Happy 6th GMK Hyperfuse!

I'm on my 3rd address change. I wonder if I should actually tell Bunny. :p

The problem is there was not accountability.  When Team Readline ripped off a bunch of people as I understand it they were booted off the forum.  When Bunnylake ripped people off he kept his forum store, his special forum badges, was allowed to continue running groupbuys and promote his store / instagram, and generally nothing happened to him.  Maybe he'll update us that he's "looked over the rest of the sets and shipped everything out" so we wait another 3 months before asking again  :p  Don't reach out to him directly and ask though because even when you forward him the email that his site sent you in 2014 with all the details of your order he either doesn't respond or pretends you never ordered anything.

They can't even resell them on r/mm because it would raise too many suspicions lol.

Yeah I pretty much gave up hope after year 1 had passed. But I'm still missing my entire HF kit and I've got a missing cap for Hack'd and a missing cap for True Retro... so annoying.

Reading pg. 1-2 on this thread and looking at the dates, then jumping to the last 2-3 pages is kinda like reading a horror story.

All those poor souls, unaware of what would happen to their hard earned money. Pretty sad to see this. On the upside, I think Hyperfuse with Originative is shipping out soon. Jumped on that one.

I have some F8s available to anyone who needs one to complete their set. Please be honest and only reach out to me if you are needing one of these to complete your set.
These were recently ordered so the teal is ever so slightly different than the keys made years ago for the base sets, but the match is pretty close.
Please ignore dust, that is from the new recycled packaging used by GMK, these caps were sent over bundled with another novelty and I had to separate them. The dust blows right off.



You can (or maybe can't) see the slight color difference in the pictures below.
In the first picture, the new caps are on the left, in the second picture the new cap is on the F8 position, it is a different cap but uses same colors and was made at same time.

More




I will be sending these out to those who need them to complete their set for the cost of postage.
Please private message me proof of purchase / ownership of the keyset and I will send you a link to the F8 listing, as well as a discount code to bring the cost down to just shipping.
If your base set was held waiting for an F8, I would advise you to try to have that shipped, and I can send you an F8 key.

Well, at least now you can have part of it. I bet in a few weeks these F8 keys will have a high markup on r/mm.

The problem is there was not accountability.  When Team Readline ripped off a bunch of people as I understand it they were booted off the forum.  When Bunnylake ripped people off he kept his forum store, his special forum badges, was allowed to continue running groupbuys and promote his store / instagram, and generally nothing happened to him.  Maybe he'll update us that he's "looked over the rest of the sets and shipped everything out" so we wait another 3 months before asking again  :p  Don't reach out to him directly and ask though because even when you forward him the email that his site sent you in 2014 with all the details of your order he either doesn't respond or pretends you never ordered anything.

For what it's worth, bunnylake is most definitely not allowed to sell anything on this site anymore (for quite some time). There is still a Ctrl Alt forum, which is effectively just an archive of their past work.

This process was not as visible and public as what happened to Team Redline, but it did happen. Reading some similar observations to what you've said recently, I think this was an oversight and that making these decisions public would have been the right thing to do. I think we're headed that direction in the very near future, in conjunction with the recently updated GB rules.

What do you mean by this statement? "try to have that shipped". I opted to wait for F8's but I was under the impression Bunny re-sold those when he received the original missing F8's and never shipped them to the original buyers. Do you somehow have the full sets on hand?

I'm sure the people who didn't receive their set will not think this but..

I'm not of the belief Bunny scammed anyone...this is different than the MANY scams that happened here where people took money and ran.

This was a story of trying to do things to keep the costs down..relying on the community to do what they said they would (put the sets together) and the whole thing blowing up when time after time people didn't come through.

And the whole thing is prevented by having GMK send you the sets sorted rather than try to do it yourself (or try to think others will do it as promised).  I think that is lesson number 1 and the one the community as a whole has benefitted from...

It is really unfortunate that this happened....but it just goes to show that it takes a certain amount of organizational skill to do these...but do I think Bunny intentionally scammed anyone?  No...after all of the people failing to do their part, this sounds like it just ended up being this big fiasco that took a lot of time to fix and frankly, I'm sure he lost money on this....Not that it makes anyone else feel better....

It should go as a warning to everyone though....Keyboard enthusiasts, as a whole, are not reliable...people don't stay in it for long....and that most GBs have an amount of risk that you have to be willing to accept...

I'm sure the people who didn't receive their set will not think this but..

I'm not of the belief Bunny scammed anyone...this is different than the MANY scams that happened here where people took money and ran.

This was a story of trying to do things to keep the costs down..relying on the community to do what they said they would (put the sets together) and the whole thing blowing up when time after time people didn't come through.

And the whole thing is prevented by having GMK send you the sets sorted rather than try to do it yourself (or try to think others will do it as promised).  I think that is lesson number 1 and the one the community as a whole has benefitted from...

It is really unfortunate that this happened....but it just goes to show that it takes a certain amount of organizational skill to do these...but do I think Bunny intentionally scammed anyone?  No...after all of the people failing to do their part, this sounds like it just ended up being this big fiasco that took a lot of time to fix and frankly, I'm sure he lost money on this....Not that it makes anyone else feel better....

It should go as a warning to everyone though....Keyboard enthusiasts, as a whole, are not reliable...people don't stay in it for long....and that most GBs have an amount of risk that you have to be willing to accept...

sir this is a wendy's

Is it?  Sorry you think that.

I don't think you should expect they'll go sour..obviously if you think it would, you'd be pretty stupid to join one.

But is there a risk that is greater than say, drop?  Yes..I'd say so...and that should be obvious...and yet is always seems to not be..

People I've given money to from this webform who never respond to me and have not shipped me anything: ctrlalt.io 1 2, Team Readline Reputable alternatives to GH group buys: http://pimpmykeyboard.com, https://www.massdrop.com,

I'm still owed a set (I believe, it was retro and also an addon set -- it was so long ago now) and at the time there were people who would post BS like "Guys, Bunny is good to go!  No need to worry when Bunny is running a GB!" these same people would rip on MassDrop.  Thought that was silly.

At the time I felt MD running group buys instead of just acting like a normal retailer was BS and didn't like how they branded themselves as something they weren't.. still, I guess we all now know why Bunny kept setting up new group buys even while struggling with xyz reasons he can't ship out earlier sets.

Congrats, you did it, you've written the dumbest and most tone deaf thing on Geekhack in 2022 so far.

Dead wrong.

He scammed people on Hyperfuse, he scammed people on Toxic, and he scammed individuals. He still personally owes epzy around $7.5k+ worth of keyboards that he was supposed to build for him; it's been 6 years.

There's been more than a few members on Geekhack who've done the same thing as Bunny. I'm not sure if anyone managed it as well as him though. The trick is simple: arrive in the community, be very generous and giving initially, and pepper people with compliments, money, and desirable items for good prices. Then, after you think you've cemented yourself properly, do a total 180 while being endlessly apologetic and full of excuses. What do you get in return? Simps for eternity, free defense, and the benefit of the doubt.

And in case you're thinking: Oh! Oh! Maybe he's just had a horrible 6 years, surely he'll get around to it eventually?

Nah, he's got enough time to help manage his good mate Bro Caps' orders (something he's very expert at). Pretty funny that Bro Caps even allows his involvement in anything, given the fact he's scammed people in this community for 10s of thousands of dollars, easily.
