Hey Umio, how would you choose someone else to take a spot? Would you make another form for the ones who missed out?

If someone drops out I will give some time notice before reopening the google form for someone to take the spot.

If everything goes well with this group buy I will create another for people that missed and internationals after this has ended.

Cause they dont show you all the keys available. Just send another set and I'll tell you if it's compatible or not.

You could stick with your set you found and buy an individual 1.75u, like from here:

Or, if you like the Nautilus colorway, you could get in on the GMK Nautilus round 2 group buy that's starting on April 2 instead of buying the Tai Hao copy that has much more limited compatibility:

Yes, looks like you're in the canvas group buy, but it's moving fairly slowly while the mahjong is closed as of now.

Thanks, I had just popped on to check in this morning, misread, thought the canvas was closed not vice versa. I appreciate you letting me know.

« Reply #65 on: Tue, 24 March 2020, 11:46:32 »
March 24, 2020 - I have already gotten a few messages about a request to delay the group buy due to the Corona-virus affecting almost all business in the world. An email has been sent with a form to all people in the Mahjong GB: Proposing a delay for invoices to be released until April 17th at the earliest.
Thanks All!

The group buy will probably be canceled for the low-Pro if not enough people are interested; it may be hard to get people in right now due to a lot of people being financially affected by everything happening in the world. Most likely will be another run of the hi-pro after this first run is complete.

Re: [GB] Canvas & Mahjong 65% Low/Hi-Profile +LHNP (Delayed till April)
« Reply #67 on: Fri, 27 March 2020, 13:08:51 »
March 27, 2020 - I will be delaying the GB and checking back in around April 17th and seeing how everything is progressing with the virus; hopefully get a good estimate of when a good time to send out invoices would be. Anyone who will be dropping out due to the delay please send me a PM.
Mid April I will be putting another form up to collect extra entries to offset anyone who can no longer participate in the group buy.
Hope everyone is doing well!
I will try to work on getting some other PCB designs done in the meantime as possible add-ons/files released to github (PCB mount stabs/non-hotswap board); though i cannot guarantee these will be done anytime soon as they are major changes to the PCB's design. These would most likely not be part of this initial group buy.

I'll go ahead and ask around to see how some people are doing and if the group buy should/can continue. Sorry for such a late response, I've been a little unmotivated these past couple of days.

April 26, 2020 - Invoices have been sent out today for the Mahjong! check your inbox/spam; if you can't find it and you think you are on the list, please send me a message with your email you used so i can check to see if you submitted an email with a typo.
All invoice recipients will have 10 days to pay from the day they receive the invoice; after the 10 days are up (Wednesday, May 6th)  I will put up another Google Form so I can fill any missing spots.

Can't believe I missed this when it was first announced, I've been wanting a 65% with a full numpad on the LHS for a while now. Submitted a form for the fill-in slots hopefully there's still room, though I think I forgot to indicate wanting an extra PCB, any chance I could modify that response?

Edit: nvm, all good no need to change the form, just paid. Thanks for GB!
