After participating in a few drops I now understand that anything I buy will take a much longer time to receive than I would at typical retailers. This is the problem. People's expectations aren't being met because they just don't know this when they join for the first time.
I still wait eagerly for things to arrive whenever I join a drop, but I find the slow shipping time to be a small price to pay for the great community and good deals on specialty items I wouldn't know about them otherwise.
Yeah, I love the Massdrop community. The community provides a lot of feedback and help in decision-making. I think the problem is we live in a society where if you want something, you can get it instantly. Instant gratification ruined patience in the people.
This is too true. It makes me angry when people throw their money at this website not understanding the mechanics of how it all works, and how they are actually getting the discounted price, then getting angry because it's not at their door 4 days later.
