Hey, friends! Thought I’d take advantage of the poll feature here and get some feedback on the Monitor newsletter. If you have any thoughts other than the ones I’ve listed here in the poll, please let me know!

Just so no one else is confused like me - the poll is available via the linked thread

I think the notes at the top are pretty good and add some character to the newsletter. Wouldn’t necessarily do a newsletter takeover BUT it might be cool to do like a small ‘get to know the community’ section where you reach out to people in the community, have them answer 3-5 standard questions and highlight in the newsletter once a week or once a month.

@marquesstewart I love that idea. Are you volunteering to be my first interviewee? :)

Sure - I did something like this for my fantasy football league, and it was fun to do.

@marquesstewart I’ll reach out on Slack when I have a better idea of what types of questions to ask. Thanks!

Rich:

Keep up the good work on monITor.

I would prefer a Dark Mode format.   It happens that there exist “blue light” hazards that are mitigated by Dark Mode.

@Bill_Brutzman appreciate the kind words! Dark mode is way out of my coding wheelhouse, but the newsletter does appear in dark mode in some mobile apps that automatically convert everything to dark mode (Gmail on iPhone is one of them). Will definitely ask around to see if there’s something we can do to make it more widely available!

I voted for tips and tricks but I really enjoy the newsletter for industry news, more of that also please. The colour commentary from Rich should stay too.
