      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

OMG THAT WAS SOOOOO FUNNY!!!!

 

I laughed out loud so many times!

 

My favorite screen was the 'create a password' part:

 

8-20 characters. Must contain one uppercase letter, two lowercase letters, three numgers, two punctuation marks, and one or more ancient glyphs from any of the following civilizations: Mayans, Egyptians, or the infamous Portuguese monkey lords.

 

THAT IS HYSTERICAL!!!

Extremely well done and unfortunately so true.

 

You get the feeling with so many applications that no user tests have ever been done. In other words, sitting a new user in front of a screen and a keyboard and watching how they do. If many very common examples did that with only one user I'm sure they would learn a lot. I presume they rely on complaints. If they get only a few, then the response will be 'If it's not broken, why fix it?'

 

My biggest peave is Log In and Log Out buttons or links. My online library website is in general very good but log in and log out is something you have to search for.

 

I use a SalesForce system in the charity I work with. That software costs mega bucks and in general is extremely good. However if you want to log out, there's a pull down menu and you click on a small link at the bottom.

 

You'll find the same thing with online banking systems. They make the button/link hard to find sometimes then spend a great deal of effort trying to remind you to log off when you're finished.

 

As usual, there's not enough KISS-ing. :)

Yeah, I actually had to call Amazon the first time I wanted to log out of a pc at work. I could not find the button anywhere!
