High $300's, Low $400's from what I was told. I'll admit, the prices they're placing are a bit out there. I think they're taking advantage of their popularity. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just a little disappointing since I'm sure we all wanted them at a reasonable price.  :(

It's definitely pretty high. When was the original GB? I joined the original Jane and paid...$420 I think for that one? But that was a year and a half ago.

$530 does not include the PCB. Entire kit (case + PCB) is $560 not including shipping.

EDIT: $530 DOES include PCB. An extra PCB is $30. Sorry about the confusion!

Also, regarding pricing - the factory that he originally had these made at have raised prices. Believe it or not, this price took some fighting for. In fact, in order to get the price to this point, we had to raise qty for each board to 50 each. That's 40 more than we were planning on doing. Sorry if this is too much for people, but it is what it is. We did what we could.

BMW is there an option to put priority ?

If you win both raffles and would not like one of the spots, just let me know afterwards and I will draw again for the next person. Make sense? (It's way easier on me so I don't have to go through the lists and remove people and whatnot)

I believe so, but I will double check to make sure 100%. If you don't see an edit/reply, please PM me.

Regarding some questions asked on the form:

Quote
What amount will the package be marked as? (Customs declaration)
This has not been decided yet.

Quote
Is there an option to remove the text Geekhack Edition?
As of now, no. Lin wants to distinguish these from previous models. Sorry.

Love you too, mate.  ;)

Do these boards have any weights? I know previous designs did. Also, I saw some letters on the bottom of the EM.7 render, can we see some more pics of that (or hopefully the letters are removed  :p)?

Dolphin and EM7 do not have weights. I'm not sure about v2 as I don't have one (although I'm fairly sure they don't have a weight), but v1 definitely does not. However, this board is very heavy. My board has a brass top so it's extra heavy, but v1 is about 5-6 lbs. (Mine is about 8 pounds)

Also, all renders are available on IC thread.

EMS shipping Price (1set) with Tracking number
Asia : $40
EU, Canada : $73
Usa : $82

Form
https://goo.gl/forms/mXhFNdpyEzh9wJNN2

*Please let me know if you have any issues with the form.

Please note:
If you are caught entering the raffle twice, all of your chances will be removed and you will not be able to participate in the raffle. Please do NOT sell your raffle spot. Consequences for selling your raffle spot may result in losing it. Please contact me if a situation arises where you would no longer like your spot and we can work things out.

Lin may still be tweaking these to perfection. He reserves the right to change the render up until the point that you pay the invoice. If, for whatever reason, you decide that you do not like the final design, you may give up your spot in the GB.

NOTE: Dolphin bottom is no longer the same as the v1 bottom case.

Next Steps
The raffle will stay open until March 1st, at 12 a.m. EST. After that point, submissions will be considered invalid and will not be put in the drawing. I will draw names on Saturday, March 4th. I would love to stream this on Twitch or something if at all possible. I make no promises, but I would really like to do that. After winners have been selected, they will be presented with an order form for the drawing they won. Once the form is filled out, you will be invoiced. You will have one week to pay the invoice or you risk losing your spot. I expect 4-6 weeks turn-around, but you never know when it comes to factory delays, QC checks, etc. We will do our very best to get your kbd to you ASAP. (After all, I want mine too!!!) If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

May the RNG gods be ever in your favor.

anyone know where I can find possible layouts of EM7?

I, too, would like to see the layouts possible.
Which ones in particular were you concerned over?

I know split Bs is. I'm assuming split r Shift is too, but I can't comment on that.

There should be a split r shift. check the plate (http://kbdlab.co.kr/files/attach/images/340/325/805/003/31a7d2e3d8f2a42e8e6cb04017103270.jpg)

and one thing surprise me is that the R2 in right-hand side has one more key than the original keyboard.

It's definitely pretty high. When was the original GB? I joined the original Jane and paid...$420 I think for that one? But that was a year and a half ago.

You have the Jane I want. lolol
But yeah I've seen people selling that for $800+ easy.

I guess I'm gonna start buying all these custom keyboards and rip people off at double the price, too. lmao jk

NOTE: Dolphin bottom is no longer the same as the v1 bottom case.


So the bottom of GH edition wont look like this anymore

(http://i.imgur.com/2gWLc5B.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/XXMVAsx.jpg)

And it will be identical to V2 bottom, I guess? I kinda like V1 more though.

I buy a lot of keyboards but this one is too rich for my blood.  Which is fine, I wouldn't have won the raffle anyway.

Good luck with the GB, and thanks for making it possible to get one of these beauties.

I've seen quite a few go on sale on kbdlab because the owners couldn't get used to the layout... I can guess where they're coming from though. I was considering buying one used but I didn't because I thought the same thing might happen to me as I've never used ergo layouts b4. also the EM7 has 2 "B" keys so I doubted that I would be able to get used to it or like it.

I gotta admit though, it looks damn nice, especially the dark grey one coupled with a dolch set.

That was my fear as well, never used anything like an Ergodox or a split keyboard, and this would be a heck of an expensive way to figure out if you like it.  Although apparently the resale is pretty ridiculous.
   
As for me, I entered for the Dolphin.  Will be ecstatic if I win, and then sad that I am about to shell out that much cash. :eek:

Could just run the raffle but keep invoicing time as the same. It's not difficult to sign up for the raffle but switching the invoice date may be a bigger issue for some.

Correct, it is not the v1 bottom. It is a new design.


Drawing Total Entries

Dolphin: 114

EM7: 90

I will do the drawing on Saturday. Time TBD still, I need to figure out what my Saturday looks like. I will update the thread when I've figured out the time. After the drawing, I will post the list of winners on this thread. Shortly after (a few days), I will email each winner and send them the order form. After filling out the order form, an email with a total will be sent by either Lin or myself. Lin would like to use Moneygram for the payment. https://secure.moneygram.com/ Lin/myself will include details in the email sent to winners.

Nice, odds aren't looking as bad as I thought.

I have never used Moneygram for payment before. For anyone that's used it, is it comparable to a Paypal invoice in terms of protection and whatnot?

Correct, it is not the v1 bottom. It is a new design.


Drawing Total Entries

Dolphin: 114

EM7: 90

I will do the drawing on Saturday. Time TBD still, I need to figure out what my Saturday looks like. I will update the thread when I've figured out the time. After the drawing, I will post the list of winners on this thread. Shortly after (a few days), I will email each winner and send them the order form. After filling out the order form, an email with a total will be sent by either Lin or myself. Lin would like to use Moneygram for the payment. https://secure.moneygram.com/ Lin/myself will include details in the email sent to winners.

Yikes, any chance he could ask Kin for help, and use PayPal? Kin packed his previous group buys/collected payments from what I heard. Moneygram is quite an odd option, and I think it lacks protection as well.

There is no buyers protection from Moneygram from what I believe. Sadly I'm in the same boat, if there isn't a PayPal option I don't want to participate.

Also PayPal is a place where some folks will keep money from sold items to then transfer off for new items without bothering to transfer into their bank. Makes life easier when saving up for new items.

That Ivan guy everyone talks about has too, but then one day poof!

Not saying Lyn would do that of course. It's just good to look at things from all angles. PayPal is a better option in my opinion, since it would give everyone buyers protection, so your money is safe.

Well, the problem is that Moneygram is the same as walking up to a guy in a parking lot, handing him $500 and asking him to meet you back there in 4 months. Just not good business practice.

I'd advise everyone to read the consumer protection section (https://www.moneygram.com/wps/portal/moneygramonline/home/CustomerService/ConsumerProtection/). There is absolutely no protection, and I would highly advise _BMW_M3_ and Lin to use PayPal.

MoneyGram never recommends sending money to a stranger. Any monies received by a stranger cannot be recovered and unfortunately you will not get your money refunded back to you.

Even a 3%-5% increase in price with Paypal to avoid any potential currency conversion round issues would be better than moneygram. I hope you guys strongly reconsider this.

hello friend
I'm Lx3 (linlinlin)

sorry for use Moneygram .

