There's not really an emoticon that says "I'm sorry I honked your boobs, and that you weren't a fan of that."

It may be back up again, but it's not improved. 

 

They need to burn it to the ground and start from scratch.  I have to refresh the page several times before a cursor will appear in the comment box.  It no longer allows me to post pictures, gifs or video.  You can't copy and paste images from a website.

 

This site is broken beyond repair.  The number of users dwindles further every day.  Honestly, I don't know why they offer the site if they don't care enough to make it usable.  Between Pat Dooley rambling about himself and music in the "sports" section and this malfunctioning "forum", I would be ashamed to have my name tied to the Gainesville Sun's sports section.  It's honestly like no one at the Sun cares anymore.  

 

Anyone remember back when AT&T didn't care about customer service or innovation because they had a monopoly?  When they were finally forced to compete, innovation flourished.  The Sun has depended on a local monopoly for far too long.  The internet has ended the monopoly and yet the Sun has refused to adapt.

 

If the Sun wants to survive and be viable they need to clear out the dead wood, hire people that can connect with an audience and provide an online experience that won't leave us shaking our heads in disbelief.  The Sun did not realize what they had in Aschoff and Abolverde.  They had two young writers that connected with the audience and provided timely and informative information.  They let them leave for a bigger stage while retaining Dooley who is somehow convinced that readers aren't really interested in sports, but really want to hear him complain about every minor inconvenience he encounters.

 

I tried my best to be a consumer of the Sun.  I gave up my subscription years ago for the aforementioned reasons.  I stopped checking the news portion of the website around a year ago.  It won't be long before I give up on this "forum".  There are simply too many options out there that actually care about the product they provide.

 

Even in the present environment of competition with free sites, the Sun could flourish.  If only they had writers and administrators that actually took pride in what they do.

We will go on to the end, whatever the cost may be....

I did not notice the issues, it is not properly moderated but has usually worked as intended.  When they shut it down management spoke clearly about how little it matters to them.

We made a mistake with the extension, this guy deserves to be gone before more damage is done, but we just can't afford it, so hold on to your hats and try to be positive.

what ever happen to the good 'ole days....laser beams and hot chicks woven within real gator sports discussions?  Old timers remember the oft used question: "pic?"  Those all made the banter on this site riveting and entertaining.  It helped that Meyer was running the table too....

What was the dude's name?  NCGatorbait or some such.....he always posted in blue font.  Your "pics?" reminded me of him.
