weaston owes nobody. He is allowed to sell his stuffs the way he wants it.

If I were him, I'd pick up my bags, get out of here, and stick to Discord in the future. Tons of designers have gone that route (without anyone knowing it). For non-keycap GBs, one-to-two-hundred loyal followers are more than enough.

He may not owe the community but he owes it to himself (if he cares, which I'd imagine he does from the way I've seen him conduct himself thus far) to remain trustworthy and professional now that he's took up a public GB. Many people take this hobby seriously - whether or not some take it too serious is up for debate, but with the amounts of money we've been seeing pumped into all sorts of buys of late (only going up) it's hard to fault most for just wanting basic quality of life/professionalism when dealing with a buy/seller; eg. not running a GB on discord after it's been said nothing will be done through discord.

Designers can do whatever they want, if they wanna sell boards just to their friends that's up to them. If they wanna run their stuff just through smaller communities on discords that's their prerogative. If the customer wants to pursue the product they'll find a way, as many have here. That is completely different from hyping up a board for weeks on one forum, reaffirm it will be run here exclusively, and then running it elsewhere instead of just waiting it out and then posting here accordingly and communicating with us as for how to proceed going forward. This is not to say I fault Weaston, GH going down is not his fault and I don't even blame him for panicking and releasing the form elsewhere but that doesn't invalidate the fact it was obviously not the best way to handle the situation.

TLDR: Despite not being owed anything, you can't fault people for wanting a certain level of professionalism to be upheld.

Go to the Docs link and search for your username there. If you find it, you're in the GB. If you're not in it, get ready for Wednesday.

with so much interest i think it'd make sense to let other vendor(s) run subsequent gb's for this board at a higher price, some of which can get passed along to op to ensure he is compensated for his design. i'm sure it's more complicated than that in reality, but it's a solution that i think would certainly satisfy all parties.

Totally agree with you, future.

Weaston is doing a big GB and he just can't give a shipping date out of thin air that fast. He is probably still going through invoicing yet alone talking with the factory about shipping dates. There's a lot that goes behind-the-scenes and saying "make 300 boards" just doesn't make factory go "oh, here's a shipping date". There's a bunch of options, figuring out lead times on materials etc. Please be passionate, people!

I never had plans to reduce the unit count per person. Like I said before there were quite a few people in the original buy that have multiples because you can build with such different setups. I can't police people selling a board aftermarket and who's to say that all the people that only wanted one unit aren't going to do it too? It also wouldn't be fair now to not provide the same chance here that others got.

The form will be the same as before, albeit with some slight changes to make sure no one can absolutely autofill it.

Board layout, ano colour, pcb 1 and 2 colour, then 4 pages for 4 plates both alps and MX, cerakote option text field, extra gasket and screw set options, "yes i agree to bow to thee" check mark, and then the most important page; trivia! gotta get this one right or else

Also, side note, weaston already said he will be switching things up a bit so this info will probably be outdated.

There's a username on this list that is exactly equal to the # at the end of my discord tag. I wonder if it's me or just a coincidence? Any way for me to find out so I don't have to try again and clog the form with another unnecessary entry?

All of the keyboard youtube influencers got it in a private buy, built it, and shilled it.

Combination of initial private group buy (low numbers), gasket mount (back when it was rare), half plate (rare), flex cut PCB (rare), and a cool name. Nowadays, these features are more common, so yeah...this board is mostly hype at this point.

Gasket in a board like this usually doesn't really add flex because it's compressed, unless you don't screw the case together all the way.

True. Was just pointing out the difference between prophet and gskt-00. I'm assuming people are here for the flex. Prophets flex comes solely from the flex cuts in the pcb and nylon plate (which flexes slightly on pin mounts, and across the surface of the whole board, hence the uniform feel). The flex here is clearly very different with the gaskets. Having major flex in the middle with slightly stiffer flex towards edges.

If you meant this board doesn't have flex, your sorely mistaken. There are cutouts and the gaskets aren't fully compressed. That's the whole point.

There might be some coming up. Right now there's none really in the pipeline. Polaris should start delivering after CNY, so mechmarket should have some people are getting rid of. I'm sure this won't be the last gasket we see before year's end.

I updated the OP and am posting it here too.

Here is the practice form for those who want to familiarize themselves with the basic options before the form opens tomorrow: https://forms.gle/iwEtyXgobrtZYiDY7

Again it does not contain all fields that the final form will, but is just to give you a chance to get familiar with the less straightforward parts of the form.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

I will release the final list of options and usernames for people to confirm tomorrow after the form closes.

First page is your personal info, email user name etc. then it's a lot of multiple choice pages. Board layout, ano colour, pcb 1 and 2 colour, then 4 pages for 4 plates both alps and MX, cerakote option text field, extra gasket and screw set options, "yes i agree to bow to thee" check mark, and then the most important page; trivia! gotta get this one right or else

The form asks the cerakote option to be filled in like H[colour code] - [name of colour].

Since I'm probably not gonna be fast enough for tomorrow's form, any recommendations for other boards with similar levels of flex?

If you just want to test what flex feels like, a plateless build in a tray mount with the center stem removed will give you a sense of it. I've never type on a GSKT-00 so I don't know how it compares but there's definitely extreme levels of flex.

Keep in mind Lightning's flex test was done with an acrylic half plate, it varies a lot depending on full/half plate and material. My half alu has flex if I force it, but it doesn't move much when I'm casually typing like my Whale with a POM half plate does.

