Funny, because it's true
Open registration allowed bots, UX experts, and people with crappy taste in design to join.
The quality of conversations went down because of all the Dribbble-like replies.
Spammers joined with their shitty UI/UX/design-lifestyle posts.
I'm a mod. I requested permission to get harder on content quality. I was told that the community would self-moderate and "vote up" quality content. It was not so.
I'd love to ban half of the DN community because they continuously post shitty content that don't come near the quality standards of the older DN generation, but it's either too late now, or I won't be allowed to put the hammer down as hard as I want to.
In other words, c'est fini! DN is dead.
This is really painful to write because I can still remember the hours I spent each week finding cool links to share here. What a f***ing waste of my youth!!!
Wow... never heard one this big being available for sale until now.

The sad problem is that the design community keeps producing that shit to begin with...
I have thousands of design-related news sources in my RSS feed, and that's what I see in new articles daily. "Designers" seem to be intent on creating that spam in the first place.
Worked on FF58
Ok. I'll admit.
My first thought was that a "new account" posted some bulls**t fintech spam... but the video is quite interesting.
Nice work, Joe!
He didn't say anything that others didn't say before. Current design workflows have been called out for overcomplexity in the past. It helps more that his voice is out there. Maybe now we can get rid of all that shit JS build chain... but I doubt it.
