BLOGLAND CHAOS



What a car crash that greeted when I logged onto this site, especially in blogland!

How have you found the new Community format?

The good news is that the site will soon revert back to the old format - please see the exchange of mails between and Andrew Conru, the site's founder, earlier today.

My mail to the site
The new Community format is a disaster. I’ve spent the last two hours trying navigate the blogs I follow and the groups I’ve joined. Though I can find my blog and my group I moderate amidst the unsolicited links of blogs and groups that don’t interest , I can’t do the things that I could do with the old format.
With blogs, I cannot find the bloggers I follow unless I stumble across them. I cannot find replies to my comments on other blogs. There is no overview page which gave a sense of community with a list of new posts of bloggers I follow and a link to where I’m quoted.
With my blog, I cannot see who has just posted a comment for me to reply . I cannot see a listing of my most recent blog posts. I cannot see who has visited and who is following my blog. I cannot even find any emojis to attach to my comments.
With groups, I cannot see if anything new has posted on the group I moderate and cannot see who is in the group. Also I cannot post a new thread or a comment on an existing thread the group.
The new format is a black hole which undermines any sense of community. It was seemingly launched without consultation or without announcement. It is one big car crash.
I know you are not responsible but I just want provide my feedback. I will struggle find a reply this post if you do reply. There’s seemingly no dialogue with this so-called community format. The new format is chaos.


Andrew’s reply to my mail
Hi Spunky ... as one of the most prolific members here, I really value your feedback! We were planning just put a 'beta' link get some feedback but decided instead to roll it out and see what happens. It seems like the long-term bloggers are the most negative which is understandable. We'll roll it back in the morning (it's 4am here) and regroup with all the great feedback we got in the last hours or so.
All the "I can see new stuff" is taken care by the "Alerts" the left sidebar ... no matter if it's it from a blog, group, or erotic story. Once I reply here, you'll see the alert on your sidebar.

The old format is back (at least for me), but for whow long?
I just got this mail from Andrew:
"Hi this is Andrew... the guy responsible for the "train wreck" blog update... really sorry for it... might roll back today. Happy to get your feedback on it now."

Thank you so much for reaching out to Andrew, I somehow missed this and I am glad I did as I had no issues like you all were talking about.

One thing though that I didn't appreciate Andrew saying was that " It seems like the long-term bloggers are the most negative which is understandable."

I am not sure what he is referring to but not all of us long time bloggers are as negative as he thinks. Perhaps if they ran the site better, more members wouldn't be so negative..Just Saying..

Again thanks so much for getting to the bottom of this and I hope you both enjoy a wonderfully peaceful Sunday..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Going to bed was the best thing to do, though I suspect this new format will be re-launched!

I didn't reach out direct to Andrew; he just replied to a comment I left on the site's feedback group and then he nailed me. I don't have a hotline to him.
But at least the site has gone back to its old format, however imperfect.
I suspect the new format will be re-launched; it's smething to do with the codes the site being very old and the site feels it's best to start afresh rather than fix each glitch as it comes along.
Bloggers are the most likely to give feedback, eg complain, given that we probably use the site the most ... but the site doesn't make much money from us!
The new format is for smartphones in that it bombards you with links of blogs and groups for a member to click and enter the rabbit warren. Blogs and groups are to be conflated. The new format is separating the dating side from the community side for some reason even they interconnect. Many people date by getting to know p[eople through their blogs and groups.
To prove how the new format doesn't work: your blog was about the only blog I could find easily under the new format. I left a message about the new format on your ambassador blog post but there's no record of it now. How the site thinks it can migrate all the stuff from the old to the new format beggars belief. Some stuff I posted on my group appeared on other people's blogs!

I'm not chummy with Andrew. He just replied to a comment I posted on the site's group and he then mailed me.
Your point about a new BlackSexMatch.com guide for dummies, though probably meant satirically, is a good point. The site needs to consult with its members and, if it does'nt want to do this, at least announce its changes with guidance before the changes are made.
Like you, I feel it's a fait accompli. The new format, I suspect, will be re-launched. It wants to be like other social media sites and make loads of money. Blogland makers them very little money!

I agree it was a mess, but little by little I was working my way through SOME of it, when it was taken down.

In my former professional life we used to say if you need to read a book to know how to use it, it's too hard.

.chummy....1. because he recognized you as one of the more ' prolific' bloggers and 2. because i too commented on /in his ' forum', yet didnt get a response such as you did.
......and i had to join his ' community/group' to do so. Cant find any of that now.

Same as two weeks ago when this happened....everything i wrote/ commented on in that Zone was never heard / seen again, until last nights Zone hood.

....and nope, it wasnt meant as satire. I truly need a ...new format guide....broken down to the basic level.

Tmpt....i may be giving Andrew too much credit. Yet, reading some of the responses to his forum last night, he was looking for feedback and several long time bloggers gave their thoughts about the changes. Most all were negative responses. Some were constructive, others not so much. People were talking about why this with no warning, people couldnt find their own blogs , never mind others blogs. The only one i found was lust4life. It was bedlam and people let him know. Soooooo i dont think he meant negative in general, i think he meant negative in their feedback to his new format. Happy Sunday lady ~

I gave Mr. Cornu a piece of my mind. It was a piece I don't use when I'm here.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

I saw that. He posted on my beta blog that was posted almost as soon as the new format went into effect. My biggest concern was the privacy settings, even more so than the changes to the format. I never did see he answer to that particular question.

I too won't be sticking around if this new format as launched is re-launched on us. The problem is that the site makes very little money from blogland, which makes it vulnerable to whimsical change.

I'm not one of the most prolific bloggers here, however it's measured. Andrew Conru said I was one of the site's most prolific members not bloggers; he's probably referring to my group and not my blog activity.
I don't know why he responded to me as such, but I just wanted to share what he said to me to blogland because things are going to change here.
And I did reply to him asking the site to issue guidance to members about any big changes being foisted on us.

Mr Conru certainly deserved a piece of your mind. He retreated within a day but for how long ...?

It's good it passed by you by. It got that bad, and I'm not trivialising it, there would be no way of me finding your Sunday music quizes.
The fact that I follow your blog and the fact that I enter music as one of my interests wouldn't mean anything; I'd still get gangbang links. On second thouhts, maybe the new format is best! No, I want to do your weekly quiz and to get next to fuck all right!

Andrw Conru probably doesn't have the answer to your question. He just wants to make money out of us. Fair enough, but the site has to provide us with something to spend our money on.

I'm also to old for change. With change there are winners and losers, so why not do gradual change when everyone has time to adjust. This is the strategy of the Roman emperor, Fabius. Fabians unite!

It was an utter disaster.
The blog homepage was just littered with seemingly random blogs and groups that the site thinks I was interested in after completing a brief questionnaire. I only found bloggers I follow by chance and then I only found a few. And I had no way of finding replies to my comments on other blogs. There was no way of finding recent or trending posts.
I spent a few hours getting nowhere.
Incredibly the site seems determined to roll it out again soon!
Good to see you around!
