Be nice. Or else.
Great questions, but first off I can't help but notice the great pain and suffering you are enduring from my article. You said that you're concerned about the well-being of UX designers in the world. Well, I'm concerned about your well-being. I'd like to know what specific ailments my dangerous article has caused you. If you are feeling faint or dizzy please call 911.
There's a rise of virtue signalers who masquerade as phony moral crusaders today, so I want to make sure you are not one of them. Many of these types like to compete and bash other people's accomplishments to boost their self-esteem. This is not cool and it hurts the community. We are all designers who should be supporting each others work, not competing with each other to make ourselves feel more superior than another.
Since my articles aren't very good, perhaps you could show everyone the far better articles you've written so we can see how a true guru master writes like. Please post it soon, as I'm eager to learn from you.
Even though you're couching everything in a nice way, you sound like a negative nancy complainer. Complainers say what they don't want, but never say what they want instead. This is exactly what you did. If you're not here for design tools, what are you here for?
He's not reinventing the wheel. He's making a wheel that's better than its predecessors, which I think is a great cause.
They totally killed their brand identity for the sake of a fashionable trend. Trends are for the moment, brand identity is timeless. Very sad!
First day here at DN?
Why are you being snarky to someone who disagrees with you while preaching against that?
The ones who accuse others of hypocrisy are the biggest hypocrites of all. Be wary of phony moralists.
You're right. I need to resist social feedback and use condescending sarcasm like you to make friends.
Obviously UX is not your forte then :)
Figured that much, but it's hard to read and nobody likes it. Are you designing for the user or yourself?
Looks much better than the old design but I got a couple gripes.
I don't get why the day titles cut off at the edge of the screen (at 100% zoom). Makes the site look cheap and unprofessional. I don't want to struggle to read text.
I like the font size of the headlines but they are too bold which makes it a little harder to scan. This is because the boldness makes each letter more compact and closer together giving little whitespace to process the shape of the letters.
Oh my dear god their logo is horrendous! It looks like they hired a kindergartener to open up paint and place two shapes together.
If it was the logo by itself without the word patreon, you wouldn't know that it's supposed to be a 'P'.
