How do you feel about skeuomorphs? (Rolling)


#1

Against them in principle? Love 'em?

Argue passionately about them here.

Apparently the textured ridge design on the outside of a walnut whip is a skeuomorph. Only marckee knew that previously.


#2

I prefer them


#3

I found out long ago, it’s a long way down the holiday road so you might as well travel in the comfort and luxury of a skeuomorph.


#4

I like them.
I don’t like when people lie with stuff like “my child asked why I had a big version of the save button :laughing:


#5

Broadly against


#6

they’re vile


#7

Big fan of the camera shutter noise still being used on smartphones, a decade after any 16 year old would know what a film cannister was. So unnessesary.


#8

gotta make stuff look like something haven’t you


#9

Very much in favour of them.
