Title: [GB] GMK Solarized Dark - COMPLETE
Post by: rainb1ood on Tue, 20 June 2017, 22:18:11
Update:
All the trackings have been sent out.

A major number of the tracking numbers have not been updated (pending). Our USPS pickup person has left USPS, so today, we'll be taking these to USPS. You will see it move tomorrow.

--

If you're waiting for a replacement keycap, you will get the tracking today after I finalize the list. You'll get tracking via email on file. If you've changed addresses since then, please notify support@keyclack.com . I will be holding the replacement keycap shipments for a day before dropping them off at USPS.

--

This GB should be marked to be completed in 2-3 days.

Do the asian and european proxies have separate MOQ's or are they all in the same Keyclack MOQ? Also, will the main Keyclack group buy page order quantities be updated with orders through proxies?

Is there any way to confirm what shipping to Australia from the Asian proxy would be?
I am a bit worried about ordering through a translated taobao but if they can confirm shipping and that it will be ok to order then I may go for it.

What happened to the text only modifiers? (like the ones in Oblivion (https://www.keyclack.com/groupbuy/gmkOblivionR1))

Were they rejected by the designer's preference or is there a wider, community preference for GMK's standard legends?

I'm not such a fan of the standard GMK text+icon, I much prefer the text only or icons only when there is something like Cyrillic. Perhaps I am in the minority?

Hi all,

I ordered the base and ergodox kit last night, but the keyclack website did not send me to paypal to authorize the payment.  When I ordered GMK oblivion from keyclack, I was sent to the paypal site while placing my order to pre-authorize the charges.  Did I do something wrong on the Solarized order?  Or should I just expect to need to authorize the paypal charges once the GB is done?  Just a bit confused as the payment process seems to be different between oblivion and solarized.

Thanks for any help

I don't remember them ever being brought up in the IC, were they? IMO it depends on the set if they are appropriate or not, and also the designers choice. I did a poll nontheless and it came out at 60% for text only IIRC, but it might come out different for other designs.

I believe you authorized PayPal in connection to your KeyClack account of sorts. I changed (canceled and reordered) my order for the SKOG TKL like 5 times, couldn't decide on colors, and I was never asked to authorize again after the initial order.

I ordered just fine last night and was taken to PayPal... I believe keyclack allows you to pay by CC,  maybe that's what happened? @😂@

Do the asian and european proxies have separate MOQ's or are they all in the same Keyclack MOQ?

I'm not privy to the exact agreements between them, but as I understand it the proxies' orders will be added to the total in the end, and all of them will be counted as one order so even if one proxy has eg. 30 orders and the other two combine for 220, that means MOQ is reached.

Also, will the main Keyclack group buy page order quantities be updated with orders through proxies?

If I remember correctly they will all be added together in the end, but we'll be giving updates to the community while the group buy is active.

I looked into it some more, and you are right.  When you pay for something at Keyclack with paypal for the first time, you need to pre-authorize the purchase.  When you do so, there is a text blurb saying something along the lines of "Use bank account XXXX for all future keyclack purchases."  Since I had already done that with oblivion, I don't need to do it with solarized dark.  Not sure if paypal will ask me to authorize the transaction or not once the GB is done, but at least it looks like the order went through correctly.

Thanks for your help Oblotzky.

It was, but I admit I scratched my head for a bit wondering if I had just conflated the Solarized discussion with the Oblivion discussion. I had to go back and read from the start, but it is on the IC thread, from the first page (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=87677.msg2364867#msg2364867).

...poll ... at 60% for text only IIRC

A closer split than I would've predicted, it seemed like enthusiasm was really high for the text only. Useful tidbit of information anyway for future designs :)

Thanks for clearing that up. I was sure Solarized was going to be text only, but probably it was the Oblivion discussion that made me think it was certain.

MyKeyboard say this on the buy page (https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/solarized-dark-base-kit_232/): "When completing your order for a kit, we will charge your PayPal account immediately.  At the end of the group buy, we will send you an invoice with the final pricing and refund the difference.  We are currently not able to authenticate future payments."

Can we take this as confirmation the proxies will be getting the price break benefits when/if the quantities are met?

For Oblivion, #1 MOQ was dictated by combining the numbers, so 150 US and 100 Asian orders would meet GMK's MOQ of 250. Regarding #2, the asian numbers were not added to KeyClack's page at the end. #2 might be different of course for this GB.

Once you get authorized, you sign a billing agreement with us basically, and you're good to go from there.

All prices are honored. It is a group effort. If you choose to order through a proxy, the price is honored, according to the break. Everyone has a slightly different price because of taxes, etc that each country has to work with.

For the comment about adding the numbers are the end, that is something we will do. Oblivion was a special case, in which collectively with our proxy, we met with 250 MoQ for the White base set. We manually review the numbers after and see if the numbers are good to go.

Hope that clears things up.

Have you seen what a GMK render of CMYK looks like for example? (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170629/8c6accc351dd5e5f8a64870103bf117d.jpg)

These colors are not even remotely accurate on my calibrated oled display or my iPad Pro. I feel like if that looks accurate to you your display is calibrated way way off. Like you must be massively ramping color/contrast.

That's just one example. Gmk renders for recent sets (hydro and plum) are pretty close to what the sets actually look like. Thesiscamper's render for plum is not even remotely close to what the set actually looks like. But renders are renders, just gotta wait for the set to actually come out to see what it really looks like Į\_(ツ)_/Į

Edit: GMK's render of honeywell is pretty spot on too

To my eyes the GMK renders are ALWAYS less accurate.

For hydro the blues are undersaturated. The gray is oversaturated.

My best guess is GMK is rendering the images in something other than normal RGB/YUV. An extended color space or something, and then not doing a good converstion. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there were some way to filter the GMK renders to make them all accurate (with the same filter) because to me, they all seem flawed in the same way.

Interesting lighting you are choosing there. Like I said, no renders are accurate lol, they are renders. All I'm saying GMK has been closer imo. The GMK renders seem very bright and a lot of white in it.

Do you have examples that are different? If I'm wrong I'd love to be corrected. I just googled photos. I don't own plum and my hydro hasn't shown up yet.

Your response makes it out like you think I'm trying to win an argument. Just to be clear... I am not.

I could care less which one of us is correct. I just have seen nothing that would lead me to trust the GMK renders. If I'm lacking information, I'd love to know. Rather than just saying it's wrong, I'd love to know what specifically you think is wrong. Which render. What is wrong with the render? Etc.

I'm not trying to invalidate your opinion, just understand where it comes from.

All I said was interesting lighting and renders are renders. It's just something I have noticed. I'm not dissing thesis cause I love his renders and his upcoming boards, but his renders aren't always accurate. I don't have pictures as I don't need them cause I own the sets.

You're nuts if you think gmk renders are more accurate than thesiscampers. Nuts I tell ya! But yes, sets will not look exactly like the renders because many sets today is custom colors (hydro, plum, etc) which aren't going to be reproduced with 100% accuracy.

Disagree. The lighting in that actual picture is horrible and does not allow for accurate representation. The white balance is way off. Sekeletor uses standard yu2 and DY which more closely resemble the non gmk render. That render is a little "bright" but still more accurate.

It should be common knowledge at this point that renders will not match up perfectly with the final product.

Last example. But I hope we can steer away from the render accuracy.

Renders are what we want the set to look like. Not all renders will be reflective of the end set. Thesiscamper, the render genius, has made a huge effort in making sure his renders are really accurate and they're the closest thing we'll get to the real deal imo.

Here's one more example

And I fully believe the designer are anal enough that they will ensure gmk matches the desired color accurately. They will get samples, and they can reject samples.

Anyway, numbers looking great for not even being half way through the buy period.

Agreed, maybe I can ask a couple of questions and request an update:
  • Are any of the sets looking like meeting a price break when the proxy numbers are added?
  • I'm curious about the HJKL keys with cursor legends, are those specifically for 40% boards, or are they for some other layouts?
  • I've just noticed the standard modifier color cursor keys are all row 4, yet the accent set appears to have the up arrow on row 3? is that just an error on the layout drawing or is that actually how it will be produced?

1. Mods should be close, and spacebars I think

2. Those are known as vim caps.

Is it possible to include colored 1U Alt and 1U Crtl? Thank you.

I talked to jchan and he said it's possible, will update everyone when we clear all these additional keys up.

