Np. I thought it was cool when Trevor told me about it and I was kind of surprised that nobody had posted it here yet. First tool of it's kind for Figma that I'm aware of. Kudos!
On the ball like white on rice.
He's not arguing that it could replace your work computer, but that it replaced his home computer (used for browsing, hobbies, and the like) and maybe it could replace yours too.
I for one can vouch for the viability of an ipad to replace ones home computer (obviously depeneding on what you use your home pc for). I replaced mine with an iPad mini and it was fantastic.
There are sevearl designers on their team and several different designers are responsible for different product pages on their site. Also sometimes they collaborate on pages together. Here are a few of the designers who are responsible for some of the different pages (all gathered through dribble and blog posts):
This is a really great idea on their part, and makes me wonder if this is something they do ever year or if this is the first. Found myself getting sucked into the storylines of teams I didn't care much about before.
8 days and counting!!
Yes, I've gotten in touch with staff about it and their aware of the issue. Probalby working on it soon.
You hit the nail on the head. I was one of the first hundred users and it was really fanstastic in the glory days, but at some point the owners (which have changed since it's inception) interest moved to other things and DN got less and less attention. It's been coasting downhill ever since then. There are still moderators who help filter the content out (of which I am one) but there's just so much cruft and spam that it's become difficult to do and justify spending the time one.
Catalin Cimpanu lead the charge on providing great content and moderating content for years. Even more recently when the community began to take a turn for the worse, he was a trooper in modding pretty heavily. Dude doesn't get enough credit for the work and time he invested in this community.
You basically summed it up though. I honestly don't think the owners care enough at this point to do anything about the seriously downgraded quality in content. No flack, they're probably justified in doing so, it's just a sad reality.
woosh hahah. completely over my head. Thanks for the heads up.
Portal was made by Valve.
