What's wrong with your design and UI dev team? This site is terrible!

15452-image.png



This site is complete garbage both in design and function.

First of all, my question "how to make local news search work?" has gone by hitting the submit button. That's functional problem.

Second, this docs.microsoft.com design. Do you need card layouts that much? You can replace them by just a couple of combo boxes. And in Q&A, the "Questions that may already have your answer" pop-up is very annoying. Before you put it there, notice this: if people ask the same questions over and over, that means the docs-reference-samples-Q&A resources are missing or badly organized. Also, make titles and menu buttons pop up more than other elements - why does the "REMEMBER TO..." section have to be that large and with Black Bold? The section advices "all caps will not increase likelihood to be answered" and the title of the section "REMEMBER TO..." looks like an alien cap design in this page.

My solution - return to the old MSDN forums. They were at least usable.

totally agree! what a rubbish website. Normally you migrate to something better not worse.

I also agree. MSDN was in need of improvement but this site is a pathetic replacement by comparison.

I have been using MSDN and TechNet for many years and I agreed with the fact that the design and UI for this website is not as great as it suppose to be. However, I also understand that this is just a starting point and Microsoft engineers are working on improving this platform.
Therefore, I would recommend you to share specific feedback to improve the design. Consider question like what should be done to make this website better and UI more user friendly and you may share it as multiple feedbacks. Even though talking about issue with the UI is valid argument but it is subjective. You may share separate feedbacks and talk about features which will improve this website and in case they are valid requirement and it would have high impact on this platform , consider they are have sufficient resources, product team will take it into consideration.