I don't think I saw a follow-up to this -- did the extra key requests get resolved or is that still pending?  I had requested a R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn for 65% near the end of the IC thread.

Maybe the layout is incorrect, but it looks like the only 65% right side column they're supporting for 65% is DEL/HOME, PGUP, PGDN, END since the only R3 key is PGDN and the only R4 key is END.
Don't know what the other R1 PGDN(a 96% keyboard), R1 END (an 1800 keyboard?), and duplicate R1 HOME keys are for.

Home, pgup, pgdn, end isn't unheard of for 65% support.  Personally prefer pgup, pgdown, home, end, but honestly it's of little importance.

I'd assume they are for TKL if you want both rows to be R1 (similar to how people will do all arrows R4)

I do think it needs an R3 Home and an R4 green up arrow though. R3/R4 Page Up/Page down would be nice, but less important. (I DO agree with euphxenos that they SHOULD be added, but they wouldn't stop me. I'm not sure I could deal with home/pgup/pgdwn/end. Either home/end/pgup/pgdwn or pgup/pgdwn/home/end are fine though. I would prefer both options, but as long as ONE of them is available it works for me.

But yeah, no R3 home just seems like a mistake when there are 3 rows to do pgUp/pgDwn with.

My guess is the duplicate R1 Home is supposed to be R3. Otherwise I think you are right, it makes no sense.

It's not easy to add keys after the pricing has been released and the GB has started. That's why there was an IC. We try to support the most popular layouts, but can't support each and every personal preference people have on how they arrange their keys.

So having 2 R1 Home and no R3 Home is intentional? Does changing the row actually effect pricing? I don't see why that key WOULDN'T be converted to R3 unless there is some keyboard with double home keys that I'm not aware of.

The duplicate is not intentional, but the R3 home and any other additional keys will have to be discussed with jchan, since we can't just raise the prices.

No problem  :thumb:

As for the accuracy of the renders, I missed the earlier discussions. All the images you see, be it renders or photos are affected by lighting. I try to make it as close as possible to what the designer wants, and only send the final renders when the designer approves.

So the workflow is: designer's idea > I try to make it as close as possible to what he/she wants > designer approves > set is made.

That probably got a little out of hand, but I do agree with one of the early observations - your render appears darker, more gray and less green than the color specification would indicate, the modifiers actually look dark grey, almost charcoal on my screen (which is a TV, 4:2:2 color depth only and not calibrated i.e. pretty bad for comparison like this.)

I did a screen grab of the various images next to each other. Only because I wanted to try it out, the bottom middle with random characters is Solarized Dark in gedit:

[attach=1]

I'm hoping the manufactured article tends toward the greener and lighter overall, but I can't obsess about the variations between the different renders and the physical for the reasons already pointed out: GMK color will not match exactly, lighting, color temperature and physical texture will have a very significant effect on the perception. However, while we are looking at the renders, is there a color space issue that might be amplifying the difference on some screens?


EDIT: and as I perceive them, GMK renders tend to look a bit pale and washed out.

Honeywell had code buttons in addition to windows, so I just used a 1.25u 'code' button as fn. This set just has shebang (no code or windows)

I must admit this makes me a little uneasy, given the colors are specified precisely by the values stated. I anticipated the end result being somewhere between the renders with just a little deviation from the color values (because GMK aren't likely to 100% matched.) A lot of people love the render, so it won't be the end of the world to sell the set unused, anyone who is disappointed should easily find a buyer.

That the designers prefer the slightly darker/grayer over the lighter/greener is fine in itself. What I wish is that your intentions were clearer, especially on the product pages - it's the ambiguity that's the problem here, not the final choice you made.

I understand your concern, and here's why we decided to change it: the solarized theme looked good on screens, but we felt the contrast between the mods and the alphas was lacking in caps. If you can find the earliest renders, there's almost no point in using different colors when they're almost indistinguishable from each other. For the most recent renders, I tried to introduce more contrast into the set, and the three of us liked it and it got good feedback, so we went with it. As for the color codes, it was a mistake on our part that we weren't clear enough, I just assumed everyone was in sync but we weren't.

For the mistake in keys, it's mostly misunderstanding again. I apologize on behalf of my friends, but we're trying to fix it but decided not ask for an updated GMK renders until we're sure we have the keys locked. The KLE is the most updated one.

But solarized dark is meant to be a low contrast theme, so I can't say I like the decision to increase the contrast :/

The three of us all agreed to make it as close to my latest renders as possible.

I must admit this makes me a little uneasy, given the colors are specified precisely by the values stated. I anticipated the end result being somewhere between the renders with just a little deviation from the color values (because GMK aren't likely to 100% matched.) A lot of people love the render, so it won't be the end of the world to sell the set unused, anyone who is disappointed should easily find a buyer.

That the designers prefer the slightly darker/grayer over the lighter/greener is fine in itself. What I wish is that your intentions were clearer, especially on the product pages - it's the ambiguity that's the problem here, not the final choice you made.

I understand your concern, and here's why we decided to change it: the solarized theme looked good on screens, but we felt the contrast between the mods and the alphas was lacking in caps. If you can find the earliest renders, there's almost no point in using different colors when they're almost indistinguishable from each other. For the most recent renders, I tried to introduce more contrast into the set, and the three of us liked it and it got good feedback, so we went with it.

You can continue using it on your text editor and ignore this set. It doesn't have support for 40% anyway.

Here's the final mockup of all the keys that will be included in each set. Apologies for the KLE mockup, GMK takes a while to re-render and we don't really want to bother them that much.

(http://i.imgur.com/QUmKZFB.jpg)

Just to summarize, here are the changes since the GB launch:

Base Kit
- Added 6u centered stem spacebar
- Replaced R4 1u Fn to R4 1.25u Fn
- Removed duplicate R1 Home
- Fixed R3 accent arrow up that should be R4
 
Colored Mods
- Added 1u ctrl and alt

Spacebar Kit
- Added barred J vim key
- Added 6u accent centered stem spacebar

Here's the final mockup...

Base Kit
- Added 6u centered stem spacebar...

If you can add it on the image I would be suggest stating that the 6u spacebar is centered stem, it seems to be asked endlessly on Massdrop keyset discussion (along with "is there a 2u shift?")

Since they're no longer defining the palette, I would remove the hex color codes as well. If possible tweak the overall color of this mockup to be closer to what you think the final set will be like.

...As for the color codes, it was a mistake on our part that we weren't clear enough, I just assumed everyone was in sync but we weren't.

It really didn't register with me until now. I do drift in and out of discussions and the group buy for Solarized starting when it did caught me by surprise - I think I'd decided the colors here were good, and rainb1ood said the modifiers would be text, which was perfect, so I focused my attention on ICs where I wanted to offer my $0.02. In my mind Solarized was a set I was satisfied I wanted, so I left it to the more experienced hands to figure the kit breakdowns and coverage. As a result I missed any talk about using the renders as the reference point for the final colors.

Rookie error I guess from my side, but it doesn't hurt me because I have belatedly become aware of the design evolution before being locked into a purchase.

...the contrast between the mods and the alphas was lacking in caps...

The colorway is based on Solarized Dark so I think anyone would expect some reasonable latitude has to be allowed in the transfer from 2D to physical object. The only issue now is for a few buyers the product advertised on the buy pages is not quite the product being produced.

I don't expect huge amounts of flak will be directed at jchan/Keyclack. Many people will look at your renders and expect or want exactly those, but jchan's rep might be dinged a little by those who wanted and expected the more literal Solarized Dark colors. Being able to sell the set for ~$150 or more should take the sting out of any disappointment.

Live and learn...

hi everyone,

Just to clarify some things about the color codes: yes, they are hex color codes. however, we have to match them to pantone in order to review them thoroughly and make sure they are accurate.

Hex codes vary a lot between screen and screen, IPS..TN panels... 8bit...10 bit, etc, but we'll make sure to lock down the pantones and that will be a process we'll undergo with GMK as we commence with the color matching.

Hope that's good for everyone, cheers.

Great to see barred F and J. Was sad to see those missing from Nautilus, I guess they tried too hard to work Euro keys into the base kit at the expense of something I think more people would like. Gonna have to forget about this set for a while so I don't die of anticipation!

I'm confident you'll find the right colors since you'll need to verify the samples.
I think a lot of us are just wary after seeing for example gmk penumbra, where the expectation was to compare it to the SA version and when it finally landed, it was a little lacking, imo.

