Thanks for the kind words! Fully agreed, there is a lot of room to build — based on our roadmap, we’re at most 10% feature complete at the moment. Regarding monetization, the next thing on our list is premium/patronage features for groups and creating incentives around that. Polls are also on the list, and indeed one way to give polls more weight and validity is being able to ask a fixed donation per vote.
Besides our to-do list on reddit, we’ve got hundreds of suggestions from the community that we may implement at some point in the future. Once more fundamentals are in place (for both ecosystem and platform), we can start focusing on the immense volume of small things that will make the platform stand out tall vs the competition. Cheers.
