The first exciting steps into this new year.
In the meantime I've been making some small changes to the site, more will probably follow. This all thanks to the great feedback I've been getting from everybody!
You can now undo you votes (even I made a mistake ones :-), links in the comments are clickable and there are lots of other visual changes. Soon you will also start receiving email updates when somebody commented on your idea, or on an idea you commented on (you can disable this on your profile).
The one issue
There is one issue I haven't solved yet and that's how and when it's clear which idea 'won'.
I figured it's best when each idea has the same amount of time to become popular (in January that's 31 days). It's fair towards each idea, because it doesn't matter when you post something, it will have - in January - 31 days. This means that somewhere in the beginning of March it will be clear which idea from January has won and then I'll start executing it.
This is all very logical (at least to me :-) and fair, but nobody understands it!! This could be because I need to explain it better, or simply because it's to complicated…
I thought of lot's of solutions, but in the end I realized it's probably best to go back to the basic and simplest idea.
- Each idea in January, will close on the 31th of January! -
I think this is how most people expect it to work, and unless I (or someone else) finds a different brilliant easy to understand sollution, maybe it's best if this is how it works. It's a little less fair, but if the community that's on the website is constant, a good idea which is posted later in the month will still pop out. And when it's clear that an idea is appreciated but didn't make it because it just didn't have enough time, you can repost it the month after.
So what do you guys think? Yeah or Nej?
Lot's of text in this post, next time I'll make a nice video or something :-)
