Is this autoguide or is one of the admins drunk?
I'd say both. The admin made a post yesterday mentioning that we were getting an "upgrade" so I'm assuming what I saw today was what may be coming.

Oh god no they're gonna make it worse aren't they?

AG: Know what this site needs? More ads. Lots more. And they need to be more intrusive. So you can't escape them.

Went to go post on that announcement:

1. Error: Forum is not accepting new posts

Fuckin' el oh el. They do not want feedback. Anyway, I bet they're going to a new app riddled with ads, trying to make it more like instagram.

i just can't fucking wrap my head around how dumb the people at autoguide are. they are trying so hard and spending so much money to "fix" and "upgrade" things when it's new members + member retention that make or break a forum. revenue follows user activity, not vice versa. it's not fucking rocket science

plus i just realized they made all the previously private subsections (underground, etc.) public. only time will tell what else they managed to fuck up

they don't even tell us when they're doing this shit or even ask for our input. and they're all like "oUr ReSeArCh AnD uSeR FeEdBaCk SaYs We ShOuLd Do ThIs"

fuuuuuuuuuuuck you. it doesn't take research to realize that people are fucking sick of having ads shoved in their face (and paraded as legitimate threads, mind you) coupled with decisions that you would literally expect from a lobotomy patient, and a level of neglect that resulted in WEEKS of nobody being able to create a new god damn thread, AFTER i fucking told them there was a problem.

i don't even know what else to say. these people are fucking helpless

car forums aren't dead because everybody moved to facebook, they're dead because autoguide bought them all and did the same shit

Didn't know she was on Mythbusters but did see her on the rock crawling builder's show. Where they make it look easy to build a motor in 30 minutes.

Called to find out where the hell my torque converter was that I sent out to be remanufactured. They told me it was too broken to even fix. That is a new one, even for me.

Of course it would have been nice to know that when they got it TWO FUCKING WEEKS AGO.

Did you have a hernia mesh in stalled with roundup made from asbestos and have a structured settlement and you need cash now?

Rant

Moved the office back to our old office.

The people who we were renting this to told us they would be out by 09/01 and the carpets would be professionally cleaned. They called us a few days ago and said they were out and we could move in.

First of all, the carpets are fucking disgusting. How people can work here and destroy the carpets this bad is beyond me. They apparently brought their new puppy into the office and it shit all over everything, and chewed up the leather chairs we let them borrow... There are paper clippings all over the floor, it's like they never once vacuumed. There are even finger nail clippings.

They also moved the conference room table to another room, they pulled the screws out of the top of it to fit it into another room, and never put them back in...? So it's just resting on it.

Called in Centurylink to get the fax line moved over, he does it and leaves. Well something happened with the internet and it got shut off. Our phones use the internet, so we were idle.

Once we got internet, our phones weren't working because it's a new location.

Called phone company, took like 3 hours to get back. It was so stupid easy to change the phone IP address to the new one, but the IP address we have written near the modem isn't correct and there are like 9 different types of IP addresses in this phone, so you never know which one youre about to change lol.

Got that done, go to print, network printer isn't working. I wonder why? Oh yeah new IP address. BUT I CAN'T FIND THE DAMN SETTINGS TO CHANGE IT.

And we have a showing on my place 30 minutes after I get off work, it desperately needs the floors cleaned.


Also, the cat is going to hate leaving.

I'm in this office alone right now and it sounds like there are squirrels trying to get in the ceiling.

If it's a Konica try the password 1234567812345678

Somehow that was the password for all our printers no matter what property I went to.

If you are using a router from an ISP then I would get a different router that you can plug into the ISP router except for the router you get will be able to do much more services and you can change your LAN ip address to match your what you have from the old office location.

Basically turning in the isp router into just a modem.

I hate home depot but at least they have a point of sale in the fucking garden department. I went to Menards first. Shit was heavy and I can never find a cart there unlike home depot I know if I can't find one there will be some in the insulation isle.

Anycrap to get help in the garden section of Menards, you have to walk all the way to the center of the store, make an order, go back out to your truck, drive over to the side that says "lumber pickup" (should just say order pickup if they are not going to separate departments) lady checks your ticket and lifts stupid gate (im already being micromanaged lol) park where it says "order pickup here" then a lady in the window is waving her hand to the left, so I pull back out and move the back of the truck to the left, I still see her waving her hands, I don't know know what the fuck else she wants me to do so I just sit there until she comes out. Apparently the fork lift can't help me where I parked so I have to park parallel to a garage door. Picture a drunk guy thinking your garage door is a taco bell drive through. That's what this looks like. Then a fork lift shows up and says "follow me" okay what the fuck was with the parking shenanigans if I'm following the fork lift anyway? Jesus titty fuckin christ.

While I'm waiting for the fork lift guy to find a pallet, i realize I need a couple more item but there's no fucking way I'm going through all this shit again. I go back through the nazi papers please gate on the complete opposite end of the store and fuck outta here and go to home depot where I park right in front of the garden section, pick out a shrub I like and pay for it right fucking there. Logistics, how do it work?

Order new torque converter. Let's check where it's coming from.

...Florida.

Why does that give me a bad feeling?
