Hey All! My name is a Danielle and i’m a KB addicted sys admin. I have been a lurker in the hobby on and off for the last four years. I built my magicforce in 2016 and by December of that year I had built my first keyboard (Redscarf 68) and bought keysets like they were running outta plastic. I’ve built a collection, sold that collection and am starting to build it up again. If you are new to this community, welcome! If you are a veteran than you know a lot have things have changed. I left this hobby for about a year (most if not all of 2019) and man has it exploded. There are full time builders, streamers and everything in between and I love it. (except when there is a limited GB)

Last week I decided to explore what it would take to open an online MK store. There are tons now, I have a whole favorites folder, filled with members and vendors of this community who sell everything from lube, to switch stations to keycaps and everything in between. There is nothing new under the Sun (except a brand new keyboard amirite?) However something inspired me (another topic for another day) and has driven me for the last 2 weeks to do as much research as I could into multiple aspects of this hobby. MKs are a hobby, but it is also turning into an industry and I’d like to know why and potentially see where it is going.

So I am approaching this in a scholarly fashion (this has felt like a grad school research project). I can make a few assumptions based off my experience in the community but it would be unreasonable to think I knew all the answers.

I am seeking feedback. I do not have any MKB friends IRL, so this is the best way I know how to approach this. In return I am raffling off a few things.

Thank You!

I’m happy to share info regardless, but cool you have incentives. I answered both. Trying to get a handle on this community is a tall order, but I applaud you.

Btw, I would love to see your favorites folder. I’m still fairly new and trying to figure out who to follow and who the real, genuine makers in this space are. Let me know if you’d share. Thanks!

Have fun with my email I guess :slight_smile:

Kinda interesting to see that about half of respondents got into the hobby within the last year. I think it speaks about the explosion this thing had recently. I assume businesses (new and existing) are trying to figuring out how to benefit from such growth. To mutual benefits I hope, because this is crazy how demand exceeds the offer right now. I admit thinking about how I can step into the market, albeit still clueless lol.

I’m one of those new ones… but things ebb and flow so much. Take my input with a grain of salt. A lot of it is scarcity because of COVID logistics issues. Wonder how long that growth will last tho. Will it keep growing? level off? Die back down? The latter outcomes will end up leaving a of extra stuff out there.

Yea, thats why i wanted to make the results public, so others could benefit… the growth is crazy. thank you for participating

Yea I’m interested to see once covid induced boredom is over will the hobby maintain. As far as ive experienced its a pretty addictive hobby, so anyone who’s attention is grabbed will stick around.
