[Group Buy] Miami & Miami Nights (+Purple Fugu Giveaway)
« on: Fri, 05 May 2017, 23:06:39 »
Welcome to Miami!

Miami is one of the original custom keycap sets in the community. It was first run by [CTRL]ALT in 2013 and has since spawned many variants. We are delighted to introduce Miami in a new profile, while taking advantage of the striking colors offered by GMK to fulfill our Miami dreams.

100 - $135
200 - $125
300 - $120

Miami Nights have reached 80, and we will push the set through

Estimated Timeline:

Group Buy - 5/5/17
End Group Buy - 5/26/17
Submit Payment to Manufacturer - 6/2/17
Estimated Completion - 9/29/17

Layout:


Each Group Buy Participant will have a chance to win a Purple Sky Fugu

I love and hate you sherry!

I need both!
I've got people to disappoint, I got mistakes to make.
How can you believe that I'm not a waste of space?
Oh I'm sorry to disappoint, I seldom save face.
But how can I speak your language
when I don't know my own....

Haha, I definitely understand. We already ran the Miami Dolch set, and we planned to run a Sky Nights but I thought this would be one of the best sets ever.

Definitely getting in on this- especially as it solves the problem with Miami Dolch in that I have to get sets to cover all boards I'd want to put it on, rather than one size fits many. :)

Any chance of going with the Windows logo instead of diamonds? I'm not a fan of diamonds at all.  :-[

To me, they make any keyset look cheap or like a knock-off. It'll be a pass for me if it's diamonds.

Or at least replace with "Code" or "CODE" like GMK Cyan.

Whilst I won't be taking part, I agree with autobot. It looks fairly out of place when Control and Alt are letters. It makes sense if it's uniform (like GMK Penumbra, where the whole bottom row was caps), but mixing and matching feels a bit less fitting.

Thanks for your opinion! I'll definitely take this into consideration and might be adjusting it to the CODE Key. The reason why I chose diamonds in the first place was to use as little text as possible for the whole keyset.

By that logic, the Windows key would be a better fit, no?

Terry, the picture by autobot is the correct picture. Sorry about the complications.

Look at page up, page down, home, end, etc. You're using icon mods for the "standard" keys and text legends for 75% and 1800. If that's really correct, it's a deal breaker for me.

Seems the best option would be text mods & windows keys, just like in your non-GMK generated renders.

I think that'd work best. Having text means more of the contrasting color against the keycap color.  :thumb:

that's my preference too, but it's sherry's set to decide upon, plus it's already in GB stage so some people may have purchased knowing their preference of icon mods

I would prefer text as well but I could live with either assuming it's uniform. I can't live with an icon pgup next to a text pgdn.

Noooo, please no.  :'(
Diamonds look the best! There are too few keysets with them.

These diamonds might look like knock-offs of the Windows logo:
Those ones are the real deal:

'Code' and the Windows logo are boring. Every time I see a Windows logo, I can't help but think of the Microsoft standard keyboard:


These are Miami-themed keysets after all. Diamonds bring the bling!  :cool:

Miami Nights is good to go!

I'll continuously work with GMK to bring this set with all the correct keys. We'll do textless but not on the keys above the arrow keys (unless I can get the 1800/75 keys to be textless as well).

will the final key legends be determined before the order period ends?

It's already determined.

We are going with all textless for modifiers and text for above the arrow keys and most likely CODE keys on the bottom.

Too bad for the diamonds. They were spot on, in my opinion.  :(

Will that be textless even for the bottom row (except Code obviously)?

Control, Code, Alt, but definitely a novelty key in replacement for an additional windows key instead of Diamond. We'll do something more in line with the theme.

Honeywell had both CODE and Windows, and we'll definitely follow along.

I'll continuously work with GMK to bring this set with all the correct keys. We'll do textless but not on the keys above the arrow keys (unless I can get the 1800/75 keys to be textless as well).

will the final key legends be determined before the order period ends?

It's already determined.

We are going with all textless for modifiers and text for above the arrow keys and most likely CODE keys on the bottom.

Hi Sherry,

Just to confirm, Insert, Delete, Home, End, Page Up and Page Down will be all text?

Thanks!

GMK was busy last night, so I have to give another call.

I personally prefer to have them all textless, but it would only work if the 1800/75 support layout is also textless. If I cannot get them to be textless, then they'll all be text most likely.

Too bad for the diamonds. They were spot on, in my opinion.  :(

Will that be textless even for the bottom row (except Code obviously)?

Control, Code, Alt, but definitely a novelty key in replacement for an additional windows key instead of Diamond. We'll do something more in line with the theme.

Honeywell had both CODE and Windows, and we'll definitely follow along.

