  • Posted to The Evolution of DN , in reply to Aldo Valdez , May 07, 2019

    I got tired of being banned from DN and having to create new accounts for expressing "controversial" opinions. This community is way too sensitive. I think it's because everyone is afraid to say something real, because people tie their profiles to their real names and twitter accounts. On reddit everything is anonymous and I predict we will see a lot more honest critiques and discussions. Would love to see some of those posts I got banned for, posted to reddit to see the difference in how people talk about them.

    Happily joined. Hopefully it is more inviting of honest discussions regarding design and less Medium articles telling you the top 5 things you do wrong.

    UPDATE: I’ve decided I’m going to stick with the team for the foreseeable future. I think I wrote my original post while I was still in a bit of a culture shock phase. I came into the company with this idea in my head on how it would play out, and when it didn’t I felt uncomfortable. But I over the last 24hrs I’ve been reflecting and I think I am going to stick with the team and learn the process. It’s slower than I’m use to but I’m looking at it as a different type of design challenge. Thanks everyone for your input, it definitely helped while while reflecting.

    Gee who would have thought... I am either the smartest designer in the world or everyone else is overthinking everything about design now a days. Yeah no shit when you show the CTA as the user scrolls they would be more likely to click on the button and hopefully make a purchase. This is probably do to them having a better understanding of what they are purchasing through the information they gathered on the page.

    I get so tired of these design blog posts stating obvious shit. Maybe I should start doing it so I can become design internet famous, and finally people will look at me and go, "Wow he really knows what he is talking about doesn't he."