Oh this makes me sad as I went for a pom half plate not thinking there would be much difference between half alu and half pom in term of flex but pom would provide a better sound profile. Hopefully the plate file will be released so I can get another plate cut if necessary.

I ended up swapping my aluminum half plate for a POM half plate. I never tried them side by side since i just swapped plates for the build, but I agree with pr0x that aluminum is slightly stiffer. The sound profile for POM is a bit more uniform as an aluminum half gives the perimeter keys more of a clack to them.  In the end I prefer POM, but it all comes down to preference.

It's not new. HHKB has been praised for its flex for years. A good amount of older kustoms were meant to flex also. It's just a hype cycle; we are out of the "t h i c c" meme and back in for the flex. And in the end the two are great, it's just different feelings.

Flex is gentler on your fingers, more ergonomic. For me, I find it less fatiguing for longer typing sessions, especially with lighter springs that are very easy to bottom out with

Post by: DALExSNAIL on Wed, 22 January 2020, 12:23:41
Honestly I feel flex is more the opposite of "unexplored", if anything "revisited" is a more appropriate term. Hell even the recent gasket mounting surge (read as "flood that will over-saturate the market until fomo dies down"), is just a revisit of an already existing idea.

Influencers are shilling both ideas because they're good options for sound and feel, and have been since they were first introduced.

Just be happy you don't have to spend 1K+ for gasket mounting and relief cuts on boards that have mediocre ano and elitist owners with a death grip on 'never-going-to-be-built' kits anymore.

The whole point of this hobby is that we cannot find the keyboard we want on the mass market so we attempt to "make" a custome one as close to our personal ideals as possible.
Why does it annoy you at all that other people prefer flex instead of stiff typing feeling?
Nobody is wrong or right here. Chill. Don't be such a boomer.

The whole point of this hobby is that we cannot find the keyboard we want on the mass market so we attempt to "make" a custome one as close to our personal ideals as possible.
Why does it annoy you at all that other people prefer flex instead of stiff typing feeling?
Nobody is wrong or right here. Chill. Don't be such a boomer.



Uh ??? Alright, I didn't say anything rude, I didn't say it was bad or good, I just asked what does it bring to a keyboard, thankfully some other guys replied that it can better ergonomics wise, and it can be better for long typing sessions. I thank them btw. Why would u call me boomer and why do u say it annoys me ? What hurt you in my comment, I really have no clue...
Anyway, have a good day.

Very correct indeed. We have all kinds of boards in the custom market because of hype and looks but at the end of the day we're using keyboards as a tool and we're just "hunting" for one that is the most enjoyable for each of us. I'm fine with what I use and what I enjoy but I'm still open to try new configurations.

It's preference.  If the softer bottom out of the GSKT is less tiring for someone to type on than a tray mount with a steel plate, then the GSKT is more ergonomic for them than the tray mount.

Who knows, they might actually have weaker fingers, haha. Personally I've never felt fatigue, but I also take breaks. I guess if I was forced to type non-stop for 8 hours I'd probably feel the burn, lol.

I would like to thank you for reconsidering opening the link to the GH community. I believe that this is the best compromise you could make given the circumstances. I would also like to apologize for all of the hate going around the initial launch and hope that this re-opening stops that from coming your way.

Really hoping I can get in on this!

Sorry to hear that man, that's unfortunate. Hope you still were able to join! I'm pretty sure the last question has no correct answer, it was just to mess up anyone who tried using a bot to fill out the form, so don't worry whether you were right or not.

The narrator also clearly said, "The world may never know" so an earlier comment saying that might actually be the right answer! Hahaha

In my mind the answer is 3, but the trivia didn't matter, was just to try to deter any automated fill outs.

That's a pretty good way to deter any bots (if any!). Pretty fun question nonetheless!

Thank you for linking the sheet again.  The sheet is now updated with the winners from today (1/22).  I will start compiling orders and try to get up a list for people to confirm as soon as I can, might take a day or two because of the volume.

As for the break down of single vs double boards, 76% of people only got one board.

Invoicing will start after all orders are confirmed, again expect a few days of those getting sent out, lots of people.

Thanks all, sorry about the form being a little late, google was even slow for me.

Looking forward to everyone getting their 00 :thumb:

I think it's an easy 2-3x flip because the base price was so low.

That said, that would be stupid because the main draw of this board is that it's affordable. It doesn't do anything that hasn't been done to death now.

1. Fair point, I will consider something less prone to problems with high traffic in the future.
2. This is not a basic thing, this is a thing I would want out of most GBs.  I like to build the same board multiple ways and have extra setups for almost everything I own, if I could have gotten extra units as part of the GB then I would have.  I wasn't going to restrict units to 1 per person just because people have a fear of flipper culture in the community.  Some people who got in right now for only one could sell it the second they get it for some higher price.  I can't police being afraid of flipping and I personally like having multiples.
3. Fair point for the first part.  The idea that only "influencers" own the original 00s is simply not true.  In fact, most of them were just my friends or acquaintances before I ever even thought of running a small buy for it.  Some of them went on to do bigger or better things than they were doing way back when, but in no way were they targeted high clout people.  There was no marketing stunt to try to increase hype by keeping it small, I just wanted to make a board for friends.  I'd love to be able to take credit for some masterful hype scheme but I can't.
4. It was a fair critique.

Shout out to Weaston for making the best out of this whole GB situation and letting another 100 boards in knowing the extra work that'll have to be put in. Hindsight is 20/20 and people are always going to criticize what you did and didn't do but I felt you did what you could given the circumstances.

