CoM

[deleted account] ( 19 moms have responded )

I'm really getting tired of the CoM's glitches. So today I sat down and made a list of the issues that are affecting me and that are getting really annoying. I'll post my list and then I ask that you add your issues (I'm talking technical issues here, not "so and so is rude" or anything personal) and then I'll send the whole thing to the CoM's management team. I thought this would be a helpful start to let them know what's going on, in the words of their own members, in one shot. Debating Mums is one of the most popular and most posted on forums on this site, so if they hear from us, as a whole, then maybe they'll listen. Here's what I've got so far:



Problems with CoM:

1) Clicking the green arrow --> to View Last Post from the topic board doesn’t take you to the last post. It takes you to page 1, first post of the OP.

2) Notifications don’t go away. Mine are currently at 359. This means that when FB tells me I have: Circle of Moms (7), I have to click on CoM and then remember that only the last 7 notifications are new and unread by me. That brings me to my next issue.

3) When I click on a new notification, for example, if someone “likes” my post or if someone marks my post as “funny”, I click on the link to “click here to see it” and it takes me to page 1, first post of the OP, not to my post that someone marked. That takes me to my NEXT issue.

4) There is some confusion going on because some people no longer have the option to mark things as “helpful”, “nice”, “funny” or “encouraging”. I still have those options but some people I know currently only have the option to “like” a post. I have been assured that this is highly annoying. I am glad I still have my "helpful", "nice", etc. options. I understand that changes have to “roll out” to different regions of the world, but with all of us not being on the same page, it gets confusing.



I guess my biggest "problem" is that things keep getting "fixed" that aren't "broken". I know that no system will make everyone happy, but there will most certainly be a majority who like things one way or another. I also understand that operating whatever system gets chosen takes time and work on someone's part (the CoM's team), so sometimes for the sake of ease or ease of maintenance, certain things get changed. But when it makes people like me, who usually spend a lot of time each day on this site, go for days without checking in, there's a problem. Anyone else agree? Let CoM's Management Team know what you think. And again, this isn't where you spend an hour typing out a 14 page diotribe.....just the basics ok? God, am I a "Classless B" or what??? LOL

I dont like the small space we have to type a response/post. I can only see two lines at a time, it makes it difficult to read and check over for errors.

my alert system is a bit better than it used to be. when i go to alerts even if i've already checked it, it take me to a page that says you have no new alerts to view, but there is a little box underneath that you can check that says "show all alerts" and i can see them all whenever i want to now.

i HATE how when i hit to see what post someone "liked" or whatever it doesn't take me to that post most of the time.

i totally agree it's annoying when they "fix" things that don't need fixin!

Alerts should be like the Inbox. It should always be available to click on. But once you check an alert, the number of alerts should go down by one (ONLY when you check that alert) and you should be able to go back to Alerts to see the next alert.

The word "alert" is staring to look and sound funny after typing that sentence.

It's pretty much all covered here. All in all I just find it really time consuming to keep up with posts at this stage. It wouldn't take much to simplify things. And yes, I do miss my funny, encouraging etc.

I don't get alerts for everything.
Before all my alerts use to add up and now I still have over 600, but some of them disappear.

I'd like more of a say in the matter of changes. Why couldn't we all vote on which changes we like and which ones we don't like?

My issues stem mostly from the alerts, I have over 400 or so I think and they don't go away after reading them like they used to. As well if someone has said they liked my post click here to see it, it just takes me to the op.
That's pretty much it,
I agree with everything Joy said and have had the same problems with all of them.,

I found that my page 1 is the last posts made and the first post are on the last page. This I like and makes sense I don't have to scroll through 5 or 6 pages to see what the last posts were they are on the first page.

When I log in and then go to the alerts page to see what's new, I click on something and it just logs me out of COM and Facebook. Very annoying.

I have to echo the sentiment that they spend a lot of time making up new features without spending the time to fix the glitches on the old one.

I get notifications but only to certain communities and I miss out entirely on seeing the responses to threads I've commented on.

I don't mind the like button...but would LIKE it better, if it were along side of the other buttons we used to have.

My 900+ list of notifications is gone now, which is nice, but it's been replaced by a new system and the alerts disappear before I can check them. The new spot only 'holds' about 6 alerts and if I have more than 6 and click on the thing to show all.... it takes me to another page and says I have no alerts.
