a dis "heads have got to roll" campaign
with the implementation of the new layout. Everyone said they'd be fucked when Mike Diver left. DiS denied it. Think of how much he's spaffed up the wall on shit features; other administrators of one of the 'big four' music websites would've been gone by now but for some reason he's untouchable. I think it's time for a mid-table website like Clash to start pushing for the fourth spot during this time of weakness. Admittedly, at board-level, being owned by a clueless American that doesn't know anything about music doesn't help, but tom__'s code choices are frequently dubious, and his tendency to deploy Ruby is baffling. There's no real strength in depth.
If tom__ had decided to change back to PHP then I'd imagine the job would have been much worse.
but if it's as messy and bad as we've been led to believe, then in retrospect a complete rebuild from scratch may not have been such a bad thing. There comes a point when you're patching up things so much that it's impossible to see what's going on.
whereas this was mostly a gradual rebuild over time. I don't know, really. As many things probably shouldn't have broken as they did. I don't think it could have been forseen that it would happen. Having used Ruby I pretty much hate it.
......doubtless on a salary of £200,000+, I really would expect more!
when we start paying for this site.
never interact with the rest of the site yet, somehow think they own it.
Yes, the site has had problems for a long time and if it gets too bad I'll stop using it. I'm not deluded into thinking I can call the shots on a private project owned by someone THAT ISN'T YOU
IT'S A JOKE. LAUGH YOU FUCKERS.
maybe it's a deliberate ploy to kill the social board.
cos it seems to work fine for me, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Anyway I'm going to continue using the site. If you're not happy with it as someone mentioned on here a few days cancel your subscription demand your money back and go elsewhere. Maybe even make a complaint to Watchdog if you feel that ripped off
loads of things wrong and too much web 2.0 nonsense shoehorned in all over the place, but i've not really had a problem with reading/posting on the boards. The speeds seem OK too.
