Mike, slightly off topic: US sales tax is now being charged?

Not a complaint, I don't mind paying it, just curious on what changed since you weren't charging it before.

Somebody needs to talk with Novelkeys about putting the ACTUAL end date in for group buys. Saying something runs "until" a certain date makes it seem as though that date is the last date to place orders... Since I was waiting on my paycheck to put an order in they are now out money on a full set purchase.

What's even more frustrating is that the Daily Clack still has it listed for sale.

I just sent a message to NovelKeyz regarding this same thing. I was getting paid today, so I was waiting on that to put the order since it said Feb 28th. This is pretty frustrating. Any way we can put an order in? Don't really want to pay the premium of ordering through Daily Clack to get it to NA.

Thank you very much, I've ordered quite a bit through you guys and I really appreciate this. I apologize for being rude in my previous post, I shouldn't have flown off the handle as I did and I respect you guys being calm and caring about this.

You definitely have won my respect for the remainder of my stay in this hobby and I look forward to many other neat sets you are going to provide.


Sincerely,

Jacob

Stating the GB period using "thru" instead of "to" would clear up some confusion.  If it ends 27 Feb at 23:59, say "thru 27 Feb", not "to 28 Feb."  Just my two cents.

So Uniqey just announced their new tray design on Reddit, which now uses recyclable material:
https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/frb364/introducing_the_new_gmk_trays_banderoles/
Is Darling going to be in the list of box art updates, or is it going to stay the same as what we are going to get based on the current renders (which looks absolutely beautiful and I absolutely love it)?

Best bet is GMK Darling will be using the updated trays and banderole.

I'm a little sad since I prefer the plastic long trays and banderole.

Extras go up a short time after all group buy purchases have been fulfilled. They tend to go fast so you'll want to periodically check to see the time and date they will become available. If you don't manage to get any extras from a vendor then you can try to buy a set off r/mechmarket, though I should warn that many people try to sell their GMK sets for exorbitant prices.

I have a question, why dont they do doubleshot samples? So we can actually see easily how the red looks on the pink.

This is something I wish GMK would do as well, but if I had to guess it's probably more work (and therefore, more costly) to purge two moulding machines for the sake of color samples rather than just one. It would definitely help with making decisions regarding colors, though generally I think GMK did a great job matching them in this case.

Yeah, if makes sense to me because there were problems with hard to read legends in the past.

Damn. I got into this hobby way too late! Would have loved to get the base set and the Rama caps for this lovely set.

Will there likely be a round 2? Or is there a slim chance that someone doesn't want their set anymore? :)
