A lovely group for all those who enjoy, create or develop according to metro design language or to other similar modern concepts.

Our aim is to connect all the interested users out there and to collect the finest deviations in order to become the ultimate dA destination when comes to Modern design.

Our design principles are:

Clean, Light, Open and Fast. Metro takes an approach that its called "Fierce Reduction" to remove any elements in the UI that are felt as unnecessary: both visual elements and feature bloat. It allows us to shine a focus on the primary tasks of the UI, and makes the UI feel smart, open, fast, and responsive.
Alive in Motion. The transitions between screens in a UI are as important the design of the screens themselves. Motion gives character to a UI, but also communicates the navigation system, which helps to improve usability.
Celebrate Typography. Our design inspiration is very typographic, and it felt like it was time for User Interfaces to be uncompromising about type as well. Type is information, type is beautiful.
Content, Not Chrome. Its the content on the screen that people want, not the buttons. Reducing the visuals that arent content will help you create a more open UI, and it also promotes direct interaction with the content.
Authentically Digital. Finally, we believe in honesty in design. A user interface is created of pixels, so in Metro we try to avoid using the skeumorphic shading and glossiness used in some UI’s that try to mimic real world materials and objects.

Join requests are automatically approved.
As you probably  heard the Windows Uservoice Forum will be shoutdown on November 16. In the meantime it will be still accessible, though the voting and comments are disabled.

Microsoft advice us to use the Feedback App instead. The tricky issue with it is that its kinda localised based on your keyboard language so if you want to see the gross of the suggestions you should first switch your keyboard language to English US. Also make sure "My build", "My Feedback"or other sorting option are not checked.

Ive found some interesting suggestions for both functionality and design that I think most of members of this group would agree with and vote upon. Ive even submited my own ones (those marked with the *).

Some are very popular but some are not, some are old, others recent so  you may not find them instantly using the search box and you might need to scroll.  They should be searched in the specified category/subcategory using the exact phrases or word Ive listed them here  and the results should be ordered  by Upvotes if not specified otherwise (like either Most recent or Trending). For most of them youll not find the exact text (Ive couldnt listed the whole or exact text here) but I trust youll identify the idea. It seems there is no voting limit so you can upvote many others that you find similar.
