Quick update regarding my mini GB:

For the people asking me about more compatibility: No, sorry. This add-on kit was only meant as a means to get some keycaps made that might not happen otherwise.
I'll run another add-on set next year and if there's enough interested for a keycap I'm cool with buying up any necessary amount for MOQ again so you can make suggestion there.

Instead of keeping the form open indefinitely as it was stated when the form was first posted, I'll be closing it a week after WoB Hiragana has ended.
The current numbers are already double of what I expected.
I'll open the form again in January for anyone who missed it.

Yes, I will definitely have extras for sale after the GB ships out!

Will there be extras for micons as well?

Yes there will be.

@dvorcol, why is your graph BoW, when this is about WoB? This seems very wrong to me  :D
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, stepped control users, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (2 Timothy 1:5)

Great question.  This was something I struggled with.  The bars are supposed to resemble the keycaps, but black bars on a black background is illegible:

And while a black-background history graph makes perfect sense, it doesn't pair well with a white-background bar graph:

But you have inspired me to take another look.  I think this is an improvement:

Deskpads are now live for preorder!

Will the deskpad be available through proxies or only at NovelKeys?

Also this is great deskpad size (700x300mm) that fits a smaller desk, I hope this size can be made as an option for future GBs aswell!

Mizu ran in May and will ship in December, oblivion well behind and git fix is needed. Even though it’s stock colors I suspect this ones gonna be a month late. Rama moon might be here earlier though...

Given the glut of GMK keycaps I just assume everything is 2 months off now. Handarbeit is stock colors (admittedly 10 of them) and that got pushed back nearly 2 months. I think im 20 GMK sets in and no missed keys yet so I'd rather wait for good QC than play catch up tracking down missing keys or ones with errors.

Due to the delay it won't.
I'm working on opening up a new form hopefully soon(likely February) but I'm busy with other things at the moment and I'm waiting to hear back from something else first.

There will be an announcement of the exact time when the new form goes up because I have already received a few PMs regarding the R5 keys.
It will be FCFS because I only bought the keycaps up from the people who never paid their invoice so there's only ~20 of either R5 keycaps available IIRC, plenty of R1 1u Delete keys though.

I don't expect them to sell out immediately but I suggest keeping an eye on it just to be sure  ;)

For anyone who missed out on the add-on kit keycaps; The same form will be open again next Sunday, February 23 at 15:00 CET(GMT+1).

The following is still available:
  • 40x R1 1u Delete icon key
  • 20x R5 1.5u Meta/Command icon key + R5 1.5u Alt icon key
If you want a full bottom row you need to purchase the R5 set twice because the pair only contains one of each.

The price has slightly increased and the form stays open for a week.
Shipping is around the same time as WoB Hiragana.

This has been shipped out. However, shipments are very slow right now. We estimate middle of April for us to receive and start shipping.
