This is now live across the network. See the new post for feedback now that you can see it in action.
I’m still noodling on the user profile while on our way to full responsiveness. This next round addresses feedback from my prior post, but I’ve separated it into a new post for a cleaner history.
This time, I’m trying something new. Here’s a 5 minute tour of what I’m doing with way more context, and way more examples. You also get to see my face 😛. Screenshots alone just aren’t cutting it on such a dynamic part of our app.
Remember, I’m just working on that top portion of the profile pages in this round of updates. I fully intend to ship what I’m demoing here. I think this round of changes will serve us well moving forward.
- Unifies the navigation between each section: Profile, Activity, Developer Story, Settings
- Groups profile links
- Groups moderator-only links
- Refines the placement of about me and various stats
- Removes some redundant stats
- Adds a "Read more" button on longer bios. No more scrolling!
Ok, but for real, watch the tour.
A note on the profile changes
These are some big changes, but there is so much room for improvement in these profiles. I’m trying to balance a light touch and a full redesign. I can’t run every change by the Community ahead of time, but I respect the thoughts and opinions that are respectfully shared here. Thanks for all the feedback! Please keep it coming!
Remember, I’m just a guy trying to do right by all of you.
