while i do not have a screenshot, that CMS reminds me of the Oracle Siebel-based ticketing system i worked with while at a subdivision of McAfee

10% of the screen was consumed by pre-populated fields and 80% by fields that were only relevant to other parts of McAfee's business, but completely unused by us

the basic free text case description field where we input everything, because you can't easily describe complex TCP proxy issues in predefined fields, was about 250x100px

The other fun thing is that it's basically impossible to do revision comparisons. I've got pages and pages of exactly this written over the course of the last 10 years that I'm now responsible for.

i understand why visual programming languages exist from the perspective of representing circuits, but not being able to automatically decompose them into pure text function representation seems a ux nightmare for anything moderately complex

trying to read anything other than basic poo poo in reaktor seems nigh impossible

Ladder logic hits a nice sweet spot for visual programming. It can always be decomposed into equivalent text pretty easily. It is more limited in its flexibility compared to labview or simulink, but it's still really useful for programming complex bit logic in a format that's more intuitive to interpret.

discord has an ok ux except for one glaring thing theyíre refuse to fix* but the biggest gripe is that itís a great tool that is useful for many communities but leans into the gamer aesthetic

I have it set up for a pharmacy group and itís basically perfect except that I cringe when I imagine health professionals opening up the app for the first time



*apparently if you have it open on your desktop, you canít force it to send notifications to all devices, so i could be logged in at home and miss an important notification on my phone because home pc got the notifications. apparently this is working as intended. ok but why the gently caress isnít there an option?

A lot of video editing software seems like this. Super powerful, but comes with UX that feels like something from Windows XP, which really makes it feel dumbed down.

more bad ux: pressing the windows key and typing to search has lag before it starts accepting input so if you don't wait a tick before typing, it's gonna miss the first letter and then when you hit enter, instead of opening vs code, it's gonna open a web search for odell beckham jr

I've had similar issues, but kind of the opposite order. The search also has a lag updating the results. So I might be typing "vs c" and I see the "VS Code" search result; however, my brain is still typing when I see the result, so now I'm at "vs co" and hit enter, but at that exact moment the results will update and now I've opened a browser window to search for "vs company" or something.


Medical software UX: I worked at a security company for a summer in college. One of the tasks they gave to me was to help with vulnerability testing with some web app for tracking prescriptions for patients or something like that. It was like pages filled with something but input fields. No UI design. That was what made me realize I never want to take a software job near medical-related software.

copyright and DRM are pure, distilled, bad UX.
