Will you be putting together an order list spreadsheet?

The order information will be included in the invoice.
I think it's not necessary to display everyone's ID and options in public.

is there a side - profile view? Thanks!

Quickly check my phone album and didn't find one. Here's a side view of Leaf 80 prototype I shared before. Leaf 60 is pretty much the same.

Wait just to clarify, you will offer the PC plate in dedicated WKL layout? (without the cutout for the winkey?)

You didn't hear me wrong. No cutouts for WK, stepped/non-stepped capslock, 2u BS.

The alps plate should omit the winkey opening as well.  Please consider  :thumb:

With WK cutouts: no problem on alu/opaque cases, having the opportunity to use win keys.

Without WK cutouts: not ideal for clear cases if you don't use win keys.

Hard decision

Will the original WKL plate still retain the cutouts (as shown in the image) that would be under the blockers as well?

The original plate will stay as is. Yep, I will post the new plate's pic later on.

Singa plates are pretty open on the bottom row. The WKL PC looks fine. I think that the plates for this run have been a little over thought.

the less open space in plates the better tbh

the more open space there is in the bottom row, the more prone plate mount switches will be to twisting, which is more annoying than thinking for 45 seconds about what layout you're gonna build your board in

Looking at the Alps Plate, it seems Iíll be able to use this with AEK II keycaps, correct? No need for a 7u spacebar, right?

I don't think 6.5u spacebar will work.
AEK caps work best on curved top cases like on Lunar.

What I'm saying is that a tweaked version of this plate could've been offered... Delete ISO and make sure it has 2u/split bs and normal/stepped caps. Even if the squares are open behind the corner/wkl blockers, it will still look fine (like Singa). No need for all these other VERY specific plates.

there are different plate offerings because the holes look weird under PC

i thought that image was from the OP

senter has run his share of GBs and i trust him to handle sorting all the wacky plates

this is basically a non-issue

The universal plate will work with the hotswap PCB if we want to use it for a full layout, right? It says HHKB/WKL but I would want the full layout.

It will be more resistant to tarnishing. Raw brass tends to leave fingerprints from the oils in your hands that don't really wipe off.

I find this very annoying for one of my brass sandblasted plates that I purchased off someone else.. It looks nice but the tarnishing it just annoying especially when they're not my fingerprints. Anyways do you know what you use to clean them off and get them refinished?

Are all those options supposed to be there for the weight? I'm having a hard time imagining a clear PC weight.

EDIT: After reading again, I'm assuming these are for the leaf shape accessory/logo on the bottom?

EDIT2: If you can get the whole weight in clear PC, do you have a render or photo of a completely clear PC build? (case, plate, weight, leaf accessory). Just trying to imagine what it would look like.

Hi, I really wanted to join but a bit concerned regarding shipping to my country. Will you use a door-to-door shipping method like DHL Express or do I have to pick it up in our local post once it arrives? Customs fees and loooong processing time in our country is a bit of a mess, which is why I asked.

I hope you can provide more info on the shipping proxy that you will use. Thanks, Senter! I'm really looking forward to this!

Yes, I'll use DHL Express, not the local DHL tho. Hongkong DHL is cheaper than in mainland China. All the packages will be shipped to a Hongkong DHL proxy. Then the proxy will distribute the packages to every country.

Thank you for the clarification, Senter! Will finalize the choices then place my order later. GL on this GB!  :thumb:

There's an upgrade price and an extra price. The extra price seems reasonable... The upgrade price does not, seeing as your giving up the base versions.

Agree, I followed this through IC, and didnít expect a brass plate+weight to cost so much more than the base kit.

I was kinda ok with the plate. It at least serves a function and is in line with how much brass plates nornally cost. Still a little disappointing but fair imo

The brass weight on the other hand....
