Why I Retired the Advertising Y!DSK Library File (Advertising_Y!DSK.rplib)?
Naming conventions are important when rapid prototyping. I have hundreds of widgets in my Axure widgets library and don’t like to hunt for elements. That is why I decided to reorganize and renamed the old Advertising Axure Library File.
For example I prefer the name Full Banner instead of just Banner for the 468 x 60 full banner ad unit. I prefer the name skyscraper for the 120 x 600 ad unit as opposed to just sky. I prefer the name wide skyscraper as opposed to wide sky for the 160 x 600 ad unit. I prefer the name vertical rectangle as opposed to just vrec for the 240 x 400 ad unit. I prefer the name Large Rectangle instead of LREC 336 x 280 ad unit. I prefer the name rectangle for as opposed to rec for the 180 x 150 ad unit. I prefer the “3:1 Rectangle” as opposed to “3:1 Rec” for the 300 x 100 ad unit.
This was a simple change of course, but I kept putting it off and procrastinating. Oh yeah, I couldn’t stand the capital letters and also the Bolded 12 pixel font size that labeled the old banners as well. Finally I decided to do something to ease the frustration a little bit. Call me picky, but they banners aren’t as LOUD now and their easy for me to find J. You might be asking, “Can I still search the word “sky” since I renamed it skyscraper?” YUP!