Number 1 doesn't make much sense for FCFS format GB.  If the exact time is not announced, wouldn't that mean interested buyer would have to constantly refresh the site/form to find out when it goes live, causing the site to crash even faster?

Instead of a unit count, having a spot count that accounts for someone ordering two would match a GB FCFS format closer, IMO. 150 spots where each person could order 2, then if you wanted to hit that 300 (assuming not everyone wants 2) you could raffle the remaining x units out.

Idk **** about this stuff though so just talking out my ass. An idea for future single form, multi-unit, GB. May cause a few less people to get salty.

I genuinely like this idea. Hopefully others can implement a system like this so FCFS people are happy and a raffle satisfies the greatest number of people possible. Salt will always come with something like this, I myself being guilty after the Discord run.
I appreciate what Weaston has done and hope this doesn't put a terrible taste in his mouth for a potential R3.

funny how artisan makers have zero problem with this

you could always raffle for spots only and mail out a form to winners to fill in options later? like 90% of board raffles out there

One of the main strengths of the board is that it's minimal and (relatively) cheap - I was going to say say it'd be surprising to see many of them be flipped but considering the fact that people love wasting money it's bound to happen regardless.

I would like to think that the reason I didn't make it in the GB was because I got that tootsie pop question wrong lul

1. Fair point, I will consider something less prone to problems with high traffic in the future.
2. This is not a basic thing, this is a thing I would want out of most GBs.  I like to build the same board multiple ways and have extra setups for almost everything I own, if I could have gotten extra units as part of the GB then I would have.  I wasn't going to restrict units to 1 per person just because people have a fear of flipper culture in the community.  Some people who got in right now for only one could sell it the second they get it for some higher price.  I can't police being afraid of flipping and I personally like having multiples.
3. Fair point for the first part.  The idea that only "influencers" own the original 00s is simply not true.  In fact, most of them were just my friends or acquaintances before I ever even thought of running a small buy for it.  Some of them went on to do bigger or better things than they were doing way back when, but in no way were they targeted high clout people.  There was no marketing stunt to try to increase hype by keeping it small, I just wanted to make a board for friends.  I'd love to be able to take credit for some masterful hype scheme but I can't.
4. It was a fair critique.

Can confirm number 3. I'm a no one in the community but I'm friends with Weaston so I have an original run 00.

I'm sure this is gonna cause the hate to rain down upon me, but I got 2 boards. But I want to do two builds (wkl and std) to fulfill my years goal of 3 60s. Shoot I would have got 3 if I could have, but will look elsewhere for my hhkb build. Plan on using both, switching out PCBs/switches/plates on the fly. Expect these to be my daily drivers for the foreseeable future (I won't be leaving home without one). And regardless of increased count, or increased spots, etc. there were always going to be people who missed out. That's just the way these things go. And increasing the GB size to greater numbers can be a ridiculous thing to manage for these releases.

So it's not just all flippers, there's valid reasons people could want 2. I get why weaston would allow that. It's always going to be rough, and I was disappointed I didn't get in on the first round, but I didn't blame the people who got 2. If I'd missed the second, there is still a full year of GBs ahead of us (probably loaded with gasket 60s), so plenty of other adrenaline inducing rushes to buy, haha. I already had other backup options in the pipeline.

That said, thanks weaston for giving us this opportunity. Can't wait to let the combos flow.

Its probably safe to say that group buys like this are done out of respect/appreciation for the community rather than profit. The logistical nightmare of working with both suppliers and customers throughout this process, from design to final shipment, far outweighs the marginal profit I'd HOPE weaston is able to take for himself for all the work.

Give me a break.

Why do we even have to compare or contrast the two? Making money and chasing fame aren't crimes, and organizing any groupbuy is work, no matter how small or large it is. You can try to make a buck, get prestige, and give to the community all at once. They aren't exclusive to each other.

Groupbuys like this are done for money. They are also done to get a name. They are also done to get nice boards in the hands of enthusiasts.

I don't think there is anything wrong with doing things for the money.

To think he is doing this GB out of the goodness of his heart and nothing more is just silly.

I have no idea of his margins for this project, but, at a minimum, he will boost his recognition for subsequent projects.

I've gotten CNC quotes and, at the price that he's selling for, the profit margin is going to be thin, but it's also not nothing.

Just an idea. Instead of doing FCFS which is pretty rough for some people; personnally i was REALLY stressed when i filled everything, tried to be as fast as i could.
But why not just open for 5 minutes like some artisan makers do and Raffle in this window? It's a bit more random YES but it may be more fair for everyone (if there is no dibs or cherrypicking).

I'd prefer this format personnaly. But as long as not everyone win there will still be salt in the GB.

FCFS keeps people from claiming its rigged. People who lose raffles blame the runner for rigging the draw. People who lose FCFS blame the system.

Well sure, but thats probably more work than a runner wants to do. I'm not saying they shouldn't do that. I'm just saying that FCFS is very minimal effort for a runner. It's not about being fair, its about seeming fair. We don't even know if the list created from the fcfs was done so without bias. We don't have timestamps, or a list of losers and their timings. We only have a list of people getting the board. Nobody questions that, but they WILL question a raffle without a streamed drawing

I'm not particularly good at FCFS even (didn't win here eg.) and I still think it's way better and fairer than raffling stuff off - at least when the amount of units is fairly high. I can see raffles working well for artisans that do runs of like 5 caps with 15000 entries, but in most board FCFS it tends to reward those who are dedicated and interested enough.

