SBJ, I gave jotter a donut this morning. (More about that in a sec.) If you haven't noticed it by now, tip jars have changed - the hide button is where the recommend button used to be. It's not my job to question the wisdom of that design - which truly sucks, but what do I know about design? - but it's my job to point out design changes that are creating embarrassment and unintended downratings. I am EXTREMELY cranky about one thing: the HR failsafe, the "Are You Sure?" warning box, does not function on tip jars. WE NEED A FIX! WE NEED A FIX! WE NEED A FIX! WE....
In the meantime, check your personal comment ratings from time to time. I got an email right away when I dropped my donut on our darlin' Jotter (thanks, PDNC), so I checked mine. And discovered another inadvertent HR.
Also, if you see a tip jar with one stray donut and ten gazillion recs, please send a pm to whoever gave the HR. If they're like me, they'll thank you wholeheartedly.
You can read more about tip jars and other recent changes in this CU post by belinda ridgewood.
WHERE TO TURN: LINKS
☀ For more stuff sort of like this, the Cranky Users group.
☀ To get immediate response for technical help or urgent site problems, the contact form (be sure to select the tech support radio button). Note that THE BUG REPORT FORM HAS BEEN DECOMMISSIONED. To report a bug to the dev team now, you can use the tech support form, or you can comment in an elfling diary or send her a personal message. Congratulations to the development team for reducing the bug collection to a size where it can be drowned in the bathtub.
☀ For immediate catharsis, complain in a Cranky Users thread. These threads are regularly scanned by kos and developers, but it's not a guaranteed way to bring an issue to the attention of these folks. But sometimes you just need some sympathy from other cranky people! (And sometimes, other cranky people have advice that can help you.)
Our thanks to kos, the development team, and the Dkosopedia contributors for their vigorous efforts to deliver a site that works well and to help us know how to work it!