I used the money gram because it was easy for me.
I already tried bmw3 and money grams. It was very convenient.

I tried to use PayPal to withdraw $ 800 to my Korean account, but my account was restricted.
PayPal has not yet heard the reason.


I have been doing a lot of co - production in Korea and have not caused any problems at all.
I hope that this will give you confidence.
I'm different from Druger.
He also cheated many people's money in Korea.

I know very well what you are worried about.

I will contact PayPal tomorrow to discuss this issue.

If it is difficult to solve, it is inevitably necessary to use a moneygram.

Lynn would have used PayPal, if it's more approachable like how it used to be. It's no fun when PayPal decided to hold 30% of the total transaction for the next 3-6 months. We are talking about 60k US$ worth of transaction. What if USD - KRW drops tremendous over the next few months under the leadership of President Trump? Well, that's something we can't predict? Plus Lynn is probably making only 15% profit out of the GB, max. I don't think it's a risk worth taking. Considering he is not doing this full time.

You guys are aware that if I were to receive $60k of cash through PayPal, I would be audited by the IRS, right? You can't just receive $60k and then shovel it to South Korea and expect the US Government to be okay with that. Imagine the taxes on that...

I really understand the solution isn't ideal... but if PayPal doesn't help us out, our hands are somewhat tied.

I don't really have any skin in this debate, but I will say from personal experience in dealing with the IRS all the time, no you would not get audited for that.  You would report $60k of income and then report the cost of the materials, shipping, and other fees as expenses, with the difference being taxable to you.  People run GBs through PayPal accounts all the time and none have reported having tax issues with the IRS, unless of course you are not reporting the income, which would really only matter if you are a US citizen.

Ring PayPal and ask to remove the limit on income. It took 5 minutes to verify my account and remove the 2.5k limit - I took over $38k. PayPal only hold money when you don't set your account up properly.
Please xondat.You don't even know how Paypal treat their Asian customer.When I was living in Vietnam,they used to hold me $5000 for 3 months ,and everytime I tried to contact them ,they said :" We are checking". So I can understand lin's problem.

COMPARED TO SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS? NO BUYER PROTECTION? OH MY ****ING GOD.

so many other groupbuys use paypal. what the hell is going on?



600 dollars and no protection? accounts with barely any history? this groupbuy is looking sketchy as ****
it's okay bro, you don't have to join.

You're one of the makers or GB providers aren't you?
You can't possibly go around and say things like moneygram is okay and you don't care... lol

Come on man.

I wouldn't join a sketchy groupbuy with moneygram even for a 20 dollar pack of springs,

I mean if you are not comfortable with dealing through moneygram, you don't have to join.

Lynn would have used PayPal, if it's more approachable like how it used to be. It's no fun when PayPal decided to hold 30% of the total transaction for the next 3-6 months. We are talking about 60k US$ worth of transaction. What if USD - KRW drops tremendous over the next few months under the leadership of President Trump? Well, that's something we can't predict? Plus Lynn is probably making only 15% profit out of the GB, max. I don't think it's a risk worth taking. Considering he is not doing this full time.

Perhaps all GB should be done through Massdrop in future, but some of you hate Massdrop. So idk.  :'(

So then GB leader can increase the price of the GB.

We're already paying over $500-600 and at this point the marginal increase of GB price isn't a problem.
I'd rather pay extra for a 100% protection than use this sketchy moneygram.

You still don't understand the problem. If PayPal holds his money ($20-30k), how is he supposed to put the order in? Use $20-30k of his own money? I'm not trying to be rude, but we don't know of another option. Do you have another option? I'm all ears. 

Believe me, I would love to use PayPal. It's simple and easy, except for the person receiving the money. As of right now, it's not possible.

I understand.  That's why I said to increase the price then by whatever much the PayPal is gonna hold onto.
Problem solved. lol

According to yuktsi, 30% (not sure it that's a solid number or not).

Lol $690 for a KB? Not even including the shipping cost? lol. $796 with shipping to US with that 30% hike. Don't think I could swallow that.

I'd say if PP isn't an option, we can rehash who's still down with the GB and see how many participants we have left.

Because the factory is in Korea, not china. Unless Lin wants to use the same manufacturer as x60.

Post by: _BMW_M3_ on Wed, 01 March 2017, 18:02:48
So, as a final post for this discussion:

1. MoneyGram is currently the only payment option. Lin will contact PayPal tomorrow to see if it would be possible to do transactions through PayPal without funds being withheld. If PayPal is not a viable option, we will continue with MoneyGram. If you win the raffle but don't like the payment option, please respond to my email and tell me you're not interested or post on the thread. (Or post on the thread ahead of time so I don't waste my time sending 100+ emails)

2. The MoneyGram payment will go directly to Lin. This was already decided before the group buy. It eliminates a lot of hassles, fees, taxes, etc. Prior to the group buy, Lin and I decided this would be the best way. If for whatever reason you deem that Lin and I are not trustworthy, please PM me or post here and I will remove you from the list.

3. My role in the group buy: Lin asked that I handle the posts, questions, countless PMs, forms, emails, etc. etc. to prevent him from handling that. His English isn't at the level of someone like Kin, so I agreed to help him out - call me his "secretary" if you'd like. ;) I'm receiving a keyboard out of this and nothing else. From the beginning, I did this for the community. I'm newer to the community and hadn't yet contributed, so what better way than to bring the Dolphin and EM7 to GH?

If you have any questions or comments, please PM me.

I want to thank everyone else for being so understanding, helpful and for supporting this GB. This is my first go at a GB and Lin's first on GH as well. We're doing everything we can to make this a smooth, easy experience. We understand not everything is ideal, but understand that we're doing our best.

Also, if you'd like to meet me in person (in case you think I'm some fantasy, made-up person), I'll be at the Dayton, OH keyboard meet-up that I'll be helping put together in May. I was also at the Cleveland, OH meet-up a few months ago.

I think the issue is with lin trying to withdraw funds or something. PayPal isn't as nice international as they are in the States.

Maybe we all should see how the raffle goes first to see which buyers are affected and if they'd prefer MoneyGram or PayPal.

then bmw m3 can collect payments via paypal and send the total as moneygram and assume liability for it all.

A single person liable for $53,000+ worth of goods?

why is that a question?

every gb leader is the same in that they're liable for a large sum of money. just look at elton, he's done it like what 6 times now with at least 40k each gb


You guys are aware that if I were to receive $60k of cash through PayPal, I would be audited by the IRS, right? You can't just receive $60k and then shovel it to South Korea and expect the US Government to be okay with that. Imagine the taxes on that...

I really understand the solution isn't ideal... but if PayPal doesn't help us out, our hands are somewhat tied.

fwiw, you wouldn't be audited, you'd just have to report $60K of income and subsequent expenses on your tax return. (still a pain in the ass)

The audit comes when you get the PayPal tax form and neglect to put that number on your tax return.

Couldn't Lin ask Kin or LZ for help? They're all friends with each other and live in Korea, don't they? I know Kin also packaged both LZ and Lin's boards in the past and will be again with LZ's latest group buy.

Lin should really chat with Kin and LZ about PayPal. Many people want to join, but without the safety net of PayPal, they may be hesitant.

Edit: tldr; Kin and LZ have experience with PayPal/Group Buy money, so maybe they can help Lin.

Im really dissapointed how this GB is going.

First, payment method wasn't announced til just recently. It is really crucial to announce the payment method especially when we are talking about $600 worth of goods. Discussion could have been made and inquiry to paypal could have been done earlier which wouldn't put us in a tight spot.

You still don't understand the problem. If PayPal holds his money ($20-30k), how is he supposed to put the order in? Use $20-30k of his own money? I'm not trying to be rude, but we don't know of another option. Do you have another option? I'm all ears. 

Believe me, I would love to use PayPal. It's simple and easy, except for the person receiving the money. As of right now, it's not possible.