This is a pretty bad example regardless because of the fact that the google form was down and the spam refreshing being staggered ruined some people's chances but when the form stays, I think it's generally the way to go.

I really don't get why people are so caught up with potential "flipping" for this board.

First of all, there were more than 250 individuals interested in this board -- that is a fact.

If each person were to get only one board, it is almost guaranteed that the flip market would have FEWER boards and thus result in higher aftermarket prices. After all, some people just want the board because they actually want it.

Since people were allowed to buy 2 boards each, mechmarket will have many more boards up for sale (yes, from flippers), but the price would be LOWER since there would be more boards that people are trying to sell!

So, to those who are bummed they missed out and salty that people could purchase 2 boards each, at least you will be able to get them on mechmarket for a lower price than if you missed the group buy and units were limited to just one per person. And of course, you'd have a higher chance of getting a board from mechmarket too since there would be more boards purchased for the intention of flipping. More boards to flip = more boards available ASAP on mechmarket = higher chance you can find a board if you didn't get in the first 2 rounds.

Remember that just in the first few minutes of original form going up, more than 300 responses were submitted. As with the nature of group buys, lots of people will miss out. Let's say theoretically the board was limited to 1 per person. Chances are, you'd probably be unable to get a board either. There would be only 70 extra spots, and given the massive hype for this board, 70 is not all that much. For those who did miss out, you'd be paying higher prices aftermarket for this board (if it were limited to 1 per person) than if it were limited to up to 2 units per person. So y'all, look on the bright side.

It's a tale as old as time. People will bash on flipping and flippers for eternity. Don't try to bring logic into the argument. It only increases the screeching from both sides.

The issues of GH and Google being unable to handle traffic aside...
Would a Vickrey auction really be practical for a groupbuy with this kind of unit count? It definitely has its benefits for smaller batches for sure, (and this is hypothetical) but I think for a groupbuy with 200+ units I think it might end up hurting people who were looking to get a really nice board at a more affordable pricepoint. (i.e. they get priced out even when the board would have retailed for $250ish)

When we're talking about $500-800 Keycults, sure. I can definitely see how the Vickrey auction model is more beneficial. A mixed approach seems to work for Keycult as well, but I don't think a Vickrey auction is the be-all-end-all solution.

Agreed. A vickrey auction wouldn't have been good. And I'm not against flipping at all. Flipping is great for those who missed out on a groupbuy. But when you have a lot of people attempting to get a limited stock its balls. Now people are going to have to pay ~$400-$500 (guessing here) for a board that would have cost 250. I can understand getting a few extra Polaris boards or the upcoming Prophet board because they are unlimited gb but not a 200 unit limited run.

Sorry for the wait on the order confirmation sheet.  I am sorting through the orders and trying to get some initial order issues sorted.  I should be posting the sheet tomorrow and then we'll go from there.  Thanks for hanging in.

Honestly the practice form, the first actual form, and a friend recreating what we remember of the first form to practice is how I managed getting in on time for the second most likely. That and people on this thread recommending to hotkey the common inputs like email, name, username, etc. Had honestly never done that before, but now it's there for future FCFS. The effort seems ridiculous maybe, but I'm excited anyway. Haha

It's now got me considering adding a hot key layer just for common fields for forms I fill out at work.

And that's the real kicker. I had to do this at work, with my older MBP with crappy butterfly switches (my beater work tofu was at my desk), and with a chrome managed by my company with chrome autofill for even basic things like email permanently turned off, in the middle of testing software we delivered this weekend. And setting up hotkeys on a MBP is a lengthy process of appscript and permissions. My coworkers we're def like, what are you doing ???.

For real though, I attribute me getting in this time on the second run partly because I saw that post giving us those tips. The one about zooming out so that there was less scrolling was actually big brain. After I filled in the first plate options I zoomed out completely because I just had to hit none for the rest. Shout out that dude.

First page is your personal info, email user name etc. then it's a lot of multiple choice pages. Board layout, ano colour, pcb 1 and 2 colour, then 4 pages for 4 plates both alps and MX, cerakote option text field, extra gasket and screw set options, "yes i agree to bow to thee" check mark, and then the most important page; trivia! gotta get this one right or else

Also, side note, weaston already said he will be switching things up a bit so this info will probably be outdated.

Also also, it's common speedrunner tradition to not hold secret strats so I will give you an extra tip. Zoom out on the page to have more info on the screen at once. Less scrolling, more time save!

And if you think I am leaking important info that will mess with the competition you can go and sh

Thanks, yo. This is what I was wondering just like a gist of what to expect.
Idk what keyboards you use, but I have a layer on a QMK board that outputs strings such as my paypal email, GH username, etc. I suggest getting that setup. Wouldn't hurt to set up addresses too, but I doubt you would need that for this form

This post and the one that is being quoted is the one that really helped me. Hope it finds you some success in future boards. (Also sorry if this is an incorrect way to reply to the guy above, I'm still new to Geekhack posts and comments)

I was working through some google issues so you might have received a few emails and some of the sheets might be dead so sorry for the extra emails and thanks for bearing with me.

I have sent an email with a sheet containing the order number and the associated username to all the people I have emails for.  If you did not receive an email with the order number sheet then I do not have a correct email for you so please make sure to pm me so we can fix that.  You will still be able to view that sheet if someone sends you a link, so please take the time to make sure you personally received an email with it, otherwise like I said your email needs to be fixed.

