Like Phemia said, the badge in the original spot kept it different from the rest of the bunch.

Just purchased my space, and now I'm waiting on this. 

Frosted PC please! :D

OG batch placement would definitely keep the connection to the first one, which would be nice!

To be honest, I really liked the old design. I'm not feeling this one (yet). I'm hoping there will be a Polycarbonate version?

I prefer the badge on the right - it's what makes the original Think so unique looking. Also don't love the boating theme, would be cool to stick with the original "Think" idea. As far as colors, I would die for a forest green.

I think the OG placement is the most unique, as not many other boards have distinctions in this place and I think looks really clean (also being someone who missed out on R1, I think that the OG placement is very desirable). I also agree with others and think that the top right is pretty overused by other boards

I was wondering if you guys were set on the badge design and might want to seem more.

I also agree with others to maybe stray away from using 2020 on the badge so that it can have more of a timeless design.

Saw in discord right now that this is now a gasket mount design? In that case then regardless of design, it's a big step up from the previous version. I'm ok with other placement of the badges, just not really feeling the sail badge. But the 2020 badge rocks.

I like the New Badge position, not because its "Better" but because it makes the board different. I am not into the whole lets relase the same board on the 2nd go. The board should be different its what makes these GB unique in that you have something that isn't necessary going to be around next year. My 2 cents.

The old badge position is better, as the 2 keys on top design is more functional imo.

Looks so great and I canít wait to get my hands on one. I personally think that you should do 3 different top stylers if possible where you do og badge, new badge, and badge less for those who donít like it but this might not be applicable. But also for materials I think the normal aluminum and especially polycarbonate would be fantastic.

Def interested. Personally I'm not a fan of using years for aesthetic purposes, especially when that date doesn't mean much other than the year it was made. 2020 also kind of sucked for everyone (trying to forget this year). On the front badge, it seems like that can be replaced with an older, which is cool. On the back, it makes it a little harder.  Def would love if the PC version came back.

Definitely interested, both badge positions are fine with me, but I'd rather not have "2020" on it. I agree with some people above; this board should keep a timeless look.


Also, is there any way to get on an email list for this so I get notifications?

I like the original placement  better because it creates the slight speparation with the arrow keys and to me that is more pleasing then the cramped feel of the top badge.

the original position is better for sure.

it is the unique hallmark of the think 6.5, the only board out there with a badge in the middle. 

move it to the top, and it becomes just like any other ordinary corner blocker 65%.

some more thoughts:
- original replacement looks much better. the top right option is okay but doesn't look better than kyuu or 910
- prefer the "Think" badge to others. this is much elegant
- 2020 text is okay but the font may be improved, while it's a fat font
- the biggest part I am not in is the design of top and bottom side. R1 is so elegant and minimalistic, but this one is so complicated and with many lines

I prefer the original placement. It stands out much more from the crowd. Seems that all other boards out there are placing the logo on the top right. I also like how the original placement of the logo make it feel less cluttered. Really beautiful.

Some personal opinions:
1.Original badge place is wonderful enough, actually I think the original place is one of the lightspots of your design. There are already so many other boards have badges at top wright such as key65.
2.PC PLZ!!!!
3.Would you please add an PC weight choice? So someone can make it a perfect portable board.

Anyway I am gonna get one for myself. Good luck!

One more vote on a badge-less version.  Know we're the minority but please consider.  My 2nd choice would be the 2u badge, but preferably without 2020, as I personally don't prefer anything with a year attached to it.

Edit: Also frosted PC case/plate please.

Original placement if we go back to the Original Think theme. If the nautical theme is set, top corner but I say with small bezel around the badge. A bezel-less badge in the corner just doesnít look aesthetically appealing to me.

New badge placement is better, less unique aesthetically but the board is more functional overall.

I agree with the other posters though, the sail boat design isn't as good as the original "Think" theme.

Honestly, I prefer the og run. The back is a little too elaborate on this one, and the board itself is a little to chunky for my liking. Maybe keep og design, just change the logo on the back?

I'm def interested in the top right corner blocker version of this. Maybe not a boat for the logo though? I also dislike the 2020 on the back very much x_x

-IF polycarb is an option, a bluetooth pcb would be extra sweet!
-Hotswap pcb with fixed split backspace pls :)
