Okay. Tell Jeff not to piss on the people who paid for a service that is now unusable.

I think thats a huge part of the problem, and *still* no one is doing damage control.

*shrugs* This makes no sense to me

That's just Jeff, he's a much nicer guy in person than over the web. Ignore him.

Mike and PattonX are working on it even as we speak, so there *is* "damage control" (inappropriate term) going on and they are looking at constructive criticism and feedback.

I just don't care for the whiners that yell "THIS SUCKS!" and do nothing about it. Mike takes this very, very seriously and works harder than you could imagine to make it as perfect as possible.

If you have nothing to add beyond just "this sucks", then stop bitchin.

And, BTW, I've been there a very, very long time, so I know how it *was*.

You misunderstood me.

The "Damage Control" that I felt needed to be done was in regards to the attitude of the unnamed mod, and Jeff.

I'm not (and you can read back over any of my posts) one of the "This is just stupid, it sucks, change it back" posters.

My beef is specific, focused, and easily resolvable with a post from Drew, or anyone else who wants to come in and apologize for the way the *paying* users of Fark were treated. (In regards to comments by Jeff and said Moderator)

As far as the structural changes go, I like what I am seeing so far today, and Mike has always been good about responding to feedback.

I wouldn't send money, piggie food and bedding, and my compliments on work done in the past if I didn't.

Jeff's out on his ass.
Moderator tried to handle it with humor and failed.

And so we're all on the same page - that wasn't me posting as Moderator.
I always sign my work.

:D

There shall be no pissing from me. But can I still please point and laugh at all the flouncing going on over there?

And maybe I'm just too easygoing or something, but I didn't find anything really wrong with what Jeff said. Everyone got over the last layout change. Or maybe it's just my slightly twisted sense of humour, because I got a good laugh out of the reactions to it.

I am glad that I am not the only person that found it slightly comical.

Me three. It was a fascinating little bit of hysteria there. They were all feeding on each other. I wonder how many of them woke up today, shook themselves, and said "what did I say? and WHYYYYY?"

It's actually not at all funny if you know the back end of it. It got dealt with.

There was rather a lot wrong with it when you consider how many TF subscriptions he cost us and how all the extra comments from the resulting flamewar contributed to the slow performance problem. Pouring gasoline on a fire... not smart.

He is going to get a kick in the nuts if I see him again.

What a bummer.
