I wish I could run part of my business like a meme, like GMK has since before the pandemic.

Also, pictures never came. Calling that out isn't toxicity and it's laughable that people like you bend over backwards to justify this behavior. Designer could have just said nothing, but mentioned the photos and then never posted them. If you think that's fine, well, it's your money. I'd rather not support people who make empty commitments. This time it's pictures, next time it can be poor QC/bad color matching/getting something different than what you paid for.

Also note that on Reddit, GMK tried to shift blame on the designer too, which was subsequently disproven by the vendors in this thread. That's why communication is good for everyone involved, accountability. And how the **** is asking for transparency in any way considered privilege? Have a little self respect and get your money's worth...

So far, I've only seen vendors holding true to their commitments and actually treating backers/clients as such. The rest just pull everything out of their ass and clearly don't give a ****.

I don't think it's lack of self awareness and I have no intention of getting into a discussion over this, it's honestly not worth anyone's time. I just want to underline how frustrating it is to see the way the hobby is handled, it could be so much more if people like this were held to a higher standard.

Over the past few months I've seen NK offer in-stock sets, discounts, promotions, excellent marketing/social media and other A+ business practices. Credit where credit is due, you guys are killing it. GMK and designers though? Eating glue in a corner.

Sorry you feel like that. You are still able to get a refund of course. Here’s a phone pic for you, this is on my silver Noxary 280s with GMK beige. We’re really happy with the colours and I’m excited to get it into everyone’s hands. Prototypist and Novelkeys have both been great to work with, btw. And GMK’s top tier colour matching meant they basically nailed 4/5 colours first time. And nailed the lot on the second sample.

This looks AMAZING thanks so much futurecrime.

Also just maybe ignore this other guy, he's struggling to see outside his straightjacket of self-imposed rage over. Seen a lot of ppl that entered hobby struggle with this.

To anyone struggling with GMK GB waits and updates: Just know it's normal we all feel your pain and plz stop taking your frustration out on futurecrime/designers for these issues. If they're being sus the rest of the community will call them out so you'll know.

Maybe first, but not the last.
Let's not forget Lynx L50. Very discrete, very silent, very scammy.

Is this the biggest scam in keyboard history?

in terms of monetary value probably no, but in terms of sheer betrayal of trust it's definitely up there

What would be the biggest monetary one? Polartype?

Potentially sprit i think

SPRiT was a fart in a hurricane compared to this

yeah sprit was low 5 digits, this is likely mid 6 (my math has it around 300k). polartype could be up there but i honestly don't know enough about it to say for sure.

there have been a couple other mid 6 exit scams. team redline was like 100-200, for example. they're nothing new in keyboards.

E8v1 was a pretty major one that ended up working out. i think when i made that post i was thinking of that guy who faked having cancer and took all the GB money to buy a bunch of gucci goods or something. was that dolphin v3? i think those boards also eventually went out, though.

i think what makes this so unusual (and therefore keeps us all posting in the thread) is the fact that it doesn't look like people will be getting their boards. even with those other GBs, including more recent ones like moon v2 and gskt, at least there's a pretty clear potential people might actually get their boards. even stuff like 280 and jane v2 CE, it's clear that the runner just made mistakes, not that they were ever trying to exit scam. even mech27v2 ended up with the affected people getting refunds not too long ago.

that's why i'm of the belief that jaxx wasn't going into this trying to scam people -- i think he just royally ****ed up somewhere in the process and is ghosting everyone to avoid responsibility. that doesn't make it any more or less OK, and i'm just speculating here. i don't think we'll ever really know what happened here unless jaxx comes out of hiding and says something. at this point i find that to be a remote to nonexistent possibility.

I can't say for Jaxx as what he intended or not, but I'm of the same opinion that what makes this different is this was possibly the first case of the runner simply proofing out of existence. Jane V2 and the Notary 280 were harsh, but the runner was there somehow and didn't ghost people at this level
