    This is a perfect example of how we could involve the DN community to come together to create something vs. endlessly shaming each other for ideas.

    "Buzz" from the community. I feel there was much more before Framer X came out.

    Everything they're making is slick and well polished; the latest Playground video looks beautiful, their Framer Sessions are in depth, but who around here is actually using Framer X?

    I'm genuinely curious because I love Framer and used it extensively before they went down the React path.

    I feel Framer has fallen off the radar. Do any of you use Framer X?

    Hi, nice work!

    My first question is: What is the purpose of this page? When a design is "good" it feels purposeful. Answer that question first and I think it will help you achieve what you want.

    The details in the toggle are a lot of fun. I'm going to concentrate my feedback on it because I think it can be great.

    Make the toggle the hero!

    You worked a lot on that animation! Looks fun! But, that toggle is TINY! Make it the hero of the page, so we can see all the work that went into it. Like, 2–3 times larger.

    Some of the detailed animations don't make "sense" because nature doesn't work that way!

    • A couple of the stars move left / right when toggled. Stars don't move like that! Consider fading them in instead. I noticed you are making the stars twinkle too; consider randomizing or staggering the twinkles.
    • Same with the cloud. It moves back & forth. Consider fading it in and instead have it move a very small distance in one direction.

    I don't think you need the rest of the page, really :)

    I absolutely love her work. She's able to layer complex ideas across lots of different looks in a way that works cohesively.

    I highly recommend checking out Isolate. Cleanest / fastest image browser I've come across.

    Dumb question: Framer X is an entirely new app, so existing licenses won't work?

    It does suck, but it's necessary.

    If you were running a popular web forum with server/hosting costs, how would you support it? Out of your pocket? Ads? Sponsored posts?

    I do believe more can be done to keep the quality up, but it's not easy. Lots of communities start off great and die a slow and painful death because it takes a lot of care and upkeep.
