Since weaston was pretty fast at answering to my prior message I will from now on message weekly and try to address the most pressing issue at hand (for this week it seems like pictures and how to reach him for address changes). Trying not to do too many questions at once.

Feel free to post questions that you want me to put forward as well as keeping me accountable, just reply in the thread when my msg should be due or PM. Hopefully the GSKT00 will be in reach soon :)
Are you only invested in this because you have joined this gb? What about the other group buys in shambles? I think bunnylake and Jaxx need a few PM's

Probably wrong place to take this up, but why are not moderators doing the same for other GBs where people are waiting months for updates?

I've been staying out of this thread since I'm not in this GB/it's none of my business/the runners and I have historically not gotten along but it's dead beef at this point/I'm not a GH mod/most of you think of me a ****poster and not a person who has any substantial knowledge/I know better, but I do have some insight here.

There are a some GBs, like Jane CE, where people don't especially care if they get updates or not because it's clear the runner is working, if slowly, and the product they end up with will be good/worth a lot more than they paid/both. There are others where updates are reliably being given on another platform, like discord or via email, so people don't feel inclined to ask for info in the GH thread (common in smaller keyboard GBs). Some longtime GBs get substantial updates when someone asks (280), and that's enough for the people in them.

On the other hand, you have stuff like Rukia, where the runner is just ghosting everyone, and there's not really anything to be done about it.

Plus, it's also an economy issue. There are a lot of GBs, and it's a lot of work to keep up with every single one of them. It's a big part of why I've been so burned out on keyboards for the last year or two.

This is kind of an oversimplification of it, there are a lot of other possible reasons. It's mostly that there's just not one perfect solution.

As always, CAVEAT EMPTOR.

I don't know what to say about those, but it seems like this one has been just limping along enough to give buyers a sliver of hope each time we're about to mutiny. Maybe Weaston would have been better off just ghosting all of us

Yes I solely do moderation work for monetary benefit :rolleyes:

I'd love to help with the other GB's, the reason I took on this was because I already had an established connection with weaston, so it was more out of goodwill without too much work. Regarding the other threads/GB's I'd love to help out to the best of my ability. I'm not as well informed due to the sheer amount of GB's being ran on this site, so please send a PM regarding the problematic ones and I'll take a look once I have the time. Regarding Bunnylake, we're not on the greatest terms personally and I can't really influence much. He is however banned from running future GB's, for what its worth.
Very busy with studies atm.

Please ask about cerakote, since we dont have proper sample for what the colors look like it would help a lot to get a picture for each color. I dont think its a tall order because very few got the cerakote option.

Not saying that your question isn't valid, but didn't everyone already select cerakote colors? And aren't they already picked from the standard colors? I mean you can get samples, but they're just little cards and don't 100% match what the boards will look like anyway.

Yes everyone already selected cerakote colors, but it helps to see what it looks like on the board. Its like buying a keyboard in a color that has no render and only pantone color number. Samples seem to be inaccurate because of the materials, that is why I want to see what it looks like in real life. Honestly though, im not expecting **** with the way its going.

I mean it's just a weird ask. You can Google cerakote colors and see what they look like, or go to a businesses site or cerakote's site and see examples. If he's actually packing it means unpacking boards if they've already been cerakoted. And I mean regardless of what it looks like, if it's been coated it's the color your getting regardless of input at this point.

All that aside I know people are curious if all the finishing is at least done. That'd be a good thing to ask.

Think of it like this, you are buying a GMK set with no renders and only pantone color codes. Would you be fine with not having renders and pictures of samples? Would you be fine if the GMK set runner tells you to just look at another set that uses the same color? Yes, it doesn't change anything and I have no control over its outcome but it helps visualize the product. If he has already packed it then it wouldn't make sense to unpack just for pictures obviously, and I don't want to delay this any further if that's the case. But a bare minimum would be to share the status of cerakoted orders to us.

He is not going to be able to change anything about the cerakote even if you don't like it. Seems like a pointless request...

Not only that but the entire point is moot because you do have pictures of samples. You can go ahead and ask the google machine what your chosen color looks like or just order a sample swatch yourself, there's been plenty of time  :p

Did you even read what I said? Because I don't remember saying anywhere that I wanted to see what my cerakote color looks like so I can make any changes to my order or whether I'll even like the color. I even stressed multiple times that I know I can't make any changes and just wanted to see the color on the board for visualization purposes only. Maybe if you read my analogy you might understand my reasoning. As for the samples, did you know that the swatches are not very accurate? Ah yes Google.. how I haven't thought about that.. it's almost as if guns aren't made with the same material as keyboards, different base color can affect the final outcome (for us our base color is silver), some samples on the website use multiple layers of different colors and not just the color I picked. Who would've thought! If it wasn't obvious already, I know what the color looks like on objects that aren't keyboards, specifically the keyboard I purchased. If this point is so moot, GMK set runners have no reason to share photos of the sample if the same color has already been used elsewhere. Who needs cafe's samples when it shares the same alphas main color as 9009 am I right?

