You need to say the name of the cap, the hand-e-cap.

Just waiting on a response from nubbinator.

He has the option to use his dibs or pass it on with another piece of trivia.

Thinking of a good way to pass it on since I have nothing Topre.

Alright, here's my thing for passing my dibs on.  Nominate someone else to get the cap and state why they deserve it with the knowledge that you will be buying the cap for them.  I'll let Binge pick who that is by 9PM PST tomorrow (or later if he wants a later time).

Ok, I nominate naasfu. He and I "met" in one gaming forum called QuarterToThree run by Tom Chick and there was a mechanical keyboard thread discussing about keyboards. He was asking about different switches and we all gave feedback on what we think. And the moment he got a keyboard, he was hooked and in a short time frame, his knowledge of keyboards and keycaps was far better than even myself. I think many of you probably have seen his love for keycaps with all those beautiful photos of his acquisition that he has posted. In fact, now he's my go-to person for questions of key caps.

We were both still  active in the thread, sharing our love to other gamers and members. But I think people there think we are nuts. LOL.

You've heard it here folks!  You all have until 9PM PST tomorrow to nominate someone you want to get this cap by explaining why they deserve this cap.

The individual who makes the best case will pay for the cap based on location of the person nominated.

In the spirit of feels all of the proceeds less shipping will be donated to GH.

Wait, what?  Haha, thank you Belfong.  I nominate Belfong, since he was the one who got me into this mess of mech keyboards and keycap insanity. :)  He was very helpful with lots of information about switches, different types of keyboards, keysets, BroBots, and many other things when I started getting into things. :)  Plus, he is an all around nice and sincere guy.  I will gladly pay for the Fn cap for him.

ps. was it 9pm pst tomorrow?  Hope I didn't miss the deadline.

I'd like to nominate hipstercaps. I'm pretty sure he has a topre board, and he is very nice and easy to talk to via PM. He charges next to nothing for his caps despite my telling him his work has value and he still practically gives his stuff away every sale. I know he is a bingecap fan, and since I missed out on the last sale (F U GATOR) I'd be happy to help him get this cap with my unspent budget. I also like when geekhack gets money.

Can I submit two entries for two different people? Because the fact that this is Topre Fn reminds me of a Topre lover in this community and I'm sure he would appreciate a Binge adorning his Topre board. And in the spirit of giving back to GH, there is no other in this community who has done so much for us other than Bunny Lake. Also, despite the amount of work and pressure he goes through in his GB, he is still very flexible to cater to everyone's unique request. I know it would drive me nuts to keep track of all the unique requests and yet he was pretty patient and supportive. If anyone deserve a binge, and a rare Fn key for Topre, it's him and I'll gladly delight him in this surprise - that is, if he haven't read this entry - I'd bet on it because he just came back from vacation and have tons of PM to catch up!

Can I second this. Hipster is a great guy. I first talked to him when he PM'd me out of the blue offering to send me a cap to do a review on. He was supper nice about it, and seems to just generally be a great guy.  On top of that, everything danielucf said is true as well. His caps are dirt cheep! I'd love to do whatever I can to support him. If Hipster wins, me and danielucf can flip a coin to decide who pays or split the price or whatever.
EDIT: Since Hipster already has one, I'll try and come up with someone else. I would recommend Dodgy, but I don't think he has any topre boards. I'll keep thinking on it.

thank you for the kind words daniel! and i am a HUGE binge cap fan, however i already own a Nugget Fn Topre, and would enjoy seeing someone who doesnt have one yet experience its magic. Its quite an amazing cap, and the depth and colors blended into it are stunning  :)

i'd like to nominate HoffmanMyster, he has been chasing a binge Fn and doesnt even care what color it is just that its a binge cap. I think that shows dedication and appreciation towards your art Binge, dude just wants some binge topre in his life!

lol.  It's pronounced 'meister'.  HoffmanMeister, spelled HoffmanMyster (last name Hoffman).  The name was given to me in 7th grade by a close friend, the KundeNator (last name Kunde).  :D

Both of you :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
