I don't have the right permissions to edit, the spreadsheet, but I will PM Tator and ask if he could possibly edit it or grant me permission.

Also there is a "Keyboard of the Month" form already, I will leave the winners names in the OP in a spoiler as a Hall of Fame type section.

Dropdown would be best if possible, since there are a finite amount of key choices. I would do: topre [variable, uniform]. cherry [black/blue/brown/red/other], alps variant (sub choices) , buckling spring, other.... I'm probably missing something but that can be decided before it's made.

I see loads of "which mechanical board should I get?" threads, so hopefully we'll have an influx of new members. tongue.gif

Yes you are correct, and it would eliminate people entering the same switches in different ways e.g. MX Blues, Blue, Cherry MX Blues etc.

I have PM'd Tator Tot about making these changes because as far as I can tell, I can only edit the spreadsheet and not the form itself.

But what I could use some help with is creating a list of mechanical switches to use in the drop down menu, I am familiar with the most common types like the MX's and ALPS, however some of you true enthusiasts out there (looking at you _AKIMbO_ and Ripster) have some obscure switches. Do you think I should include these exotic varieties separately, or just include MX's, ALPS and then have 'Other'.

Let me know what you think guys. smile.gif

Cherry MX - the venerable Cherry MX switch

And once these are updated:

Buckling Springs - the mechanical keyboard that started it all
Other Switches - other common switch types

Edit: Also I know the mech guide in the OP lists some of the other switches.

Yeah, the mech guide has some, but I'm sure there would be some rare varieties missing, if Tator Tot is alright with me changing the form I'll include the ones in the mech guide and any others I can think of.

I think rare ones like hall effect can just be "other". You're only going to have like 1 person with them, if any.
