    Default Curious about when FA make their new UI update

    We all remember Dragoneer saying a Summer Update was coming (Pfft, It's Winter now!) and recently some updates have been made to the current site.
    It makes me wonder, shouldn't the coders add these recent new updates to the new UI or have they suddenly decided to give up?
    Of course, admins do need to focus on their life with whatever they have important.
    Maybe release a beta version? Give a few users accessibility and check out for any bugs and such?

    What do you think? No arguing please, just post your opinions.

    My opinion is that it needs to be put up right now, been promised this shit for over a year and it just gets old ya know? post it, and if something's broke, then it's faster to have someone point it out.

    I think the current plan is to maintain complete silence on the issue in the hope that people will eventually forget it was ever mentioned. If that doesn't work just make NEW EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT about vague plans to do things that will be released on a very specific arbitrary date in the future plucked straight out of nowhere with no means of meeting this deadline.

    Rinse. Repeat.

    Also, we're working it. Some things are in the works. An announcement about things will be made.

    Stop assuming.

    No, because legacy code.

    Admins won't know about bugs and glitches if they don't use a couple of well-trusted users on the site to review and report any problems out to the admins.

    The best guess is it's never going to happen. The new feature updates weren't for the UI anyway they were to distract from all the Furocity admins leaving by making it seem like the site is doing stuff. They probably have a few minor tweaks like that to throw out whenever there is drama.

    Summer time previously was hell for FA with the DDOS's and problems etc, so handling that was more important than the UI, although you do have a point, Summer is just around the corner.

    If it were about the Furocity staff leaving and complaining about the lack of work behind FA, fair deal, but if Dragoneer announced a new UI and then it never happens, why would he get us all worked up for it in the first place? This is why I'm curious. Be a shame to hear the UI was called off. The old less-secure version we have now is slowly dying for me.

    Well I think the updates were about the Furocity thing but I doubt any admin would agree to that.
    Wikifur has the first mention of the new UI as being in 2007 but Ferrox was meant to be the replacement for FA and that was started in 2006. So it's really been five years since FA was first getting a new UI. It keeps getting announced and promised but every single time it's been delayed or cancelled.

    If FA were tightening their security, you could say a new UI would take 2-3 years to make if they were that desperate on security.
    But all these cons and meets that, magically just become created out of no-where, is what I believe is causing the delay.

    New UI update? I'll just be honest here, don't hold your breath for it. If it comes, it comes. If not, oh well.


    And they never said "which" Summer it'd be in. /joke
    Good job guys, we're done here. Lets go home.

    When they feel like it (IE When pigs fly) :V

    I'm just assuming it will never happen because of all the bullshit that has happened this year.

    Meh - the site is free, it's tolerably fast. I'm happy to wait.

    We could really do with a new UI, don't you think? Are you not bored of the current UI?
    Personally if 'Neer needs assistance getting the UI done, he should've hired a couple extra coders to do some work.

    Why do people keep saying this? Just because something is free doesn't mean it needs to be sub-par. What happened to the attitude of taking pride in what you do and doing something well, not for external reward, but, just because if it's worth doing it's worth doing well?

    You are forgetting the usual attitude we have to deal with, as staff, when we handle tickets.

    On average, I'd say it's half a person thanking you, and 3 whining to you, per ticket.

    Well it doesn't matter considering most art gallery sites are way ahead of FA in terms of features. It really isn't surprising about delayed/broken promises and that coding that is quite old and a security risk.
    This is what happens when i try to be nice.

    Not an excuse when a UI update has been promised for a couple years in a ROW with LITTLE DONE for it.

    Normally the system is thought to be that you provide services that are up to date/better than those of the competition so clients keep using your services.

    If you don't provide this you shouldn't be surprised when your clients start to complain or diminish in numbers.

    I don't think it was proper to announce an update and not keep to schedule. I know shit happens as they say, but you should keep a calendar of events if it's not going to happen and update people if you miss the schedule and give an eta or state you're working on it at the least.

    All in favour of Dragoneer hiring coders that only work on the new UI, say Aye!
