I wish CC had something like a hobby board Anonymous 137639

I frequent 4chan only because of their hobby discussion variety, but all these "will doing xyz get me a gf" or "women aren't interested in anything but starbucks you can't get a gf anon" annoy tf out of me. I really wish for a female-only hobby discussion board, but so far I haven't seen any hobby discussion in here, not a single thread (I've been on here since december). Is anybody even into some craft (except for occasional low quality drawingt) here?

I think a hobby board would be great too! currently all my hobby discussion happens on other websites, but it'd be nice to have an anonymous hobby discussion

Anonymous 137643

I'd like something like that too, but if it was to work there would have to a specific moid related problems in hobbies/crafts containment thread so other threads wouldn't get derailed constantly. It feels like the majority of threads here are related to man problems, which I don't dislike but wish there was something else just as popular to talk about besides it. Oh well.

You’re not alone in this, i agree. I just want a space where those damn creatures are not mentioned so much

Anonymous 137646

i think all the man-lurkers of crystal cafe like to participate in threads about men, making them more popular than other threads…

sometimes i want a second /b so fun threads don't get buried by threads about men

does anyone here play a stringed instrument like guitar/violin/anything that involves pressing down on a string? I cut my nails as short as I can, and file them a lot, but my nails always hit the fretboard before the string does, making the notes sound all flat.

A lot of the time i have to file my nails really short so the string finally hits the neck before my nails do, but it exposes my nail beds and it hurts.

is there any other way or do i just have to keep pushing through the pain?

I made a thread about science and it had some success, but it's been inactive for a while. CC is not a particularly big board, so your hobby might not attract lots of attention from the regulars.

Anonymous 137651

No clue. Maybe press your fingers with a different angle, so you hit the string with your fingertip laying flat and not just on tip where the flesh meets the nail?

Anonymous 137657



then it touches the other strings and makes them kind of flat sounding D:

I found someone with a similar problem https://justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?topic=40517.0

but she? (unless that person is gay since they mention a husband) found a luthier to modify the instrument, and I don't have that kind of money

many other threads on the same problem say to jut build up calluses on the fingers but gee, it's hard to do that when it's painful to do. or modify the instrument/get a scalloped fretboard.

I found someone with an even worse case of this problem, and top comment was like "switch instrument" XD


It's hard to stay motivated with playing an instrument when every note sounds like crap because my string-pressing abilities aren't that great :O

I hope one day i can sound great though. I love listening to rock and roll music, and I want to be able to compose and play my own cool sounding music

What are your hobbies, OP?

Anonymous 137677

Maybe ask about this on /meta/? A board dedicated to hobbies sounds really nice!

If this board was made I would take crochet character requests

Anonymous 137692

the image of eating keyboard crumbs as seasoning scares me

Anonymous 137693

OP here, crochet/knitting and 3d printing as active ones. Occasionally I sew and work with electronics. Would like to do model building, but there's no kits for my special interest, so I do them myself, usually with crochet.

It's sad that every female-dominated space online eventually turns from a comfortable discussion place to a circlejerk woe-ing about moids. Everytime a good thread is posted, it gets derailed in 2 days as pinkpill and terfposting are bumped constantly, and people don't usually scroll imageboards until the last post. That's why there must be a non-random board where normie issues would not be allowed. I love to complain about trannies and men occasionally, but hobby discussion are much more entertaining.

Anonymous 137702


yeah! and threads like this might help one try new hobbies they hadn't thought of before.

Anonymous 137706

I recently started collecting watches. That's a hobby. I draw too, but it is borderline commercial now.

Anonymous 137716

There is just not enough traffic on this website to justify adding new boards. Even /b/ is super slow.
Instead of complaining just make a new thread about whatever hobby you have and bump it occasionally. But don't be sad if no one else cares cause I really don't think there are that many people browsing here.

Anonymous 137718

I think this is a case where adding a new board would only increase activity and grow the site. everyone can see recent posts from the front page anyway so it’s not like spreading the posts a little thinner across boards would actually harm engagement. dividing the site into sections makes the site more usable.

if anything I kind of want /hb/ deleted and replaced with a hobby board.

Anonymous 137850

I feel like a lot of hobbies could fit on /media/, certainly the creative ones. But I think just a whole board dedicated to hobbies would be nice. I wish media was more active.
Yeah, those could all fit in /media/ imo, maybe start a thread about them there?

Anonymous 137852

I bet a hobbies board would be a lot more active than the media board. There's only so much you can post about media, it feels like hobbies is a broader topic.
