Today I was searching for Bric and Blocs to purchase that I might want to use. This isn’t the first time.
What did I find…
I found ads in the Blocs store with broken links, no previews of what a bloc os bric does (need to show me) and links that don’t work.
I also see messages in threads that go unanswered and have been sitting there for years.
I send msgs to developers and get no responses. With some, it is unclear if you should use the “contact me” link or not.
Obviously, this isn’t the case for ALL developers, but many in the store don’t seem to keep up with their store fronts.
So, today a message to developers:
I WANT to give you my money! I want to purchase Bric and Blocs, but you are not making it easy.
I WANT to see more developers in there, I WANT to buy your stuff!
I would simply ask that developers go look at their storefronts, click on the links…see what we see.
I do see updates with some of the Bric and Blocs…but if you didn’t update your Bric or Bloc, does it work with the latest Blocs application? Bootstrap 5 or whatever?
I look at some of these and wonder if I want to give you my money? Will you be around for the next Blocs update? Are you actively refreshing your offerings? Frankly, it doesn’t look like it in some of the store fronts.
Finally, we WANT to support you…can you make it a bit easier?
My rant is done…I DO APPRECIATE the work all developers put into their offerings. Help me spend my money.
