With this article he is disqualified, because he does not use his own photos.

Also, it is not even a 100% mechanical keyboard!

too short, came late... :?
I would have voted Daedalus, Haata, Lethal Squirrel in declining order.
Just from a quick overview of the linked articles, however difficult to decide whats the real contribution vs pre existing arcticles.
I'm impressed how fast the wiki grew in that short time. Good work, kudos to all authors :)

Yay, second place!


I'll donate next year as well, so keep contributing (or start if you haven't!). Your goal should be to beat me, I'll even help you if you ask! (Topping Daedalus would take serious skillz :lol: )

If I find some time, I might even set up a bounty system for my enormous backlog, separate from contests like this :mrgreen:. So let me know if there is interest in such a thing.

I may be more motivated since all my wikis are now 404 Not Found.

But it's summer and I'm posting from a deck chair on my iPad.

Congratulations to the other winners! Good job!

So, I suppose that after Daedalus and Haata have taken their picks, I will have to fight with Lethal Squirrel to the death over the leftovers ... ;)
