Ramblings of an Essence

Just another main blog - I'm probably going to post whatever here, reblogs and all kinds of original stuff. If it gets too annoying I may re-make the AoA Sideblog. For now, here's all my original content.

I wasn't going to post my game stuff on my main account, but one account is easier to maintain, so I feel sorry for anyone who follows me, my account will eventually be even more varied.

I commented with "god bless" but I'm in annoyed developer mode now while I wait for our storage server to spin down so I can yank the dead drive

It boils down to "folks are spoiled". Look at Tumblr and Twitter and what have you. They're pretty, but work shit. Like I said on staff the other day, those sites have successfully shifted the mindset to a site needs to look good to be worth using. Hell, that Other:tm: site we were talking to - the staff wrote us off because we looked plain. You used that site briefly so you know how badly the site worked because they put too much effort into looking good.

The problem is folks EXPECT a site to run like ass now but look good. So when a site lets you do stuff but is just to-the-point with how it looks, it doesn't "feel" right so they can't use it. Like in the Discord, we've had folks say "once I found it it seemed really obvious it'd be there" to where the settings on here are and stuff - because we've built it logically rather than all Modern React/Vue UIs and shit, but because EVERYWHERE ON THE INTERNET does that shit, Waterfall feels too foreign in comparison because we're not fucking around with it.

And when stuff feels like too much of a change, you're put off using it, even if it's better.
