Coldblackice User Jun '14 I welcome anyone to give feedback about the site and convince us how we could change it to make it better. I've not only given you a copious amount of feedback, but I've backed nearly all of my suggestions with logic, reasoning, and rationale. I will not engage someone who insinuates hidden motives behind our design decisions. Instead of getting offended by the correlation, why not address the points with reasoning and rationale? If someone accused you of being the culprit in a bank robbery, would you A.) get a megaphone and denounce the accusations, taking personal offense at them and telling them to "Get the ** out", or B.) logically state that it could not have been you, because you were somewhere else at such and such a time, so it couldn't possible be so? I consider this a blatant attempt at character assassination. And yet, you still have not addressed any of the correlations with logic or reasoning, other than equivalently saying "Nope", "Because I said so", "Someone else designed it". I've pointed out how many of these counterings of common design practice nearly all similarly contribute to some manner of "padding", whether post counts, vertical space, etc. You've still said nothing to show otherwise, and instead of switched to a straw-man of "Ignore the message; Attack the messenger." If you would simply address the points with your rationale, the matter would've been silence a number of posts ago. Either change your tone if your motives are genuine, or gtfo. Interesting -- telling someone to play with a nicer tone or to "Get the ** out." That really instills a sense of peaceful levelheadedness in the matter. Although I'd hope for otherwise, I anticipate that the attacks on the "messenger" will continue, and that the "message" will be lost from discussion and explanation. I wouldn't be surprised if my posts and account even get deleted for this. But if there won't be any response to the content of my message, then I'll offer this last tip -- If you're looking to claim the crown of USO's passing, the success of your site, and any other alternative site, is in the most critical time of opportunity -- now. With each passing minute, the userscript community is picking and solidifying a new "home". Your design and layout changes should be implemented yesterday, on a rolling basis, and not on a future v2.0. Although it's nice to roll out a package of change all at once, when you're in a period of criticality as you are now, you should be making immediate changes as they come. Very soon, the majority of users are going to be set on their new "home" for userscripts. If you continue to hold off on critical design and layout changes, it will surely serve to drive users toward alternate sites. If you don't mind that happening, and you're content with being a niche site in the userscript realm, then that's completely fine and understandable. But in my professional opinion -- take it or leave it -- there are a number of design principles here that go against web convention and without any seeming added benefit for such. In general, no one likes arbitrary change just for the sake of changing. A car manufacturer that swaps the placement of the ignition key with the placement of the gas cap will not only fail to attract users with this design/layout change, but will surely drive users away, as there would be no logical reasoning for such a change. So if you still want to ignore the suggestions and subsequent logic and reasoning, that's fine -- but at the very least, start rolling out whatever design changes you have up your sleeve now, on a rolling basis, and not waiting for a future day when they're refined and polished. While that may be the ideal for an established brand and product, the difference in this case is that you have a nation of user's who are frantically at a fork in the road for their new home -- with each passing minute, more and more users are making their choice, and short of catastrophe or dramatic change, they'll likely follow where the most users go and stick with their choice. So time is of the essence!
