Hi SiegeTowers,
I joined this GB yesterday. and i just saw the shipping using DHL. is it possible to use registered mail instead of DHL? or is there other options?
because in Indonesia DHL have very bad reputation, they charged me with extra cost that more than the value of the package itself.
please just use cheaper service. i don't mind if take longer to arrive.

yes, but please if it possible don't use DHL. DHL in Indonesia is a corrupt company you always have to pay extra fee to get your item even you already pay the shipping cost. especially if they know the value of the item.
i bought 3 t-shirts($20 each) from valve official store with shipping cost and they still charge me $30 extra.
friend of mine bought some item around $150 include shipping and they charge him $70 again here.

i hope there will no problem. but  if it possible to use other shipping method i'll very glad.
thank you.

Man this set is really great, plus free shipping worldwide.  Hopefully it is popular enough to become a Cherry profile at some point.
It would look great on a blue or dark grey case.

the default are the matte ones right? i actually didn't know that i can have them in a semi-gloss finish close to SP's until today but I e-mailed z-frontier about it already. Asked them if the pricing would be affected if i would want to have them in semi-gloss. but if that'd jack the price up i'll just leave it as is to avoid complications with the ones who already paid. Would really want it in semi-gloss tho.

Hi Siegetowers!
Are we too late to add some keys to make this set more compatible with 60% layouts??
I mean: R2 1.5 units backspace and tilde/backslash in blue, plus R3 1.0 units ctrl, alt and fn and/or R4 1.0 units fn.
Last ask: a couple of "accent" keys in an alternative yellow/orange (esc and enter) would turn this in the perfect ultimate set (my personal taste......)
Great one anyway.....

Hi there sputnik. I'm sorry to inform you that such changes are kind of impossible as of the moment. Maxkeys refused to add certain keys because they still haven't done the molds for them. Also just went for simpler colors to avoid over complicating the set. That being said, i hope you still support this group buy. That's all and have a nice day!

I thought so too. That's why my original plan involved compatibility keys such as the hhkb bs and backslash. But when i proposed the desired keys for the set, they told me that i can't have those.

Got word from zfrontier.

"I have talked with boss of Maxkey. He said there is only one finish. Could you confirm that there has been a set with different finish? We may consult him again if you know exactly the set and the finish is different. Thanks! "

i sent him the GH GB page of lime. will wait for his reply.

Yeaah. They said that they can do a glossy finish, but it has to be for a light set. They don't want to do a non matte finish for a dark colored set.

I have bought 3 keysets from Zfrontier now, and I haven't been charged any extra for either of them yet. I'm not saying it can't happen but it hasn't happened to me yet at least. 
Sometimes I get charged with items from the US either by DHL or customs office here in Denmark, but so far no problems from ZF.
