[IC] SA Troubled Minds Round 2
« on: Fri, 09 March 2018, 15:11:16 »
SA Troubled Minds

Waitlist on Kono Store: https://kono.store/products/sa-troubled-minds-keycap-set

We are working with thesiscamper to explore another group buy for Troubled Minds - with a few revisions. The kits are not finalized yet, but we want to get a feel for how many people would be interested in another run, as SA keycap buys from Signature Plastics require a very long advance timeline. The set will be SA Doubleshot ABS plastic and the custom modifiers are currently being explored.

If you have suggestions or questions about the set - please join the discussion here!

Here are some awesome renders from thesiscamper to show off the set.





The keycap set is not finalized yet - thesiscamper will be adding additional novelties over the next few weeks.



Alphas


Custom Modifiers


ErgoDox Blanks


ISO Kit


Modifiers + Numpad


Ortholinear Kit


Tsangan Kit

@jdcarpe - If we had designed the set - like the Infinity DSA set, we would probably do it in a vendor forum. This is a community set from thesiscamper that we are just helping him out with, so we felt this was a better home for it!

Yeah, itís all good Andrew. It was just a small jab at the mods for moving stuff out of the IC thread. I wish all of I:C and Kono partners the best of luck!

I reported this thread not because I disagree with the content, but as an act of disapproval about what moderation of Geekhack have been doing to Interest Checks recently, selectively pushing some specific authors to obscure realms of the forum. And I recommend others to do the same.

#BringBackTheGoodICs

Looking forward to this keycap set and the other ones too that got moved too, thanks for the effort guys!

@Purp - Is this the wrong place for an interest check for Troubled Minds?

The last Interest Check for this was here - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=75345.0 - so it seems fairly appropriate place to post Round 2, I'm not sure why it would need to be reported?

We can directly link to the waitlist page - https://mailchi.mp/kono/troubled-minds - which is not on a Kono Store domain if that makes things easier for mods?

This is the correct place.

A group of people are a bit annoyed as the moderators of Geekhack would like all interest checks that will be a group buy on Massdrop to be in the Massdrop Vendor section, not the normal interest check subforum.

this is most certainly in the right place...please don't report it...i live under a bridge in the ic forum...i need this in my life

i am curious about the intellectual property agreement md may have with sp...oblostky says md plans to roll out r2 some time this year

graffiti mod upgrade i am down...else it's really more of a race to who drops live first

I don't quite recall saying that MD is going to run another round, considering I knew for a long time now that TM was re-running outside of MD. Thesiscamper is in charge of running or not running the set, so there is nothing to worry about.

In for Alphas, Green Mods, Novelties and what appears to be a hint at a Purple Modifiers kit! Together with Pulse R3, it looks like my wallet will get quite some usage soon.

You mention long lead times for SP SA, but I recently saw someone mention that it's down to six months now, is that not actually the case?

True, but it's at least still way better than the lead times we were getting last year.

I also like this idea.  Did a super lazy copy/paste job to see what it'd look like with a fully green top row as well as green ~` and |\, and I think it looks spiffy:



(I know not everyone likes having mod colored ~` and |\ but the F row being uniform looks nice anyway)

I'll consider this, although most people usually go for the traditional color distribution. This won't be going through Massdrop so it won't make sense to make kits too big or make too many kits.

That stylized H seems too thick compared to the rest of the legends and the stylized J.

I'll see about making it conform to the other novelties more, thanks.

@thesiscamper  will we get the non standard layout adapter kit?

It's shown in the kit render, used in a few of the keyboard renders and pretty much mandatory nowadays. I'll go ahead and answer this question as yes for him.
