I'm curious what folks on the outside have to say, but I can kick this off. From a user feature standpoint: 1) Make it easier to find products, both new and existing 2) Personalize the experience 3) Strengthen the tools for the community 4) More kitties 😸 If we're talking about how to improve Product Hunt's business, I'm always thinking about how to improve our maker-consumer flywheel: 1) Improve retention of maker referred users — this is our growth engine 2) Create long term value beyond the launch so makers have a space to build and communicate with the early adopter community and consumers have more reasons to come visit us beyond the discovery use case 3) More interconnectivity between the features 4) Highlight all the other great content being created on PH

Ship has great potential, but it feels like it is not getting much love. :) Would be great to share a public roadmap for Ship.

@nishith_shah -- +1, Ship feels slightly left out. But tremendous potential -- I'd love to be able to market a Ship page using PH's overall horsepower within and outside PH before a launch. Imagine, even after launching a V1, Ship helping founders/PMs to validate ideas, create a discussion and when the feature is ready, one-click to launch on PH.

@nishith_shah @kirank5a We have some ideas for how we might link the features in Ship the broader PH machine. This is part of a larger strategy to create more interconnectivity across the platform. Stay tuned 📡

Surprisingly, producthunt does not have a full-fledged marketplace with exposure to all members offering their products and services etc., etc. An Appsumo related marketplace with Special pricing and offers is definitely missing from the ProductHunt long-term business model... :) Always looking to purchase special offers and reasonably priced software applications, services and other great opportunities... Re-sellers licensing included... The limited E-commerce offerings throughout the site are not easy to search through... Definitely, missed opportunities just waiting to be developed including selling stuff... JV's and affiliate opportunities, need much more exposure with the right mix of Smart marketing, a few twists here and there, Creativity including lots of other ideas still missing for some food for thought... Group buying memberships through the method of Re-sellers licensing, also missed opportunities to think more about... Review the following thread further down in the discussion for my comments on the subject... https://www.producthunt.com/disc... Also, forum/community edit features for correcting posts would be helpful at times too... :) All the best, David

@david_babins This is an interesting idea. To a certain extent Founder Club plays this role, but it's probably not as fluid as what you're suggesting. It's definitely something we'll mull over — thanks!
