You guys should really include the size of the modifiers in the product details so you always don't have people coming here to ask if it will fit their keyboard
PS: What are the sizes of the modifier keys?
Alternatively, people could learn to recognize key sizes from images. Why is it that some people can recognize a standard bottom row and others cannot? But I'm being unreasonable by expecting people to take some initiative. Crazy talk.
P.S. It's a standard ANSI layout. 2u Backspace, 1.5u Tab, 1.75u CapsLock, 2.25u Enter, 2.25u L Shift, 2.75u R Shift, 1.25u bottom row mods, 6.25u spacebar. It also contains an extra 1.75u Shift for the ALT.
But it's simple though, if you want to sell to noobs and relative newcomers (you clearly do, and that's fine and a great thing) then make it easier for them to buy and just describe what you're selling in the most specific terms.
I see you posting the sizes in multiple product discussion pages in response to inquiries (thank you for that) and I can imagine that's probably a bit irritating for you.
But if you know people are gonna constantly ask you guys about it, then why not save yourself some hassle and just include the sizes in the description/overview instead of castigating interested customers for not being able to recognize them by sight like you and others with experience can?
1) People fail to read the description and specs as it is and still ask questions they could answer themselves. People also ask repeat questions instead of using the search function within discussion.
2) Spoon feeding everything creates an expectation and I do not want to reinforce that expectation.
"Compatible with CTRL, ALT, ENTR, as well as most standard Tenkeyless and 104-key Keyboard layouts" is already included in the specs, but apparently, it still needs to be spelled out. See point 2. In the meantime, I'll continue to answer questions alongside telling people to do some homework.
EDIT: I'll also add that even when all pertinent information is provided on the overview page, people still get upset when told to go read it instead of having their question(s) answered.
