@booligoosh I was going to sign up but there's next to no information on what I'm actually signing up for before I sign up. After reading the TOS and privacy-policy I didn't feel comfortable signing up.

I don't know if the obscurity in the sign up proces is intentional or not, just my 2cents.

@nebunez Not intentional! I haven't made a whole giant landing page with lots of scrolling yet, but I do plan to. However, I do have the demo on the landing page, and I was hoping it would make it really clear to people what they're signing up to, cause they can play around with it first.

What kind of information do you think I should add?

@booligoosh What is it? Why should I use it? I still don't know what it is.

@nebunez Interesting, maybe I'll add a section like "is 1Feed a good fit for you?", with some bullet points about what 1Feed is/isn't.

It's essentially an RSS reader, but I don't like to call it that, as it comes with certain expectations and 1Feed is a very opinionated experience. The goal is to let people consume content (i.e. keep up with new articles/posts) quickly and in a more calm way, not to 'be an RSS reader' (i.e. if RSS somehow no longer achieved that goal, I'd remove RSS support).

@nebunez Hey, thanks again for the suggestion! I added a bunch of explainer text to the landing page when you scroll down (including a little button saying "scroll down").

Does the text explain the questions you had well enough?

This looks really good and actually does provide information that I felt was missing. And honestly, 1feed seems more appealing to me now with this information
