    The placeholder for entering a phone number shows a formatted number, but entering the # doesn't auto-format. And a country code isn't required, either.

    It looks like email addresses for public group members are publicly accessible. Perhaps this could be a configurable option?

    After posting a comment that has a photo, it appears as a broken image until refreshing the page.

    Ok done spamming this thread for now! :)

    THANK YOU! I'll work on these tomorrow. 

    I'm excited to have some feedback  🕺🎉🎊

    So cool to see this coming together! I want more clarity on what I can do when I land on the page - like what is booklet, what is this community page I'm on, who can see this, what's the purpose? And then also some low-lift way to react to posts where I don't have to take the scary first action of writing up a whole thoughtful message to someone I might not know on the internet.

    You need to be a member of a group and logged in to see a person's email addresses. I plan to add some anti-scraping measures shortly to keep it secure. Ultimately, I'm trying to avoid building an in-app messenger - I'd rather that people message each other 1:1 off-platform. 

    I've considered making email address visibility configurable. But, I think that making it accessible creates a degree of identity verification - e.g., it gives one way for people to verify that they are who they claim to be. 

    I'm building Booklet for strong multi-email support. So, you could potentially have a different email for each group for privacy purposes. 

    What do you think is the best approach here?

    I've been thinking about this. What do you think is the best solution?

    Showing your photo twice in a row signals "two comments" - which is accurate, but the data display is a little sloppy.

    I can't just filter by "unique" because two people talking back-and-forth should be easy to distinguish from the view. ("Scott commented, then Ariel commented, then Scott commented" should show three photo bubbles, not two - right?)

    I could de-duplicate repeated photos. But, the issue that rises here is that there are two comments - so would showing just one photo not convey that there are two underlying comments?

    I'm not sure! What do you think? 

    (Somewhat related: I'm not adding an affordance to tell you when a thread has unread comments. So, maybe thinking about that would make this answer clearer!)

    Just pushed a fix for this broken image issue. Thanks!

    Great feedback - thanks, Emma! I'll work on some ways to address these.

    Thanks for the feedback! This issue of duplicated commenter photos should now be fixed 😊

    I have a general philosophy that all coding problems should have an elegant solution, otherwise I'm probably solving it poorly. Researching an elegant way to handle this was hard  because I didn't know how to describe the problem. But, I have learned that this solution can generally be described as "eliminating consecutive duplicates", and there is an elegant solution for it in Ruby!

    IMO, it's not solved 😅 I don't think the same person should show multiple times. Seems we have different ideas of what the avatars should show though.

    You: The sequence of who wrote messages
    Me: The sequence of the last time someone interacted with the thread

    Slack does the latter very well.
