So this was me on Facebook about four hours ago:

OH MY GOD I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU HOW BAD GOOGLE SITES IS PISSING ME OFF RIGHT NOW, I AM STABBIER THAN THE STABBIEST STABBER WHO EVER STABBED, GODDAMN.

Seriously? If you want people to use your tools, those tools have to 1. do what you say they're supposed to do and 2. not suck.

I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS, I'M ON A SHORT TIMETABLE AND MY MATERIALS ARE ALREADY COPIED AND I CANNOT CHANGE THE URL NOW BECAUSE, HELLO, ALREADY COPIED. My presentation is *tomorrow morning*, Google, and only my deep commitment to nonviolence is saving your offices from an actual firebombing. (No, I'd never actually, Mr. FBI Guy.)


And then I commented (on my own entry, yes) to add:

(Like, it is ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS, GOOGLE, that deleted tabs STILL APPEAR ON THE SITE even though if you click them you get a message that says PAGE WAS DELETED N00B LOL and you actually have to go to Manage Site > Deleted items and click the ticky box and choose Delete Permanently and then click FUCK YES WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU, AGAIN, and THEN the item is finally gone. Even though you would think that if you have the chance to undo a deletion that the item would at least not, you know, APPEAR PUBLICLY, because you, you know, DELETED IT.)


So... yeah. But I made some people laugh, so, you know, all good. Or something like that.

Soooo... apparently, the new default comment layout? Is causing some people to suffer migraines and seizures.

Suffer. Migraines. And seizures.

It's something to do with the amount of white space and the gradients that are now part of the blue fields in the default view.

Also? Many visually impaired users are reporting that their screen readers aren't working properly any more.

Also also, a lot of people who are on slow connections or are using mobile devices like iPhones are reporting that the new icon selection tool is essentially rendering the site unusable.

Apparently there's been a five-figure surge in Dreamwidth signups. Yep. I'm getting more and more tempted to move over there. I'm hesitant to do so because so many of my friends are here and have stated no desire to move, and I would miss reading all your news. But these changes are materially affecting a LOT of users, and LJ's official response to the literally thousands of complaints has been... lackluster. (She said, ironically understating the case by a factor of a frillion.) This whole situation is just FUBAR, and it was just totally unnecessary. It's clear to me that this "upgrade" was not tested adequately, if it was tested at all by anyone outside the LJ staff offices.

Failiest of fails.


ETA: OH OH OH AND SOME PEOPLE ARE REPORTING THAT LJ HAS TURNED AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS BACK ON AFTER USERS DISABLED IT IN PROTEST. ARE YOU FOR REAL, ARE YOU REALLY FOR REAL, THAT IS FRAUD, WTF.

I cannot stop laughing, y'all. I'm in pain. The first ten seconds of this literally had me doubled over and smacking my desk. COMEDY GOLD.
