What’s It Going To Be Then, Eh?

I need to take a moment of your time for a one question survey. Paying members, you don’t have to bother (yet another benefit of your membership!)

I’m still tumbling around in my head how to reshape my relationship with the free Sloper accounts, which are the majority of the visitors here. I’ve boiled it down to three choices. Please take a moment to give me your honest answer, since it will inform the direction I take. Thank you! This truly helps me.

Do Your Worst!

In spite of all evidence to the contrary, I’m quite fond of my readers (even the non-paying ones!) and want their Slope experience to be a good one. As many of you know, the bane of my existence has been what I’ve dubbed the Disappearing Comments Bug, which tends to take place when some poor soul is typing a very long comment and then, BLAMMO, it vanishes. We have spent countless hours, and my dollars, in pursuit of a fix, and we’ve just rolled out our latest attempt.

For the love of my personal savior Jesus H. Christ, do two things: (1) Go to either SlopeTalk or classic comments (your choice!) and hit Ctrl-F5 to make sure you’ve got the latest version (2) If, God forbid, you see this bug happen, email me. Don’t leave a comment with the hope I’ll see it (I won’t). Email me. And in defiance of the old “no news is good news” saw, if you do NOT see this problem happening, I’d like to know that too. And, with that, I shall thank you.
