FWIW: the new interface is confusing to me, but then again, so was the old one. For reference, I was writing programs in FORTRAN on punch cards in college.

This reminds me of when I was a Lieutenant working with a highly classified weapon system. Every year or so we would get a major update: I guess they figured that if it was hard for us to keep up with all the references and constant training, it would be impossible for the commies to keep up. The result was that by the time you learned all the answers, they changed all the questions.

Top tier technical skills do not trump social skills. The proof emerges in hierarchy after hierarchy, across every enterprise and field. Technical superiority alone finds a low ceiling in the hierarchy, and the figures who reach the top echelons do so mostly on the merits and outcomes of their social acumen.

I can vouch for that, although I’ll add that physical attractiveness / presence weigh heavily in one’s “social acumen” score. There was a time in my life when I was arguably the best person in the world at what I did. I’m usually “the funny one” in whatever group I’m in, and I treat even the lowliest E-1 like a valuable member of the team. However, being built like a hobbit in a military organizations meant that I had to be twice as good to get half as much recognition as some guys whose sole qualifications were looking good in a uniform and their ability to kick in doors.

@Typo-MAGAshiv just so you know I'm not taking any of your criticisms personally, and I'm 100% not crying myself to sleep at night. Definitely not.

I didn’t code any of this website, at all. Wouldn’t know how to do it if I wanted to.

Is that supposed to DEER your behavior? Because it means you really have no standing to mock and criticize the feedback of site users!

Your opinion is not as important as you think it is.

You know what else isn't important to me?

My stack of VCOINS!

Regarding hubris, you clearly have an overinflated sense of self importance and you jump to all the wrong conclusions about me personally. Your opinion is not as important as you think it is.

Hey, a semi-shitpost that kind of mentions shit. How meta, or whatever.

@MentORPHEUS not to mention, taking criticism of one's work personally is fairly immature.

CC: @RPU_mike

And I know about maturity; after all, I'm more mature than any of you.

Nanny-nanny boo-boo, stick your heads in doo-doo.

@MentORPHEUS Oh, then it’s just a simple bug. Why the diatribe about all of your feelings and your “low desire”?

@Typo-MAGAshiv [snip] That said, a lot of things are still in progress! Please be patient and touch some grass in the meantime.

Lack of practical experience in client/end user facing positions confirmed.

Mocking and insulting the feedback of an enterprise's whale customers is an excellent way to hurt, maybe even kill the enterprise. Business history is full of examples of this type of hubris. Bud Light and New Coke make two textbook examples.

You may be an excellent coder. You may be putting in a lot of hard work on the sight's back end. One thing you are not is someone with the standing or community cred to cop this kind of cavalier attitude toward the userbase, without whom all your coding work will sit idle.

One of life's Red Pills that I struggled against as a young man, to the detriment of my career and social life until I swallowed it a chunk at a time as I learned: Top tier technical skills do not trump social skills. The proof emerges in hierarchy after hierarchy, across every enterprise and field. Technical superiority alone finds a low ceiling in the hierarchy, and the figures who reach the top echelons do so mostly on the merits and outcomes of their social acumen.
