    This is what happens when you hire Clown College dropouts to write programs for your site.

    So, John Henry now owns the Globe & BDC.   


    He pledged to keep BDC free as long as he owns it.


    Based on this week, it's worth every penny.

    Whoever was hired to handle this needs to be fired! Im sure theres a few people that post on here that can do a much better job of creating a FRIENDLY forum site!

    They redid everything and it came out...worse!


    Fix the quote box issues?  No.


    Fix the photo upload?  No.


    Rusty Trombone blocked forever?  No.


    Instead, we have longer posts with nothing in them and the "cleaner" look which removes dividing lines and contrasting colors...making it difficult to easily recognize where one post stops and the next one starts.

    "They redid everything and it came out...worse!"


     


    Not a Shot, just a clarification: the reason for these forum changes was due to a technical back end split with Boston Globe. 


     


    I don't have any insight into this project but in the past in situations I've seen sometimes these are not necessarily "design improvement" jobs but fairly urgent cutovers with a very strict time frame. The focus is on basic technical and domain transition. 


     


    The goal in these cases is usually to try to keep things functioning as well as possible but not really to improve everything. I do think there was some work to make the overall boston.com site more mobile-friendly. 


     


    But from this point forward it will be interesting as the forums do give Boston.com an advantage if they can use them to their advantage. So it's possible we will see improvements going forward over time. But, time will tell.


    p.s. one interesting thing they did before the cutover was to appoint two moderators to the Red Sox forum that are long term participants. The irony is that the Sox forum, aside from one rogue nutjob, has been pretty troll free this last year. 


    Whereas the Pats forums has long time unwanted trolls from other teams, in particular the relentless mockery of "Meadowland Mike" comes to mind. The Pats forum needs community moderators way more than the Sox forum did.

    Forum changes always take time. Anything over two weeks though will be a bad sign.
