Thanks for the suggestion.
I didn't see any standard for Sarcasm Markdown, so I've decided to go with
Going to my in-laws tomorrow. /s I'm unbelievably excited /s will cause it to look like this:
Very excited to be "pioneering" this. :)
Thanks for the feedback. I'll get another update on this up in a few days with all of your feedback.
Thanks for the suggestion. I added a demo of this using the
fontscale URL parameter: https://minnit.chat/main?embed&fontscale -- messages use
* 1.6 instead of 1.3 in your example, but the rest is as you said.
My main issue is that they can vary wildly with this setup. For instance, if I'm on the chat page directly (https://minnit.chat/main?fontscale) then it looks like this:
However, if I use chrome's devtools to simulate an iPhone 6's resolution (a common resolution of our users), then it gets very small:
If fonts are an issue, do you know if your website has the proper viewport meta tags?
Here is an example of a standard HTML page, without any viewport data:
Look at how it looks when you simulate iPhone 6:
However, if you add the
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> tag, then all of your font will immediately be fixed:
Suddenly, you no longer need to worry about making large headers, and all of the fonts on your website, including your Minnit Chat, will scale properly.
chatdemo-scale.html is not using the
fontscale parameter. This is in vanilla Minnit Chat. No extra CSS trickery needed -- the only difference between the two HTML files I created is the viewport tag, but it makes a huge difference.
All of this said, the best solution is for website owners to use the proper viewport tags, instead of just scaling font to simulate this experience. It makes for a better overall feel, without having comically large fonts for desktop users, and tinier fonts for mobile users. It also prevents users on some phones to have bigger fonts than users on other phones -- you're able to have a much more consistent experience.
Let me know if you have any more questions about this. I'll leave the fontscale URL parameter up for a bit, but I don't plan on it becoming a permanent feature.
Very interesting idea. It might be better to favorite them from the chat itself, instead of from Discover, since I think people should at least visit the chat once to decide if they like it enough to come back.
The away symbol also makes sense -- thanks for the suggestions! I'm working on other stuff at the moment (profile re-design, editing messages, etc) but if you have other ideas, feel free to post. :)
You can put a single MP3 into the Radio box and it'll play.
The issue comes from the fact that almost every website which allows you to upload media disallows the hotlinking of MP3s meaning it won't work in Minnit. So your best bet is to use an MP3 from a website you own, which still creates a high barrier of entry.
