About a year or two ago I was dealing with some personal issues and a friend shared this quote with me:
I only say it because I think you're right about a lot of the technical issues, but this thread really isn't the place for it. And I think it hurts to mention it in a bunch of places in secession, because it will only annoy others.
Not to mention make it harder for people to be on your side. However, I think content is very important for the site. I think it's great that you do things like sigs or other graphics or your gallery. I think it's great we have a CR section, too.
We could continue to bitch about this not being fixed or like Skyrim, but after I left this place numerous times over the years, I think the content this place has compared to years ago is so much better. I guess appreciate what we have, not what isn't there.
I'm not saying stop trying to see things get fixed, but at this point we know those things are very hard to come by.
Also I have to say that F34R was completely right about the things he told me about this place. I also understand why he isnt here anymore.
Im sorry for interrupting the project discussion, please go on. I wont post anything concerned with technical issues in this thread anymore.
i agree with cybertox
fix whats broken first then get new stuff
my car broke down yesterday, needs engine tune up,oil change etc, but i'll just fit shiny new wheels on it and drive around as normal
thats what going on here
yeah, but only the wheels will get you pussy! :snicker
well never forget, the man from OZ always knows how to pick right bunch of weirdo's
No, what's going on here is rather than lull around and wait for ALL tech issues to be resolved, I am still actively trying to get new stuff added. If we didn't continuously strive to add new things, the place would get stale and people would STILL bitch and moan about how things never evolve. Ass staff, we lose either way, so why should we stop doing other things? Site tech issues are the management/site programmers issues, which does NOT just mean the forums. A lot of people here think that PSU = forums only because that is their world. It doesn't. They have the homepage and all content there to manage as well. It is a large site, a large amount of maintaining goes on. Do the repairs and such happen as fast as I would like? Nope.. but I am not one to come in and constantly bemoan the situation.
I hate to sound like this, but I am so SO tired of the same droll coming from the same individuals. Do you really think that we do not know what the site issues are? Do you really think that they aren't being addressed in a manner that is working around their time frame? While they scurry about and try to get stuff done, I am going to keep working on my end. The forumRPG has nothing to do with site issues, it won't hurt it, won't cause a crash, none of that. What it MIGHT do is cause some people to start having a little more fun on the forums and THAT is what the forums are for. Too many serious people here that ALL they do is nitpick the place to death. If people focused as much on making forums lively and engaging as they do about whining, then we'd be better off as a discussion forum.
The feedback tab that most of you disable, is there for a reason. Submit your feedback about forum features there and it goes AUTOMATICALLY into the queue for the site programmers to address. We don't delete them, or ignore it. We all get an email that the feedback has been submitted, from who, and about what. Odd that we have so MANY site issues, but no emails come through? FYI, the site programmer doesn't get much time to forum lurk, so posting feedback threads doesn't really accomplish what you want to accomplish. Someone still has to enter that info into a feedback. Since there are times when mods/admin are not on the site, it would go much faster if everyone took responsibility to use that FEEDBACK tab and ensure that they problem they are seeing is documented.
For those who are furiously hitting CTRL-C to paste this in a hate email to the site admin, have fun, their email addy's on the staff bio pages. I just wanted to get this off my chest.
