  • Posted to Dribbble Boost - Pay for profile views , in reply to Ryan Hicks , Jun 13, 2018

    I totally agree that it's a result of a bigger problem.

    I actually like this idea. Look at the current state of Dribbble. Those who have few followers often find it difficult to gain exposure. They are overshadowed by the big players who have tens of thousands of followers. And, while this may not be the ideal solution to that problem, it at least has potential (maybe?)

  • Posted to Design systems will never replace design jobs (here’s why), in reply to Rhys Merritt , Jun 13, 2018

    I've always saw design systems as a way to create consistency and limit the amount of duplicate work that needs to be done. The part of my life it makes easier is the part where I think "OK, this screen is going to need form fields and buttons." A design system doesn't magically throw it together in the exact order it should be laid out.

    I don't exactly understand the notion that design systems will completely automate design.

    I was really skeptical going into the video, but I really enjoyed it and it was very insightful. Thanks for taking the time to create it!

  • Posted to Native Sketch Dark Mode Confirmed, in reply to George Brown , Jun 06, 2018

    Would have been nice to see a native dark mode long ago, but I'm pretty satisfied with the Midnight plugin.

    I actually have zero performance issues with Sketch. I used to all the time (a year or so ago). But as of the past year, it's been pretty smooth sailing. Could possibly be caused by any plugins you're running. It has room for improvement but it's far from being a bottom of the barrel product.

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but overall I like the redesign.

    I use Bear, but the always-displayed markdown is a real turnoff. It's distracting. I don't understand why there's no toggle for that.

    While not necessarily practical, they're definitely neat!

    Just read through the community guidelines. People slip up sometimes, but we generally know when we're doing something we shouldn't do. I drive over the speed limit in my car, but you aren't going to see me whining about it when I'm punished for it, because I can blame it on no one but myself.
