The recent update states:
- [MBS-11146] – Add “Reviews” tab for CritiqueBrainz
The submitter of this ticket that this should try and help encourage more reviews, but if anything it’s just been made more difficult.
Now all the review content, including the button to click to encourage people to leave a review in the first place, has been shoved under another tab!
I’m not trying to be a negative nancy here, but I thought we were trying to get more people to know about CB and that should be piped from one of the more popular projects being MusicBrainz, sticking reviews under a tab and taking away a quick and easy “click this button/link/element to leave a review” has made it more complicated.
I’ve spoken to @aerozol recently (in a direct message) about this, and he asked my process and I said that point it was quite simple:
RG entity on MBZ > click Write Review > Give Star Rating > Type in my lovely review > hit submit
And advised it couldn’t be sped up, but now theres a new element called “click on Reviews tab” between the first and second steps.
Just while I think about this, and everyone’s got an opinion and doesn’t mean I’m necessarily right, but as a techie I know we love tabs. We love them in loads of things, but for me sometimes from a UX point of view I flipping hate them. They obscure and hide data, and if that data is important then it should appear “flat” and “inline” with the rest of the other content. I get using tabs to seperate data that might not be overly pleasing or important to look at immediately (such as DiscID’s or aliases) but a page certainly looks more “full” when things are left to run flat.
