If you give me a detailed review, there’s no way I’m going to spam it with a “Thank you” unless of course it’s just all about, “Doing great work blah blah blah”.
Second, there’s no incentive for me to “spam” it with a thank you whereas a spammer has a motivation to spam someone’s question (yes I ask for specific review) which is gaining more points. Just so you know, it’s completely optional to leave a review, but spammers do it anyway for the points.
I’m not sure how the point you made is valid by any extent. One actual spammer is exploiting for more points, the other “spammer” (the person just saying “thank you”) is doing it out of courtesy. The ground is not leveled by any means in your comparison.
I use GA as well and that’s true, the numbers do take a big hit. Even Firefox without Adblock blocks GA so GA is one of the most useless liability of all times. You need to comply with the EU laws that GA by default requires.
If we're having to comply with EU GDPR laws, then at least we should use something like Mixpanel that could provide better analytics. And if you don’t want the hassle of complying with EU GDPR laws with the cookie banners and stuff, SimpleAnalytics and Plausible are great alternatives. Both of them are paid though.
However, they comply with EU GDPR laws and they aren't blocked by scripts, it includes a no script tag so your actual numbers won’t take a hit even if JS is disabled or Adblock is on.
If you come across any startup deal for either of them, it’d be great if you could share that. I’ll do the same if I come across any deals for them.
Exactly my issue with these Pioneer updates. What’s more annoying is that they sit right within updates from startups and projects that are making actual progress and then we need to vote on either a robotics company that made progress and a guy with no landing page, it’s a bit weird.
Another thing, most people just do the reviews for the points so sometimes they won’t even look at your progress, they vote randomly and put in, “Great work, good luck!”. I’ve got this review multiple times and I always ask for feedback in that feedback field so I’m pretty sure they are just doing it for the points.
That’s really inconvenient to be honest. I signed up with Twitter so I doubt I would share that. I could share the email-based login but then again, it’s inconvenient.
Tweeting about my startup, opinions on things happening in the tech world, occasionally random tweets.