Here is a link to a sheet with all order numbers and options.  As changes happen they will reflect on the sheet so make sure to keep checking back after I have said that I adjust your order: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/2/d/e/2PACX-1vRLejPDSIHsqjFcKOUVX6FZ2zLQnlj2-OIckvNC3iRKImaBA0kIa1XRI-EWQGybS8AOizBPLgyG1SM_/pubhtml?gid=0&single=true

Instructions for modifying your order, including what changes are allowed are outlined in the sheet.

My inbox is open here and on Discord, so feel free to send me a message.  Let me know if there are any questions/concerns.  Thank you all.

Edits are accepted until Monday January 27th at 5pm EST.  After that I will start sending invoices.

(Again there was another sheet I accidentally sent out, which was inaccurate, so please only reference the one above.  Thanks.)

For mailing i'd recommend to use a service like Mailchimp which has a free offer for the size of the GB: https://mailchimp.com/

It would be easier for you to handle all the updates and so on.

No, it just comes with a tube of silicone caulk that you need to put between the plate and the PCB.

Some people seem to have responded with wanting an extra plate/plate layout, but not selecting a plate option, or selecting they don't want a plate but then selecting a plate option.

Eg. No to Alps 2 but chose Polycarbonate

Yeah i'll be cleaning that up as I go through and edit. I thought I got them all already but seems not, no biggie.

In response to earlier, yes each case comes with 1 gasket and 1 set of screws.

Some other data points on the orders after cleaning up some of the entries when it was released on Friday:

- Total of 447 plates
- 217 are full (48.55%), 214 are half (47.84%)
- 224 are alu (50.11%), 102 are PC (22.82%), 97 POM (21.70%), 18 Steel (4.02%), 6 Acrylic (1.34%)
- 77 people got just 1 plate; 92 got 2, 24 got 3, 27 got 4, 1 person got 6, and 5 people have no plates (at least one of these people put partial/incomplete answers for plate options)

I ignored the Alps entries where a layout or full/half wasn't specified.

I've gotten through about half of the change requests.  If I changed it then I responded, so if you have not received a response then you have not had your order updated yet.  Even if I did respond please check the public order sheet and double check, it's entirely possible I messed up or missed something so let me know if I did. 

Remember requests for edits end tomorrow at 5pm so get them in before then.

Assuming production start is going to be delayed with the almost total shutdown of Chinese companies?
You have an article on this? I know a lot of tourist destinations, shops and restaurants have closed. But I didn't see anything about factories yet.

This is all I got on this topic.

I believe weaston is giving 2 weeks to pay the invoice so there may not be much delay unless there’s a wait to get into a production queue with the manufacturer.

Yeah. That's what I was thinking though. 2 weeks delay usually doesn't just mean 2 weeks product delay. Factories in China will reshuffle their priorities, etc. Some stuff will get canceled. We'll just have to see.

I'm fine with it honestly. Hope they get through this hard time.

Yeah true. I wonder if the lunar new year shutdowns already occurred? The new year was the 25th but not sure of typical closing schedule for the holiday.

Did not have time to get to edits yesterday so the last wave of edits happen today then we're on to invoicing. I'd like to have all the invoices out by Sunday so we'll shoot for that.

Yes even with the shutdown i'm going to collect payment for the GB so we're ready when they come back. My fab doesn't come back from New Year holiday until next Monday so once they're back hopefully we'll get a better idea of when they're back open and operational.

All changes should have been made.  I would wait another hour for Google to show it all.  If something is still messed up because I did it wrong then let me know, but there are no more changes being accepted.

Link again for the curious: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vRLejPDSIHsqjFcKOUVX6FZ2zLQnlj2-OIckvNC3iRKImaBA0kIa1XRI-EWQGybS8AOizBPLgyG1SM_/pubhtml

I am working to get all the invoices made and sent out, it should be Sunday when the bulk of them (hopefully all) are sent out.

I am starting to send out invoices.

They will not go out all at once, they will go out as I create them.  Might take me like 2-3 days to get to them all but they will be sent out. 

Please do not pm me saying you have not received an invoice yet if I have not said that they are all sent out. 

If something on your order is still wrong and my fault then let me know and I will edit it, but this does not mean changes, this means pre-existing message history and me not having made a change.  I am 99% sure that everything is updated so just saying that as a warning.

You'll have 2 weeks to pay from the day the last one goes out so that it's fair to everyone.  Like I said should be 2-3 days from now worst case and I'll be done sending them.

Thank you all.

Edit: All good, they're getting sent. 

A note about non-aluminum plates, because of how my invoicing system is working this time around it may show a different color variant for the non-aluminum plates like POM that only had one variant, don't worry about that, it's just for me to keep track of plates easier, they are still the colors that have been previously decided on.  Thanks.

Alright I did another big wave today.  There are only 12 left so I'll get to those in the morning.  There are a few people than pmed me about mistakes on their invoices so if you didn't double check please do.  I'll be fixing those few invoices and sending the rest tomorrow.  Thanks for bearing with me while I got this all sorted.

Since tomorrow will be the last day of invoices, that makes February 21st the final day for payment.  If you haven't paid by then your order will be cancelled and you'll have to try for some small possible amount of extras if there are any after all is said and done.  If there are too many unpaid invoices then we'll have to do a small and fast raffle or something for the remaining spots.  I really don't want to drag this out past the 21st so please get those invoices paid, thank you.

To reiterate, last day for payment is the 21st.  If all invoices are paid before then, then we can submit earlier. 

I'll update the Title and OP tomorrow after this last bit of invoice housekeeping is taken care of.

Thanks all :thumb:

Small update about payments.

