    Knocked it straight out the ballpark.

    Also, while "making stuff pretty" isn't all we do, it is part of what we do. This whole knee-jerk towards visuals just because UX is important is a bit over-the-top for me.

    Having said that, I think people on Dribbble could do with some more interesting opinions. "OMG AWESOME" is only fun every once in a while, and tastes better in between some "[...] could be improved" and "Have you tried [...]".

      YES. If Dribbble is a good place to view pretty things or discuss techniques for making stuff pretty, then it still has a good purpose.
