If you're coming from reddit (as I did) you should join Geekhack to fully expose yourself to the keyboard community (if you're into that kind of stuff). No one forum is better than the other and if you're really interested in learning all that you can you're going to have to explore all available options.

Exactly why I came here :) Your name rings a bell... is it the same on reddit?

Yup, same on reddit.  :thumb:

crapposting. Hijacking a thread and posting bullsh*t or whatever. Sometimes also referred to as sh*tposting:

I joined mostly because this place seemed to fit me best.
I've been on reddit for a while and that's initially how I found out about geekhack, but I've already posted more here than I have on /r/mk.
It could have something to do with being a kid in the '90s - all I did back then was chat and post on all kinds of forums like this one.

I lurked both places and this just seemed like the best fit for me, personally.

Other people should join because they feel like they would also belong here, and then make a go of it.

You can't post without becoming a member, hence "joining".
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

At the time this was the only keyboard community that I knew off.  And reddit was not in my cross hairs (still isn't).  Back in 2010 there wasn't much out there.  And in comparison with the GH community, there still isn't.

So, why should someone be compelled to join Geekhack?

Mostly because of Tp.

Or maybe because of the fact that we don't attack people for not using the search button as often as people of reddit do.

Maybe people are asking questions because they want to start a conversation or discussion not just get the answer; something reddit never thinks. Reddit is designed poorly for that though. GH is easier to keep track of updates and statuses of all your favorite artisans and group-buys :D

I honestly cannot think of one real reason to join these days.

Not even the levels of drama there used to be in the old days.
For me it was too be closer to the heart of the artisan scene. There are still some things you don't see in both places.

For drama I go to Discord or Slack :popcorn:

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid.

And you're still here?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I found geekhack before I found reddit's /r/mk and /r/mm, but reddit was just seemed more accessible and the flow of goods on /r/mm offers the illusion of abundance.

I know this is where the history is and this is where you'll find a "fuller" experience in regards to the greater keyboards commune.
