Joined the GB on Mechboard UK on Friday, unfortunately I realised I need the money for later day.
Sent email to them on Saturday and no reply yet... properly is out of their working hour?

All sorted :)

I tried to join the GB on mechboards but was unfortunately unable to only buy the kits I want, like the other proxies offers.

I have sent them an email but haven't heard back yet.

From Donutcables:
Base 183/250
150 $160
250 $145

Spacebar 50/100
100 $54
150 $48
250 $42

Grey 49/100
100 $58
150 $53
250 $49

Novelties 100/150
100 $70
150 $58
250 $48

Wow looks like there was a decent bump recently.  Base has easily hit MOQ and who knows maybe it'll hit the next price drop.  Novelties seem safe to at least be made as well!

With the deadline extension, I feel like I should get the novelties. I like them, but don't $70 like them.

So I dunno why nobody mentioned this, but why are the alphas in the 60% portion of the keyset not consistent with the numpad's? i.e. white alphas, black numpad keys -- can we change that?

It would be nice if we could get these keys rendered on larger keyboard layouts: 1800/CP, 96-key, full-size, and Southpaw/reverse numpad full size.

One of the reason why im hesitant on joining this. And the background makes the render for the base set really hard to see.

Frankly, I would love the OP to chime in on this. Both on some neutral background renders (or like those ones with keyboards on desks, like Janglad's), and on reasoning as to why the kit is designed as such (whether it was considered at all, or overlooked).

I actually never realized that. now that I looked at it. it does have an adverse effect to black out the whole numpad. maybe it was overlooked or a design choice by dead.

I noticed that before and I just thought it was a design decision.  It would be nice to have that cleared up and to get some renders without the black background.

So I actually asked Dead_Encryption on his channel, and he said that it indeed was a deliberate choice, as this was how he pictured the set. He wanted to go for a dark theme, that corresponded closely to how he imagined it in Persona. Here's a render of Noxary's 280/220 that he shared to demo the idea:



I'm personally unsure if I will stick with it, but I would have appreciated having a matching alpha numpad, frankly, although I suppose I can just stick to not using numpad-inclusive layouts for this set.



Do we have an update on MOQ inclusive of all proxies?

I only really have one keyboard that has a number pad, all my mother boards are either 65% or TKL so this doesn't really bother me still gonna get this set.
Thanks for clearing this up for other GB members.

So, when I ordered this I didn't realize that the numpad was all black, I was going to use it on a full board, so I kinda regretted my order. I sent an email to Mechboards on Monday, and no response yet, so not sure what to do. I'm guessing that they're just busy?

Current numbers, which might be a bit higher since I'm waiting on final update from the proxies while my page is still open until at least midnight PST:

Base - 223
Spacebar - 55/100
Grey/Shadow - 57/100
Novelties - 113
Rama Red/Black - 104
Rama Polished - 40/50

Base kit had a huge push the past two days with over 20 orders in that time. Spacebars and Grey/Shadow could use a bit of a hand getting where they need to be, though. I'll be talking with GMK about getting them made even if they don't quite hit, but if you're at all interested in them then now is the time to act! Novelties are good to go along with the red/black Rama-sans. Polished Rama-sans could use a bit of a hand too but they're nearly there.

We've got just a bit more to go here, so hopefully with the updated proxy numbers we can get those kits the numbers they really deserve! We're also super close to the 250 price drop point, so keep that in mind too as you consider ordering!

I am curious as to what the R4 2U Black Morgana Novelty is intended to be used for, as 2U keys in row 4 don't seem to be too common?

Relatedly, would it work as the + on the numpad, or would it be a conflicting profile with the numpad enter?

I'm pretty sure it's for numpad 0.

I agree it is probably for numpad 0, but I'm really glad it is there because I'm planning on using it as the space bar on my ortho keyboard.  I was also in for the space bars, but I don't know if they'll get made.

Just a quick update, invoices might not be going out from me quite yet. After hearing back from the proxies our numbers on the Space and Grey kits are enough that we're gonna crunch some numbers together and see if we can jointly push those kits to MOQ. I definitely think it's worth the time/effort to try and push them since that will reduce the number of drops from people that ordered them and reduce the risk of other kits running into number issues as a side effect. I'm also awaiting a response from GMK that may also help those kits.

We've been waiting on GMK to get back to us, and they do have a reputation for their communications sometimes being comparable to with the SP SA queue. We did hear back from them today, though not quite what I wanted to hear,  and I'm right now working on getting the invoices ready to be sent out. I unfortunately can't say yet whether the Grey/Spacebar kits have succeeded for sure, but as long as all the invoices including them are paid up then there's a good chance that GMK will produce them with the extras we're planning.
