In the military community we hear these words often. They’re supposed to be words to live by, to strive for excellence.
Attention to detail
I’m working on an upgrade to AtMyBase right now which, if I were to title it, I would name it “attention to detail”. What the heck does that mean, right? Essentially, I re-working the place pages, and I’ve give myself 2 weeks longer to tweak and polish the crap out of it, before releasing it.
The place pages are being broken up by their content. The first page you’ll see will be the overview page. It shows descriptions of the place, and previews of reviews, tips, directions, etc…
Then each section is a separate part: reviews, tips, photos, and directions. Each section will beautifully show you the content AND give you elegant tools to help you both understand that you can contribute, and make it easier to do so.
Above and beyond
When I said elegant tools, I meant it. The forms used to contribute are a short as they can be. They’re also immediately noticeable. You won’t miss the fact that there is something you can do on the page. Previously many actions were hidden behind buttons (which many would likely never click).
Then make them operate smoothly. The forms are easy to complete, and easy to submit. They’ll stay out of your way as best they can, while giving you the power to contribute when you want to (and remind you that you can).
The next update is going to be great, can’t wait to release it for you!
