The Deskthority wiki is dedicated to mechanical keyboards, mice and other human interface devices. The main focus is everything regarding quality (mechanical) keyboards. In the nature of a wiki, the content will be frequently and constantly under construction. Want to share your knowledge and help us create the best input device wiki?

If you want to see what I did, click "View history" and press "Compare selected revisions".The convention is to put categories at the end - which is close to where they will be visible on the final page.I found the categories simply by looking around at pages I could find of similar keyboards and chose those that fit. There is no magic around that. Maybe there may be other categories that they would fit into.

Curiously there are three more LK201-like Cherry keyboards that are already in that category. I guess your page can go into that category for now.(In terms of keyboard clones, I guess the protocol of the keyboard is less important than the protocol of the terminal it connects to, since it's the terminal that's the clone rather than the keyboard itself, but this is debatable.)Hmmm, I had never seen that category before. I am new to doing this wiki stuff and don't really know how to place a board in a particular category.
  • mike52787 (Tue, 18 Jul 2017 19:41:37 +0200) Alright, added another wiki entry on some of my obscure keyboards.wiki/Cherry_G80-0693again, constructive criticism is encouraged.

  • mike52787 (Tue, 18 Jul 2017 18:16:37 +0200) Just contributed my first article to the wiki, here it is. wiki/Cherry_G80-3314Constructive criticism is welcome.
  • Findecanor (Tue, 18 Jul 2017 18:13:40 +0200) I had created categories "Backlit switches" and "RGB switches." some time ago.Daniel Beardsmore had later introduced the categories "Illuminated switches" (designed for) and "Illuminable switches" (optional), which was a split of "Backlit switches".I now deprecated "Backlit switches", movings its contents to "Illuminable switches" and "RGB switches", making the latter a subcategory of "Illuminable switches".The "RGB switches" category should maybe be renamed to "RGB-illuminable switches".Switches capable of RGB illumination are also no longer categorised as both "RGB" and "Backlit".
  • Daniel Beardsmore (Wed, 12 Jul 2017 19:04:34 +0200) Yes.Lots of interest in this discovery.
  • 002 (Wed, 12 Jul 2017 12:41:23 +0200) Should start with "KBR" instead of "KBM"?wiki/GRI_KBR
