Hi all,

Long time!..

My friends and I've been working on a small webapp.
WhatisWrongWith.me (http://whatiswrongwith.me)

It helps you get feedback from your friends/colleagues/anyone
... anonymously :)

Each user gets a personal url. Here's mine:
WhatisWrongWith.me/tagnu (http://whatiswrongwith.me/tagnu)

Suggestions, mistakes, anything... ?

Fingers crossed!

Btw, if you want to be anonymous, feel free to leave an "anonymous feedback" on my page. (http://whatiswrongwith.me/tagnu)
(self promotion :))
Thank you

I don't like that the "wrong" in the logo is italicised. It looks bizarre because of the font.
I don't think "this_site" as an example link, though I know it's supposedly a demo (: Perhaps a name would be better?
Those images at the bottom also are a bit weird because one of them is actually a widget. Either make it clear that two of them are images or remove the widget for a screenshot of Twitter.
I think your feedback page needs work. It's needlessly cluttered.
Having this: "WhatisWrongWith.me says: New feature - Type in different languages हिंदी 汉语/漢語 العربية русский язык" and the whole other language thing does not seem appropriate to me unless you've localised the page. That English doesn't have to be explicitly selected is also disconcerting.
The example list is also redundant. I thought that those were examples of feedback already given.
You should also never use "click here" as a link. It's thoroughly bad style.

Don't let my list of criticisms deter you. Interesting execution of an interesting concept

few little problems:

- css, font existence/size dependence, ( see attachement):


div#meth p { padding-top: 4em; }
div#meth p.fb { padding: 4em 10px 10px; }


- noscript is missing, would be probably better to notify users they need javascript enabled, :)

i like idea and how was done, :)

best regards

Hi Apostropartheid,

Thank you for the feedback. I've added some of them to our to-do list. Thank you again. :)

Let me clarify my thoughts on some of them:

1. Logo:

I don't like that the "wrong" in the logo is italicised. It looks bizarre because of the font.


Hmm.. it was actually, 'what' - normal text, 'is' - bold, 'wrong' - italic and 'with' - underline.

2. Demo link


I don't think "this_site" as an example link, though I know it's supposedly a demo (: Perhaps a name would be better?


We've created a new page 'demo', which will be integrated soon.

3. Widgets


Those images at the bottom also are a bit weird because one of them is actually a widget. Either make it clear that two of them are images or remove the widget for a screenshot of Twitter.


Yes true :( it is confusing (when revisiting again), just got used to the design. It's gone back to the drawing board.

4. Feedback page


I think your feedback page needs work. It's needlessly cluttered.


Yes, it got cluttered as the page evolved :)

May be we should revisit the design.
Any article/book you suggest on interface design?

I'll be back to reply more..

Thank you again for the feedback.

Hi oesxyl,

Thank you for your feedback,



- css,:


We had this css issue (as shown in the attachment) in the beginning.
Thought we got it resolved, but I guess it's still there. Which is your browser?


font existence/size dependence, ( see attachement)

Sorry, I didn't understand "font existence/size dependence" are you referring to the case where the user is unable to load the custom font?


- noscript is missing, would be probably better to notify users they need javascript enabled, :)

Added. Thank you.

Hi oesxyl,

you are welcome, :)

this two problems come toghether. I use ffox 3.5 but the problem apear because you use em for padding. That means the position depend on:
- existence of the font, if doesn't exists is replaced with what browser think is closer
- font size, user custom css or minimum font size setting in the browser will change the top padding.
as far as i can see you doesn't mix px with em, so i have no clue why is happend.
using 6.0em for padding-top works for me but probably is broken in other browsers( i mean the gap between the p and the rest is probably too big).

best regards

Updated the layout. Moved the widget down and replaced the top rows with images.

Hopefully, it's less confusing now :)

No, it would actually be better to make it work without JavaScipt! I see no reason why would or should only work with JavaScript Ė or if it actually doesnít work without JS then donít show the option to write in different languages in the first place. Why make me see something I couldnít use anyway?

Make it a seamless experience for any user, no matter whether they have or donít have JS.

js can be disabled even if is available. Don't you think that in this case is better to notify user that is js used then to let him guess that is used?
btw, the site work with js disabled from the begining, :)

Hi,

Thank you for the feedback.

It is a very simple app, so it works fine without js. JavaScript was added later to give users extra features.

Yes, people disable JS or have noscript plugin installed. (i have :)) So, I think it is good to let people know about enhancements which they can avail with JS enabled.


if it actually doesnít work without JS then donít show the option to write in different languages in the first place

VIP, I have a mixed feeling here, wouldn't it be a good idea to give people a preview of the feature, even if it is disabled?

But, for the time being, I've removed the feature completely when JS is disabled.

Thank you again for your feedback :)
