I love the innovation you guys are pushing with the new No1 designs.

One thing that would I think really help future keyboard hobbyists would be maintaining some kind of "revision log" of what changed between versions of each of your boards. E.g. things like:

Quote
No. 1 60/65 - switched to full isolation gasket, original No. 1 TKL only had gasket material under the plate and not above
No. 1 Rev 1 - reduced typing angle from 9 to 8 degrees
No. 1 Rev 1 60/65 - added flex cuts around plate edges

It can be very very very hard to find information like this about older custom keyboards. Going forward, it would be great in general to have to rely less on collective community memory and/or posts buried on page 6 of a Geekhack thread, and more on authoritative sources of information. Keycult is in a position to establish this kind of thing as normal precedent.

Obviously if you don't want to publicize this kind of information that's your prerogative - but it seems fitting with your so-far transparent and community-oriented approach, and it won't go unappreciated.

Edit: keeping records of "what colors/options were available and for what price" would also be helpful.

That's a great suggestion and one that I've been thinking about doing. As for all colors of boards and what was available, we do have the information available through our releases page which lists all our past releases: https://keycult.io/collections
