Hey guys,

Just wanted to report in and let you all know we had to get one revised color sample but 3 out of 4 colors were approved! Once the final sample is approved we will be receiving a set to show and then we can proceed to GB. At the moment we're expecting the ETA of GB start to be mid-2021.

I'm pretty sure there are two mistakes in the Norde kit. Shouldn't the <> key have a | character as an alternative legend? And shouldn't the |; key be ,; instead?

EDIT: Super excited for this though! Wouldn't be nitpicking otherwise, haha!!

For Scandinavian keyboards there's no sub-legend on the <> key, but I think you might be right about the German layout? I also agree that the comma looks a little weird, should probably be the same icon as in the semi-colon.

I also noticed there is no \`´-key for the Norwegian (and possibly other Scandinavian??) layout.

Ah I was actually looking to do a Swedish layout. Which I believe is this (I don't actually speak Swedish, I just love learning about the different language layouts for keyboards).

Found some more issues in NorDeUk-kit/ Base (included also these mentioned in comments above):

1. R3 "~ #"-key in Base, is an UK-key, move it to NorDeUk, and add instead an R3 "|\"-key to Base for US-ISO
2. R4 "|\"-key in Base could be moved to NorDeUk and replaced with R4 "> <"-key from NorDeUk (I think its a common request to enable some variant of US-ISO layout and dont have duplicate "| \" keys in base).
3. R1 "` ´ |"-key for DK-layout is missing in NorDeUk
4. R1 "` \ ´"-key for NO-layout is missing in NorDeUk (as already mentioned above)
5. R4 "> < \"-key for DK-layout is missing in NorDeUk
6. R4 "> < |"-key for DE/FI/SE-layout is missing in NorDeUk (as already mentioned above)
7. R4 "; ,"-key in NorDeUk looks strange in the render or has wrong character?  (as already mentioned above)

In theory there should be a 5 key without the € for Norwegian - but this is not a flaw exclusive to this set. € on 5 works in windows, but is as far as I know not a part of the standard for the no layout. The "misstake" is thus fairly forgiveable. Only AltGr+E produces € on Linux.

E: oversight on my part there is a 5 % key in the basekit!

The micro kit seems to be missing a few essential keys.

For staggered 40s the three most important keys are: R2 1.75 backspace, R3 1.25 tab and R3 1.5 enter.
These are the three most important ones since they enable support for many boards and the keys cannot be replaced with another key with the right size and profile.
For the 1.75 enter one could use a control/caps lock instead and that's why it's not considered as essential.

I would like to ask you to consider changing the micro kit to have better support. For examples of really good 40s kits both GMK Wise Wolf and GMK Seafarer have great kits. For more hands on help with 40s there's a dedicated channel in  the keycap designers' discord where several knowledgeable people can answer questions.

There is "5 %" without € in the base kit :)

Fantastic. I really like the colors, although not crazy about the marzipan personally.
Only gripe about this set is that there's no f13 in base, I feel like it should be included because its already a big basekit.
The character deskmat is one of the best deskmats ive seen.

Looking foward to groupbuy!  :thumb:

So incredibly interested in this, as all through my childhood in the early 90's, I used to read this huge Moomin stories & comic strip collection book that my Norwegian grandmother gave to me and my brother as kids. Over and over I would read the almost drowsily benign life of Moomin, and always loved how wholesome but gullible him and the whole village were. I loved the art style and how different it was from literally anything else I'd ever seen before. How crazy the art and color fill was done, and the overall style felt remeniscient of the old, high contrast Japanese cartoon symbolic art. I still even remember the speech bubbles were unique looking, where they never completely closed. They just swirled out in a little wavy line... I used to love that.

...except My. She's a little scumbag who can rot at the bottom of a well.

So yeah, I cannot explain the shudders of nostalgia I felt as soon as I saw a sig banner for this IC, and literally couldn't click fast enough. Insta subbed to thread.

Eagerly awaiting the GB, just checking in to see what the odds are that we could get some 12.75u support for the 40s kit, an extra R2 1.75 and R3 1.5 (force accents on the nonbelievers) would be awesome!

It looked like the GB is on, at least when I checked at Mykeyboard.eu

Wouldn’t it be prudent of OP to make a GB thread, or is my search-fu totally lacking?

Yeah, I thought it was strange that there was no GB date added to the thread. Since it’s a licensed set too, I would think they’d do more promo/announcements for it. Luckily someone commented the date, but if I hadn’t of joined their discord I prob would of still been waiting :'(

A little unfortunate for such a great set. At this point mostly it will be people who have been following this set closely who will join the groupbuy. I also don't recall getting an announcement email from cannonkeys about the gb.

CannonKeys has sent a couple announcement emails about this GB. OP was forced off GeekHack after receiving a ton of harassment over his Peaches N Cream colors. OP mainly uses Reddit and discord to post any announcements or updates on his sets. I do not believe he will be returning to Geekhack in the future.
