While Feet Pics is a funny name I thought going with GMK Blush represented the colors better. Plus Blush looks nicer for vendors.

FWIW, I think "Blush" is the better suited name.

Renders are nice, but a good IC should have at least a KLE diagram of an initial kit, lest we think this set is intended only for 63% keyboards (as all the units shown in the renders are of that form factor.

We are currently working on some kit, I will be guiding and giving him advice on what to have in the kits to have at least an initial basis for kits, from there it will be up to him on what goes in and out of those kits!

Has this died off? I certainly hope not! I held off on Bliss because I didn’t fully think I’d appreciate a uniform profile. But now that we have similar colors on classic cherry, I’m still very interested in this kit. Let’s make this happen!  :cool:

Price will be decided by GMK but I am not sure that is final, giving that transporting distance from GMK to vendors is varied so you will get final number before gb, base kit would be around 100 or a bit more

This is only partially true, the pricing given by GMK is a quote, the cost to manufacture and deliver to the vendors. While the price that the customer would pay is decided by the vendor. And yes it would be a little more than 100 USD for NA or some equivalent in another vendors' regional currency

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I don't believe this set should be run. Not yet at least.

A lot of what's on the IC at the moment feels incomplete and/or rushed.
  • Inconsistent Legends from Kitting to Board Renders
  • Questionable accent keys (they're the same as alpha colours)
  • Equally questionable mod-coloured spacebars
  • No transparency on colours chosen
  • The willingness to copy other people's ideas and go through with it if there's no backlash (This by itself should not be condoned in this community, and your response to the removal suggests otherwise)
I'd highly advise you consolidate these issues, and if these changes aren't able to be made by the Group Buy date, suggest delaying the set through vendors to a later date if possible. People are buying into your ideas and inspiration, and if they seem inconsistent and lacking effort, you only risk detrimenting your set as a whole.

I would also highly recommend taking all the suggestions, that were given in the Reddit post, into consideration. Right now the kitting is just a pure mess if I'm being honest.
People shouldn't pay money for an incomplete product like this. Take your time with it, do research and give it another try later this year.
