I am fairly new to the custom mechanical keyboard community and want to register to geekhack to look for groupbuys that aren't already over. But the one problem is that I have to answer 3 security questions, and don't know the answer of 2 em. Can someone help me with them?

The first one I don't know:
A popular keyswitch type, which has been increasingly cloned in recent years:
I thought it was cherry mx but it said it was wrong

The second one:
A popular keyboard format (abbrev, 3 letters) which omits the numberpad normally present on a fullsize keyboard:
I literally have no clue what the answer is

I am probably just stupid but eh.

When I think of voodoo, it's not a witch on a broom.

The name and timing of this IC being near mardi gras made me think it was going to be New Orleans themed

[IC] GMK Voodoo

First, really appreciate that the 40s/ortho kit has an R3 1u for something other than tab and ESC. Raise key is typically the same color as lower though unless youíre going for a gradient.

Second, agree about the name given this is witch themed. Maybe GMK Cauldron? GMK EON (eye of newt)?

Tbh, the colors arenít for me, but I think the IC has some real promise. GL!

Really like the colors but agree the name and the witch imagery make no sense together.  Still an interesting set though.

Your color matching is interesting. The pictures of the colors that you matched to are completely different than the renders. There is a possibility that this is due to my monitor but it shouldn't show up different on the same screen... I suggest you change this to prevent confusion. You also have a random 1.5u r4 super key in your base kit and you do not have mod tilde or pipe. Not sure why you have a 1u backspace either. You have a green spacebar in the spacebars kit when it should be the dark blueish color. Also, you have two 1u spacebars but no 3-1-3 spacebar support.

I like the yellow you use in your banner.  Seems to accent the caps better than green.  But when I think of a witch on a broom, green does make sense.  Not sure about the renders.  That doesn't look like GMK DY does in real life, it looks like a dark lavendar to me.  And the RAL Dark color looks way lighter in the renders too.  Maybe think about yellow on dark mods and option for yellow or green accents?  Dunno.  Just feels low contrast to me at the moment.

what.


I am probably just stupid but eh.  Hey, at least you recognize it. It's amazing how many people think they are smart.
 The 1st question: You have the correct answer, but you're being too specific, use only one of the words.
The second question: Do you not know about google? Just search for " popular keyboard layouts" and pick the one that is only 3 letters.

I'm so confused

Anyways, the original geekhack devs should be ashamed of themselves for implementing such poor UI/UX, those 'security questions' are a joke to modern web development. They aren't preventing automation in any way, but are creating an unnecessary inconvenience to regular users.

the answers are 'usb',  'mx',  and 'tkl'.

I'm more-so confused as to why other threads comments are showing up here and How he made this post without knowing the answers or registering an account...
