    Fury here.

    First thing I noticed after logging in is that there was too much information and I didn’t know where to go and where to start. For example, what is the difference between forums and groups? At least some info under them would be nice to have. Tooltips are not intuitive, neither in their design (I didn’t know I had to hover to get more info) nor in their description (I understand they’re just placeholders?). Also, this looked like a dashboard to me, but there were both “last community activity” and links for groups and forums. I would delete the big buttons for groups and forums and just leave them at the top in the navigation. There, it’s more intuitive to hover over to see more info.

    And yet after clicking on both groups and forums, I still don’t see the difference. There’s a group for digital artists, a group for web3 devs and then… a forum for web3 devs? Why? What’s the difference?

    I love the blog & knowledge base. The blog is how lenster should have looked… or any of the apps on lens, to be honest. I’d definitely use it if there were many people using this site. Speaking of which… I think the website in itself is good, but it’s largest hurdle is going to be getting people to use it. I think there needs to be a really compelling reason for anyone to use it over anything, because websites have a hard time getting a share of the pie when there’s “everything in one place” with websites like reddit, twitter, discord, etc. This is the reason web3 apps incite interest with tokens and reputation farming. Doubt there’s other ways of getting eyes on this.

    Additionally, it would be hard to make anyone put hours into writing anything in forums/blogs on this website, as for anyone who knows your antics it would seem a risky affair. What if one day you just decide to nuke it like you nuked wiki & your reddit account? I think this might also be a reason why EVMs are hesitant to check out your website and give feedback, because it might not turn into anything in the end…

    On a lighter note, I don’t know if it’s planned, but there should be a better landing page since even after opening the website and logging in I still had a hard time figuring what it is and what it’s for. Is there a one-sentence pitch/mission that separates this website from all the others? If so, make it clear on the landing page

    I also went to check out the extended navigation and there’s photos, videos, documents? What is this, are you trying to make a new facebook, a jack of all trades? Is this social media or a website for work/work groups? Because if it’s the former, then it’s too much stuff (why do I need a blog with a documents list?), and if it’s the latter then there should be more focus on it, such that if I were to do EVM-related stuff, I would find no purpose in having forums and blogs if all I am doing is coordinating projects with others. At the very least, there should be 2 accounts or a simple switch between them, like on linkedin — whether you’re a job seeker or a recruiter. Same here, whether you’re here for the forums or do to work coordination, your view shouldn’t be riddled with stuff you don’t need.

    That’s my honest feedback from spending 20 min on the website, hope it helps <3

    P.S. I don’t know if it’s just me but page loading times are about 1s

    P.P.S. I love that my comment didn’t disappear after I accidentally closed it, I hate when sites lose it (looking at you, reddit)
