These are generally pretty sloppy. Too much unreadable paragraph text and careless type pairings.
Here's a more considered series of Google fonts in use: http://hellohappy.org/beautiful-web-type/
Was going to post the same link! That one has much better pairing.
Like the link! Thanks for sharing.
Wow, nasty comments.
The Hello Happy link is good too but those pairings haven't been updated in a few years - it's always good to see fresh opinions and perspectives added to the design community -even if you don't happen to agree with them.
If you think these really are so sloppy / ugly, why not submit your own idea of a nicer pairing to that github repo instead of taking pointless jabs at someone sharing their own tastes?
Here here! There's nothing helpful or productive about negative comments.
Yeah it drives me crazy. DN getting heavy on the snark these days.
It's sort of the nature of a community, I guess. The larger you are, the harder it is to maintain community values.
While I understand the reasoning behind DN's lack of a downvote button, I wish there were a way of pushing unproductive comments down or tagging them as such. We can call people out for now (and thank you for doing that!), but as the community continues to grow, I wonder how sustainable that is.
I really do care about communities and don't want to ruin the quality here at all. My comment was spontaneous, maybe a bit dumb and totally unnecessary. I guess I was in a bad mood, saw the link, didn't like it and posted something sloppy. Next time, thinking before posting might be better! Agreed.
One question though... Are honest but negative comments, that don't offer anything helpful except a spontaneous personal opinion really that bad for a forum? Do you believe comments like that are ruining the fun here? I'm not sure.
I'm not trying to defend my shitty comment at all, but am interested to learn what makes and brakes a forum/discussion.
Well, consider DN's stated purpose: "a place to discuss and share interesting things in our industry." and their commenting guideline, "be thoughtful".
Would you consider "that's ugly" a solid contribution to a discussion? Is it thoughtful? Does it help anyone, or was it just an outlet for your bad mood?
Negative insults don't necessary make/break a community; it really depends on what values the community is trying to cultivate. I would argue however that it goes against what DN is trying to do.
You're right Chantal. It's just not DN's purpose and thus not the right place. Thanks for pointing it out. Learned something.
Glad we could chat it out. :) Thanks Olivier!
fancy but still ugly. sorry no offense.
