What the actual [***]?

As above

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Am I the only person who was reading this thread https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/any-answers/implication-of-negative-rese... and found that the replies indent off to the right at a certain point until they CANNOT BE FRIGGING READ?

Seriously Aweb. Just send me a sh1t in the post instead of "improving" the site anymore.

 

Now let me just scroll down and put on some meaningless tags before I post.

Yes, I found that too. Most annoying.

Any thread exceeding ten comments is difficult to follow.

12 months on and there are still no tangible improvements.

At my place of work, serious questions would have been put to the developers months ago. They would have been sacked by now.

Maybe everyone has been sacked and that is why they never fix these issues, or respond to points raised.

That would be more accurate. We're almost there.

It's like Aweb has the same mindset as HMRC. Utterly and completely baffling.

Since the "reinvention" last May, Aweb is like a market town, that's had a bypass built.

Traffic (members in this case) simply bypass it. The shame is that, although John made a humble apology, at the beginning of the year, it still remains an apology!

Mind, do tell, if anyone knows of an alternative?

I agree. Just glancing through the corporation forum, most queries appeared to have US flags, so the UK content is the exception rather than the norm.

I'd think there would be too much risk of getting wrong jurisdiction answers from a forum like that. A shame.

Well, despite all the negative press at least MTD has been a real bonus for A Web; without it recent traffic would have been negligible.

I will go against the the negativity on this thread.

I have my gripes with Sift (censoring of blog click rate drives me nuts! WHY!!) BUT, I think the content on AW is superb. Content, as you know is king.

There is no real alternative. Accountancy Age - YAWN. So damned snotty nosed.

AW is so relevant to my work. A big thank you to all the contributors and the Editorial team.

It's the contributors that generate most of the content.

Most of the articles are wishy washy crap that I'd expect to read in the Daily Mail. There's only a small number of articles worth reading, usually the ones by Jennifer Adams or Rebecca Benneyworth.

FT is right. I've been very interested to read about HMRC's expenses audit 5 times in the last three months.

Another annoying thing about threads (particularly long ones) is the notifications. Under the old site, I used to quite like receiving an e-mail notifying me of the postings that occurred over the past hour.

Instead, when you select "hourly update" with the current site, you get a semi-random dribble of postings over the previous few days.

For instance, from the thread in question at 10:50am on 15/03/2017, I received notification of Basil's post from the day before 14/03/2017 13:01

Then 10 minutes later, I received notification of Lion's response to Basil dated 14/03/2017 13:33.

How hard is it to get something like that right?

It also seems that the occasional update from Ben Smith has been abandoned as a meaningless exercise.

Since John admitted at Xmas that the new site is pants there's been nothing in terms of improvements or changes or even vague information.

Well, one thing I have noticed is that all the posts over 7 in a thread now seem to display without needing to click the box at the foot each time. Now have not checked if this only applies if I have already visited the thread or if it applies re all threads.

Still think navigation buttons re say page 2, page 3 and last post should be at both top and bottom of each thread page.

I still get the 'show all replies' button

Edit: Seems you were right. Don't seem to have to click it again when I revisit the thread. So a slight improvement. Three cheers for Sift!

Strange coincidence -King Jong posts a reasonable comment, members extend on the theme and, hey ho, there's another "modification" to the site?

Do Aweb seriously takes us all for complete *****?
