I've been considering writing a post like this for some time, and here it is. Lets not waste a bunch of time screwing around with a "friendly" intro when I'm going to say how crap a lot of things are.
Why is this not consistent? There is a different amount of right-side padding on the post looking at the same area in the main blog view and an individual post. And here's the kicker: both are bad. The sidebar has too much margin either way, but at least in blog view the padding on the post isn't uneven as well.
This doesn't work at all. You can set it, and the value saves and is reloaded when viewing the profile page again, but changing it does nothing. It seems like this one died after reverting from the beta site, which doesn't make much sense. It's like it was rolled back, and then back some more, taking away not just the added functions of beta.destructoid, but some that were on regular old dtoid as well.
I don't think this tab has ever worked. It just goes to the "Gadzooks!" page because it's missing the "elephant" directory in the path. I know there was some other link or form submission that had similar results, but this isn't a hard fix. That it's sat broken for months is kind of ridiculous. I think there are one or two more things that are mispointed as well, but I haven't been able to find them again.
Toidlets are 2 things: Broken and worthless. The groups of the old beta.destructoid.com site had much more functionality and didn't require the one person that made the group to manage all the members. If I recall, it even said who owned it. When that was scrapped and toidlets were created, Red Veron created the PS3 FNF toidlet and I didn't track that down and get added for a couple weeks.
In the end, that didn't matter anyway, because the list doesn't appear to be displayed in any particular order. I guess that's fine for just a collection, but it's junk for anything else because it means that finding a specific post means scrolling past them one by one until you find it. Doubly worthless for FNF, which a chronological sort would be much more useful. I'm tagging them as PS3 FNF mostly as a formality at this point.
The cblogs are generally like this. It seems like a few changes have been made and no one ever followed up on them. This should take a single viewing of any CBlog page to show that it isn't coded correctly. I get the impression that the attention was focused on the front page and no one even looked at the cblogs after modifying this.
Why does all (or at least most) of this not work in the cblogs? With this, the only thing stopping the forums from being better blogging tools than the actual blogs is the lack of a fixed width.
This was removed a couple months ago now, I think. The rumor I heard was that "there is something better coming". Well that's slick, Destructoid. But why did you take away our ability to add youtube videos before that better thing was available? It doesn't make sense to me because if you just left it as is (or was), it would have been less work. Someone had to go in and modify things to remove it.
The beta.destructoid site, also known as "newtoid" was just a better site in general. I didn't like that the entirity of the forums were removed, but having forum and blog logins crossover was good, and as a whole the layout was better. It had great functionality with groups and was the first facelift the Cblogs got in years.
It also had a WYSIWYG editor for the cblogs (CKEditor, I believe) and a multi-image uploader. Honestly, it was buggy for a while, but it seemed like it got taken down just as it was running smoothly. Things were fixed and then it was gone. We were told it would be coming back sometime in the future when the kinks were iron out, but we seem to have some gradients and rounded corners crap instead.
Seriously, lets take care of repairs before we move on to improvements.
