I also noted that "Tenkeyless [TKL, 80%]" = "A keyboard layout without a numpad." defines 80%, but 80% does not have its own entry at the top of the list.

This is on purpose as "tenkeyless" is a lot more common than "80%". I can add a "see tenkeyless" though.

Usually, yes.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Although that's not really something specific to GH - eBay sellers use it all the time.

Agreed - but we have MOQ, GLWS, WTB etc. in the glossary too, so I think it should be in it.

Fair enough.

Btw "Geekhack" is not listed.

That's where the name of the site comes from and what the name "Geekhack" means - the explanation of what "Geekhack" is, is this forum and its community. I don't think it fits to be honest. Compare it to the entries for Deskthority or KBDMania for example.

However maybe we should do a newki entry called "The History of Geekhack" - thats where it would fit perfectly. There's one on the old wiki but it just contains links to esoomena and the mystery keycap...

That's a good idea - the mystery keycaps, new moderators, r00tw0rm, perma-banned members, all that makes up GH folklore and should be recorded somewhere for posterity.

Should add in rubberdome or RD. What's a good definition for it though?

RDOMS
rubber dome over membrane switch

i think imav came up with that one

I'm not so sure about this one. I feel like the GH lore is part of getting to know the community. Seems to cheapen the experience if there's just a thread about all of the stories.

Your point is valid, and would provide new members with a sense of belonging as they learn the lore and history.

OTOH how many people actually read this sort of stuff before asking questions?

Also it would provide a handy reference and, ideally, links to the relevant posts for noobs like me :p

1st rule of dibs, do not talk about dibs!

Rule 8 from CC himself.

 :D
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

I think that generic definition should be fine (although CC would have the last say).  The main thing is not to say where dibs come from or what to do with them.

Hm. Is it worth putting all the Korean stuff here or should there be another thread that compiles all of that. What do you think would be easier for people to refer to?

Maybe we should make a thread that collects custom keyboards? I could put in a short definiton for korean customs though.

Edit: Oh and I could need some help with TG3 and Deck, Deck is a brand of TG3 Electronics, right?

It could be easier to have a Custom Keyboards section that could include ongoing projects from GH as well as older Korean customs. TG3 is the parent company for Deck keyboards, TG3 offers alot more variety of electronics whereas, Deck is more or less their gaming logo for keyboards.

Added definitions for Deck and TG3

On the Deck website, it seems like they want their keyboards to be known as a backlit gaming board.

On the TG3 website, they advertise themselves as "...a leading supplier of engineered input solutions". They sell their input devices to the "...medical, industrial, point of sale, military, mobile data, telecommunications, white goods, and gaming..." marketplaces.

I could change TG3 to "An input device manufacturer that is also the parent company of Deck." if that suits it better.

However I think I should actually reduce the Deck entry to just "A keyboard manufacturer" since I used that already a couple of times and didn't expand any other entries on what kind of keyboards they produce.

Might be worth adding links to GMK & BSP websites since there are lots of companies with those names :
http://www.bspeurope.dk/home.html
http://www.gmk-electronic-design.de/en.html

Also,
BNIB : Abbreviation for "brand new in box".
NOS : Abbreviation for "new-old stock" - unsold stock of a product that is no longer produced.

Will try and post some more here soon.

Added your definitions, thanks!
However I did not add the links, I kind of want to keep it link-free (it currently only contains two links to pictures). The entries for both BSP and GMK include the full name of the companies - searching for those gets you directly to the websites.
