I'm not quite sure why you chose that particular image to replace the menu key, but ok... Personally, I would think 1905 could replace the backspace, but i'm not sure what else you would have to replace those two emptied locations..

 

Thank you for the feedback. Last night I stayed awake until 3 AM in my time and did many changes. Here is a summary

 

* The entire board is now yellow and red

 

* Escape key is a running man who also looks like a footballer running

 

* F1-F11 are legendary players with jersey numbers that they used to wear

 

* F12 key is now called Sampiyon which means Champion

 

* Prt Screen, Pause Keys are now called CIM BOM BOM whichi is our nickname that supporters call out for during the games. We call our them Sampiyon CIM BOM BOM. So all of these are next to each othe rnow. 

 

* I had already changed the Backspace to our founding year 1905. Good call from you as well. Since it is back space, going back is like going to the beginning and for Galatasaray it is 1905

 

* Home button is our stadium. Ali Sami Yen. Surround the home button is how our team is Spelled GA-LA-TA-SA-RAY.... All of these keys have reminders written in the smallest font possible. Such as the key TA has delete written under it.

 

* Tab and Caps Lock keys have been renamed to the biggest 2 cups we won in our history. UEFA CUP WINNER and SUPER CUP WINNER

 

* Shift keys remained the same. SARI means YELLOW, KIRMIZI means RED... This is also a chant that is used by the supporters

 

* CTRL keys have been renamed to our legendary coach. Since he controls the team I changed these keys to his name. Left CTRL is Fatih, Right CTRL is Terim

 

* Space bar is now replaced with another chant sang by the supporters during happy days.

 

* Enter key is our Legendary Striekr who passed away. He is the top scorer of all times for my team. And Enter key seems suitable for that.

 

* Alt keys have been renamed after me and my wife :)

 

 

I think i will go with this layout, and the colors seem enjoyful. Most importantly this keyboard will be unique.

The keys wearing off is irrelevant as if you contact support telling them its happened, you get a nice reply saying they recognize the problem with the early models and will send you a free new set of key caps to address the issue.

Totally agree about the Mionix Zibal 60. Fantastic board if a bit overpriced. It's pretty much the most solidly built board I've ever laid my hands on...if it were not for the size preference of the TKL Filco w/ cherry blacks, I'd be using it constantly, but for now I just game on it when I don't need all the desk space for work!

I think the minor issues (potentially needing new keycaps to be sent to me) are worth having a matching set. +rep to you guys

you gotta be really careful with hot water like a dishwater , some of the bigger caps like the spacebar and shifts can warp with the heat , id just stick them in the sink with warm water and use a brush and soap to them , a little more hands on but its safer, use a soft enough brush to make sure you dont affect the printing either .

Sounds good to me. I have been meaning to do this for a while but i just have not really known how to go about it so that i don't ruin the keycaps.

Ty for the advice.

Ty for the advice.

On a lot of good quality keyboards im sure they could survive a dishwasher but when I tried it was a cheap one and the spacebar was all twisted and wouldnt fit anymroe and I had to use a hair dryer to get it close enough to fit. Also if you run a damp cloth with some bleach on your keyboard every once in a while you shouldnt have to do a full clean very often ,at the same time it helps with bacteria since your keyboard and mouse are the objects with the second most amount of bacteria in a house .. typically, the first being the TV remote , its gross