It looks like about 200 invoices have been paid which is great.  If yours is outstanding please remember to pay by this Friday (2/21).  I have been working with a few people on payment issues and changes of address so please don't hesitate to reach out if you need something from me before paying.

I am waiting on a reply from my factory about when they are opening back up so please bear with me while we wait on that.  Thanks all, looking to get this all submitted as soon as they're ready :thumb:

Any idea if the plate files will be released down the road? I couldn't justify getting an alps plate during the group buy, but I'd love the option later on.

I actually just got my hands on some alps orange, so I'm interested in this too! I would 100% buy an alps plate if any extras go up or something.

From reading OP, unpaid invoices would mean your spot goes to the next person in line. So all 200 boards will be made.

They are!  I submitted the prelim order today after a lot of sorting and finalizing and they'll get back to me in a few days (probably even a week tbh) with the finalized order and then they'll collect payment.  The order has so many parts so I'm expecting it takes a few days for them to get through it all and get back to me.

With the current situation, I think we all expect delays. Originally there was a 90 day estimate. I imagine that this went up with the larger than expected order size and the many other issues our world is currently facing. I think we'd just like to know when that 90 day (likely, much, longer) timer will start. Thanks a bunch!

The GSKT-00 will be manufactured when it's manufactured. Weaston said that he will provide updates when he has any to give. Making dumb comments on this thread isn't going to speed up the process.

I mean when you release the order form on discord and/or reddit you really should be ready for those kinds of comments, much more so than usual. I'm sure they're the first of many, and I assume Weaston knows what he's in for.

People are asking for updates because Weaston said the factory will respond in a week and it has been 3 weeks. Its not about being impatient, i believe that factory accepting the payment is an important update. I'll happily wait over 6 months for my g00sket and im sure most ppl can wait too.

Sorry the whole corona situation made me forget to post an update.  The order was submitted late last week.  Quoted manufacturing time was 75 business days, which comes out to 15 weeks from now.  So we're looking at around the end of July for manufacturing being done, but I would guess it would get closer into August.  That puts us on target to ship roughly by the end of summer.  Of course don't take those dates as absolutes, timelines can always change, but I'll do my best to keep it on track.

Now we wait  :thumb:

Hi weaston! Thanks for the update!!! A little confused, 75 days is about 11 weeks, not 15. 75 days from today would be June 9. So is your calculation of end of July adding shipping time? Happy to wait whatever duration it takes, just want to make sure you didn't mistype something.

"As far as what to expect out of me for updates, I will not update with any information unless something is happening.  Meaning when boards ship to me, pcbs ship, we get components, etc then there will be an update.  Otherwise, I will not have anything to say.  Having weekly updates that are nothing more than me saying "still waiting" are not useful and will be forgone."

The GB post for this says that this is the "first in the GSKT series," so it's reasonable to think that there is a possibility of either other boards in the GSKT line or iterations on this board.

Hey all, time for an update!

Manufacturing was scheduled to be done right around this week, but the manufacturer just got back to me last night and need about 2-3 weeks more time.  They said they were having some difficulty making sure the gray anodizing was matching and consistent so they are re-machining about 40 gray units. (this does not mean they will be sending me 40 extra inconsistent units as extras afaik)

As for acquiring other parts, we're still about a month away from receiving pcbs but I have been acquiring boxes and other packing materials.  I will be ordering screws/bumpons/gaskets this coming week more than likely as the turnarounds are much quicker.

One thing to be said is there may be some strangeness with shipping.  I was planning on shipping USPS but because of everything happening with them right now I will probably have to use another provider for these boards.  I will try to find an option that is at the same cost I initially quoted out, and will keep everyone updated on that front.

TLDR: Another 2-3 weeks machining because gray anodizing has been difficult to match, otherwise mostly on track.

Thank you for your patience  :thumb:

Thanks for the update. As for the shipping, I would like to pay extra for DHL Express or UPS Express if those options are available. Any package sent with a normal shipping option currently spends up to 1.5 months in German customs and I'd like to avoid that for a board like this.

Hey all, time for an update!

Manufacturing was scheduled to be done right around this week, but the manufacturer just got back to me last night and need about 2-3 weeks more time.  They said they were having some difficulty making sure the gray anodizing was matching and consistent so they are re-machining about 40 gray units. (this does not mean they will be sending me 40 extra inconsistent units as extras afaik)

As for acquiring other parts, we're still about a month away from receiving pcbs but I have been acquiring boxes and other packing materials.  I will be ordering screws/bumpons/gaskets this coming week more than likely as the turnarounds are much quicker.

One thing to be said is there may be some strangeness with shipping.  I was planning on shipping USPS but because of everything happening with them right now I will probably have to use another provider for these boards.  I will try to find an option that is at the same cost I initially quoted out, and will keep everyone updated on that front.

Also down to pay for DHL Express. They've been very consistent in these times.

Awesome and thanks for the update. If my address has changed (updated on PayPal however), do you need the new information sent to you in some means or will you be okay since PayPal info was updated?

This. I've had lousy experiences with USPS for international shipments even prior to this and would absolutely be willing to pay extra for DHL Express as they've been the most reliable for me both in terms of shipment and in customs collection. That being said, thanks for the promising update!

I can see you running into issues with C3 stabs because the tolerances on those are too big, but with cherry ones, you can probably get away with it.

I would be pretty surprised if Weaston didn't order any extras, but given the hype surrounding this board even before the keeb hype train of 2020 hit hard, I suspect it will be pretty difficult to get one.

Generally extras are ordered in the event that some units fail QC, no? Is that not standard operating procedure?

