What is a hobby?

In r/HobbyDrama, this is obviously a huge factor in the drama. What makes a hobby is a very deep philosophical question; for the purposes of our community, a hobby community is "a group of people who are connected by their active participation in a particular activity during their free time for personal enjoyment".

Campaigning for political causes is not a hobby, because you don't campaign for personal enjoyment. Being internet famous is not a hobby, because there is no community. Following a social media account is not a hobby, because you are not actively participating.

Fandom drama must involve active participation in a hobby to qualify as hobby drama. Watching TV shows and sports, viewing Let's Plays and streams, and listening to bands are not considered hobbies for the purpose of this sub; however writing fanfic, drawing fan art, participating in roleplays, doing cosplay, playing video games, participating in sports groups, and composing music would be.

What is NOT a hobby?

Some examples include: drama related to a Twitch Steamer or YouTuber; current news and events; watching TV Shows, movies, and sports.
