Why bother asking me, Hulu, if an ad is relevant to me and after I answer no, you continue to serve up that ad to me not only in the current show I’m watching, but on shows in the future too.
You should rewrite the text in the question to “Would you like to click here for no reason?”.
Yes I know it’s not a social network, I’m diversifying a bit to include any software/website issue, OK?, geeez, get off my back already
So, I’m closing down Lync and rather than close down it decides to crash. Here below are the options it offered me. One is restart, well no I don’t want that, I want to close it. Another is check the web for a solution (WHICH NEVER FINDS ANYTHING EVER!!) and then restart, that’s even less of what I want. Finally an option to debug the program. What, you want me to fire up visual studio and find your bugs for you now? Screw that.
It’s not the worst problem in the world and barely worthy of a blog post, but I’m running out of things to bitch about, geeez, get off my back already (oh, I said that at the start). It’s even less of a problem because the dialog’s “X” button at the top right anyway does the close/ignore that I wanted. I’m half tempted to cancel this post right now but I’m not going to give up after this amount of typing and having already made the screenshot. By the way, you’re just as mad, you’ve read it this far too
Hey Youtube, when someone uploads more than one video and the titles are in the form of “<some words>1″ and ”<some words>2″ and ”<some words>3″ etc, the key thing being that the last part of the video title is an increasing sequence of numbers, then realize that these are a sequence of videos.
Once you detect that it’s a sequence, and somebody’s watching one of them, then the first suggestion on the right should be the next number in the sequence. If you’re watching Part 5 and you know it’s one of a sequence of 6, then you should be offering the link to Part 6 on the right side at the top. Here’s a screenshot of how they’re getting it wrong currently.
Why give me an option of clicking yes when there’s no option of clicking no?
Yet again LinkedIn take something that works and make it worse.
Previously, you would see the name of the person when your contact X has added person Y as a new contact. Now they’ve modified it so that you can’t see the name. WHY????
You have to rollover the picture to see who the person is. Why ? The name is available, so why would you not show it. LinkedIn developers are really weird. I don’t understand their thought processes. It’s especially weird in this example below. The new contact being added by this person is someone I already have.
This is beyond the joke. Are we alpha testers for this nonsense? I wouldn’t even class it as being at the stage of calling it a beta. Are the QA people all on vacation?
Now you know how the magic floating “x” is a bit stupid, I posted about that here, but now it gets worse. Here’s what I see on my own timeline right now, a PYMK box offering me 3 suggestions. I can click on the (stupid moving) “x” to delete each suggestion, because that’s what you do with suggestions when they’re not people you know. Right?
So what happens if I click “See All” ? You’d think I see all of my current suggestions, not just three, and I can click the “x” on each one there too. WRONG ! Here’s what I get (with extra red lines drawn on by me to show where the “x” could possibly be, but isn’t):
You see those same three suggestions in a different layout. You even get their tagline so you get a bit of extra information. OK, that’s good, but now I want to click the “x” for each of these people and dismiss them as suggestions because I don’t know them. Now, where is that “x” this time? Nope, not top right, how about bottom right?, center right? nearer to the name? Below Add Friend? Above it? Anywhere at all? All WRONG! There is no “x”. I even inspected the HTML there in the Chrome web inspector. There’s no “x” hiding at all.
What the F*** Facebook? How can this possibly pass QA ? You can’t have a list of friend suggestions and only allow us one option, to add them. I wish I were in charge of QA there because I’d bloody well fire someone.
