The ability to click on a color earned in a user profile that then shows a list of users who have said color. Great way to find out who was at a meetup or who was part of something that earned them a color. This essentially splits DN into groups which might not be a good thing. Who knows.

c k., User Experience @ Black Island

There is a huge influx of users who keep sending me to things like "100 hotel icons" which should read "Please buy my set of 100 hotel icons I created, here's the link"

Can we PLEASE include a checkbox that asks if you are promoting yourself, or linking to something for sale? Then we could add a css class around each of these post and allow users to see when we are being fed junk. We're getting a lot of new users self promoting themselves, and not with interesting articles or news. They are promoting something for sale. This really irks me, and already I've started to cut down on my reading of DN, because often when I click it a link it's a "Top 10 type of post"

I really love the site, lets keep it news, and fix or clear up that people should not be submitting some icons they have for sale or their latest weather app they want us to buy…

I'd prefer a ratio over any other metric. Amassing points tends to become an achievement to some. Directly relate the number to the quality of their links and people stay focused on good content.

0 points over 1 year ago Reply
Taurean B., Partner of Shogun Theory

I completely agree. I think a ratio is a good compromise for judging someones reputation at a glance without necessarily creating a 'high score' mentality. Maybe even having a ratio correlate with a three or five tier system? Red yellow green or something similar?

So, I just opened up the designer news page and was like WOOAAHHHH. Everything has changed. I am totally all for iteration, but I think this one may have taken a step back. Here is some feedback.

  1. It's actually harder to read now, with the font change. Gill sans is a tough one at small sizes, I think.

  2. With the images now included in the container (instead of laying outside of it), my eye now has to jump from right to left as I scan down the page. It was really nice to have the ability to just follow the icons on the left, then scan right when I wanted to see what the content actually was.

  3. Also, this may have been there before, but there is a lot of text under each headline. I think the headlines might benefit from a bit more white space, or the removal of some of the secondary text.

Just thoughts from another designer. This is an awesome service, and I appreciate all the awesome work that has gone into it.

Thanks!

I'm not sure on which site I saw this, but on a site that I posted to once, they had a super neat auto-generated Title field, which, if no title is initially provided, took the tag from the URL provided is entered into the Title field. It was super handy, and I'd like to see it here on DN.

Early adopter avatar color: Earned by upvoting a certain amount of threads that become popular (front page or maybe top 10) when they have less than a certain number of votes (5? 10?) within a given time frame (lets say 7 days).

Did you drop the white background for the DN content div? Please put it back!

I appreciate that “good design is as little design as possible” but that subtle framing of the content provided a way of determining the level of nesting for comments. Without the frame as a reference point users must scan the whole page to determine whether a comment is original or a response.

function checkExistingResultCount(event) {
    var searchString = event.target.value,
        target = $(event.target),
        log = $('#log-' + event.target.id),
        log = log.length ? log : target.after('<div id="log-' + event.target.id + '"></div>').next(),
        type = target.is('#StoryTitle') ? 'post\'s title' : 'posted URL',
        searchableString = searchString.replace(/ /g, "+").replace("http://",""),
        query = "https://news.layervault.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=" + searchableString + "&commit=Search",
        printResultCount = function(html) {
            var resultString = $(html).find('.SearchResults').text(), 
                resultCount = resultString ? Number(resultString.match(/\d+/)[0]) : 0;

            log.html("<p>We've found " + resultCount + " result" + (resultCount === 1 ? "" : "s") + " for " + searchString + " (check the <a href='" + query + "'>search page</a>).</p>")

Maybe comment upvoting as well, so a thread with many comments will have the most relevant or insightful comments first.
