Hey Kasterborous,

How many 6.C will be available? will there be any hard cap?

Also, this is a long shot, but i'll ask any way. Will there be a 2nd runs? I feel that this will be gone in 45.2sec. :p

Upped MOQ to 300!

How is a higher Minimum Order Quantity a good thing?

Unless you mean Maximum?

Once MOQ met, GB Closes.

That's how I read it as well. Which would mean that Hex uses MOQ to mean Maximum Order Quantity. Which is a bit odd considering most GBs use it to mean Minimum Order Quantity.

I love this so much - one of the few GBs I'm ready to hop on right now. Like others have mentioned, MOQ = min or max?

After much internal discussion, we've decided to do something unique with the GB.
After the quantity of 300 is hit, we'll keep the page open for 30 more seconds so people who have slower internet or want to order add-ons can do so without having to rush.
We hope this alleviates some of the stress and urgency when dealing with FCFS Group Buys. Cheers!

Are you worried it's hard to use on the right? Far left seems very far away, and might make the board look unbalanced.

Can you share the image of the gasket that to be used? are they off the shelf or proprietary.
If its proprietary do we get extra if extra pcb+plate is purchase?

Just theory crafting here since I've never had a keeb with a rotary encoder.
  If it was placed on the left corner, you'd have a lot more free space to actually touch and turn the knob. There you could use c. 50% of the circumference of the dial (plus from above). Where it's placed on the renders currently, it looks like you'd kind of have to rely on the 25-ish percent to the "north" where no other keys get in the way. I suppose it also matters how tall the knob actually is. If it's taller than the surrounding caps then it won't matter as much.
It's possible I just have fat fingers

I was on the fence until I saw the numpad layout options and the inclusion of split right shift and split back space 😁😁😁 Full size boards never looked so appealing

I'm regretting not joining the group buy now. I was concerned about incoming clash flow that worked itself out after all. Will there be extras?

In love with the southpaw with that design. If there are extras how can I be sure to get in on it quick?
