Robert B Questions/Thoughts
  • This email is sent out via the team @ mm  email right? and therefore its pretty clear how to email us I guess?
  • I feel like we have so many places to invite people to come check out... we really need to get straight WHICH we invite WHO to WHEN, and WHY... Maybe others have this sorted out in their mind... but I don't. (R)

  • scroll zoom on any map in firefox creates stutter image trail

  • I would try reverting these changes metamaps/metamaps#738 , I noticed a similar bug while testing this code to get it to work... but I only tested on chrome.
  • "Click to add description" text does not clear out after clicking to edit on topic cards - it remains in text field when you start typing.
  • Related to this, if you click to edit, then click elsewhere in the topic card, the text totally disappears and you can't get back to editing without closing and reopening the card.
  • The styling of the topic card description is quite different while not editing vs while editing... This causes the text to jump around from how it looks before you decide to edit it... This means if you clicked somewhere, because you wanted to start editing that particular text, it will likely jump somewhere else (i.e. no longer under your pointer/cursor) This is also pretty visual distracting to see the text moving all over...

  • This is technically zoom extents, and the centre of the map has another meaning... not necessarily at the center of the zoom extents.
