How is the color of alpha? On render they look greenish, almost glow in the dark. Accurate?

Hi Jessica,

How come i got refund for the space bar kit? Does it comes with the base kit or we have to purchase it separately? It doesn't show on the web page anymore
PS: Oh, nvm..... it said full refund so i thought i got the total refund but actually its only the shipping

Thanks

Yup, if you order the base set and order the spacebars later, I refund your shipping on the spacebars cause I'll end up just shipping them together anyways :)

The colours will be a pale green. I've tried my hardest with Oblotzky to get accurate colours in the renders :)

you don't have to be prepared to order; you can pkace the order and just not pay when you get to that step in order to see the price of shipping.

ABS typically feels smoother than pbt in my experience

ABS is a bit more slippery than PBT, but it definitely feels high quality.
The profile between Cherry and Leopold's caps is virtually identical. I think Leopold's caps are a little taller but they're basically Cherry profile

From my perspective, yes, ABS will feel more "grippy". I think of PBT as more satiny and ABS more glossy (and thus more grippy).
I'm just about 2 years into my MK adventure and finally got a GMK set with the >Terminal_ group buy. They (GMK) have easily become my favorite caps to type on.

They are not re-running Plum.  They just have some sets in stock for replacements that they didn't need.  Or they could be sets they found in the warehouse unaccounted for.  Definitely not re-running, and be there early if you want to get anything.

It started around 9009 and ending close to laser. It was a difficult time for it for sure.

Have at it :)

I will be completely honest here. I am being very realistic when I say I don't believe this set will hit MOQ in the designated timeframe, and extending it will accomplish nothing because we're in Laser Season, so all other sets are gettin' fkd.

If the set doesn't hit MOQ by the 13th as planned, full refunds will go out either same day, or early next day.
This is a really unfortunate reality but there simply wasn't a better time for this set for almost 6 months and I thought it'd be worth a shot now, and possibly be worth revisiting at a later time :)

Thank you all for the support on this set.

This is most unfortunate. I believe this to be one of the best GMK colorways. I hope it hits MoQ, or at the very least gets attempted again at a later date.

Jessica, have you thought about running the set through a more established vendor? That would up your numbers noticeably.

Get in the Massdrop Queue for GMK sets and it'll hit MOQ and then some. Except for a few exceptions it seems it is getting harder and harder to hit MOQ on unique GMK sets unless you go through Massdrop, Originative, and a couple other sellers. Then you can even add on some novelties and support for other layouts (ErgoDox, split spacebar kit, etc).

Unless something has changed MassDrop only tries to make 15% profit which seems less than some other buys I've seen lately (still can't believe less than 12 hours after group buy ended I payed a premium for Led Zep set.)

It's definitely harder to hit moq as an independent seller because there are too many sets being run. Proposed supply outpaces demand for key sets right now, and without the visibility that a large vendor supplies, you're going to struggle at times to attract a diluted pool of buyers.

This is disappointing.

The set really looks great, I just don’t think there was much effort getting the news out there/reminders. I really wanted it, as the set was pretty rad.

On a side note, please bring back the window icons, Jess! :3

Well bugger. I'll definitely still be in whenever you decide to run it again though. Probably my favorite set overall at this point. And if you're looking for a time to run it, spring next year would probably mean we get it around fall/Halloween 2018 which would be nice :)

I really wanted in on this but the timing just didn't work for me with 9009 and Laser dropping around the same time. I assume there were more like me that would've helped this make MOQ if it was run at a better time. Hopefully if this runs again it will be when there's less competition and with a more established vendor. It's a great looking set and I would love to see it come to fruition.

Hello everyone, sorry for the late update. Just got off work from my new job.

Necro has not made the MOQ of 250. I will spend tomorrow morning, and afternoon if needed, issuing refunds.

Thank you all for believing in this set and maybe we'll run it again at a later date when the stars align.

So if you don't have your refund at least pending by tomorrow night (24 hours from the time this message is posted) please send an email to Dylan@DMKeys.com

Yesss, please try running again at a later date. Didn't have enough room in the budget this time but this is one of my favorite sets to appear, would definitely join in!

Hey everyone,

As of now, all refunds have been issued through Shopify. Hopefully there are no issues with these.

If you have any issues with your refund, please email Dylan@DMKeys.com

We will do everything in our power to make this a very smooth process, should any issues arise.

Again, thank you all for the support. It kinda hurts that this set didn't make it, but I hope some day later it'll come to fruition.

I'm gonna leave this thread open for one week in case anyone has questions or problems they want me to address here.

Bad luck Jessica, sorry to see this didn't meet MOQ, definitely a wonderful colorway.  I was sad to get the refund notification this morning.

