Was on a serious hunt for a polaris but I'm so glad this popped up. So in!

So the only challenge I have with my polaris is that I have learned I NEED nav keys. I guess I'm selling the polaris for this lmao.

Can you please let us know if this is intended to be unlimited, FCFS, or a raffle before the Think 6.5v2 goes live? I imagine there are a lot of us that are looking at both boards but would prefer the Vega. But without knowing if it's obtainable will push us towards the Think instead. I understand this isn't your problem. You will have no problem selling these boards whether the Think or any or board exist. Just let us know your intentions even if you can't guarantee it so that we can feel better about our purchase.

This board looks incredible. Hits all of the points I am looking for. Hopefully I will have one sitting on my desk one day.

Clay333 literally said what I was about to say.

I am just wondering if this will be a raffle or unlimited because if it's a raffle, I am just going to buy the Think 6.5 but I think it goes without saying people would rather buy this board than think 6.5.

Someone gave a joke answer but this is a serious consideration for many people.

This is confirmed to have multiple runs of whatrver it will be (fcfs, gb, raffle or w/e) so there's always the option of getting in on the next runs.

Please make 2.75u + 1.25u + 2.25u also possible for left thumb spacebar pressers (currently only 2.25u + 1.25u + 2.75u)
Wishlist: 1) hotswap gasket mount; 2) nice Alps blank caps; 3) Hipro Iris with adjustable tenting; 4) CNC POM case

I always really don't care if the board is fcfs/raffle OR unlimited. I just choose the board I like more. For example I hate that weight of think 6.5 so I will probably skip it. Vega for me looks much better and I would like it to be unlimited or at least 800 units fcfs or smth (but raffle is a bit more chill though, still it should be very legitimate with vendors showing how they raffle (we should get number ticket or smth))

There is no correlation between fr4 and hotswap; also my name is not aio3

Please make 2.75u + 1.25u + 2.25u also possible for left thumb spacebar pressers (currently only 2.25u + 1.25u + 2.75u)
I only added the single 225/275 split option as a temporary split measure; future round PCBs will likely drop 6.25U-based layouts entirely in favor of 3/1/3 split for a fully 7U-based board once 3U bars become further common.

Can you please let us know if this is intended to be unlimited, FCFS, or a raffle before the Think 6.5v2 goes live?
I am not involved in the development, production, or sales of the Think6.5, nor do I have the intent to compete against it.
I am simply moving this project exactly as I intend as many factors surrounding its development and production see fit; if this causes inconvenience to you, please buy a later round of this, or not buy this at all.

I took the dangerous path and will just focus on this board. Too clean and classy. Might as well go all out on it. If I fail to buy then for sure there will be upcoming GB's in the future. If you don't have a current custom keyboard, then go for the Think for the safer route.

It would require a redesign of the board; the existing design wouldn't be structurally sound in PC.

Since future rounds are, well, in the future, it would be nice to have a 2.75–1.25–2.25 option for this round, if circumstances allow.

Internal screw points too thin to withstand gasket compression force if done in poly

No

There is no correlation between fr4 and hotswap; also my name is not aio3

But there are some hotswap keyboards using fr4 plate as far as I know so it should be usable with hotswap. Or you think it won't work well with gasket system?

You are AI03 indeed, sorry, I though its O, not 0.

Since I've designed it very specific to MX, I cannot guarantee that Alps will work due to internals conflicts.
I do have a second generation version of Lunar in the works for an Alps-specific design.

Nice! Would you consider adding underglow LEDs to the PCB for the PC version?

No PC version this time around; the thin supports for the internal screws would shatter.
