Two and a half years ago admgc posted his initial concept for Greenscreen and cited this photo

as his inspiration for the set. It immediately transported me to one of my earliest experiences with computers in the late 80s where I spent hours experimenting with an IBM terminal while staying for a week at my uncle’s house one summer. I had no manual and nobody else knew anything about the computer so through trial and error I was able to brute-force my way through a few basic commands. The excitement I felt when I would finally get a valid response from my inputs is a memory that always brings a smile to my face.
I think the colors in this set capture that vintage computing imagery perfectly and I am humbled that admgc incorporated my suggestions as well as putting up with my pestering to bring it to life over the last couple years. I hope you are as excited as I am to relive the 70s and 80s by adorning your biggest, loudest, and beigest keyboard with this set. I’d also love to hear about your favorite “green screen” experience!

TY!
order placed with vendor! Can't wait but there is going to be a long wait for this!
The Ergodox kit is canceled?!?

As I only have Cherry and DSA profile keycaps I can't really combine any other set... I guess I'll have to wait some time until a new set comes around. I found a cool one on geekhack, the GMK Wāpuro, let's see if it manages to get to the group-buy stage...
I agree, this $110 + for ergodox is really preventing it reaching MQ.
Hey everyone, quick update from me. Based on the number of orders we've received - both the 40bit and Ergodox kits are quite far from MOQ.
I'm going to work with the team to see if we can also get them made - but in the event this can't happen - our support team will reach out to all those affected and allow orders to be edited / cancelled.
I will keep everyone updated!
EDIT: NorDeUK and Colevrak will be made.

Will Communities kit be good?
YanboWu
Is it possible to somehow add the nordeUk kit still? I didn’t think it would get made so didn’t add one.
Wait what... I can't buy? Am I too late?
cnyborg
Sorry, the drop closed about two weeks ago!
Soooo... When are we going to find out what kits are being made? What happened to updating everyone at the end of the drop?
Keybler
Same here, kind of bullshit how they haven't even updated the page or the spreadsheet.
Cradess
The spreadsheet was updated at the end of the drop.
Congratulations on the successful GB. Bought two sets and can't wait for this.
When will we find out about kits that didn't hit the MOQ?

I saw that – too late for me now unfortunately ... Can try to contact Massdrop to "cancel my cancellation", but I don't think chances are high ... Will be smarter next time, however, I still think the whole thing is a very confusing, ad absurdum system if MOQs are set for orientation which are produced anyway even it they only reached 60% – combined with the zero information Massdrop philosophy if you are really able to still cancel your whole order after the drop has closed (as mentioned I read some negative customer experiences concerning this topic which scared me to cancel my order a few hours before the drop closed). Maybe I'm too new to this group buy thing to completely understand how it works ... Anyway, will hope for a round two, nothing else left for me to do.
Well, I joined at the last minute! Shame the novelties are so expensive. I just couldn't justify the extra $50. I got green screen alphas, modifiers, arrows kit, and the green spacebars.
As someone who hasn't participated in a keycap drop before, how will we know what final decision is made for those sets that didn't meet the targeted MOQ? Will an official update be posted here?

Apologies if this has already been pointed out, but there appears to be an issue with how the checkout system calculates the amount of your order. Each time you add an order with "No thanks" for the alphas, it takes $2 off of your total, so I was able to reduce my $201.96 order to $1.96 by adding 100 orders that had "No thanks" for both the alphas and the additional kit. Obviously, I didn't go through with the order, but it would seem like this could cause some problems.
MightyJabba
Thank you, I will let staff know about the issue!
This drop has been one of the most conflicting drops for me. I really have too many keysets at this point, but this one is so good. I'll probably sell a Laser or 9009 set to offset the cost. Down for an amber numpad to help out the drop. SA caps are amazing - the best feeling in my opinion, they make the keyboard feel so much more solid than even GMK caps.

This is my first try of SA caps. They seem to be comfortable but might be a bit tall for me, having said that the aesthetic does it for me. I like low profile caps with curved edges that are sculpted to cup your finger.

So I guess that's it for the NorDeUK layout kit then ... Breaks my heart, but I'm cancelling my whole 350$ order right now - simply because I can't take the risk (no matter if others here say there isn't any) to get refund problems if I wait until the drop has already closed.
Again, I was really, really looking forward to these keycaps. Sorry if I am too anxious about this, but mabye there's better / more clear communication in the future from Masadrops that you'll definitely have the right to cancel your whole order even after the drop has ended if MOQ isn't reached for one of your kits.

