Dear Moot ʚ💛ɞQuestions & Suggestions
Here we go again! Some of these are going to be ones that I've previously posted and some will be new ones that have come to my attention. I'm mainly making these posts because although I love Moot I do see things that could be better, and having known people I've introduced to this app that found it boring, I'd like to also share their feedback. Hopefully Moot sees this ʚ💛ɞ If you agree with any of these I'd really appreciate it if you'd share this post to hopefully bring it to attention to the wonderful Moot staff!
1. 𝙵𝚎𝚊𝚝𝚞𝚛𝚎𝚜 ☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:* Although Moot is gradually adding features, it doesn't have many and it mainly only has the posting feature, the dms and the group feature. They have added the Q&A feature but I don't think it is used very often and I don't personally consider it very useful. When chatting to my boyfriend about this issue, he highlighted the fact that he could easily do these exact same things on other social media such as Amino or Instagram. It would be really great if Moot could add something big and/or unique to the app, to attract more users. Aside from this, I think it would be nice to add little features such as an online/followers online count for users to see how many others are online and when is the best time to post, as well as a story feature like on Instagram and Snapchat, for smaller updates/posts that don't require or necessarily need a full post. I have spoken to Sin of Greed Ban and Rainnanners on these and they also agree these features would be useful! 2. 𝙰𝚎𝚜𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚝𝚒𝚌𝚜 ☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:* Moot has a simple look, maybe a little too simple. For many new users I have talked to, they feel it is a little bland and could really do with some retouching. I think it would be great if we were able to customise the colours of our profiles and posts more, and have more options when creating profiles and posts with different colours for text, backgrounds, etc. Different text types (bold, italics, underlined) would also be useful when making posts and generally make Moot more visually appealing. I think to keep users interested you need to give them more freedom in posting and add more life and vibrancy to Moot. For example, I recall that people actually used instagram for longer when their phone had the colour feature on rather than when it was set to black and white, as the brain finds floods of colours more exciting and engaging. Here are a few statistics on coloured posts compared to non coloured: 24% more Likes 46.11% more comments 15% more Impressions 15.28% more Reach 3. 𝙽𝚎𝚠 𝚞𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚜 ☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:* New users seem to find it hard to settle in to Moot. To fix this, it would be nice if there was a system that taught new users the basics, encouraged them to post and get themselves out there, and (maybe) have a few new user quests to help get them some starter coins, which links to the next point. On that note, quests with coins would be a great Moot event in general! 4. 𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝙲𝚘𝚒𝚗 𝚂𝚢𝚜𝚝𝚎𝚖 ☆.。.:*・°☆.。.:* As I previously mentioned, new users I have talked to have struggled getting used to Moot and a lot don't like the coin system. Quite a few have told me they don't like that you have to pay to change your photo, which I'm not sure if it could be changed but I think the idea of quests with coins as a reward would be a great help, especially when they are new and still figuring out what they want to be like and present themselves as on Moot! :) Another thing is that (although you finally added it! I'm hoping because I hinted in a post a while back hehe) despite being able to gift coins, it is only on Q&A. I think it would be great if we could gift coins on posts or on our favourite Mootie's profile to support them! ________________________________________________ 🅣🅞 🅜🅞🅞🅣 🅤🅢🅔🅡🅢 𝚆𝚑𝚊𝚝 𝚌𝚊𝚗 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚍𝚘 𝚝𝚘 𝚑𝚎𝚕𝚙 𝙼𝚘𝚘𝚝 𝚋𝚎𝚌𝚘𝚖𝚎 𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚝𝚎𝚛? To help Moot become better as a user I'd recommend commenting on welcome posts and encouraging new users to post and make a post in the welcome section to properly introduce themselves to the community. Like me, you could also post your ideas in the questions and suggestions section! And finally try to be active and engaged. A community is nothing without it's people, and trust me that user that you comment to appreciates it, and will be more likely to check out your posts too! 🍓｡･ﾟ♡ﾟ･｡🍒｡･ﾟ♡ﾟ･｡🍓｡･ﾟ♡ﾟ･｡🍒 Thank you for reading all of this, of course I'm not a member of staff but I enjoy making these posts and I think it's important to speak out about your opinion about how Moot can be improved! Enjoy the rest of your day ʚ💛ɞ **Edit: Trading/gifting colours, badges and titles would also be an interesting concept!
