Do you have a progress bar or measure of how close we're getting?

Donating to hubski makes me feel good.

You will feel good too.

Yes, see that sliver of orange on the bottom? That's progress!

Make the bar bigger. I just doubled yer damn donations and got zero pixels as a reward.

Thanks! I think I'll have to double the length. As it stands, I think it is $100 per pixel.

Maybe instead, the background could change from gray to Hubski blue if you've donated this year.

I'd make it a single / double pixel line stretching from the f of feed to the s of badges, below the letters. It's arount 400px wide on 1080p, which means that every $6 moves it a pixel.

I would also tell the user what part of the monthly goal they will be paying; it makes the comparison in value with Netflix and other media subscriptions easier.

I like this idea.

Naaah. Put on your gamification chops. I don't want a blue bar once, I want that thing to explode like fireworks when I give it money and droop like a tree in need of watering when I don't. Obviously, these are extremes you need not pursue but FFS give us a bone.

Ok. I'll ruminate on that.

strangely.... on dark (which is the ONLY acceptable visual theme) I can't see jack diddly bubkis.

BUT - now I do see the totals in text. so thanks!

mk  ·  1675 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Will fix that.

CORRECTION - I am an idiot. I can see it fine on Dark. I was looking in the wrong place.
