Anyone else still fed up with the "new" WB site?

The fact that comments are showing up in completely random fucking order and every post claims it is from “7 hours ago” is starting to piss me right the fuck off. You’re right; this is actually embarrassing. it’s a bloody disaster and I’m shocked that simple glitches are still RIDDLING the entire site and don’t seem to be getting fixed. I hate it.

How long has it been since the new website started, a week or so now?

 

This is just awful!

 

Surely they can straighten out this mess within the next week or two, don’t you all think? 

 

I feel awful for the people who are responsible for this because I am pretty sure they had the best intentions, and probably worked hard on it. But this is a train wreck!

Whats frustrating me is the OP post seems to be coming up second and one of the comments first! Opening the page and reading the first post im like eh what the fuck!Also the white,seriously why is that still here! The box around the OP updates….hello how much longer to wait for that? oh and the ‘return to thread’ thingy where it just takes you back to the post and you have to search for the comment to you.

When all that is sorted i may log in more than once/twice a day. Its meant to be more ‘user friendly’….erm big fail!

tried to comment on this, and then all of the boards just…crashed. What I originally posted was that I found it to be terribly funny that this post just proves how jacked this whole site is right now. The first comment isn’t even OP’s. BUT…now the funny part is the whole thing crashing when I was complaining. 

But this white. Dear God. And, damnit, I just want to see who is the last person to comment on a thread!

I still think we can all get used to the new format. I hate it when the defense someone offers is that change is difficult. I call BS on that one since most of us deal wuth change every single day of our life.

The things that bugs me the most are not the “bugs”. These are expected and will be fixed.

What annoys me the most is that someone gave the go ahead to launch the new platform with so many features missing- features that Bees had asked for and waited for, for years on the old site.  Things like a direct link to the post when you get a message- not having to scroll through several pages to find it; the OP’s responses being outlined; the ability to go from one sub board to another without going back to the Home Board page; having the Board identified in the thread title so we can avoid the ones we know we won’t be interested in, etc.

As I said, these aren’t bugs; they are consicous choices which were approved by someone in authority. The revamp was launched with no explanation that these things had been deemed not worthy of inclusion, there was no warning to the users. Even when the complaints started rolling in, there was very little response or feedback from the owners. One update on the 6th, then nothing till the 11th. The Mods were responding to almost none of the support requests.

Hopefully they have learned from this mess, and any future changes will be better managed, because this one was abysmal.

My biggest problems are the drop down menu, its just such a hassle. And I hate that we cant copy and paste into the reply box. Also, whenever I put a link in here, it puts it at the top of the message, not the bottom. So I have to put my links in first and then write whatever it is that I’m going to write. Very annoying!

I’m still annoyed with all the bugs, with all the conscious decisions that make the new WB a total downgrade, and that there has been little response from the mods/admin about the backlash and concerns. Also, I’m irritated that very few of the issues on the Support boards have been responded to.

I’m annoyed by the notice at the bottom of a poster’s post when they modify it. Double avatar attack every time.

Agree with all of you. The new and “improved” Weddingbee went live way before it was ready. I work in a hospital which went live with an electronic charting system before it was ready and it took two years to get all the bugs out. What a nightmare.
