[Steemhunt] Intuitive Chrome extension designsteemCreated with Sketch.

in utopian-io •  4 days ago



I've opened the issue and the PO acknowledged the suggestions: https://github.com/Steemhunt/browser-extension/issues/2


  • Steemhunt Chrome Extension

Proposal Description

Yesterday, Steemhunt (@steemhunt) has just begun their IEO (Initial Exchange Offering) very successfully: Steemhunt's First IEO 100% Achieved within 3 mins!! (As far as I know, Steemhunt's IEO is probably the first (non-negligible scale) IEO based on the Steem blockchain. Correct me if I'm wrong.)

@steemhunt is also a Steem witness and @misterdelegation also delegated a large amount of SP to support them. So Steemhunt is an important dapp in the Steem community.

One easy way to access and get some free HUNT tokens (probably only when there's a promotion) is using Steemhunt Chrome Extension.

While its features are quite simple (showing daily best Hunts with every new tab, and set Steemit ID to get rewards), the extension is not intuitive designed.

After the installing the extension, all I can see when I click the extension was the following:

Probably most users expect that clicking "Steemhunt" will direct them to the page that the extension should actually show (as explained in https://steemit.com/steemhunt/@steemhunt/introducing-steemhunt-chrome-extension-and-new-airdrop-or-sponsor-report-22). But it's just redirected to the google web store page.

While this itself might be the default behavior of chrome-extension's first menu (unless customized), the chrome web store page also doesn't contain any meaningful information about how to actually use this extension.

It took me quite a time to find out how to use the extension after googling and found this: https://steemit.com/steemhunt/@steemhunt/introducing-steemhunt-chrome-extension-and-new-airdrop-or-sponsor-report-22

So, it seems that I have to open a new tab manually, which is quite counter-intuitive than click some menu on the extension itself. At least both should work.

Overall, the extension should work much more intuitively. How many people can figure out how to use this extension without googling the instruction? Probably not many.

  • There should be a menu that redirects to the page that it intends to show.
  • It is better if just clicking the extension icon does this job.
  • Showing daily hunt page with every new tab might be annoying. Except for hyper active Hunt users, unless there's a huge incentive, this extension may be disabled or uninstalled soon by users. The extension should allow users to disable that feature, or there should be an option such that new tab function only works for the first new tab.

Mockups / Examples

There should be a menu on the extension itself that redirects the page to the page it intends to show. Of course, it's much better if it's the first menu (instead of redirecting to the google store page) or just the extension icon itself should work what it should.

For instance, this is what a user gets after clicking steem keychain extension icon.

  • Steemit id setting should be done this way.
  • If it's unset yet, popup this kind of window to enter the id, and if it's already set, just show the daily hunt page.


  • Much more intuitive UI
    Chrome extension is for convenience, so users should be able to use at least the main feature without referring any further documentation.
  • Boost Steemhunt dApp usage
    From Steemhunt's point of view, this extension can boost user activity on Steemhunt. For this, the extension shouldn't bother users too much. If daily hunt page with every new tab can be disabled in the setting (while clicking the extension still shows the hunt page), the extension can be sustained longer :) so eventually it can benefit both users and the Steemhunt.

Disclaimer: I haven't participate in the IEO and I only have negligible amount of Hunt tokens: 3.14 Hunt. What a coincidence that today is 3.14!

Hello @blockchainstudio!
Nice to see you contributing again.
Steemhunt chrome extension indeed a very basic extension and there are plenty of functions that can be improved/implemented.
Although your suggested features are common but without a doubt they will improve the extension and maybe increase the usage as well.
Good to see that PO has acknowledged your suggestion.

    한글: 스팀헌트 성공적인 IEO를 기념할겸 제안하나 만들어보았습니다. (참고로 저는 IEO참여하지 않았고 않을 계획입니다. 제가 모든 투자를 안해서 그럴뿐 스팀헌트가 유망하지 않다고 생각해서가 아님을 알아주세요. 저는 헌트토큰도 3.14개. 오늘 3월 14일인데 이런 우연의 일치가ㅎㅎ)

    그동안 유토피안 제안 이것저것 하면서 정작 한국분들이 하시는 프로젝트는 도와드린게 없는 것 같아서 한번 작성해보았습니다. (그런데 사실 오픈소스 프로젝트인게 스팀헌트밖에 없지 않나요?) 사실 제가 스팀헌트를 사용하지는 않아서 막 좋은 제안이 나오긴 힘들겠지만 그래서 더더욱 어찌보면 처음사용자의 입장에서 바라볼 수 있을 것 같습니다. 스팀헌트 자체보다는 크롬 익스텐션을 설치하고 써봤는데 훨씬 더 직관적인 디자인이 필요할 것 같습니다. 그리고 매번 새탭에 헌트데일리 보여주는 것은 처음엔 좋을지 몰라도 결국 앱이 차단되거나 제거되는 빌미를 제공할 수 밖에 없습니다ㅎㅎ

    스팀헌트는 스팀 예비증인이기도 하고 순위도 30위중반이라 적어도 현재로써는 한국증인중 새로 20위안이 나올 가능성이 가장 높은 상태가 아닐까 싶습니다. 토큰 상장도 하는 마당에 제가 어떤 bias가 담긴 이야기를 하기는 부담이 되지만 프로젝트 잘 되셔서 메인 증인도 되시면 좋겠습니다. 감사합니다.


    안녕하세요 좋은 제안 감사합니다. 크롬 익스텐션은 활발히 활동하는 헌터들이 쉽게 탑 제품들을 훑어볼 수 있도록 아주 기본적인 기능만 넣어 출시한 버전입니다. 물론 펀딩 후 팀 자원이 충족되면 개선된 버전으로 개발이 계획되어 있습니다. 제안주신 내용도 검토해서 진행토록 하겠습니다. 감사합니다.


    답변 감사합니다^^ 깃허브는 어느분이신가요?ㅎㅎ 스팀헌트 자체도 이전에 둘러보긴했는데 아무래도 관심이 없으면 잘 안보게 되는 것 같더라고요. 그래서 그냥 간단하게 익스텐션 깔아봤습니다. 오픈소스로 많은 부분 하고 계신게 인상적이네요. 사실 이전에 스팀헌트웹에 보팅가치관련해서 약간 수정할 부분 발견하긴했었는데 일부유저에만 적용되는 사소한 거라 그냥 두었습니다. 언제 시간되면 그래도 고쳐보도록 할께요ㅎㅎ 그럼 앞으로도 프로젝트 잘 되길 바랍니다!

    보팅도 감사합니다. 마침 디클릭도 다녀가서 유토피안이 벌써 다녀간 느낌이네요ㅎㅎ 그런데 안타깝게 디클릭은 계속 좀 하향세가 뚜렸한 것 같네요. 보팅이 줄어들자 임대가 줄어들고 다시 보팅이 줄어들고 악순환에 빠진듯ㅠㅠ

    Nice tool - I will def add to my browser!
