ANNOUNCEMENT: 5 New Communities!

Hi everyone,
We’re very excited to announce that we’re launching five new communities! Launching new communities isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. A lot of thought and effort goes into every new community we create, and we’ve worked diligently to make sure we’re putting our best foot forward and making something you can really enjoy. We could not (and would not!) have done this without you. Now, let’s dive into how we chose these communities, the process, and what’s next.
We have a few simple guidelines that have always helped us determine which communities to create. Each new community should possess one or more of these qualities:
1. Community requested by Massdrop members 2. Community we believe we can meaningfully help and grow 3. Community that can be split off from our existing communities
As you can see, first and foremost, we listen to the community at large. This comes in the form of Talk posts, comments, polls, and even direct conversations. Not too long ago, we surveyed a group of Massdrop members to see which new communities we should move into. After compiling that data with our own research, we were able to narrow down the list to the five communities you see below.
Each of these new communities is a split-off of its parent community. This splitting off makes it easier for us to devote the time and effort necessary to grow each community as we ourselves grow as a company. Will this always be the way we do it? Definitely not. The process of creating new communities itself will evolve as well, and we’re very much looking forward to what comes next.
So, without further ado, here are the newest additions to Massdrop communities:

Baking Community
Aprons and ovens on! In the Baking Community, home bakers can shop bakeware and swap recipes for the best cakes, breads, pastries, and more.

Flashlights Community

But what about cycling? Coffee? Leather-working? Women’s apparel?
Creating new communities will always be an ongoing and evolving process for us. There are many more communities to break into, and we’re listening to what all of you think should come next. We take your posts, polls, votes, and comments to heart, so keep letting us know which ones matter to you the most as we continue to create more.
We’ve created a new poll so everyone can add their suggestions for which new communities we should create.

Thank you all so much for all of your input, feedback, and suggestions.

What do you think of the new communities?
Which ones should be on Massdrop next?

New Communities: Knives that do not cut Knives that fold out to the right Knives that fold out to the left Knives for 12 year olds and under Good luck Drop, you’re gonna need it. [Update for those who belonged to the Writing community] Some of us had the idea that maybe Endless Pens might want to host our Writing community, so we reached out to them, and although there is no forum in place, Hop Drop is specifically created for us. https://endlesspens.com/collections/hop-drop You will need to create an account to see what's on offer, there will be an additional 15% off using code: HOPDROP15 This offer will be valid for a week, and there will be new deals with new discount codes every week. Visit this link for the latest on this development: https://drop.com/talk/21301/current-deals-elsewhere Spread the word. Pass it on.

I'm surprised it's not, knives, knives, knives and knives. Kolour does that and their knives suck. Won't keep an edge. Coffee? - you can't compete with DeathWish. PC Gaming? -Going for the 17 year-old demographic? Fountain pens? -Get real. Create an Art supply group if you're going that route. Grooming? - Dollar Shave Club has that. Trading Cards? - Seriously? Unless someone wants to buy my hockey cards, I'll pass. Baking? - Yeah, I like to bake and could use some quality equipment, but I'd rather see apparatus for the OTHER type of baking, if you know what I mean. Give a deal on Volcanoes again. How about PAX? throw in some lighters in the mix. Add some CBD products too. Board Games? - Yawn...How about Survival groups? Flashlights? - How many does one need? put them with survival gear which is where they belong anyway. Why don't you feature something original? The choices you have now are pretty lame. Why don't you feature cool stuff like the bug-a-salt rifle for killing flies? Are you seriously thinking about getting into clothing? Have you thought that through? You'll be swamped with returns and sizing issues.

If we were to go for my personal list of communities to branch into, this'd be the first one for sure. Fun fact, we used to have a Coffee Community back in the day, and I'd genuinely love for those days to return. ☕

This is something we've been talking about ALOT and greatly want to see in the future of new communities. It's very clear we need (as we certainly want) more categories for women.
