Did you want to differentiate between Model M buckling springs and Model F buckling springs?

Also Zealios are new, popular, and would probably make an excellent addition.
"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

Are they singles only? Are there any manufacturers out there putting them in their keyboards beyond customs?

AFAIK it is only hobbyists using them in custom keyboards.

Any unified specs for me to put in the Database?  (eg black stem: 55g actuation, linear)

It is currently only for keyboards we carry with switch types. We have no keyboards with Gaterons to date

Yes, that makes sense business-wise I guess.

Actually, it's more about broken links / additional coding.  Most of our pages are written to link to corresponding products.  If those products don't exist, 404 errors result.  I can write catches for everything, but unfortunately only 24 hours in a day ;)  I'm always working to add functionality to the site, so hopefully not too far off (and even more hopefully - we get some boards in with Gateron switches ;D)

Yes please!
Also, I should note that it does look really good! Looking forward to seeing the new additions to the site in the future!

The GB thread lists these variants:

    62g - Linear (Clear stem)
    65g - Linear (Clear stem)
    67g - Linear (Clear stem)
    62g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)
    65g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)
    67g - Tactile (Purple ergo-clear stem)

Massdrop is not a manufacturer. Are there brands with Gaterons in them (Razer, Cooler Master, Varmilo, etc?)
