We recently added HTML versions of many of our email notifications. These new
emails are much nicer to look at and give us flexibility to provide more
information and context without overwhelming the message by using CSS to
emphasize the most important information. Response from our members has been
very positive, and we’ll be continuing the rollout to the rest of our
notifications. However, the road to get from plain-text emails to HTML emails
was fraught with peril, so I want to share some of the lessons that we learned.

Throttling the creation of records is a component of our spam protection at
Dribbble. There’s no sane reason for a user to create more than 10 comments in
two minutes, or more than 100 comments in one day. We’ve had a method for
setting these types of limits for a while, but we’ve extracted it into an
open-source library, allowed.

Did you know there is a ton of development behind Dribbble? Probably so, but
you haven’t heard much about it before. We’ll be sharing what we’re working on
behind the scenes, interviewing developers using the API, showing how we use
libraries, extracting libraries from our code, and more.
