I’m adding the ability to sync your links to a backend and have an important question: Should I ship this Dismiss button or think of a better design?
@redpandaclub there’s a fine line between cheeky copy and user deprecating copy. “I hate nice things” judges the users decision, which as the user I’d either…
B. Feel bullied
I don’t think either is the intent, but in seeking cheek, that’s my take.
@redpandaclub unrelated non poll. Alignment commentary. Please align these so I can sleep at night. I will stay up thinking about this.
@maique No announcement missed, this is a one person shop so I’ve been sending them out manually at certain milestones when I have capacity for additional users. Getting the server up and syncing links is one of the big milestones so I left myself a note to add you to the next public beta! Really appreciate you wanting to try out Plinky. ❤️
@redpandaclub Thank you, and totally understand. No worries, at all, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it when my time comes 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend too.
@redpandaclub one of the most annoying things in web browsing is a modal pop up that makes you say you "hate good deals" or "I don't want to save money" to dismiss it. While this is cuter in theory it has way too much of the same vibe. Just call it dismiss :)
@redpandaclub It's not your fault but I can't read this in the cheeky way it's meant because my brain associates that lingo with the real dark patterns I have encountered. It immediately makes me think I'm being hustled.
@kyle No you're right, Plinky is actually a very complicated ponzi scheme. But seriously, that makes sense! I hadn't even considered that but immediately got a couple of replies that say it can feel like you're being talked down to, and I very much can see that now.
@objc Fixed! The Sign In With Apple button seems to use a corner radius of 6, which seems like an odd choice so I made it match the other button's 8 point radius. https://indieapps.space/@redpandaclub/109648794213083566
