Default Do you like the new database?

Do you like the new database? I don't really like it. I mostly go on the internet with my kindle (Because when I'm on my laptop I usually play games!) and it takes ages to load. Yes, it looks much nicer, but I prefered the old one.

No need for a poll as its shortcomings have been recognised and the old data base is to be reinstated.

.....as much as the db crew have toiled on this new one it really doesn't do anything for me (no real structured black & white functionality like the old one had) ....... the old one was just fine and perhaps just needed a bit of 'tweaking' but this new one is just a big crazy maze..... I may even consider relinquishing my membership altogether here and just become a silent private collector ..........

Ok, now I've tried to get into the new database and it rejects my password. I try a reset and it gives me a 32-digit verification code that it promptly rejects. I quit.

Arrrrrrrrrgggg....

Yep it's a freaking mess, fortunately the old 'classic' database is back... Thank goodness. Management has advised me that ALL collections have again appeared under 'my collections', tho I suspect that quite a few photos may have been lost in all the moving about (I do the database updates of 1:400 and 1:200) which I'm fairly freaked out about...

The owners are the ones who decided to radically change the format of Wings900/DA.C around, not the Team members or other volunteers. We had no real say in it, which is why at the end of the day, it came out looking and working so crappily (if that's a word). Fortunately, belatedly the owners are now listening to what us collectors actually want in the database site and it's definitely not what they 'shared' with us... no No NO... Voice your concerns, LOUDLY and OFTEN, be HEARD and be SEEN to care... otherwise we're all screwed

Lou

Gah. Finally accessed the new DB, what a mess. No aircraft data, no organization, quite possibly the worst DB ever. Even though the old DB was a patchwork and vulnerable, why couldn't the basic layout be duplicated? It IS possible to replicate the old layout using updated code and safety software, programmers do it all the time. This was just change for the sake of change and saving money on a less-advanced DB.
