Suggest a new Interest

  • Under Consideration
Is there some way to suggest a new Interest that you can stumble in? Like add a Recipes/cooking interest? There isn't an interest for this, and I would like to add this for stumblers.

Food/Cooking already is an available interest (and 1.7 million stumblers are following it!). You can find it here: http://www.stumbleupon.com/interest/F...

Have you tried using the Explore box to stumble more specific types of recipes and food? For more on using that feature, see http://www.stumbleupon.com/help/stumb...

Hope this helps

Hi there Andrew,

You can find more Interests using the Explore box or going to the Discover tab.

Thank you Gladsdotter for your great answer.

Hope this helps!

Even if the interest was indeed there, that still leaves the first question, how do we suggest new interests.

May I suggest the interest of yaoi anime for the adult interests? Because I have to be honest with you, hentai anime just gives me a lot of women with extremely exaggerated chests.

Thank ya. ^_~ b *thumbs up*

I didn't even notice it, it's so tiny, I stumbled once, and nope, all out of stumbles. Did you just create that, because I have to be honest, I'm an incredibly lazy stumbler. :P

it's been there the whole time, but it'll only contain what other stumblers have tagged with 'yaoi anime', which may well be so specific as to not contain a whole lot.. perhaps it is your duty to add more?

also, if it's expected to contain mostly pornography, you may have to also 'follow' it before it'll return any results (and have your content filter set to allow for adult stumbles).

ah, looks like http://www.stumbleupon.com/interest/yaoi has plenty of content for you (and, as above, you'll need to 'follow' it before you can stumble it).

Same error, no more stumbles for you. I think the problem is no one knows about these interests, even before the UI change, I never saw those two interests before in the lists. I don't think it's too specific, there's a gay/transsexual/bi/straight sex interests in the interest page, all pretty popular, but neither of these were there. Also, my duty to, hope not, I don't have all day to look at yaoi. :P

Yes, the Interest List is limiting. It takes a long time to match article with an interest and often the closest match is not the best match. For instance, there's not even an interest listed for "Entertainment," just "Entertaining Guests."

Stumbleupon should allow readers to add new interests.

I just stumbled a post that has to do with prosperity and the law of attraction. There was not ONE interest in SU that described this article! I ended up listing it under "health" because I couldn't figure out anything else. Pitiful!

And this is not a one-time problem. I encounter it frequently when stumbling people's stuff.

I agree. The initial question in this thread was never answered. How does one suggest additional interests? There are so many lacking... such as social media.

Oh boy do I agree? YES! YES! YES!
As an animal advocate I'd like to suggest "Animal Rights" because the Animals category is far, far too big and really doesn't cut it!

Create a category that is named just "Comics" in addition to "Comic Books" category.


So I know there is a billion categories already and we can't have the perfect category name for every page out there but I still wanted to suggest this. There are a ton of internet comics out there and they don't really fit into "Cartoon" or "Comic Books". Most people's perception of comic books is something superhero/action related that is not humorous, and Cartoons are something you watch not read, but Comics people see as being the funny comic strips you see in newspapers (back in the day when people actually read them. They do still exist, right?). I figure you already have a billion categories so why not just make it a billion and one.

I would love to see a category for costumes. It's an art form, more than just an annual thing for Halloween. It could cover theatre costumes and costume makeup as well.

Add Leadership to Interest.


Please add Leadership as an interest category. Currently, people have to put articles under Management/HR or Business but leadership is extremely popular on its own (actually more popular in Google search than Management or HR. It is a much bigger interest area than just business or management or HR.

Nostalgia/Decade Interest.


I wish there was something akin to the "Rewind" section of buzzfeed.com

Or several sections dedicated to various decades (90's, 80's etc)

You should make a category for weaponry (non-firearm) like knives, swords, and other historical arms..


I think that there are people out there (like myself) who are either interested in, or collect historical weaponry expanding anywhere from smaller knives and daggers to swords, maces, axes, clubs, etc. Being able to stumble through some of them would be exciting to me and I'm sure others would agree. It could even expand into catapults and larger things like that. I also know that there are plenty of articles written on the impact of certain pieces of weaponry or armor (e.g. Greek Hoplon) and their historical significance. It seems like a category with a lot of potential, that could be both for fun and educational.

Given the gazillion people who practice yoga, I was really disappointed to find it wasn't available as an interest.

Interesting - when I did a search in the interest search box, it didn't show up - much to my surprise. Glad it exists. And something needs to be fixed in the interest search...

Drew, 

Did you use the search bar on http://www.stumbleupon.com/discover/interests/all? Can you provide a link to the page where you used search to look for Yoga? Thanks!

I used the search bar when I clicked Add Interests at the bottom of the Interests list. Screenshot here: http://gyazo.com/77655fd84e437dd07174...

Looks like a usability issue - I'm a techie and that didn't make sense that I wouldn't find what I wanted after clicking the Edit Interests link and then seeing a search box..

Thanks Andrew,

Yes that is definitely a point of confusion. That search bar only searches your Interests on that page. So for example if your had 100 Interests and wanted to find Yoga quickly you would use that. Sorry for any confusion on that and I'll definitely pass that along to our design team.

Especially given that I go to that screen from the link that says "Edit Interests" - which is what I would think would bring me to a page that allows me to add new ones.

Create an Interest.


You should create a "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" interest. You'd be surprised how large it is on the internet. It's not just for little girls anymore. Many adults watch it. Google "mlp: fim" if you don't believe how large the fandom is. I dare you. Bronies are everywhere.

Add Android and Google Topics/Categories.


Would love to see the most popular operating system in the world added as a topic choice ... as well as their parent company being added. Google and Android make more headlines than MacOS, so we definitely need a topic. Additionally, Firefox has it's own topic while Google Chrome lacks a topic, despite Chrome having a huge advantage in users. It seems adding a "Google" topic would be the simplest fix, but I'm pushing for Android AND Google being added as topic choices.

Is there a place to recommend new interest categories?.


Some of the information I want to share doesn't really fit into any of the predetermined interest categories. Is there a way to suggest new categories?
I'm thinking specifically of "Rockabilly" and "Vintage Style" or something along those lines.

Roadtrips/ roadtripping should be an interest! About to embark on one now and I'm stuck looking through camping and survivalist categories. Maybe you also think that is a cool idea?

Add Wordpress as an interest?.


Would it be possible to add Wordpress as its own interest category? It is quickly becoming industry-standard as far as content management and web design are concerned.

Right now I am adding many pages about Wordpress but am adding them to the web development interest.

If not thanks anyway and I love SU.
Cheers

Endangered Species.


Please give Endangered Species their own category.
Surely Endangered Species should have their own Interest category by now. It's 2013 and there are thousands of endangered species! At the moment we can only submit an Endangered Species page in the Animals category, and the only way to find which ones they are is to spend ages wading through the massive Animals category. Surely Endangered Species deserve their own category, and maybe if they had one it might help them to stop being endangered!

You should add a category for "Typography" or "Fonts" I have been posting stumbles to fonts on here and have a difficult time finding an appropriate category. Thanks!

Yes, it would be great to be able to add new Interests! I looked everywhere on StumbleUpon for a Tribal Fusion Belly Dance interest, but the best I could find were a few different and not very good belly dance "interests." I would also love to create a Dragons page with art and myths about dragons, but nothing's there either. Stand up comedy and studying tips might also be cool.

I'd like to see Vintage as a whole category, maybe with subs such as Clothing, Furniture etc ; b
