Feedback is crucial

AgentSlug.com is getting more and more feedback from our first users.  Most of it is positive and that makes me happy, but what’s more important to me is that some of it is really constructive and learning.

As a developer who has decided to make a tool based on “scratching own itch” problem, I can’t be sure what are others’ needs and why they are actually using the app.  Feedback is crucial. Many thanks to everyone for their effort.

Next step

From the first deployment date we are tuning the uptime monitoring module to make it better and more optimized. However, we are about to go further than that.

AgentSlug.com is an uptime monitoring tool for now, but we want to build on it a complementary automatic webmaster tool focused on website monitoring in many dimensions:

  • full content monitoring
    • dead links detection
    • html validation
    • spell checker
    • WAI problems detection within the content (like no [alt] attributes on images)
  • anomalies detection – if your homepage suddenly grows or shrinks it might be hacked (defaced)
  • real users’ load time
  • resources load time testing

That’s just a shortlist of the ideas that we are fully agreed are important for every webmaster or website owner.
