Dang, some of those examples are pretty slick.
The level of kindness in these messages is subjective, which is why I cannot say definitively that "that was mean" or "that was rude", but I get the sense that if the designer, developer, writer, or marketer were sitting in front of us and we were giving them feedback on their work we would word it in a more considerate and balanced way.
My point is that the people actually read the feedback we leave here. Not just InVision employees but there are employees of other orgs that come to DN and read the feedback we leave on their work. I believe we should be more thoughtful about the feedback we leave here.
Y'all, don't forget that there are actual people behind the usernames of those who designed and built this site. There are considerate ways to construct feedback that are both candid and kind.
Vlad, we apprecite your concern for flooding the DN feed, however you are still treading too close to the line of excessive self promotion with your posts. You are welcome in this community, but we do not accept self-promotion at this level.
You've worked at a lot of really well-known companies over the years and have contributed to products used by millions (ball-park guess). What have you learned during your time at those orgs that influences and guides how you choose where to work next?
What would you say to other designers dreaming of working at well-known places like those?
The last time I did a major upgrade i couldn't compile sass because of funky change int he way something was handled on the command line. Don't remember all the details but I'm traumatized by that change.
No I'm afraid it will mess with my, ever-so-sensitive, local dev environments.
Forrst... wow. I haven't heard that name in years
