Boxes and Arrows

Boxes and Arrows. Great articles, but I really dislike their new design. Star ratings everywhere? Apart from the fact that they are fairly meaningless (so 3 people rated this article 4 stars on average. What the hell does that mean? Nothing at all is the correct answer.), they really throw the visual design of the page out of balance. And then the cropping of text. Why is the sidebar full of text like “Wireframes f…” or “How to: ment…”? Come on!

Enough bitching – I’m lazy too. But these are all things IA’s would care about, so I’m surprised B&A would get them so wrong.

I *do* really like the fact that they don’t only indicate who wrote an article, but also who edited it. That’s good.
