    Wonder if anyone has a screenshot? I quite like what they have now but I've never seen their site prior to today.

    This is the most sensible comment in this entire thread.

    I'm struggling to understand why those words are unhelpful. I think most designers learn pretty early on that people's impressions of a design might end up mattering more than the intent or the content. Hell, gut reactions to how a design "feels" can often be the most useful feedback, even when its hard to voice the reason behind that feeling.

    If I design a new innovative package for some salad dressing, but other people's gut reactions place it closer to being a laundry detergent, I'd hope to hear words like "soap" or "cleaning" in the critique.

    I think that's kind of what happened here: Some felt that the site ranged too close to a fashion or modeling site, and that made it less successful as a design portfolio. Isn't that worthwhile feedback to discuss, whether one agrees with it or not?

    Help me understand where I'm wrong or let me know your thoughts :)

    Feeling out of the loop. What happened in the other day's thread? Is it still up?

    You can add your rent or electricity bill. I did so!

    This pun does not have enough upvotes.

    I really like it. Apps have more balance and hierarchy. Makes finding the right app in the app switcher a hellofalot easier if you have a few similar looking apps.

    Yeah, I bought an expansion to Cards Against Humanity called "Crabs Adjust Humidity" with bitcoin once. It was kinda inconvenient.
