While It May Not Be Visible From The Outside . . .
WordPress just fucked up royally. And I am uber pissed.
First of all, aspies don’t like change anyways, but when you add IDIOCY and RANDOM CHAOS into it all, then we really get pissed off.
They just changed the dashboard (editing interface) that we use for everything behind the scenes. Before, everything was orderly, logical, calm, pleasant . . . should I go on?
Now? It looks like something out of my worst nightmare. It’s haphazard. It’s illogical. You can’t get back to the main page without going back through the blog (as far as I can tell thus far). Things aren’t loading all the way.
And don’t even let me get started on the page layout, especially on the first page.
Number 1, it’s all left oriented, which makes me feel like I should move my computer to the right about 3 inches just so I can see what I’m doing. There are literally 2 or 3 inches of blank space on the sides just NOT DOING ANYTHING. Is anyone important reading this??? What the hell is wrong with you wordpress people!?!
I really feel like hyperventilating. I really want to hurt things. I don’t really care who.
Okay. So the front page is completely haphazard. I’ve seen piles of leaves that have made more sense than what I’m looking at right now.
It’s like waking up and seeing that someone apparently dyed your hair purple in the middle of the night, and now you can’t get rid of it. Nor can you find the person responsible.
*breathes very deeply and tries to unclench teeth*
Did they warn us? No.
Who the hell had this bright idea?
Makes me feel like clawing first my own skin off, and then following suit with whoever implemented it.
How the fuck do you upload pics, evil wordpress people!?!
I really don’t want to offend anyone right now, but if you ever wanted to know what it was like for someone on the verge of a meltdown, then you’re in the prime seat right now.
Now on the opening page, you get this mess, plus about 4 other things.
IF I WANTED A FUCKING MYSPACE, I WOULD HAVE DONE IT ALREADY!!!
*shoots the powers that be the Finger*
Oh, and that little loading thing? Never loads. Nope.
*really wants to cry*
*is really pissed off*
Thanks a lot. I was in a fucking good mood too!
Why the hell should they put that much space in on the right side? I would really be handling this better right now if it weren’t for that. And I REFUSE to reorient the placement of my computer because you don’t know how to center the damn screen!
As for the main page, who puts stats, link backs and recent comments all together? Okay, the first two are related, but the comments should not be there!
And the page doesn’t even end there. It goes on with all of the stuff that’s usually there, only the font is about 2 sizes smaller and it’s all to the left like everything else.
*really really really wants to be self-destructive right now*
I will not. I won’t.
*tenses up every muscle in her body hard and holds it like that, gradually increasing pressure, while screaming soundlessly at them; all while fluttering her fingers on the sides of her head*
*takes a breath*
*does it again*
*clenches teeth instead*
*chews on hand*
*flips them off*
Throw some water balloons. Toilet paper someone’s house. Wrap someone’s car in saran wrap, but make sure you cover it in peanut butter first.
Here’s another place to give feedback. Personally, I’d like to know what other aspies think of this change. Is this a me thing, or is it some kind of aspie vs. NT thing???
Also, I did find one thing that makes this slightly easier to stand. You can click on your profile and change the color schema from new to old, or classic, or whatever the hell it’s called.
I’m a pretty passive person generally, but when I get pissed off, I get pissed off. I should probably try breathing again sometime soon. *growls*