Update is in fact avail boys.

Paid for the boards last night actually, so they should be shipping soon.  Pray to your preferred gods that they don't have any problems in transit.

As for extras, I ordered a few yes, but not enough to have a large extra sale or anything, mostly just to keep a few on hand to make sure everyone is satisfied once they have them in hand.

Also any QC issues will be worked directly with the factory and replacements will be issued before anything ever ships out, and that doesn't really count as the extras.  The few extras are more of like a just in case.

Now for the not great news, which is the PCB delay.  Because of a few factors, the PCB production has been delayed quite a bit and probably won't be finished till after the new year.  But the fab has been paid so no worries there, just making sure the files are right for how they want them proved a bit difficult in addition to some other things.  So yeah probably won't be finished with PCBs till at least the new year conservatively.

So that means the boards should be shipping to you guys some time in Q1 of 2021 (hopefully but of course no promises, things can always happen and things can change), but I am hopeful for everything being done in that time.

I will be starting QC and working through any potential issues once the boards show up hopefully in the next few weeks, so I mean honestly with the amount of QC to do it would probably take until January anyway since I would be doing it all after work, so the pcb delay isn't all that crazy to digest, I think it will end up being around when the cases would be ready to go anyway.

So yeah that's where we are, probably not shipping till Q1 because of PCBs and the need to do QC but boards are paid for and coming soon and I'll take some pictures so you guys can see the mess that my spare bedroom will be for the holiday season.

Thanks for bearing with me through it and anyone who has emailed or messaged about address changes, don't worry I have seen it and will respond eventually.

No the board manufacturer does not do the cerakoting, I work with someone local to me.  Yes you're right those units may take some more time to get done, so I suppose I should start qc on the silver units first and get that boll rolling.  The turnaround time on those should still be within what I already mentioned I would think.  But yeah definitely something else to consider as far as all the moving parts.

You guys know if the Alps ABS plate weaston sourced were in fact 1.2mm, or were maybe thinner, say, ~1.0mm? I ask because I can't seem to find a plate cutting service who can do plastic at 1.2mm.

Edit: looks like (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104130.msg2851214#msg2851214) there were no ABS plates for the official GB, as weaston could only get ABS plates @ 1.5mm. I think this is why, in Taeha Types's GSKT-00 build video, he mentioned that the switches didn't really stay in place that well: it was because @ 1.5mm thickness, Alps switches don't really lock in; the four little switch "wings" are just flexed back to accommodate that weird in-between switch position in the plate.

Update time fellas

00 cases and plates were all delivered over the last few days so I'll start slowly QCing them and taking care of anything that needs fixing with that.  Will be taking the units to be cerakoted to my guy sometime soon to get those started as well.  So if you were on the fence about your color please let me know asap.  I will also go through and finally respond to all the address changes and make necessary updates there as well.  Still waiting on PCBs to finish but we have some samples coming soon so hopefully that will all be sorted by the time these are all ready to ship.

For now enjoy the promised picture of my spare bedroom, now keyboard cave, and have a happy holidays.

Update time fellas

00 cases and plates were all delivered over the last few days so I'll start slowly QCing them and taking care of anything that needs fixing with that.  Will be taking the units to be cerakoted to my guy sometime soon to get those started as well.  So if you were on the fence about your color please let me know asap.  I will also go through and finally respond to all the address changes and make necessary updates there as well.  Still waiting on PCBs to finish but we have some samples coming soon so hopefully that will all be sorted by the time these are all ready to ship.

For now enjoy the promised picture of my spare bedroom, now keyboard cave, and have a happy holidays.

He hasn't replied to my message on GH either. Guessing he hasn't gone through them all yet, but I do hope he sees my message before the boards go off to cerakoting as I sent him a message regarding that about two months ago.

Please let us know when the boards will go off to cerakoting so we can make sure you see our message before it is too late? Thanks, weaston!

Update Time

I have been qc-ing and everything looks really nice.  The only thing worth mentioning is that a lot of the units have some slight discoloration around the screw holes on the inside of the boards (especially on tops).  This is more or less inevitable and is small and does not affect the outside look/fitment/otherwise so I'm just giving you all a heads up.

PCBs are nearing the final checks and should be shipping soon.  We had and tested a proto from the fab and we are just double checking everything now before those are finished and shipped.

Cerakote has not started yet since I was a bit more worried about getting the pcbs in.  Will be taking those this month hopefully.

Now for the ****e, not so cool, update.  Since I am an idiot (sometimes), the files I sent to the fab for this production run did not have the bumpon cuts on the bottom case that I mentioned in the IC that I added for this run.  I apologize to all of you for the mishap on my part, totally my fault.  So, since they don't have any bumpon cuts, I'll be providing strips of silicone for you to put on the bottom as you wish.  This is actually what all the original units had as well and it does not affect usability or anything (I think it sounds a little nicer personally).  So yeah, totally my fault there and I am sorry for it, but you'll still have something to stick on the bottom.

As for address updates, I have not gotten to a lot of them.  But don't worry, I am not shipping anything until they are all taken care of.

You guys know if the Alps ABS plate weaston sourced were in fact 1.2mm, or were maybe thinner, say, ~1.0mm? I ask because I can't seem to find a plate cutting service who can do plastic at 1.2mm.

Edit: looks like (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104130.msg2851214#msg2851214) there were no ABS plates for the official GB, as weaston could only get ABS plates @ 1.5mm. I think this is why, in Taeha Types's GSKT-00 build video, he mentioned that the switches didn't really stay in place that well: it was because @ 1.5mm thickness, Alps switches don't really lock in; the four little switch "wings" are just flexed back to accommodate that weird in-between switch position in the plate.

