They've made us reactionaries!

Recommended Posts

   They've also made us less anonymous. Now those who don't have a forum  photo will have their first initial shown instead. I want to see a post by someone with no photo, and with a symbol beginning their name. Or a number... that'll work too... maybe....

When I roll over the "?" I get this...

When I roll over those little boxes, I get no hover-text. I presume these boxes are supposed to be various reactions we can have.

When I look at the reaction tally, I see this...

I know who's reacted, but not what their reaction is. Apparently each of you three likes different size boxes.

Ship the product when it's ready, LL.

Be careful what you wish for, kids!

Oh, I do love the law of unintended consequences. (Which could bring us back around to that discussion of love buttons... )

The "?" is the Mac's default symbol for a broken graphic.

The text is hard to read, but it is there. From left to right: Thanks, Haha, Confused, Sad and Like which is on the main button.

The UI is a bit borked for me on Win 10, Firefox 54.0.1 (64-bit).

Overlapping text & icon

Reaction choices hard to read - black text on dark grey

Missing icons  & doubled reaction headings here:

Missing icons in the Activity stream - but maybe that will fix when the indexing is complete.

Even more broken in Edge browser.
No names show against the reactions & missing icons.  Yes, I'm logged in.

Anybody else feeling disinclined to acquiesce to this new change?

This sort of thing was asked for or suggested by users (at least one user). I don't remember exactly what was suggested but it was for more options than than just 'like', which often doesn't quite fit.

I think those users asked for the thing LL is attempting to do, not what they've done so far. Perhaps Whirly is right and things will sort out when the indexing is complete.

We'll see!

It also looks like we're (I'm?) back to being unable to edit posts more than a few minutes old.

I just edited a 13 hour old post.

I'm back to being able to edit, but other things are messed up. I noticed that the images I uploaded for one of my posts were appearing in several subsequent posts as well. I was temporarily unable to edit those posts to remove the images.

There must be construction dust in the gears.

Editing is only for teh specially privileged.

And so is sticky logins it seems. I have to log on every time even with the "remember me" checkbox checked and even when I've already logged on to the SL main site...

Multiple feedbacks look quite ugly on my end (Win 10 / Chrome / 1920x1200)

If you think that is bad, scroll up to Rhonda's and Whirly's posts and see how it look on Firestorm.

 

Edit:

Important rule for designers of all kinds: Good design is 90% functionality, 10% looks. (Not that it has anything to do with this thread of course - just mentioning it in passing...)

Yeah, but we wanted it to actually be usable.   ¬¬
