Is it possible that we could source some desk chairs that aren't ridiculous looking race car chairs? What's next, race car beds for really serious gamers?
How about good ergonomic chairs? These things can be GD expensive and it would be nice to be able to knock a hundred or so off to make the more affordable. I'm talking about the good office chairs like the kind of stuff you find here: https://www.fully.com/ or here: http://www.thehumansolution.com/ergonomic-chairs.html
The only issue is that there are so many different designs, it's hard to know what you would like best without trying it first.
Massdrop to Europe!
In europe, It's a pain having to go trough customs to buy in massdrop.
It would be awesome if we could have a massdrop for europe.
I know the products would be different but we had to start somewere... :)
This would include items like; Compound bows, and their accessories such as sights, strings, arrow rests, arrows and arrow tips (Rifles and their accessories?). But other items such as knives , bags, binoculars and rangefinders to name a few!
I'd love to have a Massdrop community catering to the high-end woodworking tools community. Planes, jigs, Japanese hand saws, chisels, tool rolls, wood turning tools, marking gauges, exotic woodstock etc. This stuff is right in the Massdrop sweet-spot. Niche, but not entirely outrageously priced, with an emphasis on quality goods.
I donno about the rest of you guys, but I really liked the vaping community. I know there were some legal/logistical issues, but with 4 new states recreationalizing Cannabis and 3 new states adding medical programs, the momentum is clear. It's a product category that's going to see more and more demand and I'd really like to see it back on Massdrop!

Dante: Please introduce a new circle of hell for web designers!
Do modern web designers do ANY usability testing? Today I received an email "It's not bragging if it's true" soliciting pictures of a recent purchase (Planck Mechanical Keyboard Kit V6). This leads to a "pictures" section of the product page which surprisingly was empty. So I uploaded a couple of pictures. It prompted me to type a caption which I did. The pictures are published without the caption (even when clicked on to view full size) and with a procrustic truncation over which I get no control (that I can find). This is pointless and makes me look stupid, so I want to delete them, but I cannot find any way to do that either!
I just came by and had to see that there is no longer a cooking, quilting and knitting community available. Most of the other stuff is of little interest for me, so don't expect that I will stay if they stay cancelled.
I seem to be getting a lot of clearance emails from Drop recently and now that they're actually selling many of their high end headphones at reduced prices along with emails saying that there are no future plans to restock (see https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/dpdjtb/psa_fostex_trx00s_on_dropcom_sorta_eol/)
Either they are planning some relaunch of their headphones (which I hope is the case) or they are clearing out stock in preparation for some liquidation. I see that their daily offerings have become stale and their removal of the different communities didn't really bode well for the company.
This has been brewing for some time. I think I've finally reached the end with Drop.
Yes there is the occasional "good" deal that's worth considering, but these are becoming far too sparse and fleeting. And then there is the common issue of incomplete or even totally inaccurate information in the descriptions, wrong pictures, or basic pictures missing (like full shots of the rear of an audio component... duh!). And even when pointed out, no change ever seems to be made, as evidenced by drops that have been running for multiple years and still contain issues commented on the first time around.
What broke this camel's back? The great (sic) deals available in the first ever Drop Warehouse "Sale." First item I checked, the Kyocera 12oz Travel Mug for nearly $30 shipped... which I believe is even more than when it originally dropped (pretty sure there was free shipping). Like I did before, I'll instead order another from Amazon for just $20.
For me, it has simply become a waste of...
