I know I've uploaded a picture of my QFR already but I'd like to add this too:



Also best place to find custom keys for this board? As I love the red ones that came with it!

WASD for normal keys

but you can get others else where



edit:
I don't know about you but I sure enjoy my keyboard.





I might get custom keycaps or powder coat it sometime though.

Is there a shipping cost? I bought a nearly new one on the Bay for $52 shipped just to give you another option.

Also guys, I've moved the layout of the OP around a little and finally typed out the rules of Keyboard of the Month properly, any opinions/ suggestions on the layout?
Oh and I've changed it so the winners of the Keyboard of the Month get their names in red in the membership table so everyone knows their dedication and commitment to the club. thumb.gif
Finally I'm trying to price up possibly giving a prize to the winners of Keyboard of the Month, but as I'd be giving them out 12 times a year would there be any point in giving something like a $5 prize out? tongue.gif


I can help out with some of the prizes. Got tons of keys and keyboard related **** laying around.

I can imagine, you seem to post a board I've never seen every couple of days. tongue.gif

That would be really nice of you to offer to donate some stuff but I'm not sure about the logistics of shipping stuff like that everywhere thinking.gif, any thoughts on how we could make it work? You can send me a PM if you'd prefer.

I've had a thought though, do you know what would be really cool? If we set up a limited run of "Keyboard of the Month" MX keycaps that could be given away as a prize each month, I think an limited edition key unique to this thread would be a sweet idea. biggrin.gif

Anyway....i can already hear the giggles but... i want in.
I have a keyboard and technically it is a mechanical, although not a great one, its uber budget.
ZM-K500, no laughing please redface.gif its my first get a way from rubber domes, still id say its an upgrade from my G510. I bought 2 of these for a decent price today in town and they seem to be not too bad.
Ideally id love a Ducky Shine 2 with Browns but....im broke, christmas has destroyed my bank balance and im sure it will get much worse once the Steam sales begin rolleyes.gif
Anyway some pics below, its no doubt a cheap plastic feel and look to it but after 5 minutes of PlanetSide2 i realised how bad my G510 actually was and although only a small upgrade i feel its well worth the money. Bought one for my son as well, sure he will test its strength long term.
BTW the red isnt that bright in the flesh, just looks like this on photos. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Agreed! thumb.gif Also, That keyboard looks pretty sick. Kind of reminds me of the Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition.

We could all donate a couple $/£ each to a central fund, then use that to buy the prizes. That way, not one person is always buying/donating prizes; could even have a "pay in" clause, $2 or so, to nominate yourself or something.
I like that idea on the key caps aswell. thumb.gif

How are you guys powder coating your keyboards?

I call around and most people will deny powder coating plastics.

The only thing is for distributions sake it would only really make sense to have the keys centralised in one place to be distributed to the winners.

Also I'm not sure if it's a good idea for people to be paying money to buy these keys if they might never win one.

I don't mind paying the amount myself to buy the keys as we shouldn't need loads of them as long as it's not hundreds of dollars for 20 keys or however much. tongue.gif

Also getting people to pay for entry to a competition might not be in line with OCN's policies. thumb.gif

Yeah, that's true. Well, we could still donate to the person who buys them just to cover some cost.