Im sorry, but as I understand, selling custom keyboards is kind of a business right ($600 each). Unless lin doesnt earn or generate income from this group buy, he should spend his own money for some investment. That would seem more fair for participants who would spend this amount of money to earn his trust as a seller/custom keyboard maker.

I wouldn't join a sketchy groupbuy with moneygram even for a 20 dollar pack of springs,

COMPARED TO SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS? NO BUYER PROTECTION? OH MY ****ING GOD.
Thanks ,one people left and I have higher chance to win  :p :p

And lastly for people who are saying this is okay and all... it is not OKAY.

Its like promoting risk of being scammed.

Well i dont know lin personally, so i cant tell if he's trustworthy or not. But lets assume he is really that honest, but something very terrible happened to him or changed his current situation, WHO WOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY?

Since  _BMW_M3_ is only incharge of posting here in GH and doesn't even have any say to what happens to the money after we send it, who can take responsibility if lin is unable to fulfill his part of the deal?

Do we just forget about the $600 and get on with our lives? lesson learned? damn.

But are you sure if he has enough money ready to place the order to factory if Paypal holds the GB money ? Anyone here has $20-30k ready to spend ? And if it leads a long delay,will you guys not cry about that ?
Paypal's customer service is just terrible for Asian.
But this is not the final decision.We should wait until Lyn contact with Paypal.

I think this stems from the fact that this conversation has never happened. GBs happen all the time. This is the first we're hearing about issues with PayPal for people in Asia. I do agree that maybe they should reach out to LZ and figure out how he makes it happen.

I know that paypal service is terrible for asians as im an asian myself. I also know for a fact that spending that large amount of money for investment is not really an option for everyone. But other korean gbs are happening and i haven't heard of any issues regarding payment via paypal.

So why was this issue kept from us in the first place? I thought they already had everything set and ready for PP payment especially when we are about to pay a premium price.

Edit: $30

Hooooweee, save $30 on a $600+ purchase just to remove any buyer protections that you might have had to begin with(I don't see much with MoneyGram). I dunno about you guys, but if I was going to throw this much money at a hunk of aluminum to be shipped to me from around the world($83 shipping, wtf) then I would want every available buyer protection. Anything otherwise is asking for trouble. I'm not saying that this is a scam, I'm just saying that if anything at all happens such the money up and disappears, you are sol and there's nothing you can do about it.

As a seller myself, I am prepared to deal with PayPal fees for the products I sell and the group buys I run because I know that not only will I myself be protected by it, but it gives the people that I deal with just about the most protection on their purchases that they can get. To try and do otherwise is just irresponsible. I know that situations concerning PayPal use might not be ideal everywhere, but like was mentioned elsewhere in the thread, if there's all these issues with using a reputable service like PayPal abroad, why exactly haven't we heard of it being an issue? And if there's people that have had a good experience with PayPal in the past AND are nearby or available to the OP, why is that option not being considered?

I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just saying that people need to take the right precautions in situations where there's a lot of money being thrown around and even the slightest chance of problems happening. This is especially apparent with some of the history of "problem" group buys that the mechanical keyboards community has.

Couldn't Lin ask Kin or LZ for help? They're all friends with each other and live in Korea, don't they? I know Kin also packaged both LZ and Lin's boards in the past and will be again with LZ's latest group buy.

Lin should really chat with Kin and LZ about PayPal. Many people want to join, but without the safety net of PayPal, they may be hesitant.

Edit: tldr; Kin and LZ have experience with PayPal/Group Buy money, so maybe they can help Lin.
Both Kin and LZ have problem with PayPal.
Btw, I <3 you Shin

Hooooweee, save $30 on a $600+ purchase just to remove any buyer protections that you might have had to begin with(I don't see much with MoneyGram). I dunno about you guys, but if I was going to throw this much money at a hunk of aluminum to be shipped to me from around the world($83 shipping, wtf) then I would want every available buyer protection. Anything otherwise is asking for trouble. I'm not saying that this is a scam, I'm just saying that if anything at all happens such the money up and disappears, you are sol and there's nothing you can do about it.

Moneygram has absolutely no protection against it. Their website itself says under multiple scenarios that you will not be able to get your money back https://www.moneygram.com/wps/portal/moneygramonline/home/CustomerService/ConsumerProtection/ (https://www.moneygram.com/wps/portal/moneygramonline/home/CustomerService/ConsumerProtection/)

So I'm glad there's now a Paypal option

We've found a solution in Shin. Shin is able to collect payments via PayPal and transfer them to Lin. PayPal will now be an option for payment. Shin and I will do the drawing on Saturday and post the results. After that, forms will be sent to the winners.

papa bless

Will you be streaming the drawing or no?

No problem, looking forward to know who gets the luck of the draw to burn a hole in the wallet.


Thank you for sorting out the payment fiasco. Goes without saying everyone appreciates it.

Can confirm paypal doesn't treat kin very well as I bought a board from him a couple months ago and he explained how paypal severely limited his account at the time even though he was doing nothing wrong.  He packaged my order and had my tracking available before I paid my invoice too and has helpful any time I had a problem with anything so his service was great and well documented if paypal needed it.  It does seem that paypal gives Asians quite a hard time.

Super excited for this, these are the definitely my favorite boards of all time! I'll say it again since it got lost among the payment chaos, but you should keep a waiting list around from the initial drawing, so that if people drop out and such, you just go fairly down the list of the initial drawing.

Thank you so much for this enormous amount of attention and love on my keyboard.
I can't say my keyboard is the best, but I'll make a good product.
Due to the nature of the aluminium keyboard, there may be some slight scrachs or be stebbed , color differences.However, I will try not to make such product as much as possible.

 thanks.

Really surprised at the odds, better than 1:2 for EM7, only just over that for the Dolphin.

Glad to see PayPal worked out, it sucks that there aren't better options for buyer protection :(


Thank you M3 for running this, do you have any info on the plate layouts?

After the drawing, we will have a list of people that won and that did not win. If a winner drops, we will pick a name from a hat (so to speak) from that list of people that did not win.

Shin and I happen to be busy and work. ;) It's hard for me to talk with him on weekdays due to time difference.

I think you are misunderstanding romevi and my intentions, I don't think he is complaining about winning both boards, and I simply told him that he, halv and yuktsi were not the only ones who won two boards,  nothing else.

No one is craping on this thread, so stop telling me to "start my own gb" and accuse people of beeing disrespectful.

I'm a 100% sure that everyone who joined are seriously happy they got a chance to acquire one of these boards

No smt and diodes means you'll have to solder all those small bits yourself

Since it's a.87, the NerD TKL PCB and tx87 PCB should be compatible

How in the hell do you have a $600 board (factoring in shipping) with 50 boards and not include SMT work or diodes?  Those are marginal costs that every build in this price range includes.

I feel like this whole thing is amateur hour.

I'm not experienced with this sort of thing, but $10 seems all right, and I believe the TX87 pcb has a good reputation.  So to summarize the differences the A87u is Ps2avGB firmware with no smt, and no diodes for $30, and the TX87 pcb is Jigon firmware with components soldered for $40?

Is one firmware better than the other?  I only have experience with Duck o2d firmware.

I think 50pcbs is a little too little to go for smt? Don't expect too much for a 550$ custom kit at such low quantity. Plus custom kits don't usually pre soldered with components.

Seriously.

A87u uses ps2avrgb4u. It works with bootmapper which is also available Mac OS. While JigOn is only available in Windows.
If you don't mind the shipping cost. I can hand solders the components foc for a few of you.

Adding 10$ more and u guys got SMT

BTW , this Dolphin need a very hard machining process because of the curves , that's more curves than Dolphin v2 as well ( Dolphin v2 retail price is 450$ without PCB ) . Linn also change to a better material so price is higher . I don't think  Diodes and SMD would be a serious thing. That's not cost much when you guys can spend around 600$ for 1 board  :thumb: .

