I went to make a new Board after a good while of only editing existing ones, and no longer had the option to make a personal board. I think a month or two ago my solution was to just use one I already had made that didn't have much on it even. I couldn't do that this time, as I had no more spare boards.
This led me to find this page, in which what development is going toward kind of makes sense, but why not just call them categories, and allow assigning a team to a said category? And then when I just don't care to put it in a category, not force me to, and instead just keep it in an empty category until maybe I decide I want to drag it into one?
I like using Trello as the less cluttered solution. If I wanted the timelines and tables and such I would not be using Trello in the first place and instead use Azure Devops, as it's better to say you know how to use in something like a Microsoft interview anyway.
I would think that maybe Trello would try to integrate some of the most used "Power-Ups" (in which that name has always pissed me off) into Trello by default, so it didn't have to count as my 1 power up and make the experience better by default.
I don't even know what power-ups are really capable of since I find it necessary to use the Google Drive one as my 1 power up every time. I don't want to use the 14 day free trial, as I know the power-ups I might try out will just be revoked in two weeks, making whatever I did with them useless after that point. The majority of people that use Trello, at least that I know, use it because it is free and simple. This has also made it the best solution for GameJams.
Even if I wanted to buy Trello premium, I feel that it would probably be missing the features I'd want added most.
One of the features I'd want added most is the ability to embed more things in the comments like I can YouTube links. Showing in a way it would if I were to post a link like:
I don't like that I can't put images in my comments of a card.
If I could use 1 Trello board for as long as I wanted that showed me what premium was like, letting me use whatever power-ups I wanted, I would try that out, that seems cool. Even if it might seem somewhat exploitable if people were to keep making new accounts, that makes it into something that people would want to get the premium of when they have the money to do so with, and people can exploit 14 day free trials anyway.
I've been satisfied enough to keep using Trello, as I do like the way I can organize tasks, and as it's easy enough to teach someone to use, I just haven't really seen any positive changes personally since when I first started using it, and I hope this post in some way can make a difference as I would like to see Trello improve in ways that can help me and the people I know.
