Fearlessleader! I'm sorry that it's frustrating not being able to quickly discover the daily drop email.
Is there a way you can filter for messages from the sender instead - info@i.massdrop.com ?

I thought that I said it, but... ALL emails are from the same email address... daily "new products", "items are back", etc.
The subject lines last week were just fine, but they changed Thursday or Friday.
Please just change them back! All that's needed is each subject line to begin with "Massdrop New Products" and then all you want.

So you are a unique human in that the preference of most people is to have only the product names in the subject line so that they can tell whether or not they want to open the email that day.
What if you tried creating a filter which uses the sender info@i.massdrop.com AND includes the words "new drops from the" see the example here:
search
This seemed to work for me. Does you email client support it?

Wha was wrong with the way it was up until Thursday or Friday?
just start each subject line with same 2-3 words (like it used to be) and problem solved. And you can then even sort by subject!
it wasn’t broken, so why change it to make it worse?

Only because "worse" is subjective. What was perfect for you, was opened at a lower rate by the majority of people on Massdrop.
Are you open to trying to setup the other filter?

First, many of us open emails with "loading images" turned off purposely to stop being tracked.
Here's an older subject line:
Hi Fearlessleader! Announcing New Products: AKG K181 DJ UE Reference Class Headphones, Massdrop x AKG K7XX Audiophile Headphones, SMSL M6 DAC/Amp
and here's the new one
Advanced Sound Alpha Planar Headphones, NuForce uDAC-3 DAC/Amp Combo, Just Mobile HeadStand Avant and more...
You'll notice that the older one DID have the names of new drops listed --- and just began with something that was (a) sortable and (b) filterable.
i.e. The new way is NOT better, even for you. It is ONLY worse for us.

Dear Fearlessleader!
You're totally right - many people do have image blockers turned on, which definitely can make it so that the signal we read in the ab test could have been inaccurate.
The test also indicated that retention and visit days to the massdrop site increased in the group with the new subject line.
I wish everyone looked for the subject line the same way you do and was as remarkably dedicated as you are to the experience and improving it for yourself and others. Sadly, according to the data the majority of people prefer (as measured by increased retention) the new subject line and thus we've kept it.
I agree that the new subject line does not afford for easy sorting. And with that, I've asked engineering to set you up with the old subject line since we still have the code. Let me know if everything is back to normal tomorrow!
All the best, Louis

ANNOUNCEMENT: 5 New Communities!
[image] 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...

Changes in Several Drop Communities and Interests
Hey everyone, There are going to be some changes in the near future for several of our communities and we want to share the details with you as well as explain why we made these decisions. We have recently been taking a fresh look at our offering, and thinking deeply about how we can deliver the best community experiences. We wanted to take a step back and really understand what’s working, and what we think needs to be improved Through feedback from the community about the current user experience, and our own explorations, we’ve arrived at some changes we think are necessary to improve the experience for the majority of our members. Starting today, we will begin to implement some of these changes by adjusting how you can find certain communities and products within our site, as well as merging a couple communities and sunsetting several others. The short version: We plan to improve discoverability on our site for the most active communities like Blades/EDC, Mech Keys...

On the Verge of Deleting My Drop Account
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...

What happened to the Cooking Community?
Did I miss an announcement? Just as I went on to finally pull the trigger on a rice cooker I'm noticing the cooking community has disappeared! Anyone able to update me?

5 Things to Consider When Building a Deck With Fires of Invention
[image] Fires of Invention is the card that struck me as the most powerful card in Throne of Eldraine during the spoiler season. When it works you can be ahead by so much mana. But the difficult part about this card is deciding which other 56 cards to play. In this Standard format, I have almost exclusively been playing decks with Fires of Invention. Here are 5 things that you should consider when building a deck with Fires of Invention. [image] 1. Which colors to play The main versions of Fires of Invention that I have tried out so far are Jeskai and Temur. Jeskai lists usually play a lot of planeswalkers like Teferi and Narset and and is able to get value in the early game using them. I have found planeswalkers aren’t at their best in a Fires strategy because of the limited amount of spells you can play to protect them, but I think they are some of the better options out there for Fires. Teferi is just a really good card and the cheap planeswalkers are good to cast...

Women's Style Community
Drop currently features a Style community, but its products are often intended for men and do not feature appropriate sizes for women. Adding more women's clothing would provide more variety and sizing opportunities for customers.
