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:
Aprons and ovens on! In the Baking Community, home bakers can shop bakeware and swap recipes for the best cakes, breads, pastries, and more.
Board Games Community
It’s all fun and games—literally. The Board Games Community is home to new and award-winning tabletop titles, and the gamers who love them.
Whether the power’s out or you’re looking for keys in the dark, the world’s a little brighter when you’ve got the right flashlight in hand.
PC Gaming Community
Conquer your opponents in comfort. The PC Gaming Community has all the battlestation essentials, from headsets and monitors to keyboards, mice, and ergonomic chairs.
Trading Card Games Community
Connect with a community of Magic fans around the world, stay up to date on new releases, and check out today’s most popular trading card games.
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.
