It's the SEO spammiest, say-nothingest, recycled tripe ever and it annoys me that every few clicks on DN headlines I find myself taken there.
Can you guys do me a favour and email me when you see stuff that rubs you the wrong way? firstname.lastname@example.org
Can we get a "Report Post" link on all articles/posts?
Did some comments get deleted from this? There were many more and now I am not seeing them.
not as far as i can tell
That's weird cause there was a whole convo about someone saying that "Why would anyone working at fb think they are changing the world" and then a Facebook designer offered to take them on a tour and the Joel responded that that person's tours are great....now all that is missing.
Either you or the OP you mentioned has/had the wrong post.
Agreed. The images in their articles always look awfully pixellated on my screen too.
Couldn't agree more. Just called Webflow out for this not 2 weeks ago. Their response was that they post every blog post to Designer News so the community can discuss. While that's fair, I have to say why have a comments section on your blog to begin with then?
Creative Bloq is the worst
Happy I'm not the only one that was annoyed by this.
Totally agree. I hate that crap.
Can we add half of the stuff on Fast.Co?
You know, it wouldn't surprise me, frankly, if some publishers were submitting their own articles and — now that there's open enrollment — creating sockpuppets or having their employees login to upvote articles.
I saw Creative Market doing some of that here on DN. I don't mind people and publishers self-promoting and such, but at least in Creative Market's case, the content was Buzzfeed level (low) quality clickbait.
The DN guidelines already addresses that:
- Using voting rings either among friends, within a company, or using dummy accounts.
- Using inflammatory, misleading, or click-bait headlines on otherwise acceptable content.
- List-format articles ("10 ways to...", "30 examples of...", etc.) that are largely advertorial in nature.
You had me at "recycled tripe".
DN redesigned but didn't add Edit for posts, it seems.
Medium too, please.
Really? I typically love Medium content..
Well a custom icon might be good though
I find 4/5 Medium articles to be LOOK AT THIS THING YOU'VE KNOWN FOR 20 YEARS THAT I JUST LEARNED.
i ❤ this
Being posted on Medium doesn't indicate what kind of content it is. Articles on there have become in good part self-promotion, but the platform is not the criteria on which we can base such an assumption.
ah, i'm mostly kidding. I just use this plugin instead https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hide-medium/fjfdkhihpiabibpdkddchbkmmbabhpaj