TX87 is designed by Leeku and produced/QC'ed by Kin25. It doesn't get any better than this.

I might still go for the Winkeyless.kr PCB for the Zen experience of soldering the diodes myself. Find your inner center, close your eyes ... the diodes will solder themselves and cleanse your soul.

I don't think you can sell off spots. If you can't do it, then they'll cancel your spot and RNG it to the next person.

Just tell the GB runners to drop you, they'll raffle off another person.

Sorry for my misunderstanding but we don't allow selling slot of this gb , if you guys can not afford , we just simply take the slot back and then re-draw . But yeah , we can trade :thumb:
Again so sorry for this confusing

Any update on SMT option for EM7 PCB?

Adding 10$ more and u guys got SMT

BTW , this Dolphin need a very hard machining process because of the curves , that's more curves than Dolphin v2 as well ( Dolphin v2 retail price is 450$ without PCB ) . Linn also change to a better material so price is higher . I don't think  Diodes and SMD would be a serious thing. That's not cost much when you guys can spend around 600$ for 1 board  :thumb: .

4-6 weeks was unfortunately our initial (very hopeful) timeline. The realistic timeline after talking with factory, acquiring pcbs, etc. (which is included in the forms that will be sent to winners HOPEFULLY tonight if not tomorrow) estimates ~14-16 weeks for production and ~2 weeks to ship.

It looks like order forms are being sent out as I have received mine.  There seems to be a surprise color added.  I wasn't expecting this.

(http://i.imgur.com/hPCeMED.png) (http://imgur.com/hPCeMED)

It seems like a lot of people in the community get different top, and bottom case colors.  Originally, I was thinking about silver top, and silver bottom.  Is there a risk of color mismatch?  Part of me also wants to have a completely red dolphin.  How long do we have to decide on our order forms?   I'm probably spend days researching color combos.

I also noticed that there is no option for a steel plate.  Was Lyn's design philosophy for Dolphin only ever intended for tactile switches?

Yes, a surprise Red color eh? :) You have up until the payment date (03/17) to decide the color. After that date, options are locked in.

I think im going to go with a gray top, silver bottom, and red plate like in this pic. I plan on putting GMK Muted on this board when ever it comes. I'd image it will look exactly like this lol. Although the red option did derail me a bit.

I've been googling color combinations all morning.  I already have a LZ CLS on order that is all grey so I thought I would do something for the Dolphin.

These are some combinations that I'm thinking of.  I'm also going to choose Winkey.
+Silver/Silver hopefully with a silver tag.  Maybe a red enamel fill on the lettering?  Not sure how feasible that would be.
+Red/Red with a gold tag, and white coloring on the lettering.
+Red top/Silver Base/Silver plate

I think it would be pretty neutral. I was thinking about doing a red bottom and silver top with GMK Burgundy as well. I dont know how well it would work if I choose to put any of my other keysets on it though.

edit: Ya those additional pics are a little odd. That keyset doesnt look good with that combo. Perhaps its the red plate. Maybe I should just go with a silver plate instead haha.

Your shipping will be combined, although I imagine it will be more expensive given the extra weight/size.

I'm working on color answers right now guys, please bear with me. If you guys want a different color tag for your Dolphin or EM7, please make a note in the comment section. If it is possible, we will honor those requests.

Please remember to save your edit URL if you would like to change your order. Thank you!

EDIT: Also, we ask that you please make sure your mind is made up before submitting the form. Changing your order results in a ton of manual work (and manual work means possibilities to screw things up). It makes your life and our lives easier if you wait a bit to make sure you're positive about your order. As always, if you have any edits you need made, please pm me.

The grey color will be close to the lighter color. If you want to select a tag color, please include it in the additional comments section.

I ended up going with a dark grey top and black bottom. The black bottom objectively matches better with other colors. With silver you're kinda just stuck with beige.

I've submitted for Champagne Gold Top and Gray Bottom for now.
I thought about going with Black Bottom but that might be too contrasting.

And I've put in for extra PCB and extra plate as well lol

The total now is more expensive than the LZ-CLS I've bought extra PCB and plate with. LOL.... Bye $700

I think I read someone's experience with cerakoting keyboards on this forum.  It didn't end up well, and ended up with the Cerakote professional refusing to do keyboards anymore. I don't remember what the issue was.

My local finishing shop does good work with cerakoting industrial T6 aluminium enclosures for my job, but I guess the worrying point is getting the inside coated well with limited hook marks..

Looking at the images however, I am doubting whether the pcb would be supported... looks like the plate is what holds everything together?

Yeah, you'll probably have to get a plate made. Shouldn't be too hard though, considering how simple the design is for the plate.

You need the plate as the PCB floats. The top is optional, but the case will look odd without it.

Someone already mentioned this is NOT possible by omitting the plate. Would also be a shame to build this beauty with no plate ;)

You can however saw into the plate a little and mod it for split left shift. I did that for the TX1800 and it works great. You will have all the keys you need for ISO but with an ANSI enter cluster. I can live with that.

It looks quite similar to the ceramic white
I like the color, but it may be a little difficult to find a paired cap sets.

Any update on whether the engraving on the Dolphin will be colored red or not?
The engraving is not colored.

This is great. I hope the tags can be silver on non champagne gold boards.

I wonder if people are just buying EM7s for a special collection and intend to sell them at a high price later.
I personally never used EM7 so I'm not sure if I'll like the layout or not.

I also do not know how good/bad EM7 will be with noise and vibration from keypresses. I know mass-made Leopold FC660M is built solid and also has a sound-deadening material inside, too.  In other words, does EM7 require additional work with sound-deadening material inside the PCB, etc to prevent it from sounding hollow with key press?

I'd like to see more videos of EM7 but I can't even find any. lol

I don't think most people would do that whether in this group buy or others.  I'm assuming the average price of one of these kits are $600-700.  People seem reluctant to purchase high priced kits, and I think there are better ways to spend money than to tie up your money for 12-16 weeks plus unforeseen circumstances to make maybe $100 of profit.

I'm sure noise and vibration is going to dictated by your switch, and parts selection.

Like CMYK said, there are better and safer ways to make a couple bucks

Most if not all metal cased keyboards have a slight ping on the bottom out. So you'll most likely have to put some foam in.

I put sound dampening foam in all my boards regardless of their sound properties. It's one of he easiest "mods" you can do that can change the experience of the board

By the way, thanks for offering SMT with the EM7 PCBs.  :thumb:

Has an ALPS PCB ever been made for the EM7? The base ALPS kit from the currently running DSA Light Cycle GB actually supports the EM7. The extra 1.5u \| has to be used on the bottom row to account for the lack of a third 1.5u keycap but otherwise the compatibility set is not needed.

Yeah, the layout seems like it would be a bit difficult to adjust to. Especially with the position of the modifiers. It's still looks amazing though.

Nah, I'd say they feel in between stock cherry mx black and stock gat black. The housing for cherry switches are kinda scratchy and don't create the same feeling as vintage blacks

What switches are y'all putting in yours?

Either vintage mx blacks w/ gateron yellow springs or vintage black stems with zealio housings and gat yellow springs

I was thinking about nixies, but I'm broke enough already

I would love to try genuine Vintage Blacks, but buying them from other people seem to lead to varied batches. :(

I heard Gateron stems in cherry housings feel the same as vintage Blacks. Is this true?

PM him for availability

Thank you!

Paid!  My wallet is hemorrhaging, 2017 might be the best year for customs, but it may be the worst year for the wallet.

I'm planning on buying sampler packs of many different switches to see how I like them.  I'm going to try Invr stems in Zeal housings, Zeal stems in Invyr housings.  I also want to try jailhouse vintage blues and see if they are compatible with Zeal or Invyr housings.

I understand some have not received invoices. Shin is doing his best to get invoices out asap. Payment will be extended until sometime next week. Remaining Dolphin and EM7 spots will also be given at fcfs basis. Please do not post until I announce the date and time they will become available. Thanks for all your patience!