I have no use for the 1.25, so this wouldn't matter to me, but that seems kinda odd to have only a single symbol only key while the rest are labeled no? That seems like way worse aesthetics to me.

I'm guessing you guys are talking about the 1.5u Del for R2. It's for the HHKB layout which uses "Delete", and the arrow doesn't look good with the other mods. There is no way to make it into an arrow for this set, other than changing our minds. I don't like the arrow, it looks bad with the other keys.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe, at the moment, GMK only makes convex spacebars if greater or equal 6u or less or equal to 2u.

First time getting a GMK set, or participating in any non-Massdrop group buy for that matter. Incredibly good looking colour scheme hooked me, EU proxy reeled me in. Considered the coloured mods but kept it at a base kit, I need to be at least slightly responsible with my money after all. I'd have considered waiting for Laser but seeing as that's probably running on MD, I'm out. Not going to deal with customs for that.

I have no clue what GMK ABS really feels like, and others' experiences vary too much to really tell me anything, especially how they'll feel for playing Touhou compared to my current nameless cherry profile PBTs (which I do think feel slightly harsh), but at least I can rest easy knowing that if I don't like the feel, there'll probably be several people standing in line to take the set out of my hands.

Here's to a good buy and no delays, cheers.

Its pretty easy to get burned by the Keyclack countdown timer.

When given the end-date of July 12, I assumed the latest a set could be ordered was on July 12 at 23:59 PST.  In actuality, the latest it could have been ordered was July 11 at 23:59 PST with the GB closing at July 12 at 0:00 PST.  Kinda tricky, but its an easy fix!

All the recent keycap GBs I've joined were at the last minute since I was unsure of how much I really like the set, had FOMO, then ended up selling. Had to get this one the moment I saw the renders, glad there wasn't any procrastinating this time.

Same here.  And in fact, same reason.  There's so much coming out, and I could buy them all.  But I shouldn't buy them all.  And things pop up at the last minute.  I waited 'til the last days on SA Carbon, and then dropped it because I found out Nautilus was coming out.  I sent keyclack an e-mail, but haven't heard back yet.  I figure at worse, I can use the money to join another GB.  But of course, because of this, it feels like I have to have this set.

The term you are looking for is brittle and that is also the reason thick double shot pbt caps are hard. Because abs can just stretch when there is thermal stress. PBT cracks.

Largely what I mean by not knowing how it feels is that I do know ABS is a bit softer and feels less 'dry' in general, but my only ABS experience is two sets of garbage-tier stock keycaps (CM and Razer) and one set of ok-tier stock keycaps (Ducky), so I'm very intent on finding out just what makes GMK the bees' knees.

The question I have is, why are you waiting until the last minute to commit to the buy? You are not charged until the buy completes. There is no incentive to wait. Unless you do not know if you will have the money for it until the last minute, I would advise you join group buys sooner than the last day, and you can avoid this conundrum altogether.

Answered above, at least for me.  There's so much coming out that it's preferable for me to wait until the end and make sure that I want it.  Especially if I'm on the edge as far as whether I want to do it or not.  If not, then why even have deadlines.

Unless you do not know if you will have the money for it until the last minute, I would advise you join group buys sooner than the last day, and you can avoid this conundrum altogether.

I'm pretty sure mykeyboard.eu charged me when I ordered (at lowest MOQ pricing, with a note that the price would be adjusted when the final amount of orders and prices was determined.

Its pretty easy to get burned by the Keyclack countdown timer.

When given the end-date of July 12, I assumed the latest a set could be ordered was on July 12 at 23:59 PST.  In actuality, the latest it could have been ordered was July 11 at 23:59 PST with the GB closing at July 12 at 0:00 PST.  Kinda tricky, but its an easy fix!

All the recent keycap GBs I've joined were at the last minute since I was unsure of how much I really like the set, had FOMO, then ended up selling. Had to get this one the moment I saw the renders, glad there wasn't any procrastinating this time.

That happens too.  Keyclack has changed so that isn't the case anymore, which is cool.  I think it's because they're using paypal payment agreements.  Not sure how it works if you don't use paypal.  But I join on Massdrop, and even if I just commit, it shows up on my bank account.  I don't like that.  So I wait to join until the end, or near to it.

I live in Southeast Asia (Thailand)

I have tried Asia Proxy but the shipping cost is 800 Yuan(around $118) and I don't know why.

Mostly when I ordered something from China the shipping costs are kind of cheap, Just only this time that I found the shipping price issue from the Chinese Store.

Shipping from KeyClack is $76.8 because the only one option that they provided is DHL Express. (But they gonna ship through USPS if you live in the UK)

The last one EU Proxy, they doesn't ship to my country(ship to EU countries only).

I believe If they provided USPS for me the shipping cost would be around $25  :'(

Just to shine light on this again, we're choosing DHL for some international countries, as shipping to those countries are really "iffy" when we send things out.

Express services are necessary to make sure that the package goes to your destination. I've had a lot of high value packages lost with USPS First Class International, and am trying my best to avoid them. As we ramp things up, I hope to negotiate better quotas, but shipping is crazy in Los Angeles.

I hope this improves over time, and we also had proxies in place for those high traffic areas such as EU and Asia (Taobao).

I mean...EU Proxy looks fine, but Asia Proxy seems useless to me.

Hard to contact, not accept Paypal, incorrectly calculated shipping price($118 for a keycap set.)

I have waited for 5 days and didn't get any message back from them.

I understood that why you are providing Asia Proxy for us but I have to say that Taobao is not a good platform for the buyers outside China.

If you can make someone else such as Kbdfans be a new Asia proxy that I will be very happy.


So... I have to skip this set anyway then, see you on round 2  :thumb:

Considered the coloured mods but kept it at a base kit, I need to be at least slightly responsible with my money after all.

I have bamboozled myself and ordered the modifier kit anyways during the extension. Whoopsie. Here's to hoping I don't get too giddy for other sets so that I may carry this one around for eternity.

I don't believe it... been looking forward to it so much.. I don't know what happened, maybe I never checked out my basket or something. My Matrix Abel is waiting for it.

The only thing I could see me parting with is perhaps the stock modifiers as I did splurge on the coloured kit. Probably not of much use unless someone else only wanted the mods.

I think so too, apologies for that. I used light box with white LEDs, the LEDs could be causing the blue hue. But under neutral light, its closer to thesiscamperís render.

Hey everyone,

The designers decided to remake the colors as they aren't 100% satisfied with them. GMK is already handling the request and we updated the GB page on keyclack for it.

Sorry, but this will definitely cause some delay.

Title: Re: [GB] GMK Solarized Dark
Post by: avid on Fri, 03 November 2017, 06:36:27
So how much delay are we talking about? 1 Month?

I see the sample pictures was posted a month ago. Did you decided just now to remake them, or did you remake them in the beginning of october?
(If so, then new samples should have arrived?)

Regarding the change: it was a recent change, after reviewing the colors again. Just want to make sure it's done right, as I personally feel that the legend color can be fixed up a little.

I'm sure we'll all be satisfied with the result.

Yea. It they haven't approved colours yet, manufacturing hasn't started either. Provided these colours are better then the last, hopefully they will be approved within a week's time. Not sure how long production takes once colours are approved though. Christmas shipping madness may impact this as well. Not too worried though as GMK Nautilus should ship soon to tie me over.

I don't think the TU2 legends will be tweaked.  I'm assuming when they talk about tweaking legends, they're talking about the gray color used in the alphas.

No, we are far along the GMK queue. Once the colors are confirmed it will take about another 2 weeks for the full amount of plastic to arrive. Once that has arrived at the factory they'll start production and sorting.

Here are the chosen colors:

Here's the reference mock-up:

(https://i.imgur.com/1lDhU0e.jpg)

We chose the old alpha legend color, as the new sample is virtually white and wasn't really requested by rainb1ood, gatix and me.

The new alpha base color looks too dark in the photos, but it's really hard to capture the color. It is very close to the mock-ups I did, at least the way I see it in my monitor (Dell IPS).

Iíll send another email shortly to GMK about that inquiry, although I think theyíll respond on January 2nd according to their auto response I received earlier.

Sorry cant give you answer right now :(

Might be a little too late to ask but will the dark modifier set come with a green legend 1u R4 Fn key? I'm planning on doing the hhkb layout but using the coloured legends. Cheers!

