Here's my design for the DT Corner labels. Nothing fancy, just some Stick-On labels for the MEchanicon display cards.

Oh yeah and I added a field for "Remarks" in case you want to add any information to your keyboard. Feel free to update your lists!

EDIT:

I have already transferred drellins keyboards into the master list and simply moved the keyboad kit color and material details into the REMARKS section. This way we get a nice clean display of BRAND and MODEL and potentially get lots of text in the fields for switches (all the modding), keycaps (in case of crazy combinations) and remarks (in case of complicated kits/modding)

but that'S okay i guess because it will still be readable in the end.

DT Corner was LITERALLY a corner!
Thanks to Christian from the Org Team and early Kekstee - thanks very much for saving this corner for the DT stuff even though I was more than an hour late.

I am sorr seebart but there were hardly any vintage boards. Kekstee and I brought a few!
We were missing i$ and 7bit with their vintage collections. And not a single beamspring, seems like no one will take one if I don‘t ...

And again thanks to Christian for introducing me to Michael Schmid from Cherry, I was pretty star struck and couldn‘t have been happier.
It was also great meeting Mr. GMK personally, great opportunity.

Hopefully the DT corner was fun for everyone who participated, thanks again. I think we made a nice impression.

The Cherry boards that made it were really cool though

9009, the multi function 2000, the ancient terminal board...
A WeyTec as well.

Seen some pictures posted on reddit. Always enjoy seeing pictures from these kind of events. DT-corner had some sick keyboards!

Did you found any new boards/switches that you really liked? It would also be interesting to hear about all the tx-cp and how simular (different?) due to different tuning.

Also, very carbon heavy! :D

Although living in Frankfurt I still managed to arrive about an hour late :)
Sadly only on the way home I realized, I had completely forgotten to take pictures. Those many keyboards were a lot to comprehend.
Anyway, it was really great!

Just posted some images in the original thread: other-news-f47/save-the-date-mechanicon ... ml#p387938

As organizers, we had a great time, even though it became waaaay bigger than anticipated.

I really liked the idea with a DT corner. I love vintage keyboards and want to see as many as possible at these events. :D
If you want bring in your own ideas for the event I am very happy to listen and help! :)

It was really nice meeting many of you in person, and tried all the ultra nice customized that were well presented at the DT corner, because of Wodan and DreLLin and many others.

@Kingnestea
I still really want to see the "key room" - the room built by that collector for > 100 key cap sets you mentioned.
