I was looking forward to Pulse and it looks delicious, but...
...I need to point out that UK and Norde support is lacking somewhat.
1.25u LShift key? Not present in neither Norde nor UK kit. It's impossible to, for example, cover a Nordic keyboard without it because we use an extra key there. The only kits with a 1.25u Shift key are the Extras Mods kit and 40s Mods kit.
It's already expensive enough to buy all kits to cover a European keyboard. This means yet another kit just to cover a standard layout.
Also, no AltGr key of any size. It's present on most European keyboards (never saw a European keyboard without it, but I guess one could exist somewhere).

It's in the Base Mods kit.

The difference between the AltGr keycap and the Alt keycap is literally a Gr, let's be frank that's pretty much the same. Why include yet another extra 1.25u if Alt is enough to do the job? I understand how some people would like to have 100% accurate legends since they are paying for a high-end aftermarket custom product, but the audience that actually wants this is very small in the grand scheme of things. That's why the euro kits are only offered in black to begin with - last time I offered all colors options to the euro market, only 4 people (out of thousands) purchased the Lunar Godspeed XDA Norde kit. Fulfilling only 4 orders out of thousands require lots of coordination and it's simply not worth it from the organizers standpoint view. Adding a Gr keycap would just increase the complexity of the product for pretty much a negligibe gain. Hope you understand!

Ha! I was looking so hard and was surprised it wasn't there. Thanks for pointing it out! :)
On a European keyboard, those are entirely different. I use AltGr *daily* to access the third symbol on alphanumeric keys; like tilde or brackets for example. I use Alt far more seldom and to perform alternate actions; e.g. interacting with windows.
The Euro customer base is already small. I don't think it's going to become bigger by having US-ANSI 100% accurate and ISO less than.
But I agree it's a difficult matter. I wish there were better strategies to solve this dilemma.
That being said. Love the colorways on this one! It really looks amazing! :)

Anne Pro 2 Keycaps
Hello Everyone! I would like to ask a question for a project that I'm working on, I'm starting to finish my Gaming Setup which I already have everything. I just bought a keyboard which was the Anne Pro 2 and I love it a LOT. The only problem is the key-caps are kinda lame. Now I'm open to any suggestions or any recommendation for any key-caps, here are some things I want in them. Affordable, not to expensive Very colorful (I don't like any pink key-caps) Works with the Anne pro 2 keyboard Thanks very much! :)

Need extra WASD options in key drops
This is an appeal to keycap set makers to add specific WASD keycaps alternates into their drop extra options. I'm a gamer and I tend to abuse the WASD keys a LOT. I'd love to be able to replace these specific keys without having to poach from my other key kits.

Help! I'm trapped in a keyboard!
I apologize for the off topic post, but having not visited Drop for a while I sign in and find that I had reduced my communities to just Keyboards. I'd like to add Watches. But for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do that. How can I see a list of all communities and add new ones?

I purchased the Drop Alt Barebones High Profile. Looking to swap to possibly a brass plate. What options would fit?