Probably gonna be safe and go zealios.  My last build I bought polycarbonate stickers from tx-kin, sip sockets, lube, 65g sprit gold springs, and 100 cherry clears.  All that work and I still seem to favor my zealios boards.

Has anyone tried the new Cherry switches with the updated slider? They are so smooth, smoother than Gateron. I haven't gotten my hands on vintage Blacks, but I can imagine they're like the new stems.

I was thinking about Zealios too, but I'm iffy on them. I didn't like the noise the housing made on my last project, but I'll be giving them a try again in the future.

It makes sense that the new blacks are smoother. It uses the same design as the silent version. I have a silent red on my tester and was shocked to discover it was as smooth as vintage blacks. The new blacks look promising. Might have to build mine with some of these if I can find them. (Managed to get back in! )  :D

Update:

Machining scheduled to be finished 5/27.

Anodizing should be completed 6/15.

Super.  Always nice to be kept up to date.

Is there any chance of a video of the machining, please?

Out of curiosity, any chance you could convince Lin to gift us a Dyesub Dolphin keycap per board? ;)

Any chance he'll be running his dye sub PBT group buys again? His stuff looked just like OG Cherry stuff! Scoops and all!

Sorry, I didn't see this!

If you look at the first page, there's an imgur link that shows a few color samples. One of the boards has a Dolphin keycap and Whale keycap.

I think it would be such an awesome addition, just as a novelty.

Hey guys, quick update:

The GSheet I linked (found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Is4xiHPJ-WfkKh1ONVtm8Thl021AdN7prRtfXoXSe9Q/edit#gid=0) was only created for a quick reference for Lin. I haven't finished adding pcb, extra plate, tags, etc. I will hopefully get those finished tonight. I will post an update so you all can reference your final orders. I got a little too busy yesterday to finish up the sheet. I will ask Lin to wait a few days so everyone can verify their orders look okay and I will give him the go ahead to start anodizing those 60 boards. Thanks everyone! As always, PM me if you have any questions/concerns or if something doesn't look right with your order. (I'm human! I make mistakes!)

That's a relief! I was worried there for a second since I didn't see my second order/extras.

Still super conflicted on case colors. I made a quick count of all the dolphin combinations.

Combinations I'm on the fence with:
Silver/Silver
Gray/Black
Black/Black

I want an all black collection of boards, but gray/silver is just overall appealing  :-\

Excellent! I'm in for a SS plate

I'm sorry for misunderstandings, i mean i'll cut it myself in local shops

Ah sorry, will cut one myself if there's a file made
I would like it also as me and another member were talking about getting brass plates made.

I seen Lin did a Dolphin keypad buy. _BMW_M3_ and nguyenkimtam, is there any chance you guys could talk him into doing a buy for us?  :D

I absolutely want/need a matching numpad.

Hi friends! Quick update for you all:

Dolphins are nearly through anodizing. In the next couple of weeks, I will provide information on shipping! The time is nearing!

Regarding the ask for the plate file, Lynn said it's a no go. Sorry guys! :(

Can two piggy back? Serious question though, brass plates are something I've never used. Any benefits? I decided too late that I needed an extra plate and PCB so I need to try to source them after the fact.

These will be shipped via EMS from Korea. They're not shipped directly from the factory as they'll be checked for quality. About 60 Dolphin sets have finished anodizing, they will begin QA soon. :) Stay tuned!

I believe we're looking at estimated 7/17 for all keyboards to be completed! So I'd say 1-2 weeks after that we'll begin shipping! :)



*MAJOR EDIT*: As many of the members here didn't like the "Geekhack Edition" text at the top, Lynn took your feedback and actually went ahead and changed it to Limited Edition. So yes, you'll all be receiving LIMITED EDITION LX3 boards. I feel like Oprah. You get a Limited Edition, you get a Limited Edition!

Any pictures of the underside of the keyboards (Dolphin and EM7)?
There was one picture of the raw Dolphin prototype you posted some time ago which did not show any engravings on the underside. I wonder if it stayed the same.

While you guys wait, here's a useless em7 pro tip:

Prepare a 1.4cm x 4.2cm "dust cover" to place inside the logo socket. I just used scotch tape to secure the acrylic.
I used a semi-transparent black acrylic. It adds 150 wpm yo.

It would be rad if we could get a SVG/DXF file for the logo.
I'd like to 3d print an insert for that logo - probably out of a clear co-polymer.

The EM7 is shorter than the Dolphin, so your wristrest might stick a little bit out: http://i.imgur.com/Fpe99m6.jpg

Wut? They're the exact same exterior dimensions. The length difference in that pic is an illusion due to the angled bottom.

Overall length is the same as a regular 87 tenkeyless. It's just the wavy side curves that stick out a little bit.

FYI friends, I believe the keebs are in Lynn's hands. Last I heard (3 days ago) he was waiting on the SMT PCBs. Besides that, I think we're good to go! I'm waiting for 3 addresses from people that did not include them in the form. I've sent them emails.

I believe we will have to do somewhat of a staggered shipment as PayPal will only release his money in increments of $10k once x number of people (not sure on exact number) receive their package. I'll keep you up to date with the latest info. I can't believe we're almost there!

I talked to Lynn a few weeks ago and it looks like we're ready to begin shipping next week! PayPal is being a PITA regarding releasing money. They've told us that they will release money in $10k increments as we ship. As such, I belive Lynn is doing a "staggered" ship. Basically, once PayPal releases $10k, he'll ship $10k worth of boards. I believe he's starting with Korea/Asia so we can get these rolling out quicker.

Don't quote me on this EXACTLY as I think he's still ironing out the details. I believe this is pretty close to what's happening. XD SHIPPING TIMEEEEEEE.

Okay guys, I have some good news and some bad...

The good news is that as you can see, some of the Korean GH members and some of the Koreans that are building boards for GH members have received their kbds. (Someone above posted a pic of a Dolphin! So pumped to see that!)

The bad news is that some of our PCBs did not pass QC. It's bad news because it means we have to wait a little longer, but I am glad we're not shipping out bad PCBs. (Trust me, I'm at wits end with some of the garbage pcbs I've received...) Lynn is now waiting on a new batch of PCBs and then we're good to go. The August (at latest September) timeframe is looking accurate.

As always I'll update everyone ASAP when Lynn receives the new PCBs. Please PM nguyenkimtam or myself with any questions.

Regarding the pcb , Linn is working on that. That's not easy and fast to fix and make a pcb. Furthermore Linn is very busy with his personal life issues and his work problems so we hope you guys can understand and sympathize for us. We are trying to make a perfect keyboards for Geekhack-ers and don't worry , this will be completed soon

Quick question.  For those of us who paid extra for leeku pcbs does the pcb problem affect us?

I'm confused.

Is this only effecting EM7 PCB's, or all PCB's?

SMT PCB's, or non-SMT?

Could the problem briefly be explained? We're approaching the 6 month point, we haven't seen much and there are Korean members who have already gotten something. Can we alter orders to ship without the PCB so that we can buy something else?

As Linn said that is something wrong about the circuit. But yeah , he is also not good in English so we can not talke more about it.
Regarding Korean Members , there are some people not yet posted on kbdlabs , so that's hard to say that not much Korean members received .
The reason of this delay because LInn want to make a perfect matching PCB with his board so it's hard to buy something else.
Shipping without a pcb will very hard for Linn .
Firstly , The shipping fees will have extra
Secondly , Linn will need to sort 2 times for shipping , with a condition that he is very busy with his personal life ( moving place , work , health .etc... ).
I hope you guys understand for us. Because this is the first time we and LInn organize the international group buy with a huge quantity.

So that's much appreciated. And i believe that will deserve with very good keyboards .

For anymore information , just inbox me. and i will support you guys as soon as i possible

Again thank you for your support this group buy

Alright so I spoke to Tam on Slack. I feel like there are a few things that should be spoken about with everyone in the buy, and not just me or whoever was there. A picture of a few boards will not ease everyone's mind.

