Looks awesome! Not sure about the knob so a knob free option would be great :P

Oh this is perfect. I get back into keyboards and stumble across this which is virtually perfect, I've been sorely missing the numpad for ages now.
  Rest well Nate

I'm interested. Make a custom piece that could convert a square to circle for the knob, so it can still be flush with the top.
That way, a customer can put it on either side. Sure a simple adjustment on the PCB wouldn't be that hard.
This would also be perfect for people who do not want to use a knob at all. Two birds...

I'm so on-board for this keyboard.

I'd rather it be knob-free, but it's not a deal-breaker if this board has a knob.  This layout looks perfect for me.  I'd use it mostly as a TKL with a bunch of macro keys on the left (for programming in Visual Studio).  I also do enough Excel that I'd have the numpad transform into a real numpad occasionally.

EDIT: Please keep F13.  I'll make use of every key.

I love the idea of a fullsized southpaw and the polycarb version of this looks so good!

Been trying to use my numpad with my left hand, found that it's not so bad. So I'm warming up to the idea of a southpaw board.

If you can keep it at the target price of 250-300, with mirrored keypad and knob on left, I'm in.

Ticks the right boxes for something I've been looking for (fullsize, southpaw, proper spacing for nav and numpad).

Not keen on the encoder. If it's for volume control, I prefer to use a DAC or amp to control volume rather than the OS for quality reasons. And if it's for something else like searching/scrolling, it's in an awkward place with the hand floating above the number pad for an extended period. The mid-board positioning strikes me as form over function, it looks better there at the expense of long term usability.

It’s already full size. Personally it’s cleaner to be knob free. Keep it simple  ;)

Ok, a full-size board? Finally?! Count me in! Only one question, what the heck is the knob for? Also a suggestion, the teal color is very nice, would love it a bit darker though, like a kind of dark emerald.

This keyboard checks all the boxes for me!

As a person working (occassionally) with spreadsheets, the numpad is nice to have and the southpaw layout means that I don't have to move my hands from the mouse to they keyboard back and forth.

Yep, I submitted my IC form as such. Hoping it pulls through and has a teal option, this would looks stunning.

So what's the results of the knob poll? Has that been finalized as well?
We're evaluating that when we get the prototypes in, estimated to be in a few weeks. As of right now the poll is a very very even split.

Any date and vendor for the gb?
Date is not finalized, expect it to be late this month or early next month. We would want to fulfill our existing 3C orders before starting something new. As for vendors, there's only us for now.

Confirmed southpaw is a bit of a downer for me, any chance a normal full-size unit would be produced?  :(
For this round, due to us wanting to keep costs low we've opted for one layout, however the future is yet to be decided.

Nice!  Any chance we can hear what the board will sound like?
When the protos come in I'll build one and upload the soundtests :)

have you ordered any protos yet?
Yep! We're expecting them to come soon. Once we're satisfied with the final design, then we'll start the gb.

Yes during the Group Buy you will be able to buy Extras!

FCFS!

too bad the navy color is removed.
We weren't confident with the Navy we received for 3C, so we would like to take some time to fine tune it before re-releasing the colour

Depends, right now we're sorting the 3Cs and are almost shipping it out, so the GB could be anytime from now.
