Re: Cherry Mechanical Keyboard Switch Guide!

Spambots are getting smarter: mining the forum for content and posting a snippet from another board where the same keywords are common. Nice catch. Why is it that bots seem to be more common on deskthority, but yet I don't really seem to encounter them on keebtalk or r/mk as much? It seems pretty w...

Re: Need help choosing a new mechanical keyboard

Also, I see that your main mouse is the g502, do you mind sharing about it, as I really like the button placement that it has, but was slightly put off by how some people are complaining about it being rather heavy. What do you think about it? The g502 is my main mouse as well. Bought it exclusivel...

Re: Need help choosing a new mechanical keyboard

Personally, if I were you, I'd head down to the nearest large electronics store, as they often will have keyboards that you can try out. After deciding the type of switch you like, I recommend that you get a board like the e-element z77/z88 (or any of those variants) on aliexpress with the switches ...

Are those the taihao white and black alps compatible keycaps? What do you think of them? I was thinking of getting those for a tkl I am building.

Re: Omron75, the year of B3G-S omrons

Sweet build! Was wondering about why the cut-out enter key? Was it due to clearance? I'm pretty new here, so do pardon me if the question I asked is common knowledge around these parts.

Edit: Also, what was that IBM badged board you had in the inspirations?

If you don't mind using outemu black switches, you could consider these. They are extremely cheap at 10 for around 1 usd. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1-5-10pcs-Edition-Mechanical-Keyboard-Black-Switch-Gaming-Keyboards-For-Tablet-Desktop-Sticker-Keyboard-Translucent/33000204222.html?spm=a2g0s.893...

Re: Alps Appreciation

The Tai-Hao sets only come with one type of Caps Lock; there are no alt keycaps in the sets. Tai-Hao do sell loose stepped Caps Lock ones, but only black ones from what I remember. There are five sets off the top of my head; Dolch red, Dolch brown, black (don't think you can get those anymore), Mia...

Re: linear-modded Alps SKCM cream damped switches: spring resistance & MX equivalent

I would say the best thing is to see iif anyone is going to be selling nexus sliders as they are alps sliders with mx stems so the keycaps will fit but maintaining teh feel of the alps I believe the nexus sliders do not support the dampening pads like the sliders in the cream damped, so you may hav...
