That's a great tkl design you got there. I'm definitely interested if the price isn't past 400.

if logo on the upper right corner is removed, that would be awesome.
I hope there will be a option for that.

Gasket only on one side?

The plate is designed to be mounted to the bottom (like Canoe) with gaskets in between the plate and the bottom. So in theory another top gasket will not affect the typing feel.
That said, Potter and demo said double-sided gaskets can be done easily if that is preferred by the community.

Depends on what you think of as nonsense: several GBs lately have been open for a minute or two before hitting max quantity. FCFS prioritizes fast typists with fast internet with free time in a convenient time zone, and Iím sure plenty of folks consider that prioritization to be nonsense.

I think it would be cool if there where an option to have a light pipe for the badge.

What colors options will there be? I might possibly get this in black and pair it with Laser.

Black should definitely be an option! There will be a few colorways available I believe. I will let Demo comment on this

Plenty of folks would also consider getting a medal, for winning a competition, nonsense. Instead of punishing those who did well, these "folks" should focus on making sure that they can make it next time. We can't all be winners.

What if I told you that many of the limited availability items are sold before the webstore opens, or are snapped up by bots (which operate faster than you can do by hand...)

Unless the GB runner explicitly says that a specific behavior isn't allowed, everything is fair game.

Technically it's fair game for scalpers who use bots to sell out concert tickets to flip them too... doesn't make it much fun to be a fan of something...

  • You're assuming that I've got some kind of beef about not getting into a FCFS GB, which is absolutely not the case; I'm pretty new to this community and nothing has been quite what I wanted, so I've never even tried to get into a FCFS GB (or a raffle for that matter)
  • I literally only stated what each of those methods prioritized and gestured at the fact other members of this community feel differently from you about those methods
  • The literal concept of a limited sale already asserts your claim of "We can't all be winners" regardless of how that sale is conducted. Your statement was not in any way related to the concept that was presented
  • You can't "do well" in a raffle; that's sort of the entire point. Therefore, you can't be punished for doing well

I never even tried to argue that I personally prefer raffles to FCFS; I live in a pretty decent timezone for most of this stuff, so I have the privilege to not be particularly affected by these things. It sounds like you're in a similar boat, whether that is due to the timezone in which you live or the way you've structured your life; that's pretty great for you, and I'm glad you can get the boards you want to get! Other folks don't necessarily have the privileges we have, but I don't think their lack of those privileges means they shouldn't get the nice things we can get. I think looking out for folks who have less privilege than yourself and listening to them when they feel like things are conducted in a way that is unfair to them is an important aspect of building and maintaining any community.

If the justification for running a raffle is that most people feel outlied than you'd be indeed punishing the ones that were "doing well", on the FCFS model, by being faster or smarter by using bots.

I'm in a horrible timezone for most FCFS. They usually go live between 1am and 6am for me.

Neither do I. But complaining and blaming the model instead of adjusting yourself is recipe for endless frustration and long GH rants. Neither will get them pretty boards.

This is where we disagree. Fairness has nothing to do with it. Everyone has their own personal definition of fairness and it's a constant struggle that will never end. So instead of trying to reach this unachievable goal we should make sure that GB runners can do better at providing more boards then more people can have pretty boards on their desks.

FCFS limited GB
FCFS  doesn't bother me but the real question is what is meant by "limited". If you mean limited like say other GB that consist of 20keebs, where you have stuff selling out in less than 30 secs?

However if you mean limited GB like say 100-150 keebs, than thats is fine; as that would give those who want to get the board to actually have more than a few secs to try and get them.

Any Idea on how man they are planning on?

Curious as well! alps + gasket mount seems to be a great combo
