Aaron Parecki looks like it was a success :) Feedback after using the map creation UI: the path tool is amazing for quickly filling up maps, it would be great if it had the option to automatically insert staggered higher-point points, maybe a 20 every 5 and a 30 every 15 or 20. 50s are most fun to place by hand.
@benwerd I’d go for a ruler
.@john_nye all the stores I’ve submitted extensions to do manual reviews. Mozilla:
Safari and Opera have fairly basic, boring forms for uploading stuff, and are extremely picky and unclear about exact image sizes for screenshots and icons. There’s also no “review in progress” page, but otherwise acceptable.
Obviously I’ve not been able to actually submit an extension to the Chrome store, but I’d hope that it’s a damned good experience for $5. If they are doing automatic reviews, then the price becomes even more counter-intuitve. If they’ve automated it, surely it’s cheaper and quicker for them?
.Jack Way no other extension store (mozilla, apple, opera) demands payment, or requires it for verification. Also, Mozilla offers a far superior extension upload experience. Google has no excuse :)
@cstanhope Twitter do indeed shorten all links, they’re just a little bit more honest about it. But I’m certainly going to make the extension unshorten them all too (there’s enough info in the HTML do to that without extra HTTP requests).
@benwerd I refer to it as the “A4 shop window QR code” problem
@w03_ what’s this one about?
@julien51 WATCH OUT! They’re trying to trick you by putting the comma in the wrong place — it’s actually only $93,000,000 :)
Testing POSSE of issue comments to Github
@sandeepshetty @pfefferle cweiske Something new to consider: Jeremy Keith added a webmention sending form to his journal entries to help people who’s websites don’t support webmention already. Being able to test and use webmention through a human visible, interactable form is a huge benefit of using HTTP form encoded data.
We can make this an even stronger case by encouraging success and error responses to be full HTML documents with helpful copy.
