RootsWeb disaster

RootsWeb Newsroom » Blog Archive » Message Boards Have Been Updated: "The RootsWeb message boards were updated today. While these updates did not include all of the features advertised last summer, you will notice significant improvements to the look of the boards.

Improvements have also been made to the underlying board technology that will help us keep the boards running smoothly."

BUT GUI and useability are reduced

DISASTER STRIKES ROOTSWEB

BETTER TECHNOLOGY
MEANT
WORSE USER INTERFACE

HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEER ADMINISTRATORS GIVE UP BECAUSE THEIR TASK HAS BEEN MADE MORE DIFFICULT

PROGRAMMERS WERE TOO CLEVER , EVEN ARROGANT AND DID NOT TEST THE NEW LAYOUT WITH A PANEL OF USERS IN BETA

I AM ALREADY LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVE BOARDS


yes i know i am shouting
