I didn't know pubski until I read your message. Love it. :)

Haha thank you! You'll post in your own time. :) Happy to have you on there!

Appreciate hearing that! It's also much more calm than traditional social media. I like it when it's slow and meaningful.

As always, very profound and thought-out comment. Thanks for that! I'm going to keep improving the core parts and UX/UI during the alpha, and learn along the way. :)

I've paid close attention to the very accurate points you touched upon, and made a good deal of refactoring on the presentation side.

> It's been suggested that the optimal length of a line (which, in our case, is also the width of the entire column) should be somewhere between 50 and 75 characters. Given Eric's observation that, on average, characters in fonts are ~25% wider than its corresponding `0`, and assuming we're aiming for the average of 60 characters per line, consider setting the width of your column to `45ch` and see where it leads you. Remember that it's all in service of readibility, so if it consistently feels off to you, tweak the values until reading is pleasant.

This caught a lot my interest. I have two variations right now:

https://midnight.pub/ (the main one)

https://midnight-79pczempx.vercel.app/ (this one is 45ch)

Would love to get your perspective on which one feels better to read in.

I also wonder if you have some ideas on places I could potentially advertise to, in order to get onboard more people for the alpha and see at a little higher scale what usage could be like.

You have been the greatest help so far on the project, much thanks for your time and expertise!

This. Is. Amazing! I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to write such an in-depth and to-the-point feedback. I'm lucky to have found you, and will make sure to read through each point.

One that I'd love to hear more about is the double-column layout. Actually, I changed it yesterday. Here is a version that had only a single column: https://midnight-39fob05tw.vercel.app/

Do you think this one is better? My main motivation was on bigger screen, to show more content at once, but I'm not sure it adds much value.

This is an amazing feedback, thank you so much for that! I went ahead and updated the username length to 20 character maximum. Let me know if you think I should increase that.

I'm currently working on polishing the UI, you make a real valid point with button who don't look like buttons.

I would love to get your feedback on other parts as well if you are interested. :) Thank you so much for taking the time, I really appreciate it.

That's actually highly accurate!

In a way, but without the followers & immediacy of twitter. Midnight's here to be calming. Thanks for checking it out!

That sounds about right...

Curious to see how all of that will unfold...

This is insane! Brings back what radio used to be, but online. Really nice.

I still remember the excitement when I was in my teens whenever a new LOTR movie came out. The production was incredible. It made me travel like nothing else.