Upon checking the GMK mock-ups, it looks like we don't have a colored Fn included with the kit.

The problem would be moq.  I donít think they even sold 250 mod kits. But since itís a custom color we still would need 250. I think itís something like $2-3 a key, so somewhere in the $600-1000 range.

Weíd need something like half the people who got the mod kit to buy in for like 2-3 caps each if we wanted to get it down to something reasonable like $5-10 a person.

I only bought this set to use with the color mods though, which it looks like I wonít have a use for. Guess it will probably be a quick flip on this one. Such an odd omission. They even have all the different versions of Control and an hhkb delete. Bummer.

Could you not just use the R4 Fn key from the base kit? All legends from the mod kit have different colors anyway, so the cyan would just be another different legend color.

The colors are done in rows, so Caps lock and enter are 1 color, tab and |\ are another. It would be jarring to me to not have the fn key match the row. Same reason I would never use the color mods on a 65%.

I guess Iíd nothing else the normal mods will probably look pretty nice with the nautilus alphas.

Itís my own fault for not noticing. Is just a bummer. Iíll probably see if there are extra ergodox kits just to get a blank lol. That said Im not sure I even like the final color anyway. I hope it looks better in person.

The colored mods were a relatively late addition, and we tried to keep the kit as small as possible. If there were enough requests we would've added it. It is unfortunate that this one key leaves you disappointed. We hope you will change your mind when you receive the kits, or at least be able to pass it on to someone who likes if you're still unhappy.

but they're not all the same color in each row.  bottom row for example, and even more if you use iso enter.  I just have a feeling that when all assembled, the tu2 fn will not look out of place.

Oh, no doubt. I didnít mean to sound like upset or anything. Itís impossible to judge with photos or renders. I loved the nautilus renders, and hated it in photos. In person I hate the mods and love the alphas so Iím still keeping it.

My only real concern is it just looks grey and not dark teal, but Iím guessing the color is impossible to capture without a lot of effort doing color timing.

If nothing else I can put it on a 65% with the accent arrows. Iím just disappointed because I should have paid better attention.

They're not referring to the plastic trays, they're referring to the cardboard wrap that goes around them.

As do the alphas. Will be hard to judge I think until we get it in hand. Although, I'm anticipating it will be a bit lighter than originally thought.

Hmm, yea that definitely doesn't look like the renders. Curious about the fate of the colored accents... any chance you have a photo of those?

the pantone match is pretty exact so I'm pretty sure it's just really really absurdly bright like what even. colour temperature is different between the two pics as well so you can't trust em.

Perhaps. But Iím hoping not. This particular set has taken a long time compared to a number of other sets that entered IC after it (royal Alpha, blue on black, 9009r2) so itís had a bit of a long journey. Either way the balance is def off in those pics. We need to wait till the runners have the keys on hand and can do some comparisons to the samples

we're hoping its just the lighting, the new color we selected is indeed GMK said they used

the sample in the bottom is the old color for alpha base that we didnt like bec its too blue and lighter. the new color should be the same as the one highlighted green in the photo that thesiscamper took.

Yeah I saw that and thought it looked way too orange. Gives me hope that SD is close onto the original renders. They need to fix their photography to make it more realistic and true to tone.

The mods look nothing like the render, I will hold on to my judgement but 80% chance I'm asking for a refund at this point.
3 different people with 3 different cameras/phones took 3 pictures. And they look nothing like the render. You can't tell me it's the lighting anymore.

Some sets are just very difficult to capture accurately in pictures. For example, barely any pic of Nautilus looks like it does in person. Same with Yuri. I hope these pics are just wildly inaccurate because they look absolutely nothing like this set was intended. The alphas basically look like tu1..

Holding my judgement until I see them in person, no use getting bent over potato pictures. The caps aren't going to change at this point, and colors have always been impossible to tell in every GB I've been in.

I could be wrong, but I think the colours are not supposed to match the renders anymore. If I remember correctly, they got slightly adjusted from the usual solarized dark colours to a different tone. Claim was that the original colours do not translate well enough to real life. Of course that has nothing to do with the caps not matching the samples (no judgement yet), but atleast for the renders some deviation was intended, wasn't it?

My first thought too...

With that said, I could probably live with a tad brighter alphas, not a fan of dark(=black) mods though. Thankfully I have a "Sky Dolch"-modifier kit laying around if it turns out the keycaps looks like the pictures.

Legends are lighter than on the renders.  Mods are darker than the renders but in person the set still stands.  But it matches the color samples for as far as I can tell. ( sampling was done by keyclack and or thesiscamper)

I just want to explain the difficulties in judging colors by photograph, and even choosing the Pantone Codes.

First, Pantone Codes are constants, you either find (rarely I imagine) the exact color you wanted or settle for something close. It can be brighter, it can be darker, and it can have a different hue. You come up with hex codes and try to find the closest Pantone codes that already exist.

Second, it's hard to photograph objects that reflect light, actually it's hard to photograph anything at all with accurate colors in mind. You can take a photo of the same object and get different white balance every time if you use a phone. Even using cameras mean it depends on how the camera interprets colors, and using different cameras result in different colors. Now if you take into account viewing on the hundreds of different monitors then yeah, nobody is really looking at the same thing.

Third, renders are approximations that still rely on computations based on the real world. I don't have the lighting set up of your room, it won't be the same for better or worse. Even changing where the light comes from can drastically change the look of a rendered object.

Anyway, here's a photo of the mods sandwiched between a black GMK and black Maxkey cap. Please note that the colors in the photo are brighter than what I see with my own eyes, and my montitor is at 45% brightness.

(https://i.imgur.com/PZh959y.jpg)

Here's a photo of the first photograph above, compared to the caps held in my hand. Note that the caps in my hand are now darker than how I see it in person.

(https://i.imgur.com/0gXuixw.jpg)

I find that color matching is hard, and I just hope seeing the set in person will change people's minds about how they feel about the color selection. Also, if you check the renders the mods are almost black, so I'm not sure why there are complaints about it now.

As someone who commented on the "darkness" of the mods, I just want to clarify:

The mods ending up dark is not be an issue for me, if the alphas are dark as well (as solarized is a color scheme based on low brightness contrast and that is one of the reasons why I love the color scheme and got this kit). I do actually like the color of the alphas in the pictures so far though, so I don't see that as large of an issue (as I can probably pair them with other mods in the case of the contrast being too large for my personal taste).

I will wait with my judgment until I get the caps though, as I'm fully aware of some colors being hard to photograph (cyan being one of them, which I guess doesn't help for this set), and that getting the right brightness in a picture also is hard (especially with a mobile phone).

There have been several photos in different lighting conditions but reserving judgement or not, these colors are far less subtle than planned which seems to be a pretty common problem with GMK group buys. At some point people are going to have to pump up saturation in renders because they've been extremely inaccurate lately.

I will admit as a buyer of this set I find these photos very disappointingóeven the nice photos jchan uploaded make the set look far too bright and cartoony. Oh well.

Received my set today. While the alphas do look more vibrant under bright light, they look absolutely perfect in my dimly lit room and it's really everything I've hoped for. The modifiers look black at first sight but noticeably cooler than other blacks, and the blue shows as a sort of iridescent glow when light reflects off of them. Overall, I love how it turned out. It really emits those bluish wet tarmac at nighttime vibes and makes me want to play need for speed carbon again. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vi0rmljsivY)

All pictures so far don't even come close to doing justice to how great these look under dim light.

I think it would be interesting to have a direct comparison for the modifiers. Is anyone able to post them next to something like N9-Modifiers (=dark grey)? N9 is used for mods in Hydro, Skydolch, Terminal, .... The pictures always make them look like something between N9 and CR with zero blue tint in them.

I have SkyDolch and will/can post a picture once I get SD if nobody has done it by the time I get it.  Looking at photo's tho I can't tell the difference.  SD mods might be a little darker compared to Sky Dolch mods but some pictures they also have hint of blue and others they are black. Only the first picture does not have a filter on it (I can't find the originals).  The first and second picture is a board with Ocean Dolch Alphas and Sky Dolch mods and the third photo is in reverse.

***NOTE***  SD is not pictured in anything shown below.

We definitely tried for a darker red on that one.  The lighting plays a big role in his appearance.  :)

Apologies in advance if GMK Carbon mods aren't N9 (they are though, right?!) but I've got some pictures of the Carbon mods next to the Solarized Dark mods.
They're not the best quality, but it's something.

