Hey just an idea for a drop. Would it possible to do a drop of some form of computer graphic tablet? Something like the wacom intuos?
I am pretty dissapointed overall in my forst Massdrop purchase. I saw the Fosstex purplehearts up again so i decoded to splurge and buy a pair. The shipping ended up delayed so i requested the shipping address be changed as i was moving in a few weeks. I received no response untill days later when the products finally shipped. I was told they could not change the address because it shipped already and the very slow ground shipping was going to take 2 weeks. Their customer support offered no solutions so i hope the new tennants there enjoy my new headphones...
I would like to see a status bar on drops I participate in or past drops so I can quickly guage where I am in the process or how long a drop took for previously offered products. i would also like information on drops that had defects how many there were and what the resolution was.
It would be great to see bundled product drops for the various categories. For example:
SleepingPad/ Sleeping Bag
Pocket Knife/ Flashlight
Backpack/Trekking Poles
Cookset/Stove
shoes or boots/ socks
....etc, etc
Is it just me or are FreeSync monitors overwhelmingly over represented here vs G-Sync? Most people use Nvidia cards over AMD, but there are hardly any deals for monitors tailoring to this group.
Massdrop please bring Ultimate Guard Flip'n Tray 200+
Fishing section?
It's the most popular (by number of participants) recreational activity in Australia, and pretty popular in the USA (and many other places) also.
One piece rods might not be practical to post, but most fly rods (3-4-5 piece) or travel rods wouldn't be a problem.
Other nescessities (lures, line, reels) and electronics (sounders, epirbs, PLBs) are all fairly compact and easilly postable.
Well, as much as i like the infinite scrolling i liked the pagination on mobile a lot more and why not have the two options so the user can pick one.
I like the new sticky menu but still if a discussion is too long the pagination loads faster for a single page.

When landing on a community page on mobile when swipping right or left would be nice to change between drops, talk, polls, discover and on drop pages between description and discussion.?

Maybe even a button '' Top'' scrolling you to the top of the page on desktop version?
Bring back the vaping section

Agreed, I also dearly love the collaborations and custom manufacturing. I've only partaken in a couple of them but I do believe I've turned at least one person on to every one of the collaboration products. There is serious value in those products.
Another annoying thing is the "VIEW MORE DISCUSSIONS" given at the top doesn't consider the communities one is subscribed to.

Opening MD for the first time a day i've all of my communities given, i open "TALK" in a new tab all my communities still given, reading a discussion folks are likely to hit "VIEW MORE DISCUSSIONS" at the top when done.
This way i'm directed to one community only, considering the community the before read discussion belongs to, the rest isn't given anymore.
Only fast workaround at the moment is to hit back in the browser, which is something i like to forget and gets annoying wondering where all the rest had gone.
Can we have a in general talk tab kinda sick about having to write about mech keys only, also maybe there should be a tutorial tab where members could make guides. Thanks for actually caring guys:3
Maybe a community for kids (Toys/wears/accessory's...)
Maybe a community for Cycling
Maybe a community for Woman since all we now is that woman is the key factor that keep the economy going, they buy a lot
I think that the search bar is limited
make an option for weekly promotional emails rather than daily
Made a separate post before seeing this: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/388/suggestion-review-or-rating-system-for-drops
Guys, this is all great stuff. Keep it coming.
A way of doing meta-polls? To avoid misusing the product ones e.g. https://www.massdrop.com/vote/Should-MD-leak-a-rough-schedule-of-keyset-drops
Here's an easy to implement suggestion (measured by how many source code lines need to be changed).

All around the place, there are questions like this:
"Is <thing dropped> compatible with <what I got now>?"
"Does anyone agree with me into <brain waves converted to words>?"

Many times I find myself wanting to answer a "yes", or a "no". Still, most times I choose not to interfere at all, trying to avoid posting a single word (i.e. posting without adding a point to discussion). Some times, people end up receiving no answer at all, or receiving an answer days later, just because everyone thinks like I do.

I think it would be beneficial if we had a big green, all capital letters, "YES" reaction, along with all other "emotions". One would naturally propose a big red, all capital letters, "NO" reaction as well, but I think "NO"s better be justified and/or provide alternatives.

Here you go; An additional "reaction" which will relief discussion system (and will disturb "endorsement farmers").
Maybe we could add a section where we could suggest new communities. I have a community in mind but am unsure where to post it....

If anyone is wondering, the community is cycling.
