Time for the April '13 KOTM competition, submit your modded keyboard pics here so we can get submissions rolling in.


A reminder of the rules for submitting entries and info about the competition in general:
  • If you see a modded board you like in this thread or elsewhere on the site, you can fill out the form below to submit an entry for that board.
  • You must detail who owns the board, a description of the board and a link to the picture of the board aswell as who you are.
  • At the end of the month I will put up a poll of the submitted boards.
  • The poll then stays open for 7 days so let people vote for which board they think is the coolest.
  • When the poll closes I'll announce the winner in the thread
  • The winner gets their name immortalised in the OP and gets their board pictured in the OP for that month, I'm also working with some of the staff to try and get some kind of physical prize sorted.


The form to submit your entries:



So all those who want a chance to win, post pics of your modded mech board and let's get some competition going. thumb.gif

was tempted to get some blue keycaps for my Quickfire TK, but ultimately I'd rather spend that money on a new mouse or something tongue.gif

still fun to look at the cool mods, but to be blatantly honest it doesn't look like enough people here are modding their boards to warrant a Mod of the Month for keyboards :/

I think we'll get more entries when we have a physical prize to give out.

Also people who don't win seem to not want to re-enter their boards.

I got some from there also, unfortunately they went shiny after a few months because they are ABS instead of PBT, but they still look nice. biggrin.gif
