I hate to sound like a sourpuss....but am going to anyway. I think contests are GREAT, HOWEVER, I think business at hand is much more important.
We have reported issues this weekend about goings on that have an impact on our sales/listings, etc. Site issues, ebay duplicate listings issues, items that have not worked for days and in some cases weeks.
I happen to go onto facebook to see IF anyone had posted issues there figuring there could be issues there that were not on forums. OR even responded to on there, but not on forums.
Well, LOW and BEHOLD...at 12:33 there was update on the BEARD contest on there....NOTHING posted on the forums about ANY of the problems we are having. At minimum have someone say...we see the problems and are trying to find out what is going on.
While life may be a game for some...for others...the function of the site is MUCH more URGENT than who the heck won a hair growing contest.
NOW....I realize it is probably different departments doing this....but perhaps...there needs to be an effort to put BUSINESS ahead of fun.
YES I realize this was a fundraiser, and I am ALL for raising money for a cause...but....it is very irritating to see play when we are trying to get the site to function with ease.
I am sorry if this offends anyone but I find this quite disturbing. especially since I am trying to use functions that have not worked for quite awhile now.....
