We have tickets for an event @ UNC this weekend.
I went online looking for a map to the building.
I find this page (look right).
I click the link indicated to pop-up the map.
And it's horrible. It's little, it's square, it provides no context. So I think, "aha! it's just that no-resize pop-up code. If I save the image, I will see the whole thing."
The content owner (I'm guessing there some sort of system where one person did the pop-up code and someone else reused it, basically b/c I can't see making a non-fitting non-scrolling window for any other reason) cropped the map down so it would fit better into the little pop-up window!
This is the point where, as a designer, I want to start beating my head on the desk.
So, they couldn't get the map to show the right part in the tiny window, so instead of getting a better window or a full page... they just cropped the map down until the one building they needed would actually be seen.
Oh. My. God.
Please stop the insanity!
