I haven't been online in a bit but noticed we've now got an "about" panel on our profiles, pretty neat. If we can customise our own bio etc, that would be another step

Bruh, the stats panels is revealing our followed games which is not cool. No harsh feelings on you but there is more bad out of this update than good.

Mmm, I didn't think about that. Fair point. I've only just noticed it on my profile as of today

Don't worry, but right now we are rising up a giant public complaint against Elo and he can't even send a site staff to talk to us instead of him. Nothing from Elo, absolutely nothing and even if there is a response, it'll probably be a promise that is never fulfilled.

The ability to hide certain things in settings would be fair, would keep people happy

Wait, @EloElo is a singular person? I thought it was a company.

I have spoken to a member of the site staff and they said that the devs are off for the weekend, everyone needs to just be patient. These things will be fixed.

No one is going to tell @jamesjames that you can edit bios?

I just noticed we have a bio section now, oops. I need to get with the times

This thread is a bit redundant

Why the fuck would you push an update without testing or feedback prior and then expect not to get shit on for doing changes no one likes?
Sorry, but they are not excused and its not about paitence and waiting for a fix alone.
Its about them fucking up once again

I agree that they messed up, but spamming the forums is not going to fix anything right now.

That's because they actually are a company. I don't know who that @EloElo account belongs to, but I don't think it's an official account for the company.

I'm not going to defend Elo since it's their job to ensure that issues like these don't go into production in the first place, but to say they haven't communicated at all is a bit misleading, when they sent their Community Manager to ask us for feedback personally:

You can still dunk on Elo for all the crap that arised from this update (which there's plenty of), but gotta give credit where credit's due.

Yeah, if @EloElo was really Elo, then they would have the Elo Staff badge on their profile.

I thought it was a singular person because @Secret_Wonky said: and HE can’t even send site staff. I took he as a singular person.

Elo is the owner of speedrun.com, so yes he is a person but he also like... you know owns the company.

 
  Act7Act7

Yea. That’s what I meant.

 
  valhallavalhalla

Elo is male too?

 
  [user deleted]

Well, I should use "they" for Elo, anyways that's besides the point of this thread.
