OK Ive really been trying to hold my tongue and not complain, but Im sorry I just have to vent a bit. Sorry if this upsets anyone.
So we were all having problems with this site, slow to load, sometimes did not load at all, sometimes posts would double. We were given some hope the admins were aware of the problems, then the other day we get a notice that the site will be down a few hours and new software would give us not only relief to the known problems, but new features and function.
We patiently wait, about 6 hours past the original down estimate.
We come back to the board, during a time that many of us really need this form of communication to help us get thru these very tough times, and what do we find?
A board that is worse than before, has a whole slew of new problems and frankly, so far I see absolutely NO new features, just the same old stuff that doesnt work, and MORE stuff that doesnt work. All of our content is gone, our emails are gone, are pictures are gone, our friend lists are gone, and the site is STILL slow a molasses to log into to.
I cant believe an organization as big and respected as the ACS would have such poor programming staff to release this new board, with soooo many errors and issues. I do web programming and web development for a living, and if I did this to a client, Id be FIRED!
It also makes me wonder why they planned this upgrade (using that term VERY loosely) right on the crest of a holiday weekend. It would have made more sence to wait till after the new year, when everyone can relax, and maybe the programmers werent drunk on eggnog (sorry, )
Im very sad and dissapointed, having looked forward to new and improved, got new and worse :(
