Thank you Martin... Please let me know an ETA as I tend to grow very impatient when I spend money on things with the promise of something that I don't get in the end. Long story short, I am not fond of being lied too. Thanks again Martin
2 months, 2 weeks ago on <i class="icon-sun"></i> The Karma System
I just made two purchases too build my karma points up and help other programmers. That is good karma right?
It is extremely BAD karma too dupe someone out of their karma points as PL has just done with me. I waws only compensated for 1 purchase. The other 20 points never showed up. So the one thing that I really wanted with my Karma points I now have too wait. Shouldn't I get more karma for having too wait, and for my inconvenience?
I am frustrated cause what I want is now out of reach. What I wanted was once a part of the original framework but now in the DMS system you have too earn. I want my "Post Pins" I earned them :(
@erwanlescop @Kyle_n_Irving @flidget Unfortunately you are not wrong...
4 months, 1 week ago on Coming back online…
@PetraNiedermoser @Brenden Very well put Petra I could not agree more. I personally would give you oudles of karma points. You have been more patient then me, that is for sure. I had to start taking yoga classes this week just to keep calm lol While we wait and gain "Karma points" for our patience, we look unprofessional to our clients. I despise liars and lieing and I am not about to use the lame excuse to my clients that PL did with us, "We were hacked...whaa" wait we were hacked again... Come on enough is enough. Put it up or shut up... I mean how hard is it to just put up the old platform as well.
@knowtheoffers @PetraNiedermoser @rabergemann Who is the competitor??? Are they strapped wtih Bootstrap? I may get my money back then follow you out the door. I have tried to get PL to sell my co. their old platform which was still new for us ("PageLines") and then they can continue with their "DMS" and just let us take over PL but no word. I just want the old back up so those who want the old can roll and those who want to convert feel free...no pun intended
By End of Week:
@PetraNiedermoser And you were giving me a hard time about my patience the other day lol. We spent one week in workflow workshops to learn this new system and they dumped it on us 2 weeks later. Grrrrrr I feel your frustrations... Hang in there... In the mean-while you might want to bust out notepad and start programing the ol' fasioned way ;)
@flidget @Kyle_n_Irving I trully find it hard to believe as well that any of this was to do with a hacker lol. IMO it was not a hacker but a slacker.
@Kyle_n_Irving@BrendenNo my intention is not in insult. It is to point out that sticking up for PL is not going to get things fixed. It simply sends a message of tollerance. A message that says it is ok to screw those who have already paid good money and just want to go back to doing what we do best and that is not complaining about there lack on forums. We just want to get back to programming.
We paid for convenience and your statement, "just can't access the pagelines dashboard at the moment" is counterdictive. The fact that none of us "just can't access the pagelines dashboard at the moment" denotes that it is broken. This is a big inconvenience when we are trying to access our store and prior purchases, sections, plugins, etc.
Your happy, that is great, I am happy that you are happy. However, if I were like you I would still be stuck with a pair of shoes I bought online that fell apart. No, I want and get what I paid for or I get refunded, as we all should.
@Kyle_n_Irving @Brenden All new workflows take a little getting used too. I appreciate the friendly advise on where to find it. I do know where to find it though.
However, I beg to differ with you and so will over 200 people who have complained about DMS being broken. I am glad you have 2 sites running on it. However, my company purchased the "Old Framework" Pro Dev v and we put up over 20 sites in 2 weeks that are now also broken because they have failed to complete a smooth transition. PL is failing misserably and you will not get any brownie points for sticking up for their failures, you will only get a brown nose.
They had a great platform and they dumped it for greed. I don't blame them for wanting to make more money, we all want that, but too force those who don't want to go to the DMS system is just greed and bad business.
@PageLines Come on guys, what are you doing!!! We are all being very patient. All we are asking is stop trying to force us into your broken piece of "DMS" and reactivate the old. Give us a choice! Let those who want to migrate do so and let the rest of us continue on our merry way. We understand that this is your world and we are just living in it. However, don't forget, we purchased land in your little world. That should entitle us to a little say.
@PetraNiedermoser Good to see you again :) I have had no luck getting PageLines to sell us the old platform. I am trying to help out all of us who have the old platform. It was a great starting point for anyone to expedite their projects. Now I fear that PL have just made a complete mess of things. If they wont sell us the old platform so we can get others back up and running, the least they could do is reactivate it themselves. BTW If you have not seen Wolverine yet, go watch, it was AMAZING :)
@Invisioning @Brenden what is your website? we will keep you informed if they do.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Your DMS awaits.
@Invisioning @Brenden Very well put and I completely agree. I am a huge fan of their old framework that is why I am trying to get them to sell us the old platform. We will pick up where they left off if they do :)
@PetraNiedermoser I will cash in my chips with that smile :) have to go but I will keep you informed on vogelwild.at :)
@AlexJuchniewicz@simplesitesLook at poor ol' blogmylunch he just spent good money on a theme that is broken as well. Do you think he wants to "let's give them a break shall we?" No he wants what he paid for. Not less then what he paid for.
@AlexJuchniewicz @Brenden @simplesites yes but invisioning made a good point. You don't throw out the old until the new is working and it is no different both ways you are out of good money spent.
@Invisioning We are right there with you on that one. We have a client that hired us to develop a non profit site before he dies. He was given 6mo in Jan so he is already on borrowed time. We don't have time to start over. We were counting on PL. They have let us all down :(
@AlexJuchniewicz@simplesitesHmmm that really isn't a good excuse though Alex. If you just bought a new car and the breaks went out because of a bug, would you be so quick to say, "let's give them a break shall we?" knowing that you just smashed your new car and are out all that money?
@PetraNiedermoser Business takes place in public all the time. Coffee shops, elevators, restraunts. Besides there is no better place to start with something like this. It lets others know not everyone is willing to dump them after the first date :)
