my Canadian friend says growing up, she thought you either bought a brand or a "no name" brand and just looked for the yellow lol. Only in adulthood did she realize it was yet another brand
lol the favicon should just be a yellow square I guess?
some sites have a "soft ban" that I think is really useful— if someone engages in trolling or becomes heated, they get muted for a week or something. If that activity continues, then they get perma-banned
While speed limits are clearly stated, there is "We realize there is a bit of gray area regarding both appropriate and beneficial content" — it'd be nice to know if when we've stepped over the line, since that gray area isn't completely spelled out
nope, I'm in the Atlanta area! I guess Creative Loafing is all over? It seems weird you can't access any of their other city guides...
I love how the search bar looks (and how it completely lacks affordance).
I also love how hovering over each article replaces the title with the lede image, but because you have to scroll to read it, whatever title you wanted to read gets immediately replaced by the lede.
Also, the responsive code on the articles is broken. Brutal yo!
"The magic of misdirection is Instagram’s secret for multistep interactions—like uploading a photo. When the user has finished editing an image, the upload begins immediately. By drawing attention to the captioning and geotagging, the photo has time to upload"
Isn't there an element of consent when someone clicks "upload" or "Send"? That you're monitoring for information before they're giving consent feels rather unethical. If users decide "oh wait, maybe I shouldn't upload this after all" on the last screen, this image is now already residing on Facebook's servers (reminder: FB owns Insta) forever.
I kind of do. But it's because I'm a single design/dev who needs a ton of reusability. Eventually I ended up rolling my bits and pieces into a "framework" of sorts and threw it on npm, mostly for myself, since I needed a simple way to distribute the latest version to all my projects.
I don't call it atoms or molecules or organisms though, I dubbed my system 'coeur' and call the pieces heart/head/neck/torso but it follows a similar principle.
It's clearly not meant or designed for widespread use (not well-documented, buggy and probably missing features), but you can use it if you want: https://janzheng.com/stylecoeur/styleguide.html
haha I forgot about Axure. They're so expensive though, but that's where I got my start as a UX person. Is their product still relevant for startups and freelancers w/ a tight budget?
yea and furthermore, a prototype page should have a way to toggle states for the page, so each component can respond (e.g. Items added to shopping cart; shopping cart is updated, and the item on the shopping page indicates you have one in your cart)
Would be great if you could toggle between states on the page rather than having to manually comp out each permutation
I'm working on that for my own prototyping tool, but don't see Sketch/Framer/Figma do that any time soon
