I liked how none of these entries realistically fit my use.

It basically fits ~5% of usecases for a keyboard 🙄

This is like having a poll that says

How do you use your fountain pen?

  • Calligraphy

  • Professional art

  • Art as a hobby

  • Journaling

Like... it is still just a pen, you use it for anything you use a pen for, none of these things are a reason to get in to keyboards specifically, just more customization and flair, more fun to use for any or all of the above.

Same, but these days mostly Conid. Wish they would open up requests ever again so I could get a Kingsize.

I know Francis has been fairly active on FPGeeks and various other forums continually posting updates to the effect of "they are planning to re-open soon" (most recently here). From this it sounds like their parent company was acquired either shortly before or shortly after the start of the pandemic, but they still retain the rights to produce pens (at the discretion of parent company's parent company...). Notably they were due to restart production "soon"^TM but only limited models and configs with no customization. Seemed reasonable.

BUT! Actually in the course of looking this up I just came across this thread - looks like they are manufacturing pens again but possibly only this one model.

Yeah, I'm assuming they didn't put it on there because it'd get 90% of the votes, so kinda obvious anyway. Quality tools are a joy to use regardless of the task. Also, r/mechanicalheadpens moment.

Writing and Research, maybe some data entry, is my use-case. I guess that's under "creative"? Creative data entry lol

Lol, doesn’t even include basic text writing for school/university/job or working with tools like excel

Could at least add a “None of the above option” in such a limited poll.

I mean… I marked gaming because I do that, but 95% of the time I’m using it in my office for work.

That's like asking what I use my PC for, to which I answer "literally everything"

A lot of comments complaining about their thing not being on the list.

It’s intentional.

You can choose to not answer.

Thanks to everyone that did answer!
