IMO the biggest frustration from this is that the caps for probably about half of people's orders are at NK, ready to be shipped, but being delayed further by something that doesn't affect their orders at all, while other vendors for this set haven't had the same issue and have been shipping out to people already. By the time the RAMA caps arrive to NK and things start shipping out, it will already be almost a month of an extra delay with the caps being in stock, just held up by a system that seems to only be affecting NK.

Ditto, it's the comparison with other vendors that gives negative appearance.
My ask to NK and Mike is: don't change the current system since it sounds like it might cause other issues.  But consider doing things differently for future.  Pls don't give curt NO unless you can explain the difference with other vendors.

Not all vendors have shipped out, and I might be mistaken, but I think Daily Clack is the only vendor that has shipped out. We all use different methods for accepting and fulfilling orders. There is not a set standard that every vendor uses. A lot of us use Shopify, but NovelKeys only uses Shopify to accept orders - not to fulfill them.

There are mainly two reasons that we aren't able to change this system. One is how we process orders. Everything in the same product page needs to be processed together. I keep deskpads separate for this very reason. I know that deskpads will always arrive earlier than the keycaps. The second reason is the volume. I dont want to get into specifics of other vendors numbers, but NA sales are vastly greater than EU, Australia, and Asia sales combined.

The only way this will be able to be changed in the future is if I separate RAMA keycaps from future GB's. I do not have any plans on doing that. This is a one off delay that we have had from RAMA. Our order was place with RAMA at the same time of the keycaps. I am not sure of the exact details why it has had a delay, but I do know that this is a special coated keycaps, and then the corona virus hit.

No complaints for now.  Agree the corona virus is unexpected.

Note Chinese PMI just fell to record low.  This and other indicators mean this type of disruptions may happen again.  Just heads up.

Can you please post extras tomorrow? This wait is killing me. You guys have had the caps for like a month now. Iíve had a keyboard built with no keycaps just waiting for this set. Been typing on naked switches. Please save my fingers from this torture.

Caps look amazing! The rama artisan looks nice too, but is decidedly blue with purple edges and not purple all over.

Is there any chance of a round 2? I had no idea the alphas would pop so much in person, and there is basically zero way to get these aftermarket without paying $300+. I feel like there would be a demand for another gb

Relax. I'm sure there's a good reason they haven't been posted yet with everything that's going on. Maybe he's trying to get ready for a potential shutdown in his area, since restaurants and bars have just closed in WV.

Woo scored based and 40's kits. Been up for about 30 minutes and Hirigana, 40s and spacebars already sold out but base still there as are the really cool novelties. So irritated I passed on the GB, non-GB pricing means I didn't grab novelties lol. Thanks for posting the extras NK, love you guys

I had no intention of getting VW; however, after receiving the RAMA cap in the mail, it was cool enough that I felt obliged to buy the basekit.

I had the same experience. For the initial GB, I only bought RAMA cap since it looked interesting in the renders. Once it arrived, it was even better than renders so figured I gotta get the base kit as well and snatched one extra  :)
