Ok in addition to begging for info on when style changes will be coming, here’s a couple I’d like answers to.
For any devs:
- Can we start seeing a little more understanding and responsiveness towards bugs posted in the forums here, especially ones relating to the website?
I still have two posts there that have received no acknowledgement from joet or services, despite tagging them in the original post and a bumping them 2 months after. Next week will mark 3 months with no response. It’s nothing major but it would at least be nice to know it’s been received and will be put on the to-do list to fix.
Of course there’s plenty of more pressing issues there still waiting for fixes/responses, but this would go some way to ease the feeling of “RB doesn’t care about its users any more”.
For whoever is now “in charge” of RB’s direction and future:
- I appreciate you guys won’t want to reveal all your plans but is there any chance that we could get at a least vague roadmap of where you envisage RB going? I’m thinking of say, a quarterly update on the forums in which you talk about what you’ve done in the previous quarter, and what you’ll be doing in the next, and perhaps a couple of bullet points on longer term plans.
I ask that because at least here on the forums there’s an unshakeable feeling of uncertainty about the future of the site, and I think it would do wonders having a little transparency, as well as quelling any issues and having a forum in the literal sense of the word, for discussion, perhaps a staff member could stick around for a mini Q&A when one of these is posted.
- So you’ve said you’ll keep your role as “global community manager”, who will " [help] guide the site into [an] even better future". What exactly are your day-to-day duties now? Am I correct in assuming you no longer do any coding/development?
- How are you doing? Do you read much of the backlash/hate that you/RB receives from people on the internet since the ABI investment and if so what’s your honest reaction to it?
