Homely, But Problematic (Expanded)
I've written this post once before but due to the word limit in Prose's challenge I couldn't say all that I wanted to say. So I'm expanding on that.
I've been on Prose for five years. I've made new friends, but I've also seen friends leave. The best part of Prose is the community. However Prose has a management problem.
For starters, they need to continually inform us when updates are being made and what problems are being fixed, and trust me there are plenty of problems. Ever since Prose introduced it's new version it also introduced a boat load of problems that we now have to contend with. Let's list them out, shall we?
Problem 1: I've noticed is that whenever someone tries to tag twenty people those people are not notified. I've been asking about this for a couple months now. Why wasn't this fixed or addressed?
Problem 2: I can't change my profile picture or my background picture.
Problem 3: For every challenge we create for a specific portal not a single post is added to said portal. Here are some examples below:
-www.theprose.com/challenge/12823 - this challenge was made for the Comedy portal but none of the entries are being added to the Comedy portal.
-www.theprose.com/challenge/12812 - this challenge was made for the Stream of Consciousness portal but none of these entries are being added to the Stream of Consciousness portal
-www.theprose.com/challenge/12815 - this challenge was made for the Fiction portal but none of these entries are being added to said portal.
-theprose.com/challenge/12818 - this challenge was made for the Religion portal. Second verse, same as the first.
Every entry to whatever challenge someone creates does not go into the correct portal. This makes it extremely hard for me when I make my theme challenges, which are designed to help add posts to portals. The reason this is important is because having posts in portals keeps those portals active. Otherwise when Prose notices that people aren't posting in those portals they get shut down, which is unfair to those who tend to post in them.
Problem 4: We cannot make any sort of edits to the challenges or entries.
Problem 5: This isn't a bug but it is worth mentioning. Most of the challenges created by Prose don't make a lot of sense. I mean writing about travelling back in time and assassinating Ted Bundy? What? This challenge was released around Christmas week. Shouldn't they have made a challenge that had something to do with the holiday? I'm just saying.
I'm sure there are more problems on this site that needs to get sorted. If you've run into any more problems, write them in the comments below.
