You aren't getting them for a while since everything is on a standstill in China due to the coronavirus

There's at least a further 2 week shipping delay since the factories are still closed by a mandate from the Chinese government.

It's not like I regret it deeply though, KBDFans was much cheaper for me and I can obviously wait a bit longer to ensure people's well-being.

Can't we replace KBDfans with another proxy?
I regret buying it from KBDfans.
There is a TXKeyboard in South Korea.

It has come to my attention that GMK WoB/BoW icon extension kit unfortunately also suffers from legend inconsistencies and issues. Some lines of the legends could be wonky, as in lines aren't straight or the cap seems like the first shot fell short at places. There are also thickness inconsistencies. So far I haven't noticed any alignment issues, like with wavez.

Please post your feedback here in the thread in detail (images, circle the issues if you can) and I'll do the work behind the scenes.

Also, it is important that you reach out to your vendor with the feedback.

Thank you, and sorry. I'm looking into it!

Looks like GMK's quality is dropping. Here's a couple of pictures illustrating some of the issues, compared to icon mods from GMK Burgundy R2 (bottom).

My caps seem to have identical errors as the ones pictured by vtachkov, WoB and BoW alike.

Received my replacement Oblivion "Hello, World!" ANSI enter keycap from Drop today, had to complain to my Wavez proxy about the crooked esc, and now this.

Will we be required to complain to our proxy to be eligible for a replacement in this case as well?

I understand that it is inconvenient and really sucks for all parties involved, but  going through the vendor which sold the product is the best way to move forwards. It is not only for a replacement, but also awareness. If every single kit is affected then there might be a solution where everyone who ordered gets a replacement even if they didn't complain, but we need feedback and making gmk aware through the vendors which placed the orders. I hope you understand, but I do agree that it's a ****ty situation for everyone :/

Every vendor has extras and will release them, but as for timing, it is up to the vendors. :)

My set has the same issues. Sorry for the bad quality images, but you get the idea.

Took a few quick macros. Two of the Shifts and the Enters seem to be the ones that are sub-par. The white Shifts were out of focus and noticed this only when viewing the picture on the PC but they are basically the same as the black ones.

Confirming the same with all my kits, both BoW and WoB:






R3 Enter (uneven horizontal line)
R4 1.75 Shift (uneven and inconsistent throughout, especially the lower right)
R4 1.25 Shift (uneven and inconsistent throughout, especially the lower right)

What's the issue with the numpad 'Enter'?

The numpad Enter seemed a little bit thinner in the middle, but yes, the ones you mentioned are the worst offenders.

Right, very so slightly.
