Ah, big brother is watching us, lol.
Good to hear, that we are noticed. The problem with missing information is that we replace it with our thoughts.
Designers are important to you as human resources as they develop the figureheads for your ingenious software. And appreciation of any kind, or rewards for work done, is an important part of keeping people happy. It is not necessarily about money.
We invest Hundreds of hours for free to create watch faces.
You have great signage that will not cost you a penny, bring you a lot of traffic, advertise your software and its capabilities, develop it further, give feedback, debug for you ...
All for free ...
A few rewards are important, everyone knows that, otherwise people lose their desire and leave.
I do not know if it's so good to expand the premium label too much, so you'll oust the experienced old hands. Maybe better to create a staggering.
By the way, a competition would be a great idea from time to time ...
