Group Buy Entry


More
One per person, no exceptions.


Raffle Google Form Link - 25 Slots

There will be two, 3-minute windows to enter the raffle at the above link. Both of these windows are to enter the same raffle, if you entered through one window there is no need to enter through the other as it uses the same form.

To lessen the chances of people double dipping, I have requested that people be logged into their google account to fill out this form.
please ensure that you are logged into your google account before attempting this form.


Window 1: Saturday, December 21 at 11a.m. EDT

Window 2: Saturday, December 21 at 6p.m. EDT


I will be using the time of New York found on this clock.

Raffle will be drawn after first come, first serve slots have been filled. Should you acquire a slot via FCFS and be drawn in the raffle, you will only be considered for one slot.


First Come, First Serve Google Form Link - 20 Slots

For first come, first serve entries there will be 20 slots.

Opens: Saturday, December 21 at 7p.m. EDT

For this one as well, I will be using the time of New York found on this clock.

Note: For the sake of fairness to all buyers, expect to have to fill out every field. This way, those who do and don't want extra components are required to do just as much reading and clicking. POM Plate Color selection order will be the same as that in the picture.

Auction - 5 slots

This will be conducted after all other slots have been delivered.


How it's gonna all go down...
steps will be crossed off of and added to this list.

FCFS Slots will be filled.
Raffle slots will be drawn after FCFS slots are filled, repeated winners will be skipped and the next drawn name will acquire that slot.
Invoices will be sent out throughout Sunday, Dec 22.
All invoices are to be paid by 11:59pm EDT Monday, Dec 23. Unpaid orders will move on down the list.
Unpaid FCFS orders will be taken from the waitlist of FCFS, Unpaid Raffle orders will be re-raffled.
Order will be placed with factory.

Material order will be placed but production will begin after Chinese New Year.
Orders received, QC'd, Packaged
Shipping invoices will be sent out.
Shipment ETA: April 2020.
...
...
5 Auction slots (1 of each color?) will be conducted after all other slots have been delivered.


Frequently Asked Questions:

Why so few slots?
This is my first time running a group buy and I plan on handling all parts of the operation from front to back. Trying not to get ahead of myself.

Will there be another round?
As of current, there is plan for another round after this one handling larger numbers. Likely with vendors.

Absolute hype. I've been following this lovely li'l board for months. Excited/nervous for tomorrow! (praying to the RNG gods as I'm not going to be able to make FCFS as it'll be midnight in the UK)

One per person, no exceptions.

Just to clarify. For the RAFFLE, can I fill the form once for each window or only either 1 or 2?
Can I also fill out the FCFS form if I entered for the raffle?

For the raffle, both windows are entries into the same raffle using the same form. It's simply 2 windows so that if someone happens to be busy and unavailable for 1 they can catch the other.

Raffle will be drawn after FCFS, should you have already won the FCFS and your name be drawn in the raffle, you will be skipped as you can not obtain 2 slots.

I have added clarity to the post, thanks for your comment.

Oof, if this had better timing I'd be all over this. Love the design & look of the board! Also think this is something I'd use much more than my ortho 40s. Unfortunately I am tapped out with the holidays, so GL with the GB OP, GL to all who are entering, & fingers crossed for a Rd.2 not too far down the road!

Damn, did something happen with the form? I was watching that clock like a hawk... saw the form open exactly on the dot, filled it in as fast as possible, but the submit button sent me to the "Form is closed" page...   Did something glitch or did it really close that fast?

There should be some extras being made for an auction iirc. And, the other thing that I think I remember was that colors for r2 would be done through polling, so if we vote for the plum in r2, that could get made.

There will most likely be 1 of each color available after the group buy has delivered. I cannot say whether that color will be available again as it is a custom color and I think that it would be more appropriate to offer other colors for the next intended round of this board. Right now thinking Rose, Green, Grey, and Dark Blue while keeping the E-White option.

I'm not comfortable mentioning any dates. Probably wont be even starting set up for round 2 until a bit after round 1 delivers; let some people post about the board, generate interest again enough to merit another round.

Relaying this information shared on discord:

Keyboards aren't all that important given what is going on in China. However, as a result of the Novel Coronavirus, China's Central Government has issued an announcement that the Lunar New Year holiday will be extended until 9th February in Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Guangdong. Regular working schedule in these areas is set to resume on 10th February. Depending on manufacturing locations delays are almost certain.
