Blimey it's out of beta!
« on: September 02, 2009, 04:46:42 PM »
Just been across and to the other site to see how quite it was and noticed a lot of new topic areas within the forum section. I then remover "beta" from the url and it seems the site is up any running - not that I'm in any way suggesting we all move over there - I'm more than happy here!

Yep. It seems they've decided it's working.

So much for error testing and the alleged fixes.

Nice of them to tell me its gone live.  If it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have known.  ::)

Tried helping them out for over two years, and they can't even be bothered to tell me.

I'm stunned. None of the main bugs on their list are fixed as far as I can see (pictures look better but still not as good as here or any other site, you still see different pictures in the galleries depending on whether you are logged in or not, videos still don't work if you are using Firefox with Adblocker). No announcement or explanation for the change on the main site. And they didn't even tell Mick! Bizarre.  :o

I believe that's what's known as a soft launch.

I believe the people who decided not to tell the mods are known as tossers.

Looks to me like they've spent an inordinate amount of time and effort in a vain attempt to polish a turd!
Even the forum looks the same!
S*d 'em I say!

Just popped on to have a look.

There's an awful lot of negativity on their forums... not a good start for those new members on their 1st visit.

Sorry to hear that Craig.  What version of safari are you using?   I believe Jonathan had some problems with a earlier version.   Also, what are the errors you are getting please?

To be honest I've had enough now.  They can stick it.  :tup:
