[GB] KY-01 // 75% Top-Mount Keyboard [GB on Pause]
« on: Thu, 30 July 2020, 04:35:51 »
    KY-01 // 75% Top-Mount Keyboard By KCK



    [GB Status]: The payment processor (Square Payments) decided to deactivate my account due to the sudden payments coming into my account. As a result I refunded all the payments that went through. To those that lost money to the currency conversion, I am truly sorry. This isn't much at all but if I run the KY-01 GB again, I will include a free custom cut eva plate foam for you guys.

    Refunds will take 4-14 working days so it will take a while. So in the meantime I will be finding an alternative payment processor and continue the GB. I will most likely have to register as a business before I start receiving any invoices this time.





    Latest Update [06/08/2020]:
    I've been notified by some people that they have already received their refunds. So to those that haven't received refunds yet, please wait patiently and you will most likely receive your refund in the next few days.

    If you choose the brass plate kit, the weight is around 1.9kg with no switches and keycaps. Fully built kit is around 2.2kg.

    Definitely participating!

    Got a question, the what is the color of the prototype images?

    And also, how the GB spots will work? First 100 people to fill up the form gets a spot or will be some kind of raffle?

    I believe KCK will ship from UK so it should be customs free assuming GB will meet estimated shipping date (before Brexit).

    Limited buys (like the 100 here) are often gone in seconds. This lasted for comparative eons.

    I think it was mainly because it was done via Google Forms. A lot of other FCFS GB is done via the shopify platform which has bots that creates unfair advantages. Either ways, got myself one although now not sure if I should change from Blue Grey to Aquamarine  :-\

    Not sure why you think Google forms can't be botted. It's a huge issue for Google forms as well. It's the reason a large number of artisan raffles have some trivia or bot style question in it. https://support.google.com/docs/thread/56038733?hl=en

    Currently inquiring about that. <- access denied
    I worded that wrong, now the question is "which one should I choose?" before paying the invoice

    Your choice (made when filling GB) should be already on the invoice.

    So to those who hadn't paid the invoice yet but had secured a keyboard will they have to once again fight for a spot in the GB when you re-open or are they still secured for a keyboard from your first run? Because I was just about to pay today but then checked the GB page once I saw it wasn't giving me the option to pay and found out you had issues with square. I hope everything turns out alright on your end though, really hoping to get this keyboard, very good looking and would be my first keyboard :)  thanks again for your hard work!
