#buildinpublic

We encourage our makers to build in public and we could stand to take our own advice. We've done this in the past, but it's time to restart the tradition of sharing our product updates with our users. We want you to see what's going on under the hood and keep you posted on the latest and greatest features. We'd love to hear back from you if there is a change you are particularly excited about (or not). Drop us a line in the comments!

October updates 🍂🎃

New product post flow, including a new way to schedule launches Now it's easier for makers and hunter to post new products. This starts with better documentation for newcomers, as well as a slick new flow for both new and veteran users alike. An improved scheduler tops it off and helps users maximize the time their launch is on the homepage. All this should make launching a product faster and easier than it's ever been. Adjusted unsubscribe copy in the footer of our newsletter It is more straightforward to manage your email preferences (or just unsubscribe) from the newsletter. This will be rolled out to all emails soon, we have to make a few tweaks to get the rest of this working just right. Redesigned homepage We clean up pretty nice. We've been making improvements to our design language across Product Hunt, but we held off on making a big change to the homepage until now. We are proud to introduce a clean new design that will look great across platforms. Fixed follower notifications You might have noticed an uptick in notifications from users you follow. It turns out we had a small bug preventing users from getting all their friends' posts. Have fun supporting the folks you follow. It's a secret We've silently released a new feature that we will widely release at the end of the year. See if you can find it. *Hint: we're making products more evergreen*

This is an amazing update, @ahiggz! I am so glad you continued the tradition and started posting product updates. This kind of transparency gives people the feeling that something is going on PH, that is not a stale swamp. I like the new homepage re-design, looks minimalistic. Also, it's good to have community topics in the sidebar, which change focus from products only to the community and people. Regarding the follower notification, I was honestly wondering if everything is alright there. Because from weeks ago or even months, I started getting fewer notifications. Anyway, I am always happy to be part of something evolving and improving. Definitely, we can feel your fresh energy, Ashley! Keep it up! Peace,

I like the new home page @ahiggz . The seemingly infinite paginated reverse chronological scroll is cool and performant. It will be interesting to see how often I go back multiple days to see things I've missed. It would be fun to be able to jump to a particular date too.
