Also, I forgot to mention that you'll have to give a Geekhack username for the sale as I want to avoid people signing up with different accounts/usernames.

Okay well just a heads up- Blinkshine is NOT me. He just looks EXACTLY like me with a fake mustache on. But it's not me.

Wooo hooo!! I FINALLY got these damn stickers in the mail SO I'm ready to have a sale.


Sale will be this Saturday at 6:00pm

Countdown timer here


*The sale will be via google form - I will provide a link to the form when it's closer to time.

*The form will be up for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, all entries will be fed to RNG and winners will be sent an invoice.

*Everyone who wins also gets a sticker for freeeee!

That is all!

----

Show Image


Finally a date and time, looks like the stickers were well worth the wait :D  I'm loving the multi draw to win multiple caps setup idea too, very fair - seems you've thought this through so I'm sure it will go very smoothly.

Just to check your timer is counting down to 6pm UTC?  That's a good time, but I'm expecting you to be calling that lunchtime as you're in the US and you said 6pm...

Thanks for confirming :)

We're +1 at the moment though so that's 7 here.  I think :confused:

p.s. You're right - this is the friendliest time to cater to the entire world except a couple of tiny islands at +13 or something crazy!

One of the coolest posts I've seen so far. Incredibly informative and a great look into what goes into all these caps people obsess over. Looks like it takes a lot of hard work, patience, experimentation, and a creative eye. The quality on the finished products is on point. Really looking forward to the sale!

I know you had said you need to have a registered GH account to enter... but is there going to be a requirement for the age of the account??? I only very recently registered because linkshine and xx7 kept bugging me to get over here, but I've been very active on r/mechanicalkeyboards for a while. I haven't gotten any artisans yet, but Deep Space is my favorite set and on my primary pok3r, and I'd love a shot at some of those caps.

Welcome!!

No, account age doesn't matter. I encourage people to sign up to GH to enter if they don't have an account.

Any attempts to enter multiple times or whatever will not be taken lightly, but I'm hoping people will just be honest! This is my first sale so there is a lot to learn still though. ha.

She mentioned a bit earlier that they're only MX this time around! I'm eagerly awaiting the same, but I have 3 other MX boards, so at this point I don't have a preference! I just love the design of these caps! Bravo!

Should be! I don't have any sliders so I haven't tried them, but they have the traditional round stem so I'd assume they work with sliders.

If you want to make it 6pm your time that wouldn't be so bad Booper - everyone can come early and find it changed, it doesn't work the other way (if they think it's 6 your time they'll miss it...)  I would feel sorry for the Aussies who've already set an alarm though!

Of course this has nothing to do with the fact I just found out I'll be stood outside in a crowd from about 6:45 (7 saletime) for approximately 1.5 hours.  Hopefully I'll have reception and the form is easy :-X

Is the google form going to be displayed in the OP. It's kinda hard to hunt for the specific post. For instance, I had to comb through a few post to find your sale post and countdown timer.

Yea, I'm honestly not sure what the best thing to do would be. I feel like changing it to later would piss some folks off! But having it the way I do now may do that as well. haha. Oi. Next time I WON'T **** up the time!
