[GB] GMK Solarized Dark - COMPLETE
« on: Tue, 20 June 2017, 22:18:11 »
Update:
All the trackings have been sent out.

A major number of the tracking numbers have not been updated (pending). Our USPS pickup person has left USPS, so today, we'll be taking these to USPS. You will see it move tomorrow.

--

If you're waiting for a replacement keycap, you will get the tracking today after I finalize the list. You'll get tracking via email on file. If you've changed addresses since then, please notify support@keyclack.com . I will be holding the replacement keycap shipments for a day before dropping them off at USPS.

--

This GB should be marked to be completed in 2-3 days.

Do the asian and european proxies have separate MOQ's or are they all in the same Keyclack MOQ? Also, will the main Keyclack group buy page order quantities be updated with orders through proxies?

Is there any way to confirm what shipping to Australia from the Asian proxy would be?
I am a bit worried about ordering through a translated taobao but if they can confirm shipping and that it will be ok to order then I may go for it.

What happened to the text only modifiers? (like the ones in Oblivion)

Were they rejected by the designer's preference or is there a wider, community preference for GMK's standard legends?

I'm not such a fan of the standard GMK text+icon, I much prefer the text only or icons only when there is something like Cyrillic. Perhaps I am in the minority?

Hi all,

I ordered the base and ergodox kit last night, but the keyclack website did not send me to paypal to authorize the payment.  When I ordered GMK oblivion from keyclack, I was sent to the paypal site while placing my order to pre-authorize the charges.  Did I do something wrong on the Solarized order?  Or should I just expect to need to authorize the paypal charges once the GB is done?  Just a bit confused as the payment process seems to be different between oblivion and solarized.

Thanks for any help

I don't remember them ever being brought up in the IC, were they? IMO it depends on the set if they are appropriate or not, and also the designers choice. I did a poll nontheless and it came out at 60% for text only IIRC, but it might come out different for other designs.

I believe you authorized PayPal in connection to your KeyClack account of sorts. I changed (canceled and reordered) my order for the SKOG TKL like 5 times, couldn't decide on colors, and I was never asked to authorize again after the initial order.

I ordered just fine last night and was taken to PayPal... I believe keyclack allows you to pay by CC,  maybe that's what happened? @😂@

I'm not privy to the exact agreements between them, but as I understand it the proxies' orders will be added to the total in the end, and all of them will be counted as one order so even if one proxy has eg. 30 orders and the other two combine for 220, that means MOQ is reached.

Also, will the main Keyclack group buy page order quantities be updated with orders through proxies?

If I remember correctly they will all be added together in the end, but we'll be giving updates to the community while the group buy is active.

I looked into it some more, and you are right.  When you pay for something at Keyclack with paypal for the first time, you need to pre-authorize the purchase.  When you do so, there is a text blurb saying something along the lines of "Use bank account XXXX for all future keyclack purchases."  Since I had already done that with oblivion, I don't need to do it with solarized dark.  Not sure if paypal will ask me to authorize the transaction or not once the GB is done, but at least it looks like the order went through correctly.

Thanks for your help Oblotzky.

...brought up in the IC, were they?

It was, but I admit I scratched my head for a bit wondering if I had just conflated the Solarized discussion with the Oblivion discussion. I had to go back and read from the start, but it is on the IC thread, from the first page.

...poll ... at 60% for text only IIRC

A closer split than I would've predicted, it seemed like enthusiasm was really high for the text only. Useful tidbit of information anyway for future designs :)


The three of us have discussed this and agreed to use icon+text mods.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was sure Solarized was going to be text only, but probably it was the Oblivion discussion that made me think it was certain.


Also, will the main Keyclack group buy page order quantities be updated with orders through proxies?

If I remember correctly they will all be added together in the end, but we'll be giving updates to the community while the group buy is active.

MyKeyboard say this on the buy page: "When completing your order for a kit, we will charge your PayPal account immediately.  At the end of the group buy, we will send you an invoice with the final pricing and refund the difference.  We are currently not able to authenticate future payments."

Can we take this as confirmation the proxies will be getting the price break benefits when/if the quantities are met?

For Oblivion, #1 MOQ was dictated by combining the numbers, so 150 US and 100 Asian orders would meet GMK's MOQ of 250. Regarding #2, the asian numbers were not added to KeyClack's page at the end. #2 might be different of course for this GB.

So let's say I just discovered this and am too lazy to research.

In the renders the mods with the colored legends look dark gray, but the GMK render shows it as more green. Are the mods greenish or grayish?

Once you get authorized, you sign a billing agreement with us basically, and you're good to go from there.

All prices are honored. It is a group effort. If you choose to order through a proxy, the price is honored, according to the break. Everyone has a slightly different price because of taxes, etc that each country has to work with.

For the comment about adding the numbers are the end, that is something we will do. Oblivion was a special case, in which collectively with our proxy, we met with 250 MoQ for the White base set. We manually review the numbers after and see if the numbers are good to go.

Hope that clears things up.

It's a Google server issue :-X

Yeah, internal server error.

Not crazy about the colors in the GMK render. I prefer the bluer/grayer tones of the other renders. On top of that, the color hex sample looks like something in-between the two. I'm rather confused about what this will actually look like.

GMK renders are almost never accurate. Thesiscamper renders are where its at.

Hmm, I actually find it the opposite actually.

Have you seen what a GMK render of CMYK looks like for example?

These colors are not even remotely accurate on my calibrated oled display or my iPad Pro. I feel like if that looks accurate to you your display is calibrated way way off. Like you must be massively ramping color/contrast.

That's just one example. Gmk renders for recent sets (hydro and plum) are pretty close to what the sets actually look like. Thesiscamper's render for plum is not even remotely close to what the set actually looks like. But renders are renders, just gotta wait for the set to actually come out to see what it really looks like \_(ツ)_/

Edit: GMK's render of honeywell is pretty spot on too

I'm still confused...

The GMK Honeywell Render for example:



Doesn't look anything like this to me:



Plum Render:



Plum GMK Render:



Plum:




One of the things you have to keep in mind, especially with tans, is the spectrum of your light is going to have a tremendous impact on how something looks.

Hydro GMK Render:



Hydro Render:



Hydro:






To my eyes the GMK renders are ALWAYS less accurate.

For hydro the blues are undersaturated. The gray is oversaturated.

My best guess is GMK is rendering the images in something other than normal RGB/YUV. An extended color space or something, and then not doing a good converstion. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there were some way to filter the GMK renders to make them all accurate (with the same filter) because to me, they all seem flawed in the same way.

Interesting lighting you are choosing there. Like I said, no renders are accurate lol, they are renders. All I'm saying GMK has been closer imo. The GMK renders seem very bright and a lot of white in it.

Do you have examples that are different? If I'm wrong I'd love to be corrected. I just googled photos. I don't own plum and my hydro hasn't shown up yet.

Your response makes it out like you think I'm trying to win an argument. Just to be clear... I am not.

I could care less which one of us is correct. I just have seen nothing that would lead me to trust the GMK renders. If I'm lacking information, I'd love to know. Rather than just saying it's wrong, I'd love to know what specifically you think is wrong. Which render. What is wrong with the render? Etc.

I'm not trying to invalidate your opinion, just understand where it comes from.
