I don't want to go into complaining but I feel a bit disappointed with pioneer. We hit 26 in Europe and finally climbed into the global rank.
This week we had a huge release, delivering 2x amount of work we expected with several new huge features, slack notifications, profession builder, exceeded most of our goals, launched a successful open source initiative, hit an interview with a newspaper, called 80 prospects and talked over a potential investor.. All of this I described in the update nicely structured. We bootstrap of a couple thousand $$..
And I was downvoted by literally everyone... and we fell very low which means we were also downvoted over lower players primarily..
I am surprised like hell because usually when I vote, there is maybe 2-3/20 startups which get the type of progress we had this week.. and with much less progress last week we were upvoted 7/10.. and then I look at who has been voting... most of the people who left the feedback were next to us on the leaderboard before the voting, either global or local.. It looks as if we were strategically downvoted, and I am not sure if that's how it should work.
I am trying to be fair when judging other startups and I don't even look if they close to us on the leaderboard myself, now I feel stupid wasting 4 weeks doing updates :/
