    +1. I doubt if we have any mods around anymore. Too many low quality posts slipping through lately.

      We’re not. We’ve tried to help, but the owners don’t care. I think I speak for most of us when I say I’ve given up.

    Designer News is pretty dead. Poor UX, outdated UI and tech, and now non stop spam posts.

      In the last 3-6 mo the post quality has dropped significantly. IT wasn't the best before but now its terrible. Flooded with low quality posts.

    I understand your frustration with Designer News. It's disappointing when a platform you used to enjoy becomes difficult to use or less enjoyable. If you have specific concerns or issues with Designer News, I recommend reaching out to their support team or providing feedback on the platform's https://alarabinuk.com/ website if available. Your feedback could potentially contribute to improvements or changes that make the platform more user-friendly in the future. Additionally, you might explore alternative design or tech communities online that better align with your preferences and needs.

    Sad but true. On the other hand, what's the alternative?

    yep—which is why a friend of mine and I built Meld.so! It's a bit rough and we haven't been posting to it regularly cause we've been dealing with some day-job stuff! But it's there and ready for designers and developers alike.

    Oh, and we'll moderate it.
