Here's my take after going through 117 week cycles of the tournament.

Firstly, to answer your question. Yes - you can lose points after Sunday when you submit your update. As players start to vote on your update after you submit, it will adjust in points accordingly. This is in addition to the change in points you may get depending on how may players vote for your feedback later in the week.

However, my honest feedback if you have an aim to climb the leaderboard, is to ignore it completely. I've spent many weeks working to decode what all these points mean, and to be frank, honestly they don't really mean much.

Yes, the better the update, the higher you climb. But that doesn't mean the more progress you make, the higher you'll climb. Or the better your project, the higher you'll climb. At the end of the day it's real people voting on your update, and unfortunately the flashiest and most tailored updates are what get the points. It's all down to choice psychology and mainly about how you structure your update; emojis, metrics, the lot.

My advice to you would be spend a few weeks and pretend the leaderboard doesn't exist. Focus on what you're building and the rest will follow. As a note, selection to be a Pioneer is not correlated to your position on the leaderboard, or how many points you have.

A few I've tried:

Adalo
Really smooth for making mobile apps, not as much functionality for web apps. A lot of limitation with how much control you have over your product design however.

Bubble
Bubble.io is by far my favourite, also seems to be the most powerful of all the no/low code tools I've tried. There's a lot of things that are technically not really possible with Bubble, but there's always small tricks you can use to get around them. Mobile apps can be built with the same complexity but are a bit fiddly to figure out. Can take a good bit of trial and error but most projects are usually possible one or or another with Bubble, would highly recommend. Unlimited design flexibility is also one of it's largest benefits that most builders fall behind on.

Integromat
My favourite tool after Bubble. This isn't a front-end app builder but can run your backend really well and is a more expanded version of Zapier. Workflows are linked up in a no-code style with the same flexibility to use code if you need. This runs a lot of our backend workflow and can scale really well. Zapier is a good alternative but is much more pricey.

Webflow
Go to website builder if you want something beautiful. Very steep learning curve and will drive you insane with all it's little quirks, however it's more of a love hate relationship. Wouldn't really build out a web/mobile app with it though, I've done so previously and ran into a few brick walls when scaling.

Went on Mat's podcast about a year ago now. He's super cool, so definitely shoot him a message. You're living under a rock if you haven't seen him somewhere over the internet yet!

I think we need a Clubhouse Pioneer club!

You may be able to hold the lead on the Pioneer leaderboard, but I'm coming for that #1 spot on Frontier. Watch your back Brad :)

John_CropSafe.io · 335d ago

Same to you! It should update again sometime tomorrow morning!

Karma points are entirely based on your Frontier comment and posting history. This gives me an idea, gonna throw together a quick project to track Frontier points.

Basically, we send all the information collected about a user that just logged their details on our waitlist to Integromat. It's a connector that will act as a pipe to import this data into Airtable. Works pretty much exactly the same as Google Sheets or Excel. On the table we use different filters to see new entries or carry out analysis such as where are the most popular user countries? Or what crops are these potential users growing?

At CropSafe, we use a form on our Webflow website or a Typeform to collect leads, then use Integromat (Zapier also works) to send these leads to Mailerlite to engage them with email campaigns, as well as to an Airtable base for further cohort analysis and research by us.

I've heard WaitlistAPI is also a great tool! https://getwaitlist.com/
