I’ve replaced the live chat on devpal.io with a HTML form.
This is because over the last 6 months, the increase of anon users either asking if it’s a bot or just saying “hi” have gone through the roof.
It’s also nice to remove a tracking and surveillance device from the site.
The chat service was great, but the metrics I could see were unnecessary. It also mislead users.
Bonus: the site is now a test zone for Stalfos V2, so it’s a bit rough around the edges 😬
Also, @Netlify forms feel like cheating. A glorious service!
