You are correct, we have never had a KOTM winner be a topre board. We have had many make their way through to the voting stage, but never any winners.

hopefully with the upcoming custom realforce cases coming this year, that will change

Took a bit of thinking, but voted now.

All fantastic keyboards :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Okay boys and girls, last few days before the vote closes. There are currently just two votes separating the top two, so if you haven't voted already, make sure you get in this weekend as the poll closes just before 4am Geekhack time on Monday which is approximately 64.5 hours from now

Congrats adamski07!

Also 93 members voted, which is not too shabby (as long as you don't compare it to the 6143 active members in the last month, or the 4168 active members in the last week, or even the 1802 active members today *sigh*).

Congrats adamski! It was close all week, and I really thought we were going to have a tie (thank god we didn't) but a well deserved win indeed!

Also 93 members voted, which is not too shabby (as long as you don't compare it to the 6143 active members in the last month, or the 4168 active members in the last week, or even the 1802 active members today *sigh*).

I'll be honest, I'm happy at 93 participants. We've never had that many for any of the KOTM votes, so 93 for me is a great number. I hope it's a sign of things to come.

Now the winner has been decided, I will get the stickers printed from Infiniti, sent to me and then I will ship them out to the winners. PMs and a post in the announcement thread will be up soon.

The first post was finally edited on the 4th of February and at the bottom it stated that it was open for ten days. So I don't think the OP could be much clearer.
