I was too busy vomiting into the paper bag.
True; it loads and renders pretty fast for me, on my desktop PC and on my Pi 3B. It's somewhat slow to respond to mouse-over events and activate animations on the Pi using Chromium but that's to be expected.
is quite correct - there is an awful lot of different styles going on here. There is also way too much colour on the page. I suspect that a style guide was worked out and then given to the designer who felt that he/she had to use positively every single colour in the book. I'm not saying that every website has to be corporate, bare and sterile, but the page is very hard on the eye when you're scrolling through trying to find what you want.The banner on top of page uses 2 pictures, and sharp geometric figures. The next section is all soft. In the "community" banner the geometric design comes back... I'm not convinced the contrast adds clarity to the page. Overall I think the page is very busy and the various sections are not easy to identify.
Quite a mix, for me: 1.2 GHz Intel Core M w/ Intel HD Graphics 5300
The first thing a designer should learn is the well known "7 plus/minus 2" rule (in psychology of perception and awareness): The human consciousness cannot access more than 7 (plus/minus 2) items at the same time. Everything cluttered with more content just creates confusion.grega wrote: ↑Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:06 amQuite a mix, for me: 1.2 GHz Intel Core M w/ Intel HD Graphics 5300
We test on a variety of Pis (often over VNC, where performance is further impacted).
However as mentioned above, work is ongoing (/ never-ending) especially where it comes to performance, device support and accessibility.
Thank you to those posting reasonable (rather than unsubstantiated) criticisms / feedback.
That kind of begs the question.... Yes, the target audience for the *Pi* is kids, often relatively young kids. But shouldn't the web site be attractive to the kids *parents* (or, in my case, grandparents) who will be--at least initially--looking for information, advice, and help in getting their kids (grandkids) started with the Raspberry Pi? , Is this a case of designing the web site for the target population for the product instead of for the population that will be buying the product, which may very well be a radically different group?HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Fri Jul 20, 2018 7:03 amFor the forum, switch to the prosilver theme. It makes navigation easier.
As for the main raspberrypi.org site, I don't really care one way or another. I usually just go there to click on one of the links at the top, the they're still there, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It does seem to be targeted at a younger audience, but that's the mission isn't it? Get inexpensive computers into the hands of youngsters and encourage them to learn to code. So it makes sense to me.
Don't be ageist. I have been grumpy my whole life.You are all a bunch of grumpy old men...
Why, thank you!
