Why oh why oh why
Not sure what I'm protesting about but I feel strongly about it goddamnit.
Are replies working yet?
I think it was stolen by Bad Gateway.
the boards didn't actually need any tweaking at all. They worked fine as they were for years! Years!
I've logged back in!
I'm on slightly less than minimum wage an hour
do i need a ticket?
Have you never used Google? Those guys don't even have any first-party content!
keep the users down by confusing the shit out of them on the log in page
with the Charlton online ticket office.
I'm on my way.
and it's not everyone on here
is the kind of 'entitled' attitude i swear people here seem to have. it's like the dis website exists to serve them and when it doesn't work they just bitch and bitch and bitch. why? is that all there is to talk about? do you think it's going to make dis fixed any faster? no, of course it's not. i'm sorry that people don't like others saying "if you don't like it go somewhere else" but really, do! or at least, send one discreet pm to sean or tom__ saying what's up. clogging up the boards saying "this does not serve me and i am your god, sean/tom" or words to that effect is only going to make you look like a colossal dickslap
in a parallel universe
is your holier than thou defender of the DiS attitude.
i'm not defending the dis attitude per say
i'm just saying getting really immature complaining about it in a mardy way isn't going to do any good
anyway, i would've thought with your prior dealings with this place no-one could accuse you of keeping emotionally detatched when there's a feature to slag off, eh?
every time something big changes, lots of users say 'oh no!!! it's terrible! i liked it before!'
and every time something tiny changes, like the addition of some admittedly world-shaking blue dots, lots of users say 'oh no!!! it's terrible! i liked it before!', or equally helpfully, 'why did you bother?'
same reactions and collective derision, every time. it is fucking dull after a few years. and if i was programming/designing/coding/WHATEVER for DiS, i would probably think, 'you're right. why do i bother?' on a regular basis.
I've seen plenty of redesigns, relaunches, new features etc on this site. But I've never come across such a sustained period where it's so hard to log in, stay logged in, log out, post, post once only instead of multiple posting, access the site at all, etc etc.
Maybe if we were given some idea of the timeframe/implementation plan it would do a little to ease the frustration?
Whilst I appreciate all the efforts to upgrade this site I think you're in real
danger of trying to polish a turd. IMO it would be better to make sure the existing functions such as being able to stay logged in work ok before you start adding other, somewhat pointless, features.

is a good attitude to have, and makes the person writing look frustrated, but mature enough to be appreciative of the effort
All they've done for me is fuck up the board.
Well done, another great new idea that's been put up before it's ready.

just makes the poster look like an entitled cockmunch
WAS A GOOD ATTITUDE TO HAVE

but that points deduction for going into administration has doomed them
but CG's is naughty.
but we don't like change
If the answer is 'corporate sponsors', then that merely deflects the direction of my wrath.
i didn't say "no-one complain, ever", just that endlessly bitching on the boards and - presumably - not sending the odd to sean or tom__ eloquently stating what's up is a really really cockish way to go because it's just designed to try and convey an image onto the boards above anything else
You've got a point then. No need to be rude about things. I'm just frustrated about the website I like to fritter away most of my free time on seeming to become harder and harder to use.
All we need is just a little patience?
they were such a pointless feature. TOPICAL
and no, of course not.
I agree. There is a definite grey area on the issue of whether you're entitled to complain about things given to you for free.
I think you are, but the quid pro quo is that you should at least be polite about it, which some folk on here aren't.
that's fair enough. but getting bitchy and snide about it again and again AND A-FUCKING-GAIN is just really immature and fucks me off no end
Surely that's his point?
To be fair debugging an application this size is far FAR more time consuming than that blue was to implement. It probably took an extra line comparing something to something else.
If Tom's in there fiddling around why not spend 30 mins doing that when 30 mins isn't going to scratch the surface of the reply bug?
I'm getting sick of these disgusting things you are saying about Arsenal

If there's anything about the site you've got an opinion about, send me a note, I'll take yr suggestions on board and get back to you.
Just a thought.
:D :D :D
I think most people would just like the board to function properly. As in they can log in, post something where they want it to go, and then log out. This isn't meant as a dig at you but I'm pretty sure people have made that particular desire pretty explicitly clear for quite some time.
because he's a bellend, but it is frankly bizarre that instead of fixing the replies/log in/etc then we get given pointless new features that don't even work.
and it's the internet so it's bound to be a bit GAYZ RUINED TEH BORED!!!
and also - to answer brusma - if it is only some people that have the whingey, rude attitude and not all of us as you say... why don't you just politely PM those people individually rather than scream at the whole board?
everyone seems to think they are people of varying levels of opinion spoutingness, and they spout various levels of opinions, and i can't take it anymore!
but if you're boycotting something then I say "RIGHT ON SISTER!"
Time to bask in the warm glow of online validation
got me involved, tht's what it did to me, being involved in toilet antics and bundling joe and kissing sadpunk are one thing, but when your party introduces me to a thread about blue dots, that's just tipped me. that's what your party did to me!
except that zonino is bamos birthday party, not a dis sponsered event, b0ner :P
The fact the replies are fixed is good.
Things are good.
Just get the logging in sorted and we're there.
But I've had a to move to a different PC for work reasons and on IE6
..than the site not working properly.
I just feel sorry for sean and tom, if I was them I wouldn't want to fix the site, after seeing how ungrateful people are. A lot of this isn't exactly constructive.
a complaint stating your annoyance with the level of complaints on the moan forum
DiS has truly surpassed itself
