Active Rain two steps forward fifteen steps backwards
Times like this we get the impetus, to explore other options for using as a blogging platform such as WordPress, BlogSpot anything but Active Rain… I cannot express my frustration at how poorly these changes were thought out and implemented.
The Golden Turkey Award should be given to the people who dreamed up these changes, without thinking it through or testing them out. I am sure their Objectives & the Intentions were good, but the results were……. (You can finish my sentence) IS THIS the NEW Trulia Corporate influence??
Why not start it at the beginning of the month so we could gradually get used to the changes not effecting Active Rain Contests etc….
- No Spell Check needs a paragraph to figure out how to compensate
- Virtually impossible to post a picture the picture editor mode is painful.
- Unable to save in draft mode
- Points are not registering for logging in
- Copy & Paste need a paragraph to explain how to use now
- Where do we put local events? The idea of doing local activities is good for AR and business what happened to that idea?
- What happened to Outside Blog???
I could go on and on but I am too exhausted…there are many other things that are not working.
Congratulations Active Rain this tops ALL YOUR IMPROVEMENTS that I have been part of…… Good Night!
Thank you Bob for telling us about Control V other wise this would not have been posted…… and as far as your comment #59 all I can say is Seriously????
This post is meant to be a to the community & the leadership of Active Rain as a wakeup call I am sure I am not the only one who has these thoughts…..