Thanks for posting the Ergodox kit photos.  Oh boy, those mods are a lot darker than I expected.  Not sure if I quite like that.  I'm really on the fence about this set now, it's probably too late to cancel my order though.  Guess if I sell Sky Dolch it won't be so bad on my pocketbook...

Here are some pictures with GMK samples for N9 BV TU1 and TU2 as well as mods from ocean dolch and oblivion

The alphas are nice and dark in natural light. In terms of the mods they are darker than N9 (which I believe the oblivion mods are unless my eyesight is wrong) but they are also a dark blue hue which is nice but hard to photograph.

Hope this helps.

Both the render and mockup showed a  nicemixture between green and blue in darker tones, somehow now all we care about is a "slight tint of blue" in the mods? The mods are basically black at this point, where's my green hue?

Jchan is it still possible to get a refund at this point? I can contact you through the paypal email.

Apologies - I was commenting on my thoughts to the colours, not comparing necessarily to the renders originally offered. I feel like there was an acknowledgement at some point that due to the custom colours there would be a diversion from the renders due to fitting the theme better and obtaining new samples - so I wasn't expecting a render accurate set.

Anyway - its fair to say that these are not the same as the render, but do look much better than the pictures that GMK took directly. I apologise if the fact that I like the keyset and like the blue hue offends/upsets/angers you.

No apology needed. I wasnít upset at your taste/choice. I guessed I didnít explain myself very well there.

I joined the gb because I like the mix between green and blue. That is my preferred choice just  like how your preferred choice is blue heavy. I was just quoting your post as references, which was very helpful, to point out that contradicting the initial theme, the mods are completely devoid of any green.

Itís fair to expect 80-90% accuracy rate between renders and reality, but this is like 40-50% at most. Looking at all the posts and comments I could confidently assume that green hue is not part of the equation anymore. Some where along the way, The initial concept was derailed and snowballed into what we have now.

Iím upset that the theme/concept has been altered without clear head ups or indications. People keep saying renders are not exact, but every other set up until now retains the theme. GMK plum color is hard to capture, fine but the theme is there. One look and you know right away itís Plum. Same goes with Nautilus, itís IKEA. When you look at a set and you have doubts about its identity, then we have a huge problem at hand.

Again if anybody has to apologize, itís me for quoting you and sounded pissed off.

Am overall happy as many people have seen/said the colours are slightly different to the renders (They're close enough tho, you're never to get a perfect match)

My big disappointment with the set is the coloured mods
I only bought the kit due being told that it would come with stepped caps/control

FYI: Coloured mods will include stepped Caps Lock and Ctrl

My set didn't come with either making it unusable to me and many others!

Ignore the lighting in the pic it's just to show the lack of stepped keys

Well there was a posting that they decided to deviate from the original solarized dark colours, so it is not entirely true that there was no heads up. I remember that so well, because I actually cancelled my solarized order as a result. Still I totally get your point. I do not think that the changes in the set have been well communicated. By itself the result is not necessary bad, just not what was promised in the original concept.

Hi,

Looks like in our last exchange with GMK, I (Keyclack) did not catch the 2 keys missing from the modifier set as they asked for verification on the kits.

The fault is mine, and I've already contacted GMK about receiving the 2 missing keys for the kits.

To quantify things:

1. I currently the bulk of the modifiers from the production; 85%.
2. Today, 30 packages went out with USPS with modifiers.

Currently, I'm pausing on shipping, as 90% of people who ordered, also opted for the colored modifiers. I'm waiting for a reply from GMK currently to see how to proceed.

I'm deeply sorry for this issue, and hopefully we hear back soon regarding the 2 missing keys.

In terms of the mods they are darker than N9 (which I believe the oblivion mods are unless my eyesight is wrong)

GMK Oblivion had custom colors except for white alphas (CP) and L9 for legends on monochrome/gray alphas/non-colored mods. The modifier gray is matched to SP's GQM like Carbon is as well.

Are there going to be any extras on the Keyclack store? I passed on the Spacebar Kit originally but the more I think about it the more I think that was an error.

Cool, I sincerely appreciate your transparency. Mistakes happen, please keep us posted :thumb: Have waited a while for this set, don't mind waiting a bit longer.

Do you think this will result in extra charges, or is that something that GMK was already paid for and was missed afterwards?

I didn't order this set because it didn't include the R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn I use on my 65% layout.  The possibility of adding those was discussed in the IC and more so in the GB thread back in June/July.  Seeing the pictures of what was delivered, I can't help noticing that there's an extra PgUp and PgDn in there.  Are those really the R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn?  The ones that couldn't be added?

If thereís no way to cancel orders, would you be interested in taking over my spacebar kit? TU2 isnít doing it for me on this set. If our sets havenít shipped out yet, I wonder if thereís a way to get jchans attention.

are those the gmk penumbra mods? (since I see a stepped CL)
No, that stepped Ctrl should be included in the base set, color kit Ctrl should be purple legend.

Currently, I'm pausing on shipping, as 90% of people who ordered, also opted for the colored modifiers. I'm waiting for a reply from GMK currently to see how to proceed.

I'm deeply sorry for this issue, and hopefully we hear back soon regarding the 2 missing keys.

Hopefully it gets sorted quickly so those still waiting get their sets

What gripes me the most about all this is that there were delays to get the colours right, and they're not. I still think the set looks okay, but it's not Solarized (no matter how much you tell us how the colours look on your monitor)

I'm seriously conflicted.  I think the Alphas look fantastic.  The white might be a bit bright, but it's fine, gives a bit more contrast.  The mods though.  I bought into this kit specifically for the Ergodox compatibility.  I'm surprised they didn't just use the same colour as the existing GMK Solarized mods.  That would've worked really well IMO. 

I hate complaining but I was incredibly hyped to complete my GMK Solarized collection, and this doesn't feel like it's definitive.

...gives a bit more contrast

which is the opposite of the idea behind the solarized colour palette, which has low contrasts and that is what people are complaining about. legends too white, mods too dark.

Which is a fair point, not trying to marginalize other peoples concerns.  Just saying that for me, the mods are the real problem.  I can live with the alphas, but the dark mods are both out-of-character and not aesthetically pleasing.

Mobile developer here. Solarized dark is my default theme in Sublime Text and Vim. I'm slightly disappointed that the set did not turn out like the renders but I am still looking forward on getting it.

tfw you only ordered the Base Kit because you preferred the monochrome look

Are there going to be any extras on the Keyclack store? I passed on the Spacebar Kit originally but the more I think about it the more I think that was an error.

If thereís no way to cancel orders, would you be interested in taking over my spacebar kit? TU2 isnít doing it for me on this set. If our sets havenít shipped out yet, I wonder if thereís a way to get jchans attention.

I might be. Not sure how to sort that out over here as I've not delved into the GH Classifieds or anything like that. Have some trades on /r/mechmarket though. Also depends on what jchan wants to do about that.

Hi,

If you're not satisfied with the colors and would like the opportunity to cancel, please send an email to support@keyclack.com with your full name, or your invoice ID

Invoice ID is in the URL of your invoice found under orders on keyclack.com

--

Shipments without modifiers have been packed and are awaiting pickup

Still waiting for GMK response.

Thanks jchan, not an easy situation to deal with and I think it speaks volumes that you're willing to cancel people's orders who are unsatisfied with sets they haven't seen in person yet.

Please keep up the updates with GMK :)

Oh man that looks good! I just wish GMK would get back so the people who ordered the colored mods can get the set.  I feel like this is gonna be a huge delay. Almost willing to pay the $5.75 it would cost to have the two keys sent out once completed via USPS or something.

When GMK makes mistakes, they fix them quickly, only took a few weeks for replacements to be made for the Yuri Icons. Delays are for waiting to get a production slot in queue. When GMK makes a mistake, they don't stick you at the back of the queue, they just fix it and ship.

No disagreement here, but I didn't see any need to wait for keys that I won't use.

Might make a difference if you decide to sell them later, though...

Perhaps. I'm planning to mix the color mods with the alphas from another set, so I had purchased the color mods with no intention of selling them. I'm okay with it being marginally harder to find a potential buyer or lowering the price if I ever have to sell it.

Incidentally, my set arrived today.  :)

Basically.

