Hammer Time! Banning changes! Updates! New Ideas!

What a week!

Thank you for making it happen. We built Rendezwho to ignite curiosity, and desire to travel, with the journey to find your friend being as much the inspiration as the destination. You are the very first to embrace this idea, and as such, our favorite people. We appreciate you coming along on the ride, we promise to only get better with time, like cheese.

You told us, we listened.

We hear you loud and clear, your Rendezwho isn’t responsive, or hasn’t returned to the app, and it’s frankly ruining this for you. We want to make it easier for you to find someone that is engaged and willing to let this new connection grow.

Don’t get banned!

We are now changing our banning policy to a two-tier banning system:

  1. When you sign up, you have three days to return to the app, if you don’t, you will be banned.
  2. Once you are in, answer the question of the day at least once a day for 10 days (previously 15). Being inactive for 10 days in a row, will result in being banned. We contact you before then, to get it together :)

Now, we aren’t crazy, we know things come up. Perhaps you’re on a phone-free trek, or for whatever reason chose to leave your phone and the internet at home for 10 days; in those cases, shoot us an email. We can make it work, and communicate with your match.

We’re working on it.

We have a couple bugs with GIFs and Spotify that we are working on resolving. Yes, we are on a strict diet of code and coffee! Hang in there with us.

Looking ahead.

We absolutely love all of your ideas, keep sending them in! In fact, music sharing was created as a suggestion from one of our early beta users. Here’s just a couple we are thinking about for this year:

  • Games: We have a few options we think would be fun to play with your match.
  • Levels: When you engage often with your friend, you open up a new level of communication.

Final thought.

One thing we really want to hammer in, is that there’s a very real person behind your app. So in a way, the app only works if you both are engaged, you are what powers it to move forward.

Thanks again, we are so very excited. As always, feel free to share your thoughts, gripes, and gifs !
