There have been many wrong design decisions here at wordpress.com recently and I wrote about it a few times. First they brought us the horrible new editor that we can fortunately still bypass. Next they did negatively change the top bar to the point until it was unusable. I also mentioned more critique here and ranted about the changes quite often. I usually dislike to rant but if something does impact my workflow negatively, I surely won’t mince words. When the new editor came up, there was a thread in the forums full of user concerns and we were fortunately … Continue reading The WordPress Interface And Stats Issue And The Thread Closing Again
As mentioned, WordPress.com users got this horrible and unacceptable new editor. But many active community members did revolt against the changes here in a very long forum thread. Many people were afraid and asked if the classic editor would be … Continue reading Partial Success of the WordPress Community with the Beep Beep Boop Issue
This list will be mainly related to the WordPress.com community. This community is a great one. A powerful community with powerful tools. But there are also some people who seems not to understand that there can be behaviors that the majority of bloggers won´t accept.

The company is nominated among many other companies and voting for the first round will be opened tomorrow March 19.

In 2012 the gaming community was upset about EA due to the controversial ending of Mass Effect 3. And in 2013 EA did fall flat on the face with the broken Sim City release. 2014 was also not … Continue reading Will Electronic Arts Get The “Worst Company In America” Award Again?
Todays Daily Prompt topic is “best friends” as it seems. They write: “Tell us the origin story of your best friend. How did you become friends? What is it that keeps your friendship rockin’ after all these years?”. Well, first I would say that I not only have one best friend. I rather would say it in plural. I found my “best friends” a long time ago. We grown up together in a very rough neighborhood and maybe this alone made our friendship pretty strong.

I mentioned it already but I do it again, World of Warcraft is a pay-to-win game now in my opinion, and I can just laugh about Blizzard´s attempted explanations. But I will dig a little bit into the topic again. Isn´t it hilarious that developers of today prefer to care more about people who think that leveling is boring, and who didn´t even notice that the entire game has always been based on leveling? When we met those confused players in-game, we called them eBayers in the past.
