[done] Botch (not really)

Hi there!

The Arduino web stuff is botch.

Does anyone else than me recognize that

|500x86

must have been designed by a color blind person?! Is there really nobody who feels responsible for that (for weeks)?

Another thing: On blog pages at blog.arduino.cc I'm told that I have to be logged in to leave a comment. So I should log in twice?!

I can't imagine owning an Arduino board and still being bored enough to waste time complaining about an advertisement using a slightly different shade of teal. Don't you have some amazing projects you could be working on right now?

pert: Don't you have some amazing projects you could be working on right now?

I do.

But it seems you don't feel at least a bit responsible for things like that?

Gregor

I dont see the adverts at all here but from the picture I dont really see anything worth a winge.

Oh and for the login issue. It is a known thing as they move to another authentication protocol so until that is fully implemented YES you have to log in twice but it should do so as a pass through and miss a screen (at least thats what happens here).

There are a couple more areas you might also come across the extra logins too.

Well, yes ... I didn't complain about that the last weeks (if not months). So I'm somewhat pain proof (or how do you say that?)

Thanks for that info.

No, I don't feel responsible. I don't have any involvement in the production of that ad.

I don't even have enough knowledge about the design policies to say whether the choice of background color was intentional. If you look around the site, you'll notice there is a palette of different shades of teal in use; that is definitely intentional. I will concede that none of the few shades I looked at exactly match the shade used in the ad.

Yes there are different shades of teal in the design of the Arduino stuff but those I've seen so far (except the one I'm complaining about) only differ in brightness not hue. And maybe I'm kind of special concerning things like design issues since I spent many years working on such things.

So, to make things short: Who do you think I should address?

I am grinning posting this.

Adverts change at the drop of a hat and would not mind betting there is maybe just one complaint so far :grin:

I get that. I've been a glassblower for 20 years and I grind my teeth over minor details on glass pieces that the average person either wouldn't notice or would think were done intentionally.

As someone who has spent the last 7 years providing support to Arduino users, I get very steamed up about little things I see professional developers do in Arduino sketches that they don't even think twice about, but I know will cause difficulties for beginners.

The best way to report this is via the Arduino support form: https://store.arduino.cc/store-support

Thanks for being patient, guys!

It seems I needed some kind of minor reality check. Different people are different.

Wait you mean this is reality...Oh dang I took the wrong colour pill this morning.
