It does look pretty damn good. But this TENKLESS/WHITE kit (with ISO extras) is the one I'm planning to sell.

But man is it too dark for shooting now, even stark white caps!

Are there any plans for next round?

There's plenty red left if you look at the R6 leftovers. I doubt there's another round coming in these exact colors – 7bit's plans for Round 7 are a bit vague, but they do seem to revolve around a different color scheme. But plese ask questions like these in the Round 5/6 thread.

Bit offtopic and not even a real thing, but inspired by Round 5 colors.

Can I ask something? How does these keycaps feel compared to thick PBT keycaps, like on the Pok3r for example? Are they heavier, or lighter? Do you feel a tactile bump more or less?

Best regards

Got some R5 leftovers in the mail today (thanks 7bit!), and my WhiteFox is finally entirely populated with SA keys instead of being some kind of weird frankenstein-esque mishmash. These are kind of a placeholder for the white mods i ordered from Round 6, but seeing as those might be a while I have plenty of time to figure out what the "panic" and "7 bit mode" keys should be programmed to do.

This is all a big scam right? These pictures of happy customers with their cool keyboards are all faked up by you guys?

Its been so long since you guys took my money that I forgot about this order. Can you tell us what invoice # you're shipping. Fuck.

I suspect questions like these will find more answers in the R5/R6 thread. But as far as I know, most people who ordered from Round 5 have their keycaps by now. Round 6 (The Round Formerly Known As Round 5a) however, that's a different story… :(

I suggest "panic" is launching your favourite text editor then type the start of a fake letter like "Dear Sir, blah blah blah".
"7bit mode" shall, of course, switch to a layer where each key issue a new different order for Algol :mrgreen:

Round 5 black alphas and some greys, waiting for Round 6 reds to replace most greys and all oranges.
The kid was damn happy ;)

I'll check over there, but I'm going on 16months with no order fulfillment. I'm pretty much concluding rip off.

Round 5 keycaps have all been delivered--long ago in fact. If you ordered Round 5 keycaps and didn't get them, then they got lost in the mail and you should contact 7bit for a remedy.

Round6 phase 1 keycaps have all been delivered. If you ordered Round 6 phase 1 keycaps and didn't get them, then they got lost in the mail and you should contact 7bit for a remedy.

Round 6 phase 2 keycaps are being sorted and packed right now. 7bit will begin sending them to buyers in the next week or two. If you don't receive your Round 6 phase 2 keycaps in the next month or two, then they got lost in the mail and you should contact 7bit for a remedy.

Of course, there are myriad other reasons why an order might go undelivered, but in any case contacting 7bit is always the best first step.

Hi WilliamG, which country are you from?

Edit: Okay, you are in Round 6 b that everyone is anticipated also in this December 2017, not related to the possibly higher undelivered rate of some countries.

Hi, I am very new to these mods that you do.
I do not know what to buy, where to buy etc.
I like the keys of these keyboards because they look like the 70s computers. But I need a modern US keymap and PS2 board.
Can you please tell me where to start?
I have no idea if these keyboards are sold, where to buy them and how to order them.

Thanks a lot for the info!

Just about any Cherry MX Keyboard will take these aftermarket caps. Read around about mechanical keyboards and I’m sure you’ll discover them.

It just makes me weep when I see these really lovely keysets. Or more to the point, that they're no longer simply The Standard™ but that we've had the more modern-looking ugly crap since forever now. I mean it's great that there's still a niche for decent, usable keys, but really sad that it's a niche.

How do these people do it? Is there anyone I can contact to buy one keyboard and where to buy these keysets?
How are the people in this thread do it, where they buy these? any links?