I agree with others on this thread, getting market visibility is getting tougher and there is a glut of key sets (like you say it's Laser season!)

Hope this runs again, I've just been excited about this set since Yuri GMK, and nothing else has been very interesting.

Thank you for a no nonsense handling of the GB.

We had to wait for funds to clear into the PayPal account. That means when you get the refund, you get the moment straight away, or after 5-7 days. Sorry about the delay but they've all been refunded now.

This is such a nice set, but for some reason, everyone talks about the fact that it arrived at a bad time ( I purchased both 9009 and Laser), but no one mentions the absurd price of this set. That was what turned me off, and I followed it from the start.

The price wasn't that insane for what was there. These were custom colors and gmk recently raised their prices. Also laser was run on massdrop and they get huge numbers. That really lowers the price. In fact if you want to compare laser prices to this set you should look at the price of laser at the first drop point which was $140. Which is basically the same as this set. It's only after 2500 people bought laser that the price dropped.

EDIT: also gmk camping's estimated price is $175 so again the price is alright. Definitely not cheap but fair imo.

Biggest issue with that is that if people pay through Paypal, and it takes say, 9 weeks to get enough orders and production time is 16 weeks out, that's past Paypal's standard 6 month buyer protection and I know a lot of people would be turned off by that.
However, I am not opposed to taking the route of "This is staying open till make it"

Possible, yes. Tricky though, simply due to the fact that you can't always rely on people to keep their finances in a state to support a GB. It's not off the table, I'd just have to figure out a way to do it that I am happy with

Understandable. Maybe doing something like giving a few weeks or a months notice before charging participants once the GB is close to or has reached MOQ could help alleviate that, giving the participants that need to shuffle money around some time to do so before getting charged. Of course, this would just extend the length of the GB so not sure whether that'd be more or less helpful to the cause. Either way, great looking set that I hope comes to fruition at some point

possible for split-space support this time around?

I also think the word 'Run' as an alternative 1u Fn key would be a little cool detail.

Yes to the split space support! It'll be the same kit used by Yuri and other recent sets  :thumb:
And as an avid HHKB user (and by avid I mean I literally type on an HHKB every single day of my life and will never change that), I am in love with the Fn legend, personally.

However, for a set I have a concept for in the nearishly future, I think Run could actually be a pretty cool legend for it...

1.25u R4 fn key pleeeeease  :D

That's sorta what the 1.25u Menu key is supposed to serve as :)

I understand, but there are quite a few boards that would mean having both a 1u fn and the menu key on together and it'd look a bit odd

Are you opposed to just replacing Menu with Fn? I've seen this done before on some GMK sets

Sweet!
I too personally love the Fn legend, I was suggesting as an extra alternative, not replace because I thought 'run' could link in with the necro theme :) Also any possibility for an extra 1u Fn for dual Fn users? Hack key is also an alternative as GMK already have moulds for it.

And has there been any considerations for R4 1.25u and/or 1.5u novelties?

I'm not opposed to it, just from a purely aesthetic point of view, if you put both Fn's (1u and 1.25u) on it'd look weird and a bit redundant but obviously that's just my point of view.
I am more than willing to consider the change though

As of now, no plans for 1.25/1.5u novelties. I'm still playing around though, seeing what feels good.

I can go ahead and announce this now:

zFrontier will be the Asian proxy for this set, cause I know lots of people have had good experiences with them.

Happy to see this resurrecting.  One of the most interesting colorways I've seen (right up there with Plum).  I'm looking forward to whatever your next set might be; you're setting the bar pretty high!

I can't decide if I'll go in on the buy.  March 30 does happen to be my birthday... hmmm..

Jessica,

This set looks great, awesome work!  As another user pointed out, i would like to see you drop the purse capslock and replace with down arrow.  But aside from that i love the set and am in for 1 when it opens.   :D

If nothing else, I like to think I make weirdly pleasant colourways.

As for the caps lock key, I'm still torn. I'm gonna pester GMK and see if they have like, other icons that might be available for it and see if they have something else I like more, because I don't care for either the purse-lock OR down arrow. Both just feel awkward and clunky in basically any set. Tentatively though, the plan is to change the purse to the down arrow as that seems to be a commonly preferred alternative and I'm fine with that compromise as I have no opinion about either.

split space is 2.25, 1.25, 2.75

at least i think that's what the standard is
QFR (62g blacks) | MJ2 TKL | Realforce 87U | G81-3000 "Schumiboard" | Varmilo Bulgogiboard (Keycon 104) | KBD75 | MIRA | Weaven (MOD-M)
