    @Vivek Venkatraman You probably have 6-8 various styles for buttons and all sort of clickable elements. I'm actual suggesting to only have 3 styles text, clickable, selected and define them consistently to decrease the learning curve. Hope this helps.

    @Vivek Venkatraman You asked for feedback on another thread (in the most sarcastic way possible) :) Anyhow ... here it goes:

    You'll confuse people less in a UI if you introduce more consistency of how colors are used to differentiate between clickables, text and selected states. As an example of where this might have been broken in the above, you use blues for clickable links and then you use the same blue style for non-clickable weekday labels in the calendar. Or sometimes white text is just text and sometimes it can be clicked on (as in the calendar). Similarly to the above, you also apply a blue border to unpressed buttons as well as use it to show selected states (as in the tabs).

    Perhaps coming up with separate and consistent visual styles for text, actionable elements and selected states might help your users "learn" a convention quicker which then could be used to help them understand: where they are, and what they can do.

    Commented on It's The Final Dribbble

    Hey Everyone. Thanks for the comments. Some things:

    Yes, many of you are right. I haven't explicitly asked for feedback. I could have done that more I guess. However, the way the system is designed also affects and can invite behaviors. So a large part of the "I like", "Way to go", "Amazing" comments can also be attributed to the platform itself.

    Without a doubt, Dribbble is still a good place to seek inspiration. That's true.

    I didn't intend to trash the tool. Just wanted to raise that there is a lot of default sugar in many Dribbble comments. Which is too bad, because I think the system could have been designed to provide a bit more "nutritious" feedback. Like the totally crappy x-height on the "a" in the image above, for example.

    Then again, I'm sure there are those pieces out there that are 99.9% perfect, that can only be liked. :)

    Anyhow ...