Apparently they scrapped the original PCB due to it not fitting in the new case. I get it, it happens. But this wasn't communicated to us.

That's the reason there's a delay right now.

I wanted someone from the GB to speak up about this, mainly because I'm participating in this buy. I want information like that to come from someone running it. Why were we not informed of such a huge change? I for one went out and found a plate from another participant. What do I do now about getting another PCB? What exactly is this timeline going to be now? Can we be reinvoiced so that we can keep our buyer protection?

I just don't feel as though a pic makes me feel better. To make it worse some of the pics that we've seen have been from people that already have their boards. I think a little more communication would ease my mind, and the mind of a few other people.

Quick edit. Tam in no way shape or form is this directed at you. I appreciate getting any news at all from you this morning. I understand your role in this and we appreciate it.

Thanks Arson. 

I thought there was only one make of TX87 PCBs, and was a pretty standard size.  How could it not fit?

I wish I knew. I guess its why I've been asking for an explanation as to all this. I get it, **** really does happen. But mention it to us :/ We've all been patient.

First of all , i would like to say that the biggest barrier is that language , Linn is not so good in English so that's sometime we can not communicate or misunderstanding. But yeah if still tx87 pcb , this also make for Dolphin ( mean Tx87 Dolphin version ) not the normal one. That's the same with Dolphin v2 ( you guys can check the attachment file , L3 = Linn ).
We are really sorry when not informed about the pcb , but actually i just knew about it when Linn said delay. And yeah , of course , we believe that good for this group buy for changing about this. There are not only about the fitting of the case and pcb , but also some problem in relationship between Linn , Kin25 (tx maker ) and Leeku ( designer ) , if i not misunderstanding with Linn , so he stop using the tx pcb.
The timeline now should delay to October for the lastest but we are planning shipping in September , but i should say October for sure in everything.
Regarding the reinvoiced, i have tested with a friend who's also join this group and I realize that really hard for send a new invoice and refund the old one. Because when I receive the money , paypal will hold the rolling reserve money , and just release a little bit one, and i can not refund this amount to you guys unless i use my own money. In case i refund first then reinvoice again , i checked and paypal don't allow me use the money they hold for this groupbuy ( cause the released money i already withdraw and send it to Linn), so if i refund , i also need to use my own money to add to paypal balance ( that's  will cost a lot fees because paypal in Vietnam not allow to transfer money directly from Bank , must use visa card).  So i have one option that , i will reinvoice with value 1$ and note everything about the extend invoice , the total value. Of course , i will refund 1$ after that. But yeah , i much appreciated if anyone believe in me and Linn , so we don't need to reinvoice , but that's your right about it. Just a few truths that me and Linn are already sold something ( Linn sold his car ) to pay the factory first for you guys ( paypal holding too much money ). I got no advantage in this group buy so i hope everyone can understand for my hard.
Hope this comment will clarify .

Yikes, just so I understand here.

We will not be able to get a new invoice from you, pay it, then get refunded the old invoice? Correct?

I'm just a bit concerned since my buyer protection ends next month. :(

I might do that but i need to wait Paypal release the money in old invoice. Then i will refund that. But yeah , that's might complicated for us , because now when i received any money , paypal will hold in rolling reserve , so that i need to wait 6 more month to release that new money.
So i recommended that i will send 1$ invoice and note everything in that , i believe that will work if you guys want dispute ( of course in case , we scam you guys )

The only issue is that PayPal doesn't work like that. They won't go off of what you wrote in a note.

So if you invoice for a dollar and someone disputes, they'll only get their dollar refunded, not the amount from an expired transaction.

Once the 6 months are up, that specific transaction is out of Paypal's hands and there's no more protection. :(

They will care if that necessary sir , i was met this case . Just contact paypal , even that case close , they will deal more. You can ask them for sure about it.
Btw , We need trust in here . But  yeah , you guys have a right about it . But i hope everyone here understand our hard , and waiting for 1,2 more months and we finished. We are already paid full for the factory
P/s : i already asked Paypal via email about this , hope can get the response soon from them

What's the difference between the tx87 PCB and the dolphin PCB? Smaller size?

It's a real bummer that this uses a custom PCB. Using a common pcb such as tx87 was a big reason for buying this keyboard.

I actually don't know about the difference between 2 of that because i still not receive mine.

As i know , Linn will make a huge quantity PCB so we don't worry about the replace. But i believe ( not sure , just a personal guess) that not so much different in size between 2 pcbs , just not perfect matching if use tx87 pcb

I will update when i get more information. Many thanks

Have the EM7 PCBs also been changed to a new design? If so, will they be compatible with the previous "V2"-bottom EM7 boards?

Hi. Everyone,

First of all, I can't english well. But I think that you can understand below contents well...hope...hope...hope...

Today I personally contacted with Lyn because of something else issue.(other issue from away this gb)
During this time, I told the Geekhack Dolphin GB with Lyn about many replys.
According to Lyn's request, I can write about the following information.
I didn't participate in the GH dolphin GB, and I can't answer any more.
Just it is written without filtering and just I delivers information from him.
If you have some questions, please contact to moderator of this GB.

Basically, Lyn is currently having a very difficult and busy time due to various personal and health issues.
Nevertheless he have been doing his best to successfully complete this GB.

1. Current progress
   The housing has already been completed as seen in the photo, and the PCB is as follows
   All problems have been resolved, and production and testing are in progress.
   - 87 PCB: Finished production and basic test completed, final test is in progress before shipment from Lyn.
   - EM7 PCB: Production in progress (Drilling hole on PCB)

2. Problems
   Paypal issue was done and this was already to inform from nguyenkimtam.
   Nguyenkimtam's Paypal account was held.
   Due to this Paypal Issue, about 2 month ago Lyn proposed a full refund to participants and drop the GB,
   but finally it was decided to continue this GB.
   As a result, currently Lyn have been received only $10000 from nguyenkimtam and it is very small coverage cost.
   It is just covering only Dolphin 17~18 units.
   So It is expected to proceed as follows at present

   Send 10 units ==> Receive ==> Particapant's confirm(Paypal) ==> Transfer of released paypal money to Lyn.
   ==> 10 units shipped again .......

   So you can easily imagine the full shipment duration.
   It is expected that it will take a long time until the entire dispatch.

3. PCB Compatibility
   The internal layout of the Dolphin V2, which was progressed in Korea, and the GH dolphin, is the same.
   So there is PCB compatibility between the two versions. (87 and EM7 all)

I hope that this information is helpful to understand the progress and all issue wil be cleared.

 Cheers

If I'm refunded my PayPal amount I would money gram to speed up my order. At this point it should be something some of us consider to speed things up. We're going to lose PayPal protection anyway so might as well make life easier for everyone if it helps Lyn. We're actually helping ourselves too.

I don't see any different between you use money gram or lose paypal protection cause as i know money gram also don't have it. Btw , if you want i will refund for you with all amount , and i will accept the lost of paypal fees cause my paypal now is limited now. We need trust your trust

No I meant wouldn't this be easier if we just sent the money directly to Lyn via MoneyGram? What I'm saying is that I trust Lyn, and to help him get his money and push some of our orders through we should consider freeing up Paypal money and sending through an outlet that can't hold funds from you guys :D

The problem of Paypal , me and Lynn almost done with it. Lynn sold his car and i sold some of my stuffs to help him paid the factory cost. And Lynn paid and received all boards frm factory so that's no reason if you use Moneygram can speed anything up. Again , i confirm that Linn always try his best to ship all of stuffs to you guys, the problem now only the PCB and might be a little bit in his personal life and his health issues ( he is quite busy now) , not paypal or money anymore

So because of the size of the order PP locked up the funds and Lynn and you had to sell your stuff to fund production of the keyboards?
That's insane guys.  I'm surprised you didn't just fold the GB.

so has bmw given up on running this buy completely?  Also would like an update to where we are on the status, saw a em7 from kr buy with lynn pcb.  I am assuming given the shipping order Dolphin --> EM7, now that some of the KR EM7s have gone out, can we assume GH Dolphins are starting to ship?

