Go to the rant feed, then the big red plus at the bottom. Actually, viewing one's profile isn't the main view - the rant feed is.
theuser49992yYou are right, but as I can understand, this website is a weekend/side project created by two guys. It does not have a pool of designers and developers working on it.
Bad UX (and anything bad) still happens in 2020 because you may not have the knowhow at your disposal.
Hey love, the maker of the site isn’t the best designer and the guy who helped him also did sloppy.
But the community counts, not the usability, right?
But hey, at least we’re honest and I’m trying to fix that!
@junon Yeah, that should have a label, which would also be consistent with the "Add Comment" button in the rants. Also, the colours should be more consistent (Plus is red, Add Comment is purple, Post is red again).
What's worse however is that these buttons aren't properly debounced. Clicking or tapping them twice performs the action twice. That would be trivial to add in the handler.
C0D4689162yWebsite is a subpar experience, download the appropriate mobile app and enjoy a better* devRant.
*better as in green grass an oceans compared to a swamp.
The Website is just for Social acceptance, DevRant's primary focus is on mobile app, Also, it's better you didn't find post button as you should explore this platform before posting. Many Green Dot Newbies post Cringe content before knowing what the platform is about.
@theabbie "green dot newbies" wonderful way to convince people to use the site.
Also, I'm not downloading another app, I'm actively trying to use my phone less anyway. If this site isn't going to be around much then surely don't see a point in using it.
Also, why are people gatekeeping rants? There's a rant there by itself.
@junon I did not understand your last question, also the "green dot newbie" problem is bigger than it appears, Spend some time here and you'll see how much shitpost happens. We're fun people here, you'll love it.
use this alternate electronjs client if the desktop website seems bad.

Good first rant, Welcome to the community.
@junon We only refer to green dots when it's content is inappropriate. Like with the indian wave and presumably now with the tiktok coders.
++'ed for proper first rant. It's in a rough state as of now, but maybe you'll enjoy my alternative client.
It should streamline web, android and ios.
