@nassaraf I find it hilarious that β“’β“£β“β“β““β“žβ“€β“£ is totally unreadable in your comment

@realdeanward LOL you're right, but not for the reason you think! You get a heavier font weight when you reply on @ProductHunt vs an initial comment. Looks awesome in email too! πŸ‘‰ https://www.cloudhq.net/c/b60e74...
@nassaraf Not really. I think it looks terrible personally. I would probably immediately assume such a message is spam. Do you have any data to suggest people actual open these emails faster?
kinda of reminds me of all unopened emails in my junk folder β€Ύ\_(ツ)_/β€Ύ

@antonio_bologna Oh no! Not our intention at all! It's kind of like emojis being used in the email subject line... some people love it 😻(guess which camp I'm in 😏) , and some don't. To each their own. But please LMK if you have any ideas to help stand out in an email that is more obvious (and preferably more accessible for people across language barriers). We try to release a new Chrome extension at least 2x a month, if not each week when we're on a roll (!!), so you might be the person who gives us the next golden idea! I'm all ears πŸ‘‚πŸ½ and my dev team is ready to build! πŸ’ͺ🏽
What information do you collect from the users of this extension? Do you collect email subject lines, or recipients' email addresses, for example?

@jim_duggan We do not collect any information. Our Privacy policy is simple. Any information we receive from you will not be shared with anyone else, and we'll never use it for anything that is not *absolutely* necessary to provide the service.
@jim_duggan Good morning, Jim! As @sdizdar1 said below, we don't collect any information that we don't need in order to provide a service (we have over 65 of them), and in this service, there is no information needed. 1) Here's our privacy statement: https://cloudhq.net/privacy 2) Here's our security statement: https://cloudhq.net/security
@jim_duggan @sdizdar1 I think you are saying two different things: you do not collect anything, and you collect only what's needed. Is nothing needed?
@jim_duggan @platar For this extension, there is no need to collect anything (no need to enter CC number, create account, etc.)
@sdizdar1 @platar @nassaraf So the email subject line actually gets sent to your servers? That's surprising. I don't see why it should. There's really nothing to process. The character substitution should all happen locally.
Omg, that's bad idea for normal email user.

@ariel_jedrzejczak When I see e-mails with headlines like this, they go right into my spam folder

@ariel_jedrzejczak @j_____________n Yep, it also presents a major accessibility issue for those who need screen readers to use a computer. A great Chrome extension would be one that automatically reports any email using unreadable text like this as spam, because, only spammers do this.
@ariel_jedrzejczak Can you explain why? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I use it to communicate something urgent to my employees. It stands out immediately, and that's the exact point of this extension. @j_____________n Hi Julien! What would you do to make your emails stand out? This is just an option that we're providing you, but it sounds like you have a better way? @hunter_trujillo Hey Hunter, You're absolutely right! Accessibility is really important to us. We're heads down on a workaround right now so that screen readers will be able to translate what's being written and it should be live within a week (a beta version will be done by tomorrow!) 😊
@ariel_jedrzejczak @hunter_trujillo @nassaraf I'll try to add some contructive criticism: it's a practice that's been used by spammers and scammers for years now, so my immediate reaction to seeing those is: this is fake / a scam / spam. I believe that you have more open rates, but do they convert? You should not have to resort to tricks for people to open your e-mail. It's like people who think that adding "Urgent" to their e-mail subjects will make me want to open it more, when it's having the exact opposite effect.
I'm a big fan of CloudHQ. But I immediately said "it looks like spam." Then I read all of the comments here. If it didn't have this connotation I'd LOVE to give it a whirl. Gonna have to wait until the general consensus isn't overwhelmingly "spammy." :(
@stephenalan Hey Stephen, Thanks for being a fan! 🌟 As you know, we always try to release something of value to our users. So, I have an ask: Can you try it with a friend / colleague and see if you get a faster response? My assumption is yes, but would love confirmation. β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½
@nassaraf Hey there! I think you're right. A friend/colleague would definitely open it faster (is that the intended use case?). I guess I was thinking perhaps mixing it with your Campaigns feature for email marketing that the result would be less favorable.
@stephenalan Everything is testable at this point. :)
