Welcome new members!

First off, welcome to the world of keyboards. There are two things you will discover quite shortly about keyboards and keyboarding related accessories: first, they are a moneypit. Your money? all gone. Second, they are awesome; you will be poor but happy.

OK, LOGISTICS: you are currently a New Member. That means you can view nearly all of the forums, and post replies, including attachments and videos, in every forum. There are a couple forums you can't see, but no worries, they're a bit like spamalot; they are silly places where only silly things are done. At some point (currently 50 100 60 posts, but subject to change without notice), you will join the ranks of the Full Members, soldiers of fortune who are allowed to submit NEW topics to the classifieds and group buy forums.

TL;DR YOU NEED AT LEAST 25 POSTS AND 60 DAYS OF MEMBERSHIP TO POST NEW TOPICS IN CLASSIFIEDS & GROUP BUYS  :-*

HOWEVER: do not think that you should simply spam your way up the clacker ladder. Your keyboard, as you will soon learn, is a refined tool only meant for the purest of thoughts. If ye spam, we will delete. Instead, have fun, ask questions, comment on demik's flatulence, etc. in short, LURK LESS! we welcome your input.

SO THEN: Welcome to geekhack! Have fun clacking! (and sorry about your wallet :D)

How did you know I was spending a lot on keyboards?!  It is nice to know that I am not the only one spending too much money on keyboards.  I got obsessed with the model M very quickly.  It started when I ran a google search for linux keyboard.  Unicomp was basically all I came up with.  I got the classic 101, no Windows keys thank you, linux version with Caps Lock, Ctrl and Esc, ~ keys switched.  I now own several from Unicomp, and the original from clickykeyboards.

First off, welcome to the world of keyboards. There are two things you will discover quite shortly about keyboards and keyboarding related accessories: first, they are a moneypit. Your money? all gone. Second, they are awesome; you will be poor but happy.

OK, LOGISTICS: you are currently a JUNIOR CLICKER. That means you can view nearly all of the forums, and post replies, including attachments and videos, in every forum. There are a couple forums you can't see, but no worries, they're a bit like spamalot; they are silly places where only silly things are done. At some point (currently 50 100 60 posts, but subject to change without notice), you will join the ranks of the CLICK AND CLACKER, soldiers of fortune who are allowed to submit NEW topics to the classifieds and group buy forums.

HOWEVER: do not think that you should simply spam your way up the clacker ladder. Your keyboard, as you will soon learn, is a refined tool only meant for the purest of thoughts. If ye spam, we will delete. Instead, have fun, ask questions, comment on demik's flatulence, etc. in short, LURK LESS! we welcome your input.

SO THEN: Welcome to geekhack! Have fun clacking! (and sorry about your wallet :D)

Is there a cure for the "spend all money on keyboards" syndrome?
My doctor couldn't diagnose the problem.

Hi guys I am new to Geek Hack. I had an account before but i had trouble navigating it...I am not the sharpest tool in the shed. Some of you have bought keyboards from me thru EBay. Valerie8547 if that helps. Any advice you can give me on how to use the site better would be appreciated. I thought i was alone in my love for keyboards until i found this site. Keep up the great work. Thanks!  :D

New to the world of keyboards and I gotta say I'm excited. Bought a Race with black switches and white LEDS so I figured I may as well get myself on these forums. In the words of agent Smith, "It is inevitable". I choose the Red pill.

@YoungMichael88: Welcome to Geekhack!

We are not here because we are free, we are here because we appreciate a good keyboard :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

There are not that many places selling mechanical keyboards in Australia, at least not a reasonable range of them.  Lucky we have PCCG here in Melbourne :)

You can still post in existing threads (if someone happens to be selling what you want) - you just can't start a new thread yet.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Well I think this is awfully silly because I have bought from people here before.  Looks like I must needlessly spam just so I can use this as such.  Must I spam your site or would a donation due you proper?  *TLDR: SPAMMING*

Hey guys I am new and not new. I came on here just to buy a keyboard, Leopold TKL with Browns, and I didn't really contribute. But now that I have my second board, CM Storm Quickfire with Blacks, and looking to contribute.

I really want to do a stock looking mouse mod with MX switches.

Glad to have found this finally...spent a good bit of time in an attempt to figure out why I could not created a wanted thread despite buying and selling numerous items in the past.
