Untipped kits: I can't speak for SP, but if Skull Squadron has to be taken as model, I bet that if the GB goes well they won't mind adding the less fortunate kits to the manufacturing line.

Thanks, placed my order but was so happy with ISO and signs that I ordered the base, space bar, ISO and multi UK kit and then I forgot text modifiers (as I am an idiot).

How do I modify my order to add the text modifiers?

Excessive and/or SPLady: It may be too soon to talk about it, but it would be a way to switch sets in the final order? For example: If someone that originally ordered the text mods, that wants instead the icon mods. Better sooner than later  ;D


I would greatly appreciate an answer on this. The point here relates with the alternate sets, mods sets in particular, not reaching MOQ, or reaching a tier with higher prices. Then, some options may be provided for the people to choose the cheaper option, or just to change from text to icons, or the opposite.

let's worry about that towards the end of the GB. Option 1: SP will produce them anyway. Option 2: you'll be able to cancel your order.

We can not modify or change a order. We can cancel a order and you can reorder. You can also add to an existing order by purchasing more.

I'm a bit surprised about the blank kits. They have been asked vehemently and nobody is taking them. Already at the first tier is a bergain ($89 for a FULL PBT set, including spacebar!), but at 15 tier is a steal!

i think the problem with SP's system is, and where others have mentioned also in this thread (i didn't check the macross thread as i didn't purchase the set, so i didn't spend much time reading it) where the buyer seems to be taking the risk, is due to the fact that when we joined early, we have our money "taken" or "put on hold by paypal" until the end of the gb period where the final price will be paid to SP or refunded, whichever applies.

these here i believe is what the reasons is that prevent people from joining the groupbuy early;
1) a big chunk of your money is "unusable" by u when u checkout, thus if there is an emergency, you can't use that money until paypal or SP refunded u back when u cancelled it and you probably don't get back your money immediately (do i get this right about the refunding part? pls correct me if i'm wrong)
2) some ppl feels that certain price in a certain tier(s) is only worth spending on certain kits. (i mean, seriously, who would want to buy the windowed kit at USD$36?)

these 2 reasons applies to myself. i'm not sure about how the others feel.
as of now, my cart is holding kits worth USD$230.00 with USD$5.00 of estimate shipping, and i'm from non-US state, which means shipping is going to be a lot more costlier.
i wouldn't want USD$235.00 to be put on hold by paypal when i still might need to use them.

this is my concern which i wish to address to SP.
i hope excessive and/or splady will consider putting a Commit feature into the groupbuy.

Unused funds are immediately released. If the order is originally $200 and the end price is $100, the remaining $100 hold is immediately removed.

Also, based on Paypal's documentations funds are only held for the first 3 days. We have an authorization to capture those funds up to 30 days after you place an order, however the funds are no longer held specifically for our order.

I believe Justnits mentioned this earlier,  but the way Massdrop has

Implemented their commit at a certain price option seems like a

really good idea.

I think the SP Group Buy system is simply new to most of us and because it adds the wrinkle of putting a hold on your PayPal account is something we have to get used to.

Speaking of the "Commit To Buy"... one of the things that makes Massdrop work is that they only have a few price points to hit and their selection is more limited. Take the Regal Set for example. It starts at $90 and the target price is $85. Their model is to drive interest to reach a specific price point and that's it. It's simple and it works well for them and I like it, but not for everything.

SP is using a traditional group buy model. We see all the price tiers up front, like we did with Retro, CCnG and Klaxon, but money is held on the  front-end instead of the back-end. Yes, if forces you to commit at a higher price point if you want to get in early, but the kits are not on a fixed price point, so you won't overpay for a set and you can always cancel.  There are also a ton of more kits available, so it's a much more complicated GB and I don't think it would necessarily fit well in a MassDrop model.

Like I said, it's a new wrinkle on the traditional GB model and I don't know that it's not a step in the right direction. Too soon to tell, but if things are tight and your wallet has been geek hacked (like mine) then you'll probably wait another 15-days or so to see how the sets pan out.  :thumb:

maybe fewer tiers is a good idea for the next time. Also they need a summary page where you can follow real-time the group buy status, imho.

i understand that it's much more complicated for SP that has so many tiers.
like i said, if SP can choose one designated tier for people to commit, like 50, 75 or 100, that's at least something for everyone else to see a "real time" interests for that particular kit.
or if it's not a commit feature since it will involves changing their groupbuy system again (which they have been improving all this while, really appreciate the effort!), how about something like a poll for us to see how many people are actually interested in that kit at which tier? (suddenly thought of this when matt mentions about real-time summary status)

I think the tier system they are using now is fine.