He posted 3 Instagram stories of his new products, so I replied there telling him I've sent tried contacting him through 4 channels - Reddit, Geekhack, email, and his website - with no luck. He immediately responded with "Hi Anthony, unfortunately we are out of the office until 4-14. We will reply to your message then."

Hi,

I've been waiting for a reply from GMK.

About  10 days ago, Christoph from GMK followed up with me with the keys. I'm still currently waiting an invoice from GMK however.

I followed up with them 6 days ago, confirming that I'm waiting for an update from Michaela who handles billing, etc.

Just waiting on that still, and following up with an email today as well.

Do we have an ETA on the extra couple of caps from GMK? Wondering what order of magnitude of time we'll be waiting on them, days, weeks, a month?

With Yuri it was just a few weeks, maybe a month, it really just depends how busy GMK is Iíd imagine.

sometimes they can take an eternity to reply, so i suspect they're just busy

and they don't usually give estimates until you ask, so if it slipped his mind in the last email it could be a minute

Have you discussed any solution with the proxies (EU proxy in my case) concerning how to handle the extra caps, or will the extra caps only be sent out for the ones who bought the set from keyclack directly?

I hope everything is ok.  I have severe anxiety and if I was running something like this and something ended up going south I would probably curl up and lock myself in a room go silent let and my mental breakdown pass and then surface once everything was in order, but that's just me.. lol.  I give the GB holders credit for doing all of the hard work so we get to show off our new toys.

In all seriousness an update would be nice and is expected at this point. I did see a lot of new posts of SD a week or two back on /mk so I thought they had maybe shipped out or something.

 I'd love to be able to post a picture of the set!

Call him out on Reddit. It's the only way people have gotten his attention in the past.

His communication skills are extremely poor to say the least. No doubt he's going to come with some excuse how his cousin's neighbor's babysitter's puppy died and he had to deal with that for the last month and his entire world has been in disarray. 

It's been nothing but excuse after excuse with him.

There are threads every now and then calling out Sentraq because his communication is pretty weak due to whatever mailing system he is using. A reddit thread usually gets him to respond right away because he sees it quicker. I've never seen you take that down for "breaking reddit's tos."

Why don't you point out what part of reddit's tos someone would be breaking for posting a thread, asking a vendor (yes, a vendor, not a person. Despite being a one man operation, KeyClack is a business) to provide an update? I must be missing something you're seeing because I sure couldn't find anything.

Or maybe you wanna come clean and say you're pulling that out of your ass and are abusing your power as a moderator to protect someone you consider a friend?

That is not in violation of reddit TOS and is NOT birgading. Brigading requires a brigade. Brigading would be posting your reddit link here and telling everyone to go post there.

This is simply using a medium which isnít visible to the person in question. Posting here doesnít help because jchan doesnít appear to be active here.

This buy was not run out of GH and was posted both here and reddit. There are likely participants who arenít even on GH. It would be an abuse of power for you to remove someone for making a post like that. They are trying to seek support and have every right to do so.

If you canít understand this you have no place being a moderator to begin with. Your role is to moderate equally and fairly. Not protect non responsive vendors or your friends.

Now I am not particularly worried as jchan has been shipping things when they are available which leads me to believe he still does not have the extra kits. Iím good at waiting. But not everyone is nor should they expect to be.

I can see what the benefit of deleting a post like that would be for jchan, but what would be the benefit for the rest of the community?

the problem is that all the times people have tried to do it (save the one, just barely), it personally attacks jchan

these aren't my rules, it's part of reddit's anti-bullying policy, so my hands are tied and i have to be strict on it

i've only ever talked to jchan like 3 times, and not at all within the last 8 months or so, when i thanked him for shipping my GMK soware set

How is asking for a status update a personal attack? Keyclack is a business. You cannot bully a business. Especially not one who has taken your money, not shipped long after the window and not provided an update. And especially not when the way you are ďbullyingĒ them is asking for an update or complaining about delays.

It not bullying when people complain about other business owners. Itís not bullying when people give business owners. No one gets banned for giving donald trump or Elon musk ****. Sure keyclack is tiny in comparison, but I fail to see how that warrants special treatment.


You are bending the rules to suit yourself. Anything fits the definition of bullying if you try hard enough.


Please explain what part of the other post was bullying? Specifically.

All it says is he hasnít been able to reach jchan so he is posting in public, he lists what he bought, and asks for a refund. He doesnít call jchan names, he doesnít insult him. It even ends with a thank you as best regards.

In what world is that bullying?

keyclack is a business but us drama-hungry keyboard nerds (i'd exempt myself from that group but we all know that's not true) can't seem to post about it without also ****ting on jchan, which is where the problem lies

That's hardly a personal attack and that's about the most I can see you having an issue with this comment.

https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/8dze4q/open_letter_to_jchan94_and_keyclack_its_been_over/
Here's the link so you don't need to search for it. Point out exactly what part of this letter is a personal attack and/or why it just barely passes.

He may be tagging /u/jchan94 but he is referring to him as the representative of the business Keyclack, which is literally the first thing in the post.

As seen below, the contact for Keyclack, the business, is none other than Jchan. How are you supposed to criticize Keyclack, as a business, without getting Jchan involved in some manner? You say they are personally attacking him. I say they are reaching out to the one and only contact person for the business.
[attach=1]
This is all public information so please no bull**** about witchhunting or spreading personal info.

no part of the other post was bullying, which is why i left it up, i said that

No, actually. You said save the one, just barely. Is it not bullying at all or just barely passing the line between bullying and not bullying?

jchan is just a dude

He's actually the president of the company Keyclack and, as such, needs to be held responsible for the mess he's created. Meanwhile, he's starting a new GB in ~15 hours and has time to respond immediately to support mail about items in stock at his web store.

i never learn

If that fails, yeah. Wait patiently. It's a group buy, it sucks that the new crowd around here seems to forget that. You have to wait. Don't buy into group buys if you don't understand that, ffs. Just wait for retail and buy it then.

He is "just a dude" that runs a public facing business.  Within the keyboard community, he is a public figure.  No one forced him to put his real name on his emails, his website, or to use it as the basis of his public forum handle.  That was his choice.  I encourage you to take a trip over to https://www.keyclack.com/about (https://www.keyclack.com/about) before you tell us again that he's not a public figure.

Also, jchan has also proven quite capable of ignoring customer feedback, why do you feel the need to shield him from it?  If someone says something threatening, by all means moderate away, but you don't need to shield him from feedback or criticism.  You aren't helping the community or jchan by stepping in the middle of this.

Anyhow...the real reason I returned to this thread was to share with fellow group buy members that I received a tracking number from jchan late last night.  I hope everyone else receives their tracking soon as well.

So for those of us that received our base and modifier kits in March, will two stepped caps be sent automatically or will we need to do anything extra through Keyclack support?

So he won't respond here...you'll delete any posts on reddit...

Are people just supposed to twiddle their thumbs until jchan decides it's a good time for an update?

Is being politely persistent and trying to exhaust all other avenues of communication an option?

If that fails, yeah. Wait patiently. It's a group buy, it sucks that the new crowd around here seems to forget that. You have to wait. Don't buy into group buys if you don't understand that, ffs. Just wait for retail and buy it then.

This.  The definition and risks of GBs is being forgotten as people join for the shinys.

In general, I'd agree with both of you -- if we're still waiting on production then there's basically no point in hounding the group buy runner as in most cases they're just as clueless and bound to the same timeline as we, the consumers are. However in this case, we're talking about Solarized Dark's extra keys that supposedly arrived to jchan several weeks ago. Since then there has been no word from him.

It is not unreasonable to ask a vendor/group buy runner for updates on an item has been on-hand for weeks. No updates leaves everyone who hasn't received their set in a pretty awful place as it just seems like the vendor doesn't actually care for his customers at all. The fact of the matter is that poor communication skills has become a recurring theme with jchan (M65, MC Rebirth, etc) all the while spinning up new products that seem to immediately take precedence over the things he has already started.

I think most peoples' worries would be calmed with a simple, "hey guys, I'm sorry for once again dropping the ball with communication, here's what I plan to do moving forward, etc"

All of this would be avoided by just saying something.

Supposedly is the key word in that statement I'd think; we don't know that he's actually had them in possession.  That's no excuse, but I've seen it time and time again that people avoid confronting others with bad news afyer something has already gone wrong, hoping that the coming good news will be enough to offset it. I try to be persistent as pr0ximity said above, but not take it to the masses personally. But at the same time I also realize that others don't handle things in that same manner.

