First off, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that helped, contributed, sent energy, and jumped in on this GB. It has been a massive success, especially considering that April has been RICH with many great keysets. I'm floored by the amount of support on this set!

Final numbers are still coming in, but we are expecting to roll over that 1200 mark once we have the final numbers from all proxies.
Base - 1188
Midnight - 252
Signs - 787
Blocks - 550

We've also run the raffle on the 1,000 mark keyset giveaway, and the winner is Geekhacks own user: Eyedrop. Congrats! Novelkeys will be reaching out to you to coordinate :).



Extra Keys
Please make sure you cast you vote on what extra keys you'd like to see added to the base: https://forms.gle/XmVwckTf4Lys3cx68.

Currently, additional accents (yellow enter, teal arrows) is in the lead! I'll be collecting feedback through the weekend, and lock the kit down early next week.



Keyforge
The keyforge artisan form will remain open until April 30th, to allow everyone time to get their entry in. winners will be chosen and invoiced shortly after

Does the 40 percent compatibility mentioned in the extra keys form mean ortholinear 40 percent (everything 1u) or staggered (something like 1.25 R3 Tab and 1.75 R3 Enter)?

Also just wanted to add my congratulations for such a successful GB. Novelties and deskmats in particular were such a home run! Now comes the least fun part haha :/

Because we only have the availability to add a few keys, it would have to be the latter of those.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!


After analyzing the data on the extra keys form, the overall single winner was to add in some additional accents. However, in talking with both Mike @ NovelKeys and GMK, we also wanted to help out the other areas that were voted high, especially with some of the layout keys that help this set actually get on to more boards.

I've ended at the following extra keys.



  • Yellow Return - To give a proper mod color accent to this key
  • Teal Arrow Cluster - This gives another option for arrows, as well as provides a much requested accent for those that got the midnight kit
  • "N" Logo Novelty - My personal mark, but also isn't out of place sitting next to the current novelties
  • 2U Shift - This will give proper compatibility to those using the "compressed" 60% layout, as well as some smaller boards
  • 1.25 Tab / 1.75 Return - These keys will help give correct row-profile and legend coverage to some popular sub-60% boards

I'm absolutely thrilled that we'll be able to get in this many extra keys, as i believe it gives a little bit back to every major category that was voted for.

Neph - I submitted the raffle form just now but I honestly have no idea if I'd already done it earlier during the GB (with so many GB raffles going on I didn't keep track properly of which ones I was entering).

It would be great if a multiple entry didn't necessarily disqualify you (but of course only a single entry should be used). If not, then sucks to be me.

Thanks for your kind consideration.

Quick update on the Keyforge raffle. The form is now CLOSED, and the raffle will be taking place soon. We will still have to cross reference the wins with orders from all the vendors, so it may take a few days. Promise i will update everyone when invoices are finally going out! We will also announce the two winners of their free cap! Fingers crossed everyone!

We also FINALLY have all the numbers for this run! Across all vendors and extras, here's what we pulled!
