Your Own Worst Enemy?Ep, even though you don't seem to realize it, you have become your own worst enemy.
You are.... day by day.....step by step....."improvement" by "improvement"..... ruining this site.
Older members are now reaching the point of real dismay or anger at how dysfunctional the site has become because we remember when it was easy, appealing, and fun.
New members are just plain boggled by the complexity of it all.
The activity feed is a mess and is just about useless for real time interaction on stories.
We are now robbed of even the pleasure of seeing the rating on our own comments.
The story page on friend's profiles is now a nightmare. One huge story and a small endless scroll of stories written by the member---almost impossible to search.
The little box to write whiteboard comments is a total joke.
Previews of comments and question answers no longer appear anywhere like they used to when we clicked on "more".
Gestures and gifts clog up the whiteboard and the only benefit I can fathom is to allow curious third parties to see at a glance what is going on between other members.
The reply function has made it impossible to follow story comments by others without continually checking a story. This is because only the writer of the reply and the writer of the original comment know it exists, in case you don't see why. This alone has served to curtail interactions on stories by a huge amount.
We can no longer look on our own story page to see who rated up our stories.
Even the page used to compose stories has become confusing, unnecessarily complicated, and doesn't work right. It took me several tries to write this story.
The list could go on and on.
You don't use this site the way members do, and you don't seem to understand what we want at all.
You are wearing me out with these senseless changes that you call improvements.
