    Note, I proposed it because we have tags for all another sub-phases, like “programming” (engineering), “management”, “marketing”, “sales” and the description of “product” tag is “Products”… My suggestion is for generalist “design” tag, for all related design processes of product development process (ux design or product design included). In other hand “product” tag seems a better fit for links/discuss about product characteristics (“meta”) or specific product like: https://stackingthebricks.com/8-perfect-products-for-designers/ or https://barnacl.es/s/qxrlem/baremetrics_adds_support_for_braintree .

    description example:

    “design”: “Design (product, ux)”

    thanks!

      Maybe “product design” so it doesn’t get confused with pure UX.

      EDIT: Then again there’s already a “product” tag 🤔

        LOVED this talk, thanks for sharing.

          There is a world of difference between the tech stack that a free social app, and a paid business SaaS app. For the latter, requiring payment means that you are almost certainly guaranteed to not be overwhelmed with load when you launch.

            I’m not even at the point where I have one stripe account yet, but congrats on launching the beta Julien!!

              This is really cool - I like being able to shortcut split-testing your own landing page by just tracking the mean of what every other site that split tests does and reverse engineering it :D.

              I’m also fascinated by what I would think are just terrible calls to action - if I get to a site and all it has is “Move Work Forward” and a textbox I’m probably gonna close the tab unless someone’s personally said this is a good product… I can’t imagine coming in from a SERP or a google ad and signing up based on that :/.

                Stuart Brent is a parallel entrepreneur who currently splits his time between growing Vacord Screen Printing and working on MapPlug. His other projects include startupresources.io, conversionchecklist.org, and userinput.io.

                ಠ_ಠ.

                While I can agree with him, it’s a bit hard to take him too seriously when he’s not even committed enough to focussing to change his medium bio.

                1. 4

                  I agree that story is spam and deleted it, as well as the zero-content post this morning by the same user. I have scolded the user, suggested they look at /top for ideas of what to submit, and will ban them if they persist in submitting garbage.

                  I don’t yet see the need for closing signups. I was really overly optimistic about growth for barnacles a year ago. When I start having to kill junk stories on a daily basis or spambots start submitting dozens of stories/comments, I’ll want to revert Barnacles to the Lobsters invite system. Until then, the ease of signup from good users seems worth it.

                    I can relate so hard right now.

                    1. 2

                      Eh, yeah I see the point of it but we’ve only just got to the size where there’s enough people around to actually upvote most links above “1” :(.

                      1. 2

                        Totally - there are of course thousands of ways to fail before even getting to a scalability limitation, and that’s arguably the best problem to have. But, if the additional time needed to build with scalability in mind is nominal, it’s certainly worth considering.

                          That survivorship bias tho…

                            Seems to be a bogus submission. The link is broken and prepending www to the domain shows a “this domain has been suspended” page.

                              I love Derek Sivers' quote:

                              Starting small puts 100% of your energy on actually solving real problems for real people.

                              Product Hunt started out as an email list, and was really birthed out of local meetups.

                              There’s no reason you can’t test your idea out, with real people, in a small form factor (like a workshop).

                                I’m Jose, one of the makers of this calculator. I don’t understand your question, how can I help you?

                                  Now I need an online ROI calculator to multiply?

                                    Ups, sorry for the trouble. It works now!

                                      Internal server error.

                                      (which is a bit surprising – I assumed it was just javascripting some math)

                                      1. 1

                                        thanks Alex! Yeah, you are right, I’ll try to keep it as clean as possible!

                                        1. 1

                                          It can definitely be easy to lose sight of it!
