In post 397, Kison wrote:Two changes to help alleviate performance issues with site chat when navigating across the site:

Only up to 30 messages will autoload per page load. You can still load more by scrolling to the top of the window and hitting "Load More Messages."
Some enhanced coding is in place to improve the load speed of messages. Should be several times faster than the old method.

thanks for the work kison.

I will reiterate a point I made in chat though.

I think the colored Usernames are very bad user experience. In chat, you want to draw the users attention to the message that they are going to read, differences in color for the user names instead draw the users attention to the username itself and not the message. This is ultimately very distracting to me. Though I get the idea behind the change I think the implementation ultimately leads to a much worse design and makes chat more difficult to follow as its intended because the different colors make it harder to focus on the messages.

It may make more sense to limit it to the user list. For the channel windows we can probably get rid of it, or at the very least let people disable it. I agree it's not really necessary there.

I barely use site chat or even this site so I don't really want anything.

Just because you are a professional UX designer, it doesn't immediately make anyone else's opinions invalid.

Hell, hiplop is a user of the sitechat, and I think it's fair to say the users get a say in what they think they prefer considering that, you know, they're the ones the changes are aimed at.

I'm not saying you don't get a say - after all, you're a user too. All I'm saying is get off your high horse and don't act like your opinion is the be-all, end-all of opinions to do with it.

You can say "I like this" but you can't say "this is good UX"

the first statement can be correct. the second statement is objectively false.

given that I made my post based around arguments for why this is bad UX, the response "I think its fine" is disrespectful and nonsensical especially since it didn't offer any counterpoint to the UX theory points I brought up which are 100% valid regardless of if any given user finds it enjoyable.

Which is why I responded in kind. My opinion wasn't me simply saying "I don't like this." it was saying "from the perspective of UX design, these are poor design choices for the following reasons." Saying "naahhhhhhh I think its fine" was glib and irrelevant to what I was saying.

Phrases such as

In post 408, Thestatusquo wrote:to me
strongly suggest your post, as it was, to be an entirely personal opinion, your point of view, rather than the view of any professional. Thus, to call hiplop out is silly - you think it's bad, he thinks it's good, and regardless of whether or not either of you have a "reason" or "point" as to why it is, to offer whether you think it is good is still of value and not entirely worth shrugging off, and I'm sure Kison would agree that even just an "I think it's good" is relevant.

Pretty much.

I'm a UX professional and I think it's fine. :3


Thanks for your work Kison, especially for a site that you essentially have no use for.