It lets you see the price drop faster. Even if it's only in small increments.

Do you think the base blank set and the blank extra mod set will tip by the end of the group buy? I want to get these two blank sets, but only if I can get both - if I can't, I would just want to get a text set. This is a bit of a predicament for me because I don't want to miss out on getting at least one of the sets.

I hate to put it this way, but personally I think it needs to be easier to pull out of commitment lol]

Like, I can put in my money now at $80 but i want it at $50. But i'm putting in my money to show people that i'm interesting in buying and bringing the tiers down. But if it doesnt go down, im not really interested in it at $80, for example

we just need to completely ditch the lower tiers.  their prices are insane.

windowed should have been set to $17.75 @ 25 as the lowest MOQ.

these lower tiers are the ones getting complaints.  just get rid of them and people won't be worried about overpaying and will have less money potentially stuck in purgatory.

I have to agree with this. I initially wanted to set all the MOQ at 25, SP suggested to start from 10 not to scare people, but it turned out we are scaring them anyway :)

BTW, the GB is going slow but steady. Hopefully more will join towards the end when the tiers will be smashed.

If MOQs were higher the commited amount will be lower, thus, less money should be put on-hold, and the final expected cost would be lower. Get the MOQs down. Only drawback may be that sets with lower demand may not reach thier MOQ. But money-wise is the more attractive way to go.

Would it be possible to add the rest of the number row to the Cyrillic set?  Namely, I have no interest in the 6.25x spacebar or the generic alphas in the Common Kit whatsoever--I would be getting this set specifically for the cyrillic alphas, but I would HAVE to buy the standard alphas too, just for 7 remaining caps from the number row and the function row (but at least I can get 8 of the function keys and arrows in the Lost And Found kit, also somewhat redundantly). 

Basically for anyone purchasing the standard kit, this set is a great deal.  For anyone with a 1.5x/7x bottom row layout, looking to get foreign legends, this set is suddenly a lot more expensive (a whole additional set of Pro modifiers currently at $45, spacebar, AND additional alphas for a lot of redundancy and left-over caps.)

I know guys, the Russian kit wasn't even planned and I sneaked it at the very last minute. That's what we've got, I didn't want to jeopardize the common kit for it, but really I hadn't enough time to make a rational decision, sorry. Maybe if the GB goes very well I can have some leverage on SP and ask for some modifications.

Thank you for the explanation.  I hope the Cyrillic set makes it to the MOQ!  Maybe some extra caps would help, but I do understand.

I have much hope for this set.
Still have to add icon RGB and something else I can't remember to my order.
If today had been a hippo, then you'd really have to worry about tomorrow.

I know I keep refreshing the PMK page like every 30min to see if there are any more orders.  It says 33 common kits have been sold.

Matt,  you said that you would probably change the Bitcoin cap. Any Ideas on what will replace it?

I still can't look at my orders on SP's site.
I have to look at my payment authorization email.

Sure, I should just remember what I ordered a day ago, but still.

It would be nice to have a small library of keyboards (100%, tkl, 60% and 'dox natch) and keycaps (SA, DSA, DCS) for group buy rendering. Wish I could help but that third dimension hurts my tiny brain.

Why don't we pay someone to come up with the models on the basis that they get credit and then they are open sourced? I'd chip in $30 or something. Blender models would be a good idea as anyone can get blender.

I find that quite sad. Even with the incentive of being paid they aren't interested? Maybe I've been spoiled by the many extensive Open Source code bases.

Right. I guess I'll be learning 3D next :(

maybe there's some 3d community we can ask to.

I asked a couple of guys here on GH I know they do 3d, but they are probably too busy.

That could be a solid option. I presume the SP reference guides provide a lot of the technical data for creating the caps? Combine that with some high quality reference images and that should be simple enough.

I believe most of the kits will reach the moq, with text modifiers leading 2:1 over icon.

Maybe the icon modifiers would have a better chance if they were standing side by side with the text modifiers instead of text first and icon almost at the bottom of the page.
