I'm about to give up on the Rama

This is the main board on The Outhouse, where Outhousers talk about everything. No topics are off limits, and it doesn't have to be about comics. All the topics from the other boards also show up in The Asylum, so you never have to leave1

I finally managed to get back in as MikeyG, but I still gave up on it. I posted one last time stating that I give up on it, and havn't posted there since. Even once you manage to register and log in, the site is way too slow, and has all kinds of bugs for just basic operation. I mean they call this the beta version and for sure it is, it needs SERIOUS QA testing done to it, before it should be released to the public. I dont know why they dont just use the proboards template. Its not perfect, but at least its fast and operable. The layouts are nice and fully customizable. They basically switched to a design that is "old internet". Slow and clunky, real flashy, rather then streamlined and realistic, fast, easy to read and respond.

Huge mistake. I dont know how many other people are going to leave but I would wager that its A LOT. I know I'm not the only person mad at it.

I could see switching to a different template if it sacrificed some features for ease of use. But to switch to a board that's harder to use is just plain weird.

You should post a "MASS EXODUS" thread and invite everyone over to your board. Post the thread on every RAMA category quickly, before they can delete the threads. I bet you'll get a flood of new people who are looking for a an all encompassing place to chat with original material and comic news.

I'm with you on that, I just went over there and don't feel like deciphering my way through it to get signed up again. I like the idea of inviting everyone over here ;D

We'll never match the Rama on comic news and such. I don't even think I'd like to try and match them on that. I would like to see some creators (writers/artists) migrate over here though.

Seriously, if we could get Sharque and the Shadow to post here, it would be Do You Yell at Your Liefeld Comics all over again. I'm forcing myself to keep posting there in order to promote Blud Blood and argue with Batfan about Metallica, but seriously, it is extremely annoying. The old newsarama made it really easy to find a thread you liked and keep up with it. Now, you have to scroll through 5 pages to find the thread you're looking for, or go to your own post history and click on it, then skip a few pages, plus it is slow, plus I can't even post a full-sized copy of Just a Little Blud. To top it all off, there's about 5 different threads going for every topic because of how difficult it is to keep up with them, so you can't even find a good controversy anymore. The change was a very, very bad move.

Internet Explorer.

Apparently Firefox is the devil. OK, Firefox IS the devil, but it also doesn't work well with the New Newsarama. Or so I'm told.

I don't Firefox as it is the devil. :)

firefox works fine with newsarama, as long as you keep it updated and have all the proper plugins
