Aggregated Feedback from YC Partner on Today's Show HN

For those of you who didn't know, I reviewed a bunch of Show HNs today. Many thanks to everyone who submitted Show HNs. I’m really sorry if I didn’t make it to your post. Some posts were beyond me to review…like that 99 Haskell project…well, I did like your quote even though I don’t know enough (any) Haskell to get the joke.

I’m always trying to get better at giving feedback. Please do let me know if there’s ways I / we (at HN) can do this better. I have no doubts I probably misunderstood things or am completely off the mark. Hopefully, it’s still useful to the creators. What I’d love is for others to do similar approaches so we can compare.

Thanks again!

Wow. This is next-level feedback.

I posted my MVP to show HN and got some sign-ups, but unfortunately limited feedback.


Very, very valuable to see your thoughts on other projects!

Amazing to see you put so much effort into reviews! Thanks!

Are you using any specific criteria for which ones you review? Was there an initial post somewhere about your efforts here?

This is very cool to see. Thanks.

I started by working my way from the top, but the order shifted throughout the day. I'd only skip one if I realized there was nothing for me to really say. I tried not to talk just to talk. However, as you can see, sometimes the only thoughts I had were tangents.

Dan posted that we were going to do this again earlier this week via a Tell HN. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9735139

Thank You for doing this.

I appreciate that you review the Show HNs.

It's refreshing to see someone from YC giving tangible feedback on businesses/startups/ideas -- in public.
