    The fuck is this new shit? :ugh:

    I don't mind the fact that they'v decided to go all "web 2.0" on us and shit, but the site isn't even working properly. And i'm not just talking about certain web pages not being accessible or it being slow.

    There's very little links that work, you don't know exactly where to go and shit's gone all fuckery up. And when do i need to sign up to Imaginova just to be able to access Newsarama? The fuck?

    For those of you who may not know it, Newsarama was bought out by Imaginova, and they promised that they'd still be the same and all that shit. But now they're gone down the fucking drain.

    I'm going to give it a chance over the next couple of days, but if shit doesn't start working out soon enough i'm switching to aintitcool or some shit.

    *edit*

    Okay, and they've fucked up the old forum and created a brand new one. The shit is going fucking doooown.

    *Edit 2*

    Found out what caused the big stinkup about not being able to register. Apparently you can't have Adblock on AT ALL on Newsarama anymore... You have to allow it or else the buttons and shit won't work for you =/

    *Edit 3*
    Apparently Newsarama can figure out that i'm registered on the website and send me a password resetting email, and let me reset my password, but doesn't recognise my email when i try to login... :hsugh:

    *Edit 4*

    It works on IE. NOT Firefox. I tried everything on firefox and even disabled every single add-on i had (not many, like 5) and shit still didn't work. I switch to IE and voila, like magic. Also managed to login, though the forum is pretty craptastic.

    i liked the old version...those pellet threads on the side were kickass.

    meh, comicbookresources is better anyways article-wise...the CBR forums are just as creepy as newsarama's boards.

    in other news: i don't care

    Yeah, it works now, seems they fixed it after a while.
    But it was a fuck-up earlier. Took four hours for them to fix one compatability issue =/
