If you have to look down at the Alt Gr key to know what key you're hitting, how are you going to know what key the alt is supposed to be tied to?

I don't think that's the point he was making. He's saying Alt and Alt Gr end up having the same legends, yet they do different things.

And you completely missed my point, too. It makes no difference if the key is marked Alt or Alt gr. If you need to look at the cap to know what it's supposed to do, wouldn't you need to look at the rest of the caps to know what they're doing, too?

What does that have to do with anything? By that logic you could have Ctrl on Alt and Backspace on Tab. It's about the aesthetic. No, I don't need to look at the caps. But unless it's a kit filled with novelties I'd like my A key to say A and not X.

You guys... are you really trying that hard to miss my point? Alt is just two letters away from Alt Gr yet is a completely different key - so putting Alt on Alt Gr just feels wrong. It's so close but yet wildly incorrect. I'd much prefer a blank key or like "blah". Yeah, I'm a bit anal about it - so what... As I said, something completely different would have been better.

Like lol what, "there are no tertiary legends".. ok... how does that change anything? That doesn't magically turn the Alt Gr key into Alt. You still.. ah I give up.


Really the attitude here... now I know... Was expecting like "oh I didn't think about that" instead of this faux elitist condescending attitude. Really surprised by Oblotzky :(

I guess passing on this keyset may be the best solution for you.

Could you please hold this GB off until Fall 2019? With SA Laser going on now and GMK Oblivion coming up soon, everyone's wallet is really taking a hit.

Legends were reportedly often crooked, mis-aligned, and/or highly feathered on the first run of /dev/tty MT3 caps because the MT3 shape was difficult to dye sublimate on. Any word on if this has been resolved?

My understanding is that those issues were corrected in the second round of /dev/tty.  A third round of MT3 /dev/tty with weird kit options was listed on Drop today.  By the time they produce MT3 Serika, that should be their fourth round of dyseubbed MT3.  If you weren't aware of the second round of /dev/tty, you might want to take a look at the feedback (and pictures posted) for that round and see what you think.  I purchased most of my /dev/tty sets from the second round, but even the first round sets I picked up in a keycap recap are fine (quality was very inconsistent in the first round-- the sets I bought weren't the notorious failures).

Thanks it does! I was having trouble visualizing the difference between the creamy color of the alphas and more stark white of the boards being made. I appreciate it. I think it looks nice, especially the contrast between the white and yellow.

Got a second round of yellows that we made just to make sure we were as close as we can get given that we are working with PBT.

I prefer much more the first than the second round, so no point on sharing them.

Here are the colors we'll go with

I wish the legends on the new proposed ergo kit were spicier. I was hoping more for like an assortment of Zambumon triangles/squares/circles/geometries.
