I know I’m not the only one, this is becoming infuriating. I’ve noticed a trend that a lot of new sites like to follow new or different forms of code/scripting to make their site seem different from the rest and flashy and fantastic. Problem is, it all tends to go to shit and many of the site owners don’t bother or care to fix it.
Diaper Space: They have the whole video section of their site not being able to play any other form of video than FLV. Even worse, this isn’t a problem they can’t fix, on numerous occasions they simply say “It’s a free site, deal with it.” I’m sorry but free or not, it’s a site you own and need to maintain DS crew and you took that responsibility on the instant you created it.
ABKingdom: Every couple of weeks their gallery dies, and in the past year or so, I’ve seen at least half a dozen different formats and appearances for their gallery, as if they were always trying something new. What’s worse, there was nothing wrong with the original system they had which they are now actually back to.
Diapered Anime: Go click Recent Photos: 7 days. Look at the pictures left to right, top to bottom and read the dates of submission. There is no chronological OR alphabetical order to them whatsoever. This is a problem that has existed pretty much since the site was created, and nothing has been done to fix it. Hell, I can’t even find posts in the forums where people point it out (though I didn’t look fairly extensively, their advertising system makes viewing the site excruciatingly annoying).
ABDLPixel: Well we have this site back but now it’s flooded with popups, toolbars, and buttons all over every page making it just as worthless as the others.
Hell, ABY has been promising they’ll be back soon for over a year and a half now. Care4Baby, you can view some of the pictures but you actually have to be a little crafty to save any of the pictures if you want them on your PC (Btw: if anyone is wondering how, I use firefox and I go to Page Info >>> Media >>> should be a list for a bunch of PNG, BMP, and JPG images, scroll to find the image shown then hit save as. That is the only way I’ve ever been able to do it.)
Seems Daily Diapers is the only one with a gallery that’s actually consistent and functional, and very user friendly to boot. And yet…no one else seems to want to use it? And while their video section is pretty much barren considering how many people boycott it for the “No messing videos” rule, at least that one actually works!
Look, I’m no programmer but if the owners of the websites can create so many complicated things like they do, why can’t they keep the gallery simple? Is it really that hard to do?
