will this be an unlimited GB or a FCFS sale? Would love to get this board without having anxiety to compete with others. Also, thank you for doing a 75% board, great work!
It will be FCFS, but we will decide on a fair number depending on the amount of interest there is. Thanks!

Yes, most likely through VIA

Quick update... please check the original post, I have put a new google form the PCB.
All responses are greatly appreciated and speed up the process of decision making.

Thanks!

Somehow the rounded edges and the proportions remind me of the Cherry G80-11800 and 11900.

Do you have a render of the internals? What does the plate look like, and where are the mounting points?

sorry, potentially nooby question here - if the pcb doesn't have per key rgb, does that mean that the square won't illuminate a coloured light?

just wondering before I fill in that new pcb form :)

It will still light up, but you wont be able to control it through VIA (a software with a user interface). However I may be able to work something out if there is enough interest

I think it will be fairly average. Not expensive, but not cheap either. I will have a finalised price soon, so keep an eye out for that

Layout is my preferred layout for 75% but not too big on the smoothed/rounded edges. Probably a pass for me.

The 3-key right column, separated funtion keys and arrow cluster is the dream layout for me. But the deal breaker is the rounded edges/corners. GLWIC anyway.

PCB is being designed. Case has been sent out for a quote and sample (if its ready).
I don't want to make any promises, but I would like to say ~2 months (but take this with a grain of salt)

PLEASE... make the cute square be a clicky button! Would be neat if it were a button! :)

Hopefully it fully supports VIA, makes life a lot easier  :thumb:

It will be FCFS, but we will decide on a fair number depending on the amount of interest there is. Thanks!

Hope you give more slots on the darker colors or especially black case color. I'm so slow at FCFS stuffs lol.
Really excited on this 75%, wanting to upgrade from my kbd75v2. Can't wait  ;D

Bump

Just a quick update... Ive been studying for exams at the moment, so have not had time to put my 100% into this, however I have had quite a lot of people requesting the discord server back.
So i decided to make another discord server for people who are interested in being notified about all future updates.

See you there!  :)

Why is the only option of picking the 4 colors in this? Out of these 4 colors my favorite is; *(Your Number One Choice)

I don't like any of the 4 colors you're forcing us to pick. And I can't submit without picking?????

Its there to see what the last colour option would be... although you may not like any of them, i just want to see what your favourite out of the 4 is so i can see what would be more popular  :)

Like I said I don't like any of them. It'll just skew your results. Can't I also double pick the same color?
