What is funny is the story that people will buy...
Tues AM TJBlog: WE'RE BACK! (and all we can say is ...)
Many of you have made great, thoughtful posts on the misdaventure of the past few days.
(Subtitled - those paying customers who had valid complaints and aired them Suck.)
We stuck out necks out for you, big-time. We hope you remember why you liked the site in the first place, and stick with us.
(Subtitled...Really, for us!!! How can you do favors to a customer who is paying for a product with expectations, it is like GM saying we are doing you a favor making sure the brakes work??? His site makes millions of dollars a year in subscriptions, any actions are not for the customer but his bank account, when you have people bailing or threatening to bail you are loosing your cash cows...this was self-preservation and those who believe otherwise are sheep. Had everyone sang happy happy joy joy after the roll over do you think he would have said "Lets go back, I am doing this for you!!!" Get real.)

This is actually one case where I do buy the story. That rollout was a complete disaster and the software was worse than some pretty basic open source stuff available for free that takes 30 minutes to setup. So I bet they were pushing to go back to the old format because they saw $$$ slipping away to competitors. They would have lost at least 30-40% of their subscriber base at the next renewal, if not more. And just the mods/editors complaining wouldn't have done anything to roll back and have Fox admit they were unprepared. Had to get users threatening to leave, or just plain not visiting the site anymore, to really force a rollback of that magnitude.
Oh I have no doubt they complained...but was about them losing $$$ if no one said they were leaving or the large quantity they would have remained mum. The point is you cannot do paying customers a favor, and the neck stick out was for the sake of bank and their own well-being not the customer (less quantity of subscriptions).
Idk if this as been discussed or not and idk If it's just a malfunction on my phone but when I go to scout on my phone in the last couple days it is showing up just like it looked before they made the change. I have it bookmarked so maybe that's why? Wondering if anyone else is seeing this?
Sums it up pretty well
Welcome to Wolverine247! We're glad you're here, so make yourself at home.
Not bad for a first post. Way to butter up the regulars.
What happened with you and the Beav? Didn't you used to always post all of the Michigan stories around the web on the regular?
You were still able to use the old forums the entire time. You just had to have the old links or google to get to the old links.
+1 I'm curious as well. I was shocked when I saw him on here
That's actually a website?
I left because my work was taken two years in a row and I was not given credit, if you get their recruiting magazines the recruiting capsules in them were my work, yet they took my work and put other authors names on my articles such as Sam and Allen, etc. The first year I chalked it up to an accident; this year after I complained last year they just did not put any names on them but trust me it was my work...nor did they list me as a contributor. The owner is a user when I brought it up this year the blame and excuses went elsewhere to Sam and Allen yet look at his twitter handle it says he is the EDITOR. Instead of saying sorry or I will print a correction in the next magazine or on the site, he said essentially I was just being weird or difficult. So there you go, and any of you who were or are members there for any amount of time should know how hard I worked to provide stuff to that site on a daily basis and for free, less the last two years they comped my subscription, and though appreciated $99 doesn't even really equal anything when you figured I spent on average 5 hours a day reasearching and linking material, doing stats etc. I will just say watch yourself with the owner and do not be blind like I was.
I will be soon.
A BIG welcome to some old friends, from over at GBW.
Another BIG hello- to the guys that have been around for a while now.
I cant get on here that much these days. But im proud to say: I was one of the first 10 Michigan fans on this site. I brought you the Pimp Poster that is ScoutExile....and let him take over from there. He has brought over many folks from GBW, for sure.
Well looky who we have here. It's been awhile, Mack. Hope all is well.

Go Blue and Go Titans!
A year? I've been here 20+ months too.
Don't argue with me.
Who are the first? Blue2468 was already here. I came when trcmb made the change, which brought Due51, Big M, and others also.
