>Orange is being a responsible developer and site owner and you're all just pissing all over him for it.
A responsible developer and site owner would give regular updates to his site staff on the condition of important topics.
A responsible developer and site owner would know when pulling or going ahead with a change would be more appropriate.
A responsible developer and site owner would not purposely antagonise the other staff members when they have legitimate grievances.
A responsible developer and site owner would not completely ignore the opinions of the rest of his staff.
>You rushed the merge.
No, he, macil and I did, since the three of us knew it would happening that day.
Although in my defence, i didn't know it would happen almost literally as the episode started.
>And it broke the shit out of everything.
There was a minor url error and all of the boards did not rebuild initially due to the server trying to rebuild the entire site at once.
These were both fixed before or within the hour of the merge being rolled back, the only thing wrong with the merge at that point is the lack of features such as ponychans themes, specific markup such as ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE and the edit / deletion of posts by users.
And orange knew this, he knew exactly what was missing from the merge and he considered that reason enough to pull it.
From what i can gather, that plus the reactions of a few people in the chaos of the merger has spooked macil enough that he wants everything perfect before things merge for real.
This, orange has been present and responsive, albeit there is nothing for him to do right now until macil gives the go ahead.
>In fact, if we wanted it wasn't even an option. We were told we were going to get it and that was that.
There were like, at least two huge threads on ponychan alone just discussing the topic.
It was never a "We're doing this, suck it faggots." but instead a "We want to do this, what do you think faggots?" and i tried to make that as clear as possible every time i talked with people.
If we'd been told to fuck off en-masse, it wouldn't have been done, simple as that.
Oi, is that crap really needed?
