    Suggestion

    Bring in 10 users of the site and have them sit with the system, the mods and the people who built the system and let them show you what needs to be done. IMHO the site is very user unfriendly

    LOVE my  Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.

    Jim: I am thinking that this site is not a cash cow for the owner and operator.  It is actually user friendly and most likely one of the few remaining of its kind.

    The pop up ads on the political forum are annoying.  Even when I hit the close button, they open.

    Switching the latest site problems issue to this thread (instead of the moderator thread).

    i normally use Firefox at work.  the past couple of days (including now) the following occurs:

    • only half the time the site will load up.  the other half it says my backend is unhealthy
    • when the site does load up i am able to click on threads and read them
    • when i go into a thread the <br> issue is in the reply box and wont allow me to post
    • when i go into a thread my avatar icon on the top right of the page switches from my smexxxy sox girl pic to blank white and can no longer click on it to go to profile or member center
    • i am currently on the site via IE and it seems i can post

    I've also noticed it's running slower than molasses for the last couple of days.

    I also run Firefox.

    Copied from the Mods thread

    There are certain threads (and ONLY certain threads) that I'm unable to open. The Vazquesz thread is one of them. When I try to open them I get the message,

    "The requested URL "http://boston.com/community/forums/sports/red-sox/on-the-front-burner/vasquez/100/7202528";; cannot be found or is not available. Please check the spelling or try again later."

    This is apparently generated by Yahoo because it has the Yahoo logo attached to it - and Yahoo isn't even my browser!

    ..although I DO have to admit that posting something here feels like the proverbial tree falling in the forest.

    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    And I have never posted here under any other names.

    I notice that every time I add a post, I get lost in the thread. It doesn't put me back where I was so it's hard to read.

    I will send another email to the management of Boston.Com because I am not sure they read this thread. I know Teresa read it when she was in charge. If there is a response I will let you all know. Sorry for the issues. That's the best I can do.

    They are conducting a survey with BDC right now. I was asked to do it and I mentioned a number of things that were said on this thread.

    They are testing a newer site and getting opinions on it as well as moderator related questions. I like the format we have now and wasnt impressed with the new site they MIGHT use if the survey suggests  they should.

    OK, so that makes one member here who says they've gotten a survey.

    Awesome!

    Where did you get this survey?   I would like to complete it.

    Who can I contact to voice my opinions?

    Responding in these threads is accomplishing nothing.

    You are one of the more knowledgeable and reasonable posters and you seem eager to give constructive input.

    I think that disqualifies you. LOL

    Re: Issues for BDC

    Good morning all. First, a comment about the survey. I also was selected to complete the survey. Its not something you can sign up for: you have to be selected to complete it. It had nothing to do with me being a moderator here, at least that is my understanding, but rather it had to do with the volume of garbage I write here under my other screen name and the length of time I have been writing it. They are interviewing just five people to start with. I was sworn to secrecy about the proposed changes to the forum, so I can't get into detail about it. I was told the interview (which was conducted by a virtual meeting) would take 30m; it took an hour. While I promised to keep the nature of the changes they are considering confidential, I think its not a breach of confidentiality to state that I felt, overall, that one option that should be considered is fixing this forum rather than instituting wholesale changes to it.

    Also, in response to the concerns of some posters who have not been able to post here over the past few days, I emailed Adrienne and received the following prompt and informative response. Please help me out by providing examples of the persistent problems with the formatting issue when the edit button is used (ie the "sea of white") so that I can forward to her the link as an example.

    Here is her response to my email:

    "Thank you for notifying us. We will get started on this new issue today. As for the formatting issue, I have been told several times by our development team that it has been fixed, but it seems to keep popping back up. Could you send me a screen shot of the issue as it stands now? Has anything changed about when/where the issue occurs?


    Unfortunately with software, sometimes these little things take a long time time to nail down, because they're buried in mountains of code. Think of it like trying to find a loose screw within our entire printing press that's causing random black streaks on our paper edition. Now, imagine that the person who's task is to find the loose screw also has to fix our heating system before we boil to death in our office, and you have a pretty good idea of the workload of our developers.


    So, any help (screenshots, detailed explanations) of the persistent issue that you might have would be incredibly helpful. I will also make a point to be more diligent about looking at the "Issues" section to be sure we are serving our loyal users to the best of our ability. Thanks again for all your help!"

    5 people?

    There's a comprehensive survey for you.

     Love the "loose screw in the printing press" analogy.

    Does it take them 6 months to fix that too?

    Somehow, I doubt it.

     

    I love the smell of asphalt in the morning.

    I finally figured it out.   Everyone on this thread, maybe on the whole board, is a character in a Kafka novel, so we have secrecy, anonymity,  and unknown controllers.  Is it possible that we are not real , at worst, or just pawns in a game, at best ? Seems creepy to me.