If we didn't have more pressing issues, I see no problem with it. However, there are multiple things that should be answered first.
Additionally, keyset designers are designing one thing that all of their customers will receive. Weaston did not make this keyboard for your specific cerekote color. He even said that things are likely to differ, so needing a picture of the cerakote when nothing will change before you get the board seems pointless.

Wow ignoring the minority color? That's pretty Keyboardcist bro.

Jokes aside, I agree with you that this is least of our problems and should be in the very bottom of our priority list. I still disagree with it being pointless, IMO all colors should have pictures taken regardless of the number of units sold, cerakote or not, but as you said its the least of our worries. No point arguing about this though, so let us just agree to disagree and move on. Also, I apologize if my tone sounded rude earlier. Cheers!

Respectfully I understand this is well-meant, but if Weaston has time to answer to you in private, then he has time to come out here and post the same information via an update. Not to mention the conflict of interest. In my opinion, doing this is enabling his behavior more than anything else.

I mean it's just a weird ask. You can Google cerakote colors and see what they look like, or go to a businesses site or cerakote's site and see examples. If he's actually packing it means unpacking boards if they've already been cerakoted. And I mean regardless of what it looks like, if it's been coated it's the color your getting regardless of input at this point.

All that aside I know people are curious if all the finishing is at least done. That'd be a good thing to ask.

Think of it like this, you are buying a GMK set with no renders and only pantone color codes. Would you be fine with not having renders and pictures of samples? Would you be fine if the GMK set runner tells you to just look at another set that uses the same color? Yes, it doesn't change anything and I have no control over its outcome but it helps visualize the product. If he has already packed it then it wouldn't make sense to unpack just for pictures obviously, and I don't want to delay this any further if that's the case. But a bare minimum would be to share the status of cerakoted orders to us.

He is not going to be able to change anything about the cerakote even if you don't like it. Seems like a pointless request...

Did you even read what I said? Because I don't remember saying anywhere that I wanted to see what my cerakote color looks like so I can make any changes to my order or whether I'll even like the color. I even stressed multiple times that I know I can't make any changes and just wanted to see the color on the board for visualization purposes only. Maybe if you read my analogy you might understand my reasoning. As for the samples, did you know that the swatches are not very accurate? Ah yes Google.. how I haven't thought about that.. it's almost as if guns aren't made with the same material as keyboards, different base color can affect the final outcome (for us our base color is silver), some samples on the website use multiple layers of different colors and not just the color I picked. Who would've thought! If it wasn't obvious already, I know what the color looks like on objects that aren't keyboards, specifically the keyboard I purchased. If this point is so moot, GMK set runners have no reason to share photos of the sample if the same color has already been used elsewhere. Who needs cafe's samples when it shares the same alphas main color as 9009 am I right?
I mean your just asking for things no keyboard GB provides. Sometimes they'll leak some of the colors prior to delivery but a lot of times they just ship. Again it's too late to change it anyway. And you can definitely find other things, even aluminum things, cerakoted your color online. This is ignoring the point that of course lighting can effect color as well, so unless your going to send Weaston a lighting setup to get color accurate photos, just seems like a whole lotta huff for nothing. Sorry if what I say comes off as rude, it is just a weird ask.

Right now everyone's priority concern is Weaston giving more details of where he is in the process and getting boards shipped to those who joined. Giving you a pic of your specific board with a color you can't change doesn't address anything more concerning with this buy. You can always post how much you hate how the color was done after the rest of us get our boards .

Since weaston was pretty fast at answering to my prior message I will from now on message weekly and try to address the most pressing issue at hand (for this week it seems like pictures and how to reach him for address changes). Trying not to do too many questions at once.

Feel free to post questions that you want me to put forward as well as keeping me accountable, just reply in the thread when my msg should be due or PM. Hopefully the GSKT00 will be in reach soon :)

Respectfully I understand this is well-meant, but if Weaston has time to answer to you in private, then he has time to come out here and post the same information via an update. Not to mention the conflict of interest. In my opinion, doing this is enabling his behavior more than anything else.
Yeah. It's a tough call. The alternative is not doing this and just having him ghost the thread. If this is how we get our boards I'm on board.

Lesson to learn here is dont charge for shipping immediately at the time your gb closes. Especially in the middle if a pandemic that is affecting shipping rates

For what it's worth there was no declared state of pandemic in January of 2020.

So that's probably wrong.

If shipping costs are the issue, he can just issue another invoice for incremental shipping costs. Other GBs have gone that route.

$25 easily covers the price of USPS Priority or UPS Ground and $50 covers the cost of UPS Worldwide Expedited/Saver. Not sure how participants paying more for shipping would resolve any issues.

Watching this thread go through the stages of grief. Denial, anger and now I think were officially entering the bargaining stage.

Please Weston, what can we do to get an update? What will it take for you to ship?
