Usability Question

After doing the working through some of the useability videos it has made me think about what I am doing and the visitor experience to the sites I build. Curse you Dan Gorgone.

So the questions is do the links on - who will play me in the movie of my life and also my favourite website question on the profile page of our forthcoming company website.

  1. Add interest.
  2. Too confusing and move people away from the site.
  3. Are a bit of fun in a people section.
  4. Is the information scent rubbish (learnt a new phrase today)

All of the above. Welcome all and any thoughts.

Hi! I edited the first badge for accessibility. Not an expert, but very interested in accessibility.

Your page renders nicely without style sheets. Good job!

Check this page out: http://accessibility.psu.edu/linkshtml

For your links, it recommends NOT opening a new window. "NOTE: If links do open in a new window, include a textual indication (e.g. External Resources [New Window]) so screen reader users are aware of the new window."

Re: Questions- They're fun. Keep them!

Best, Anthony

I'm gunna opt for:

  1. Are a bit of fun in a people section.

If you are going to go to the length of having an About area and profiles of staff, then why not have a bit of fun with it, it gives it a bit of personality :-)

Ha, thanks for the nice comments, Graham!

The links you provide are very cool: it's clear from the questions listed that you're providing some casual fun answers instead of the usual stuffy, boring biographical information. It shows personality, and the links help illustrate your points - and naturally, we're flattered you think of Treehouse so highly.
