Why is the order form still live? Are orders still going... 2 years later?

It definitely shouldn't be.  The OP has been MIA for a long time and has not been maintaining this thread.  I will edit out the order form link.

Finally rolled in!  Had to replace 4 of the ws2812s to get the LEDs working, as well as additional paste/solder on the mc  (pcb assembly is definitely a mess per everyone else) but everything works.  Thanks to sachin for the updated guide, re-flashed the hex, all the keys did show as BAD (no pre-configured keymap, but uploading the one from the repo worked just fine).

Now I have to find where I put the keycaps I was going to put on this.

Many thanks to Yuktsi for picking up the pieces on this buy.

I need to track down an unused plate from someone in here. I want to get a batch of them cut, but I need one that isn't in a board and I am too lazy to desolder my grand new r/mm find. Anyone have one they are willing to sell?

Just wondering if there are still folks that haven't got their kits yet? Haven't seen too much activity on here about that recently and I'm still here waiting patiently with no responses from Yuktsi. Hopefully this is still inching along.

Itís moving but slowly. We have <20 orders more boards to ship now. Hopefully can be done ASAP.

I will get back to your PM later. Sorry.

For anyone that is having issues of whole columns firing, I believe that I just figured out what is happening. I don't know if y'all are still checking that have problems, but it's an interesting problem and I put the project away for a while until I finished another one.

So, if you look on the back of the PCB where the through hole pads for the switches are, there is a tiny, almost imperceptible piece of non solder mask there. If you look close, it almost looks like it's part of the pad. To diagram it in text looks like this: (0 and much closer and more difficult to see. If that is bridged on any of the switches, it appears to cause the whole column to trigger. (I believe that it shorts the entire column to ground which is what triggers the whole row.)

I had asked about it and messaged  yuktsi about it where it was mentioned that it was solder overflow and to remove the switches and use desoldering braid to take up the solder and to clean with alcohol. I unfortunately got hung up on the removing switches part as I had never soldered switches to this board. (In addition to the mcu not being completely soldered, there were a few bad RGB LEDs that needed replacement and this tiny gap was bridged by solder at some point during the LED replacement process.)

So if you have issues like 4rfv all triggering at once, This is very likely your answer. Desolder, clean with braid (it took a long time for me to soak up the right solder even with flux, but I'm also bad with/hate solder wick) clean with alcohol and keep testing.

Any word on whether all the original GB orders have shipped?  Still eagerly waiting on a Silver Premium Kit.