Disregard this ^

I paid for the leeku pcb on my order, so given that Lynn is remaking pcbs, what is happening with my original order?  So I paid extra for leeku pcb for no reason?

Bmw is busy these days so i cover for him. Actually Em7 and Dolphin on Kr gb use the different one with geekhack one ( or just a little amount of pcbs work well in the first pcb batch )  ,  there was a long time when they received them.

Linn shipped for Korean first because the payment process of them is faster than us, easier in shipping handle and small quantities.
Regarding status , we can say that producting new PCBs , and i hope you can patient with us. Linn is trying his best even he got many many problems with their jobs , personal life and his health as well.

Regarding leeku pcb , you also get the new extra pcb instead of extra leeku. I believe the cost is higher but Linn was cover it for us.

This is the first international groupbuy of Linn so there might be have some troubles. I hope you can understand.

We much appreciated about it

Quick glance says the only issue left is getting a working PCB. Once those are done, all boards will be shipped.

This, of course, based on my ****ty Korean, combined with google translate.

Thank you Ken.

Please understand that we are in different language, i can not understand Korean and Linn is not good at English so there might be misunderstanding in some points. But we are have the same point is that bring the best quality keyboards to you guys. Linn have a reason to stop  using leeku pcb and make a new one. If you believe in us , just respect it. We already have many many challenges. Linn and me also lost money and time with this groupbuy ( even i just the money gathered ). we really need your support and believe more than trying to make everything complicated.

I much appreciated some always understand and support us.

As we said this is the first time Linn make an international groupbuy so we have a lot of issues.

At the first time Linn planned to cancel this group buy but i persuade and trying to help Geekhack guys and Linn to make this.

So thatís now we appreciated about your patient and support as well.
Linn is trying to make it as soon as possible.
We are still supportting and replying you guys, with some delay groupbuy , they donít. So please understand for our hard.
Iím a collector of this hobby so I understand very well you guys feeling when waiting. Just hope you can understand and help us to finish this groupbuy. Iím very sure Linn wonít let us disappointed. His products will very nice

Thatís our plan to shipping by thr end of this year because the factory expect with Linn that they will complete the pcb before new year. However , i just talk with Linn that they will delay in the few days and Linnís child was born so he will be super busy. That is out of our expect. ( Linn will ship to geekhack order same time as korean order , just prefer the Asian order in the first batch of shipping)

Iím also a joiner with this groupbuy and i have some friends in this so personally, i also want it soon but i can understand how it difficult when Linn or anyone run a huge quantites groupbuy.
I hope you guys can patient because we are in the last part , almost manufactured , just about the personal issues from maker and I respect about it.
I much appreciated
Regards

As delay from the factory , as well as the family issues of Linn ( he just had a first baby,...). So the shipping was delayed. Therefore , there are no exactly time for shipping , but i would make a deadline that we will arrange for first shipping before April ( which mean around March , because there are nearly Lunar New Year ). If we can not reach the time , i MAYBE  open a refund option for everyone.

So let me get this straight? He has a baby, you show a few pictures and now everyone involved in the buy is just supposed to be happy for him?

The one who started the thread isn't active anymore. Lynn communicates through Tam. Complete lack of communication and honesty all around in this buy.

Maybe an explanation is deserved for those that have been waiting? Why was the PCB changed from Leekus to now Lynns own? How long was this pregnancy for there to be no planning around it? Can the boards ship without a PCB?

Thanks :D

Firstly , can i ask have you joined this groupbuy ?
He has the first baby so he have a lot of thing to do and worry , beside his work and his personal life ( his health have problem). He doesnít make this group buy for profit , just to share his hobby so thatís he need to balance his life also , not only concentrated this one
Secondly , first time to arrange an international groupbuy with huge amount is not easy, packaging , safe shipping, payment , QC are really hard and need a lot of time. Do you think if a huge of boards ship back to Korea to fix or do something because have issues ? You can check that a lot of groupbuy are delayed.

Thirdly, Lynn not so well in English and bmw is not a senior member and not communicate as much with Linn as me so i can do it for them. Have  you see that i was hide or disappear when you guys ask or something ? Even iím fighting with cancer for a year. Iím trying do my best so you think if thatís lack of communication , just go back to some delay old group buy and check.
There are technical and personal issues so what i should tell to you more detail? With Linn and leeku have personal issues which can not public so i must say all here ?? Linn have a reason and i respect the Maker. With shipping without pcb , thatís very hard for us , need to pack 2 times and do everything 2 times . Also the shipping fees. In addition, iím not sure if that have a good fix with any else pcb , so if that not run ok , who is responsible for this ?

I also will give a refund option to show that we are not stole your money , just there are many issues appear in the first time we make this. We are trying my best to do everything ok.

Again , iím here to help everyone on geekhack get a good quality product. And iím trying my best , i understand all of complain because thatís your money. But thatís non-profit group buy so i hope you guys can understand for us.

Shipping has already been paid for? Why doesn't Lynn allow for people to choose if they want it with or without the PCB and things get shipped separately. Also can we see pictures of the boards? Sometimes its better to get news from the person running things, it has nothing to do with you. Please don't try to say that other GB runners do the same, because most of the people here don't care about what other people do. Its disheartening knowing that you think someone else's flaws should become Lynns privilege.

The pictures of board i taken and uploaded already on this thread, please check again.
With pcb Linn already order from the factory. Thatís hard for Linn to manage about shipping 2 times and sorting again. As i said the main problem now is PCB and Linn personal issues.
I also will give a refund option if we can not reach the deadline. So thatís our idea for this situation.
Btw , if you didnít join this gb so there is no reason why you try to judge us not honest or something else

As i said there are not sure that the tx87 or any pcbs else on the market can fit well with that. There are some case that pcb not well fix and you need to use a paper or something to keep it fix. So that is the problem. Also Linn are very busy right now so thatís why we delay.
Again , the deadline is march , so if we can not reach , refund option will available. And you can choose which one you want

It's because prototyping is expensive and people don't want to pay for it. Also a lot of preferences come into play for PCBs, so it can be a bit of a pain.

PCBs are super cheap to prototype, as in sub $100. Absolustely worth it considering the amount lost if something is wrong :'(

Or just standardize on a specific design like the Pok3r for 60% keyboards. 
BYO PCB would also solve a bunch of issues.

There are standards for TKL (A87/B87), I believe the PCB(s) for this buy followed them. It sounds like whoever made the PCB for this just had some dimensions wrong.

I heard it was LED issues for this one, but you're correct. This board should work with TX87 PCBs, but for some reason they decided not to use them.

yea so I've heard quite a few people using leeku pcbs for their dolphin. I know there might be some issues that could arise, but at this point i couldn't care less.  I really just want my board.  No need to ship twice, just once.  Just ship me my board and I'll handle pcb issues.  We can chalk the two "leeku" pcbs I bought to a write off... (another kind of bull**** I don't really want to get into) 

Even better I know I am not the only person that shares the sentiment, so I can get a list of everyone that wants this option in CONUS.  I can even proxy everyone's board, so Lynn doesnt need to ship more than one package.

As a general matter I think we need to separate two things:
(1) should a group-buy runner be held to the same standards of customer service and timely delivery as other types of sellers, especially considering that this is done as a hobby rather than as a business?
(2) should a group-buy runner communicate transparently and in reasonable detail regarding delays and setbacks?

The answer to (1) is NO but the answer to (2) is YES. I feel like the group-buy runners here keep citing (1) as a reason not to do (2).

Lynn can be busy and there can be delays--that is fine. But it is reasonable to ask exactly what it is his busy-ness is preventing him from doing. Is it designing a PCB? Ordering a PCB to be manufactured? Other things? What exactly remains to be done? Is it true that no after-market PCB will fit inside the Dolphin case?

