How Product Hunt really works(

    Felt the same way since shortly after they launched. Tried to submit multiple works without success. At first, I thought it was because I was a "new PH user" without much exposure, but realized a lot of friends haven't seen their projects even go up on the site. Feels very "clique-y" to me.

    Ryan's doing great work exposing great apps, but I feel like PH could be more than it currently is. Not very transparent or forgiving (ironically, since it was essentially built for those reasons), and seems to favour specific people/products.
