“Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.”—
T. S. Eliot - Burnt Norton
It’s the beginning of a new year, a new decade. It is the time to reflect on how time passes us by so relentlessly, and how fickle life can be. T.S. Eliot reminds us to live the present. Don’t waste anymore time. Make it count.
I have just been alerted to your new ‘Ask’ feature, which gives you exactly the same featureset as Formspring.me. I appreciate the fact you are trying to satisfy the Tumblrverse, but everyone would of been quite happy if you hadn’t. There was nothing broken, so nothing needed fixing on that front.
However; Tumblr is probably THE buggiest website I have ever used. Including Twitter. Everything is broken in some way or another and the website can not stay up for more than 50 minutes. As someone who likes to Tumbl and has a few Tumblogs (some with 1100 followers, some with 2600 followers), it frustrates me no end.
Everyone knows the core principles of a successful web application is keeping your feature-set clean, relevant and to do as little things as possible; as good as possible. This is just an un-needed.
Tumblr is a great place, with a great community but having watched quite a few people leave it because of the lack of visible care going into this place, I wonder what really is happening behind the scenes.
Please can you focus on what makes this website great? And less about random new toyfeatures.
Cheers very much,
Funny thing is, when I clicked ‘Like’ on this post, I got an error dialog. :)
