You say you want a revolution… part 4…

Yes, once again I am running the risk of calling down upon my crack squirrel-stuffed cranium the wrath of the WordPress Overlords, by fomenting revolution against their new, unwanted changes.

How many times have I had to do this? I can’t even remember.

I have taken it upon myself to create a new corporate logo for the good people at WordPress…

a 1 a 4

I am not trying to be mean-spirited, but these changes are horrible… especially if you are a computer moron like me. I just wish that WordPress would spend more time pressing words and less time pressing their hands over their ears. Many of us are feeling very ignored. We know you pay people, and they have to justify their salaries by doing some kind of work… but are these changes only aimed at the high-end users who pay for expensive themes? I mean, to be brutally honest, it wasn’t like your ‘dashboard’… which is now called something else, or so I hear… was all that user-friendly to begin with. It is not intuitive to put new widgets with links in your sidebar. I had to have friends help me with that.

I don’t mean to sound whiny and spoiled, because I really do love blogging here, and for the most part, I love what you do… but the other reason I chose monkeys for your new logo is because we need to remember that evolution means changing for the better… not just changing for the sake of changing.

Anyway, thanks for letting me get this off my chest. I am giving a few people a forum in which to express their anger… which just might distract them enough so that they do not show up at your corporate castle carrying torches and pitchforks.

    It’s just annoying when you have to rediscover how to start writing a new post, they keep changing the methods.

    They should just email when they make a change saying how great it is and should be of benefit.

  2. I don’t know if other users like the proposed changes or not. I hope WP leaves things as they are. I recently screwed up my blog going for a more functional layout. I moved to a self-hosted site and realized I was too tech-challenged to handle behind-the-scenes. I came back to WP – where they are kind to tech-bananas. This banana needs easy-to-use. So I hope monkeys like bananas 🙂

    If you think this site is reason to pout and whine, I can recommend a worse one for ya. But, they only make worse changes once a year. This place has made flips and flops at least 3 times this year alone. Probably five times. And, for me, they’re not the worst changes. I have found my way around okay. But, I see these lil explanations of “improvements” and don’t quite grasp what’s “better.” I, for one, was seriously concerned my account had been hacked when I got “beep boop beep” on the screen every time I wanted to start a post.

    I guess I really haven’t cared one way or another about the changes. I invested in the “whole package” when I signed on so I can use the premium themes. I bought it because I hoped it would make it simpler for me to use. I don’t think it worked. Maybe it’s my lack of time to work on it but it seems harder than any other site I use including the company site I manage.

  5. LOL! Give them a piece of your mind. I would, but there’s not much of my mind left.