Correct ABS plates were not of a reliable thickness for alps from the fab I used to use for them.  That being said, the alps plates I ordered this round I ordered from my main fab and they clip wonderfully.  Of course no ABS but the plates are all really nice and of proper thickness (1.2mm).

I'm willing to trust that all the boards will be shipped, but this was my concern as well. I moved during the GB period, and I reached out requesting a shipping address change by both email and Geekhack PM. I didn't get a response, which makes me a bit nervous that my request(s) got lost and will not be honored... which would mean that my keyboard gets sent to an address that I don't live at anymore, hundreds of miles away.

He has stated multiple times that he will get to those pms with address changes. I presume the reason he hasn’t gotten to em is because he isn’t shipping yet.

gh shows last active as april 16, so it would appear as though that is the case. i'm sure by now he knows how badly we all want an update. i hope nothing is seriously wrong in his personal life, and i hope nothing is seriously wrong with the boards. realistically though we're helpless to do anything in this scenario, so i don't see much of a point in continuing to bump this thread. we've seen the boards in the previous update so we know we're not getting lumina'd, so it seems like just continuing to be patient and wait for an update is our only option.

Exactly. Bumping isn’t working. Obviously. Best we can all do is just wait. You’d think people in this hobby would understand waiting is 98% of the deal.

Guys relax, Weaston personally mined the aluminum ore to make the keyboards that's why it is taking over a year. Hand mined by designer = flip for bigger profit. Oh and of course he cannot reply to your change of address emails, the guy has been very busy and mining is a very tiring job.    /s

Yo long overdue update time!

I was waiting until the pcbs got to me before I said anything because I didn't want to make another update of "just waiting" basically.  So pcbs have arrived and I am in the process of unpacking and sorting them all.  Which means I can finally start shipping soon!

As for cerakoting, it has been hard to coordinate with my guy because of covid but they will 100% be getting cerakoted by next month and shouldn't take long, so the cerakote units will probably be among the last to ship.

As for address changes.  There have been many people that have sent me multiple changes, and because of that, I have been waiting to take care of them all when I was actually ready to ship rather than do it way ahead of time and have to do multiples for the same order.  So you'll start seeing responses back from me about those very soon as well.  Rest assured if you sent a message about an address change it will be taken care of.

I'd also like to apologize for the wait time because of the pcbs.  There were some miscommunications on both sides as we had not worked on an order this large with the manufacturer we used and it just took too long in general so I'm sorry for that.  I understand the frustration, I've been part of group buys before too and know how it feels when things get delayed, but it's just part of the risk of it all I suppose.  At least you guys will soon be getting your boards!

And finally here are some pictures of the new pcbs :thumb:

That is, in fact, what you agreed to when you joined this GB. So yes, that is how this works.

As far as what to expect out of me for updates, I will not update with any information unless something is happening.  Meaning when boards ship to me, pcbs ship, we get components, etc then there will be an update.  Otherwise, I will not have anything to say.  Having weekly updates that are nothing more than me saying "still waiting" are not useful and will be forgone.

Title: Re: [GB] GSKT-00 (QC-ing, sorting)
Post by: Fnzzy on Sun, 30 May 2021, 18:20:22
I am probably throwing what little GH rep I had into the bin with this.

I don't think any of us is pretending that this group buy is running smoothly. Not only have I gotten quicker replies from group buy runners from China who barely spoke any English and had very limited access to Discord (according to them the application was blocked completely), but I have gotten a product from a group buy within the promised time frame that had no communication at all.

Not only has Weaston produced the wrong keyboard file (remember that?), he also didn't take the 4 months it's taken to receive the PCBs to start cerakoating. And seeing how the boards still aren't shipped over a month after getting the PCBs I can only assume he also didn't use the time to pre-package the boards to speed the whole process up either. I mean maybe he did, maybe he didn't. We won't know because he won't tell us and doesn't log into GH for weeks at a time. This whole "only update when update" thing is not helpful in any way. An explanation why things aren't moving forward in an expected time frame is also in need of an update. And "no update" at least lets us know that the runner is still present and invested into the project.

To clear the air a bit, producing the wrong file is annoying but there is nothing anyone can do to change that. Weaston has given us an acceptable solution to the problem and there is no need to potentially drive someone into financial ruin by re-producing all the bottom pieces just so we can put our feetsies on.
We also don't know what else is going on behind the scenes. Maybe he's very busy and didn't have time or the nerves pre-packing and cerakoating the boards while waiting for the PCBs, so no need to get aggressive about that.

But with months upon months of no communication and then getting a very to-the-point update that only contains the latest project developments we kind of have to assume that he's just sitting on his ass the entire time twiddling his thumbs and choosing to ignore us. Or he doesn't, we can't know.

I completely agree and understand that every participant agreed to get the keyboard "whenever", doesn't mean people can't get annoyed by how things are handled while having no actual deadlines and not knowing what to expect next.

Will this ship? Yes, absolutely.
Does Weaston have only the best intentions in mind? Yes, absolutely.
Can Weaston or us magically speed things up? No.
Am I actually enraged and reeing because of a metal rectangle? Na, I'm just a bit annoyed at the guessing game we have to play.

I fully believe that Weaston can deliver the promised product and once we all have it in hand we will love and enjoy it.

Okay, time to forget about this again for a couple weeks.
