Yeah these guys don't respond.  Definately something to consider for any of their future group buys.

They've always responded to me. This is not to detract from your experience nor am I trying to categorically state that one or the other is the normal procedure for them but figured I'd chime in.

Nice thanks for sharing your experience. I have full faith in Senter and the rest of Fox Labs.

Just wondering, how did you contact them?

I haven't needed to contact them for a while, ordered and received my 80RE with no issues but I'm pretty sure both times I had a few back and forths with Senter regarding the initial run of the Time as well as the Leaf60 it was through the email Syamil mentioned, runninghack.

Anyone tried alps build on this board? I bought it because I thought I could use Leaf 80's Alps plate on it, but I just find out that time80re doesn't have enough clearance on the screw holes, since the new plates are thinner...

I saw there is a plate file on github, but the stab seems to be cherry pcb mount? Not sure if it support costar stab instead. Otherwise I am limited to stab keys with cherry mount, which I couldn't find any for WKL layout.

How did you fit in the stab? Typical alps stab doesn’t seem to be supported.

used a keycaps set that supports cherry stabs. it says on the website where you get the plate files that the plate files given only support cherry stabs

There are practically only 1 type of keycaps that supports it AFAIK. Either the Krepublic's XDA alps or SA's DCS Alps(extremely hard to find).

I am asking about this since leaf 80 alps plate have the support, just the clearance problem with screw hole that is blocking it from the front weight for Time80Re :-X

Is there QMK firmware source available? I want to enable scroll lock LED shinethrough instead of having that as a backlight LED.

EDIT: nevermind found it, didn't realize it would be called time_re in the repo

1.5mm by accident. no issues luckily. if anything, make the screw holes and stab cutouts a bit larger. I'm told alps should use 1.2mm

I messed up pretty bad.

Senter replied to me, only to discover I messed up horrifically by not reading the GB description, and didn't separately order the badge and plate.

Then, I didn't leave an e-mail address.

However, Senter still had the patience to deal with me, and respond to my e-mails.

Thank you Senter and Fox Labs.

Is there a place to buy these alps plates  ? Pom or otherwise.

Well I have finally gotten a response after a couple of emails and 2-3 months of silence. 

Long story short, Fox Labs will not replace my dented TIME badge at the front.

I wasn't even asking for a full replace, just the front badge.

I will be avoiding all Fox Labs boards and hopefully anyone considering buying their products in the future will use my experience with them as a reference.

I second this, I am avoiding all Fox Labs future boards as well. I merely asked if I can swap the extra pcb from hotswap to solder and he wouldn't do this. It was only a week after closing of the GB.

I had an issue with them as well, which I mentioned here https://youtu.be/PDz2Y7iqQVA?t=196 I like their boards, including this one, but I will also not buying from them any more.

I received a board with cosmetic damages, and attempted to contact them for the last month and a half with no response.

With similar complaints as seen in this thread, I humbly request GH admin to take this into consideration when approving their next GB thread.
