START OF CONUS Switch Try Bag TOUR

THIS IS A TEMPORARY THREAD. A NEW ONE WILL BE MADE BY THE SINKLIST MANAGER!

Managed by : Ascaii

Subscription starts : 22-1-2013
Subscription ends : 22-2-2013


If you want to participate, PM Ascaii your name and address, he will manage it from there.

NOTE : the sinklist manager will guide the process for you, he will tell you what to do and what he needs from you.

A SurpriseBag will be shipped with the sinklist item. If you like something that's inside, you are allowed to swap it for something equal in value, preferably more so the total value of the bag increases. The contents of the bag are for the sinklist manager so he can be rewarded for his efforts.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of today , I am proud to present : The Switch Try Bag version 2. It took me a very long time, but I finally decided I collected/harvested enough switches to let this project fly.

The first round is opened for CONUS/EUROPE/WORLDWIDE and this first participants round closes in about two weeks. The bags will be sent out at 16 July 2012. After the bags are sent out, 3 separate threads will be created in this section to track the items.


A Surprise bag has been added to this sinklist item : if you like the item inside, remove it and replace it with something at least equal in value and preferably of higher value. So you DON'T need to put something else into it, if you have nothing as trade leave it as it is and the next one in line can use it(!)

Very nice!
You might want to put the contents of the bag in a [ code ] [/ code] field, so you can have it nicely indented (alps: .. cherry mx: ...).

The switches are in the mail, hopefully you'll get them soon. Glad my omrons and low profile alps are being used for something that benefits all Deskthority members :D

heya, is this basically a try it out send it on job like the other, if so, i would like to participate? would like to take them to my local LAN meet for the guys to try em out, LAN is on the last weekend of this month.

and if they ever end up getting sold then im also interested, might make an uber sample board out of them, 2 more switches and i could use a boards 33 main keys as the sample area, simple rubber dome would be 32, one more to go.

also it might be an idea to label the keys/switches so we all know what is what (for those of us who are not quite so expert in the rarer switches)

Update : QWERkeys from www.qwerkeys.co.uk has been kind enough to donate some samples of their offerings. They will be added to the two switch try bags. The third switch try bag ( worldwide ) will probably not be sent out since there seems to be no interest outside Europe/CONUS.

Is there any bag left?

I like one, if there is. (SWE)
