@brookr @philipqnguyen flexbox can work with a grid. None was in place for that design, so implementing one now may not be the fastest path.

I'm looking at your production app on Heroku from my phone (Android). I've got a couple of other projects I'm working on for school. What's your timeframe for making this presentable?

Know you are busy, @bwstud. Is there some guidance you can give on how to approach it? We'll try to find a UX volunteer who can hack on it a bit.

@brookr I think the most glaring problems are the layouts not covering the window on several screens. That's where I would start.

On the landing page fixing the secondary image alignments and either reintroducing some text, or removing that explanatory section entirely would improve the appearance. The white button text is difficult to read when it creeps up into the light portion of the image. Fixing the size of the about match button would be good, too.

The account creation pages look pretty good. The word, "submit" needs to be re-centered vertically in it's button.

When viewing your profile the "other technologies" label should align-right in accordance with the other three fields, and the link to gravatar should flow under the placeholder (and shouldn't appear if you have one).

The user cards are too small for mobile. They need to be enlarged, maybe only show one at a time and provide pagination. Ryan had added a paginated mechanism previously.
That stuff would get you somewhere
I hope it's helpful. Sorry I can't be of more use.

Thanks, that's definitely helpful! We'll see what we can do with it!
