Hey dear people at Netlify!
In general I very much love what you are doing and because of that I also just needed to write to you today.
I logged in to a clients Netlify account and saw this big new element with the faces of some random influencers advertising “Netlify Stories”:
“Share your web development journey with other Netlify users and become world famous as as a Netlinfluencer! Read the announcement blog post!”
I feel that this is really the wrong place to advertise something like this.
This is a dashboard, not a billboard.
This feels like Wordpress, where all kinds of installed plugins would force all kind of unwanted content on you.
This feels like an intrusion of something into the dashboard that doesn’t belong there.
Maybe there were elements like this before there as well? If so, I didn’t see or notice them. Normally the notification bell is reserved for informing about new features, betas, etc.
I just wanted to tell you that and don’t require an answer. I actually created an account to be able to communicate this, but won’t be in here to discuss this.
Just an opinion and maybe some food for thought.
All the best and have a wonderful week.
