The 'Tour' button to the top right of the snow cam images (between the arrows) appears greyed out and can't click. Bug or killed?
Have tried on chrome on both ipad and Mac
Ahh, it's been a while since I used it - I do just normally use the arrows. I thought, or perhaps expected, that the Tour button would be an autoplay/slideshow type approach. Given the incoming system, was going to sit it on my ipad while I worked for a bit. Is it also correct that if on an individual cam it won't autorefresh? need to refresh the page yourself?Most curious that you not interpret the Chevrons as active, Chevrons as a 'next' and 'previous' button has been a UX standard for just as long. Makes me wonder how many others intepret that way .
The Tour is the single most effective UX introduction ever placed on this site - increased snow cam views per visit by almost 300% way back in the when..
s it also correct that if on an individual cam it won't autorefresh? need to refresh the page yourself?
the Tour icon should look less like a button
sit it on my ipad
Yep, I started on the ipad which got me wondering, then went to mac to check it. I relate it to something that in old school HTML is formatted as a link, but the link isn't active. The same question remains for me on desktop as the design makes it look like it should be pressed - the lack of mouseover behaviour just reinforces to me that the lack of link/action is in the website, and not the browser failing to launch. WHen I looked at it again, what also drives an expectation for it to be an action button, is that literally all other icons in that block are - the 3 share buttons and the 2 arrows.Interesting observation, and would be a valid UX iteration - have burned that one into my mind for next version of design.
This is the use-case scenario that changes the read (have looked at it again on my ipad and taken off my mental 'shoes' to fit into yours)
On desktop -> discovery that the word 'Tour' is just label in the middle of a button with two active ends is rapid, there is no mouse-over behavior on Tour whilst there is pointer icon change and active link label with mouseover on both chevrons.
Touch devices don't offer pointer mouseover signals - in which case I can see your point.
