I'm sure a part of the reason for naming it Modern Dolch Light was also to bank off the name recognition?

I can confirm that this is absolutely not the case, that thought didn't cross our minds lol. We didn't figure people would care as much about the name as they do  :)

"ah no it was just a coincidence we swear"

embarassing marketing grab

Whose alt is this? lol  :))

easy to dismiss as an alt rather than confront the facts

you would think after the man in the high castle disaster dixie would put more thought into his interest checks instead of coming off strictly as an opportunistic marketer

Great looking set, but anyone countering that this isn't a replica of Muted with slight shading difference is ****ing delusional lmfao.

Wasn't picking sides, just laughing abt that being your 1st post. But yeah, I personally can't see a difference between this and muted, so  :blank:

I honestly don't understand why there's so much drama regarding the naming. janglad already explained why it's named Modern Dolch Light and Dixie posted a render visually depicting how Modern Dolch Light is derived from Modern Dolch. That's more than enough justification.

Re-naming to Muted R2 makes no sense since the original runner of Muted is no longer actively involved in the community as far as I'm aware, and has already turned down others who have approached him to try to re-run Muted.

It's clear that concerns regarding the naming have been voiced and received without change. If you still have such a big problem with the naming, protest with your wallet and just don't buy the set.

Y'all arguing about Modern Dolch, Muted, 9009, but in reality this is just a rip off of GMK Paperwork without the additional highlighter novelties.



Paperwork is more dolch than Modo Light

Thank you for the Jane V2 CE Render with "Alternate" kit :D

Very minor suggestion: add a matching "Alternate" colored spacebar.

Love the kits. Leaves no keys out.

I never said anything about who uses it.  I just said Paperwork (which already exists) is closer to what OP is trying to accomplish more than anything.

These big vendor GMK ICs are getting so perfected and machined to the point where it doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for suggestions/actual beneficial changes.
So we end up having multiple pages of people either saying they are going to buy it, or cling onto the one thing that feels wrong about the set, in this case being the name lmao

Yes - R3/R4 PgUp/PgDn in base. I guess if those two keys push the base into a different price bracket I get it. This set is going to sell over 1k+ though so it would be nice if there were a few keys added in, like with what happened to Metro/Bento.

you would think after the man in the high castle disaster dixie would put more thought into his interest checks instead of coming off strictly as an opportunistic marketer

Marketing:
Quote
noun: marketing

    the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising.

There's a word for non-opportunistic marketers: unemployed.

While my first thought was "hey this is like muted", my second thought was "I like it." As far as the name - I can see this as a photo-negative of MoDo. I can see how MoDo inspired it, and I can see how they tried to be subtly different than Muted.

I just find it ignorant and quarrelsome to call someone out for "opportunistic marketing" on a forum devoted to "Interest" checks - the entire IDEA of this forum is to see if the OPPORTUNITY to run something exists.

would you also care to explain to me the differences this set has compared to GMK 9009
everything

and also look man. If I don't like something and got nothing nice to say, I switch tab and keep it to myself. Maybe that's something to consider...

Just let fan bois be fan bois.
My apologies for trying to continue a friendly conversation and stick to the topic of the thread. However, your answer does not help clarify my confusion. I never once stated that I disliked this set, in fact, I very much like it. I would most definitely participate in this if I did not currently own a similar set. Perhaps if enough interest was generated to influence some minor design changes, I would be willing to purchase myself a set. I was unaware that users are not allowed to participate in the conversation of interest checks even if there is a high probability of not joining the group buy. Are we not allowed to encourage changes in the design?

I think a lot of this could be avoided if side by side comparison's to other sets were included initially. Let the set and it's colors stand on their own merit. Please compare it to 9009, Muted, Paperwork and Dolch itself directly.

Man, what is your deal?  We get it, you hate the set.  Yes, it’s obviously not for you, but I was comparing COLOR to MoDo Light, not who uses the damn thing.

And your whole “99% of the enthusiast market” is ignorant and lazy.  Get off Evan’s nuts, he’s not even in the hobby anymore.