Just to clarify, Miami Nights will also have the windows double shot logo too? If so, that's amazing news!

I personally love the look of it with the windows logo, but that's just my personal preference! Really happy both are included (if I'm understanding this correctly).  :thumb:

Latest Update:

So we might not add an extra 6u spacebar at the time, but we will add the barred 5.

All legends including Esc will come textless.

The bottom row will look similar to this: https://gyazo.com/b178d616aba889cd5536c73b5a118c06

While I welcome the barred 5 (and I still hope for that 6u spacebar  ;) ), I would like to say that I'm not 100% sure about your decision to modify the modifiers.

Look at what's happened with Penumbra: you're considering an addon with lowercase modifiers, because no one loves the caps modifiers.

Sometimes I like to pick some keys from one set, and combine them with another set... having an icon instead of the usual "Control" could probably make the result look ugly...

At least you could probably consider the ISO symbology for modifiers?

Probably it looks like this:

I hate to be negative, but I feel compelled to put my two cents in as I very nearly spent $150+shipping because of what was prominently pictured on the store page is not what I would have received. You're encouraged to take it as a compliment, because if the colorways for the Miami Nights set wasn't so outstanding, I wouldn't have noticed, much less feel incredibly misled and disappointed.

I 100% agree with "Sometimes I like to pick some keys from one set, and combine them with another set... having an icon instead of the usual "Control" could probably make the result look ugly..."

I realize fully that I'm not running this GB, that what I find aesthetically pleasing does not hold for someone else, and that I'm also relatively new to this hobby. With that said, this set and how this GB has been run has been eye opening for me. I've purchased 6 sets to date over the last 18 months, and feel like I've managed to dodge some real bullets if this is how sets are commonly run...

I *almost* purchased the Miami Nights kit virtually instantly when I saw the render, but happened to do some more reading on forums where I came across a comment that made me take a closer look. I'm glad I did because I would have been pretty upset if I spent over $150+ on caps that in large part do not look like the prominently displayed high quality render on their store page.

I do not understand why a GB would start before the design is finalized.
I do not understand why a high quality render was commissioned, and placed prominently on the store page, that in large part, does not represent the finalized layout.
I do not understand why a high quality render known to not represent the actual intended layout has been left on the store page for the duration of the GB.
I do not understand why it wasn't until 3 days before the GB is scheduled to end that the person running it deigned to impart three scant lines of text and a link to a blurry image of 4 caps to vaguely describe would the finalized set would "look similar to".

To me the way this has been run feels at best disrespectful, and at worst, dishonest.

I am also troubled because this sort of thing can only hurt the expansion of a niche hobby many people clearly enjoy.

Agree completly with nostyle. Realy bad planning changing key's when you are already taking money from the community based on apparently non final renders, why not just run a IC for a couple of weeks before the GB?.

Can you please post a complete render of the set or at least how al all the modifiers will look.

Very disappointed with this. I much prefer the look of the classic symbol + text GMK legends that was given in the render. This makes mixing and matching with other GMK sets difficult.

So you're on him because he's trying to modify in regards to feedback during the GB?  He could easily not try to take feedback at this time.  It just bugs me that a line about him being disrespectful or dishonest would even be posted, especially as you can easily withdraw at this point with no hard feelings.  How you say things is just as much of an issue as what you're saying.  It appears to me that Sherryton is trying to shorten the time lag between initial concept to final delivery, and I for one, appreciate that effort.

The store page shows images that don't match what participants will be receiving without any kind of notice or disclaimer to this effect.  The group buy disclaimer only mentions that the product hasn't been manufactured yet so there may be unforeseen delays.  I don't believe for a second there's any deliberate attempt at misinformation here (particularly since all the changes make sense), but the page is definitely misleading.

Personally, I like all the changes.

My distinct impression has been the feed back and alteration stage is in large part, the purpose of the interest checks.

Words absolutely are important. That is why I chose mine carefully. There is no mention on the store page of the possibility of changes, there isn't even a link to or any indication of the existence off a discussion thread. The only reason I came upon it was an offhand comment someone made about whats been going on with the Miami Nights set in an interest check for another GB, I was curious as I intended to buy it, so I went hunting. Disrespectful at best and dishonest at worst? Absolutely. Willfully so? That is not for me to say, but it doesn't matter, the result is the same. If I conducted myself in my professional setting in this way I would not only be out of work, I would be sued, and lose the case.

It appears to me that Sherryton is trying to shorten the time lag between initial concept to final delivery, and I for one, appreciate that effort.
I applaud the effort to trim the lag between conceptualization and delivery. I abhor this execution. There is an enormous amount of room to do exactly what the GB organizer has done, and still inform prospective buyers what they are getting into. The attempts to inform buyers in this thread, imho, have been halfhearted at best, and that is being generous. To me, to conduct a transaction in this way shows a complete lack of respect of the people spending money.

