rrrepo – at first glance it looked me like a checklist site and then I understood it is a repository of links. I tried to register, explore and create a site and I think they have many usability issues, some issue for example –
- After registering I expected to get some mail confirming my registration and to automatically log into the site. It was unclear how to log into the site.
- Wanted to create a repo in the name which already exists, wanted to navigate to it but I was redircted to somewhere else.
- Exploring new repositories is not very clear.
- Privacy settings.
- When logged in, user is redirected to the news feed and cannot visit the home page or log out.
