Commonly, there are 60%, 80% (86/87/88, or TKL), and Full-size (104/105). Also my 40% haha.

110% is something sprit made up to describe extra keys on a full-size. :)

Don't forget 75%. Also, even though there's boards like the FC660 that are slightly larger than 60% I don't like adding a specific percentage for those. It just makes it overly complicated imo.

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'm NOT a fan of the shine discussion here. This should just explain what the phrases mean. Can we edit that out of ABS, PBT, and POM?

This list should be objective as possible and not be leading.

...so I added a neutral definition.

Never saw PD. Do people really need an abbreviation for four letters? :-X

All others were added.

Glossary? Awesome!

I got a suggestion: There are several stores and other sites mentioned. Could you add a link to those sites? I mean... if you get the information about something you were looking for and then have to look for a link somewhere else seems like a hassle ;) (even if it might be as trivial as using a search engine).

It could also be a link inside the forum such as the "all keycaps site list" thread: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45672.0

Maybe a collection of vendors would be something, but I don't know if I want to add links in the glossary. It really takes just a second to search for a site.

I kinda saw this thread as a lit of words and abbreviations used on GH that might confuse new members or not really be relevant outside the GH community.

You know what would be better? A photo of tsangan and moogle or winkeyless kits. The words described in the glossary are fine but I don't think it clearly illustrate until a photo is shown.

Ok, I'll look for them. Question: are we concerned about copyright? If yes, I'll ask the original poster for permission before we put in the glossary. I don't have any of these kits, unfortunately.

Check this out for Keycap GBs. I'd rather put the GBs over there.

I'm still not sure what exactly is GON and IMSTO. Ha ha.

Ever scroll down on the main GeekHack page and go look at "Vendor Forums" and all the sub-forums underneath that section? GON and IMSTO are right there.



The glossary is mainly for terms and acronyms people don't understand while they read through threads. You still need to read threads though.

And BS - buckling spring, for that matter.

RD - robber dome keyboard, where each keypress deforms a rubber dome causing contact between the PCB and a conductive pad under the rubber dome.  Commonly used in keyboards packaged with systems.
BS - buckling spring - a switch technology where a physical spring buckles as the keycap is pressed down, causing an electrical contact to be made.  Common in older IBM and recent Unicomp keyboards.

Both a bit verbose, I know.

American slang for something shiny like jewelry. Not really keyboard related per se.

Not really keyboard related, but ... http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=35288.0
"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.

Should we add in TKL/75%/60%/40% here or should I add it to the OP of Simple Questions? I think there's some confusion. Do we need it at all?

It's already in the glossary. I don't mind it being in two places if you want to add it to the SQ thread, but I think it kinda fits in the glossary.

Could be added why it is called 75% - has 75% the keys on a full-size board ...

Not necessarily.  People might assume it is 75% the physical case size, whereas it is actually based on the number of switches.  Isn't it?  LOL

Hm, I think we'll leave it as is for now. If there's more input/opinions on this, please let us know. And we'll make a decision accordingly.

OK I added a general note for percentages and changed 60% slightly since that is kind of an excpetion. I think this is a good compromise, please tell me what you think.

Looking good :)

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.
