    usability enhancements ? Mar 20, 2008

    Do you belief the thumbnails that garble the screen are a usability enhancement?
    If not under what category do they fall, and where are the usability enhancements?

    In my opinion the screens could do with some cleaning. I would consider it a usability enhancement if I could customize the screen more to my needs.

    usability Mar 20, 2008

    I assume you were referring ti usability on the Connect platform, Jason, but when it comes to general usability and particularly the homepage, I'm with Siegfried. Other than making the homepage slower and longer (we need to scroll down even more than before), do the thumbnails add any valuable information to the homepage? I'd clean it up instead of cluttering it more with photos.

    I'm very interested in using the Network feature, thank you for implementing it, but I'm still waiting for some screenshots so I can see what it will look like before I start sending invitations to colleagues (I requested this in the thread dedicated to My Network).

    What's next, a blog?
    Dating service?

    I know, that social computing is a strong industry trend, but why implement it in translator's directory?
