Hi All

I've been around the Mechanical Keyboard community for some time, and wanted to put my foot in the door, with so many interest checks and group buys by first time runners coming around recently I was inspired to start my own, meet GMK Simpsons, I've been a long time fan of Simpsons and it's been a huge influence on my life, as I was born in the same year that simpsons started, this set pays homage to two of my favorite Simpsons characters, Mr Burns and Krustin the Clown, the yellow is the same skin colour as mr burns while the blue is the same blue as Krustin The clown.

I picked GMK to be the manufacturer as they have a reputation for producingthe highest quality keycaps, and the profile as DSA because DSA has always been a profile that interested me and I've been wanting to try it out.

At the moment I'm still trying to decide what addition sets I should be including, this is just the base, and if it should be done in PBT.

I'm also trying to learn how to render keycaps, unfortunately there were a couple of issues, one of the keys went blue and I can't change it back and one is black and blue and I can't figure out why, for now just imagine that the keys are the same as the keys around them and that is what it's supposed to look like.

244525-1




If any vendors are interested in running this please PM me, otherwise I'll do it as a closed run through paypal.


EDIT: I have contacted a man who will provide render, please stand while I get additional pictures.

Will you have a 65% compat kit with R3 Page Up and R4 Page Down, I know DSA is uniform profile but I like the keys to be the correct profile anyway.

Will there also be a colemak kit? I know that's pretty popular for DSA sets.

I must be blind lol don’t have my glasses on. I for sure thought the keycaps in the render were SA since R1 looked to have a different height. But I should put on my glasses.

1. GMK only makes Cherry profile keycaps. You could have known that if you cared to do some "research" for about one minute.
2. As someone who is completely new to this community it's highly unlikely that you will be able to do a "private" groupbuy. You will have to go through a vendor.
3. Vendors do not contact you. You contact the vendor and ask if they would be interested in running your set.
4. Your render is clearly showing SA profile keycaps. Not DSA.
5. Intellectual property is a thing you know...

I remember when the Simpsons first aired in 1989, not everyone had a television like they do nowadays. Good to see someone with REAL life experience coming up with sets, not just the younger kids who just make half-arsed ICs and Group Buy runners who have sets come out a completely WRONG colour, HOW IS THAT ACCEPTABLE?. I am truly excited to see this set progress into a Group Buy Phase and am very keen on more updates (40% Compatibility would be nice :thumb:

2. GMK does not do "private" runs. They only send quotes to vendors meaning you have to go through a vendor for a groupbuy.

I have gotten renders from the man, he has gotten me proper DSA keycaps, the previous renders was in error, it was wrong profile.

ngl actually half decent renders.

But this is still not DSA. It's cherry profile now (the one that GMK actually makes)

Also the board in your renders is not a Koyu. It's the Constellation.

All I'll say is that waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day, and in an entirely different context, proposals went through a certain moderator first, who didn't approve them for publication until they met a checklist of stuff that needed to be present. This was independent of the proposal's content itself (or the moderator's personal opinion about it, for that matter); it was specifically to avoid wasting time with half-baked ideas.
