First off....let me preface this by saying Thank You for trying to put together a cool board. I think there is a lot of potential here. Im sure you guys have worked very hard on it, and as evidenced by this thread, its clear you are continuing to work at making it better for all of us.
As far as the Boards actual perfomance?
IN a word this board is Broken.
Im sorry...I just cant think of any other way to describe it. Its not just slow.....its obscenely slow. Slow would be one thing...but more often than not I could not even log on. Ive been trying on and off all morning....thinking maybe it was just a temporary glitch. I have gotten so many differnt error msgs ive lost track. I thought maybe it was my computer...but every other site I go to works fine.
I actually posted a msg on Furthur's facebook page a while ago...(because I couldnt log on here)....giving a review of the site. I try to be positive, and like I said Im sure you guys are doing everything you can...but this just isnt working very well.
The other major problem which other people have spoken about was the taking down of the Philzone. We are compelled to use this board, which some people see as a bit heavy-handed (I didnt really have a problem with it)....but at the very least if you are going to compel people to use something......it should at least be functioning prior to that action.
Some prior notice would have been cool too. Just a heads up. You have some of the most loyal fans in all of the World....We will follow you guys anywhere....and I think most of us consistently give you guys the benefit of the doubt...but the way this whole thing went down was a little shaky at best. I think people are kinda confused...and starting to get frustrated....(I guess I shouldnt speak for others)....so I guess I just leave it at thats how I feel.
I cant emphasize enought that I respect what you guys are trying to do here. But maybe in the meantime...until all (or most) of the bugs are worked out....maybe someone could get the Philzone back up and running?
Ok.... Thanks agian....Any insight, or help you could offer would be great. Peace! See you in NYC on Tues!
