Hi, it's me again with another survey. I know, but to my benefit we made some changes. We are using Frama Soft to avoid using Google Forms and have new questions with some of the oldest ones. All this, thanks to suggestions from @ivan and tutors.

Without any further, I leave the survey.

Hello everyone. I am part of a UX team. We are working with the people of Bonfire (@ivan and @mayel ). This time I would leave this survey so each of ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​you can answer it, and we can do a better job on our part. It will be available until Monday 17 at 5 pm, so I would appreciate it if you answer it as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

I wrote a thing as, having being confused about 'granular boundaries' I'm now rather excited!

A quick update: we're just about ready to release the first iteration of circles and boundaries, which you can read about here: bonfirenetworks.org/posts/in...


We deployed the update to the playground earlier but ran into a mysterious issue that didn't appear until now, so have rolled back to the previous version until we figure that one out. Wish us luck! 🤞

eager to release the improvements to the main layout, all the fixes we did in the last 2 weeks, most of them based on your feedbacks and user testing, plus our first implementation of bonfire boundaries system 🤩

Of course, degrading communication in such a manner degrades social mobility; blaming or rewarding a child for their "grades" in an exercise (in which they're supposed to do mistakes, that's how we learn things!) brings down poor children and narrows down their possibilities to the most essential, less paid jobs (like construction, the food supply chain, and so on).


Spreading NVC is an action against oppression.

How many online "communities" would be better described as online "associations"?
Community should be distinguished from association. The distinction is fundamentally one of commitment and identity. Associations, even while they provide their own form of social glue, make little claim on our loyalties and at best make minor contributions to our identities.

In response to several feedbacks related to the general layout and the composer experience, we prepared a few mockups to highlight some UX improvements we'd like to discuss with you.

Main feedbacks gravitated around the possibility to have as much space as possible for the main content view, a clearer navigation menu and clear distinction between navigation and widgets sections. 

Looking at the near future, we tried also to imagine how to organize the space in the navigation sidebar to have enough space for groups and lists.


In particular, we spent some time thinking at an altenative UX to compose a post. This is for different reasons:


- We're working on flexible boundaries / lists - and a dropdown is not enough to let the user work with such granular permissions levels

- We want to have a composer box that incentivate also toughtful posts, not just toots/tweets

- We want to have a unique composer box that works in any situation (actual fullscreen mode is buggy)

- We still want to be able to compose a post while scrolling the feed or reading through the comments in a thread

- The composer box should not be always visible on the page, but it should be 1-click away to start composing a post (with keyboard shortcut also)

- The user should be able to work on different drafts