Got my tracking number too -- in a very unceremonious email :D
Looking forward to seeing them in person.

The other thing to keep in mind is that these tracking numbers we received are pre-shipment numbers. He has not actually shipped packages, just generated tracking. In the past, I've seen this as a way for group buy runners to extend their time even further by making it seem as if there's progress when there isn't actually anything happening. I hope that's not the case here, but temper expectations.

I'll ping the thread if/when my package is actually in transit.

That was already the case before this buy started, so it shouldn't come as any surprise in this buy. I bought in knowing full well how he operates, so I'm okay with letting his process run its course. To my knowledge people haven't been horribly scammed by him, he just takes his time.

You say it as though that's acceptable.

Keyclack is not just a single dude running group buys on Geekhack -- Keyclack is a registered LLC in the state of California. Would you hand over hundreds of dollars for something from a local retailer and then just write it off as "well that's just how they do business" when they never send you your item?

I think the answer is no. The answer should be no different for Keyclack. It's time to stop writing off this type of behavior because "that's how he operates" -- the only thing that comes of that is more FUD.

Not that I disagree that people accepting money in exchange for services should be more accountable and communicative, but this obsession with being an LLC making a difference is very silly.

Keyclack is, I'm sure, a pass-through disregarded entity LLC with a sole proprietor (Chan). This is purely a tax consideration, not a suggestion of customer interaction requirements. It basically gives Chan the ability to file self-employment taxes and has some other benefits (and negatives), but has no bearing on how he treats customers.

EVERYONE accepting money from people in exchange for goods SHOULD be forthright, honest and expedient regardless of their tax formation but the formation itself has no bearing on their responsibilities. 90% of the people running group buys here and elsewhere are ill-prepared for the task and have trouble.

The simple, sad truth is that you should not join ANY group buy if you don't have the stomach for this kind of thing, regardless of whether it's run by a single person, an LLC, a corporation or God himself.

There was someone on one of their Twitch streams that was praising a GB runner because they shipped 100% of their orders on time and had good communication throughout...

Something like that doesn't deserve praise. That should be the bare minimum and the expectation with GB's.

The community as a whole is far too lax when it comes to the slack most GB runners are given.

Yes, I'm aware that delays happen. I'm also aware that it takes 10 minutes tops to notify people through email, post on a forum and post something to reddit letting buyer's know there's a delay.

You don't tell people that their keycaps are going to show up in the next couple of days and then fail to communicate with your buyers for 3 weeks after they've arrived. That's just poor business practice and isn't something that people should  brush off so easily.

You're absolutely right. The truth of the matter is that it doesn't matter whether you're a "regular dude," an LLC, or a corporation. It takes no longer than a few minutes out of your day to update a thread with a few words about what's happening.
You all seem to put those who can complete this simple act on a pedestal while, people like Jchan, are given a pass because they're the expected and accepted average group buy runner.
Here's a simple truth for you. You should not RUN any group buys if you're incapable of updating those who participated in it every now and then.

Yes, I'm aware that delays happen. I'm also aware that it takes 10 minutes tops to notify people through email, post on a forum and post something to reddit letting buyer's know there's a delay.

This is the majority of people. Those who want Jchan's head are the vast minority. The majority wants a simple ****ing update.

I am going to preface this by saying I AM NOT calling jchan a scammer. But the same thing could have been said about Ivan right up until he scammed. I didnít join his Miami Nights buy because he was a scammer, when I joined ďTo my knowledge people haven't been horribly scammed by himď.

Like I already said tho, I really donít think thatís what is happening here, and I can totally just wait until heís ready. Iím also protected since I paid with Amex, so if a few more months pass and everyone else has theirs and mine is still MIA I can still just chargeback. But I donít expect to need to do that. He shipped muted fast, he sent my refund for senna, this would be a really odd time/thing to start scamming, especially when he is just starting his DSA hydro buy.

Also, just because you donít mind waiting in silence, doesnít some how make a complete lack of communication acceptable.

I don't think you're using FUD in the way that it is generally used, i.e. to spread Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt about some situation making the mobs restless.  That would be more on the side of assuming what the situation is, it seems.  Again, not saying that it's right no matter the explanation, but assuming that he had it without verification is FUD.

Not to pile on but I would love to see a postmortem some time about how we ended up with the colors we did, because I genuinely think it would help other future designers/GB runners when planning a set with GMK.

I know renders arenít always accurate but the difference between the renders and the end product is night and day, so Iím curious which part of the process needed to change, etc, to avoid this outcome. As someone who has considered attempting to design a GMK set recently, this result (and others) made me nervous.

You, like other "color experts" here, are just really dumb. I'm not saying the outcome is perfect, but I already explained the process and how we got here. The mistake is not choosing a specific Pantone code beforehand, because not all hex codes and RGB values can be produced in Pantone.

Second time I said this, god you guys are dumb.

Also the ****ing lighting, I can choose any keyset and compare photos and they can look very different from each other. Everybody's a ****ing expert online.

Not to pile on but I would love to see a postmortem some time about how we ended up with the colors we did, because I genuinely think it would help other future designers/GB runners when planning a set with GMK.

I know renders arenít always accurate but the difference between the renders and the end product is night and day, so Iím curious which part of the process needed to change, etc, to avoid this outcome. As someone who has considered attempting to design a GMK set recently, this result (and others) made me nervous.

You, like other "color experts" here, are just really dumb. I'm not saying the outcome is perfect, but I already explained the process and how we got here. The mistake is not choosing a specific Pantone code beforehand, because not all hex codes and RGB values can be produced in Pantone.

Second time I said this, god you guys are dumb.

Also the ****ing lighting, I can choose any keyset and compare photos and they can look very different from each other. Everybody's a ****ing expert online.

Man, when you rage you really rage.  :eek:

I'm so disappointed in this reply, I don't really know where to start. I try to stay as positive as possible in this community (and I think my post history will hopefully confirm that), but there are times like this where it's very hard to feel good about it given how unnecessarily rude and pointed this reply was. Are we really at the point where someone who pays hundreds of dollars for something you designed gets called "dumb" (twice) and a "****ing expert" when asking what happened in the process that led from one set of visuals to a completely different end-product?

People look up to your work, thesiscamper. Any time a new buy is started, people ask for renders from you. Hell, even in this buy itself, especially in the beginning, people continuously doubted the colors that GMK showed in their render and _everyone_ was quick to say "don't worry about that, look at thesiscamper's renders, they're always the best". (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90192.msg2448375#msg2448375, https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90192.msg2449513#msg2449513, https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90192.msg2448486#msg2448486) Maybe you don't want this responsibility (which I would completely understand), but that's the situation you're in as someone who designs lots of amazing stuff. You're looked at as a design leader around here.

I never claimed to be an expert. I'm far from it. That is, in fact, _why_ I asked how this result occurred because _I'm not an expert and I'm curious_.

As someone who I think _is_ an expert (you, thesiscamper), this is a toxic, harsh reply to what I did not think was unacceptable feedback/concern. I'm sorry you're annoyed at being asked by multiple people about the colors. And yes, back in March (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90192.msg2577772#msg2577772) you did post about the colors, but your post was, effectively, "We had to pick Pantone colors". That doesn't really explain how, _even in that post_, you continued to show your render which is nothing like the end product. Yes, renders are just thatórendersóbut I don't think it's out of line to be disappointed by the end result and be curious which step of the process could be improved for the next buy.

And, seriously, this whole "the lighting in that photo is to blame!" argument is quite well worn at this point. Many, many people have posted photos (including the person selling this set: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90192.msg2578595#msg2578595) and none look anywhere near the renders.

I'm sorry to have offended you with my questions. I'm actually a pretty smart person. I'm not a ****ing expert in this, but I'm certainly an expert in other areas. I definitely don't go around telling other people who aren't experts that they're dumb whenever they ask a question.

The mistake is not choosing a specific Pantone code beforehand, because not all hex codes and RGB values can be produced in Pantone.

Thank you for answering the question, though, amongst all the insults.

The whole thing was a ****show; take another dump on the pile to really seal in the smell. How dare gutsack, as a customer, to voice his opinion. To all the future payers: geekhack is not Amazon, do not leave negative reviews because you have absolutely no rights to voice your opinions even though you pay for the products.

