Re: [ruby-85] Please review "Stay with a Local"

Hey Guys,

Nice work on the site. I really like the profile/map/photo idea. I think the app needs to lay out the directions more clearly and directly. Right now, the directions are listed under the profile��which suggests, at first glance, that the directions are part of the profile. I suggest moving the directions to the top of the page and making the text larger and more prominent. Second, there isn't a button that says "Request a room." There's a button that says "Sign in with twitter" which, to me, has to do with authenticating, not requesting a room. This interaction could be made more clear by moving "Sign in with twitter" to the top of the page and adding a button "Request a Room" underneath the profile once the person has signed in. Also, the interaction between the host list and profile view could be made more explicit by moving the host list above the profile view and highlighting the currently selected host in the host list.��

I've attached a mockup with my suggestions.

Hey guys,

I've deployed a build to production for your review. ��I'd like you guys to review it and send me any feedback (bugs, errors, updated descriptions for yourselves, preferred photo replacement, etc). ��I'm looking to announce the site late Tuesday morning. ��You can view the site at

Note that you'll need your twitter credentials to log in. ��When we really announce this thing, it will be restricted to the RailsConf speakers as listed here:�� ��For now, I've hard-coded each of your twitter accounts in as "speakers" so you can log in with your own twitter account and see how things change for speakers. ��Feel free to request rooms with yourself. ��This will trigger an email out to you allowing you to accept or decline the request. ��Go ahead and experiment with it. ��Really I just want a few more reps for the app before we ask people to start showing up.

David Robson, I know that you don't have a twitter account, so you won't be able to test out the rest of the app. ��But please let me know if you'd like to replace your description on the site.

I've cc'd the B'more on Rails list on this as well in they're curious to check it out.

Thanks guys.
