    I was stating that the idea that the industry was fucked was an extreme, not that these actions are in any way ok.

    I am not ok with this and think it's terrible, reprehensible, and should be dealt with accordingly. I don't think you can take the actions of a few and use it as a blanket generalization to a in industry.

    Please the intentional lack of gender in the last sentence. 'we're' is not inherently male and just because I am male and saying it doesn't mean I was referring to myself.

    It really depends on what you're trying to do, but this should provide some reading material for a little while :)

    I feel like this is just another great resource to scavenge parts from. Other than that it's about as interesting as Apple Music...

    • drop shadows - less is more!
    • typography - a little more space, and please find another font
    • hierarchy - space and separate
    • icons - terribly consistency, fill strokes, all over the place
    • buttons - SIDE PADDING
    • drop downs - attention to off-canvas

    To list a few things

    This industry is not fucked. Sounds like there are a few(or more than a few) twisted cave dwelling developers who are afraid that they will be put into mediocrity by a woman's skills and work ethic. But to generalize that to an entire industry? that's a little extreme.

    Please keep doing what you're doing and keep your head up, we're not all twisted psycho misogynist wierdos.

    I don't disagree with this, but I also don't feel like it is necessary. I think Andrew and his team are doing a fantastic job, their openness and response to critiques is incredible.

    I believe that too many cooks in the kitchen is in many ways the bane of design, but at the same time it is quite obvious that there are a lot of invested individuals who use this site as a resource and tool and would be more than happy to take the time to improve it.

    Keep up the good work Andrew!

    I don't know if this is a direct result of the redesign or just the amount of traffic on this particular post - I believe the overall page load speed has taken a fairly dramatic hit.

    I never did any speed checks before, but I would be curious to see if there is actually a difference? I feel as though Stories take longer to load and occasionally don't at all, Here is a screenshot of the error I have received a couple of times.

    Keep up the great work!
