Not cool, LJ.  
So. LiveJournal decided that they are no longer accepting "/" in their tags, which means everything in the tagging system for pairings and others including the forwardslash is completely nonfunctional, thus making things even harder to identify and locate.

NOT COOL ELJAY, NOT COOL AT ALL. FIX THIS ASAP OR FEEL THE WRATH OF MANY USERS.

*silently fumes at douchenozzles responsible*

ETA: It seems like this was an unintentional fluke and they are currently working on fixing it, so problem somewhat averted. Although many of the new features added seem to be of much annoyance, and rightfully so. Sometimes when they add something new it can be something I don't care for so I ignore it, but it seems like they keep adding new stuff that isn't really necessary and without options of turning it off and yeah, it's understandably annoying.

Me too. I'm hoping it gets fixed back to normal soon because many people aren't happy with this setup. I feel most terrible for all the pairing communities out there. :(

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? This sucks! How are we supposed to search for pairings in fic comms and writing journals!? ARE THEY SERIOUS!?

*FUMES*
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on September 1st, 2010 04:07 am (UTC)
THEY EXPECT US TO DO MOAR TIME CONSUMING WORK I GUESS, IDK.

I'm hoping this is actually a temporary fluke when they were adding on the new features and it screwed something up in the system, otherwise they are going to be facing a shitload of angry people.

I wish they would stop changing the tags. Didn't they just change something else where they made the spaces in tags go from + to %20 when you type it in to the address bar or have a saved link?

And what is with the Facebook and Twitter thing? I don't get it.
Renée: Blair Waldorf.rogueslayer452 on September 1st, 2010 04:59 am (UTC)
I think so, but it seems like they're attempting to fix this problem that was deemed unintentional, although when it'll go back to normal they aren't sure. But at least it'll be fixed, so that's something.

I don't get the Facebook/Twitter thing either. Also I don't get the function of pingbacks. *is confused*
Kevin Jonesmulder200 on September 1st, 2010 07:20 am (UTC)
What I don't get is the whole facebook/Twitter thing. What would you crosspost from that?!

And I hope they get the / thing fixed soon! It's very annoying.
Renéerogueslayer452 on September 1st, 2010 07:36 am (UTC)
I don't get it either, especially the Twitter thing. O_o

I agree, it is very annoying although I think it happened today so the fact that they're getting on it immediately is a good thing. Although I think they should listen to what people are saying about the new add-ons with the FB/Twitter and this thing of Pingbacks when I have no idea what all that is about.

Wow! That sounds like something Fanfic.net would do (and has done).

Why so stupid LJ?
Renée: Castiel/Lucifer. Angels of the Lord.rogueslayer452 on September 1st, 2010 05:04 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately this isn't the first time LJ has created some shenanigans like this, and it certainly won't be the last.

What I don't get is why they're adding these new features without notifying their users beforehand, or taking votes on whether this could benefit us and if there should be an option for those that want new features or not. I mean, the whole connection thing with FB/Twitter is certainly not something a lot of people want, with keeping themselves separate from their IRL communications. I mean, it's a nice thought, but a little consideration would be nice.

UGH. FUCKING LJ. Why don't you just own up to your shit for once? Everything they do seems to be "unintentional flukes" when the majority of folk rage about it.
ALSO OMG, I DID NOT REALIZE THEY FUCKED WITH MY TAGS TOO. JESUS ON A POGOSTICK. How am I supposed to get my fangirl time on in my fic comms????
Renée: Caprica. Zoe Graystone.rogueslayer452 on September 2nd, 2010 04:37 am (UTC)
IRRITATION, CAN YOU FEELS IT?! >:O

They're attempting to fix the tags bit but everything else it seems like they're "compiling comments" in order to make a decision on what needs to be changed when it's abundantly clear that nobody wants this feature. I think the main frustration for me is that they seem to update the site without really notifying us about what they're adding as new features. Wouldn't it be better if they were to ask people whether they wanted this feature in the first place, or anything else they try to update with? It seems rather inconsiderate.