Can we get an option to get the keyboard cases now and pay extra shipping when the PCBs are ready? I realize that is extra work but I think it would make people feel much better, and it is not too much to ask.

First off, I don't think it needs to be separated.  This is a business and a hobby, Lynn is making money on these boards.  No its not his full time job, but there needs to be some semblance of responsibility or accountability if I am paying for a money for a service or a product  Lynn isn't making these boards out of the kind of his own heart or making these boards at cost or even near at cost.

So with these conditions, I think it is safe to expect a bare minimum amount of responsibility.  Look this buy started out with BMW.  We had concerns with him being a relatively new user and his ability to run a GB.  He and Lynn both assured us that it would not be an issue.... look where we are now.  I am glad that Tam has at least taken over in this capacity, but the concerns were completely valid from the beginning. 

What I want from this groupbuy:
- a clear timeline; I know Lynn is busy with the baby, ect.. which probably should have been planned for, but now we beyond that.  So all I am asking for is a clear timeline.      i.e. WHEN the pcbs are going to be finished manufacturing, WHEN does lynn expect to get them, WHEN does Lynn expect to ship us ours (specifically the GH ones).    I am not asking for 24/7 dedication, zero delays, he can account for personal life matters, but give me a date.
- a heads up of delays before they happen, not after.  If you are not going to meet a deadline, I expect you to realize ahead of time.  So give me a heads up prior if the expected timeline needs to be changed.  I think this is just general common courtesy
- a clear answer on these questions:  Can I use a87 pcb?  If no, what kind of issues are with the a87 that prevents me from using with the dolphin?  Can I get the board without pcbs AT ALL?

Post by: nevaenuf on Fri, 12 January 2018, 19:30:12
I'm waiting on the EM7, so I'm pretty sure that the PCB can't be sourced from somewhere else.  I'm waiting and hoping that this buy comes through.  These group buys seem to always have delays as people learn how to deal with manufacturers and other issues.  Folks getting sick, family issues, or just plain flaking out for a period of time. 

I join these group buys knowing these delays can happen because I love customizing my board and getting something that large companies just can't provide.  I love hearing about the design process and the production process INCLUDING the issues that come up.  That's all part of the story for small batch, artisan production. 

However, it can be very frustrating when the buys go dark for too long.  I mean, were trusting a community member with a LARGE chunk of cash for a very long time.  It helps to maintain trust when get information like, "Hey guys, we encountered a problem. Were thinking about this solution. We expect that the project will be delayed by X because of it".  And when things change, it would be good to know, "That solution we tried two weeks ago, it didn't work out so hot.  So, we're going to try something else."  The F77 project is a perfect example of this.  Now THAT group buy has a story.  And when I finally get my board, I'll feel like I was part of something really cool. 

Goodwill and trust can be maintained by great communication.

I understand Lynn had to sell his car to cover the PCB issue so I don't doubt his commitment to the GB at all.  If anything I'm impressed. 
The anticipation however is driving me a little crazy because I'm really looking forward to my EM.7 - Kustom Ergos don't happen every day after all.

Firstly , i'm thanks for everyone who's always support us and understand for us.
This is the first time i handle a big gb like this , and Linn as well, so the communication may not good enough to build the trust. I'm so sorry about that. Furthermore , with the lack of English from Linn , so that's hard to communicate clearly and detail for all of his idea to all you guys.
I'm actually will go to Singapore soon for my cancer treatment so now i really don't have time and good mood, and Linn as well , he has many things to worry at this time , and i will get back on around 27 January  , so i will answer all of your questions on 29 or 30 January , about timeline , shipping without pcb , fitment of pcb , etc...
I hope you guys can understand for us of this situation , also , as i said , the refund option still available when we can not reach the deadline for all of you

Sorry to hear about your sickness.  I understand that you are a person first.  I appreciate the work you guys put in to enable these buys. I've been watching the em7 long before this buy started so I really want the buy to succeed.  I don't expect you all to be able to make the same kinds of promises that companies make.  I don't expect that level of customer service because you haven't promised that.  My comments above are not meant to be disheartening.  Rather, I hoped to convey to you what gets me excited about these group buys AND what gets me nervous.  Thanks for setting up the March deadline.  That gives us a time to look forward to for results or more information. I hope your treatments go well.  Take care of yourself and talk to you later.

Hi all,
Just talked with Linn today , he said will shipping in 12 March ( we have a Lunar New Year so that's longer ).
Linn also just test with A87 again , and see there are no major problem with that. So you can use with A87 pcb.
Linn are now busy with his first child and near holidays so he can not shipping now ( with and without pcb ). But btw , as deadline plan is 12 March , if the pcb still have problems and still can not shipping at that day , i will open a request form with shipping without PCB to anyone want this
All the best

Linn are now busy with his first child and near holidays so he can not shipping now ( with and without pcb ). But btw , as deadline plan is 12 March , if the pcb still have problems and still can not shipping at that day , i will open a request form with shipping without PCB to anyone want this
All the best

i actually will missing in a few weeks because of my treatment , as well as my holiday ( Lunar New Year ). So don't worry if you guys won't see me online. If you have any questions , transfer slot or something else regarding this groupbuy, please inbox or pm me on slack , i can have a quick mess for you  :thumb:
Again , thanks for your patient

If we choose to ship without the PCB, will we be refunded for the PCBs?

What about the EM7 PCBs -- will those ship with the board?

Again, thanks for being the messenger and we appreciate the effort Tam -- shame that the original GB runner can't see this through.

I understand how time consuming PCB testing can get, especially for a new one. It's best to have everything tested before shipping. Take your time, Lynn.

Well I've already been scammed out of one korean board - I just wasn't cut out for this hobby's time frame after all.

Still looking to give up my EM7 spot so at least I can recoup some money: 1 extra pcb, red top, black bottom, silver plate, gold tag.

That still happening?

Dear all,
All PCB for Dolphin are ready for shipping , Linn also already packaged some of the first batch shipping to Asia but i asked do more with some EU and US orders ( so we will ship together all Asia , part of US and EU order together ) so the time will be longer.
As our plan , we will shipped out Dolphin in the first batch first , that's easy for Linn to control
Actually i had to go to Singapore for my cancer treatment unexpectedly so i can not handle the shipping list to Linn so i will do it , double check when i comeback from the surgery ( estimated is 27 March - 2 April ) , also with that time Linn will package for the US and EU order for the first shipping batch. I hope you can understand for my situation , but we nearly reach our goals
Regarding the next batch, that's depend on paypal so i will inform everything when people get their board without any issues in the first batch
I will be very busy and tired in the next days so probably i won't check anything on this thread , inbox or Slack so please wait until i comeback to answer some of your questions. Just hit me an inbox if you have anything to ask, i will try my best

Shin

Yea I figured the gh tax we paid was worth just to get him to run a buy in the us.  Now seems like we paid more than them and have no end in sight while they enjoy their boards.

Seems like the Korean orders had no problem being delivered, even Lynn Classic, guess that's the price you pay for not being Korean.

Glad I ended up not getting in on this.

Where did you see that?

v3 is already done and shipped, lynn classic ran and it shipped a few weeks ago

no idea what the hold up for this is at this point

V3 as in the version after ours?

I like to give GB runners the benefit of the doubt but two new Lynn GBs completed before this one is just disgraceful.  >:D

Anyone got a direct line to Lynn to ask him what's up?

It'd be smart to ask why he cut BMW M3 out in favor of Shin too.

besides v3, lynn classic, I also see the Lynn Dolphin Linger (65%) has been shipped last last month. https://i.imgur.com/R9TsvOr.jpg

So recently I'm always thinking if our orders are really suffering technical issue or something else? Did we really pay to Lynn? since the paypal address is not Lynn himself. Does Lynn really know there is a GB related to him in GH, anyone tried to contact him directly?
