They only did that to distract people from their ire over MGB 3.0.

Maybe put a link at the top of the page so less informed users know what's happening and can have a better chance to give their input. Otherwise we end up frequent posts clogging up the board, which appears to be a hot button issue with you.

Very interesting that it took "URGING" to get this info posted to the main board so that it could be seen by the masses.  Many of us know where this thread resides but I'm quite certain the casual user had no idea this thread exists.  For the life of me I cannot figure out why they should have to be prompted to front page this info so their consumers are updated on the happenings of reported issues and the progress toward resolution.

Ok, lets focus on that instead of the other litany of issues that many of us have described.

But I will admit, negging you is an added bonus.

I've never been on a board that required the user to download an image/gif/vid to their hard drive in order to apply it to a message post. No post editing, points broken (again), endless white space, massive header that looks like something from myspace, never ending scrolling, only get 1 - 2 posts viewable on screen, can't tell what is new vs old posts, message settings that don't stay applied, can't access your account and password/login issues still happening after two months.  All of this and still no front page communication regarding user questions/issues from anyone associated with this laughable disaster. 

In what world did anyone from the blog or Human Element think that their efforts had produced something that was ready for go-live deployment?

We need a HTTM to take us back to MGB 2.0. Maybe Thornton Melon can help.

I joined the original site right after that game as well. Visiting the site during the first coaching search was a multiple time daily addiction that continues to this day. Les Miles, flight tracker, stupid Herbstreit, RR, so many memories.

I was in the U.P. with no internet access until 7/8. I was surprised to see we were no longer on blogspot and re-singed up while watching Star Wars at the Franklin Square Inn in Houghton. I know, tl;dr so I'll leave you with this:

Additionally, since we can no longer edit our posts, the inundation of multiple board topics for the first three weeks regarding user questions and issues was a very bad look, imho.  A little effort  in showing that they were understanding and acknowledging some of our thoughts would have gone a long way in keeping customers happy.

As far as I can tell there has been little to none of that thus far.

06/30/2018 - 9:35am Given the arrogance of…

Given the arrogance of putting up a fake myspaceish throwback board for a day seems like they felt that they had a good product ready for consumption.  To me and obviously many others, that move was extremely childish and off putting.

And to then trot out this eyesore with no main board post from Brian or Seth announcing what new features are available or a how to tutorial for editing, embeddding pics/gifs/vids, what is missing or still under development and what may be available in the future is extremely disappointing.  

All they had to (and still could do) was make a post shortly after deployment saying we understand "you, dear readers" are having issues with a few things and we really want to help; here's a link that attempts to answer your questions and hopefully improve your user experience. If you're still having questions or concerns here's a form to send in so we can better understand what issues you the consumer are experiencing.

A mod sticky that is difficult for your customers to find and has no discernable distinction on what are new vs answered questions makes it appear that they are happy with their product and expect their consumers to be equally happy as well.

I'm not asking for Brian and Co. to give a mea culpa, bash their own product or publically complain about HuEl at all.  I just think most of us would appreciate some type of main board acknowledgement of our user questions/issues with the site and a offer up some way of better communicating with each other regarding this situation.  Radio silence is no way to engender yourself to your consumers.

I'd liken this design, implementation, and roll out to that of designing a play where by your TE lines up in the backfield, going through your play chart and calling said play during a bowl game, and then actually attempting to hand off to the TE who's never lined up at RB.

I did see that new Wolverines Wire site has a similar layout to this effort, minus the commenting and board posting/diaries.

"Typical of Brian to retreat to the virtual MGoBasement and not communicate with his customers."

You hit the nail on the head right there.

I understand that it was a big endeavor to get the new site built and migrate the info from the old site. I get that. But the lack of communication and basic customer care has been the biggest disappointment thus far for me. I'm sure Brian and Co. read these threads and the silence from them has been deafening.

A simple user guide for posting pics/gifs/vids/hyperlinks/block quotes, acknowledgement of our questions/issues, some type of submittable form to report said issues and an annoucement of know and work in progress bug fixes would go a long way in providing basic customer satisfaction.

The ability to edit your post would be extremely beneficial in space saving so you don't have to create a new post every time you fat finger or have a new thought add.

The thing is, he was still under contract for 2014 & 2015. There was no need to spend that kind of $$$ extending him eight more years at that point in Miarch 2014. If they could have waited a little while longer maybe the extension wouldn't have been for so many years.

I understand Illitch wanting a WS championship before passing, but man, this contract is a massive albatross to the team and their future.

On another note, when in the heck are they going to bring up Christian Stewart? He's one of the only players in their system that can hit for power. The Tigers are the worst team in the AL for HR's with only 54 on the entire season.

Edit - contract was signed in 2014, the year after his triple crown season.

BTW, the lack of ability to edit posts on this new platform really sucks.

Unfortunately his "fine year" has been mostly as a singles hitter. There has been little to no power in his bat this year. 3 dingers, 11 doubles and 22 rbi's are alarming stats especially for someone with his credentials.

That eight year contract extension in 2016 is never going to get any viable ROI.

Well, in Jan. he announced that he was transferring so maybe this is what it seems.
