    For the most part I always use DN as a source for new/fresh links. What is the latest website out there, newest studio launch, interesting site design, logo / identity launch etc, the fresh content. I follow the DN twitter bot to catch things as they are posted. It's for news related to design. Why does that mean we have to discuss it endlessly? It doesn't.

    Maybe yesterday wasn't the best example but here's an all new typography.com from a major type house https://www.designernews.co/stories/102516-meet-the-allnew-typographycom some comments etc and definitely worthy of eyeballs to see what a major firm is doing.

    Then this brand new refreshed design site from designers at Dropbox (disclaimer, I shared it) https://www.designernews.co/stories/102523-resources-for-the-design-community-from-the-dropbox-design-team Interesting site design and all articles/resources/thoughtpieces for this very community. Worthy of a look? And even maybe an upvote? The design team at dropbox would probably think so.

    As long as the latest content keeps getting shared, conversation-generating or not, I will keep checking this. If some things develop more conversation, controversy, tip people off to projects members are working on (sharing work is fine too of a certain freshness etc), then that's all good too

    thx - so you don't know the source of the downvotes eh, as I was wondering why the misuse was more recent than not. Worth looking into no?

    downvotes thing is a system/design choice and hope it works but more interested in what the reason all of a sudden it seems to be being misused, wasn't a problem 6 weeks to a few months ago?

    Also, I don't understand the rebellion coming from inactive/non-contributing members. They want discussion, fair, but about what? Fresh links and new content just needs to keep getting posted and then well, we can post comments on the 'news', afterall, DN is supposed to be mainly about news. Not here to talk about photoshop techniques or whatever really. Want to talk about the latest controversial branding launch? The latest website release? etc etc

    I use DN as a place to post links and keep the flow of fresh content going -- if it's brand new/in the news of the design world, I expect it to be posted on DN within the hour. (usually keeping an eye on the twitter acct for the heads up) And then we go from there!

    this post should be stickied or something, I came on after weekend and didn't know there'd been some official response to stuff.

    what is this tho? You just joined. Don't contribute anything, jump to some conclusion about things working/not working, and then start a subreddit? Where's your involvement/submissions?
