We like to think:

"Derek was trying to ____________________________."

But our projects are green-field and not toooo crazy.

add the user-card component
adjust loud-voice clamp
add padding to the page-header component

Thanks for the reply and I really enjoy this pattern you talked about.

My name is Derek - and I approve this git message. hahaha

I think we started doing this because / well, we just wanted to be consistent. So - we read somewhere that people use "imperative voice" or something...

But it wouldn't be the first time we decided to do something a certain way and then changed it... so, always looking for "THE BEST" way. ha! Always trying to improve... but we can lazy-load it.

I've created an account to give a like. This comment gave a good laugh; when I read it I initially though that the pattern is literally "Derek was trying to ____________________________."... if you know what I mean. ;)
