20% rebate on all Round 7 orders.

update:
The first kits to be produced will be:
VIOLETT and CREAMVIOLETT


The madness has started!
:evilgeek:

The Style is named ALGOL to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the ALGOL Programming language in 2018!
:ugeek:

Colors will be grey, red, green, blue, violett on cream,
plus cream on grey, red, green, blue, violett.
:cool:

This time, the bot created a website, so it is easier for it to upload content:
:o

-----> Round 7 <-----
---------------------> :ugeek:

Please read the Round 6 wiki How to order

To send an order, you still have to pm the bot: ----> Send Order<----

Production will be separate for each color and will start with the most successful color, once there are enough orders.

Until 31 May 2017, there is a 20% rebate on all Round 7 orders.

I see you set an ambitious goal for the finalization of this GB! :D

OK I have to admit this is tempting although not cheap at $140. I'm sure if I order now I can get the set around christmas 2017. :x :evilgeek:

You forget the 25% rebate, so it is only $105 and even better: Some prices might go down, becuase the pricing is quite conservative.
:cool:

If blue is the most ordered color, 2017 is doable.

Fixed that for you.

Also ... any chance for DENOSE or NORDE kits with the ALGOL or ASCII seconday legends?

At least in the most popular colors ... ?

Such beautiful madness. Only needs white on black or white on HONEY gray for media keys and all the symbol modifiers!

No love for blanks? No colemak and dvorak layout?

Implement some kind of search function please. I used to use browser's ctrl-F with the previous format, it is impossible to do that now

Also, where is the ISO key down by the Z? It isn't anywhere else so it seems to render any of the ISO kits useless as you'd be missing a key next to your shift!

As in these keys in the various colours: wiki/File:HONEYB_VERTBSL_R4_SPH.png

Am I missing something, or are there only 1.75u shifts in gray and green?

No violet makes me very sad :cry:

Edit: And no 1.5u R2 backspace :( I want to join this so badly, but with literally no HHKB support, I can't justify it :(

Can we get the color chip code for each color used? And just realize the color distribution isn't as broad as last round (no blue 1u shift when there are another blue mods available). Or I just not yet see it? The website quite confusing tbh hehe.

I believe we're looking at 2017 just for the website to finish loading all the pictures. JK 7bit, it's actually loading really fast, much faster than the wiki for R6.

This is some very impressive scripting out there, 7bit! I can't imagine doing all this manually using Adobe Illustrator like someone suggested before.
