The most frequently requested feature, by far, is a transcript of a room: a chronological, decently formatted review of what happened. I am planning on doing this, and have been for a while. But, I’ve been busy lately, and, if you didn’t know, Today’s Meet is just me.
Another great suggestion I had was shorter, classroom-based room lengths. I’ll probably be adding 8- and 2-hour expiration timers at the same time I add the transcripts, if not before.
So, for you readers, I have two questions:
What formats should be available for the transcripts? I want something someone can save to their hard drive as a single file, so I’m thinking along the lines of plain text and plain HTML (with abusive semantics, but not requiring stylesheets or images). Possibly RTF if it’s not too much trouble?
What other features would you like to see?
There are two features I do not plan to implement, or at least not without some other drastic changes. Deleting or clearing a room and extending a room’s “lease”. Deleting or clearing a room would require some type of user authentication—I don’t want just anyone to be able to do it—and extending a lease sort of defeats the purpose. I may add “infinite” rooms as some sort of premium or special deal in the future, but for now, it’s not happening. I think the ephemeral rooms are what sets Today’s Meet apart from the competition.
Given a little time, I’ll get to work on Today’s Meet. For now, let me know how it’s working, and what else you’d like to see!
