Vote in the final round of this category to win a Varmilo VA68Mg and Filco Convertible 2 from The Keyboard Company!
Use this topic to suggest nominees for The Deskthority Award 2017. This is the main award and "super category," so anything goes. You can suggest a keyboard, company, keycap set, person, etc. It can be something or someone already nominated in another category as well. In fact, please post strong candidates from other categories. What has been extra special since November 26, 2016? Who earns the Golden Wingnut? You have to give a short motivation for each suggestion. You cannot nominate yourself.
- Kailh Box Switches
- Matt3o because he is an active forum member, he is transparent on his projects, gathers input from other DT users, has made multiple projects come to life as real products (Hi profile, Whitefox, Elvish, etc) Sadly out of the running because he's an organizer of the DTA
- IBM Model M and Cherry G80 for starting it all
- Chyros / Chyrosran22 for his productions in 2017 in his youtube channel . He got me into the hobby, especially into vintage boards. Super informative and entertaining reviews.
- "KeepClackingAnd..." for organizing "MECHANICON" in Germany
- An abstract concept, the kindess of this community all around, I got helped so much, when I was a newbie and still to today (even though I'm just a more experienced noob :p). Love you people ! Thanks! But Deskthority cannot win its own awards I'm afraid
- Daniel Beardsmore for continuing to work on the wiki and starting to post pedantically again. The wiki really is an invaluable resource often taken for granted.
- Kailh separately for actually innovating in the switch design space
- The Board Podcast for providing us with free, high quality podcast episodes, videos and livestream around our keyboard community since their debut over a year ago.
- oldisnew for his great efforts in converting various vintage keyboards, for example, the Harris Smart Terminal, xwhatsit Model F to USB
- ruiqimao for creating the Keyboard Firmware Builder and making the use of JH's QMK software a lot easier
- I'd like to nominate Wodan for his keyboard building videos, showing off and talking about good keyboard building practices.
- HaaTa / Input club for furthering the hobby. All that work on force-graphs is truly amazing. I did love the Halo-true switch. I also like that input club is bringing better keyboards to the masses with their sponsoring of e-sport.
- KBDFans, for bringing new good things for a cheap price!
