DotNetNuke User Experience Team Cracks Me Up

Today it was drawn to my attention that the DotNetNuke Corporation has a User Experience Team. Good on DNN Corp for caring about UI, and so they should.

What cracks me up about it is this.

Go to the webpage and seek more information on the UI team members. First from the list is Joe Brinkman. (Not picking on you Joe, but your smile is first on the list).

Where is my User Experience I would like to know? How can a UI team allow the details page of their team profile pictures look like that… I’m still laughing about it as I write it now.

Are you serious???

 

 

 

This is like one of those Microsoft jokes they play on me as a system admin. They give me an error log, with a meaningless code in an event view… then for a joke they give me a link to a support site that has NO SUPPORT.

They even call the link a help and support link. Yet every link has exactly NO help.image

Now I am sure that there is a big counter on the wall in Microsoft land, with a big number ticking over for every time a users clicks a help link and gest NO HELP! They are sitting there watching and laughing so hard that they did not see apple dominating their market for the last 5 years.

I wonder if the DNN UI team has something similar… something that at least gives them a laugh each time a user clicks for more information about the team, and finds not only… absolutely NO INFORMATION, but NO INFORMATION DELIVERED WITH THE WORST UI POSSIBLE!

  1. I agree about the Microsoft error. I think I remember getting one (often) that said ‘Error h34hh23h4h2. For more information on this error go to http://www.microsoft.com‘ with a link. It has been much faster, for a decade, to just google the error. Or the occassional ones like the one you posted that actually do lead to a help page with the exact same text as in the error log, ‘The user name [username] does not map to a real username. The entery is ignored.” And you have to wait for the whole slow page to load to find this out. What were they thinking?

    And I do get the feeling sometimes that DNN has followed this ‘puzzle’ programing mode.

    1. The more I get into “Apple Land”, the more I realize how I have been some how brainwashed into accepting the Microsoft Experience, when really I have been craving the Apple experience. I’m literally laughing at the revelation in myself that I cannot believe I have put up with this JUNK for so many years as a system administrator. When with some care and planning, Microsoft could have delivered a 1000 times better user experience. They just don’t care! – It appears that DotNetNuke falls into the same category.
