As I believe was pointed out in other comments, I think Alice Hill no longer has any association with Slashdot. In other words, she's an early adopter of "FUCK BETA". >:(
I come to
/. for the comments, but with the new Beta, I can't even see anything! It just says:
''Shazbot! We ran into some trouble getting the comments. Try again... na-nu, na-nu!
It seems like the "developers" need to take some advice from people who actually know what they are doing. I'm happy to help explain what graceful degradation means if they like...
The Fine Print: The following comments are owned by whoever posted them. We are not responsible for them in any way.
But your Beta abomination is the cause of most of the comments now. >:(
I think you want honest feedback as much as NCsoft wanted to hear from the City of Heroes community after they announced in 2012 August that CIty of Heroes was being shut down at the end of 2012 November. As in you aren't paying any attention at all.
Well, NCsoft sowed the wind and now they're reaping the whirlwind. Their sales are in decline. And the City of Heroes community is supporting the coming game City of Titans. Without lies and bullshit corporate politics. The same will happen to Slashdot.
I know by now there's too much face behind this change and Slashdot Beta will roll out irregardless. And what you will get in response.
Be seeing you.
