I was looking at the default layout and noticed you have a tap dance function on the caps lock key. How does that work? I'm trying to activate caps lock with double tap but only activates LCTRL. I'm also doing this with tweezers and a keyboard tester, so I assume I might actually have to solder the switch first for it to work?

Based on the layout it looks like there are 2 KC_LCTLs and the TD_SCAPS is on the left shift, not the actual tab/caps lock that is labeled. Not sure if I'm reading it properly at this point as I don't have the Gothic70 in front of me. If you double tap shift do you get caps locks?

This is what I gather is the actual layout that gets build.

Double tapping left shift should activate caps, and yeah, it's hard to do with tweezers, but pretty easy with a switch installed. The key left of A is control in the default keymap.

Well, when your entire household is sick on New Years Eve, you build a keyboard I guess.

Very fun build! Everything went together smoothly.  Slight moment of panic when a column stopped responding and I thought I lifted an entire row of pads, until I realized that the back of the led strip was conductive and shorting it (first time adding a strip myself), but once that was sorted all was well. 

PCB is beautiful and I kind of fed bad hiding it behind POM, but I had to try the POM and Im happy I did - it sounds fantastic! 

Wonderful group buy experience.  Looking forward to learning more of the features of QMK, as before last night, I had only ever used the configurator to compile firmware.

Great build! I am planning on using 9009 as well. I ordered the matte black version and it is still on it's way. Got to agree the GB experience is very smooth, thanks @worldspawn!

Cover the ends with electrical or kapton tape or place a square on the PCB under the strip ends.

The order is 1234657, gravity and friction keep the PCB down in its place, it will lift up when switching keycaps, but you just push it back down.  This is one of the uses for the plate foam, it takes up that gap space.  Just FYI, this is typical of acrylic layer cases.

So just to confirm, if we want to use the plate foam, it would go in between 4 and 6 correct? I just want to make sure I'm using everything in the intended order!

Are only 7 LEDs supported on the RGB strip header? I can't get more than that number to light. Is that changeable or do I just need to trim the strip down to 7?

Does pre-shipment mean you only printed the shipping label? It's been stuck on that status for a few days now. Starting to wonder if USPS already messed with my package. Wanted to check here before asking there.

Finished mine too with 15 underglow LED and put some GMK WoB on it. Had some problems with the POM plate where it pressed down on the stabilizer wires. Filed off a bit from the place and didn't push the switches not all the way in. Now everything is perfect.

Thanks worldspawn for such a great group buy.  :thumb:

Can someone help me troubleshoot why my 6-Y-H-N row is not registering?

This definitely sounds like an issue with the MCU (at least from my experience). I had a similar issue on a different build where one of the rows on my PCB was not firing (I think it was F8-0-P-:). I'll detail the steps I took to fix the issue (see below), although it's a bit risky and I'd try to see if you can source a new PCB if possible.

Basically, it seems like there is a spotty connection from the 6-Y-H-N column to the MCU. In order to fix it, you have to identify the pin on the MCU that corresponds to that column. I forget which MCU is used on the Gotchic70 (maybe ATmega32a?). If so, Google "atmega32a pin out" to find an image with a list of the pinouts for the MCU.

Once you've identified which pin corresponds to the 6-Y-H-N column (unfortunately, I'm not at all well-versed in these things, so someone else might be able to help you with that), you need to re-flow some solder to that exact pin. Your best bet is probably to use a flux pen to apply some flux to solder.

I should warn you to be very careful when you solder the pin, and to only solder the exact pin you need. From my personal experience on a different build: I ended up accidentally soldering a few pins together on the MCU (used soldering wire instead of flux, don't do this), which caused half the columns on my PCB to stop firing. Wasn't able to remove/revert my soldering mistake = PCB ded.

Also, I think Nathan encountered the same issue during one of his builds. You can see what he does to troubleshoot the issue here (starts fix at around 2:11:50):

Not sure how helpful this is but good luck!

For those with row issues, do you have an LED strip on the bottom? It may be shorting on some of the pins if you aren't putting anything between the strip and the pcb.

Also interested in this question :)

I built mine with 7305s, but I don't recommend it. It caused more of a headache than I thought. For the most part the keeb works, but occasionally it'll short on a column and spam it. I fixed this by cleaning the pins, using tape to remove any dust or particles, and then placing tape over the pins. Also, my pcb has a slight bend to it.  The mill max sockets and plate aren't strong enough to keep the switches in place. Occasionally switches fall out on their own and I have to press them back in.  I've done several keebs with 7305s and have never had a problem. Unfortunately this one thought otherwise :(

I've had good luck with ALITOVE LEDs on Amazon so I bought this strip: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RBVKLPX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As others have mentioned, I tried a strip of LEDs that didn't have tape on the bottom and I ended up shorting some of my keys as well. If you get a strip like the above that has the tape backing built in, you'll have a better time but watch out for switch legs poking through potentially. If you do have an LED strip, try removing it and see if that fixes your switch column issues.

7 isn't enough, so here's 16 xD

What leds are those? Built mine without knowing leds weren't already on it... Never messed with lighting before, but might as well take advantage of the frosted underside.

how accurate is the "Your order is scheduled to ship by Feb 10, 2020. Check back then for updates." on etsy?

I ordered some ws2812b LED strips from Taobao and soldered them onto the back of the pcb!

Not accurate, the way etsy works there's a maximum ship time, so it's not going to jive with a GB schedule and can't be changed.  Target ship date for Round 2 and gothic50s is mid march to early april, a bit longer than round 1 due to chinese new year delaying production.
I can make acrylic laser cut cases/plates PM for info
