If you can't get the comment system right, you don't have the site! If you can't make something better, copy the existing system, and try incremental improvements only! Right now it looks like some Dingus err Disqus jackass rode in to teach us how the real comment system should work. Terrible!
Tried moderating there yet?
What a coincidence, Dice thinks of Slashdot as another sausage coming from their factory, that needs to be turned into another turd
Fixed it for ya!
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Fuck Beta!
Somehow I bet the investment fund will do better job building laptops than Dice keeping Slashdot alive. FUCK BETA!
Let's be honest - at this point you're much better off scrapping this garbage, taking the classic (recoding the classic if you want) and adding only incremental improvements to it.
Right on! It would be a terrible thing to disband this community by curtailing the comment functionalities. The discussions are by far
Sure. But you need a Facebook account to send Netflix any feedback _after_ you've logged into your Netflix account.
Actually...Netflix does quite a lot of research. They are famous as being tireless in their quest to improve every aspect of their business...and while most of those changes are invisible to us there are still plenty that are quite apparent.
Remember back many years ago,when the return envelopes started showing up with the window cut-outs so that the bar code of the DVD could be scanned from the outside?
Yes, I remember. That was a looong time ago. And ever since they stopped being an underdog and hopped onto the corporate "A" list things have been going steadily downhill. The menu is utter shit! It mixes in movies I watched, it mixes in TV series with movies, it doesn't show anything (like star rating) but big dumb pictures, it fakes the star rating to feed me some crap I they just bought, etc.. It's as if they're trying to make it difficult to find something on purpose. Just tried to find something to watch yesterday. Wasted 20 minutes, walked away with a headache. And it didn't used to be this way - the interface was informative, you could sort by ratings, you could see what your friends rated and watched. I also think there were movies. That went out of the window, though now there's an annoying bar inviting me to share info with friends. Of course I need to sign in with a facebook account to do so.
Which brings me to my final point. What kind of a half-assed company requires a third party sign in to provide customer feedback?! I don't have a facebook account, and so I can't even send Netflix a message explaining how much they're messing up. The only way I can send a message is leave.
But it's not like they'd read it anyway - evidently they're too busy enjoying their "A"-list corporate circlejerk.
That's because you have a populace that gives a shit.
Agree. In fact, I really wish Snowden has limited his revelations to domestic programs. The foreign intelligence is the direct mission of the NSA, and while they might've done too much in some cases you can hardly blame them for being successful at it.
She's 80, and her current term doesn't run out until 2016. So she probably couldn't care less as to how the public opinion swings by these types of coverup attempts.
Why exactly do they get to have a say in this? Why are we even listening to them?
Feinstein and Rogers are the two key figures responsible for most of these violations in the first place. They are the ones who tacitly sanctioned wholesale violation of the constitutional right against unreasonable searches. Yet their opinion on Snowden's guilt is somehow all over the news. It's amazing that the press is quoting Rogers' preaches on how Snowden has broken the law and needs to be persecuted, when both of these bozos voted to grant retroactive immunity for warrantless wiretaps they've sanctioned under earlier administration. As far as I am concerned, asking for their opinion is like asking a robber on what to do with a good Samaritan who stopped the robbery.
Sure, but my point is that they had a chance to add two top-level domains in cyrillic and they chose to transliterate two english words.
