Pheeeew this site is a slow moving train wreck. Half my posts don't show as having gone through and my notifications don't load properly like 90% of the time. I can't even check my notifications right now! And there's the fact that it's broken to bits on Tapatalk so I now have to use the mobile site. And the mobile site is... Not pretty and full of glitches. The UI is honestly painful, especially after comparing it to EDC and other sites which have a beautiful UI and layout.

I thought the whole VerticalScope handoff happened in May ish. I knew they'd be making policy changes, but I'd hoped there were plans to give the site a makeover and make it function properly again. Is that no longer in the cards? It sucks to be left with a non-functioning site because admin was awful and now we've been handed off to the soulless corpos.

*I'll let everybody in on a secret: EDC is a fully functioning site just like MPA but works flawlessly. You should check it out if you haven't already.

I'm so uncomfortable with the skin I'm in.
The mirror's telling me that I'll never win.
It's so hard to know these days if anybody feels the same.
I'd give anything for some company.

I've been hearing people say they don't have any pain.
They've been finding every answer it's just me that's insane.
I've been battling it out with the demons within.
I'm so uncomfortable.

I think a lot of people have been waiting for the so-called positive changes, but other than deleting some forums that made them uncomfortable, you are right : There's been nothing.  Not even the tinyest effort to fix any of the glitches or anything. 

 

As I understand, it would take weeks to transfer all of our data onto new forum software, which is probably not sounding like a money-making proposition to them, so my guess is that they'll simply delete the whole site, and expect everyone to be happy about starting from scratch again on some site that they've configured on their own.

 

Them being experts in eating disorders, that is. 

 

Or perhaps not. I know the mods are trying to advocate for us and they deserve credit for that.   But seeing as how VS's main concern is $$, and we've seen months with no action, and they own hundreds of forums already, I'm not expecting a lot from them I'll admit.

Eatingdisordercentral.com is EDC. It is run by Goddess Annea who was/is the head mod here. She was sick of the site here so started her own. And it is everything MPA should be

Lol Annea added that because they did a whole site overhaul in July and it was a fun way to announce the site. Why it stuck around, idk. It doesn't have confetti on the mobile site which is what I use. I don't know if it goes away or not actually.