If you haven't seen it, @YanboWu posted this yesterday - https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-admgc-sa-green-screen-custom-keycap-set/talk/2155595?utm_source=linkshare&referer=AV5F4D
Situations like yours come up over and over again, drop after drop. I doubt even 1% of them are posted in the discussions. Not sure why Massdrop doesn't share their official keycap drop policy. Something like this, for example – http://www.mechsupply.co.uk/how-it-works
I agree, the Amber numberpad has to happen. What a disappoitment it would be to offer a second colorway and not even be able to cover a standard layout with it.
Hey everyone, since we are pretty close to the next drop points on a few kits - we've extended out this drop for 1 more day to collect more orders.
I will update everyone at the end of the drop on what's going to happen to the low MOQ kits. We always like to get everything made if possible, but sometimes super low MOQs will make this hard. No matter the outcome, you'll get a chance to adjust your kits if something in your order will not be made.

I'm in the same situation. I've ordered the NorDeUk-kit, and if it is not produced I would as well want to cancel my order and get a full refund. I've also ordered the LED-kit which has not reached MOQ.
YanboWu
This is my first group by, I ordered the alpha + ergodox. I saw that the ergodox orders are quite low, if it doesn't get produced I'll get a refund on it right?

I got a $10 discount because my order ($45) was over $50, but now that part of the drop didn't reach the needed threshold, the order will no longer be over $50. Do I need to buy a little thing in this to push me over $50?
Thanks
pbog
A 45$ order seems too little anyways. That sounds like you are only buying the Alphas kit? No Modifiers?
Oblotzky
I initially ordered the Ergodox kit too, but that doesn't seem like it'll reach 75 buyers.
I'm probably joining later today and getting both alphas and the planck kit. What are the chances of Massdrop going ahead and having all the kits made? I'm eyeing the 40s kit, even at the $100 price tag.
Umm.. if I order arrow set, do I get all the 3 arrow colors? Or i'm just gonna get the color that match the alphas?
diersa
All three
diersa
All keys pictured in the kit, so all colors.
I'm fairly certain but I wanted to check. Is the base kit + 40% suitable for a UT47 keyboard?
DireDoge
Unfortunately no I believe, as it would require a R2 1.5u key for Backspace
The chart shows July 24 update. It's 29. I wonder the alternate function keys 49 vs 50 MOQ future and modifiers drop price. There was 200+ orders since 24s, but I cannot find them on chart. Please update.
I was really wondering if the amber numpad is going to be made or not, since it's only about halfway towards the MOQ. The way they worded it on the page is: "The Numpads will be offered in either green or amber to match the alphas" makes it almost sound like they're guaranteed to be made, but I'm really unsure about it.
If I can't get a matching numpad, I don't think I want the Amber kit. But I can't be sure if Its going to be made or not until after the drop ends, so do I need to make two separate orders for the Green and Amber to be sure I can get either of them and cancel afterwards? Any information would be appreciated :)
Cradess
Don’t give up hope... as the Asian proxy purchases usually hit on the last day.
I want to buy the amber set so bad but i refuse to do it without the numpad. this blows, getting 75 kits for the secondary numpad in this drop is impossible and it shouldn't have been set that high, even if the price had to go up...

Hellyahh
Yes. exactly this. Why such a relatively high MOQ for the numpads vs. some of the other sets?? Just bump up the cost if necessary. I mean, I'd pay $50 to for the amber numpad set if that's what was needed to get a complete amber key set.
jneely
Me too. I'd rather have the option from a higher pricepoint than be left with an incomplete set of keys :/
If the amber numpad is not produced, will i have the option to cancel my entire order? Can someone answer this question directly? Thanks.
ALPOAL
Wondering the same thing :/
so which option do i choose to get all the 3 size bases?
jedi5diah
I'm not quite sure what you mean. You can purchase any combination of kits you like by adding them to your cart.
Can anybody tell me what keyboard or case is shown in the header image? I really like the smooth edges and the color fits perfectly.

It's the Verne, a TKL designed by Zambumon and still in development phase. More info: https://www.keebtalk.com/t/zambumon-verne-custom-tkl-keyboard/
april next year is the shipping date... sorry I'm new to the community, is this normal?

It's normal for pretty much any good custom set, Laser took 9 months
BlueCrowned
@Oblotzky Thanks for the info!
Come on people -- buy some amber numpads!
This is going to ruin my amber keyboard to have amber alphas and not matching numpad because we don't hit the MOQ.
jneely
Agree. This numpad look realy genuine. Just beautyful!
jneely
I really want that amber numpad :< Gonna suck majorly if I miss those, but what will happen to the order at that point?
Just a curious question would the standard 43.99 drop be enough to fill a standard 60 percant?
Tonydudess
Nope, you'd need the entire 100 dollar modifier set just to complete it :|

Wack time to cancel order
