She contacted me on smoke and the discord to send me my #prize and I responded with my address.
I definitely started checking the mail more often!
Whee! It arrived!
She sent me this cool magnet of her artwork and promotion of smoke.io! Along with a very nice card explaining her high hopes for the platform.
I recently moved into the place, and so it's not furnished, so this is the first personal touch in the kitchen or living room. My first magnet for my first fridge!
The more I look at it the more I like it. The strong contrast of the light background and the sharp shadow of the style really makes the focal point of the glass piece 'pop'. Almost like an optical illusion. I've noticed that the aesthetics of the logo and phrase are also well designed.
What she wrote in the card almost immediately came to fruition. My roommate said,
Wow, someone actually sent something to you? That like, makes it real.
Or something similar. He did end up signing up! He hasn't posted or voted yet, but he also registered during a pretty busy time in his life. I also respect if new people take a minute to take in the system that they're dealing with, lurking a bit. He gave some good feedback that an APP would probably really increase membership, which I do believe is on the roadmap for smoke if I recall correctly. Just the fact that it would decrease one step between people on their device and smoke, and make a more intuitive interface for handheld devices, was his line of thinking.
A coworker/friend that came over the other day also saw the magnet and mentioned it! Although he didn't seem that interested in joining, even though he'd probably be a contribution. I think the guy's mother would actually be a prime candidate as a great member, and I'll be sure to mention that to him. I'm pretty sure she was talking about cooking up some edibles for Christmas Dinner.
Thanks again to @tecnosgirl! I hope everyone on Smoke has a great end of the year and a wonderful start to 2019!
