HI there been lurking the forum for a while thought I’d make my first post.
Never really good at introductions, guess I’ll just tell you how I got into the MKB community.
In 2015/16 I had finished building my first PC, one thing I forgot to get was a new keyboard. I was looking around and knew I wanted something more robust than a regular keyboard something that had weight to it.
Then I learned about mechanical keyboards, something about them just immediately drew me in; the feel of typing on them was just different, enjoyable. So, I went to my nearest computer store, NCIX (rip). Had done research before hand and decide I wanted to get cherry mx browns, saw they had a one TKL Ducky Shine 3 left with browns.
At the time I wasn’t planning on buying more boards or thinking that this would become my new hobby. I love that keyboard, the orange led glow though the keycap, love the feel when typing on a tactile switch :). It’s still one of my favorites, and find my self going back to regularly.
A couple months had passed using it and was still lurking around r/MK looking at other.
A new world had opened for me learnt more about them, finding other type of keyboards, being fascinated by all the different keycaps color ways.
Honestly, I don’t know why I chose to delve deep into mechanical keyboards and be fine dropping thousands of dollars.
Maybe it’s the endless customization, or maybe it’s the community
