Response submitted. Glad someone pointed me in this direction. I need a solid set of WoB keys.

Am i the only one who likes the new arrows? I say keep em as is

I expect most people prefer the new ones. It's just the people who are really attached to OG Cherry look for some reason are very vocal about it.

I am really on the fence for this kit. I would buy it with the hope that there will be a BoW Colevrak kit in the future like the WoB kit running now. I guess it'll depend on the final price.

Just by looking at the base kit I didn't even notice the change at first. Personally I wont be getting an accent kit since the arrow alignment and accent keys aren't very important to me.

I actually like the new arrows but since I already have a R1 minimal set, I won’t be getting them. Kind of disappointing that the only way to get them would be to buy a full new base kit. I agree with the sentiment that the OG arrows should be moved to the base and new arrows in the extensions.

I understand some people prefer the OG style off arrows, we weren't originally planning on adding them but did for this reason. But, out of the current form entries the people who voted yes form far from a majority out of total votes. I suspect that will change even more once the form gets shared to other platforms considering the more "OG" audience of Geekhack so I don't think switching around the places would be the right call.
Seriously though, there is. We strongly feel like it's the better design decision, text is centred so arrows are too. Like I said before, I understand some people strongly prefer the OG style arrows and that's why we added the option even though we weren't planning on it. I don't think basing kit design for 100% of people around the small percentage of people who would both have bought the BoW mod kit without having a set to use it on or the handful of people looking to combine this with R1 Minimal is a good choice.

Keep in mind that the percentage of people filling out the form who actually end up purchasing the set is likely going to be higher for people coming from Geekhack compared to other platforms. And in general, some people will fill out the form just for the heck of it, without necessarily caring about the set; or just being driven by momentary hype, which is fickle and may wear off by the time the GB rolls around. We probably care about the set enough if we take the time to offer constructive criticism in hopes of improving the set and, thus, the value for money we get. (Except for Emir, he just likes taking every opportunity he gets to **** on centered mods. :D)

That, combined with the fact that the relevant question in the form wasn't phrased in a way that would allow you to definitively draw such a conclusion, tells me that you shouldn't be too quick in writing off direct feedback like that.

Realistically speaking, though, I'd wager that the majority of buyers won't care about the arrows either way in the end. So, why not listen to those that do care and score yourself a few easy wins (kit purchases), and make those customers happy?
And here's an honest question, which may or may not be indicative of anything: how much feedback have you received that's in favor of keeping centered arrows in base? I don't expect it to be much, since people have a tendency to complain about the things they don't like more than comment on what they do like, but I'm wondering if there was any significant feedback in that direction at all.

Also, way to turn your back on people who supported you in R1 and were looking to support you again. That doesn't leave a very good impression.

He said it's not going to happen, just give up. He and Dixie strongly feel like it's the better design decision (lol). Just respect it and leave it at that, I will. :)

I love it and will definitely be in the groupbuy.

Although, I think thought alternate keycaps would look a little nicer if the colours were a little more washed out and not so bold.

Some of us grew up with the OG Cherry keyboards that used the older legends. It's a nice throwback to continue using them (ie one of the allures of GMK), though I personally won't boycott a set that uses the newer ones if I like the set enough; ie I bought MoDo Light.

For me: the more accent kits the better, I'd be down to buy the bold and washed out it there were two offered.

The only thing issue I see for people who have R1 is that if they want to get the new arrows in addition to their first set they will have to buy the whole base kit, or go out of their way to find someone who doesn't care much about it and is willing to trade arrows. That's the only thing that doesn't make much sense to me. Other than that I'm glad to see this set out for people who missed out on R1 and not having to pay outrageous prices. Accent colors are a little too bright imo.

Those keys were more so meant to give people another option, they're the technically correct keys but sets have always used the simplified version so that's what we defaulted too. The R3 \| key is for ISO-US right, that seems to have an incredibly small userbase.

Not that flawed argument again...

Monochrome accents would be really nice, like Modo Light Alternate. Would much prefer that than the color accent kit, specially for that minimalist BW look. Either case a must get set!

Please reconsider adding an option for an Icon mod kit. I think it'd look great with this set. Black esc and enter keys would be cool too if you're willing to modify the accent kit.

Ahh I love the base kit so much, those accents are just so bright and I think the colors would clash with other colors. They remind me of candy wrappers. I wish the colors were either monochrome or a bit more tasteful (like modo accents, something not so starburst-y).

WS2 (GMK Monochrome, GMK Bleached) might be a better match than WS1.
