since pixelsmith commented on some problems of the vvvv website, i try to collect some issues i see / seen in the past
still seems to come up with interesting results, if you don’t exactly hit the keyword, you have trouble to find, what you were looking for, try “direct-x 11” … korean contribution ?
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!
