I see you just deleted the whole other thread and the discussion in it.
As a new contributor to the forum (but not a new member by any means) it's great to see how things are run here. Basically you just delete shit you don't like the look of. There was numerous posts in that thread that indicated problems/site issues. You didn't include them here you just deleted the whole thread.
So I'm guessing you're some sort of cunt or forum nazi "badger" or whoever the fuck you are. You don't like criticism and this post will disappear as fast as a detailed and active response thread to the current changes. What a dick.
1. Most of the historic videos don't work. "Error loading media: File could not be played" welcomes us when trying to play most older videos.
2. Entire messaging system is broken.
3. Wall posts broken.
4. "AROUND THE WEB" section at bottom of page does not display correctly and has oversized text which can't be read.
5. Page load times have increased. This is a cardinal sin, especially for the millions of dial up peasants out there in the world.
6. The video buffer size (Avg or Max) sucks tremendous ass.
7. Packet loss still a random issue on many videos.
8. If adaptive streaming is being used it has not been implemented correctly. The buffering algorithm sucks.
9. Page number buttons don't work anywhere on the site. This is particularly bad as people cannot access more than one page at a time (unless you enjoy manually changing the URL, I'd imagine most don't.)
Quite simply the implementation of the new site has been a disaster. Nothing is being fixed and unique traffic metrics are down around 20% since implementation. Let that sink in as ad revenue dies and less people bother trying to access the site. If I can't express these views here without them getting deleted then fuck your site. I've lurked for the region of 8 years and I haven't decided to contribute to the forums for fun. I'm writing it to make you do something immediately and to realise how drastic this is to the site. My thread wasn't allowed, my other comments have been deleted. There isn't anywhere to post this. If there is no space for this kind of discussion your site deserves to die.
P.S Forgot to mention, the site is virtually unusable on Android (version 5.1.1). Above mentioned buffering issues are magnified to the point it's not a streaming video site any more. Formatting to mobile version is horrible, page size is wrong, advert links not resized, video reels not resized. Awful, unusable experience.
