What UI design genius decided to put those buttons anywhere remotely close to each other?

The location tells me it's too specific to be a fat finger.

There was one of these at Oakland University back in November. Someone want to explain to me what's going on with campus police in Michigan?

Well, a hail of bullets is severe weather, sorta.

That's some good work there, mall cop rejects.

The MSU Police accidentally sent a message of an active shooter on campus. THERE IS NO ACTIVE SHOOTER ON CAMPUS...THERE IS NO DANGER ON CAMPUS

Well it's good to know there has not been A SHOOTING AT MSU.  I'm sure if they kept tweeting that there was A GUNMAN SHOOTING PEOPLE AT MSU, there'd be a lot of people PANICing about the DANGER ON CAMPUS because sometimes people focus on keywords when reading tweets.

True enough....    "Later tonight, we should see hail, ranging in size from about 1/10 inch to .40 jacketed hollow-point.  Dress warmly, and in Kevlar..."

That's what the shooter WANTS you to THINK.

Last Sunday, The Herald erroneously reported that Dolphin Jimmy Holmes had been an insurance salesman in Raleigh, North Carolina, that he had won the New York lottery in 1982 and lost all his money in a land swindle, that he had been charged with vehicular homicide, but was acquitted because his mother said she drove the car, and that he stated that the funniest thing he ever saw was Flipper spouting water on George Wilson.  Each of the items was erroneous material published inadvertently.  He was not an insurance salesman in Raleigh, he did not win the lottery, neither he nor his mother was charged with vehicular homicide, and he made no comment about Flipper or George Wilson.  The Herald regrets the errors.

I guarantee its a drop down menu.

well frankly, if there *IS* a shooter on campus, do you want the security department to try to remember where that button is, or what application launches that?  a once in 60 year scenario is harder to remember than if you see it when you do the weather thing 10 times a year.
 
2013-05-29 05:40:41 AM
Why not both?
 
2013-05-29 05:48:27 AM
There is no row of "buttons" to be pushed.  Somebody opened a list of templates and clicked on the wrong one.

Maybe some smartass changed the template names.

Hallelujah!!

It's raining men with guns!!

The media is frothing at the mouth for another school shooting so they can spend the next year talking about it, the Nazis in our government are also extremely let down by this turn of events.

Stupid subby! Everything is assault weapons and mass shootings now. There's nothing else. Didn't you hear about the OK mass shooting that leveled an entire town?

Alonjar: I guarantee its a drop down menu.


I read this and laughed, because I thought "Wow- I could whip up an app in Visual Basic in about an hour that would do this. Couple databases for phone numbers and Twitter handles, a drop-down menu listing each emergency... It's a simple concept."

And then I was horrified, because I realized that's most likely exactly what someone did.

Geee, for once, an article that didn't end with a completely unneeded, "No one was injured in the incident."

How is "active shooter on campus" even that easily accesible?

Shouldn't it be in a seperate options icon or whatever? Heck, just have a type in option for that kind of thing, only took me, what 10-15 seconds to type that?

Why do they do that? Are the messages otherwise too long?

Part of me says "Yeah, that would be a horrible feeling to click the wrong drop down menu option." but the other side says "Duh, it's State". I'm glad the kids are ok but I'm sorry for the poor schmuck who has to own up to the mistake.
