ME: Asking Mastodon developers to make the UX less hot trash.
<Snark> I know FOSS UX is meant to be as aggressively painful and unintuitive to scare away the normies or whatever but what's the point of an anti-social social-network UX
@shlee FLORIAN: "Please use the [non-existent] forum search function before logging a bug in the tracker. I note that the UX reads perfectly for me auf Deutsch. Closing"
@shlee wouldn't want The Wrong Sort Of People being able to work out how to use your social network now!
@shlee the people who code and the people who design have little overlap. Very few can do both to an acceptable level
While developers for some reason found it beneficial to share and collaborate on code and do it at ever growing scale, that is not common behavior in other areas
This has been the Achilles heel of #opensource because without good UX the adoption and diffusion suffers
@shlee 👏 yes! a lot of this isn't accessibly explained
i didn't even know my logins were instance specific when i first joined because it did say it anywhere in the signup
i can give you some help and information if you want it
