I have to be frank. But look, in a day and age when software functionality and quality can be attained at a relatively cheap price, I am quite frustrated with this web site. A lot of us migrated here amidst much fanfare and have made the best of things.
However, it is by no means easy to navigate this software and it is highly inefficient. You can't even use standard HTML without strange side effects. And believe me, I am a fairly experienced software engineer and know that these things are not rocket science to implement.
What I do know is that this takes planning and commitment. I have to wonder what kind of planning took place if part timers are cobbling features and functionality now that people are actively using this product? Also, why wasn't standard chat board software used that works right out of the box if there is a resource issue? I have helped put together social web sites in no time, such as soccer chat boards for no money at that.
The icing on the cake is the poor aesthetic quality. It has gotten to the point where I only come here out of loyalty and care for the people I have come to know.
Moreover, I ask again: what about revenue generation here? I have to think that some advertising revenue is generated from this site. Please correct me if I am wrong. If I am correct, can I ask whether or not such money is being used for site development and maintenance?
