I find this kind of annoying actually. On mobile especially.

@_jacksmith Hey Jack. You're right that mobile isn't as optimised as I'd like it to be. This is our MVP launch really and I know there'll be ways to improve the experience especially on mobile & tablet, if you have any specific suggestions I'd love to hear them.

@_jacksmith i agree. It's just as annoying, but probably much less effective.

@_jacksmith @msitver Hey Michael, thanks for the feedback. Other email sign up plugins seems to be just as in your face on mobile from what I've seen. Is it the fact that when you dismiss it it remains in the corner? If this something a lot of people don't like we can look at adding an option to fully dismiss on mobile rather than collapse into the corner. This is a small non-monetised side project MVP and has room for improvement but I'd love to know your thoughts.

@v4violetta Hey thanks for the hunt Violeta! We made the plugin in 60 hours and wrote about our experience on our blog: http://wearecontrast.com/2015/03... Love to hear any thoughts anyone has.

@fredrivett Awesome! I always encourage people to write about their experiences, so maybe others can benefit. :) It also helps users see the product from the creator's PoV.

@v4violetta Definitely! Its really something I want to see creators do more, demistify the creation process so others can understand what's involved in making something.

Looks like a useful plugin. It's would be in tough competition with other similar plugins that have ben around for a while. I would love to see how it evolves. Good job guys. Keep it up :-)

@samatrouh Thanks Sam! Yeah there are some solid options out there already, we wanted to take a slightly different route with slide out on dismiss & three different options for when to display the bar (slide up on page load, slide up when the user scrolls up (distraction free) and slide up after 50% of content has been scrolled). Always up for feedback if you have any thoughts!

@vanierrachel Hi Rachel, Mailjet's not one I've come across before, but i'll definitely add it to our list of services to investigate :D I'll be sure to let you know if we add it to Outstanding Bar

For sure find this less annoying. I think it's all about the color selection.. Any plans on @activecampaign integration?
