And Humble Bundle listened. So while change is still coming, they just announced that they're going to step back from their original plans.
“We’ve heard everyone loud and clear and apologize for the way these changes were rolled out. We are now taking a moment to pause, collect constructive feedback and be more transparent about the path forward.
Today, we’ll be turning sliders back on for all customers on our bundle pages while we take more time to review feedback and consider sliders and the importance of customization for purchases on bundle pages in the long term.”
They assured people that while this postponed their original goals, they are still going to make changes… but they’ll make an effort to be more transparent in their future attempts.
We’re committed to sharing our plans and getting feedback from this incredible community beforehand to ensure any changes we make live up to our mission and values. If there’s one thing that’s clearer than ever, it’s how important the feedback is from the Humble community ahead of making big changes.
While nobody is super happy with the idea of being able to give less money to charity — which was really the biggest selling point of the Humble Bundle service — I can’t really blame them for this. At least they’ll be more open about what’s going to happen from here on out.
