Temporary rollback


As you might have noticed, we had to revert back to the older version of groups and friends network as the software over-powered the 2000 computers that run this site. We will work hard today to address the issues and hopefully upgrade it again as soon as possible. Just the fact that the software was up for many hours means that we are close

Mr. CEO,
I think it would be worth while to develop a BETA test system. It would appear alpha testing is rather poor, and then it goes live, frequently with disasterous side effects. Like winding up logged into someone else's account, possibly a paid one, and with personal info (email addr) readily available?!? I'm sorry, but that's a HUGE legal liability and should be given top priority. Not a good way to run a company in my opinion. These things should be tested better before final release. A dedicated group of member beta testers seems the logical compromise to me.

oh come on Vamp, you know that would require separate servers and would be way too expensive. (you been getting a bad blood supply?)

Never mind keeping our networks private, Keep our personal information that we gave you when we joined the site confidential,or a lot of people are going to pull the plug on this site.I wish to remain positive, but fair dinkim,this is the last straw.

Dear Ron: I told you so. In my opinion, if it takes money to make a seperate mini server farm strictly for test purposes, then dammit, do so. There are plenty of other ways too. But this fiasco with people hopping into others' accounts will wind up being far more costly if it continues. The illegality of it is fairly clear. My blood supply is fine. I have to wonder about luvpump's blood pressure tho. Fix this now.


btw, yet another instance: [group_post 903669]

Yes, what happened is that the page with 30 or so members of a group gets cached every 3 hours - unfortunately, the developer messed up and make it save who the unlucky member was who caused the page to be cached would have his links in the page. We figured it out pretty quickly and updated it.

People. Take a happy pill and chill. We asked him to fix the lag. He came back and said he was going to add bells and whistles. We all like the bells and whistles and he has addressed the lag. These are major changes.

Yep, things got fucked up. But, they are working on it.

You people keep looking for reasons to bitch.

I too believe that a few of you people do need to chill out some , As JustRon9000 said "We asked him to fix the lag. He came back and said he was going to add bells and whistles. We all like the bells and whistles and he has addressed the lag. These are major changes."

Feedback - rollback this is a posting in The Likeminded Ones Group with opinion and suggestions You may want to read it Andrew as food for thought. there are members in LMO that have strong programming backgrounds or knowledge of programming that are willing to help and not asking for anything in return (I am sure within other realms of this site too.)


Andrew replies on 5/19/2006 3:32 am:
Thanks - yes, it was hard to pre-debug the caching bug as the QA team were always logged in as their own accounts and didn't test viewing the page from a second account.

Has any harm come to you Wistful?

Do you think that my account has not been gone in to also? It has by few other members with moderator transfer.

Now tell me where I "criticized" or insulted the site after all the updates and upgrades started.

If I recall Wistful, you went around and posted in groups and the magazine suggesting that premium members strike against the site and cancel their premium services to hurt it financially to get things improved. You know that is really a logical (not) to financially damage any business with knowing it takes money to improve upon a business; furthermore, who was it that was against your proposed member strike in the Rant and Raves before Andrew started his Blog and made it aware that he was going to work on improving the site?

What many members including myself did was circulate a member petition letter asking for improvements; one of the petitions was 3/4 composed by me.

So please get your facts right Wistful. Simple fact is that I been in support of this site in many ways for many years, from letting other members (new) know that this site does work in finding what they may be looking for (Just Sex to LTR's) to being one of the members interviewed by WSJ Online a few months ago.

I might complain about the bugs, but I have never insulted this site, the CEO, programmers or Staff of it.

"Nick, I did not say you insulted the CEO, but the link you provided to your group in this blog does show some thoughtful criticism, instead of the pablum you've posted here."

And just exactly what were my words in my previous 2 postings where I posted the link Wistful?

"Thoughtful Criticism" can produce "constructive" ideas and suggestions.

End of correspondence and all replies with my name attached to postings here

Andrew replies on 5/19/2006 3:34 am:
Thanks - I can take the criticism as the buck stops with me. We are working hard to focus on bug fixes and site improvements. Hopefully the positive improvements here will continue. All feedback is helpful.

My group of The Likeminded Ones was put in denied status at around 3:55am EST and had the following message that only a moderator of the group can read.

"Your group's description has been denied due to the following reason: You included a phone number. Please update your group's description to get it re-reviewed."

In my group description there is no phone numbers (or any contact info such as email addresses) and no postings in my group contains any phone numbers or email addresses.

I have emailed the abuse team in regards to this as it is clear that it is an abuse of the "Request Review" link done by a member\members.

If a member is going to "Request" a Review of a group, the member should have to give reason for requesting that review to the Abuse Team (a mail form should be presented to the clicker to fill out) and not be able to just click on "Request Review" to have a group placed in Denied for personal reasons.

A "Review" should be done by the Abuse Team, since that is what a member is "Requesting" from the Abuse Team; to investigate any violations of Terms of Use.

There are members on this site that use the "Request Review" to try and cause mental abuse towards Moderators and Members of groups for personal reasons of dislikes or conflicts they have for members or that\those groups.

Well obviously someone has the knoweldge and the knowhow to do that if you recieved a message like that Nick.

Goes off to think in her special thinking-wishful chair.
