Admin, I PM'd you my thoughts, but to be honest most of the ideas here are really not smart.
I am a tad worried this is going to end up being one of those things where it does everything and therefore nothing. I hope you guys sift this out and keep the board refined while still innovating.
We will always have our stock keyboard offering - we are just looking for one or two ideas to add onto a new keyboard and thought asking the community was only right. I am completely aware about design by committee issues (i.e. a platypus is often referred to as an animal designed by a committee). We will make sure this does not turn into the platypus :)
