In for base, for me the set of the year.

Even nicer then 2048 torii ;)


Any chance for more colorful R1 dots if enough sets are sold?


Again, thanks for this perfect set.

I said it before, but I still wish the ISO Enter had a vertical bar or something instead of a dot...

Still, really looking forward to this!

This is brilliant! A bit surprised there isn't a novelty option for some barbarous squares or triangles.

I already answered the question, when I made tests it just looked weird because of the shape ok the keycap.
The vertical 2Us works well better on a numpad because it's not staggered tho.
Moreover, on a layout without numpad, having just one keycap with a vertical legend like that looked really off…

... and I wish the single color kits had been a thing.

I didn't want to offer the monochrome kit due to MOQ issues.
But tbh, I wasn't expecting such a hype the first days and thought that people would not buy base kit + monochrome kit + nomad kit or a rama keycap.
That's why I decided to remove this kit.

Yeah, I know, that's why I said "still"! I trust you. I've already ordered my kit so no worries.

Yes it’s not your GB, and considering how much people love this set the way it is, I think we can all agree that Biip made the right decisions.
He has a lot of experiences in doing GB, you don’t.

If you’re not happy with his choices it’s alright, even if the huge majority approve them.
But respect his decisions at least, we got your POV no need to develop it again.

Don't chastise me for "misrespecting" biip's choices, given that I'm not doing that (also note that "we all agree" and "the huge majority approves" don't mean the same thing).

FTR, I was pointing out that I was talking about a different thing that what Blip responded to (look up "single color kits" and "monochrome kit" in the IC thread - those are NOT the same thing).

Can't blame people for getting defensive when your previous post was so condescending. Probably not the best way to go about having your opinions be heard, but ain't my fight.

I explained why I kept the dot for the ISO Enter keycap and why I removed the monochrome kit.

Not a problem. I just wanted to make sure the explanation for one removal (monochrome kit) wasn't mistaken for the other (single color kits).

Perhaps the latter might be considered for an R2, which I easily see being asked for the very next day after the GB has ended. :D

@biip: Back on the IC thread ilpsxnus asked an interesting question that was never answered:
Quote from: ilpsxnus
I've just joined the GB for a base kit but would like to know if the purple and orange R4 1.5 keycaps that appear in the renders will be made available as a separate add-on kit (these aren't in any of the kits).
This is a good question, as some layouts need 3 1.5u keys. Can you please provide an answer?

Those were a mistake :(
I should have edit the renders tho... Sorry.
Also, I wasn't aware that some layouts would need more than 4 R4 1.5u keys...

Only drop normally has price breaks - with other gbs usually extra caps are added (e.g. With bento or metropolis)

this.
Since we have very small margins with the vendors (in order to have a nice retail price) we won't be able to do that on 500MOQ tho.

150 MOQ is a total for all kits combined - not each kit has to hit 150 individually for that particular kit to be made?

150 was the MOQ for just the Ergo. It’s 250 for the base.

Maybe I am being dense but don't understand what "We are at 148 with extras. So nothing to worry about" means then - latest count I saw was 70 for the Ergo with 80 more kits needed to make it to MOQ - seems like a long way to go (or do Ergo kits sell better on GH than MD where they always seem to lag behind).

Extras means what the vendors have committed to buy. So with the total that customers have purchased, plus extras, we are at 148. Which means we definitely are hitting MOQ.

Since the GB is going so well, do you think it'd be possible to add a 6u spacebar (and maybe another extra key or two) to the base kit once 500 is hit?

Is the base color custom? You may be able to buy a matching one separately if not.
