  • In light of another fiesta on a "competitor site", I poked my head in here again. Here's my twocents.
  • When a ship starts going down, there's only three courses of action for every individual
  • 1. Fix it
  • 2. Abandon it
  • 3. Stick with it
  • and the key is that individual chooses the option that sounds the best to them, personally. Given that the ship is going down rather fast at the moment, you'd think there's plenty of motivation to abandon ship. But it's not, here's the thing:
  • _I can't get my daily Q&A fix here_.
  • There are no questions, what am I going to answer? If I abandon ship, I'd be swimming.
  • This is not entirely a chicken and egg problem. There's no way you can answer a non-existent question. You can, however, ask a question even if you only get subpar answers. You have to get the questions in first. The answerers are easy to, shall we say, entice in the current climate.
  • ---
  • Aside from that, there's just a lot of UI/UX pains that adds up.
  • A lot of workflow habits are broken by UI differences, and I don't know whatever is justifying these differences are worth it. I suggest a very loose goal of breaking the least amount of workflow habits carried over from the (ahem) "competitor site".
  • Exhibit A: I can't resize this answer box. And I'm triggered.

In light of another fiesta on a "competitor site", I poked my head in here again. Here's my twocents.

When a ship starts going down, there's only three course of action for every individual

1. Fix it
2. Abandon it
3. Stick with it

and the key is that individual chooses the option that sounds the best to them, personally. Given that the ship is going down rather fast at the moment, you'd think there's plenty of motivation to abandon ship. But it's not, here's the thing:

_I can't get my daily Q&A fix here_.

There's no questions, what am I going to answer? If I abandon ship, I'd be swimming.

This is not entirely a chicken and egg problem. There's no way you can answer a non-existent question. You can, however, ask a question even if you only get subpar answers. You have to get the questions in first. The answerers are easy to, shall we say, entice in the current climate.

Aside from that, there's just a lot of UI/UX pains that adds up. 
A lot of workflow habits are broken by UI changes, and I don't know whatever is justifying these changes are worth it. I suggest a very loose goal of breaking the least amount of workflow habits for the UI carried over from the (ahem) "competitor site".

Exhibit A: I can't resize this answer box. And I'm triggered.
