Discussion on: Becoming a sustaining member of is not optimal

I believe it was in the book called "Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability" that I read a phrase that goes like:

"Everyone has the ability to say when something is well designed or not, but not everyone knows how to actually come up with one."

With this in mind, I do agree with your statements about how hard it can be to go through the process of becoming a Sustaining Member. But there are things to consider when you put something "Front and centre. Big call to action button". Like how would that affect someone who just came across this website for the very first time? this would probably hurt their user experience because some people have really high standards with their first impressions.

So, I think a better approach would be to come up with something like a really bad drawing mockup made by hand, screenshots of where do you think things could be placed, etc. That would have way more power than a "harsh" post.

Good. Nope. Maybe. Good idea. Was it?
