How many request hits do we need before we can make this drop active again?

It's available on kickstarter http://kck.st/2mo15mS
I absolutely love this keyboard kit, it gave me a chance at finer solder skills. It was so much fun to put together, and the stock firmware is fantastic. I have wondered about reprogramming, but I'm not sure that I would know to switch anything. Mito Godspeed keycaps are in the works, and I'll upload some glamour shots once she gets dressed up. 15/10 - Would buy again, but beware once you build one, you'll want to build more.
Agreed, I now have two Minivans, an extra case and a Roadkit. I can't stop, I love them too much!

I purchased another minivan at the beginning of the summer, this time I decided to go with the heavier Cherry MX Clears. Are solder joints strong enough to withstand the force of pulling keycaps? I'm trying to figure out if I should just go without a plate this time.

Hello, fellow typists. Is there a chance of relaunching this drop in the near future? Just shy of 5k requests has to be among the most requested boards on MassDrop.
Alternatively, can someone please recommend a similar small (40-65%) board with a split spacebar that's fully programmable (QMK would be best)? The closest I found is this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/YMDK-40-YMD40-DIY-Kit-AMJ-PCB-CNC-Case-Plate-For-40-Mini-Cute-Mechanical-Keyboard/32821953148.html
You can still get these on thevankeyboards.com, and they are releasing new versions, I think they are up to version 5 of the Minivan, and you can find 40% boards on Amazon and Ali express, also check out http://www.40percent.club for lots of great 30/40s

I didnt even realize he was taking preorders on the retro already... https://thevankeyboards.com/collections/catalog/products/retro60-pre-order
I gotta say, I paid $165 for this here, with switches and keys, feet and a cable. I just purchased a second from Vankeebs website for $250 and only got the case, PCB and stabalizers. This is a great board but I think the company is gouging it's customers based on it's popularity.

Good to know, thank you. I ended up buying them from kbdfans, as they also had cherry clears in stock.

try r/mechmarket the reddit community. You can definitely buy used but some people sell kits they never used.
