since pixelsmith commented on some problems of the vvvv website, i try to collect some issues i see / seen in the past
main entry point for beginners. i appreciate the recent work there but its too complex. no clue what to look at first. there is so much text and things to click: alpha/beta, wiki options underneath the headline, descriptions, addons, 32bit, packs …and the shoutbox on the right. just take a step back and try to see it like someone who enters this site the first time. compare it with the processing download page
still just a big pile of things getting lost in no layout
i’m still not in love with a tag based forum. things get lost if not tagged right. and ppl do not use tags if not guided by an interface. in a traditional forum you would click a category (i.e.hardware) and add a thread…hence ‘tagged’ by interface.
the attitude “everything you know is wrong” is not always the best way…escpecially when it comes to interface design
i see the effects of this every day in uni, even students who get hooked with vvvv don’t use the website since its a frustrating experience. nonetheless, i promote the website!
