Windows Live Spacebook

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on December 15, 2008


I think that just about covers everyone’s feelings on what’s happened on here recently? Their moto should be “Windows Live Spacebook. Fucking things up so you don’t have to!”. A lot of people are really upset with what WLS’s have done, I’ve read the team blog and every comment on there is a negative one! Even one of my blog friends who’s been blogging on here since it practically started is deleting his Live Space after Christmas if they haven’t fix things! WLS’s have messed up pretty bad!

It’s not really about people rejecting change, which is what I’m sure the people at WLS’s are thinking – it’s about functionality and ease! People liked WLS’s because it was EASIER than MySpace, Facebook and all the other social networking sites! It didn’t require a lot of HTML knowledge, changing colours and layouts were simple (btw… MySpace has adopted the WLS’s way of being able to move your modules about! So MySpace were copying Windows Live spaces! And then WLS’s shoots itself in the foot by messing up completely!). Even the Windows Live Spaces home page was easy to navigate! Was easy to up-load photos and rearrange them! But now! I can’t even find myself around the home page!

To be honest I haven’t spent much time on WLS’s, not because it’s bad but because I can’t even view it in Internet Explorer 7! So I got in contact with the WLS’s team and they didn’t solve the problem and they’ve passed me on to someone else… who HASN’T got back to me like they said they would! So I checked if I could sign in with our other PC upstairs, and I could! So there’s something wrong with my browser settings? But how can that be when I rarely touch the browser and in this case I hadn’t touched it for months! I just wasn’t able to access the space since WLS’s did all the changes! I’ve reinstalled IE7, didn’t make a difference, I downloaded IE8 Beta and that didn’t work so now I’m forced to use Firefox, which I hate because it does my eyes in and I can’t do certain things I could do in IE7!

So, I aint got much idea what’s up with my browser, but I will say I’ll stay on WLS’s for the time being because some people like reading my blogs, even if it is a pain to use and navigate. I don’t think things will stay the same for long, if the WLS’s team’s plan to attract more Facebookers with the new changes fails, then I think they’ll be putting things basically back to normal or reinvent it totally. Either way a browser problem or changes wont see me off yet!

WLS’s does it again!

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on December 5, 2008

Right, I CAN’T get in to my home page on Internet Explorer 7! No matter which part of Windows Live network I try to sign in by I can’t get in! So, I am using Firefox at the moment! For those of you who don’t use Firefox it is crap for use with Live Spaces! I can’t tell what’s new and what’s not because Firefox doesn’t and can’t show every new update or application on Live Spaces! I think  may have to use Firefox plug-ins to see everything but I don’t like using Firefox! I want to know why I can’t use IE7 while all my friends on Live Spaces can! My IE7 is no different to anyone else’s! I like the convenience of getting in to my hotmail and Live space via MSN!

At first I thought Live Spaces had blocked me while they were over hauling and changing the network! If you think about it, blocking the IP address from connecting to the network would stop a lot of people from making new spaces from the same computer. So I thought maybe they blocked me yesterday while they were making changes! They couldn’t block me through Firefox as it isn’t their browser is it?

Anyway, I’m going to get in contact with the WLS’s team and see what they say, if they can’t fix this then I don’t think I’ll be spending a lot of time here anymore. I do not like using the Firefox browser because I can’t tell what the hell is what and I don’t like the feel of it anyway! I only had it in reserve in case IE7 stopped working and for learning to build web pages!

Hopefully this problem will be sorted soon and I can start visiting you again and finish my other two blogs off! Till then take care and I’ll be in touch! Love to all! – Phil
