I thought I would share my comments on the new look of FN here..
its amazing and I completely like it..
on FN HomePage:
At the bottom the REGIONAL SITES, after clicking the drop-down menu, I am not able to collapse it again. Or when I click outside, it does not go in.
Under every news heading, we have NOKIA DEVELOPER NEWS repeating. Do we have other news sources and should mention them all the time ?
This is way better as we have Design related resources, news together.
There is a imbalance as there are only 2 items in HIGHLIGHTS panel but the left panel extends quite far.
// same as above
on Wiki home Page:
There seems to be only a image-level change here.. not a complete re-engineering of UI.
there is the same imbalance due to more articles/panels in one side.
Suggestion : The Carousel type of panes.
The pane to the left needs spacing and grouping. it currently looks all stuffed up..
Inside a DiBo thread, at the bottom the buttons CONTACT US, NOKIA, ARCHIVE dont appear on Mouse over ( the text becomes white and hence invisible).
in Dibo New thread screen, THE SUBMIT NEW THREAD doesn't is not prominent.
on Wiki articles..
They dont look very appealing, They appear without breaks.. Is this the CSS issue Ron was telling this morning ?
The Share Icon(green arrow with +, in the top) doesn't condense on Mouse RollOut or Mouse Click-outside.
Looking forward to your discussion in this topic and improvement suggestions to our Wiki
Ps : All comments based on observations made in Chrome 5.0 on my Win 7.
Also sorry for the cross-post.
This is the imbalance I mentioned in the previous post.. I had to Zoom out, hence ignore the clarity in the image..
Also would like to Sign-In directly from the top-bar and not navigate to a separate page to do the same. Like in Twitter, a small panel pops out, where I can enter my username and Pwd and Click Login..
I like EDIT post here.. Its really quick and does not move me to another page..
