Few questions:
- What's the difference in shipping between Large Letter and Parcel?
- The money will be deducted immediately or after the MOQ is reached?

Thanks!

- For this product there is no difference, your product will still be packaged as a parcel.
- Immediately, but if the GB is unsuccessful you will be refunded as soon as it closes.

It isn't clear from the links above that EU orders are from Caps Unlocked, and US orders are from Cartel. I mistakenly placed an order via the first link.

It would be great if you could check my PM, and also update the post above to be clearer which order link is for which region.

Thanks!

Not trying to be snide, but surely the price being in £ or $ makes it fairly clear?

Given that the post doesn't say anything about ordering from different regions, I assumed it was just two possible sites to order from.

A simple "EU:" and "US/CAN:" might help to clarify.

How do these Group Buy threads work?  Where does the exposure come from, if the thread is pushed to the second page and isn't updated in the google sheet of current group buys?

The google sheet isn't well maintained, nor is the thread of 'active group buys and preorders'.  Exposure has to come from word of mouth, posting to reddit r/mk and r/mechmarket, being active on discord, getting bumps in your GB thread to keep it relevant and near the top, etc.  With so many keycap group buys having run in 2017 and 2018, sets don't sell themselves anymore.. gotta actively advertise.

I think more renders with different angles, case colors and and layouts help a lot, even for a simple set like this one. Specially some using the novelty caps. 
This same feedback was given on Top clack when the set was discussed

I'd really like to see this happen - I think I'm in for 2 just because the colorway is so broadly useful. Agree that some additional promotional effort, including more renders or cross-promotion (a render of this on the black M-60A could really grab some attention) would be helpful, and/or extending the GB period.

The best part about this set is you can omit the orange modifier and pair it with accents from just about any other set. Nothing wrong with a basic black-on-black.

Trying to bump my order to two kits on cartel.ltd, but I don't see a way to do it without needing to place a whole new order. I sent a message via the contact form but if anyone has already done this, let me know how you went about it!

I know it is not suitable to say this here, because this GB is launching now.
N9 and CR' s RGB values are (49,51,55) and (5,5,5) respectively. In 3D renders , the two colors are a bit hard to distinguish. Now that the two colors exist in GMK color card, it is easier and better to get samples from GMK in comparison with custom colors.
That would be possible to promote this GB success.
Anyway, good luck with this GB.

Aren't the Exent keys the same color codes? Those exist in reality, why not just look at them:

Reposting my thoughts from Reddit:

Quote
Have you considered pulling the GB and re-running with better/different marketing and different kits? That worked out really well for SA By the Sea, which was objectively improved after its relaunch.

Breaking out a separate orange accent kit might be nice. It's a bit "in between ideas" right now.

Also the name leads people to think it's about Doom the game, and they probably come away disappointed (as opposed to Black-on-black).

GMK Doomsday might have been a more distinct name.