I doubt it's a deliberate attempt to misinform on the part of the GB leader, but I say this not knowing the financials between the store and the leader.

Again, I do not know the financials, but to me this GB smacks of an overeager attempt by one party or another to make a quick buck, enabled sadly by the good will of inexperienced apologist enthusiasts of the hobby.

That's the way it's done in many cases.  But just because that's the way it has been done, doesn't mean that's the way it must be done.  Innovation is regularly applied to technology, but where it really comes to the fore is in processes, and I'm glad to see people trying to update those processes in GBs.  And one of the driving factors is in trust, and the erosion of such in the hobby because of people doing things the way that they've always been done, and it not working.

It just bugs me that a line about him being disrespectful or dishonest would even be posted, especially as you can easily withdraw at this point with no hard feelings.  How you say things is just as much of an issue as what you're saying.

If I conducted myself in my professional setting in this way I would not only be out of work, I would be sued, and lose the case.

I'd have to disagree that those words were chosen carefully, but rather out of feelings based on your own approach to the GB.  If anyone has been a part of the GB and has any doubts or bad feelings about it or the changes, they can withdraw.  That shows no disrespect or dishonest actions. 

Are there improvements that could be made to the process.  Most definitely.  Should this be critiqued and the feedback given?  Most definitely, again.

But to characterize it as disrespectful or dishonest when he's been proven to be otherwise in many buys is pretty off base to me.

As far as the financials between the GB runner and the store- that shows that the research done into what is going on has been spurious, as OCo is Sherryton and his fiance.  I think they brought one other person on, but not sure if they're still there.  So almost every item you see on OCo is a buy that he's done himself in one way or the other.

Hey guys, thanks for all the feedback.

We're planning to stick to the render, but we'll update the textless above the arrow keys to text: 'Delete', 'End', 'Pg Dn', and 'Pg Up'.

I hope this will help! I just want to let everyone know the reason why we tried to change what was shown was because not all the words were textless. GMK also brought me that template, and I just wanted to see your opinions on it before we went into full effect. Anyhow, I'll be putting in the order this week with the text above the arrow keys.

What we should do, is to choose some legends, that will be consistently similar in all the future group buys.
Probably the iso ones could be a better choice?? Personally I really like this ISO simbol

We're planning to stick to the render, but we'll update the textless above the arrow keys to text: 'Delete', 'End', 'Pg Dn', and 'Pg Up'.

I hope this will help! I just want to let everyone know the reason why we tried to change what was shown was because not all the words were textless. GMK also brought me that template, and I just wanted to see your opinions on it before we went into full effect. Anyhow, I'll be putting in the order this week with the text above the arrow keys.

Damn, I liked the full icons set. I should have spoken sooner.
If you are planning to stick to the render, does that mean that the diamonds are still in, or will it be Win logo keys anyway?

We'll be using the Diamond.

Great news  :)
I hope that Miami will see a rush of last-minute orders.

Hey guys, we might open up the Miami set for another 2 weeks. A lot of people are helping fund it today. I think we can reach the MOQ with another week.

We will submit the order next week, but leave it open for 2 weeks (June 9th, 2017).

Looks like there's an error on the render, as F1 and F2 have magenta legends, when they should be cyan?

haha, some people who bought Ivan probably bought this too.

I have to make an announcement. Because we are quite busy with the event in Taiwan this week, I haven't placed the order yet. We will surely work with GMK to place the order, but they aren't free for another week. The item should still be on schedule, and I'll make more updates if necessary.

So I made a rough Photoshop from one of Hotkeys Project's pics. The pics already had Sky Dolch skewed dark, so this got me to thinking...

I plan on mixing Miami Nights with Ocean Dolch to make Ocean Drive Miami Beach.  :)

Sky Dolch/Dolch Reborn Alphas can be a little hard to read (for me) depending on the lighting situation, so I think this level of contrast could work very nicely.

I just ordered this set from the website. I am super excited its the final touch to my first keyboard build. I am really glad this set was up for grabs. "crosses fingers" hopefully if it ships tommrow "Monday" I will have it before the end of the week and can get photos of it up before the weekend. I am super super excited. This keyset is going to look steller and its my first GMK key set. I was looking at the SA profile version of this set but cherry is so much better.

Noticed that the set is already on the website. I received a tracking number for my GB order about 4 days ago and it hasn't moved forward from pre-shipment state. Are the sets already being shipped out? Would appreciate your update. Thanks.

UPDATE: Got a response via email and they have finally finished shipping out the orders for this :)
