So I want to get our product feature roadmap finalised once and for all! This obviously requires me taking developers away from their busy schedule to work on the feature plan ahead - so I have to be careful as we’re still finalising code refactoring.
But it’s now time to start looking ahead for the rest of the year, and what we can achieve.
The first thing is - I want our community (both old and new members) to help decide the features we should implement in JellyChip, but I want to lay the foundations that I believe are necessary for JellyChip to attract and maintain millions of people on the platform.
So I’ll be asking users in piecemeal format what they want - I need your help!
The second thing is - like I said yesterday, JellyChip needs a close community. A seriously close community. This means I need to add features to JellyChip that bring people together and get people cooperating/interacting.
Currently we have the ultimate solution in Lifeline where we’re crowdsourcing our giving together, but we need a few more tweaks. Such things as a time pressure on the gift (a timer that counts down to 0 and moves Lifeline onto the next gift if the current one is unsuccessful, with points refunded to users), Stats page for a summary of our giving, leaderboard to connect everyone, and “send to all” Snaps.
Third - I need users to have more control over their giving. Our server constraints mean we can only have one Lifeline at a time on JellyChip - one place to crowdsource gifts. As a result, users must all vote together for the next gift. This means I need to make that vote “meaningful”.
So what I think we’ll do is create a better Gift Voting in Lifeline - and one that allows users to “favourite” gifts. Maybe I’m getting into more detail now but it’ll allow users to put their phones away, and their favourite JC gifts will constantly get voted in. Whether they contributed to this gift or not. They will also be able to sort their gifts in voting by newest or oldest gifts, and most bought or least bought.
More control equals more satisfaction from a user point of view - I know, I feel the same way!
