@becky If only more developers thought the way you do about this.

@becky Great approach 👏 It’s clear you’ve put a lot of thought into avoiding the pitfalls of digital memory resurfacing.

I would argue, though, that it’s possible that “Last month” could still be “dangerous”; perhaps there’s a photo with a dear friend at the beginning of last month, then some other photos, then the friend has passed away, and then this month starts…. I’m leaning towards the position that something like what Eddie Hinkle mentioned should be a basic component of any such feature in any software (could prompt at opt-in, and then other dates could be added in settings in the future).
