With all the excitement happening with Guess Game lately, we’ve added an auto email for new guess games whenever one gets created (similar to our auto email when new dish has been added).
Long overdue, but we’ve also added a quick communication settings to the app so our users can select what and when to receive emails from us.
We decided to drop our leaderboard hypothesis for now. The initial assumption was that having a leaderboard and displaying relevant parts of it in the vote page and guess game page will drive our users to perform more actions as they can see in real time what actions they need to do to get into the next spot. However, there were challenges with screen real estate and implementation complexities that we decided against the experiment for now. We definitely need to do more work on the community/gamification side of things as our system doesnt really make much sense right now without the community stuff in place.
