I hope you're right. But I sure didn't see it before. I even did a search, expanded out every sub-thread--nothing.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You can't even see it if you expand out the "Why?" thread all the way. Here.
That's a good idea.
Quite a bit of constructive criticism has been offered (not just in the last two days, but for months now). The exact complaints are pretty damned clear at this point. The problem isn't that they aren't aware of the problems with the beta. The problem is that they've not been corrected, and now they're going to force the beta on us.
You can't. The comment list is suddenly broken now too. I can only look at about the last 20 or so posts (the list end abruptly and there is no longer an option to go to the next page). But I looked back through the articles from this morning and can tell you that several of my posts that I know were there are suddenly gone.
The comment listing is broken now too (only shows one page, with no "Next" option). And it looks like the editors are trying to delete posts and downmod all the beta posters. Guess they found the time to do all that in between listening to us and changing the beta based on our valued input.
No, but Timothy has PROMISED that they'll listen to us, the audience, and CONSIDER our recommendations. Honest injun. Pinkie swear!
They're also actually deleting posts now too. Quite a few of mine have disappeared. Amazing that they have time for this, what with all the effort they're putting into listening to us and modifying the beta accordingly.
Maybe Taco could buy if back on the cheap.
The fast majority of the F*ck Beta comments are coming from ACs. For all we know that could be a single individual or even a bot.
No, actually, I've been surprised by the number of real posts here against the beta, some of them with some incredibly low UID's. Much as I hate the beta, even I never expected such an overwhelming response (and, believe me, I've been around here a lot longer than my UID would indicate).
Beta makes Taco cry.
You know, it's amazing that they have time to downmod all these beta threads, while frantically listening to us (the audience) and working to implement our valued suggestions all at the same time. Dice employees are such incredible multi-taskers.
Exactly. I have tried the beta out for months (checking it out from time to time) and I haven't noticed a single significant change since they put it up.
So tell us, Soulskill, what were those changes you referenced?
That's my biggest complaint. And all this BS about "We have to have our engineers work on it" is a joke. It's ALREADY AVAILABLE IN CLASSIC!! It's not something that requires a lot of work to implement, because the functionally is ALREADY THERE! They clearly made a conscious decision to remove it and now, despite months of complaints about it, still absolutely refuse to put this functionality back in the beta version.
