    Looks much more modern. Great redesign. :)

    The only little critique would be that the footer links might not be readable on larger devices.

    Did Stripe buy Baremetrics?

    The product video was wonderful! :)

    However, I have to jump in with the other people here - the website was a total let down.

    I am running Intel Core i7 6700K, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, and 16GB of RAM and the experience was anything but smooth on latest Google Chrome on Windows. I can play top of the line games on maximum settings, but a website did not work for me, which is a shame.

    If I think about design, then usability is the first thing that comes into mind. The video was flashy enough and I am sure it made most people go: "Whoa!"

    The website in this case should showcase the software in a simple yet beautiful way. Stripe comes to mind.

    Looking forward to the updates.

    If you take a look the earlier version and this, then this focuses on being very different from others. Unfortunately, it seems that at the moment, this would not work for a magazine.

    The first view has more content, than the previous version, but at the same time it feels that it has a lot less content. You can not focus on one main thing. Everything takes your focus and you are lost.

    There are other issues, like the Comment Form not following you, when you read the Comments.

    Let us see what data they get and then we know if this is better or not.

    Absolutely agree. I have clicked this Title several times for several days to see what is the question and what are the comments and until now I did not even know it was and AD.

    That is not okay...

    Hey, Luke!

    Thank you very much for the answer. It is great to know a bit of the "inside" of such web app, which has a lot of traffic in every direction, but still works very well. Good luck to all of you with Unsplash!

    This was a comment I posted on Product Hunt when you released Unsplash 5.0.

    "@mikaelcho Could you please create a blog post or tell more about the stack or behind the scenes of Unsplash? Having 1 billion views per month and 3 downloads per second is not a joke and it would be really great to learn what and how you have done for everything to work smoothly. Thank you!"

    Hopefully, a quick summary can be made. Thank you!

    I am most probably nowhere near your skill level, but as you are teaching experience design as well, then please allow to use a fullscreen button for the Vimeo player. At the moment at 560px it is pointless, you could have a 1:15 audio clip instead.

    Other than that, it is great that such content is produced. Will there be a full episodes list for each course to see if I am interested or not?

  • Posted to Where to buy a nice WordPress theme that is not bloated?, in reply to Mike McAlister , Jan 11, 2017

    Wanted to say this ^ and ThemeBeans. Both are nowhere near bloated and the code is really great.
