The council's new-look website crashed for two days, only months after being launched…

This has appeared in the Guardian on-line series this evening, following my complaint about the 48 hour shut down and poor forum design last weekend:

Today’s article here

Please pass on and spread the word.

I was so angry with the press release in the guardian on line on 4th January: Article here that I decided to complain to the Guardian that night.

thanks

Mark

  1. I think I ruffled someone's feathers - see my latest blog post - the mind boggles ->>

  2. To be honest I'm surprised anybody noticed. Look, things break. It happens. We moan when the Tube is out, the flight is delayed etc. But Hey has your car never broken down or had a puncture? Have you never had a washing machine go plunk? You can't design things that don't break, I'm an Engineer, I know.

    But that's a whole different story to the way these facilities are administered and controlled.

  3. Absolutely I agree - what I obejcted to was the way it was handled, coupled with the press announcement the same day saying how good the site is.

  4. I have just clicked on the link about volunteers getting a helping hand with the pledge thingie! Hey?
    Well, I am going to enter a question here: how does that work?
    To me the neighbourly section makes no sense at all and the only pledge I entered was to stop moaning which was suggested by weggie and which was despatched to new pastures instantly, which I take as an acknowledgement they like my moaning comments!

  5. It's a good job the website didn't fail yesterday and today isn't it?

  6. I don't understand why the whole damned thing is not part of the budget cuts. Its demise would have worried nobody, and money would have been saved painlessly.

  7. Yes, Weggis - and beware of the porcine aviators!

  8. A comment posted to the neighbourhood section of Redbridge-i yesterday has been censored by the Stasi this morning. Bloody dictatorship at our expense!

  9. And another. Free speech is a huma right, except in North Vietnam and Deadbridge.

  10. It would be nice if we could get a bullet point list of what our objections to the new redridge i website are.
    I, personally, think that the rapport between the redimanagement team and residents of the borough is one of dominance from the management and the residents either like it or not. By the look of things, not!
    Isn't it telling that they try to woo contributions by a thread like Valentine messages, where you, apparently, need to be known to be together legally for the contribution to appear. Or perhaps I am mistaken and they only curtail the ones coming from people they think they know a bit about!
    Worrying about encouraging illicit affairs is so funny! Aren't we moral at the Town Hall!

  13. Morris,
    I understand your frustration, it is why this blog was set up, but please do not make personal attacks on this site.

  14. Sorry, Redbridge Eye, I did not regard it as a personal attack - more a statement of fact.
