We want your feedback, admins please let us know what you want or would like to see!

Boosts appreciated!

Hm, what is the contrast in the login form?

My gut feeling: it's too law for #a11y (accessibility).

Using placeholder is an antipattern in #UX as there will be people who think it's already filled.
Put a label above and leave the field blank.

As this is likely your primary area, use some accent to draw attention to it?

@RyunoKi Thanks for the feedback! We'll work on improving the contrast and fix the form labels.

@pixelfed A preview from the public timeline would also be nice 📸

@pixelfed this looks great! Would be nice to add a custom background though (but that’s my opinion anyway)

@pixelfed would it be possible to add the possibility of directly displaying one user’s profile/feed instead of the landing page?

It would be very, very useful for personal instances with one user only.

Furthermore, in the landing page it should automatically appear the instance admin, so that it is easier to know who to get in touch with if one person intends to connect their instance to someone else’s.

@pixelfed still feels like there's too many buttons and it's not clear which one you should click

@pixelfed Looks attractive. IMO The Sign In controls should be more distinct. Right now that block of basic functionality looks like the two info blocks. In fact it’s less prominent than them due to consisting mostly of placeholder text. I’d also prefer having the Sign Up link grouped with Sign In as new users often just want to sign up and likely expect Sign Up to be quite prominent; very commonly grouped with Sign In, so users likely to look there.

@pixelfed The tagline is unclear to me. I get the 'feel at home part,' but what does 'you'll be able to change this' about?

If it's in relation to changing instances, this doesn't feel like the place to introduce that aspect.

@chartier @pixelfed it's using `short_description` so admins can change the tagline

@pixelfed I can't accept or reject follow requests, after my confirmation there is no acceptance or declines. What is happening?

@pixelfed Is Pixelfed being worked on currently? I'm receiving issues, when I try to access the site.

@pixelfed I would like to see " cyrcles" in my followers, in order only the followers of the cyrcle to seeing the 📸 that I want to show them
