Title: Keyboard Builders' Digest
Post by: dovenyi on Mon, 22 February 2021, 08:00:34
Hey, fellow builders. The Keyboard Builders' Digest (https://kbd.news) is a weekly magazine I'm editing. It's a hand-picked selection of the best posts from some keyboard related subs on Reddit.

In short, the weekly snapshot of the r/mk without cheap memes, karma-**** posts, showing off and consumerism.

I have followed many of your issues and appreciate what you are doing. It can be tedious filtering through a whole lot of average builds and you have done an excellent job picking the more interesting projects and highlighting them.

Thanks for your feedback. It indeed requires a certain level of mental fitness to scan through almost 3000 posts a week on r/mk only...  :cool:

Just found out about this digest - pretty cool! Do you guys also look at /r/CustomKeyboards? I normally post over there, and I know many do since it's a bit easier to browse over /r/mk.

Post by: dovenyi on Mon, 18 October 2021, 08:26:38
Do you guys also look at /r/CustomKeyboards?

No, the focus is on DIY and real customs, and my understanding is that r/CustomKeyboards is mostly for glamour shots of standard(ish) boards.

real customs

Maybe: "bespoke customs" would resonate better. "Real customs" sounds like bit of a jab from up high (though I'm sure it wasn't intended that way)

Post by: dovenyi on Tue, 19 October 2021, 06:14:48
Yeah, don't get me wrong. As a non-native speaker I can't feel this linguistic finesse. Up until only a few years ago I hadn't seen the term "custom" used for basically stock prebuilts with switches or caps replaced. So, for me at least, "customs" remain these weird designs which many people would have a hard time to identify as keyboards. :D (On the other hand, I always thought "bespoke" and "custom" are synonyms.)
