First time on Drop since it was MassDrop: Mech & Audio only?
Hi all, today I came to Drop.com for the first time since it was MassDrop.com. I've been looking around and it seems like the site has narrowed its focus to mechanical keyboards and audio gear. Is this accurate? I know I bought some "everyday carry" items and used to follow camera gear, watches, pens, knives, and some other things. Not a problem if that's the case. I'm mostly interested in mechanical keyboards but just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something, or if the other stuff split off to another website. Thanks.
Has Drop become nothing but a keyboard/headphone retail company?
Recently, newsletters have been barely anything but overpriced keyboards and awful-looking keycaps--with the exception of a single knife in each email past a week ago. I feel like this site has entirely lost its roots--and will likely pay for that with their business. It's going to eventually wind up not dropshipping items, which would otherwise pass savings on to customers, and will instead be the sticker store of keycaps. I'll admit, sure, the majority of the userbase probably doesn't mind the fact that you've moved to be a purveyor of only that type of product, but it doesn't make much sense to eliminate the rest of your would-be customers. You could only stand to lose in terms of potential profit with the business model Drop has had in the past; i.e not putting in an order if a product doesn't receive enough interest. To be perfectly honest, I'm shocked that this even has to be said. Reducing types of products on the site means reduced web traffic; reduced web traffic...
I really like this website - is it built on an available framework? Especially like the Community features. Or is it custom code? Just curious. I checked reveal code and it didn't look familiar with me, though I only know how to identify a few frameworks. Thanks and again, love the site!
After years of collecting knives I finally decided to get a Ka-bar Dozier in D2. While I don't like D2 since I live in the tropics, the well-executed blade coating convinced me to pull the trigger and I'm glad I finally did :) This is a lightweight quality piece for a low price, the lock-up and blade shape is solid too! Here it is with my Drop titanium flashlight.
