The man, the myth, the legend.
<3 I'm crying
Guys, I don't get it. Who is it we're laughing about? The tester? Because he does have a point.
I love it.
Wow. These are interesting, but also extremely frustrating. One guy said "I mean, I'm not really sure why I came to this site" as if that was a demerit for the design, and not the basic principle of Peek. This isn't helpful feedback. Users don't land on you site like that without any context at all.
What about the bagde in Nate´s site? xD
Love Nate's site. The average individual will definitely not 'understand' the beauty in it.
I did mine a while back. All comes down to the tester that you get.
Damn Nate sucks. Nobody hire Nate.
The company he works for does do some good work, but you can't really argue with a user when they have a bad experience.
I'd upvote this 1,000 times if I could.
I agree with you. It's impossible to please every single person though, even if the work is "good" or generally well designed.
Here's one of my site. I still think the premise of sending a random user to "test" your site is flawed. It should at least be like "Review an Online Shopping Site" or "Review an Online Publication" Something like that to give people a basis for how to judge what they are looking at.
This is hilarious
LOL! SO GOOD!
Haha I did this with my last site - http://peek.usertesting.com/result/06218159449
Thanks for sharing. Interesting to see the tester didn't notice the hamburger menu icon top right.
I thought that was interesting as well. I was definitely going for "minimal" but understood entirely that for the layperson, it had probably gone too far.
Placing it top left instead of top right may have been a better solution. People read from top left to bottom right.
Haha this guy is such a chad!
Sorry Nate, I for one like your site. :-( Anyway, are these results private or can I find more of them? I find them very interesting.
They do send you a link for your site they tested and you can access it publicly, but I'm not sure you can actually find them if you don't have the link.
Wow, this just made my morning. This is hilarious.
Actual lols came out my mouth at some of these replies already, bahaha
LoL, this is great. It's moving across the office like a wild fire. Great post.
Ran two Peek tests recently for Bennettbarn.com before it launched. Everyone seems to love the cats photo. Its always interesting to see the little details people pick up on...and how many of them notice the same seemingly minor things.
I just ran mine through Peek for the fun of it. I would agree with other comments that a single user does not make a true usability test but that aside, at least its some feedback.
Wow, it looks like she had a nice experience. Nice work.
So far I've conducted three tests through this and they have all been relatively positive. I'm a little concerned the feedback may not be truly candid.
Nevertheless, watching someone else go through a site is helpful. For instance, you can click on the images to scroll through but she never found that feature.
Copy wise, you might consider unifying the voice of the first two sections. The first one is in third-person ('Matthew Forr is...'), and the second one is in first-person ('This is my...')
