    Does AO suffer from feature-itis?

    Hey all...

    I wanted to poll if people agree with me that AntiOnline is suffering from feature-itis...

    All the new functions don't seem to make it easier to surf the website..

    They are neet though...

    so what do u think...
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    I think the features that've been moved into place are fairly functional. It doesn't take away from the overall site nor does it clutter up too much like some sites. It's not flash-driven, thank God, and as long as it maintains this level, I don't think anyone who's fairly new to the site would be overwhelmed.

    Good work, overall.
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    You're kidding me, right? Yeah, there are a bunch of features, some that even I haven't figured out yet. But I'm a geek! I love gadgets and gizmos! And all these exciting features are the "gadgets and gizmos" of the Internet! I love it! I could be entertained for hours just figuring out the doo-dads and whatcha-ma-callits on this site!

    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    I have to agree in that I like many of the new features. However, I wonder if anyone else is experiencing some things that I've run into: pages not loading, pictures not loading, replying and then reply disappears, responding to a poll and it ends up in the wrong poll location (??). Could all these features be overloading the system and/or the browser? (Ive experienced this both on my Mac using IE5 and Win2K Pro using IE5.5).

    I haven't noticed any issues with Opera, except the "Hack attempts" and "Router logs" pages, which have been down for quite some time for some networking reason. I think the features are fine... Although I do think that the mood indicator isn't really very practical (and it bloats the space posts use)... The country flag is borderline.

    We have to differentiate between useful and useless features. I love useful features and hate useless features...

    Is up to you which is which, but I think JP knows what I mean!!

    Sounds like you found the culprit. When using IE the site seems slow and bothersome. you switch over to Opera and rocks.

    And as for the reason for the thread. I like the new features, they were implemented well and thought out nicely.
