WTF is happening with the order here?
This would be like designing using "Paul Rand" as the expected name length every time.
Downvoting. All. The. Things.
You lost me at showing me an ad of your ship product at the end of such an eye-opening piece.
Really, really, great resource. Congrats!
Oh the always expected and welcomed "do it yourself" kind of response. I find it really ironic and meta that you seem to be whining in the most whining and bitching place of your life lol
But the problem is not the aesthetics of DN, it's the content.
It's nice that a few minutes is good enough for you. Means that you could be really astonished if the site made you stay for like a half an hour. That's how it used to be when there was content coming out of it.
What about a worthless comment in a worthless piece of content?
In my opinion, it's not a technology problem, as there's no need to create new features to fix it. The kind of content is what needs to change.
When Kelly and Allan were around taking care of that, I feel like they worried more about the quality of the content, not only by applying moderation but also by leading the community with efforts to have better content (AMAs, giveaways, etc). Feel to me like they really cared about the content in here. And so the community cared.
Don't get me wrong, most of the improvements that Arix suggested are great and probably could help the site, but the real change that I'd like to see in here is for you and those 30 people that you mentioned to contribute in here as if you really care about the quality and outcome of your baby. I know you adopted it, but it's still your baby.
Be nice. Or else.