 Thanks for the lesson.

That was literally my point.

This laughably run gb has been enough of a fiasco as a whole, but the (color) design process was also a failed production in itself, and I was amazed at the designers response that only added insult to injury. I used to respect thesiscamper, but that response is inexcusable.

Its unfortunate, this was a very appealing colorway. I guess we should know better by now when it comes to certain vendors, however.

Thing is, I genuinely wasn't trying to leave a negative review but ask how things ended up where they did. I've been part of GMK sets in the past where the color process was pretty lengthy and required lots of samples, in this buy it seemed like the color issues were all well after people had paid money, and I was genuinely curious how the hiccups in this buy's process and what could have been done differently to change the end result.

Truthfully, though, this community, on a whole, is extremely unforgiving of complaint about results. Any time someone is unhappy with how a buy turned out it's "don't join group buys if you care" or "it's just one guy" or "have patience they'll ship someday" or "if you don't like the result, don't buy from this person again" but there's no way for anyone to discuss their displeasure without it going toxic and south almost immediately. I shouldn't have even asked because part of me knew this would happen, but I had had good experiences with jchan before and I had never interacted with thesiscamper directly.

I didn't mean to explode the thread, sorry.

its not just group buy's the longer I am in the community The more toxic it has become/seems. Perhaps its something new or always been this way but between we can't hold anyone accountable to o that's a copy of XYZ. Which most the time is a copy of YZX but that gets left out.

You have every rights to voice your complaints if you pay for it. Just like any other consumer products, there are a review process where actual buyers voice their opinions, whether negative or positive. It's part of the growth process for both the manufacturers and the consumers. Also as consumers you are entitled to protection against scams or faulty products. Clearly most group buys are outside of that scope, the runners have to rely on participants' fund to produce products, hence the wait time. Having said that, beside the long wait, you still have every rights to be passionate and opinionated about your purchases. Don't let anyone take that away from you.

That has always been my principles. I have been around for 6 years but I rarely post because I only voice my opinions in projects that I am invested in. And when I do, I am very opinionated about it. E8-V1, Evil80, and Solarized Dark are some of my recent complaints. And you better believe I stand behind my complains 100%

Secondly, nobody is blind in this place; there are almost a 100 pictures with different lighting and post-process, and this set still derails so far from the original intention.

Finally, designer must have the ability to absorb critiques, that how you grow as an artist/designer/maker. You don't insult critique-givers. It doesnt take a film philosopher to recognize good films. It doesnt take a color theorist to say Solarized Dark is a ****show. Get off your high horse, learn how to filter criticisms, and definitely do not insult the people who funded your visions. Thesiscamper took me by surprise with the personal insults, I hope one day he'll grow up.

If you're gonna compare to the render, at least do it in similar-ish lighting. This potato pic is still a ways off from reality (alphas slightly too saturated, mods too dark) but it's the closest I've gotten it and I've seen:

(https://i.imgur.com/gB7zJgg.png)

This is an extremely un-photogenic set, like I have literally not seen a single picture anywhere that does them justice. I will agree it's a decent bit different from the renders, but not even close to what the pictures show.

IRL, the legends are clearly grey and not white like cameras seem to think, the alpha blue is clearly visible but not remotely bright, it's very calm and understated, ever so slightly greenish too as it should be (pic doesn't really get that), modifiers aren't clearly blue but the colour presents itself more as a tone, a cold off-black, almost iridescent, really cool imo. The TU2 accents are violently cyan, pure energy, and serve to contrast the rest of the set and make the gentle, subdued nature more clearly visible.

Hi Thesiscamper, I only lurk here normally but your comment compelled me to sign up to post in response. As a bit of context, I am a print & packaging designer who before my current role worked in colour proofing across paper and plastics (think matching brand colours to physical shampoo bottles, website palettes to printed promotional media, that kind of thing) so I'd definitely put myself firmly in the "color expert" category. I am also an owner of the Solarized Dark set.

I will outline that I do in fact like the keyset, the colours work well together in person and although they vary drastically in different lighting, this is to absolutely be expected. I have no problem with the set itself in isolation, but it certainly isn't what I originally put money forward for and both the process outlined in this thread and your response above are very worrying from a professional and consumer perspective. None of my message is intended as disrespect or a dig, but as someone who understands the quandaries of dealing with products moving from a digital realm to the real world I'm just genuinely interested to find out your thought process.

I'd be curious to hear your answers if you'd be so kind as to humour my following questions:

This is indeed the closest photo I've seen to the renders, but perhaps it highlights the case that in this render pass, the lighting was completely unrealistic unless you sit in pitch-darkness all day and night at your desk (I, personally, don't). But I will agree this looks closer. In the future, it certainly falls on me to be more critical of renders and lighting conditions and to consider the fact that my office is well-lit most of the day so if it looks too dark in renders it will look wrong in real life for me. Thanks.

If you're waiting for a replacement keycap, you will get the tracking today after I finalize the list. You'll get tracking via email on file. If you've changed addresses since then, please notify support@keyclack.com . I will be holding the replacement keycap shipments for a day before dropping them off at USPS.

Hey jchan,

Have a quick question. I already received my base kit and colored modifiers with the first batch of shipments. Just wondering if I'll receive separate tracking for the stepped caps and stepped ctrl caps.

I saw that you're still working on tracking for 'replacement keycaps'. I didn't know if the stepped caps fell into that category.

Thank you!

--

If you're waiting for a replacement keycap, you will get the tracking today after I finalize the list. You'll get tracking via email on file. If you've changed addresses since then, please notify support@keyclack.com . I will be holding the replacement keycap shipments for a day before dropping them off at USPS.

--

This GB should be marked to be completed in 2-3 days.

Thanks jchan, looking forward to seeing these in person

Finally, designer must have the ability to absorb critiques, that how you grow as an artist/designer/maker. You don't insult critique-givers. It doesnt take a film philosopher to recognize good films. It doesnt take a color theorist to say Solarized Dark is a ****show. Get off your high horse, learn how to filter criticisms, and definitely do not insult the people who funded your visions. Thesiscamper took me by surprise with the personal insults, I hope one day he'll grow up.

Everyone has a breaking point.  I hope if you ever reach it on any project, people treat you with more grace.

That's fine and all, but I've seen thesis break on more than one occasion. One of them was on me!

FTFY  ;)  :thumb:

Being serious, that's unfortunate.  But I don't think that obviates my statement in any fashion.  :thumb:

Well, I think it's pretty rude of him to say what he did. I've seen plenty of people at breaking points rage online and to me it's never an excuse to call people dumb, even if you feel you are more experienced in a profession.

Did I ever say it wasn't?  That's not what my statement said, nor meant.  I just think it's better not to descend into the muck and wade it out with the person.  But to try to afford a little grace, and let it go.  There are enough tensions in the thread than to go adding to them, no matter how justified you may be or feel that you are.  That's just my take, admittedly, but no less valid for that.

it sounded to me like you were justifying thesis' post considering the statements made by people regarding the colors and his reaction toward them.

"Everyone has a breaking point" = thesis had a breaking point by reading these comments and lashed out.
"I hope if you ever reach it on any project" = someone else in the same shoes as thesis reading comments about work they've done.
"people treat you with more grace." = people ought to understand the position thesis is in and offer more grace (i.e., not be offended by his remarks), and similarly ought if you were in the same position.

Hey jchan,

Have a quick question. I already received my base kit and colored modifiers with the first batch of shipments. Just wondering if I'll receive separate tracking for the stepped caps and stepped ctrl caps.

I saw that you're still working on tracking for 'replacement keycaps'. I didn't know if the stepped caps fell into that category.

Thank you!

For those trackings, I'm sending them via email. They are in bubble mailers, but have a good amount of bubble wrap to protect them from damage.

For the color debate, I don't care as long as the set looks good.
Deviations and surprises happen despite best effort, sorta part of life here.

For those who got slammed for making legit complaints, I feel for you. Popos often go after wrong people to keep order.

I believe that is actually an LZ ST

Simply by popping out both the original stabilizer assembly and replacing it with ones from the Novatouch! The original 6u stabilizer wire is retained. Wasn't sure it was even going to work until it was put back together since I don't think anyone else has tried this.

  that's the KeyClack base page, not particular to Solarized Dark. Could just be a site revamp moving to Shopify.
