IIRC someone took it up and was organizing it...Tho my memory is hazy.

I remember Rag posting an email about this.  No word on whether they responded yet though.

I think the reddit email and most of the reddit discussion got deleted when the forum DB was rolled back but I'm definitely still interested in the idea

I'd certainly like to refit my DSI Modular Mac with some PBT double-shots. The stock keycaps lose their texture very quickly, which is quite distressing.

Only problem is, it's a tenkeyless board with some of the keys not being a standard size, uses sculpted keycaps, and it's one that's pitched at Mac users to boot, so the labeling is completely different. I'd want something befitting of the board itself, especially since it uses Fn-key combinations for the numpad keycodes. Given that I seem to be only one of two people on this entire forum who even own the keyboard in question, I don't think a group buy is going to work out.

I kind of want a "robot unicorn attack" so that it can go with nyancat to give double rainbows. The only thing is that I'm not sure where to put it because we'd need a long key for the unicorn and I imagine most people wouldn't want it on one of the letter rows and you can't do it on the bottom row because you can't have dyesub pbt spacebars.

How about the assassin's creed logo? Probably nice in black, but red isn't bad either.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 42485[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 42489[/ATTACH]

In terms of copyright, the article here seems to have two conflicting opinions as to whether or not this is copyrighted. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Assassin%E2%80%99s_Creed_logo.svg

"This image of simple geometry is ineligible for copyright and therefore in the public domain, because it consists entirely of information that is common property and contains no original authorship."

"This work contains material which may be subject to trademark laws in one or more jurisdictions. Before using this content, please ensure that you have the right to use it under the laws which apply in the circumstances of your intended use. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you do not infringe the rights to this trademark."

I'm not sure exactly what the logo is suppose to represent. It almost looks like it's a pair of calipers or some instrument used for cartography, in which case I'd be inclined to think that it's not copyrighted.

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 42486[/ATTACH]

Seems like it's similar to the logo for the Freemason's guild, which would only support that theory.

Well, the zerg and protoss logos are simplistic, but well defined. In comparison this is just three curved lines pretty much. Maybe I could try to write something to Ubisoft to ask.

They are artwork which is part for the game, which is copyrighted. So I don't think you'll be able to get round the copyright/trademark for the AC logo. It would make a nice keycap tho, I can't deny that.

I'm not ever sure how much interest there would be around here to begin with, but I assume that SP wouldn't do the logos of record labels? The Hospital records 'H' is pretty generic, but NinjaTune certainly is distinctive.
